“Not as bad as the reviews say if you want a basic place to stay”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 16, 2009

It was clean enough, the twin room was huge....with twin bathrooms and the location is great, right in the centre. The rooms were very warm and the lifts are the slowest I've ever come across but for a basic room for a lads weekend away it fitted the bill marvellously....OK there's no way I'd go there for a romantic weekend or if I was wanting some luxury but it's cheap cheap cheap

to start off with got to the hotel looked at the outside and it didn't look at all welcoming, got to the room and it was supposed to be an executive room which clearly wasn't we got a room that had one window that was slanted open in other words broken and wouldn't shut! the carpet looked old and tatty, the bed sheet had a stain on and had rips in, the bathroom wasn't overly clean found hairs in the bath, the chairs looked old and it was a dull and lifeless looking room not worth its money I'd advice anyone to pay that bit more and go to the park plaza across the road as when I stopped before it was top quality well worth its money and it was only a three star then and it was perfect now its a four star and well worth stopping in. i'd say its false advertising on there website as it looks all perfect when it really isn't and needs doing up.

A normal city centre hotel decidedly average with nothing particularly giving it extra stars, but nothing worthing complaing about. Room was functional, a bit dated and not of bright decor but was fit for purpose. Location is good for accessing the City Centre. Ate breakfast and it was average for a UK hotel with the normal selection of hot and cold seledtions. Shower was above average. Reception appeared unwelcoming and while staff were not rude they were disinterested and not particularly helpful.
I wouldn't not stay here again, but there must be far better hotels than this in Nottingham.

I stayed in this hotel quite a few times because I had to find somewhere cheap to stay for a few days before moving in/out of the university halls. I mainly chose the hotel because of the location, price and because of free wireless internet in the room. The location was great, 5mins away from Broadmarsh shopping center, 10mins walk from the train station. I paid approximately GBP39/night.

The rooms were small, old and worn out. The desk were small and doesnt look too clean. The bathroom was alright but the door handle of the bathroom was broken. The TV were the old type of TV therefore not much choice of channels. The beds were small. Carpets were worn out and dirty, didnt feel like walking barefeet on it.

Overall, if your looking for a cheap hotel to stay in for a day or two and mainly want a city center location, it isnt that bad of a choice. Just don't expect too much from the hotel.

when you walk in you expect cleanliness in the front reception the lift smelt of urine. when we got to our floor the capet was stuck together with black tape. it looks and feels like a hostel even worse. when we got to our rooms we were shocked at the state of them. torn seats dirty cups and old milk expired biscuits. the dust was unbelievable, the ironing table had been ripped of the wall and no-one bothered to fix or sweep off the wood chips on the floor. the bed felt lumpy and uncomfortable tv didnt work and the bath room is the dirtiest, with black grim on the wall. i could hear my friends in the next room. and when i tried to use the elivator that didnt workk too (anymore) it worked when we came up but not going down had to use the stairs from the 7 floor. CLEARLEY THE WORST PLACE I HAVE STAYED IN MY LIFE!!!
