Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Nic25 Accomadating but spa shut
Myself and my fiance booked one weekend away with a view to having a 'spa break'. Upon arrival we were informed that the spa had closed due to a fire on the Thursday before. We booked our stay last minute #day before# so would have been nice if somebody could have called or emailed to let us know before we set off. However staff did organise a free taxi to and from the Hilton to use their facilities and free parking, which we did do. It would have been nice to go back up to our rooms from the spa rather than venturing out to a taxi with wet hair etc, but we were relieved they had something else in place seeing as we were already there when we found out #when checking in#. We liked our standard room and had a quiet and comfatable sleep. We didn't have dinner at the hotel because it is too expensive. However we did pay the 15 pounds p.p for breakfast as on a Sunday morning not much else was open in the town. I would check the spa is open in future but we would return.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by pastajo Shopping trip made good.
Stopped overnight on Saturday to enjoy the shopping experience.
The hotel had experience a fire in their spa suite two days prior to our visit, but this didn't have a negative effect at all. We arrived to park and realised that the barriers to the car park were removed enabling us to park for the duration for free. On checking in, the concierge thoroughly explained the situation and the provisions they had in place to accommodate anybody that wished to use a spa. This had no impact on us at all. We just needed somewhere to rest and freshen up in comfort and this hotel ticked all of the boxes for our purpose.

Really enjoyed our stay. Room reasonably priced with good facilities; right in the center of Nottingham. Breakfast was particularly sumptuous. Enjoyed pool with really great steam room.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Avril1267 Fire alarm!
Usually stay here on business and generally the hotel is fine. Could be updated but always clean. Staff are always friendly and helpful. No free wifi even in public places which is poor as rates are very high! During my recent stay the fire alarm went off...twice! Out of hotel until 6am and I am still waiting on contact from the hotel which is not good as I was told someone would contact me that day...very poor service!!!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by DaveG55 Very poor for a Crowne Plaza
Room was not ready upon arrival and stood waiting around in reception. Staff did not recognize platinum status and did not apologise for delay. Went to the gym which is dated and nowhere near enough equipment. I then went to the club lounge to discover no food left and no drinks and this was 40 minutes after it was due to open. Staff didnt seem to have a clue what they were doing.
From now on I will make the journey to Birmingham where they do everything right. Poor, Poor hotel

Be aware that you have to pay to park in there car park, not only do you have to pay enough for a room you have to pay £12 extra to park

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.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JS61 Good value on Advance Rate
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
