“fabulous accommodation - luxury on a budget”
Reviewed October 4, 2012

this is a fabulous place - the decor in the rooms is really lovely - much more akin to what you'd expect in a good quality hotel not a B & B. The owners are really nice friendly people - nothing is too much trouble - but they are not intrusive. There is quite a large space for residents to use with pool table and honesty bar and sofas and its located right next door to a great pub serving fantastic home-cooked food in quite modern surrounds. The breakfast was really nice too. It is fully wheelchair accessible too.

There are nice grounds with a hot tub (don't know if that works as it wasn't on when we stayed) and its in a lovely country location but also very close to Junction 29 of M1. The couple's goats were a particular hit with my son.

This would be a great place for a group of friends to get together but also a nice place for couples to stay. I would whole-heartedly recommend and will definitely be back.

Room Tip: large rooms had a sofa and more floor space but other rooms looked nice also

It's not often that I write a reminder to myself when I get in the car after leaving overnight accomodation to put a recommendation on Trip Advisor. This place is as Tina Turner would say - "Simply The Best".

From the moment I arrived I was warmly welcomed by John and personally shown round the facilities, he even put the sauna on for me.

No need to list the many extras which all the other reviewers have mentioned, this place has facilities that some four and five star hotels would envy. My room was spotless, free Wi Fi and even a chocolate on the pillow. Towelling robe was provided for my sauna at no extra charge.

I had dinner in the pub next door which was reasonable and of a good standard, although the pub was very quiet and reserved.

This place is now on my top three, and even looking for an excuse to stay near Nottingham again.

Room Tip: Room 2 was spacious with a good view, only small point to note was TV was on far wall.

My wife and I stayed 2 nights at Whitton Lodge, we had a garden room which was immaculate and well appointed. Used the hot tub which again was very clean and a great place to relax. Weather was not great but didn't matter too much as room was comfortable and airy. Revisited my youth with a game of snooker on the well kept table before going for an evening meal at the nearby Shoulder Pub. Food here was very good and reasonably priced.
Whitton Lodge is a great base to explore the Peak District from and the breakfast sets you up for the day.
Will definitely return as it was almost certainly the best B&B I have ever stayed in.

Room Tip: Ask for a garden room but I am sure you won't be disappointed with any of the rooms.

We had a lovely stay here.

We had room 1 which was huge! It had a corner sofa as well as dressing table and usual bedside cupboards, lots of wardrobe space and massive full height window looking over the large car park and goat field. Nice spacious bathroom. The only way this room could be enhanced would be to upgrade the bed to a king size which would still look small in such a big room.

This is a lovely countryside spot, with a good pub where 4 of us enjoyed an excellent meal. The only downside is that it is the only place to eat within walking distance and they don't do evening meals on Sundays.

Facilities at Whitton Lodge are impressive. Enormous lounge with a full size snooker table as well as 2 comfy sofas. There is a smaller room with a variety of gym equipment/ machines in it, a sauna, and a reading room.

All of these facilities are topped off with the most friendly, cheerful and helpful B&B owners we've come across in many years! Nothing was too much trouble, even our request to join in feeding the delightful goats - thanks Kim!

We stayed at Whitton Lodge on Saturday night (9th June) having come up to Chesterfield to see the Elton John concert and to visit family in Derbyshire.

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay and were made to feel very welcome by the owners Kim and John and their family. Loved our room which was spotless with a very comfy bed. We loved the idea of the honesty bar and breakfast on Sunday morning was superb.

We also stopped off on Saturday afternoon for lunch at the nearby pub The Shoulder. Food was excellent.

Highly recommend that anyone in the Chesterfield area stays at Whitton Lodge - you will not be dissappointed!

We had high hopes for this place as reviews rated it excellent. We found both Kim and John to be very warm hosts. Garden room was large and spotlessly clean with nice and spacious shower room. Breakfast was sumptuous and we could help ourselves to as many rounds of toast or tea and coffee which was fresh ground.

Things that can be improved - 1. Place needs softening up a bit - too much concrete very little in way of flowers. It would make a big difference along with a well kept lawn.

2. Shower drainage was poor and clogged up easily. Also the soap dispensers in the shower cubicle look nice but dont really work well

Things that cant be improved - Garden rooms have no windows only patio doors, so it got a bit claustrophobic and if you opened the doors no privacy. Sound insulation very poor, could hear chap next door snoring all night.

All in all was a nice stay and would stay again. If it was not for the above would definitely rate it 5 star.
