DoubleTree by Hilton is located on the outskirts of Nottingham city centre offering a picturesque setting with the perfect fusion of city glamour and rustic charm. The hotel is set in landscaped grounds with an established woodland making it a natural wildlife haven with water and fountains stretching the driveway and visits from geese, ducks, moorhens and a heron.
As couples enter the hotel grounds, an impressive glass architectural front entrance welcomes couples with a design-led port-conchère canopy and entry walkway that crosses the water. Ceremonies take place in The Garden Suite, which is on the ground floor with natural daylight, neutral wall coverings and overlooks the ornamental moat stretching along the glass-fronted landscape. With beautiful chandeliers hung above the aisle, The Garden Suite provides the perfect tranquil setting to say 'I do' for up to 100 guests.
Receptions can take place in two areas. The Orchard Suite has a function bar and toilets and is available for exclusive use of up to 230 guests. The Terrace Suite showcases natural daylight, neutral wall coverings, and green drapes and has a capacity of 80 guests. Outside of the suite is the Lavender Lounge and pre-reception area, providing the Terrace Suite with a function bar complete with comfortable seating and a cosy log-fire feature.
The Topaz Lounge and Bar offers the perfect space to meet guests the night before the big day for a drink and informal dining, whilst Blossoms Restaurant offers both a table d'Hôte and à la carte menu if a more formal dining experience is preferred. The venues offer wedding packages includes a king deluxe guest room for the pair followed by full English breakfast. Couples marrying at the venue will receive a free menu tasting before the wedding day. There's also special accommodation offered for the wedding guests.
