Ah Nottingham, my favourite city! Stayed here recently whilst down for the test match V India. The hotel was absolutely fab.

The staff were just so friendly and nice. The... More

We stayed at this hotel in its previous incarnation (the Rutland Square). Since then it has been given a complete makeover as a rather trendy 'boutique' property (there is a big suite on the top floor that celebrities visiting Nottingham like to use - Bob Geldorf last week). The lobby and bar area are amazingly decorated, the breakfast room is... More

I last stayed in this hotel when it was the Rutland Square Hotel. To say it has had a makeover is a massive understatement. The entrance hall is spectacular. The bling is toned down in the bedrooms, which are clean, fresh, and pleasing. The bed was firm and the linen good quality. Toiletries were provided as was a spray of... More

St. James hotel is probably one of the best situated in Nottingham as its literally a 5 minute walk from the town square centre. it's surrounded by pubs and eateries as well as nightclubs of various descriptions, it's genuinely a perfect location. When me and my partner arrived there was some apprehension as we are a same sex couple which... More

A group of friends stayed for a night. The room was nice and clean. Decor was stylish and fresh. The room was a little hot but had a pedestal fan provided. Breakfast in the morning was buffet style, very tasty and fresh. Staff were pleasant. The location was great for heading in to the city centre and is walkable from... More

The location is great - within walking distance of the train or bus stations and very near the castle and restaurants. The front desk staff did a fast and efficient check in and out. The bed was comfortable, but the room was very small as you could not turn the desk chair even sideways between the bed and desk.The bathroom... More

What a difference a year makes!. We have stayed at St James Hotel (used to be Rutland Hotel) for the past 5 years - our husbands go to Cricket and us girls shop. The tired, but clean Rutland has been transformed into a very stylish modern boutique hotel. The staff, who have always been helpful and friendly are even more... More

Stayed just one night for my granddaughters graduation. Room was clean, comfortable and very stylishly decorated. There was even a perfumed spray for your pillow to help you sleep. Staff were helpful and friendly. There was a wide choice of breakfast foods with self service continental and the option of full English. My only concern was that the bacon was... More

Attended my son,s wedding reception at the Hotel and also stayed overnight. I must say the attention to detail for the wedding reception was outstanding and no issue was a problem. My granddaughter who had travelled from Melbourne Australia with the family for the wedding, was not happy with her meal and a suitable replacement was presented very quickly with... More

Had two night stay at St. James Hotel. Check in was very efficient & staff very polite. Dropped luggage to our rooms. Bedrooms were very clean & comfortable. We went to bar for food. Service was very slow & there was a lot of confusion as to whether the kitchen was open for food or not. Breakfast was ok. Grill... More
