Stayed for one night with family for Strictly Come Dancing at the Nottingham Arena. Spotlessly clean hotel in a good central location. Rooms clean and fresh. Check in and out by the lovely Coralie was both friendly and efficient. We had coffee sitting on the comfy sofas on arrival, the lady serving was polite and friendly. The 'could do better... More

Stayed here for one night with a Hen party (the quiet nice kind) We loved it, the rooms were great ( I had a 'crashpad') small but perfectly formed, fantastic high pressure shower, The White Company toiletries, in particular a 'sleep spray' which was very appreciated! The breakfast in the morning was good, big selection of things. Tiny complaint is... More

Wonderful hotel in the centre of Nottingham, right next to the Castle. Handy for sightseeing, shopping and nightlife, but far enough away from the centre to be a little quieter. Extremely comfortable bedrooms and beds, lovely clean bathrooms and a boutique style decor. The staff are welcoming and friendly, and the bar is extremely reasonably priced. Breakfast was very good... More

The location is good, slightly out of the centre but close enough to walk to everything. This hotel looks very nice enough from the outside, the hotel foyer & restaurant/bar area are also aesthetically pleasing. The staff were as friendly as they needed to be. Once you get into the rooms you soon realise the money was not spent there... More

I went to St James hotel and the internet is very very poor in the room it practically does not work, it is unbeliveble that in 2016 something like this can happen as even in Africa at a 3 star hotel the internet works fine

We had our wedding reception at Rutland Square 15 years back and we returned to the renamed and refurbished St James for a weekend break. We didn't eat at the hotel so can only comment on the ambience, room and service. The make over with black and silver glitter corridors was a tad bizarre. The room was better though with... More

Hotel clean and well maintained. Staff were fab especially the bar staff. Feels like a family run hotel. Very welcoming. Room small but fully formed with all you need. Enjoyable comfortable stay. Breakfast had such a large variety that I've never seen before and so can cater for all tastes. Close to city centre and value for money.

Situated opposite the entrance to Nottingham Castle. I had a quiet room on the top floor, with no disturbance from the city centre or other guests. The bed and pillows were excellent, and there was a good selection of food for breakfast including hot cooked food. Close to the centre without being on a main street and easy walking distance...
