The station is located on the line first opened by the Ambergate, Nottingham, Boston and Eastern Junction Railway in 1850 and taken over by the Great Northern Railway.
The station buildings were designed by Thomas Chambers Hine.
The station is unstaffed and offers limited facilities other than two shelters, bicycle storage, timetables and modern Help Points. The full range of tickets for travel are purchased from the guard on the train at no extra cost, as there are no retail facilities at this station.
An extra service to Liverpool stops every day, and on Sundays there is an extra service to Norwich.
Bottesford is one of the most used stations on the route with many commuters travelling to and from Nottingham each day.
