Congratulations to the Winner – Kelly Jo Walters
I have lived in Nottingham for almost 20 years but there are parts of the city I haven’t ventured into for quite some time. Having children and a good local suburb means I don’t go into the city as much as I’d like. Being given the chance to review the Nottingham Hilton Hotel for a night and rediscover all that Nottingham has to offer was a great idea, and one I was excited to be part of.
The hotel is grand and imposing and holds a fabulous centre position within the city. Its location is just one of the best for discovering all that Nottingham has to offer. Shopping, theatre, eating out and nightlife, Nottingham is a vibrant city with plenty for families as well as just the adults. Our afternoon began with a lovely glass of Prosecco at the rooftop bar Saltwater. With beautiful views over Nottingham, I haven’t visited this bar for many years and it felt wonderful to go back. A lovely way to start the evening.
The Nottingham Hilton Hotel is clean, comfortable and modern inside. Our room, a Kingsize Deluxe was quite large and spaceous, and although we did hear some noise from the streets and sirens during the night (busy city life eh?), it was a good position too.
Our table at the in house restaurant, Nicholsons Bar was booked for 8pm and of course, we had to sample the cocktails to kick off the night! The menu is simple, not too complicated and focuses on grills and American bistro style food. Plenty of choice for vegetarians too. The service was impeccable, and our 3 course meals were interesting, varied and well presented. It was quiet though, which affected the atmosphere somewhat, but I can’t fault the food. Duck with a plum sauce was delicious and both the Cheesecake and Baileys Bread and Butter pudding went down a treat.
After a busy day wining and dining, it was time for some rest before hitting the shops the following day.
Breakfast at the Hilton is a lovely affair. Just as you’d expect, self service from the buffet and even though it was very busy (for which we’d been prepared) the food was fresh and plentiful. A hearty cooked breakfast followed by pastries and accompanied by lots of tea and coffee was a great way to start the morning.
If we had had an earlier start we would have sampled the Living Well spa, all included in your hotel stay. But alas, too much food and maybe cocktails and we felt we deserved that lie in!
Shopping in Nottingham is undeniably good. The majority of your high street chains plus smaller boutique shops too make for a diverse range and great choice. We were shopping for holiday items this weekend and it went very well! No need to refuel for lunch after our mid morning feast at the Hilton so plenty of time to check out all the shops we needed to.
Thank you to Hilton Hotels for allowing us to stay and sample what there is on offer in Nottingham. If you are visiting Nottingham anytime soon do consider this perfectly located hotel as a base for your stay.
