Been here a few times for various music events. Really good sound. Parking is a bit of a pain as there is no dedicated parking (I think) so you have to use the multi storey car parks which are quite expensive and get very busy, meaning it does take a while to get out of the centre of Nottingham. I... More

Before the year 2000, Nottingham had no large venue to see performances of great artists. Since 2000, Nottingham has the Ice Arena. I have been to many events and experienced a great time. The Arena has also got a public skating rink and a Panthers main ice rink (that is covered during non-ice events.

Been here twice, once to see Russell Howard and then November 2016 to see Bastille. The place is decent. But knocked off a star because it doesn't haven't a car park and to see Bastille we drove up and had to pay £18 for the NCP or whatever car park nearby. Ridiculous and slightly ruined the mood at the end... More

Good venue, very easy to find. Located in the centre of Nottingham. Access no problem and in the venue it's self there were food outlets and bars which made for a very enjoyable experience. Never been to the venue before but in conjunction with review of Premier Inn also posted today I would happily go back for a weekend to... More

Went to watch ice hockey, had a suite and ordered food. Thought a snack of nachos would go down well with a drink - not sure what it wad cooked in or when. Tasteless, soggy and cold. My partner had a burger a chips...again cold. Avoid eating at this venue, a rip off.

I like this venue and have been a few times now seen some great bands there. Slipknot, Placebo and last night Korn. Well organised and easy to get too. My only complaint is the sound is never that good in there, always seems to get a bit lost. Maybe its time to invest in some new equipment.

The motorpoint arena in Nottingham is a nice arena within close walking distance to the centre of Nottingham. Staff were very friendly and there are plenty of toilets available to use.

Visit here quite often as a travelling ice hockey fan. This is a large venue well located in the City Centre. It is a 5 minute walk from the tram system. Car parking can be difficult and expensive. All seats in the arena have a good view of the rink, staff are pleasant and helpful, the only negative is that... More
