All you need to know – The Nottingham Sherwood Hotel (formerly Park Inn Hotel)

Mansfield Road, Nottingham NG5 2BT

We can’t wait to welcome you to Puddle Ducks at The Nottingham Sherwood Hotel – in the meantime, here’s some information that we hope you find useful. Have a splashtastic time!


Mansfield Road, Nottingham NG5 2BT

Parking: Park in the hotel car park round the back of the hotel and you will receive free parking whilst using the Park Inn facilities. You MUST enter your car registration on the keypad at the health club reception or main reception to show you are a legitimate  car park user or you may be charged (fined) for parking!

From the car park enter into the hotel through the rear entrance and proceed to main reception area and either take the lift or stairs to the 1st floor. If using the lift you will need to request a key card from main reception in order to operate it. Turn left out of the lift and walk down the corridor until almost at the end and just before the set of double doors turn left and enter into the health club   As the changing rooms are small please ensure you use a locker to store your belongings to ensure there is room for everyone to change and please bring a padlock to use the lockers.
