Reviewed 11 October 2016

I've stayed here twice for business travel, and it's disappointing. It's on the shabby side of chic - once chic, now shabby, with worn carpets and furniture. Minimalist (i.e., none!) toiletries, no in-room tea or coffee. The bar and restaurant downstairs is very inconsistent. The service is friendly but deeply undertrained for the price - management's fault, not theirs. The...

Dear Guest Many thanks for your comments. Please note that each room has tea and coffee facilities on the shelves behind the bed board. I can assure you that our hotel restaurant prices are in line with any other 4 star in the area as we have many external ( no resident) guests on a weekly basis. With kind regards...

Dear Guest I am sorry to learn about your breakfast experience. As we fill up most Saturdays ( with or without promotional rates ) we cannot control if all guests decide to have breakfast at the same time. We always staff according to the business demands but cannot expect guests to vacate a table within 20 min ( as they...

Hotel was very striking from the outside and even better inside. Rooms beautifully done out with everything you could require, especially the shower!! Which usually in some hotels can be abit pathetic this shower was fantastic. Our bed was comfortable and the room was very clean. Bar & grill was fully booked unfortunately so we had to venture out for...

We arrived after dark, firstly it is difficult to identify the entry when you get inside there is no reception sign just a very high counter that looked like it may be for a bar! We walked up to this counter and a young lady behind the bar, when I asked if this was reception, she said yes but I...

Lovely hotel, staff very accommodating- asked for taxis to be booked before our stay as needed a 7 seater- taxis booked no problem. Location is slightly out of the way. Only stayed 1 night and didn't eat or drink in the hotel so cannot comment. Only issue was the lifts, they were very slow and vert creaky.

Dear Guest Many thanks for your kind review. The lifts are not the fastest and the closing of the doors is slower in order to comply with DDA ( wheelchair users ) I do know that our lift service team came out last week to look at the scraping noise. We hope to see you again when visiting the area....

We stayed at the Dakota hotel for 2 nights when we were visiting family in nearby Hucknall. It was ideal location for us as it was only a short drive away. There seemed to be plenty of parking at the hotel even on a weekend. The rooms were modern and spacious and the bed was comfortable. The bathroom was clean...

We took some clients here for an evening meal and it was very disappointing. The service was dreadful; we waited 45 minutes for starters, the bottle of wine took 30 mins- it came immediately after we spoke to somebody! Two of our guests received the wrong main courses and to wait a further 20 minutes for the correct ones. We...

Stayed here for 1 night after a concert at Sherwood Pines. Weather was wet & cold but we walked into reception to a roaring fire! Very modern on the inside & out. Very clean & comfortable. Our room felt very luxurious & could have happily stayed here for a week! Would highly recommend.
