This is a very clean hotel. Its a family run hotel and they are very friendly.
The breakfasts are delicious and very healthily cooked.
Have to say the evening 3 course meal cooked by the owner who is a top chef was the most delicious meal I have ever had.
The hotel is quite near the rail station and the town.

Room Tip: All rooms are up a flight of stairs.

The food was great and the surprise meal was a really unique experience. The service was also very good, all the staff were friendly and helpful. The room was slightly on the cold side but It wouldn't stop me staying there again.

Excellent hotel discovered late by accident during my work travels.

Restaurant among the best I have sat in. Very pleasant surprise.

Room, bar area and welcome was first class.

Will certainly visit again next time I am in the area.

Four of us took advantage of the Winter Warmer Offer to enjoy and excellent meal in the Clowns Restaurant.
The food is always delicious and service attentive but not intrusive. I highly recommend the food here .

We stayed at the buckinghams for my partners birthday and they went above and beyond to accomodate us. We arrived to find our champagne chilling in the room as requested and the food in the restaurant was amazing. We had the silver menu and it was worth every single penny. The breakfast was also exceptional. If youre stayjng here i would highly recommend you dining in the restaurant. Lovely family and very accomodating. t

Warm welcome and very friendly, nice small family run hotel, food excellent. Recommended, chesterfield is a very nice town and the market is very good on Fridays and Saturdays, lots to see but as we stayed for one night only we were restricted in what we could do and see, all in all a very good hotel and and the town is worth a look.

We booked this hotel last minute as we were attending a gig in Chesterfield. Itr's walking distance to and from the town centre and has a few parking spaces in front or there's side road parking available. It's two old Victorian houses knocked into one with a conservatory on the back which forms the restaurant, a sitting room, small bar area and a private dining restaurant for special occasions. It's a family run hotel and they were all very friendly and chatty. Our room was at the top of the house, spotlessly clean and with an ensuite bath and overhead shower. There's no lift but we were offered help to carry our suitcases upstairs. We didn't eat in the restaurant as we were going out to a concert for the evening and we'd had a late lunch. we had a couple of drinks in the bar though before we left and the staff were chatty discussing what we'd like for breakfast the next morning. We explained we were both vegetarians and they said that wouldn't be a problem. We happily went off for the night to return at 11pm where we were happily accommodated on request with complimentary mineral water to take up with us, we slept soundly in a really comfy bed. Breakfast was nice, they'd remembered I liked mushrooms so they were served up with tomatoes and toast for my breakfast and hubby had his favourite poached eggs. Coffee was fresh, choice of juices and plenty of homemeade jams and marmalades to go with the toast. We couldn't fault it. We checked out and yes the drinks were a bit on the pricey side but then this is a family run operation ad they need to make a living. A bit less mark up though and slightly cheaper prices may mean more people would buy more! A pleasant experience though generally.
