De Vere Orchard Hotel is set in landscaped parkland within the grounds of The University of Nottingham and opposite East Midlands Conference Centre. The hotel uses state-of-the-art emission-reducing technology and is highly energy efficient.

It's 15 minutes' walk from Wollaton Hall -- a "fabulous" (Lonely Planet) Elizabethan mansion that houses the city's Natural History Museum. It also featured in the final instalment of Christopher Nolan's "Batman" films. Admission to this Grade I-listed country house is free. There is a walled botanical garden, which is open Sundays, and a deer park and Industrial Museum in the grounds. Highfields Park, a 20-minute walk from the hotel, has a boating lake, and bowling and croquet facilities.

The centre of Nottingham -- "a dynamic county capital with big-city aspirations, atmospheric historical sights, and a buzzing music and club scene", according to Lonely Planet -- is a 15-minute drive from the hotel. Here you can visit Nottingham Castle or the City of Caves -- a subterranean network of over 500 caves dating back to the Dark Ages. There is also the Galleries of Justice, a crime museum that occupies Nottingham's old courthouse and gaol.

De Vere Orchard Hotel has 202 bedrooms, all with flat-screen TVs and free Wi-Fi. Bramleys Brasserie restaurant -- named after the Nottinghamshire Bramley apple -- serves modern British cuisine. There is also a bar, an outside terrace, two biodiverse roof gardens and a gym.

Very pleasant and efficient staff on check in, lovely modern hotel, bedroom and gardens. The evening meal was excellent ( especially the soup ) and the house wine was a very "gluggable" Chilean cabernet sauvignon. Definitely one for another visit.

We visited the Orchard courtesy of a Travelzoo offer, which for £89 per couple was unbelievable value.

Accommodation was to a very good standard and the shower had a good pressure. Especially enjoyed the breakfast where there was plenty of choice.

The only negative point was at Dinner, where the service was slow and dis-organised. It resulted in our main order going missing and having to wait an hour for it to appear after speaking to the manager. The food when it did finally arrive was very good. It also appeared that other tables were suffering other issues such as wrong food being delivered to the wrong tables. Did notice it was very busy on Friday Night when the singer was performing (who was very good) so this may have caused the issue.

The whole experience of the stay was very good value. However, the decline in the quality of the food is dramatic. The food was lukewarm and over all poorly executed. There was not a single Brandy glass in the whole hotel (very surprising)
