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

Stayed for one night prior to a flight out of east mids. Nice large room with big tv, sofa and nice size bed. Very clean. Good FREE breakfast in the morning and only cost £28. Bargain. Excellent stay for east mids flights. Pre booked a taxi that was £6 to the airport

When I first started extensive business travelling - early 1980s - I used to try first for a Holiday Inn as their hotels were consistently "much better than average" and, almost as important, I knew where everything was as the rooms were always similar wherever I stayed. This is now replicated by the Holiday Inn Express range of hotels. Absolutely... More

We stayed over for one evening and found the hotel to be in a very handy location and yet nice and quiet with no traffic noise to be heard. We had booked through an online site which somehow had booked us three weeks later rather than our chosen day. We hadn't noticed this but on checking in realised the error.... More

The hotel was really well presented. Clean rooms, nicely arranged bathrooms. The beds were comfortable and up to the usual holiday inn standard. The rooms were a pleasant temperature and had air conditioning. Breakfast was good, lots of choice and well stocked. The staff were really friendly and smiled easily at everyone which can make all the difference. Clean, fresh,... More

Service from staff was second to none. Cleanliness was spot on. Food was good. Find this better than some holiday inns Very close to M1. Breakfast times are really good. 0430 to 0900 Hot buffet from 0630 Worth it for the money
