Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Heathandhel Lovely decor and lovely reception area
Lovely room, we had 2 double beds between the 3 of us. The bathroom had a lovely big mirror also.
Loved the bedding and the beds were very comfortable.
We ordered breakfast with our room but there could have been more information on what the breakfast was especially as we weren't sure if our 15 year would get breakfast. Website said free breakfast for 2 adults but didn't mention child's.
But apart from that, the breakfast was nice and the hotel facilities very nice thank you.
Would be happy to recommend this hotel and wouldn't hesitate to stay in another holiday inn.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Lou73 Fantastic Hotel , Air con needs to be fixed
We stopped at the hotel on route to York. We had a very good welcome From Chris on reception who checked us in quickly , he also made my 9 year old son feel very welcome ( my son actually said "I feel very important mummy ), the hotel room was lovely and the beds were very comfortable. Breakfast was faultless as were the staff . My only moan would be that the air conditioning wasn't working and at night the room was extremely hot, luckily I had a fan in my car so I had to pop down and get it . Even though it just circulated the hot air around. We are considering staying at the hotel again next year so fingers crossed the air conditioning will be fixed then. Thank you again to Chris on reception for making us feel welcome and taking time out to chat to my son whenever he passed reception .

My last experience I do think was a glitch and was rectified quickly. This last stay was 'normal' and buy that as expected from HI, high standards achieved overall, Thanks, I will use again!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jds5 1st class service to resolve a problem
On checking in I commented that I hoped the wireless network had improved from my previous visit. I was offered a cable but explained this would be useless as I wished to use my iPad and my company issued laptop is secured so a cable was not the answer. I went to the room and no wireless signal present. . I returned to reception and was immediately allocated an alternative rom with full service. An excellent resolution but the wireless network should be improved to back up the foc Internet offer.

Reviewed above by 5 yr old daughter
The hotel was very good for money, clean, tidy and the staff were very helpful. The breakfast was excellent and they brewed Starbucks. A good base for Nottingham if you are visiting places in a car. The hotel is about 10/15min walk to town centre with kids, but drive able in 2-5mins.
Location pro - out of town means free parking
Location cons - 10/15 min walk to town centre

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by MarkS1971 The good and the bad
First and foremost the restaurant food was excellent quality and value, the staff were very friendly and helpful too.
Now for the bad points, the wifi in the bedroom was slow and unusable which was really disappointing considering you have to pay for it - needless to say I got a refund.
Also the bar was poorly stocked, the first time ever I've known a bar to run out of diet pepsi. I ended up going across the road to a supermarket to buy some.

On arrival was greatest by friendly staff. Room clean and tidy, bed comfy and bathroom excellent. Quiet at night time, lovely for my daughter. Breakfast in the morning was an issue, full English was greasy and scrambled eggs very buttery. Also was expensive :-(
Staff friendly and accommodating

Stayed here on Saturday for one night after a night out, booked a standard room when we checked in we were upgraded to an executive room very clean and quiet hotel. Great location plenty of restaurants close by and the retail park. Only a short taxi ride into nottingham city centre costing about £4 each way. Overall great value for money would deffinately stay again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by dils75 Great service
I was really impressed by the standard of service at the Holiday Inn. I was a guest at their maidenhead hotel a couple of years ago and didn´t think their level of service could be surpassed, but was pleasantly surprised at Holiday Inn Nottingham. The staff are extremely professional ang can´t do enough for you. Room are kept clean and beds are comfortable. Brilliant! The only thing that was disappointing was that Wifi is not free :(

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by jwa79 Stinky!
We had to move rooms as the toilet was absolutely stinking. The second room was slightly better but we felt we had inconvienced the receptionist enough by explaining the stench and asking to move. Really quite disgusting that a hotel so big can't sort out their sewage problems.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by bec6410 Great staff noisy dusty hotel!
What a shame that noise from other guests and a dusty room
really spoilt a great effort by very nice and helpful staff. our first night was okay despite the room being thick with dust I wrote please dust me on the tv stand. It remained like that for the duration. This is after we found receipts and hankies from the previous occupants in the draw! But worse than this was the noise from patio area and a very noisy family above. Stayed in Hi all over the world and this has to be worst breakfast have ever encountered how difficult is it to make scramble eggs? So lovely staff but terrible stay.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by CFG2 Good location but why no air-con?
Hotel is set in a good location with parking and easy access. we stayed on a warm day, mid summer. On check in the reception area was pleasantly cool, air conditioned and welcoming, as were the staff. However, when we reached the room we found the large air-con unit above the door was only blowing ambient temp air (approx 30C) around the room. The heat control worked if you needed to increase the temp! but no cool air was available. With the window open the full amount - 6 ins max - (to stop suicide attempts due to the unbearable heat?) the room did not cool down enough to get a reasonable night's sleep.

There is little point in IHG making a lot of noise about free Internet for its loyal customers if there is no wifi signal in the rooms. Suggest you upgrade the infrastructure before promoting

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by loiner Disappointing
Stayed two nights. Double room small close to lifts bed small compared to other holiday inns. Room shabby but clean needed refurbishment. No fridge or in room drinks .In room facilities poor. Breakfast fine was what we expected
Bath plug full of unidentified gunge so bath /shower took and age to empty
Poor value for price have paid almost half the rate at Holiday Inn Express for better room and in room facilities

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Breagh6 Very comfortable
We had a very comfortable stay at the holiday inn. We look forward to our next visit.
We had only booked our room and not breakfast which I had not realised. It would have been good if this was pointed when booking in, as when we received our bill at the end of our stay I was rather surprised. As I was only expecting to pay extra as we had our dog with us. We were also over charged for the dog staying over which I sorted out with the hotel after we arrived home. I was very pleased how pleasant and efficient this was.
I feel the points are a waste of time as we have stayed several times and do not seem to get any benefits from them.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by debs111148 overpriced, unhelpful staff
I have stayed in this hotel several times over the last four years whilst visiting my sons.
I made a phone booking for a suite, a room which I have previously stayed in with my Husband and found to be very satisfactory.
Several weeks later I made another booking for a regular double room, for my son.
The room my husband and I stayed in was certainly not a suite, it had a very old and extremely uncomfortable 4ft 6" bed, and incredibly noisy air conditioning. Needless to say due to the bed and the air conditioning we did not get any sleep.
The next morning we spoke to staff at the reception desk about our room, simply to be told that that was the room I had booked, so basically put up with it.
As I mentioned earlier I have stayed in this hotel before, and on this occasion I was paying considerably more than I had paid on previously, I thought because I had booked a suite, but apparently not!
We decided not stay in the hotel for a second night, checked out and went to stay elsewhere in the City Centre.
On our return home I decided to ring customer care, I was simply told that I had not booked a suite, just a regular double room (I dont consider the room we had should even be sold as a regular double room, especially for the price I paid.) I was also told that it was all confirmed to me in an email which I should have checked.
I had only received one email confirming my booking, and this was for the second room I had book for my son. it gives no detail of the cost or room type booked.
I am more disappointed with the lack of care I was shown by Holiday Inn staff, both at the hotel and the customer care centre, than I ever was with the hotel room.
As I said at the beginning of this review, I have stayed at this particular Holiday Inn several times, and also at others in various cities, but I won't now be returning.
All in all very disappointing, but there are plenty of other hotels that i can give my money to.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ChrisL77 Another night at Nottingham
Although not a frequent visitor I have have stayed at the Holiday at Nottingham (Castle Marina) many times over the last 10 years or so. The location is convenient for the city and the University. The food is good but if you want to eat elsewhere there is plenty of choice within walking distance.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by UnHappyBunny1 Mixed!!
Great choice of pillows and usual expected facilities....until the morning! No shower gel/shampoo, my own fault for not packing any extra...then the hairdryer did not work...not impressed. Complained at reception on my way to breakfast, thinking it will be sorted by the time I have had my breakfast, which by the way was as expected - fair.
To my horror nobody had sorted any of the issues out even though the cleaning staff where working on my floor, not a happy bunny!!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Tomo21 A mixed experience.....
Stayed for one night in Nottingham on business.
The Good: Location, Parking, Nearby shops/supermarket, restaurants, petrol station.
The Bad: The room was uncomfortably warm with an ineffectual a/c unit. As it wasn't possible to open the window very far, there wasn't much chance to ventilate the room - not what you expect from this hotel given the rate.
When I mentioned this to the receptionist at check out, I was told that they have fans but you have to call reception and ask for one as they couldn't supply one for every room! I mentioned that the previous night I stayed in a hotel where they had put a fan in every guest room - fans are not an expensive item so I struggled to understand why the hotel provided such an answer - and also how many guests would know the hotel had fans available.
This was a disappointing exchange as I'm used to better service from IHG. Having said that, the staff members for check in and breakfast were a delight. Overall, I'm not sure that I would stay here again if I had the choice.
