Reasonable prices for the accommodation offered. Car park has security camera's. Food is offered in the service station. We opted to walk to the local village where there were numerous places to eat and drink.

This is a straight forward motel, but at £30 per room per night, you could accommodate a family of four in the room its incredibly cheap. The rooms are big, spacious have an en-suite bathroom colour tv reading desk etc. The staff are friendly and very helpful And it has a bar and restaurant/cafe. Happy Days!

This hotel is in a poor location for the traveller coming into East Midlands Airport and requiring a taxi, due to the roadway network of dual carriageways,and the necessity to ''double back''. This makes journey's twice a long and equally expensive. The hotel and rooms are very clean, and the staff extra friendly and helpful. good choice of continental breakfast.... More

Stayed here for 1 night before download festival in order to save traveling down on the same day. Ideal location only 15 minutes drive away. Only downside of visit is we were given a smoking room despite not requesting one. These rooms have a strong stench of smoke that can be very off putting to a none smoker.

We used the Hotel for our base for the Download Festival at Donington Park as was very convenient to get to and back from the Festival. Found the Hotel clean and all the staff were very friendly and helpful. All the facilities were sufficent. Which made our stay pleasent.

Convenient for us but that was all. Would only recommend if you were passing And needed a room. Staff were pleasant but unconcerned if your needs were Satisfied or not. Food in adjoining kitchen was terrible, half the items on poor Menu selection were unavailable and the meal we had was rubbish. Staff at check in (one) was trying to... More

Nice hotel but the windows that face the front and A50 NEED upgrading, the noise at 4am in the morning was terrible, I might as well had a bed in the central reservation of the A50 and that was with the windows shut. The heating was a little high so you had to open the windows before trying to sleep... More

Not at East Midlands Airport as suggest, on A50 just before A6 Derby turn off. Noise even at the rear of the hotel is very bad, cannot open window because of road noise, and from the room upstairs no sound reduction between the floors. Result no sleep for two nights.
