The hotel is quaint and historic. The rooms are spacious and comfortable. The pub is warm and friendly as are the staff. The food was excellent and reasonably priced. We enjoyed our stay very much and would highly recommend Notties.

I have stayed a few times at Notties hotel when visiting friends at Kings School. For me, both exemplify all I love about Natal, and expecially informal conviviality of the folk at Kings and Nottingham Road. The hotel has all the casual, helpful friendliness of the place.The hotel building is old, beautiful, unpretentious, reassuring and cosy. The food is always... More

The Nottingham Hotel has always been a family favorite . The staff are pleasant and very helpful. The dinners are excellent and dont forget about the Notties pub. Load of atmosphere. It is located in the centre of Midlands..

We have been to "Notties" (as it is commonly known) for lunch on a number of occasions recently. Food has been reasonably priced and "middle of the range" quality. Beware the small wine glass - wine by the glass is only R16 but the glasses are SMALL. The pub builds up a great atmosphere - particularly over weekends. The Hotel... More

If you are looking for anything more than about 2.5 stars, the this is not the place. Rooms are comfortable but a bit rundown. Breakfast is good, staff are excellent, friendly and welcoming. The bar is where it all happens on a Thursday and Friday night, so stick around until late for a good time. Enjoyed the stay, but not... More

For some unknown reason it is very difficult to find nice pet-friendly establishments in South Africa. Fortunately, Nottingham Road Hotel is one. They allow small pets by arrangement. We had a wonderful stay. Beautifully furnished, large room with a huge bathroom. Comfortable bedding and good heating for the cold night. Had dinner in the bar, which was good, and a... More

I recently left The Midlands and decided to stay over the night before I moved back down to Durban. Just as well, as we were shortly covered in freezing temperatures and heavy rain and hail. I must say I was impressed with the rooms, as the website photo's are quite outdated and can be off putting. I was pleasantly surprised... More

We had a wonderful stay. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The rooms are very well services. And just to add the chef is amazing. His Chicken schnitzel was the best be tasted. Well done to all.

We suggest that you either put hoooks/rails to hold wet towels in the bathroom and a small shelve to hold ladies cosmetics/toiletries etc in the bathroom. Also the water was luke warm in the bath and you need hot bath in cold weather. Service at the restuarant was very good as well as the receptionist was very friendly and helpful.... More

The area is beautiful, people are friendly. But there was very little sleep possible. There was a party in the bar until after 12. Someone came into my room screaming, realised it isn't their room and ran out, leaving the door still open. It wasn't the best of experiences ive had traveling.
