Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by UnoTipo Good location but some issues
Good location, nice room, comfy bed and excellent wifi. However, the heating / cooling system was poor to control with intrusive fan noise that cut in and out regularly waking me up. There was no hot water in the shower, reported this to a member of staff who seemed throughly disinterested and was not repaired during my stay. The choice at breakfast was less than expected and the quality (particuarly the cooked breakfast items) seemed poor. Finally I was informed that there was an NCP car park opposite, could not find this at all and ended up spending twenty minutes getting stuck in the one way system trying to find a nearby car park, better information needed.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Gus64 Smelly rooms disappointed
Our first room offered had strange and unpleasant odours both in the corridor and in the room itself. We complained and were moved to a different floor, slightly better, but still some strange (sewage like) smells in the room covered up by carpet freshner.
Not a great experience, we will not go back

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Ant71 Great Family stay
Good service, clean and central location. The staff were friendly and helpful. Nice breakfast was served. We would suggest that family rooms that accommodate 2 adults and 3 children be an added option (because we had more than 2 children, we had to book 2 rooms instead of 1 room). Good stay and would recommend.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by P30123 Disappointed
Me and my partner had booked this hotel for New Year's Eve and we were disappointed to say the least. When we got to our room we realised that the bed was not attached to the headboard which meant as soon as you sat on the bed it moved away. We went to reception to complain about this however the staff said there was nothing they could do about it and said there was only one room left in the hotel so we could view it. When we went to view it we saw that this room had the same problem with the bed. We chose to stay in the room we initially were given and we had to ask the staff for a door stop to put under the wheels of the bed to stop it moving. Only then did we manage to stop the bed moving and just about have a good nights sleep. The room was not up to standard, there were lots of stains on the carpet and the corridors too were not tidy. In addition, irons are not provided in the rooms and when we went to ask for an iron at reception they said all the irons had been taken and they didn't know when they would get them back. Overall I think this hotel was not worth what we paid, especially as there were cheaper alternatives that probably would been worth the money. I would not stay at this hotel again.

Not enough bedding to keep you warm in December, heating did not seem to work. No spare blankets, duvet paper thin. Worst nights sleep I have ever had! Kept waking up cold.
Room spacious and clean, bathroom clean. Breakfast average

To be honest I was dreading staying here as the reviews were quite mixed. HOWEVER, my stay was very pleasant. Room was fab as was the breakfast. Staff friendly too. Signed up to receive the hotel reward points system as I will definitely stay again.

I stayed there for a business in Nottingham. Location was perfect, hotel is in middle of town, walking distance to everywhere.
Receptionist lady Egle was very helpful, had room access issue at first, but she helped to sort it real quick.
Comp free breakfast before work is always a plus. Value for money, would stay again for sure.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Wilko72 Great location and value
Highly recommend this holiday inn express, it's right in the heart of nottingham, 5 mins walk from bus station. We stayed here to go to a concert at capital fm arena and was a 10 minute easy walk to the arena. On returning at 11pm the outer door was locked and had no idea how to get in, but then saw a buzzer but reception didn't answer when buzzed but luckily another guest let us in. Breakfast is included and is basic but fairly decent although a little chaotic, large plates and glasses had run out and were not quickly replaced. We were in a smoking room but no ashtray supplied and windows don't open for ventilation, which I found odd. Overall though good value for money and would recommend.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by ClaireJen Misleading deal
Paid extra for a breakfast and parking deal. Hot breakfast choice was very poor with only 3 items to choose from, cheap sausages, beans and soggy scrambled egg. Also only got discounted parking when the deal was worded in a way that suggested it would be free. Have queried this with customer services but still waiting on a response. Room was ok, but only one lift working which caused delays.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by JimmyC Got turned away
So turned up late on a Friday Evening hungry and tired.
Went to check in and was told that I was not staying at the hotel. Got told I was probably at the holiday Inn across town as the front Desk could not find my booking.
My booking was printed out along with the the other IHG Rewards Club Members Bookings.
So by the time I circled Nottingham looking for my room the local restaurants were closed .
Room was a standard Holiday Inn Express Room.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Scottmc1902 Room smelt of smoke and the corridor of dampness and urine
This was a one nite my partner and I were at work function and wished to stay over nite .the room smelt of smoke, even though we never asked for a smoking room,however the corridors are disgusting the carpets stained smell of urine which also filters into the room.if we had the time we would have complained however,timescales of that nite and following morning made it difficult and to be perfectly honest we just wanted to leave, and get some fresh air we did not even consider breakfast just wished to leave a very poor experience.from a brand of hotel where I have been many a time,

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Nov13UK Good location and nice room
Perfect location. From the hotel you reach every place in town just walking. The hotel is modern and spacious, rooms are comfortable, bathrooms are good size. One negative point is the sofa used as a third bed in room. Absolutely uncomfortable. You have to sleep with the head on a wooden step.
Breakfast could do with hot porridge.

Due to some terriable traffic on the way up we didn't get in till gone midnight, but the 24 hours front desk meant we could grab the key and turn in for the night. Comfy beds, nice showers and a good stay.

Stayed three nights on business and found the hotel to meet my needs. Breakfast and room and bed were good. The shower didn't work on the first day, but a new shower head was fitted that day. Staff I found to be very good apart from one receptionist. I would definitely stay again as hotel is so central. Only problem was it cost me a fortune for parking but its the same all over Nottingham.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by abunni It suited me well!
I only have 2 negative comments about my 3 night stay...... I found my room rather too warm for me, and after leaving a note to housekeeping to see if they could reset the cool/heat system to it's lowest control found that they had kindly put a fan in my room, that did help the situation. I had a quiet room at the back of the hotel so that suited me fine.
I didn't have a car to park fortunately, and as this hotel is situated on a roundabout in the inner circle of the city of Nottingham and I had to wonder where one parked the car..... the staff, particularly the reception young ladies, were very friendly and helpful.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Djna Not quite
A variety of small issues that lead me to down-mark this stay.
Location is very convenient and on an individual basis all the staff were very helpful and pleasant. Room was quiet, I was at the back away from busy street can't say whether front would be quiet.
Main issue for me was that the hotel was clearly under-staffed. I wanted to check out at 6:30 AM - only staff member was preparing breakfast. I wanted to buy a drink at the bar at 6:30 PM, only staff member was checking someone in.
For me the breakfast quality is not satisfactory - machine coffee, mediocre eggs and sausage. I'd rather pay £5.00 less and buy something in the many available city centre places. In fact I just ignored the hotel food on my second day.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Nottie Central overnights
Ideal for a short in town break. Clean comfortable, staff friendly, and good value.Very convenient location. Only problem was lack of breakfast food that was Gluten Free. No bacon! but I could not eat The sausages which staff informed me were not gluten free, nor could I eat the bread etc so little choice. Luckily I brought Gluten free bread as a precaution. Could do with berroom lights being brighter,only one very dim central light. Many guests probably have papers to read in room. Otherwise enjoyable stay.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Jdh93 Pretty standard
Booked a doulble with sofa bed. The hotel didn't make up the sofa bed so got told it would take 'too long' to sort out someone to do it. Got transferred to a room with two singles which was non-smoking. Rang down to change to a smoking room and got out back in a double with a sofa bed. Was told it would be about 10 minutes until someone would be in to make the bed. Nobody ever did. Just a rude lady on the reception, unsure of her name but had a polish accent. Everything else was good though bed was pretty comfy and literally no road noise even though there was a main road outside. Good shower etc. Just a shame about how unhelpful the lady was on reception.

Have recently stayed and enjoyed the city and the hotel. In fact we extended our stay to 3 nights. Staff were helpful and hotel very clean. My only criticism would be that the cooked breakfast could have been better. Rubbery scrambled eggs did not hit the spot. What ever happened to bacon!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by CMCN58 Best hotel bed ever
Just on the comfortable bed and pillows alone this hotel wins hands down for me. Despite being situated in the heart of the city, the glazing is so effective noise doesn't invade the sanctum of the bedroom
