Hotel Review: Muthu Clumber Park Hotel and Spa, Nottinghamshire

Last weekend we spent some time visiting family and friends in the midlands. And whenever we do go to visit, we like to stay in a hotel that’s not too far away.

We chose Clumber Park primarily because of its location – it was only a five-minute drive from my nan’s – but also because of it’s spa facilities and pool.

The room

Our room was pretty nice at first glance. We’d only booked their basic double room and it was a good size, clean and nicely furnished. The added touch of snacks in the fridge definitely put a smile on our faces and we were only too glad to drop our bag and collapse on the huge double bed.

The bathroom was okay but it was in obvious need of refresh; the silicone around the bath needed re-doing and the bath itself was showing some wear and tear.

All-in-all it was a really nice room. I’ve definitely stayed in worse. For the price we paid, it was pretty good value for money but just needed touching up in places. Considering it’s a sought after wedding venue, I wouldn’t be surprised if a refurbishment is on the cards in the next few years.

The facilities

The hotel offered free parking and considering it’s location, this was no surprise. There was more than enough space for all the guests – even with a Saturday wedding we were never wanting for a car space.

It had it’s own restaurant with a good looking menu, albeit slightly pricey for us, and a lounge/bar area with a TV screen where we spent some time watching the football.

All the communal areas were nicely done with loads of cost little spaces for guests to sit and unwind. I loved the comfy seating arrangements they had dotted all over the place that really made you feel like you could take some time out.

The staff

I wouldn’t go so far to say the staff went above and beyond, but they were all pleasant enough. Everyone was pretty friendly and the service they offered was good, nothing outstanding but then we didn’t have any particular requirements.

The spa

This was probably by far my favourite part of the hotel and I could have easily spent all weekend here. With more comfy seating areas, cut little tables and a coffee bar, this was a great space.

I actually booked myself in for a facial which was just what I needed. The atmosphere in the spa treatment rooms was instantly relaxing and you could just feel all your troubles melt away. The beautician who did my facial was nice and calm and it was the fastest 25 minutes I’ve ever lived through.

We did also get the opportunity to try out the pool which was well maintained and the perfect size for the hotel. They had sauna and steam rooms and an outdoor hot tub too, although it was a little too cold for me to brave the outdoors.

Price

Overall, the cost for the hotel was pretty good. It averaged about £45pppn which isn’t too shabby.

The drinks at the bar were a little on the expensive side considering the location but then at the end of the day, it is still a hotel.

My spa treatment was a bargain (£22.50 for a 25-minute facial) and I think there was a discount in there because we were staying at the hotel (normally £30).

Would I recommend?

Yes. We’d definitely stay again next time we’re up that way. I don’t know if I’d go specifically to visit the hotel, but it was perfect for our needs and the added bonus of a spa and pool really made it worthwhile. Hopefully they have plans in the work to update some of their areas and then I think they’ll be the ideal staycation.

  • What will the future bring?
—
Technically all future plans are on hold. I’m sure you’re in the same boat. It’s hard to factor in what might happen in a month or two months’ time so we’ve hit pause for the time being.
—
But that doesn’t mean we’re aren’t still planning for the future. We’ve got adventures lined up and big dreams, it’s just a case of waiting for when we can unpause.
—
For the moment, I’ll make do with remembering and planning and looking to the future and feeling hopeful ❤️

  • How are you feeling today?
—
While we’re all standing strong together 💪 it’s okay to also have a wobble. To feel overwhelmed and helpless. But it’s important to look to the future.
—
It’s so nice to see the weather perking up a bit (even if we can’t quite enjoy it as we would like 🙄). Hopefully this is all over in time for our unpredictable summer season so we can enjoy a drink or two down the local. I did, however, get our garden furniture out 🙌 so I feel like that is a definite step in the right direction.

  • That’s it, the UK is officially in lockdown...
—
And I think a lot of us are going to be feeling pretty blue today.
—
But life goes on, we adapt, we work together and we lift each other up.
—
Normality will resume eventually, so for the moment it’s a case of living in the moment and taking each day as it comes.
—
Tell me where you are and what lockdown looks like there 👇
  • Now the restaurants are closed and the supermarkets are practically empty, my breakfast is limited to knock-off cookie crisps and toast. Here’s to dreaming of fat American pancakes from Ellen’s Stardust Diner 🤤😍😂
—
Anyone else getting worryingly low on essentials like teabags 🙋‍♀️
—
I’ll probably lay be venturing out today to a) get some fresh air and b) find supplies. Wish me luck 🤞 —
PHOTO: Ellen’s Stardust Diner is a MUST-VISIT NYC destination. The servers are all Broadway stars waiting for their next show so you have endless love entertainment while you eat. And the food is A-M-A-Z-I-N-G. Top tip: Sunday AM is pretty quiet so you don’t have to queue as long. We waited for about 20 minutes but the queue can be up to 2 hours (in winter) 🙊

  • The future is looking a little bleak at the moment. —
I’m permanently working from home for the foreseeable.
—
Asda looks like it’s never going to restock its shelves.
—
People are ignoring public health advice and going about as they would normally.
—
Panic buying and hoarding supplies doesn’t seem to have slowed any.
—
We’re starting to run low on stuff in our house but there’s literally nothing we can do cause the supermarket shelves are empty, and I don’t just mean the essentials. They are all empty.
—
So now what?
—
I’m going to call, text and FaceTime everyone I know, all the time. I’m going to reach out to those that I know get lonely, and those who need a bit of human interaction during the day.
—
So I’m here if you need me 👋 just drop me a message if you fancy a chat ❤️
—
And I’m going to post stuff on here as I would normally. Just because the world is on pause doesn’t mean we can’t still live our lives. I’m still dreaming of travel, looking forward to when borders reopen and reminiscing of past trips.

Considering she means freedom, I thought Lady Liberty was an apt symbol to share right now 💪
—
Tell me, how are you doing right now? —

  • Eek, it’s begun. And it probably won’t be long until we’re on full lockdown.
—
I’m hoping the crisis passes quickly and normality can resume. My heart goes out to all the small businesses across the country that are going to be impacted. Especially those that can’t rely on digital orders to keep them going.
—
A lot of people are pledging to continue to share travel content to help inspire us and provide some form of escapism. Travel might not be on the cards for the near future, but it will be all the sweeter when our borders reopen.
—
Today’s photo is less about travel and more about my other love: books 📚 —
If anyone wants any recommendations, let me know. I’m going to be sharing some of my favourite reads in my stories throughout the day if you want some inspiration. I’m going to stick to a more lighthearted theme to keep the good vibes going.
