Great hotel for the money. Close to the airport, staff are great, breakfast is good, free wifi, rooms are great. Short cab ride to Kegworth if you fancy a meal out the night before you travel, but if you'd rather eat at the hotel they have a short menu you can order from (pizzas,sandwiches,lovely chunky chips,and more). Great place thank... More

Booked this hotel as a jet plus. Very good offer/parking and stay over on late night return flight). We arrived about 1am, check-in was swift and the lady on reception was very welcoming and friendly. Our room was equally as welcoming with a gorgeous comfy bed and pillows that put you straight to sleep! The drink facility in the room... More

To be honest I stayed here only couple of hours for overnight as my flight departed very early morning. Check in was rather long as they couldn't find my reservation. Breakfast and wifi included for a good value

This was a nice hotel to get a good night sleep before we had to catch our very early flight. The stuff was very friendly and helpful, the room wasn't special but great to get some rest, normal and clean equipped with two kind of pillows and even with free coffee and tea amenities. Continental breakfast is available from 4am,... More

Stayed here on our way out and back from holiday. The staff were very friendly and helpful, especially the lady on reception on our way back. Got there very late/early, after 1am, and she was bright and bubbly and provided us with extra tea and coffee as we stated we had missed this while away. The breakfast in the morning... More

What a bargain! One night stay before our flight with free WiFi and breakfast included, with a morning newspaper thrown in as well, all at an amazingly low price. The only reason I haven't rated the hotel as a 5 is because the bar was over priced. The quality of our room was spot on as well. Well worthy of... More

Not a lot to say about this hotel, it was a basic hotel close to the airport. The room was clean and all the staff were friendly. Did not get to eat here as we had to leave too early. Price was good when booked through Booking.com. Will stay here again when we fly from East Midlands Airport.

On arrival we were able to check in which was quick and easy. The room we were given was a twin bed room slightly smaller than I had expected but enough room for myself and my brother.
