Best Western Bestwood Lodge Hotel, Nottingham, ENGLAND

First time in Nottingham and I must have found the best place to stay! The hotel was quiet, relaxing and out of the way but still close enough to town for access. Food was excellent, service excellent... more


Lost Potential,Moody Receptioist.

Arrived early Saturday evening to be met by the most unwelcoming of receptionists, a rather curt " No" followed our enquiry as to whether there was a television in the bar we could watch the rugby on,... more


Quite an impressive building.

I stayed here on Friday 18th September as I was visiting Nottingham for the Great Greyhound Gathering. I picked this hotel because it was advertised as ‘dog friendly’. My only real issue with this h... more

Owner Response
GeneralManager17, Manager at BEST WESTERN Bestwood Lodge Hotel, responded to this review
Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. I would like to thank you for choosing the Bestwood Lodge Hotel for your recent stay in Nottingham, however I am disappointed that your stay didn't fulfil your expectations. I would, however, like to inform you of our current refurbishment programme, which begins within the next week. Our refurbishment programme will update, whilst keeping the original character and features of the hotel, a number of bedrooms and public areas. As this is an old Victorian building, sometimes the hot water takes slightly longer than you would normally expect, however there is a notice in each bathroom informing of this. I apologise that you found this, however I am pleased to hear that our team assisted in getting hot water to you faster by running the nearby rooms taps. For the safety of our guests, doors are locked during the night, however a Night Port, as you point out, was at hand to open the doors upon request. Our Night staff have a mobile receiver which picks up the doorbell, alerting them of you being at the door, therefore although you didn't have access immediately, I am pleased you gained access via the correct procedure. I am pleased to hear that you enjoyed our buffet style breakfast the following morning, and enjoyed the stunning country park which surrounds the hotel. With reference to the speed bumps on the drive to the hotel, these were put in place by the council, therefore the hotel has no control over these. I would like to thank you again for choosing the Bestwood Lodge Hotel for your stay in Nottingham and we would be delighted to welcome you back again in the future. Your feedback is important to us and we have fed this information to the relevant departments.
