As soon as you walk into the reception area you can feel the warmth that this hotel offers.
The staff here are very professional and quick to get you checked in and to your room.
The rooms are spacious and very clean the decor matches the hotel throuout.
The hotel food is a1 and the bar and restaurant staff are always on the go but have always got a pleasant smile and are always polite.
I would recommend this hotel and will be staying here again.

This is our 5th time staying here and it is as good and inviting as always. We did have some noise coming from the room next door to the one we were booked into but no sooner had we informed the reception we were moved and upgraded to another room. We were here for 5 days between Christmas and New Year and all members of staff were warm and welcoming as ever. It is great to go back somewhere where they remember you and treat you as a special guest. That is what a lot of other hotels need to learn as it can make all the difference when you decide to revisit a city. I must congratulate the manager for the way he runs the hotel as it comes across with all members of staff. To be greeted with the smiling faces make you know that you have done the right thing in coming back again.

Room Tip: Look out for the special bargains out of season.

Excellent value - will make this my no 1 choice when staying in Nottingham.

We stayed in an executive room on a dinner, bed and breakfast rate.
The room had a big deep bath and we were supplied with dressing gowns and slippers.
The bed was a little hard for my comfort but overall a very nice room.
There was a large flat screen TV in the room with Sky (including Sky sports)
And the hotel offered fast internet service - which I did not use much.
The evening meal (we had a set menu) was excellent quality and value, the breakfast however could easily be skipped as the food was not well prepared.

Stylish hotel in a lovely location but l had to take away a star because of upkeep. The bathroom door didn't close & the shower head hung limply from the wall as the fitting was broken. 3rd bed was faulty too & it kept collapsing as the leg kept sliding away. I could have reported this list to reception but quite frankly we weren't there long & I dont expect to submit a snagging list for the maintenance team. This is simply poor housekeeping.
Breakfast was good but I'd rather help myself to tea & coffee.
Enjoyed the books and pleasant seating and restaurant areas.
Would I stay again? Yes - but I will ask in advance for room to be in good working order.

upon arrival it was noted that we are returning guests, which was nice. Check in was speedy and efficient.

We stayed in an executive room on a dinner bed and breakfast rate. The room was spacious and the view over parkland was great. The room had a balcony door that could be opened (no balcony to step out on to though). Again we found the hotel very warm and actually slept with the balcony door open in February!

The food was a 3 course menu that was excellent and comparable to a number of Michelin recommended restaurants I have visited. Our main waiter was excellent, providing regular check in's to ensure the meal was going well. One waiter who brought our desserts was not as good, simply asking if we had ordered desserts and then standing looking bemused! Thankfully the desserts were excellent!

There is plentiful seating near the bar where I enjoyed and excellent cocktail named the "frisky bison".

Breakfast has great choices for a hotel if it's price/size. I am not normally a cooked breakfast fan when it's a serve yourself but I found the quality to be great.

I would return to the hotel especially with the special offer of D,B&B plus a bottle of Prosecco in an exec room for £100 - a bargain in my opinion!

From the food in the Brasserie to the bedroom this has got to be one of the best hotels we have stayed in for some time. Situated in the university campus surrounded by extensive woodland we came here as we were seeing a blues group locally.the town of Beeston is in a sorry state but the hotel made up for this

From the moment we arrived at the DeVere hotel to the moment we left we really couldn't fault it.
We had booked the room and I added a note on the reservation to say it was my birthday celebration just for a night away.
When we entered our room we noticed we had been upgraded and on the desk was a plate with two pieces of chocolate cake and the words Happy Birthday written in chocolate writing which I thought was a really nice touch.
The room was spotlessly clean and very roomy with a big comfy bed. The bathroom was really big with a walk in power shower that was gorgeous.
When we booked we added the breakfast option which turned out to be a really good idea. We were greeted on arrival and asked if we had eaten breakfast there before, we then had a full explanation of how it all worked. Everything was fresh and clean and as soon as we sat down we had someone come round asking if we wanted tea or coffee. It was a buffet style full cooked breakfast which there was plenty of and tasted great.
Every member of staff we spoke to or came across was very polite and friendly and we would highly recommend this venue for a stay in Nottingham.
