For the first time every we decided to take the family out for Christmas dinner so mum didn't have to cook and shes cooked a few Christmas dinners in her time (Over 47). We had the most amazing time the service from the staff was outstanding and the meal was 10 out of 10. The homemade soup was delicious and if I could I would have took a tub home with me lol. There was a lot of veg choice to choose from for main course and the puddings was lush. Thank you guys for making it one of the best christmas days ever. Outstanding job by staff and the managers Simon and Stephen. 100% we will definitely do it again. Merry Christmas to you all and we will see you all in the New Year xx More...

Accepted an offer from hotel to compensate an earlier problem in 2019. Very good experience in a hotel full of character and history. So much better than modern hotels that all look the same. Extremely good room and very friendly and helpful staff. More...

Food was lovely staff were really nice had a comphy night's sleep and the view / balcony was a big plus ( we had king James room) only slight downside is that the hallways smells damp, not anyone's fault as it is a very old building but maybe an air freshener would help, also the furniture in the room was very dated, would have been nice to see more old fashioned furniture rather than the mdf 80s furniture! But we had a comphy and happy stay beautiful building, we will deffinatly come back More...

I had a week staying here and on arrival my room had no heating so I was given the Queen Victoria room. The room was very large and nicely decorated retaining its historical past, the bathroom was also large with a nice bath and shower. |The hotel itself is worth a visit just to see the building and the rooms within, history was every where you looked and each night there was wood fire in the lounge/bar.

My only experience of this place was having a drink after a group dog walk. Place seems nice and has lovely grounds. Outside patios are nice but the picnic tables either need cleaning properly or replacing as they are green.

Invited to an evening wedding reception and decided to enquire about room availability. Booked two rooms thanks to helpful and friendly staff. Staying the night and enjoying breakfast meant we could enjoy the wedding reception all the more More...

A beautiful hotel set in it's own grounds which were one Royal Hunting Grounds, the building which is now the hotel was the Royal Lodge.

I enjoyed a business meeting along with a buffet in the wonderful historic surroundings and beautiful looking building. The sitting areas of the reception, bar and restaurant were lovely and cosy and certainly worthy of bringing a loved one for the experience. The food was cooked and presented well and tasted lovely and the three assorted sweets were delightful. More...

Stayed here 1 night with a friend over the weekend. We chose this hotel due to its traditional look and style. The reception lady was very helpful, friendly and informative! we stayed in the Queen Anne room, which felt a million miles away from the reception area. 2 flgiths of stairs and some long corridors later, we arrived. Room is extremely dated, but we expected that. The grounds are just stunning. The gardens and everything surrounding is so idyllic i would stay just to view them again. if ever in Nottingham, i would happily stay here again. More...

Good service from all the staff and clean, but property is looking very tired. Wallpaper peeling, roof leaking in main areas etc. Fine for a pit stop but not recommended for a special occasion. More...

This is the second time we have stayed at Bestwood Lodge. It is a lovely old fashioned relaxing place to stay. The bar meals are excellent value and the breakfast sets you up for the day. Plenty of parking and friendly helpful staff. We would not hesitate to stay again when in the area. More...

We stayed here on Friday and Saturday nights for my daughters wedding day which was held in the magnificent ballroom, what can I say apart from wow! !! Absolutely stunning venue, and the team are just amazing my girl had the wedding of fairytales. Her day was absolutely perfect and the whole team could not do enough to make sure everything was perfect for us all. ||The rooms are full of character and retains so much of the personality of this majestic building, they were beautifully clean with everything we needed and more, the bed was soooo comfortable and the bedding was lovely. The ballroom that the wedding was hosted in is absolutely stunning with the most magnificent chandeliers I have ever seen, the chapel we held the ceremony in is absolutely beautiful so full of character and original features it was just stunning! ||The breakfast in the mornings was surprisingly good quality from s buffet breakfast lovely thick bacon and eggs cooked fresh to order, and as for the wedding breakfast omg divine doesn’t come close to doing it justice especially the Baileys white chocolate cheesecake.||If you are thinking of staying here then I have only 1 thing to say just do it! Lol you will not regret it it’s truly gorgeous, I really can’t thank the whole team enough for making my girls day absolutely perfect! More...

What a lovely place to stay! Looks amazing from the grounds, quiet, peaceful and nice walks around the lodge. The restaurant food was basic but enjoyable, the staff very friendly and helpful. The rooms were a good size with a lovely clean bathroom.||There is a cosy bar where you can get a drink and a snack. Just one thing to be wary of. If you have difficulty with steps a lot of luggage, or kids, make sure you request a room on the lowest floor. The stairs are a bit daunting, but I loved the tranquility of this place. More...

We arrived late at this hotel. The check in was very quick. We were offered help with our bags as there is no lift but we were OK. Although kitchen was just closing, they kept it open so we could order food from the bar. The food we ordered was fantastic. Also the bar has a great selection of drinks.||Breakfast had the usual. Would cook eggs to however you liked. It's a buffet. Nice as you can get up as many times as you like. ||Lovely grounds to take a walk in. ||The staff were always friendly especially towards my 3 year old. The rooms were clean and the beds comfortable. The shower did take a long time to get hot. 10 minutes and still wasn't very hot. ||We will definitly stay here again when in Nottingham. More...

Came in for a business meeting, beautiful bar area in a lovely building, good selection of soft drinks and coffees, attentive staff who were polite and helpful. We were served by Emily who made sure we had everything we needed. I had a look at the Christmas menu and it looks really good, may get my booking in nice and early. Thoroughly recommend More...

This is a remarkable place in a great location on the edge of Bestwood Country Park but is definitely in need of a bit of TLC. The staff are very friendly and extremely helpful.||The whole place is just overflowing with period features and decor and with a bit of investment could be something really special. For example, the 70's style coloured bathroom suite in the room we stayed in could be replaced with a modern but Victorian styled one and the bedroom ceiling would benefit from a quick skim of plaster.||The windows are single glazed (can't remember the last time I saw a single glazed window), maybe because it's a listed building, but some of the widow frames are in need of replacing too.||This is an incredible building with a long and fascinating history and a superb example of Victorian Gothic architecture. It's run by staff who have a pride in what they do, just needs a bit of money spending on it (are you listening Best Western?).||Breakfast was pretty good too, wide choice of food on offer.||There is no lift to the upper floor, however there is a stair lift for disabled use.

El sitio es precioso y muy tranquilo tiene unos jardines preciosos por donde pasear y desconectar de todo , nos atendieron muy bien y cada vez que necesitábamos un taxi ellos se preocupaban de llamar. Estuvimos un fin de semana y lo aprovechamos muy bien. El único inconveniente puede ser la distancia, ya que cogíamos taxi para poder movernos a la cuidad, pero valió la pena. Volveríamos a quedarnos ahí si volviéramos. More...

It is an unusual and historic property in lovely grounds. However, difficult to find and nasty speed humps in drive which are not illuminated, so a pain at night. Signage to the hotel is very poor. Service was good and rooms clean. More...

Das Hotel ist ein altes Jagdschloss, das gut erhalten ist. Die Außenanlage, die Lobby und die anderen Räumlichkeiten sind beeindruckend. Unsere Zimmer waren dafür recht einfach ausgestattet, aber dem Preis-leistungsverhältnis angemessen und sauber. Sehr nettes Personal, das auch auf Sonderwünsche wie z.B. Allergien beim Frühstücksbuffet eingeht.. More...
