I stayed at this hotel for 2 nights as I was in Chesterfield for a friend's wedding.
I arrived late at night to check in and the staff at reception were among the most warm and friendly I have ever met, which was lovely!
The room was fairly decent - clean, beds well made, with tea/coffee and sparkling/still water out, hairdryer. The bathroom was especially clean. I mostly had a good night's sleep on both nights and the bed was very comfortable.
The location is great - right in the town centre, about a 10 minute walk from the train station.
Breakfast, or any kind of meals/drinks is available at the Wetherspoon's on the ground floor. I had a very large cooked breakfast for a very reasonable price indeed, especially compared to what other hotels try to charge sometimes!
The only thing I would say is that whilst there are pigeon spikes on a lot of the ledges on the exterior of the building, there are a lot of ledges without them and the facade is literally a magnet for pigeons, perching on the sign, window ledges, the eaves etc. I was woken up at about 5am by them cooing very loudly and about 7 of them flew off when I went to the window to see where they were. They really should make it impossible for pigeons to land there.
All in all though a good hotel to stay at.
