I stayed there two nights ago on a one-day business trip to the city. The hotel is well located, near the castle and is fairly quiet. The layout is unusual with a split-level bar / eating area and a twisty route to the rooms. My room was small though it was a single, the bathroom was very compact indeed and... More

Staff - some are great, others are mediocre, uninformed and disinterested. Food - breakfast was really good; there is no other food at all! The decor is cool; the rooms were boiling hot! There was a highchair in the bar; there are no baby-change facilities. This really is not a child-friendly place though. Lifts are small, there are steps all... More

The hotel's location is in the centre of Nottingham next to Nottingham Castle, the venue itself was superb with excellent facilities all round. We stayed in the penthouse suite which was absolutely amazing and extremely useful on the wedding day for... More

If you like stuffy, grubby little rooms this is the hotel for you. Only good thing about this place is the location. I booked for my partners birthday and was very disappointed when we walked into the tiny room overlooked by the carpark.

A great little hotel very close to our Nottingham offices and also close to the castle and other attractions. It is very quirky and possible some might find the decor a bit overpowering but I loved it. I had great service from everyone particularly the bar staff. Breakfast is a variety of continental, cooked from a buffet and muffins etc.... More
