Having failed to book a hotel in Nottingham city centre, we were staying for one night at the Country Cottage hotel.
The reception was friendly enough and checking in was no problem. The hotel looked and felt more like a B&B (bed and breakfast) and the bar area and dining was a bit like a pub.
The rooms were very clean but the carpets were stained. We had only one (tired looking) towel for both of us - as did our friends who complained and got an extra. Decor was tired 90's with plastic bathroon fittings - the towel rail was so flimsey one feared breaking in by using it to hang up our only towel.
Rooms again - rather like a typical british B&B. There was a very limited supply of petty basic toletaries or £60 for the night.
Breakfast a choice of cereal or full English - chose the latter which was okay but again - like a B&B. We had our breakfast in one of the meeting rooms - complete with pull down projector screen - rickety breakfast tables and conference room chairs a la 1980's.
All this would have been totally fine for our one night stop had we not paid £120 for the experience. We felt ripped off. Very poor. I do not recommend this hotel to anyone reading Trip Advisor.
