Stayed in the hotel for 2 nights, 1st we had to get our room cleaned again as the shower was "crusty" and had someone else's hair in it. The rooms are dated and in need of decoration as the paint was peeling off I the bathroom. Food in the hotel was nice but 3 times cooked chips could not have... More

Stayed one night for family event nearby. Room was bright & clean with all the usual facilities. Beds (yes plural-sorry Mrs D last room available) comfy. We decided to eat evening meal here for ease.

Attended here for some pre meal drinks, the location is ideal straight off the main Nottingham Road in Mansfield - the atmosphere is also nice not hustle and bustle and nice to have a quiet drink. Would return and maybe try the food menu next time.

We met here for an old school reunion and enjoyed a lovely meal from a set menu at good value prices and excellent service. the bar area has changed since we were last there but it is very welcoming as are the staff. The rooms were enjoyed by those who stayed the night. Recommended

We've stayed here several times and always get a warm, friendly greeting. Good clean rooms recently refurbished. Nothing is too much trouble. Fantastic breakfast. Happy staff. What more is there to say. Will definitely visit again and again.

Stayed July 2016. Venue ideal for a small wedding reception. Our room was located at the front of the property and although it was above the bar area, we could not hear any noise.

I wasn't expecting much from my one-might stay for work down from London, and yes, my room is fairly basic (for £65, it's still a bargain). But the food is so good! I just had the devilled chicken livers and lamb tagine, and both were really delicious. Top quality, and the staff are lovely too. Professional and friendly. Yum.

Stay here quite regularly and overall I am very happy with the hotels position and an exceptionally good breakfast. However, I sometimes find that the room allocation is a bit of a lottery. Room above the kitchen extractor fan is to be avoided as are any rooms above a function in the dining room. Otherwise the 281 is one of... More
