    Superb

    We felt very at home in the Strathdon hotel.There was a very welcoming and friendly atmosphere from the moment we arrived.Our room was clean and comfortable,and all the facilities in the room were excellent.At breakfast we were served by a lovely young man who couldnt do enough for us,and the breakfast was excellent.

    Superb

    The reception staff are very professional and helpful. We got recommendations for restaurants and bars and all were marked on a map. We rang to reception for a third cup and saucer, and this was delivered straight away. We were asked if there was anything else we needed and requested more towels and shampoo and these were also brought up promptly.The location is good, room very clean and quiet and very good value for money.

    Parking is confusing and a bit of a trudge. We paid hotel 9.50 for 24hrs and paid the extra we stayed after that direct to car park attendant. As a party was three female adults we were allocated a smallish double and a single. We asked for a triple but none was available. The room was set up for two but as I said, anything else we needed was brought up quickly.

    Very good

    Location is quite convenient and close to almost everything which was perfect for my stay. Not too far, walking distance from restuarants and city centre.

    Considering it was meant to be an executive suite, other than the roomsize it was a pretty bog standard room. Shower could have been better - other hotel standard rooms have better shower facilities and my room that I stayed in was meant to be an executive suite so my understanding is better than a standard room. I dont think I would go for the same room in future.

    Fabulous

    We only really used the Hotel as a base for sleeping as we were visiting our Student daughter and spent the days at her house.However we found the room clean and comfortable. A little noisy due to the proximity of a busy road and the Police Station, but expected from a city hotel.Good situation for us, 5 minute walk to our daughters house and minutes into the city. We would use this hotel again.

    Superb

    The location was perfect for my stay. I was slightly wary of the fact I might not sleep beause of traffic in the city - I have to say that this was the best sleep I've had in a long time! Thanks Cosy room, en suite facilities perfect, Breakfast was better than adequate, the perfect start to the day. Real value for money to stay here.

    I was slightly disappointed that although I was told there was satellite tv I had a choice of only a few channels. I made the staff aware of it's not working properly - I must say, however that this did not hamper my enjoyment too much.

    Location - Iwas singing at the Albert Hall and.

    There was no air conditioning in our room. Too hot and then too noisy with window open.

    bed was comfortable bathroom clean and tidy all staff were very friendly and welcoming

    big party on saturday evening which was VERY noisy until midnight at least until i had to use earplugs to get to sleep. My room was quite a long way down the corridor so i dread to think what customers nearer the party did. The room was very small, not really a problem as I was only there on buisness and just needed the room for a place to sleep but if i were to holiday there I would not choose to stay in room 202 again especially with my partner.

    The breakfast was excellent.

    The noise in the early hours, I seemed to have been put on a floor with all the people heading out for a drinking session. I did therefore have an interrupted nights sleep.

    Nothing i liked really.

    Booked this as it was suppose to be walking distance to the FM arena and train station, this was not true, it is certainly not walking distance, we had taxis from station to hotel and from hotel to arena, around £5-7 e/w, checked into hotel and got to room, walked in room and could hardly swing a cat, that didnt bother me as it was one night, the noise was horrendous, constant banging and noise, banging was pots and pans and water pipes and extractor fan, i called reception about the noise, oh yes sir your room is above the kitchens and we cannot put you in another room and informed me it will be quieter after 11pm when the kitchen closes, (so why use this room above kitchen) it was a comlete joke and not helpful staff, again early in morning lots of noise, we got up and had breakfast, the full english breakfast is self service, it seemed the eggs and bacon had been sitting there all morning and not fresh, very average food. The whole stay at this hotel spoilt the weekend to see a concert, if i was ever to return to nottingham this would be the last place i would stay, i now know why it was cheap and available, my advice would be only stay here if nothing else is available. Very disappointing place!! do not stay in room 213!!!!!!! you wont sleep with noise and the view is a roof covered in bird droppings, lovely!!

    Convenient for city centre and tram line. Good breakfast menu

    Too noisy - room right opposite lift which clanked and banged until the early hours. Late-comers and noisy residents drinking on 1st floor "smoking area" balcony just below my window until early hours. No proper double glazing - just secondary glazing, which does NOT cut down traffic noise sufficiently.

    Ideally located for Firefest 2012 hosted at Nottingham Rock City, 2 mins walk away from the hotel. In fact perfect for my stay. All the staff were friendly and polite and very helpful. The reduced parking rate was also very helpful.

    Basic, needs moderdised. Poor Shower, no cubicle, just curtain. Two fire alarms went off 3am and 8am though cant say whos fault it was. Expensive stay at £50.

    Superb

    I loved the location. It was just a minutes walk from the city centre and it was excellent value for money. In addition the room was well equipped and was comfortable. I was visiting for a girls weekend and found it ideal particularly as it was close to popular city bars and restaurants. This is an ideal hotel when on a budget.
