Hart’s is an award-winning 32-bedroom boutique hotel in Nottingham city centre, with a private car park and secluded garden. One of the highest-rated hotels in the region, it was purpose-built on the old ramparts of Nottingham Castle in 2003, with striking lines, curved buttresses, a dashing yet welcoming lobby and a softly furnished, light-filled residents’ bar. Bedrooms are faultlessly equipped, with high ceilings and plenty of natural light. Eight have private terraces with access directly into the garden, and most inward-facing rooms present an unexpected bonus: far-flung views across the city to the countryside beyond. In the foreground is the Park Estate, notable Victorian residences begun by the Duke of Newcastle in the 1820s and now a conservation area. In the restaurant, Hart’s Kitchen, you’ll encounter modern British cooking at its best – no extravagant flights of fancy, but first-class dishes created using only the freshest seasonal ingredients.
