I’ll be completely honest after living in Nottingham for three years I had driven past this hotel every day on my way to University and had never really thought much of the hotel from the outside. It doesn’t look brilliant, and the pub next door just looks like a boozer but I was pleasantly surprised at this little gem and was really glad we booked this little hotel on the outskirts of Nottingham.
We were away for a girls reunion weekend so we booked a few rooms between us and decided on this hotel as it was a good location, had free parking and it was close to local amenities.
Away from the hustle and bustle of the city centre and with cheaper prices to match this excellent hotel is perfectly placed for all the sights of the city with good transport links in and around Nottingham. Follow the legend at Nottingham Castle and the Tales of Robin Hood and explore the great outdoors at Wollaton Hall and Deer Park and Rushcliffe Country Park. Or for sporting action, stroll over to Trent Bridge Cricket Ground.
We had booked a family room for four of us which was great and the room was huge with one king size bed and two smaller single beds. The room was a modest size (but plenty big enough for us) with modern, clean decoration. The king size bed was also incredible – it was huge! And it was also super comfy which was even nicer after a few glasses of wine in town! The smaller beds I am told were also sufficient and even with the king size bed and two singles there was still enough room within the bedroom and didn’t feel too cramped.
The bathroom was small (but, again, big enough) and everything was clean and well presented. I know it’s an odd thing to mention but the shower was brilliant – nice and powerful!
We expected a certain standard as we have previously stayed in a Premier Inn in Leeds and London and assumed it would be similar but I was quite impressed.
There was also a pub next door, nothing special but it served breakfast, lunch and dinner if you didn’t want to venture further afield for food. It is certainly more of a drinking pub than a family pub having lovely meals but for the one night we grabbed dinner there and then just walked next door to the hotel.
The ladies behind reception were also super helpful and friendly – especially after I kept walking in to the wrong door – great customer service!
You do get what you pay for, but when staying in a hotel like Premier Inn you know you’ll get good service and a good quality room.
Our room was £64 for one night on a Saturday.
All in all very satisfied with the hotel and service and I would stay again.
