I have only one complaint about this hotel, the bathroom smelled like it had been used to store wet towels for several weeks. Apart from that I couldn't fault it. The place was clean and looked presentable, if a little dated in places. There was plenty of storage space and a large wardrobe, tea and coffee facilities in the room,... More

We stayed here for a night before and early morning flight from East Mids, and included parking for our holiday for 2 weeks. This hotel is so convenient for departures as it was about a 10min stroll in the morning. The reception team were helpful at check-in, and the parking was easy. We had a meal in the restuarant in...

Booked the hotel for the week's parking and paid extra for the breakfast. Completely unimpressed with the dated interior and the room itself which had a fold down bed that was too short with an uncomfortable sloping headrest that had sharp edges. The melamine wrapping had come away revealing the chipboard underneath. Bathroom had missing and tired grout and was... More

Always book here before flying out from East Midlands airport. Great comfy rooms that are very quiet, giving a really good nights sleep. Ate in the restaurant too and the food was great, tasty, well cooked and beautifully presented.

Had a Xmas party there and have to say the food and service was excellent but the hotel itself was nothing special. The room was a bit tired and disappointing. Didn't get chance to use the spa so unable to comment on that. If you need a room before or after flying from\to the airport, nice and convenient and worth... More

Recently we had an overnight deal at the hotel, and were able to leave our car in safety there for two weeks, and that was ideal. The member of staff in reception was very good, and was helpful. Our room was nice, and we had a very comfortable bed. We enjoyed a lovely evening meal there, and the decor was... More
