The Nottingham Belfry - A QHotel

... we have ourselves a few awkward situations.
Sunday, traditionally a rest day so we did just that...the only thing on the agenda was a traditional English sunday roast lunch at Kirsty's parents house (Maggie & Dave).
Lunch did not disappoint, an amazing feast with the best tatties (potatoes) and great company - felt like a home away from home.
As most Sunday lunches end up.....we left about 5pm and decided ...
Caught up with the relatives at Toli's place. Richard bbq'd and we ate. Julie had managed to talk Laura and Rebecca to donate some shoes to her collection, plus Laura gave Julie an unused handbag. We tried to coordinate some travels together so working rosters were compared with our travel plans. Hopefully we will work something out. After eating we said good bye and headed back to Southwell to pack. Packing completed we went to bed getting a but excited about going to ...
... is your 23kgs. I didn't find out until we were checked in at Sydney that we were allowed 2 x 23kg bags each. Even the Cathay Pacific girl said it is an excuse to go shopping, so I am only doing what was suggested :-) I am a bit excited that we leave for Paris via London on Monday. I am looking forward to Paris, I hope it is the romantic city people say it is, not that we need Paris for ...
... Roman wall erected as a defence against marauding northern tribes, it was a massive structure stretching from one coast to the other. Pretty amazing any of it still exists today. Then onto York. York is England's most complete medieval walled city, the most spectacular sight here I think, is the York Minster. We head off on a guided walking tour of the city taking in the maze of quaint streets including the area known as the ...
... else I'm also becoming more aware of the ways of life at home and the different figures of speech we use etc... that we take for granted. I realise this when people start questioning behaviours that at home would be nothing out of the ordinary, for example emptying the contents of a water bottle on the garden in order to not waste water! I have also found that while being away from home I've become very proud to be able to call ...

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!!
