“Great place to stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 February 2014

A very nice hotel with a fast check in, the room very nicely decorated. The bathroom was very modern and very spacious.

The food was to a high standard and very reasonably priced. The barman was very friendly and called me by name as I had booked food to my room he took the trouble to remember my name.

Breakfast was a full English with Tea, Toast, Tea/Coffee and a wide range of cereal and fruit.

All in All a great stay at a reasonable price.

I will return again

Me and my husband shared our wedding reception with our friends and family here and couldn't fault any part of our afternoon/evening! When we first walked in I was amazed at how wonderful the room looked. The staff were all very professional, friendly and welcoming...they all went to any lengths possible to give us exactly what we wanted. Such a lovely bunch of people! The food was absolutely delicious! All of our guests commented on the lovely food and staff and I would definitely recommend the hotel to everyone. We had the perfect wedding reception so thank you to everyone at the sandpiper hotel :)

Room Tip: we didn't use the fitness centre so can't comment on this...

I stayed here on business since the venue had been recommended by a customer, and to be honest I would normally stay somewhere more corporate so I wasn't expecting too much. Check in was efficient and my room was clean and comfortable. Although the room wasn't too tired the decor was starting to show it's age, and new modern bedding and curtains would transform it. I was however satisfied with the room since I was only going to be in it to sleep. The room was quiet and consequently I had a great night's sleep.

For breakfast you have to leave the hotel and enter the restaurant via a seperate entrance. I was pleasantly surprised by the variety of food all of which was cooked to order. I usually order fish when available, but my colleague's full English looked so good I decided to have the same. It was delicious, good quality food piping hot, no luke warm buffet here!

If I need to stay in the area again I would definately make this hotel my first choice; it is a shame that people who don't understand hotels such as how much breakfast usually costs, advance booking discounts, and being fair by giving a balanced review covering all aspects of a stay will influence the overall rating, don't let them put you off!

One final tip - make sure you look on the hotel's website to get the correct driving instructions or it may take a while to find the hotel! (There is plenty of secure parking when you do arrive!)

i stayed here for 4 nights midweek while working on business in the area. This hotel was a great find and i will be looking to stay here for the next few weeks if the price is right. My double room was spacious (enough room to roll out a yogo mat at one side of the bed), good size bath with shower over and everything is very clean. Central heat control that turns the 2 radiators on, a small shelf for tea, coffee and a biscuit, and a small wall-mounted flat screen TV. Bed is maybe a bit hard for my liking, and there is the old school blanket and white sheet rather than a duvet, but there is an extra blanket and pillows in the wardrobe. Free WiFi is a good bonus and huge car park with a controlled barrier makes me feel a bit more secure. Area is quiet so no noisy streets. The food is amazing for a small hotel and restaurant so i think the kitchen staff should be commended. There is a small cafe/bar area in the hotel itself that does a basic but decent sized menu, and next door is the main restaurant which has a bigger menu and more formal service. I don't need to eat anywhere else as i'm so impressed with the food here. All the staff have been helpful, friendly and good for a laugh with regulars. Chesterfield centre is a 10 minute drive away, and Sheffield centre and Meadowhall only 30 mins. At £40/£50 a night there really isn't anything to complain about!
