Ideally placed for those in search of cultural adventures, the Dakota Nottingham sits within reach of the main attractions of the city centre as well as the natural wonders of the Peak District National Park and the Robin Hood legends of Sherwood Forest. A sleek facade boasting a hazy blue glow hides the stylish interior of the hotel, which features exposed metal and brickwork, wooden floors and over-sized sofas that create the feel of a New York loft. The hotel is also well positioned for further exploration of the East Midlands, with Derby, Sheffield and Newark-on-Trent accessible via a short drive. Over in nearby Matlock, guests can scale the Heights of Abraham, tour underground caverns and browse the gift shops. Spacious en suite bedrooms combine soft wool carpeting and fresh cotton linens with modern amenities such as flat screen plasma TVs and walk-in power showers. Guests can also opt to upgrade to an executive room, complete with a king-size bed, for a £10 surcharge per night. A bottle of wine can be added for a £15 surcharge. The eye-catching designer bar and grill serves seasonal fare using locally sourced produce such as 28-day aged Derbyshire beef and varied drinks. The hotel also features a mini fitness suite equipped with a range of gym equipment. Animals are more than welcome to join owners during their stay for a £25 supplement. Further supplements also include 24-hour Wi Fi for a £5 surcharge.
