Although I have stayed here once before, on my own, in a superior room, I never left the room. So when arranging a weekend away for friends in Nottingham it seemed a good choice! Oh dear! The corridors are tired and more like a care home, and the public areas are dated. Although the staff are fairly friendly on the bar and reception, the friendliness award has to go to the restaurant staff, Rose and a lovely young girl, both of which couldn't do enough for our party. We had a late meal in the restaurant on arrival and very reasonably priced, although the restaurant is shabby and too brightly lit! Breakfast looked good, although I had very little due to an upset stomach, not sure where from?
The most disconcerting event was on the Friday evening, in the bar, suddenly an influx of guests, I think they were guests, poured into the bar with polystyrene boxes of fast food, and began to munch in the bar. As if that wasn't enough, two guys had a Chinese delivered!!!! Does this happen in other hotels?? When I asked the bar man if that was appropriate , he commented that he didn't mind!! Oh well, I don't mind not staying here again then! Horrible!
Bedrooms were dated, but comfortable and cleanish! Holes in nets, stains on bed runner, hairs in bath and corners of bathroom. Great shower though!
I'm not usually this picky but was very disappointed and bringing friends, had expected more. Understand they are being bought out though, so may be a good thing. less
