Overview

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.

Nice rooms. Friendly service. Good location
Other Comments
Restaurant very noisy. Although the overall offer was good value the food portions were not very generous / missing some nice touches e.g. dips with the chicken, side salad with the burgers, the mussels were starter portion size, the cod portions were not consistent and small. I would have felt rather short changed if I had paid full price for the evening meal.

The location is outstanding, surrounded by mature trees and extensive grounds/gardens that form part of the university Park campus. But is still only a short walk to the A52 Derby Road to go into the city centre.
Other Comments
A little disappointed with the staff on two counts. Firstly I enquired about the architectural detail of the building relating to its eco friendly status but no-one could identify a source or location for this information. I was advised to go to the De Vere website but after an extensive trawl it was impossible to find any detail. There are several references to the “eco friendly quality” of the building but no further detail of what are the attributes of the building in this respect. Secondly we asked about access to Woolaton Park and was shown on a map where the nearest entrance was. This was incorrect and in fact the entrance was in the other direction. This meant we were directed in the wrong direction involving an approx 2 mile walk along the busy A52 road and back into the estate from the eastern end when we could have avoided this. Shame really.

Everything was lovely apart from the food in the Restaurant which was terribly overcooked and spoiled what could have been a perfect stay.
