For us we checked in and gave... More

The hotel has all the amenities as you would expect from a top class hotel and the staff are extremely helpfull. We had a meal in the bar restaurant area and it was a... More

I stayed here on business in October 2014 and it was very disappointing. All the rooms are off one long corridor which has a very worn carpet with no underlay. Combined with with very thin walls and cheap wooden doors, every single footstep of every guest who walks up and down the corridor can be heard in the rooms. You... More

I last stayed here 12 months ago and endured a musty smelling room with a temperamental telly - this year I was given a room that on the face of it had been recently decorated - spotlessly clean and everything you could want from an airport hotel for a one night stay. My only niggles were a couple of tiny... More

The hotel is excellent with efficient, a tad abrasive, staff. The room we were allocated was also excellent. The incorrect part of their advertisements is the vicinity to the airport. I am 6 ft tall and have a decent stride. It took me ten minutes to walk to the arrivals part, the departures/check ins are another 5-7 minute walk after... More

Had a deal with car park and 3 course meal included which was really good value. The room was ok the food was excellent. Check in and out was faultless. I would stay here again before an early flight as the walk to the airport is quick and hassle free.

Stayed here for one night prior to flying out from East Midlands airport as we had hotel and car parking combined. Not a great start with the car park as it was full when we arrived and we ended up parked on the grass behind the hotel. Check-in staff seemed fine with it when I told them so it must... More

we stayed for a night before a very early flight the following morning. Very comfortable room, great bed, bathroom, toiletries and helpful staff. Prompt wake up call, free wifi, decent restaurant on site There is no lift here, so bear this in mind if you are travelling with heavy bags and have to haul them up flights of stairs. Porters...

The food and drink was reasonably priced, breakfast was available from the early hours. The hotel overall was good for the purpose only downside is the really creaky floor out in the main corridor when anybody walked up and down it was quite noisy and kept me awake. But the staff were great and welcoming
