David and I went home this weekend to visit my school friends, and stayed in a hotel behind my all-time favourite club, Rock City. With the booking being affordable and not very well researched, and the name having z’s in it, we expected something Premier Inn style upon arrival – nice enough but nothing to write home about. What we got instead was a comfortable, homey space complete with a power shower, a kitchenette with hob, dishwasher, microwave and more, a flat screen TV, a sofa, an ironing board, the list goes on.
These images are taken from the Roomzzz site, as I was far too busy eating cheese, dancing to Evanescence and rehashing 14 years of friendship with my oldest BFFs to take any photos. So credit to them for their photography skillzzz, alongside their hoteling skillzzz.
Roomzzz is close to the city centre, a 30 second walk to Rock City, quiet despite its location and decked out in such a way that you feel like you’re renting a little apartment, not just a room. I felt very at home, and can’t help thinking it would be a great choice for business travelers that have to sleep in hotels all week long. The difference having your own hob and dishes makes is insane. My only complaint really would be that the room was listed as bed and breakfast, when breakfast was in fact a basket of ‘grab and go’ bits placed in reception until 10am. We got there at 9:45 and everything was gone. Our hungover selves were very sad. (As a side note, the Roomzzz Manchester Penthouse Suite, above, also looks divine.)
I’ll be staying here again.
A couple of things to do when staying in Nottingham: Visit the Kitty Cafe and say hello to Heathcliffe, the enormous 1yo Maine Coon. Visit the castle walls – they’re impressive (the interior of the castle itself… not so much.)
A couple of places to drink when visiting Nottingham: Boilermaker. Pit and Pendulum.
A couple of places to recover from drinking when visiting Nottingham: Lee Rosy’s. Delilah.
A couple of places to eat when visiting Nottingham: Annie’s Burger Shack. Dolce.
And a couple of things to remember: We love Robin Hood and we love Brian Clough, don’t question it. ‘Tabs’ are ears. A bread roll is a cob. We are in the midlands (yes, that is a real place.) Aaaaaand, our statues are there to be posed with – enjoy. 😉
