“First class Hotel and staff.”
Reviewed 13 July 2014

Attended my son,s wedding reception at the Hotel and also stayed overnight. I must say the attention to detail for the wedding reception was outstanding and no issue was a problem. My granddaughter who had travelled from Melbourne Australia with the family for the wedding, was not happy with her meal and a suitable replacement was presented very quickly with no fuss and produced a smiley face!
The Hotel decor was very new and a modern design. The room we stayed in was very clean and comfortable. The breakfast choice was very extensive and the staff were excellent, particularly the receptionist whom I believe originated from Grasse, France.
Well done St James Hotel, I would have no hesitation in recommending any visitor to Nottingham to try it and enjoy the experience for themselves.

Room Tip: Rooms to the rear of the Hotel would probably be quieter!

Had two night stay at St. James Hotel. Check in was very efficient & staff very polite. Dropped luggage to our rooms. Bedrooms were very clean & comfortable. We went to bar for food. Service was very slow & there was a lot of confusion as to whether the kitchen was open for food or not.
Breakfast was ok. Grill Food was cold & very greasy. Good variety of cereals & pastries.
Hotel decor is very modern, up to date & different to the typical hotel look.
The hotel is in a great location with shops, restaurants, bus stops & services only few minutes walk away.

Dear Guest

Thank you for taking the time to write your comments and I am glad you had a comfortable stay with us.

Please accept my apology if you found the cooked breakfast offering to be greasy, the vast majority of comments relating to breakfast have been very positive over the past few months. I will certainly pass on your comments to our Chef.

Kind regards

We had the St James as our wedding venue after being massively let down by our original one. Pat and Gary couldn't do enough for us to make our day very special. The rooms are lovely and service and food was spot on. Gary stayed til the last person went to bed just as he said he would....I think it was 2.30 am - and yes that was us!

I would highly recommend the St James in Nottingham. And we will most definitely be back.

Pat and Gary, you did the hotel, yourselves and us very proud.

Simple over night stay turned out to be an excellent choice.
Staff were friendly, very helpful and really professional.
Bar & breakfast area pleasant and clean.
Single rooms were just what I would expect, bathroom and bed linen were spotlessly clean.
Excellent vaue!

Stayed two nights in standard double room. Good hotel for price with breakfast. Staff all very pleasant and helpful. Foyer and bar very good decor. Room had been refurbished but have to agree with other review positioning of toilet an issue as was the toilet seat in room 416. A definite squash whilst sitting on the toilet. Shower very powerful. No view from bedroom at all, just backs of buildings but didn't come for picturesque view. All is ok with hotel if you literally need somewhere to crash for the night as we did. Not luxury for relaxing in room but it served our purpose. Great location though for seeing Nottingham.

Checked in with no hassle whatsoever, lovely woman on reception on Friday afternoon...I'm in room 216, it is small, but as a budget hotel it's perfectly fine, I'm travelling alone, but for two, I can imagine in being slightly cramped....the bathroom is ok, although the bath tub itself is small, at least for me at 6ft 2, however there is a shower...The water comes out with such force it only takes a minute or so before the tub is full....
The lift to the rooms is very dark indeed, with only tiny fairy lights in the ceiling, not sure why it's so dark in there....
However, the breakfast is magnificent, always for me, if a hotel provides fresh mushrooms instead of canned, they win me over...truly a feast to fill the emptiest stomach....fresh juice, excellent selection of cereal, and fresh coffee....
The hotel is well situated in a quite part of town, almost next to the castle....
All in all, an excellent place to stay if you're on a budget, I'll be staying here in future.....
