On the positive side this hotel was clean, the rooms were large, the bed was HUGE (big enough for three people and very comfortable), the staff were very friendly and efficient and the food was very good. The hotel is particularly good value if you do their deal of bed, breakfast and evening meal for £120 for two people. This is only £21 more than b+b and so the two of you can eat in their restaurant for very little indeed. Do check up on how much your allowance is in the restaurant, however, as we were not told and overspent quite a bit. There is a good range of nice tea in the room and fresh milk in the fridge, but it would have been nice to have something better than Nescafe instant coffee.
On the negative side, having built the hotel next to a dual carriageway they didn't soundproof it very well and I found the noise of the traffic quite disturbing in the night. The room was quite stuffy and because of the noise you couldn't really open the windows. There is no real view - we had a view of Tesco Extra - and the extractor fan in the bathroom didn't work well. For a hotel this size the gym is tiny and it is surprising not to have a pool..
If I was sent to Chesterfield on business then I would want to stay here. If I was looking for a place to stay as a base for exploring the area then I would go somewhere that was in a nicer, quieter, location. Chesterfield itself doesn't have much to offer other than a wonderful church. It does have many clubs, but the town is quite run down.
