If you read any reviews on here before April, then you may as well disregard them! I stayed here last year when it was Rutland square hotel and it had been taken over and apparently set for a major refurb to up the standard. Well, 7 months later and the hotel looks stunning with no expense spared! The welcoming entrance... More

I have just spent 3 x nights here in Nottingham. The hotel has just had a major re-furb and name change they did not stint. This is a really nice boutique hotel, literally seconds from the castle and a short walk to the centre of Nottingham. All an all I had a very nice stay here and would highly recommend... More

We had read some reviews on Rutland Square hotel. They were not good but we had booked so we went. We were not expecting what we got. The hotel had changed hands and name. The hotel is being refurbished to a very good standard. The workmen are still working on some floors but we're not any trouble or inconvenience to... More

Little did i know this hotel was the old Rutland SQ Hotel in Nottingham city centre. Website looked good so I booked in the day of arrival. Once at the hotel I needed to park! Car park next to the hotel and next to the bins! The hotel is at the latter part of a £5 million redevelopment. Who ever... More

We stayed at the Rutland Square Hotel (now the St James Hotel) a couple of weeks ago for a friends wedding. Although I live locally I hadn't been inside the hotel a years and I have to say the transformation is remarkable. What I remember as being pretty dated 80's decor is now really modern and the reception area is... More

The reception area has a WOW feeling, receptionist on arrival was extremely helpful and polite. Our room was newly furnished and exceptionally clean and of good size. The window opened (some hotels are very stuffy due to not being able to open windows!). Nice to have a bath and shower also. We had one problem with the room (610). When... More

I recently stayed at the hotel and I found the staff to be very welcoming. The manager Gary was very accommodating, also very courteous and nothing was too much for him to do when breakfast was served. The breakfast was absolutely delicious and a very wide choice to choose from too. Will definitely stay here again.

The staff at the Rutland Square are exceptional. The hotel is undergoing a re-furb and is a family owned establishment. Much more interesting than a typical run of the mill corporate hotel. Lovely location, great breakfast and you can find a large, quiet room if you ask! I wasn't sure at first as the hotel was in transition however can... More
