Best Western Bestwood Lodge Hotel

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

I stayed here earlier Aug, booked in for a week on business. I liked the look of the hotel and it was the closest to where I was working. All the staff were really friendly & couldn't do enough to help. The room was very clean & a decent size, the bathroom could have done with a bit of an update, but i wasn't expecting it to be "modern" Couple of mornings i had to wait for about 15 mins for the hot water, that was fine apart from the waste of water. The breakfast was very nice, if not a little limited & a couple of the days there wasn't a cooked buffet out, but they would get you one (might not have been that many people staying that night to justify a buffet) I had room service most nights, all the meals were a good size and nice, there was one that seemed a little over cooked. Finally there was a problem with the beer pumps every night, from being flat to hot & no one seemed to be able to fix it, stuck to bottles. All in all a lovely hotel, they accept dogs, but if your looking for a modern hotel this is not it. If i could have given this a "good" mark i would have.

a very grand old building where you could imagine the Sheriff of Nottingham might have lived. Set in a county park a short distance from the centre of Nottingham. It has a fair size car park, but signage to hotel could be improved. Both breakfast and evening meal offered a reasonable selection of dishes

pre weding meet up staff at the hotel really helpfull rooms good value bar and lounge 1st class restrant and evening meal really good breakfast 10/10 rooms good value gor money staff really helpful check in and out fast and really friendly overall eould recomend to averyone

It's quite a difficult review to write as there are many positives about this hotel but there a few areas that need to improve. We attended a wedding which for a venue is lovely and we couldn't fault the food and the rooms used for the wedding were very good. However areas of the hotel are tired and old and in need of tlc. Our room needed redecorating and a new bathroom which had mould in places and you could see where the bath had been revealed numerous times. The net curtains were grubby and stains on the carpet. Fortunately we barely spent anytime in the room. The outside is nice but disappointed that rubbish i.e. Cigarette packets and crisp packets were on the area where photos were taken plus over full ash trays. I think staff need to be more attentive to tidiness. Breakfast was very good lots of choice. Overall it was ok and for a wedding it was lovely but needs more attention to detail and in need of some modernising.

Started off reception asked if we were staying to eat,we asked if menus are in rooms to view,no I don't think so let me ask manager, no. Get to room two copies of menus one in a fancy folder. Room had not been thoroughly cleaned dust on bedside tables,shower area not over clean.Toiletries none existent one shower cap one sewing kit one shoe sponge two shampoo no soap or body wash. A good point does not advertise tea making just kettle wow tea making goods in room. Wife is at the best quite poor in rooms. This has to be one of the most noisiest rooms I've ever stayed in out of our window appears to be the rear of kitchens wheelie bins being open closed and moved all the time ,what sounded like drilling for over a hour around 9pm. room with a corridor door outside.So avoid room 15. One of our beds (2 singles )makes enough noise to wake the dead, now you know I'm not happy as doing this review while still in the hotel.

A platinum member with Best Western and wasn't offered a free upgrade. Evening meal ordered and had to request 1hour after ordering looks like I'd been forgotten as food finally arrived after 1.5hrs, won't be going back. Very disappointed as building has lots of character and history

Arrived about 1pm, room not ready, not a problem. Reception staff a bit harassed as 2 weddings that weekend. Asked for a bite to eat in the bar & told they kitchen might be closed due to 2 weddings! However, we had bacon & brie sandwiches-delish!!! Later we were told our room numbers-no offer to show us the way or carry luggage, we were on the 3rd floor & it's a LONG way. The twin room was clean & tide & basic, please don't try to bend down to pick anything up in the shower. The grounds are superb as is the building itself. The outside areas were quite lovely however the designated "smoking area" had no ashtrays. This could be a really fabulous place however no effort seems to be made to set it apart. Breakfast was quite adequate buffet style. Plenty of staff milling around...but that's all they did, no attempts made to clear used crockery. Public areas seemed to have been missed by the cleaners, the stairs etc were quite grubby. I would stay again but not in the same room.

Old building with some interesting features and history,some nice country park walks.Like many older buildings needs some modernisation.Based on what we ate quality could be improved.Handy location to visit Nottingham and surrounding area.

I’m now in to my 27th year of staying at Bestwood Lodge and I can’t fault it. The hotel is a beautiful historic building, the rooms are clean and spacious. The breakfast is among the best I have ever had and the staff are very friendly and helpful. I am looking forward to a return trip in a few months’ time.

Here you live the history of Great Britan. A Pub area in the middle with tasty pub-food, a breakfast only for english lovers without any selection rather than bacon and beans. The rooms are really historic and with a nice flair, water takes a while to heat up. But it is clean and sleeping was OK.
