where to start ... the first time i entered (around 6 weeks ago) i was struck (not literally) by the sia-esque chandeliers ... upon further inspection, the whole ambience of this place is (and I mean in the andre 3000 sense) just cool ... as if i needed any encouragement, oscar's welcome and a free glass of wine set the...

You're not really spoilt for choice when it comes to hotels in Nottingham and the St Jame's is probably as good as it is going to get. It describes itself as a 'value boutique' hotel and that would be a fair description. The decor is 'disco kitsch' giving the impression you are walking into a nightclub rather than a hotel.... More

Stayed in the 4 poster suite,wow what a room. Room is large with a large en suite. In the en suite the jacuzzi plunge bath is more than big enough for 2 😆. Hotel staff could not do enough for us, they were attentive and very polite. The hotel is well maintained and gives the feel of opulence. Only downside... More

High end accommodation compared with most other available city centre hotels and worth the premium price. Reception staff polite, professional and friendly. Bar staff gave great friendly service too. Room immaculately kept, modern and very comfortable. Could maybe have done with a few more pillows. So far the best Nottingham city centre hotel we have found.

We highly recommend this hotel. Super location to city center, as well as train and bus stations and major sights. Yet it is a quiet area. Staff was nice and helpful. We originally got a room next to a noisy boiler room. Upon request, we were immediately moved to a new room which was nice and quiet.

Wow what a place and staff. All our experience from check in to check out was extraordinary. Rooms were clean to the highest standards with all necessary amenities. Linda from F&B was really helpful with all our requests. We will defined be back in the future.

Me and my girlfriend stayed in the St. James for one night and we loved it! I know we were lucky to get an executive room at that price so we enjoyed every minute of it =D The Hotel is really stylish and looks unique.

We arrived at the 2 o'clock check in time and paid the £8 parking charge which we thought was completely reasonable for 24 hours city centre parking. The lady on reception was lovely and remembered me ringing to book which was really nice ☺️ We went up to our room and were overwhelmed by the decor and facilities. We booked... More

A very clean and comfortable hotel. The only downside (therefore downgraded to 4 stars) was the size of the bedroom and bathroom. I was given a Crashpad, which consisted of a double bed - albeit comfortable- a very small wardrobe, a narrow floating shelf either side of bed (no drawers), a very small bathroom with poor ventilation, little room for...

Dear Sir, Thank you for taking the time to share your experience and feedback with us. The Crash Pads are compact rooms and are hence designed for the single traveller in mind.
