Excellent stay, staff were very friendly. Communication with the hotel was great, as my plans kept changing they were very accommodating to my needs. Will be continuing to use in the future. Well cooked breakfast and great variety of food in the evening. Bar had a very nice atmosphere.

Good location, far enough out of town but only about 10 mins by taxi to Mansfield centre. Great customer service and friendly, hospitable staff. Contemporary. tasteful public areas. Good value for money .... £30 a night. Perfect when you have had a few beers and need somewhere to sleep it off. Fabulous breakfast!

Arrived to be told I wasn't booked in until the next day 16th. Booking revealed I was booked in for 15th. No vacant rooms. Was sent to another hotel across town. Not amused as both myself and a colleague were booked there. She did book the other hotel, admitted was their mistake but apology was not genuine. My colleague who...

The restaurant part of this seemed a bit expensive and lacking in choice so we did not eat there but a stay for four adults was good. The rooms were clean and comfortable (I think the beds are memory foam mattresses) and when I had a noise issue with my room it was changed immediately and help offered to move...

Visited 281 last night with our friends to celebrate Christmas - we have eaten at 281 many times in the past - we ate from the Christmas menu and the food was absolutely delicious. Service as always from the staff was excellent. Always a friendly place to visit and always enjoyable.
