Stayed the night before flying on holiday and after trying different hotels in the past at East Midlands Airport can honestly say this is the best one.Spotless room,comfy bed well stocked and not overpriced bar and a decent breakfast.Will make our first choice next time. Oh nearly forgot a great team of staff as well.

Stayed one night to break up our journey to Heathrow. Car parking is 4GBP per night, paid at the hotel not a machine. Friendly check in staff. Room was clean but very small, OK for one night but not recommend for more. Breakfast was standard HIE. Located only a few minutes off the M1, a quieter option than the motorway... More

On arriving late one night last week we were told that the kitchen was going to close soon. While we were checking in the front desk clerk produced a menu and we agreed that we would eat there. He then said he could take our order there and then and it would be ready when we came down from leaving... More

We stayed - me and my two daughters - in a family room at the end of half term, as a base to expore Nottingham area. The hotel is clean and well presented, with very friendly and helpful staff - a credit to the hotel. There is parking on site although you have to pay £4 for the night. I... More

Stayed here whilst on business in the area, arrived about 8pm and checked in pretty quickly, company usually pay in advance however we were told that as they had booked a flexible booking the payment wasn't actually taken so had to pay it on arrival, no big deal but could be for some people. The hotel sell sandwiches, pot noodles,... More

We stayed here for the first on February 13th as we were exhibiting at a 4x4 show nearby the following day. The room itself was lovely & very comfortable. We loved it. The breakfast however was awful! No bacon, lumpy inedible eggs, sausages that were a little bit suspicious, the croissants were so hard I couldn't even break them and... More

We stayed for one night before our early morning flight. Our room was clean, spacious, functional and warm ( once we'd worked the heating out!) We were greeted by friendly staff and we enjoyed a snack in the restaurant. We were leaving at 4:30 am so were thrilled to find that breakfast was included in the price. At that time... More

A late evening check-in followed by an very early morning check-out didn't allow the best view of the hotel. however, our experience was comfortable with attentive staff. The rooms we hired were clean, tidy and functional and were good value for the discounted rate. Only downside was the enforced £4 per night car parking fee, which we couldn't avoid, despite... More

Holiday Inn Express always figure in our plans when we go off for a weekend break. This one is better than some we have stayed at. Staff were very friendly and sociable.
