Reception area outstanding lovely quirky touches, staff very friendly, small twin room but big enough for our one night stay, complimentry toiletries lovely, only two ordinary tea bags but reception gave us four more! Would definitely stay here again, pity it was a little noisy outside but hey its Saturday night in the city

Arrived here realising it was the same hotel I had stayed in for a stag do a year ago. Absolutely perfect location for the city centre, pleasant staff. Clean tidy rooms. Average shower and small bath so don't expect luxury. However booked it as they were best value for money in the city. Also they are a stones throw from... More

All the rooms offer the comfort and amenities you would expect and are aleays spotlessly clean. As a bonus the TV and coffee machine are always in working order and the water always runs hot when you want it to. Wake up calls, breakfast and taxis are always delivered on time and all the staff are happy to help, all... More

We were in room 202. Tiny room and very noisy both in terms of noise outside the hotel and noise from showers / flushing toilets in adjacent rooms. On drawing the noise to the attention of the receptionist when we checked out, she offered her apologies. Interior room space really was minute and not helped by two chairs which made... More

This is a hotel with a central location just around the corner from Nottingham castle and 5 minute walk into the city centre. We had an executive room on the third floor which was tastefully decorated, furnished and spotlessly clean. Breakfast consisted of a self service continental or full English. The reception staff were very friendly and helpful.

We needed a couple of reasonably priced rooms for 1 night in the middle of Nottingham. St James Hotel fulfilled that criteria. Easy walking distance to all things central, with hotel parking available. Old building, newly (ish) rebuilt, with a somewhat kitsch decor, but not unpleasant. Some interesting design features, some I wouldn't have chosen, but somehow it all works... More

We have stayed in quite a few hotels in Nottingham when visiting our son at University. Without mentioning names the big brand hotels could not compete with St James on many levels. There is confusion on the star rating of the hotel due to the recent purchase its still rated as a 3 star and its definitely a 4 star... More

The hotel looks very good inside and the check-in staff are friendly and efficient. My (double for single use) room was on the small side - basically enough room for a bed and space to walk round it so long as you're not too fat and prepared to go sideways. Bed very comfortable, although there was a random metal stag... More

Dear guest Thank you for taking the time to review your recent stay with us here at the St James Hotel, your feedback is very much appreciated. The hotel does offer several different room types. Our crash pads are sold for single occupancy, hence these rooms do have limited floor space. As you have stated the hotel is in a... More
