Overall this hotel is lovely. I need not mention the stunning decor as it has already been said plenty of times. We stayed in the executive room and would recommend that option to everyone. The room was very big and had some lovely touches such as a huge TV with free view and a nespresso machine. The room did have... More

Wow. This place exceeded all expectations. We chose the four poster room. It was beautifully decorated and extremely clean.The room was very spacious and I dont think it lacked anything. All the staff were very friendly and the free glass of wine is a nice gesture. I would say if youre staying in nottingham city then look no further. This... More

The hotel was really close to the city centre but tucked away enough to offer a peaceful nights sleep. There were some nice touches like the complementary glass of wine when we arrived and little extras in the room - sleep spray, robes and slippers. The vibe was quite laid back and all staff very pleasant and professional. Breakfast was... More

The majority of my reviews are positive and I feel that I give fair reviews based on factual experiences and I in no way try to taint an establishments reputation. Unfortunately this is not one of them. The barmaid was pouring drinks, chatting, kissing and cuddling into to her boyfriend in plain view at the bar in front of guests.... More

The hotel is an absolute gem. From the decor which is fun and kitsch to the friendliness and professionalism of every single member of staff. It is what one would expect from a very high end establishment. The rooms are very comfortable and well appointed. The breakfast is of a very high quality. In short, this is definitely the place...

We stayed for one night prior to our daughter's University interview. The rooms were compact but scrupulously clean with lovely contemporary decor. Very comfortable bed and very quiet which was great as it is in the heart of the City. Parking close by. All of that aside what most impressed was the friendliness and helpfulness of all the staff. They... More

Arrived on 14th Feb for 1 night as i was attending a family wedding that day. Check in was smooth and efficient then we were directed to our room (320) not the biggest of rooms ( like other reviews space was about 12" between the bed and the wall) but for what we paid and the small amount of time...

Very impressed - lovely welcome and nice touch to invite you for a drink in the evening. The hotel is what I would call quirky but a nice quirky, so don't expect the run of the mill format you get in the countrywide groups. We didn't eat there save for breakfast which was good and they even made me an... More
