We needed to stay over at Chesterfield on the way up to Harrogate recently and the Portland was an hotel we had encountered some years ago.
Things have changed and it's a Wetherspoons now with a busy pub below serving excellent value for money food and drink - we enjoyed a 'two meals for £6.99' deal; you really can't go wrong.
Staff in all areas were friendly and helpful.
Our room was very spacious above the pub area below, decent sized TV and a large bathroom - the latter does need a little updating including a re-enamel to the bath and grouting to the tiling to bring it up to a better standard.
One word of warning with a front facing room the closing time outside the pub does make it very noisy indeed, so a rear facing room would help in preventing your 'beauty sleep' being disturbed.
In the morning we ventured downstairs for breakfast and there were already one or two visitors enjoying an 07.00hrs. early morning alcoholic drink - our breakfast was simple, tasty and again very good value for money.
All-in-all for what this establishment was it was difficult to fault in terms of excellent value for money, friendly service and just a few minor niggles and quibbles to consider for the future; but if you need a decent room for the night in Chesterfield and good value for money food and drink, then you cannot go wrong with The Portland Hotel.
