I visited the Holiday inn Express prior to my holiday to Crete. I was impressed by the efficient check in. The reception staff were friendly. The room was very pleasant and more than adequate for an overnight stay. There was an added bonus with breakfast which was continental plus a selection of hot food. I had booked airport parking and... More

Excellent and courteous service. Lovely spacious, clean room. Decent menu in their comfy restaurant . The cooked breakfast buffet was delicious. First rate establishment, no argument. We will be back when we fly again from East Midlands, Oct/Nov time. :-)

Stayed last three nights, first okay, late night watching the election results - next night the boiler (directly beneath room 101) kept me awake all night. Moved to room 111, helpful staff. Room okay but connecting door to noisy neighbours, walls too thin. Breakfast very mediocre, no bacon, tomatoes, or mushrooms. The sausages were cheap and it wasn't worth staying... More

Stayed here whilst working at Ratcliffe power station. Room was clean and comfortable and the staff were very friendly and helpful. Back again next week. Breakfast and meals are reasonable, a bit cheeky charging 4 quid a night for parking however. Perfectly positioned for East Midlands airport and despite its proximity I didn't hear any landing or taking off overnight.

Despite being the near airport, the rooms are very quiet and not affected by aircraft noise. The beds are very comfortable, the rooms are of an ample size, and the shower in the bathroom is great! The breakfast is simple, but certainly ample, especially because it's included in the room rate! The hot breakfast is eggs, beans and sausage. The... More

Our second stay at this hotel, and to be honest it is because the one we usually stay in was either fully booked, or could not be bothered to take our booking. Usual Holiday Inn policy for a carers room. The wet room is good, but the chair attached to the wall could do with being a little bigger. I... More

Stayed here for 2 nights, staff were friendly and helpful. The hotel is situated close to the motorway for easy access to surrounding area. Rooms were well furnished, clean and cosy. Despite its proximity to the airport there was very little noise. This HI express does evening food, a reasonable bar food selection. The free breakfast is not bad although... More

Stayed here on a stay and park deal when flying from the airport. Very well organised with taxi transfers. Very easy with no fuss and the staff guided us through the process. Staff, as always, excellent, room, as always, fine and very good value. Will definitely do this the next time we fly from East Midlands airport.
