This was a good hotel that did a lot of things right. The receptionists were helpful and quick - in fact all the staff were great. The rooms are not huge, but they are nicely decorated, clean, comfortable and quiet. The location is outstanding and it is what you pay for. The bar is nice for an early or late...

Booked an overnight stay with breakfast and was very impressed with everything - from the modern style of the decor to the quality of food and service. The suite we'd booked was a generous size and included all the expected trimmings, plus more, presented with thought for the customer - including an espresso coffee making facility, his and hers bath...

Very nice hotel, parking is right next door which is perfect, decorated beautifully inside too! Stayed with another couple, and when visiting their room noticed it was double the size of ours, and when asked, we were told one room was the old standard double, and one was the new. The rooms were nice, bathrooms were great, but I am...

I stayed at the St James hotel for 2 nights & found this pretty average & basic. Convenient for access to the city which was a positive but the rest was bluntly nothing special. My room was small, tv remote did not work and I found it rather noisy from adjoining rooms and the corridor. I think I'll try avoid...

Just few minutes walk from the train station and literally round the corner from Nottingham Castle, St James was really perfectly placed. Being in a quiet street made it the relaxing place to go for a weekend away. We stayed on the first floor: the room was comfy and big enough for the two of us. Very comfy mattress (I...

We booked this boutique hotel as a treat. Check in was smooth and welcoming. We booked the four poster suite and it was stunning. Lovely room and to top it all the bath was a jacuzzi. Not cheap but worth it for a treat

Booked for 2 nights New Years 2016. Price was £166.05 + £22 for parking. Stayed in Room 418. Bad Points: Constant buzzing sound in room from generator and paper thin walls, so sleepless night. Bathroom from the 80's with cracks and a strange smell. No hot water in the morning of the second night. Good Points: Friendly staff and good...

This is a lovely hotel with everything you would need; good sized rooms, friendly staff and an excellent food menu. I stayed for one night and had a very good plate of food in the bar area which had comfortable seating. My room was quiet and restful with all usual items. A lovely breakfast to finish my stay.
