The Nottingham Belfry - A QHotel
Travel Blogs from Nottingham
Years ago when we stayed with Beth and Barry in Coleby, we witnessed a flight of Vulcan bombers taking off - something very special at the time. The Vulcans are no more, but the RAF airfield is now used by AWACS. Two of these came in just before sunset, but so low and fast we had no time ...
Today we had a really slow start as Lauren was sick and we were all tired from staying up late last night. We left Lauren at home and drove to Wollaton Hall, which is an Elizabethan house. We walked around in the beautiful grounds and took some ...
Today was a beautiful day and always will be, it'll be Rob and Sarah's anniversary.
They had a magical wedding ceremony at Saint Peter and Saint Paul Parish of Oxton. We travelled by Rolls Royce to the Church and I was very proud to follow Sarah down the aisle.
We celebrated that afternoon and evening at Norwood Park, Southwell which was absolutely brilliant. We had a wonderful day and evening, congratultations and thank you Rob and ...
From Christmas eve we moved to live at Haywood, we had our own little living space and used it as our base until February 3rd.
We spent Christmas eve celebrating at Haywood with Aunty Caroline, Charlie, June, Tom and Will. And Emma, Joe and Polly. Dad and Sally made a lovely dinner. Some of us were really cool in patterned jumpers, we sang songs ringing bells and play charades. It ...
... and at my home university for example lunch is when you meet up with your friends at the uni cafe, you can retreat to the library for quiet study and of course the many events organised by the various societies. Although it is a bit of a change living in Nottingham for four months I'm yet to experience a great culture shock, it's nice to still have that sense of familiarity while at the same time being introduced to new things and experiences at a comfortable pace :) ...

Historical Traveler Reviews The Nottingham Belfry - A QHotel
Can't say that the location of this hotel is great, being neither city or country, but the hotel itself is fine. The staff are pleasant and helpful, the food and facitlities are good. The rooms are fine but beware any minibar users - there isn't one.
i booked this hotel as a treat for my boyfriends birthday, directly with the hotel itself. i booked the 'romantic' package, which was £199 for bed and breakfast in the suite. which was GORGEOUS!! included was also a bottle of champagne, roses, and chocolates. now my fella wouldn't really have appreciated the roses, so i contacted the manager directly and got them swopped for a bottle of house wine.
Myself and my fiance stayed here on a two night complimentary weekend break on a bed, breakfast and evening meal basis.
Stayed here Saturday and Sunday night of the August Bank holiday weekend. We booked from the late availibility options on Marston Hotels own website and paid £65 per room ( two of us in the room) per night. For two nights bed and breakfast for two total paid was £130 which was an absolute bargain.
Good Weekend Value
Stayed for 2 nights over the bank holiday weekend to visit relatives in Nottingham.
Useful location ,impressive decor, good room size with plenty of lighting to read by which is unusual in hotels.
Everything clean and in good condition.
Breakfast choice very good.
Poor ventilation - window opening restricted for security.
Expensive food and drink.
At the laterooms weekend rates of £55 per room inc breakfast excellent value ( if you dont eat in)
Good business hotel
Stayed over a weekend for a meeting. Good businsess hotel with everything you need including friendly efficient staff. Only downside was the rooms were too hot with no air conditioning. The small window only opens a little so there was very little scope for ventilation which did not help.
An overpriced motel
Thought this was pretty awful. The hotel has absolutely no soul or character, was very overpriced and the food was fairly poor - especially for the price. I wouldn't go back again if you paid me!
The staff are pleasant though.
New hotel, will stay again
Very new modern design hotel next to a new business park. Food and breakfast was good. Gym and swimming pool were also very nice and well equiped. It's closer to motorway than nottingham. The only fault was the bed, it is a bit too hard for me. I will stay there again and happy to recommend.
After constantly being dissapointed with drab 4* hotels in Nottingham city centre, i decided to try the Marston Belfry, located just on othe outskirts of town, near J26 of the M1.
My family and I stayed at the Nottingham Belfry last weekend. It had only been open a month, so everything was brand new. I found the staff to be friendly, helpful and polite. The decor was contemporary and to a high standard. The pool was lovely, and big enough to swim properly in, and the jacuzzi was absolutely fabulous, as were the steam room and sauna!!
