I have used this hotel twice when I have been in the area. The first time when I was meeting friends for a ride (motorcycles) in the Peak district, and then again when visiting friends in Nottingham itself.
The hotel is a short drive from the city, but that wasn't an issue for me as I had my own transport each time. There is sufficient parking at the hotel, which was one of the attractions for me, and the staff were very accommodating with letting me park my bike somewhere safe.
The main attraction is that it really was genuinely the cheapest hotel I could find anywhere in the area. It was £30 a night, for a room which had a double bed AND an pull out sofa bed meaning I didn't have to share a bed with my male friend.
When I first arrived, I thought I had got what I paid for, but the exterior is VERY deceiving! Once I stepped inside, it was comparable to some of the mid-range hotels I have stayed in around London, on business. Very clean, very modern, and it had a good atmosphere.
The staff were very professional, helpful, and welcoming. They were accommodating too, I woke up late one morning and missed breakfast, however they were more than happy to make me a bacon and egg roll (which wasn't even on the menu).
The room was clean, even if it it wasn't the best equipped, it was comfortable.The bed was nice, it had a TV. I had access to an Iron, and everything I needed.
The hotel had a lounge which people seemed to use, and a restaurant. I believe it also has a swimming pool, but I didn't get a chance to try these out.
I would DEFINITELY recommend using this hotel, especially if you are on a budget.
