Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by David196 Not up to Crowne Plaza standards
The hotel is situated in a slightly unsavoury side street.
Reception staff were very friendly and helpful.
The bedroom was almost identical in design, layout and furniture to a Holiday Inn I stayed in last December.
It was breakfast that let the hotel down. The few staff on duty were completely overwhelmed , resulting in queues for tables. The food was bland and not too hot, although the plates were very hot.
Escaping the car park proved a problem, as tickets were greeted with an "Expired" message and the barrier would not rise. The problem was compounded by no-one answering the Help intercom to the hotel and no-one in the attendant's booth.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Murg One night in Nottingham
While travelling around the UK, we had one night in Nottingham. While not overly impressed with the city itself, the Crowne Plaza was a little oasis of calm. We particularly enjoyed the Executive floor with complementary drinks and breakfast. Staff were very friendly and obliging. One of our best hotel experiences in the UK

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by BSMy Four night stay.
Small room. Pillow problems and non working TV remote dealt with
promptly. Very unusual with other hotels we have stayed in as problems are never sorted.
Excellent breakfasts and all staff efficient, polite and courteous.
Have stayed here many times and have never been disappointed.
Excellent location with car parking alongside.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Mdf24uk Weekend In Nottingham
Got a great 2 nights for 1 offer so it worked out quite a good deal.
Arrived friday and was not offered the chance to book breakfast Saturday or Sunday. When I got to reception Saturday morning to sort breakfast for sat & sun, I was told that it was £10 each for Sunday but if I wanted to pay for the Saturday breakfast, it was only available to pay at the Restaurant at £15 each even though I could book Sunday at £10 each
Refused on principle !
Room was adequate apart for what appeared to be a hen party in the next room that were still partying until 3am.

Paid in advance and had a very good rate. Enjoyed meal for 2 deal in restaurant. Helpful staff found us a table out of the draught.
Very good facilities in the room, including bottled water. Ideal location for theatre.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Roy27 Not quite the booked experience
Stayed 4th April. Booked for the Club Room and floor paying in advance. On arrival, incredibly, no room at the Inn !!
They had overbooked the rooms. Not very impressive but the Receptionist did their best. Room on floor 3, still access to club lounge BUT not the best way in all honestly, this just should not happen. Only experienced this in Nottingham. The Continental Breakfast in the club lounge was sub standard on this occasion, not fresh delivery, for this reason cannot recommend this time round. Very disappointing.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by wayne68 Great room
We stayed here a couple of weekends ago in a king size suite on the 8th floor. There was a private bar on this floor, abit small but the drinks where free between 6 and 10pm!!
The room was great, nice and big, spottlessly clean.
We,ve been before last year but in a standard room and enjoyed the stay then.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Crocus Good location for the theatre and city attractions
We've been this hotel at least three times now. It works really well for us being so close to the Theatre Royal and the city centre. Clean and well run as far as we have seen.

Upgraded to a club room. Really nice for a special occasion. Only problem was noise from children in the room next door and using the club room which spoilt the relaxed atmosphere. Breakfast was lovely

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by businesstraveller78 Tired property, didn't feel like I got value for money
Room was very tired, especially the tiny bathroom. Toilet was squeezed in behind the door which was very awkward to use. Rooms are small. Plus points are that it was clean and bed was comfy, but I'm guessing that the Express by HI down the road would have been better value for money.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by HotelStayer4321 Rooms Very Noisy
On arriving at the hotel I was told there was no booking for me only then to be told that I had already checked in at lunchtime.
Parties in rooms till early hours.
Night club at rear of hotel which is open late every night and very noisy.
Room not made up on one day and still not remedied 4 hours after being complained about.
Would not recommend this room as it is far too expensive for the quality of stay.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by christmas such a great place to stay
I spent 2 nights here with an old friend from lincolnshire. The hotel was wonderful, really friendly staff and just what we needed for a weekend to catch up over the years. The hotel is really central to Nottinghamcity and the atmosphere was just magic. I would recommend this hotel for that special weekend or just to chill in a really nice place.

We stayed at the hotel last week, we found the staff very welcoming and the room was lovely, we have also stayed at the reading plaza and will be returning there in April ,
However we were disappointed in the car park charges, I think that guests should get a discount as at £12 a night was very expensive

The gentleman on the front desk could not have been more pleasant or helpful. I felt he found a connection with us and remembered us which was a really nice personal touch. The room was comfortable, clean and really made us feel relaxed. The hotel was amazing and I would defiantly stay here again

Enjoyed our stay, only a slight hitch with the lighting which fused! but was resolved in minutes
Bathroom was a bit dated but otherwise lovely room
Lovely views from Executive room and very comfortable bed, nice little touch with the lavender sleeping aids
Executive lounge wasnt manned by any staff and didnt have any 'nibbles' as described and tables were not cleared
Overall a nice stay

The room was fine but the bedding was totally inadequate. This has been replaced since my last stay and the duvets are now very skimpy. I recommend you take a blanket!

On arrival we was not at any time given the details regarding the fact we had not paid for a full breakfast as we was on the 8th floor for club only.
This was embarrising when we went down for breakfast the first morning.
The waitress took our details on how unhappy we were but nothing was done.

Stayed here on a friday night. Quick check in, very polite and helpful receptionist. Room had everything in you could need, clean, however had a slightly musty smell. No noise during our stay which was great considering the location of a city center. Didnt sample the resturant as we arrived late and left early.Car park next to the hotel and the £12 for the 24hours in line with other places I have stayed.
Would stay here again

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Nogadrol Sunday Stay
We stayed at this hotel (as we have a number of times before) when attending a show at the Royal Centre. On this occasion, the hotel was quiet (ie: minimal number of guests). As ever, the hotel was clean, comfortable, and staff were friendly and helpful. For the first time - apparently because it was a Sunday night stay and therefore fewere guests, the paid-for hot buffet breakfast was not available. That said, a cook-to-order hot breakfast was available and as always the quality was good. WE like this hotel, it is well-located for our needs and always our first choice.

Stayed in an executive room for my wife's birthday, room was great,we used the club room for a drink several times during our stay- nice touch. Reception lady was very helpfull and pleasant.Nice ambience about the hotel.The hotel is perfectly placed for the attractions being two minutes from the bars and 5 minutes from the main shopping area. My only gripe is the breakfast plates are small which I am told is being addressed, and no I am not a greedy person!. We will be returning for definite in the near future.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Lincsmark Couldn't ask for anymore
Upon arrival at the hotel I was amazed by its stunning lobby and how well the staff presented themselves, along with the very pleasant welcome I received.
Check in was really easy and smiles all round. The front desk staff were helpful and informative. In addition, very knowledgeable.
My room spacious and kept to a high standards in both presentation and maintenance. Furniture was stylish and comfortable, good selection of channels on the television. Plus complimentary tea's with biscuits and bottled water.
Only thing I could find wrong with my room was the condensation that had ran down the windows and gathered on the windows ledge beneath.
My breakfast in the club lounge was excellent. I couldn't say anything else, but it was very much for 'executive room' residents/

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Magb80 Distinctly average Crowne Plaza
Fairly easy to find the hotel and it has a good size car park. For some reason there's no lighting in the car park, so be careful if arriving at night.
Quick check in, with no recognition of Ambassador status.
Lobby/ communal areas of hotel are very nice and modern. Breakfast was quick and efficient and plentiful - staff member was very nice and helpful.
Main problem is the rooms and bathrooms, which are very tired and dated. I booked a Superior room, which so far as i could see had no extras from a standard room except a bottle of water.
Everything about the hotel makes it feel very much like a Holiday Inn, not a Crowne Plaza.
It's important to receive the little extras that Ambassadors should get, when you're in hotels 4 days a week, it's what makes you go back to a certain hotel. Unfortunatley i won't be returning to this one.
