We stayed at the Rutland Hotel a few months ago when visiting Nottingham for a gig so we literally only wanted somewhere near the venue (Rock City) to sleep afterwards. Location was therefore the prime reason we booked, and the reasonable price, and we were impressed. It is only a short walk to the main part of the city and a short walk further to Rock City.
There is an NCP car park next door and the rates were reasonable for an overnight stay. I even think the hotel discounted the price which was appreciated.
When we stayed the reception area had just been decorated and looked stunning; very trendy light shades, top end boutique fittings and it gave a very good first impression. The lifts had been given a make over too but this is where it ended as the rooms were still being renovated. When we ventured up to the top floors we could see just how much things were in need of a facelift too! Still the receptionist explained what had and what hadn't been finished and so we did not expect the room to be up to much and so were fine with the basic room we found. The bed was comfy however and there was noise so we were happy.
For what we paid for and what we wanted the room for we were very pleased and so my star rating of 4/5 is more out of the clear potential the hotel had. I imagine when it is fully done up this place will charge more money and look the part!
