Was house hunting around the Chesterfield area and chose the Ibis, Chesterfield.
A little more expensive than the norm at £56 a night and on check-in was told that there was plenty of room and the hotel was barely full.
1215am I had some rowdy move in next door, crash bang wallop for over an hour then at 0340am someone directly above actually jumping off the bed onto the floor and laughing for almost 2 hours.
Didn't wake up the next day as I never actually went to sleep. The bed had more lumps in it than porridge too unfortunately.
Spoke with the duty manager in the morning about why wasn't the "night porter" walking around the corridors and why when the hotel was so empty could they not spread guests about - or at least put the people who leave the clubs in one area separately. Apparently the taxi drivers often drop off the clubbers to the Ibis in the early hours - so be warned !
I had intended to stay at this hotel for at least a week as the location was ideal - such a shame !
To be honest, the staff (just two of them) were really polite and I cannot fault them. But these two staff were manning reception, preparing breakfast (everything cooked was microwaved and tbh disgusting) and these same two staff clearing up and cleaning tables.
Quality of service and hotel was way below par and I am sure the overworked staff felt the same but were reluctant to comment !
No refund or reduction was offered so I cannot reccomend this hotel to anyone which is a shame as the staff were great !
