“Great Hotel”
Reviewed 9 November 2012

Stayed here 1 night on business. Room very spacious and clean. Yes a bit dated but for the price great. The bar and restaurant area are very good. I had a very quiet room and a comfy bed. The guy on reception who checked me in was lovely, really polite and wecoming ( 6.00pm 7/11/12, manager please note if you read this so you can thank him). Only slight complaint would be the evening meal in the restaurant, service very slow, not the waiters but the chef I think. My food was lovely, just not enough of it. £15.90 for the lamb, really nice but left feeling a little hungry. Breakfast was good, I booked it as part of the room. all in all very happy with my stay

We booked two adjoining rooms, for two nights, (my parents in one and me + teenage son in the other) for the sole purpose of having somewhere to bed down whilst visiting my other son at University. Having found a deal online which worked out at only £15 pppn, we had no particular expectations. We arrived before check-in time but this wasn't a problem as we were shown immediately to our rooms by the friendly reception staff.
The rooms were 'of an era', decor-wise, however they were spacious, airy and quiet with a comfortable king-size bed as well as a double sofa-bed which was already made up for my son to use.
We had booked the room-only option but upon enquiring at the desk, we were told if breakfast was pre-booked, it was only half the price and free for children under 16, so this was ideal. The food and service was outstanding despite a problem having occurred in the kitchen on one of the mornings. In fact, the staff here were some of the friendliest I've encountered in the UK.
I will have no hesitation in returning to this hotel.

This is a plastic hotel. If you just need somewhere to put your head down when travelling then go here. The service is good, the food is over-priced but nice and it provides exactly what you would expect. The value is excellent, Book online in advance.

We live fairly local to this hotel and as our house was out of use for the day we needed overnight accommodation. We chose Novotel as it was the cheapest at £45 per night. To be fair the hotel is somewhat dated and the decor of the separate toilet and shower was akin to whitewashed pebble dash. However, the room was comfortable and the staff friendly.

We found the cooked breakfast somewhat expensive at £17 per person, my advice would be to drive less than a mile into Sandiacre or Stapleford where there are several cafeteria, including Wetherspoons where you can get the same for less than £4. All in all it was ok for the money, it's conveniently located next to the M1, so probably fine for a one nighter

Dear Ray S,

Thank you for taking the time to write a review about your recent visit to at Novotel Nottingham East Midlands Hotel. I’m pleased you were satisfied with your stay. I have noted your comments about breakfast costs. If you shoud be staying with us again, it is always cheaper if you book a bed and breakfast rate or please do ask on arrival if there are any offers on breakfast for the days you are staying.

Stayed for two nights 26th and 27th October 2012.
Easy to find, just off the M1 junction. Short drive to the park and ride for Nottingham which cost three pounds return to the centre. Love Nottingham and love the park and ride. Hotel staff were perfect in every department. The breakfast was buffet style and was excellent and the staff loking after us made it a very pleasant experience. The restaurant was superb and the food excellent. Walked five minutes down the road second night to "The Grill". This was an excellent place to eat in superb surroundings and very good and well presented food. The room was very good, warm and of adequate size, good TV with sofa and the bed was comfortable. What else do you need.

First Impressions were from the outside of the building is that the hotel is pretty tired. Upon entry this was confirmed. Shabby Carpets and Bad Artex on EVERY wall confirmed this.

We arrived fairly late, and this was no problem. However the rooms are basic, and lacking modern features (That even Premier Inn's have) e.g. Ability to plug laptop into TV's / Reasonable furniture and beds etc.

The Bathroom was very basic. Ceiling was very low, & the suite itself was very tired and worn, very disappointing.

Room was boiling hot (With little option to control other than open the window and listen to the noisey M1).

Don't think I'd stay here again if I was honest unless a major refurbishment was to happen.

We stayed for just the one night, Friday as the room rate is very cheap.
As ever let's get the bad out of the way first. The location is an issue there are no great places to eat within 2-3 mies but if you don't mind going further a field there are plenty around.

Check in swift and painless.


The room although it is dated by many room standards its not that bad. I will give them bonus points as it was clean top to bottom. My only major grip is about plug sockets one will not cut it any more with the amount of tech I carry it was charging nightmare and on my packing list is not a 4 socket extension lead.

Being down stairs to the main hotel actually helps as it is very quiet down there so if your a light sleeper might be worth asking about.

Conclusion if you passing and need a overnight stay on Fridays go for it as for paying the full rate maybe not.
