We stayed at the Reindeer when going to see a friend's band nearby. A warm, cosy & very friendly pub with well-kept ales. A warm, comfortable & clean room with a great shower. Rama, the landlord could not be more helpful and nothing was too much trouble. Breakfast was very nice and he cooked it later than he would normally...

Rooms lovely, recently redecorated. Breakfast good and pub in walking distance of town. Was Bank Holiday Monday so very quiet - not a lot of atmosphere but maybe due to the holiday. Only take cash - or at that time but there are cash machines located not far away.

We stayed at the Reindeer for the first week of August 2016 as I was in Southwell that week playing for services in Southwell Minster (accompanying the choir of St. Bartholomew's, Penn). The ensuite room was lovely and homely and the breakfast each morning was excellent. What I found really wonderful was the friendliness of Rama, Leela and the other...

Booked a family room for my wife and i thinking there would be plenty of space for 2 people. The room and bathroom was tiny. There was not even a dressing table for my wife to get ready for a wedding and at 6'1" i could barely move in the shower. The bed was a small cheap double well below...

Very small room and very small bed (good job we are not big people). No mattress cover and thin, cheap bedding. Worn towels and shower room crammed into a corner of the room. Window would not open or close (broken) and generally felt uncomfortable in this room. Booked via Booking.com and the money was taken immediately which is not surprising...

Staff on the phone was unhelpful and wouldn't accept the booking as he needed 50% deposit, I was happy to pay this but then wouldn't accept it as to early and told me to phone back in January! and wouldn't be a problem to get the rooms....

We stayed here for one night as we were attending a wedding in the area. The room itself was ok it was clean,comfortable and had everything we needed. The general appearance of the corridors and public areas really needs updating and requires attention. I appreciate this is not a hotel it is a pub that offers rooms but could be...

Both hotels.com and Raindeer web site state you get breakfast. The sign out side the pub states bed and breakfast. but when you arrive they don't do breakfast. When you are on a tight budget you don't expect to have to go out and spend more on breakfast . Very disappointed at all the miss leading and incorrect advertisement. Will...

We booked at the last minute and did not have time to check reviews of this hotel as there was little spare accommodation available in the Nottingham area. Southwell is a lovely town and the Reindeer is located on the main road leading into the town centre with parking available outside. Firstly, the Good. Friendly staff. A good bathroom with...

Myself and a group of friends stopped for one night before the Southwell Triathlon. Check in was fine but the staff member didn't know anything about breakfast as "she only works on the bar". After speaking to the owner we requested if we could have breakfast earlier for 7:15am which he agreed would be fine, but as a previous review...
