Good. The location is great for most Nottingham sights, near the Castle. The public areas are well decorated, funky as you would expect from a boutique hotel. Bad. Well average.......... we booked two nights. The room was small. Sooo small we had to move the desk chair to get round the bed. Ugly. The bathroom............. this is not 4 star.... More

The bed was soft and resulted in us rolling into the middle of the bed. Pillow and we had good size bathroom, that needed a tiny bit of... More

Booked a few months earlier as a group of us we're going to Rock City for a Gig, the £99 for a double room was too good to resist. Lovely hotel, centrally located with friendly staff, and a 24hr bar ticked all the boxes. We weren't disappointed and it was a great stay for the one night. Would highly recommend... More

Reserved a room via booking.com for a very reasonable price for a Sunday night. The room and stay itself was quite comfortable.. Probably aided by the company I was in! Allocated room was quite small, located on the 6th floor so the one window located in the bedroom was quite small and porthole like. Decor and furnishings were interesting albeit... More
