Stately Elegance in Nottingham


Bestwood Lodge, formerly a royal hunting lodge, is a unique country house hotel nestled in 700 acres of Nottingham's beautiful parkland. Steeped in history, the hotel combines the elegance and beauty of a small stately home with all the comforts and amenities expected by today’s discerning traveller. Boasting a stunning restaurant & bar, a variety of function rooms and a chapel for weddings, the hotel is within easy reach of Nottingham City Centre and East Midlands Airport.

Having belonged to the Crown since mediaeval times, King Charles II eventually gave Bestwood Lodge to his son, the first Duke of St. Albans, and it stayed in the Beauclerk family until 1939.  Now it's all yours to enjoy…

Wonderful, would recommend!

"Booked last minute and I am so grateful that I got a room here- absolutely wonderful hotel, friendly staff and room was huge, spotless, bed comfy. Beautiful location too, unfortunately I couldn’t make the most of it, wish I had been able to stay a second night! Plenty of space and choice for breakfast, I have already recommended this hotel to friends and will be back."

Great Stay

We booked to stay here for only the 2nd time in 30 years. We had previously stayed in 1992 on our wedding night so returned to celebrate our 30th.
Had a great time, staff very friendly, food excellent and when Stephen, the manager found out our reason for staying he upgraded us to the room we had had all those years ago.
The surrounding grounds are also great for a walk.

Comfortable and friendly hotel

I have been staying here for many years and always receive a warm welcome from manager Stephen and friendly staff. The rooms are comfortable, I had a lovely view of the grounds. Room and bathroom were clean. The food is excellent, breakfast can be enjoyed in the beautiful dining room. I can highly recommend the bar snacks - portions are huge! Peace, quiet, tranquility- bliss.
