“A comfortable base in Nottingham city centre”
Reviewed 12 April 2014

The Ramada Hotel in Nottingham City Centre is very well located for the Theatre Royal and Royal Concert Hall, being only a couple of minutes' walk away. Although the hotel overlooks Upper Parliament Street, it has an unimpressive entrance on a back-street. The reception area is small and uninspiring but I found the receptionists to be polite and helpful. There are two lifts to the six floors and they were remarkably quick, with little waiting around required.

On walking into the bedroom, my first impression was spacious with a very wide bed. I found the furnishings and decor to be quite cheerful and of decent quality, although a few pictures wouldn't go amiss. A good-sized TV was provided as well as tea/coffee facilities with biscuits. The mattress was a little hard for my liking and the heating/air-conditioning made a noise but fortunately could be switched off at night. The bathroom was also roomy and reasonably well presented. The usual liquid soap was provided on the walls but this was good-quality Dove soap which was very effective. Overall, I was impressed with the room and felt very comfortable in it.

I took dinner in the hotel restaurant (but not breakfast). The conservatory restaurant was a large pleasant space but the tables and chairs gave it the air of a works' canteen. The menu is reasonable but not extensive. There were only three people eating at the time, but this did not seem to speed up the proceedings. The pizza that I ordered was substantial and good-value, but burnt on the bottom. The cheesecake was also nice but was served with "cream" that had the consistency of milk. So not a bad meal overall, and the waiting staff were friendly and efficient.

For £50 (room only), I thought this hotel represented excellent value and the room would make a pleasant base for even an extended stay in Nottingham.

Stayed March 2014, travelled solo

A pretty basic hotel - more akin to an Ibis or similar
The positive is the free wifi
The (double) room is a reasonable size, and for a one night business stay, the wardrobe space sufficient (no problem with hot water
The shower was good
Room complementary tea and coffee (nescafe and tetley)
Very basic continental breakfast (with rock hard fresh fruit) in a dining room that felt like a motorway service station makes me wonder why I bothered doing B&B and didn't opt for room only and find a nice coffee shop for a fruit salad and decent pastries
No complimentary paper - and the one I ordered was not delivered to the room
So I know which Nottingham hotel I will return to - and it is not this one

Room Tip: low numbers appear to be nearest the lift lobby and door

Had a great three day stay at the Ramada. Close to the city Centre. Additional parking available. cost us £19.00 for three days parking which is pretty reasonable. Breakfast was excellent, full range of cooked foods, cereals, breads etc. Staff always friendly and helpful. Only small problem was that I wanted a beer when we arrived @ 1AM after a horrendous trip getting there and they had no residents bar open at that time. Night Porter got us a couple of beers though, so appreciated the customer service. Clean, friendly and a great location.

Room Tip: we had 301 which was a large corner room, roughly double the size of other rooms in the hotel

staying here for work reason's, not a bad hotel, rooms are clean, staff are gr8, just round the corner from the town center, well worth staying there if you are going to Nottingham, only thing i would say is the bar menu is a bit limited, but still very nice, but hay there are loads of other place's to eat. i would stay here again as it ticks all the box's.

Room Tip: if you drive pre-book a parking space as on road is not cheap, but free after 8pm
