Mansfield Manor Hotel at Carr Bank park has introduced charges on its car park.
The hotel is now charging motorists £1 for an hour payable by mobile phone.
There is a parking penalty of £100 for those who do not pay.
A spokesman for the hotel said the charges were for the hotel’s own spaces only and did not apply to the spaces allocated for the Stables.
He said: “The hotel only has spaces for our own functions and weddings. A lot of people were parking there all day and we had to clamp down on it.”
Hotel owner Dane Doran said: “For six years it has been open to the public.
“Originally they were charging and I stopped it . But I have to have access for customers at the hotel and because of the traffic generated by the Stables this is very difficult.
“We don’t want people to stop walking their dogs ”
