At that time, a spokesman for the buisiness said: "The building has lots of potential - and we want to make it a better place."

The company has carried out a thorough clean-up of the 73-room property.

The Derbyshire Times has contacted Prestige Hotels (Midlands) Ltd to ask for more information on the firm's plans and is awaiting a response.

Chesterfield Hotel, formerly the Station Hotel, opened in 1877 and closed on January 31, 2015, making it one of the town's longest-running businesses.

Over the years, it was a venue for thousands of occasions - including weddings, birthday celebrations and Christmas parties - and was a major employer.

According to a recent online poll by the Derbyshire Times, the majority of respondents would like to see the building reopen as a hotel.
