Travelled with my 6 year old son prior to flying from East Midlands airport on a skiing trip. Great location, just off the M1, despite this the hotel does not suffer from road noise. Got a very good deal via FHR with room and 8 days parking. Very helpful, pleasant and efficient young lady on reception. As our flight was very early, I requested a room close to reception so we could make a swift exit (and not make noise for other guests at 5am!), so she allocated room 101. I've often wondered if one day I'd be sent to room 101! Anyway, it was absolutely fine, clean and well equipped.
Although we didn't have time to use the leisure facilities, it is good to know they are there. The bar was good, again very friendly staff, and despite some previous comments, drinks prices are not unreasonable. One shouldn't expect to pay the same prices in a 4 star hotel that you would pay in a local pub, any more than you can expect to pay the same prices in an airport coffee shop as you would in Tesco. You pay a bit extra for convenience and overheads.
Special mention for the mini bus driver, very cheery man considering it was 5am, exceptionally helpful.
All in all, thoroughly recommended, and well up to Hilton standards.
