This 4-star hotel is located right in the heart of Nottingham, just a five minute walk from the train station. It is contemporary and stylish, with the emphasis on relaxation, boasting a luxurious Urban Escape Spa. Not only is there a gym, swimming pool, steam room, sauna and Jacuzzi, but a range of spa treatments and an invigorating ice fountain (that will certainly cure your hangover!). The restaurant is super-slick – light pours in through the glass roof of a tree-lined arcade, so you feel as though you’re dining alfresco on holiday. However, The Switch Bar is a bit more of a drink-pints-watch-sports-proper-pub-grub sort of venue, if you fancy something a bit more traditional.
This big, ornate Victorian building is located right in the city centre and gives you traditional simplicity with a little bit of luxury. The rooms are fresh and contemporary, with big beds and swanky en-suite bathrooms. However, the Living Well Fitness Centre takes this hotel from comfortable sleeping place to plush hotel. As well as a gym, sauna, steam room and Jacuzzi, this 4-star hotel also has a 60ft whirlpool swimming pool. We want to say that this is ideal for relaxation – but we reckon it’s more likely to be the source of much hilarity.
Situated just next to the infamous Lace Market and Old Market Square - prime trendy drinking hotspots - this 4-star deluxe boutique hotel gives you a little bit of luxury in a top location. The bedrooms are spacious and stylish and the restaurants are a bit swanky if you fancy a sophisticated gentlemen’s dinner. 1882 is a relaxed and informal restaurant, but if you want something even more exclusive, the hotel also offers private dining with all the trimmings. You get a red carpet entrance, champagne upon arrival, and you can sit back and admire the chandeliers whilst you are served canapés before a lavish three course meal.
Park Plaza Hotel
This 4-star deluxe hotel is located in the heart of Nottingham and has style on its side as well as location. The rooms are plush and modern with en-suite bathrooms, there is a fitness suite for all guests and the bar and restaurant are very impressive. The Light Bar has sultry lighting with a glowing, fluorescent blue bar, giving it an aura of mystery and exclusivity that will make you feel like you’re drinking in a futuristic spy movie (or maybe that’s just us). The restaurant serves award-winning Pan-Asian cuisine with traditional recipes from China, South-East Asia and Japan, as well as an extensive range of cocktails.
This 3-star hotel is just a couple of minutes’ walk from the Old Market, which is the heart of Nottingham’s city life, and the Lace Market – bursting with the city’s best pubs, bars and clubs. The guest rooms are traditional and welcoming and the restaurant serves a hearty fry up until 11am - could be handy if the idea of stumbling further than downstairs is too much to bear – but you have the city on your doorstep if you’re feeling more adventurous. The hotel has a couple of bars too, so you can get a few drinks in before you even step foot out into this city’s notorious nightlife.
