If you need accommodation overnight, there are some cheap B&Bs in Beeston, reasonably near to Beeston station and the place where I am planning to go for dinner. These are the Andrews hotel and the Hylands hotel; you can find many options on the tourist information site at http://www.visitnottingham.com/, although it doesn’t bring up the hotel nearest to campus, which is the Toby Carvery:

http://www.innkeeperslodge.com/lodgedetail.asp?lid=45 (a bit more expensive at £60 per night).

The university also has a hotel reservation service, which might be an easier way of doing it. Advisors provide up-to-the-minute information and will match a hotel to your particular requirements, taking care of all the administration for you. You will also benefit from pre-negotiated preferential rates with major city hotels providing you with substantial savings.

For further details please contact one of the Hotel Reservation Service advisers on:
