Premier Inn Nottingham Arena (London Road) Hotel
Ranked #8 of 48 Hotels in Nottingham
Reviewed 15 April 2013

As well as being just 5 minutes walk from the Arena the hotel is also close to the station and not too far from the shopping centre. Nothing to complain about the rooms which were comfortably heated, the bed which was large and very comfortable, the double glazing which was extremely effective. The restaurant food was OK for this kind of hotel, the breakfast being better than average. Just a few points worth a mention. A number of rooms were not ready by 2pm including ours due we were told by the late departure of previous guests. After a long drive [4 hours in our case] it would have been nice to go straight to our room since we arrived about 2.15pm, but instead we had to wait in the bar with other guests who were also waiting for their rooms. After waiting about half an hour it became apparent that guests arriving were now being given keys to go up to their rooms but we and others were still waiting. This caused one of the parties waiting with us in the bar to "blow his top" at the receptionist and they eventually realised that they should have reallocated rooms earmarked for guests not yet arrived to those waiting in the bar but unfortunately it took an ugly scene for them to act. Secondly, we had a text to our mobile phone inviting us to reserve a table for dinner which we did for 5pm [early because we were there to see the Meatloaf concert that evening]. On checking in the receptionist asked us if we had reserved a table, we confirmed this as did she when checking her records but on arriving at the restaurant at 5pm they had no record of our reservation and considered ourselves lucky that due to the early time there was still a free table [most of the guests seemed to be there for the concert in fact]. Had there not been a free table there would have been another ugly scene! The food was OK but not exceptional and after the main course we were asked if we wanted puddings. We were left with the menu for 10 minutes to decide and my wife chose the cheese platter only to be told that "we don't do that no more". It would have been nice to have been told that cheese was no longer on the menu before we were left to peruse it for 10 minutes. Finally, Wi-Fi is only free for 30 minutes but my connection only gave me half this time. We wouldn't normally complain about this [our kids would] but the concert was cancelled at short notice so we found ourselves back in our hotel room with nothing to do except contemplate the long drive home the next day and the wasted cost of the getting and staying in Nottingham on a windy Sunday night for a concert we would now never see. Also the room TV was quite small which we would not normally worry about. Of course, had the concert gone ahead I would never have commented about the Wi-Fi or the TV because this is a comfortable hotel ideally situated for the Arena. Oh, and the staff were very pleasant both in the restaurant and reception.

We stayed here for overnight accomodation and were attending a gig at The Nottingham Capital FM Arena.
The hotel sits on a busy roundabout, about a 10 minute walk from The Arena. So very convenient for access. The city centre is a little further away, maybe a 15 to 20 minute walk.
Upon checking in, the two young assistants were very helpful and efficient. We soon had our key card and were in our room, No 207 on the second floor. The car park is £3 per night which you pay at the reception when booking in. Our room overlooked the rear of the hotel where a canal passes very close and there are other commercial buildings close by.
The room was clean and the bed comfortable. The bathroom was again clean although it would seem some maintenance is due soon. A couple of the wooden panels below the bath and the wash basin were water damaged and a few tiles had old fixing holes in them which had been filled with grout. These were however minor issues and so in no way affected the use of the bathroom. The water pressure was high and the hot water plentyful.
The room was very generous in size as was the bed. A super king size. There was a sofa and an arm chair and a large desk with two power points and a hair dryer plus ample storage for clothing and luggage.
There are proably 20 or so steps down to get into the reception area and the disabled access is through a different door around the front of the hotel. The disabled access lets you into the first floor where you can get a lift to the ground floor and access reception. So if you need this facility this is something you may want to consider. I would say it looked inconvenient.
Overall though a great hotel where we had a restful night.

Room Tip: I would ask for a rear room, away from the busy dual carriageway out front.

This hotel has it's own parking, which is a real bonus in this part of the city. The hotel is dated, but that is mostly due to the architect and not the owners who keep it in good order.
As Premier Inns promise, the beds are superbly comfy. The rooms were of generous proportions, but they lacked power supplies where needed. Again, I put this down to the architect as technology has moved on and we need more power these days!
The staff were friendly and attentive.
Location was perfect for the Arena but driving about is a nightmare due to the roadworks and one way systems. But then, being situated where it is, a stroll will take you to the centre of pretty much everything ion a matter of minutes.

Stayed here for 2nights from 5th Apr to 7th Apr. My stay was fantastic the room was large and more than adequate for our needs the bathroom was spacious and clean.

The staff were exceptional - Reception staff always happy to help, stayed here due to having eye surgery at a clinic in the area. Breakfast and dinner staff were very polite and efficient. Hotel located within easy walking distance to the centre of Notts, modern hotel with a large car park for guests. Restaurant has a view of canal which is a nice touch - hot breakfast cooked fresh to order, dinner menu had varied choice. The best Premier Inn I have stayed in.

Got to premier early, they let us straight into room, and parked car, Lovely room. Very close to the arena, and shops. Very good breakfast, nice relaxed buffet. Ideal for going to the Arena for the show 5 mins away.

This hotel is perfect for people like ourselves who wanted to stay over in Nottingham after seeing a show at the arena. It is a 5 minute walk to the arena and parking is £3 which is much cheaper than town centre paking. We booked online and got our double room for £35 on a Friday night. The all you can eat Breakfast was delicious and we loved looking at the ducks on the water while we ate. Very friendly staff and it is a clean and modern hotel. Only downside for me was that the matress was quite firm so I woke up with back ache but I suffer with lower back pain on any firm matress
