The Portland is in a great town centre location. The rooms are excellent, modern and very well set out. The pub on the ground floor is very attractive and welcoming with a really good atmosphere during our stay.

Perfect room for what we wanted, a night away for my other half with our 15 month old too. Great size family room, clean, well equipped and modern. Staff very friendly and helpful. Downstairs was a Weatherspoons... you know what your getting, very well priced beer and food. Would definitely stay again.

Our favourite hotel by far in Chesterfield. Well appointed modern very clean rooms. Staff are helpful and friendly. Only issues to raise would be for people with mobiligh issues to ask for a room on the first floor which is served by a lift. Breakfast is to purchase in Wetherspoons pub directly below the hotel.

Very good value for money. Bedroom excellent, with inglenook window overlooking market place. Plenty of staff, mostly young, all very cheerful. Food and drink was quickly served and all up to usual Wetherspoon's standards. We just squeezed into the small car-park. Perfect location for visiting Chesterfield. We were there for xmas lights switch on, xmas market and xmas tree festival...

We were on Floor 2 with no noise heard from the Pub. Room 219 was an excellent Twin. Lorraine on Reception was brilliant, nothing was too much trouble and she always held a friendly smile, Thank you. Breakfast was good on Saturday morning, not so fresh on Sunday. Overall though very impressed.
