The restaurant part of this seemed a bit expensive and lacking in choice so we did not eat there but a stay for four adults was good. The rooms were clean and comfortable (I think the beds are memory foam mattresses) and when I had a noise issue with my room it was changed immediately and help offered to move...

Visited 281 last night with our friends to celebrate Christmas - we have eaten at 281 many times in the past - we ate from the Christmas menu and the food was absolutely delicious. Service as always from the staff was excellent. Always a friendly place to visit and always enjoyable.

Attended here for some pre meal drinks, the location is ideal straight off the main Nottingham Road in Mansfield - the atmosphere is also nice not hustle and bustle and nice to have a quiet drink. Would return and maybe try the food menu next time.

“The A60 is a busy road so probably best to ask for a room facing to the side of the hotel (like mine) or the back for a quieter time.”
