The face to face private function room at the Alea in Nottingham was perfect for our engagement party. The staff were very friendly and extremely helpful on the night. All our needs and requests were specifically catered for. I was worried that the full room would look too empty but the staff arranged the furniture perfectly to make this not... More

It has been quite sometime since we last visited this casino. There is now a separate bar area. However when we visited at 10 PM on a Friday night this area was freezing cold and empty apart from a couple of staff members. There is also a bar in the gaming area where we sat on some barstools. The wine... More

Thank you for taking time to leave a review for us. We completely understand your issue with the temperature. Unfortunately we are having a couple of issues with our air conditioning in that particular bar which is due to be sorted by the end of the week. We would be happy to replace any drinks if there is a problem,... More

I went here last week for a Christmas Party and I have to say the food was amazing.A 5 course meal was delicious and the veggie choice was good.The only downside is the drinks are expensive £9.00 pound for a double which alot of my workmates found to much. Overall great entertainment and a good night in general.

Attended a workplace Christmas party here in the upstairs function room, the room and tables where decorated lovely and it was set out nicely, the only downside was it was a little too dark when trying to eat the meal. The food though was absolutely fantastic and good portion sizes. The band "the money" were fantastic. The night on a... More

Fabulous room...food was excellent and staff were great - if you are looking for a venue to host a private party look no further I cannot praise any one individual because all the staff were great but the party package as a whole was great value for money - as for the photo booth/shoot - the photos speak for themselves...

Roulette was alright but not a fan of how much the drinks cost!!! Lost so much money - the win to lose ratio doesn't seem fair? I meant to go in there and win but I lost? Maybe change up the music as well?! Just a bit mainstream...

Thank you for taking time to leave a review for us. Really sorry to hear that you lost a lot of money, unfortunately that's just the way the game goes. Also sorry to hear that the music wasn't to your taste - we keep it mainstream to try to cater for everyone. We hope to welcome you back to Alea... More
