This is my second review on the same Hotel and I felt I should do so, as a lot of issues addressed in my previous review seem to have improved. In my opinion it remains average but it was very promising to see positive changes. The staff were very courteous and polite. I liked the freshness and cleanliness of all... More

Stayed here 29th July 2014 we were flying out from EMA the next day. The hotel is very clean but I wanted to warn future guests about the bathroom door. This acts as a door to both the WC and shower. If you open the door quickly from the inside whilst exiting its easy to trap your hand between the... More

Expected the bog standard low price airport hotel but were pleasantly surprised. Check-in was efficient and friendly. Entrance area comfortable and welcoming. Room excellent of its type. Bar prices reasonable. Free, good, breakfast. Good location. Highly recommended if you are flying out of East Midlands Airport. We did a 'parking deal' which all went smoothly.

Stayed here for two nights because we were going to an event at Donington Park. The location for the park and for the airport are both excellent - you can walk from the hotel to Donington in 40 mins and to the airport in 15 or 20. The staff were fantastic - very helpful and always had a smile. The... More

We had a great overnight stay at the Holiday Inn Express - East Midlands. All of the staff were professional, friendly and helpful. Bedroom was very clean, comfortable and quiet. Breakfast (buffet style help yourself, hot and cold items) was included in the price and was good, juice was fine, not sure why folks were complaining about it! We took... More

Great TV in the room and room ok but view not up to much considering at a handy spot near airport. Bed was a little uncomfortable compared to say a premier inn but happy with overall stay. £4 for car stop overnight bit harsh as we arranged parking too with deal.we found a lovely little pub a few miles away...

Great staff who dealt with a very rowdy family in the dining area very professionally .Food was lovely and well . I would recommend this hotel as it is ideal for the airport. Be aware that overnight stays do incur a £4 parking charge .

Stayed for 1 night prior to early flight the next morning, Having flown over from Belfast, we were without a car, so got the Skylink Airport Hopper bus from the airport bus station, which dropped us off very close to the hotel for 50p each. We didn't have to wait long as the service is quite frequent, even in the... More

I stayed here for one night whilst on business nearby. The hotel is easy to find, on the main road from the motorway to the airport, and has a large car park reserved solely for guests (£4 per night). Check in was extremely efficient and helpful, and there was a lively atmosphere in the bar from the other customers present,... More
