A group of 15 stayed here to celebrate a special birthday . I couldn't fault the hotel and staff. The rooms were all excellent and the staff in both the hotel and pub went out of there way to make sure the celebrations went well . I will definitely be trying a Wetherspoons hotel hopefully in the near future.

My wife and I decided to try the Wetherspoon experience for the first time and were very pleasantly surprised. Excellent town centre location but no late night noise. Friendly, helpful staff and a superb room, clean, well decorated and with a massive, comfortable bed. If this is the standard of all their hotels, we will be back !

Thank you Tony D for taking the time to comment. We charge a fee of £3.50 for parking to secure a space when requested as we only have 10 spaces and 22 rooms. Our £45 rate is our Sunday rate deal, we apologise you did not agree with our pricing. In regards to the black pudding it is an extra...

Wetherspoons have taken over the pub below (not sure when?), but don't let that put you off! The hotel above is really nice and very good vfm. Rooms are contemporarily and tastefully furnished (Hans Grohe bathroom fittings, no less!) And, if like me, you're a real ale buff, then there's a great changing supply in the bar below!

We had to go back to Chesterfield on business, so I thought I'd book this hotel again. What can I say, very happy again, the staff we encountered were friendly, and the room was brilliant, I've stopped in Travel Lodges Premier Inn, and their rooms (in some of those hotels) weren't anywhere near as good. The only downside is you...

This was a well maintained hotel. It felt newly refurbished and clean and well equipped room with en-suite. We were not forewarned of the kitchen being closed. For this reason only, I have marked down the service. For Breakfast the other Wetherspoons was just over 5 minutes walk away. The car park is small and we were lucky to get...

We stayed at the Portland Hotel in Chesterfield to meet with some friends and have a get together and catch-up. What a great time we had, but it was helped by what I can only describe as a Great Hotel, being well positioned on the market square in a town worth visiting if you haven’t been there before. There are...

Situated adjacent to the Market Square right in the town centre but the street is free of traffic. All the usual facilities and value for money benefits of a J.D. Wetherspoon House. Smart, clean and contemporary room.
