I wouldn't normally have considered this hotel given it's location outside the city centre, but I was sent an email from DeVere with a 20 pound a night offer so I thought, why not.
How glad we were we took up their offer. The hotel is stylishly modern and is set in the beautifully laid out campus of Nottingham University. Rooms were good - fantastic shower rooms, comfy beds/pillows. Staff friendly in a genuine way - not just 'tick box' friendly. We didn't eat there in the evening but the menu looked good. We did have breakfast and I enjoyed that thoroughly - plenty of choice buffet style so if you leave hungry - your fault.
Unless you need to be in the City Centre at night for a specific reason, this would be my first choice. The hotel is about 3 miles out so easy car/taxi journey. We wandered around the campus in the evening - there are some walks through the various garden/lake areas which were very nice indeed. I will certainly stay here again if I'm in the area.
The hotel is opposite a smallish Conference Centre (where I suspect most of it's trade originates), but I wonder if they do 'deals' on non-conference days ? Worth asking.
