Leave the M1 at junction 29, approaching Chesterfield on the A619. At the A61 roundabout, take the second exit (middle lane); at the second roundabout, take the second exit again (middle lane towards town centre). On leaving this roundabout, get into the left-hand lane, bringing you to a give-way junction. Go straight ahead down Beetwell Street; our hotel and car park are on the right.


We have a car park, however there is limited space and on a 1st come 1st serve basis.
Please ring us on 01246 293600 to pre book your space to avoid disappointment.
Our car park is just £3.50 per night.

Local transport

The hotel is just a short walk from the bus station. Chesterfield train station is a 10-minute walk, with links to Sheffield. Also, there is a bus to Derby, departing from outside the hotel.

Local attractions

Derbyshire's largest town is an ideal example of the economic resurgence in an historic setting so typical of a northern metropolis. Perhaps most famous for its "Crooked Spire", the Church of St Mary and All Saints enjoys the kind of architectural curiosity rarely seen outside of Pisa. However, Chesterfield offers more than just calamitous construction to attract attention.

As well as the Peak District, Sherwood Forest is a mere quick getaway away and is relatively unchanged since the days when its most famous thieving philanthropist robbed in his hood. Historical attractions are littered around this medieval town, with the Chesterfield Museum and Art Gallery complemented by historic houses of Chatsworth, Hardwick Hall, Haddon Hall and Bolsover Castle. And if the bargains at Chesterfield Market don't catch your eye, you can take it easy at the cricket ground, boating lake, playground and sports centre of Queens Park. 

Meadow Hall Shopping Centre in Sheffield is a short drive away.
