We spent a short break at the hotel and found it to be excellent value and to be highly recommended. The position of the hotel is very good for the town, the rooms were clean and comfortable and the food was good value and of good quality

The room was clean and spacious with a large bathroom with the shower over the bath. Never having been to Chesterfield before we got a taxi from the railway station which cost £5 but opted to walk back once we had found our way about. The hotel is in the town centre over looking the market place near bars, restaurants... More

I quite enjoyed my stay here, with the bar and dining just downstairs, and as soon as you leave the building you are in the middle of town, friendly staff, and slightly clean room would stay again. 3-4 star

Hard to pick fault with the service provided by the staff who were very helpful. The facilities were very good. I had a very clean and spacious twin room. The full english breakfast was good too. Car park reasonably priced.
