Room great, clean and tidy all you need for a overnight stop. Receptionist Charlotte is lovely and helpful, and Darren the manager what a great guy. Definately will stop again when travelling from east Midlands airport. Food was very nice to.

room was basic but just what we needed a comfy bed and a hot shower before our early morning flight. Food on the other hand wasn't great for the price paid. Id recommend eating before coming to the hotel. Nothing was fresh tasted all microwaved. Staff was ok not overly friendly. I would use again for an early morning flight... More

We had a late arrival at east midlands airport and decided to stay the night here. It is a 2 minute taxi ride away or a 10 minute walk. Booked direct with them last month, they had all the information for our arrival and did not require anything else. Reception was very informative and friendly. Breakfast the next morning was...

If travelling from East Midlands Airport, the package that they have that includes car parking is hard to beat especially if you have an early morning flight. This includes a breakfast that is available from very early in the morning. The rooms are simple and comfortable. Only thing to watch for though is that they have a £4 extra charge... More

My wife and me stayed at the hotel on Sat' 29th November upon returning from holiday. We were greeted as on a previous occasion by Tara and her colleague and all was well; everything that [late] evening was faultless as indeed was the accommodation. Only when we ventured out for breakfast did things go downhill rapidly which, frankly, is not... More

As soon as we walked into this hotel we were made welcome by friendly helpful staff. We stayed here as it was great for our Alton Towers trip. This hotel has great pool, sauna and gym. The restaurant has great menu for kids. Our family room was clean spacious and very comfortable. I would recommend this hotel to all families.
