Arranged to have a cup of tea with my Aunty Dorothy who is an octogenarian and her partner Eric who is a nonagenarian. Now before thinking I have the longevity genes, Dorothy is not a blood relative. My Aunty Marion who is my mothers sister reached her early 80s so I live in hope that I will still be able to annoy my darling wife for another 30 years. Derby ...

I don't know what it will be like going back home, of course I will be glad to be in familiar surroundings and around the people who have been part of my life for so long but at the same time I will miss what has come to be my life here at the University. However, I also know that I would love to do a tour of Australia and see everything the country I call home has to offer.... maybe that will be my big trip for next year! :) - ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Lace Market Hotel Nottingham
I just love this place!!!
Stayed here in late 2004 whilst working up in Nottingham. It is a well located, contemporary boutique hotel that is just SO refreshing. Comfy modern rooms with dark wood decor, white and chrome bathrooms, room service from its excellent in-house restaurant Merchants - I just love it!!! A small complaint: the staff need to be a little bit less pretentious. They know that it is a great gig, and for those that stay here regularly, so do we!
I stayed here just before Christmas. Couldn't fault it! Luxuriously appointed rooms with wonderfully heavy light-blocking curtains - I really coveted those. Great bar to sit in downstairs (nice coffee, too, if you're there in the daytime). Best of all are the friendly, professional staff: there was a potential 'incident' at reception which was defused quickly and professionally by the manager's light touch. I recommend it to anyone who needs somewhere non-corporate, slightly funky and with a really personal touch to stay in Nottingham.
We endured just one night in a pokey room at Hart's Hotel on the outskirts of Nottingham - £130 for a room which was so small that the bathroom had to have a sliding door! Also, they made no mention of the fact that their restaurant is across the road and hence we got soaked twice in the rain!). So we checked out and opted for a "superior" room at the Lace Market. What a contrast - sure, it's in a lively area but at least we were in town and the room was twice as spacious - and not twice the price. Room service dinner was amazing (they worked out without prompting that we were honeymooners and offered us the full restaurant menu) and we also spent a relaxing afternoon at the rather smart pool at Holmes Place Health Club - it's free for hotel guests. Staff were young and amazingly helpful - and the manager even helped us to park our car. We'll definately go back. We loved Room 30!
The Lace Market - Not such a big deal!
Stayed here in August 2001 (yes I know I'm writing the review a little late). All in all an okay hotel. Not the designer chic hotel it would like to be. Front Desk staff were friendly. I requested a quiet room and was allocated a room at the rear of the hotel. An apartment with a balcony overlooked my bedroom, and on the Sat night, the people had a party, very noisy indeed. I reported it to the night porter (no manager on duty) and he did not seem to care. Reception made a cock up with my credit card on check out. Sure enough when I got my statement I was charged twice. This was fixed with one phonecall. If you get a good rate, then why not stay here - there is no way I would pay rack!
Having read the other reviews on this website, I had some doubts whether I would enjoy my stay. I did enjoy the long August Bank Holiday weekend spent here,but bearing in mind some of the criticisms made,would advise others to go prepared.
This is more like an upmarket Travel Lodge than a luxury hotel. The rooms are basic (small but well designed) and hot!! The location is very handy to the town centre and local nightlife, but the real problem is the pretentious air about the place.
I spend two nights each week staying in hotels, so know a good hotel when I see one. This isn't it. At the end of our stay, we sent a letter with fifteen complaints on it. The reply informed us that we were difficult customers and were no longer welcome in their hotel!
The hotel looked smart immediately and had a professional feel to it and was nicely nestled away on a back street - so no real traffic at night. We were impressed with the layout and general appearance of the room and were surpised by the sheer size of the bed. En suite facilities were particularly to our liking with all the usual amenities. A handy book which highlights some of the better places to visist for food and what not was very welcome. Mini bar seemed well stocked and the room service was quick and very tasty.
Home to Hen/Stag Parties
I have stayed at this hotel a couple of times, the first time we really enjoyed the stay, the hotel is contemporary and comfortable and is in a good position in Nottingham and the restaurant is excellent. However a second stay we found ourselves located near the lift and endured a night of being constantly woken by partying girls out on a hen night - and apparently it is the place to stay for such a night... Hotel reception were unconcerned about our lack of sleep presumably because they get more money from the large group staying for the hen night!!
Wouldn't go again due to lack of assistance from hotel staff.
Extremely Relaxed Stay
Travelled down for the football at the City Ground decided upon the Lace Market as they do reasonable deals at weekends. Very compact but well designed hotel with an extremely warm and comfortable feel to it, similar to the Malmaison chains. The restaurant is excellent and prices are very reasonable. The hotel cannot be faulted and is well situated for Nottinghams bars and clubs.
