Faultless in every way. Staff very obliging and nothing was to much trouble. The room and bed were excellent as was the bathroom. Very clean throughout as you'd expect from a Wetherspoons establishment

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 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.

Great hotel, perfectly located in the middle of Chesterfield. Rooms are spacious and clean with a range of coffee, tea, biscuits etc. Food and drinks in the bar are economically priced and a wide choice. It was market day so breakfast was incredibly busy. Although a good range of inexpensive dishes, breakfast arrived cold and there was a long queue... More

Stayed at The Portland Hotel last night, absolutely amazing. The rooms are spacious, spotlessly clean and the beds are so comfy. Loved the shower, loads of hot water. Nice touch was bottles of water in the room. Tea and coffee making facilities, hairdryer and tv in the room. Room service is available. Only one 'little moan'. There is a wardrobe... More

Great place to stay for shopping. Another Brilliant Wetherspoons hotel. Wish the ones in Leeds were as good. Very busy bar but fast service. Plus they stopped to register the 2 mins silence. Will be visiting again next year.
