Pros; very clean, lovely decor, very quiet at night even on a Saturday, close to town in a nice part of the city centre, nespresso coffee machine in room, nice breakfast Cons; No air con or decent ventilation in bathroom. Toilet roll holders on the wall make it awkward to use the toilet. Rooms still require keys with big keyring... More

Stayed here to go to Nottingham races and it was excellent value for money. Nicely refurbished. Friendly staff. Lovely bar area. Only downside was the bathroom smelt a bit but overall no real complaints. Very good location. Central and close to shops, bars and restaurants.

My fiancé and I stayed for our anniversary in the St James hotel on the 13/08/2014. We loved every second of it, the only regret is that we only stayed for one night! The room was so lovely and clean and the staff were amazing. There was no view out our window but what do you expect when you're in... More

Great 2 night stay for 17 of us, the hotel staff were very helpful and accommodated our large group. Hotel décor is funky and within a great location, easy walking distance to most things you will need. Breakfast was hot and plentiful and although we were informed to book this the night before it is possible to do the following... More

Stayed just 3 nights. This is a really nice boutique hotel in a great location close to city center bars and restaurants. Room was clean, comfortable and very nice decorated. Staff were helpful and friendly. The breakfast was of the buffet variety and more than adequate. Will definitely stay here again.

Great stay for two nights. Hotel is clean. Not a big room, however we were hardly in the room. Newly refurbished - great job done albeit a bit over the top with the fancy cheap stuff. I loved it. Ask for slip of paper for parking the car next to the hotel instead of NPC. Saves money for sure. Service... More

Bit apprehensive after reading some of the reviews but it definitely exceeded our expectations. Easy to find and managed to park in the small hotel car park. Swift check in and two vouchers for a glass of wine. Room was large, clean and modern but did find the bathroom a bit small. Not a very inspiring view over the car... More

Stayed here for some weeks, while undertaking a contract in Nottingham. The hotel is in excellent condition, having recently been refurbished and the staff are very helpful and friendly. I used the Crash Pad rooms, which are small but, if all you want to do is sleep and shower in it, that's not an issue - the beds are also... More
