To begin my review I would like to make clear to any potential visitors to the Grantham Hotel that it is certainly not a hotel. Think of it more as a guesthouse that was built in the early twentieth century, decorated in the early nineteen-seventies and has had very little else done to it since.
This may sound really terrible but it is not all bad. You really need to ask yourself what you want from your hotel stay. Personally, I was away on business for one night. I required parking and the cheapest hotel stay possible; the Grantham met both of those needs. I would not bring my girlfriend here.
During my stay I found the staff to be friendly and helpful, offering me sage information on Nottingham and how best to find my way around (I did not realise it was a city quite so large). After checking out in the morning, the staff were happy for me to leave my vehicle parked on-site for the duration of that day whilst I conducted my business, before collecting it late afternoon (as Nottingham is an expensive place to park, this proved very convenient).
I would not however, recommend the Grantham to anybody staying for more than a night and when I say a night; I mean a NIGHT, do not spend the evening in your room as the rooms are very small and as I previously mentioned, in need of SERIOUS refurbishment!
So there you have it really, if all you want is a cheap bed (breakfast is not even worth a look) with free parking, in very close proximity to the City Ground, Meadow Lane and Trent Bridge (and reasonably close proximity to Nottingham city centre) then the Grantham may well be worth a visit. If you want modern, clean room, a hearty breakfast or a romantic getaway with the missus, begin by looking at an Ibis budget and move upwards through the price range from there.
