I guess if you are running a conference centre in a university you would expect that the people doing it would understand a few basics about learning environments.
Book for 3 days and keep the same meeting rooms …... 2 days in 1 and then moved to a completely different part of the hotel
Not throw your meeting materials away when you are using the room the next day.
Seems they would rather run the hotel which is in a really poor location unless you are doing business in the University campus

Dear Guest,

Thank you for taking the time to post a review on the Orchard Hotel. Your comments refer to the adjacent EMCC and i can confirm that the organiser at the time of enquiry was fully aware that the meeting would be split between the EMCC and Hotel. i have not been made aware of any other issues on any of three days during your meeting.

I wish you all the very best and compliments of the season.

Incredibly happy with my stay. Everything was clean and spotless. Bed comfortable. Decent sized bedroom and shower room. Large television with plenty of channels. Good furntiure in room (desk, coat hooks, chairs). Foyer wonderfully light and modern. Good generous breakfast. Cannot fault the place!

walked in on an off chance of a room whilst visiting the local queens medical centre, very efficient friendly receptionist, fast check in with clear instruction, room spotless and well equipped, went down to the bar where the boys on the bar were friendly and efficient, drinks a little on the pricey side as expected, ordered snacks which were delivered quickly and was tasty! bed was comfortable and slept well, water in the bath was hot and the towels fluffy! nothing could be improved upon! breakfast was a self service affair with everything you could possibly want with the exception of real butter(personally i cant bear margarine/spread pretending to be butter) definitely recommend and would saty again if in the area

Hotel was good value all in all ,however the drinks at the bar are a bit expensive. With this hotel being on the University Campus there's not much around unless you travel.
The beds are a bit hard , but thats just my personal opinion. The room in general was very nice and spacious, with all the facilitys you would expect.

My friend and I travelled up from Southampton for a weekend, and I managed to book this hotel through Expedia for only £39.00 per room per night. It was excellent. Beautiful setting and surroundings. Check in was quick and easy and the receptionists very obliging. The room was spacious and immaculate and very very modern. A proper hairdryer and iron, kettle, tea/coffee making facilities, plus biscuits. The breakfast was delicious, with a lot of variety. The receptionists ordered us a taxi to take us into the City Centre, which was literally a 5/10 minute drive. Would definitely stay here again. The only downside, which is not a real complaint, was that you had to actually get in the bath to turn the bath taps on! All in all a fabulous find. Amazing!

The hotel is a new and modern hotel. It's a well presented hotel and very spacious. Check in was simple and quick. The bedroom was spacious, clean and nicely decorated. The hotel location is good and has plenty of parking. the restaurant and bar facilities are good too.
Breakfast was very good, lots of variety and tasted great.

For the price I paid (£39 for a standard double room) I expected a terrible travelodge style room, basically only a place for us to get some sleep. I was surprised to find it was a stylish modern hotel, with a nice big room, comfy and well designed.

Favourite points:
*Tree feature wall, very pretty, both my boyfriend and I want one in our house!
*Heavy curtains
*Large shower with nice smelling soap
*Good pillows, only needed one
*Nice layout of room
*Lots of plugs all over the room. So many hotels miss this!
*Free wi-fi
*5 mins walk and 20 mins bus from city center, buses are very regular, cost £3,40 for a return
*Free car parking

We didn't eat there, and didn't stay very long (literally turned up and went to sleep), but we enjoyed my stay, and will recommend it to my family when they visit Nottingham next year.
