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.

After stopping in a number of Wetherspoons Hotels I'm still to find any real problems (not that I'm looking). Again this one was as good if not better than most the others. Room was very clean, quiet, just the hum of an extractor that can't be helped (I go prepared with ear plugs) and very comfortable. Staff were friendly as...

Worked very well for a one night stop over. The room was very pleasant and the breakfast was good too. It seemed to be a popular place for morning coffee for locals too which added to a good atmosphere there in the morning.
