Premier Inn East Midlands Airport Hotel
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed July 4, 2013

The public areas are just starting to need some maintenance. The room was airless, and the window so restricted it provided no ventillation. The clothes hanging area is not designed to accommodate dresses as there is a rather pointless shelf fitted below the hanging rail. Otherwise, it was the normal well thought out room.

After a week of Premier Inn living, combined with eating at Beefeaters and accompanying catering facilties. East Midlands did a good job, located near the Airport noise was not undue, rooms and building and fairly modern, Staff well trained and helpful....Much better than Manchester Airport without a doubt!

This was clean and simple, just as you expect.

Booked it in advance so the price was good and it's only a fifteen minute walk to the airport.

The room was ok, shower could do with a new shower curtain but the bed was clean and we actually got a good sleep. Nice easy way to catch an early flight.

Stayed at this hotel the flight before our flight. Quick and efficient check in. We asked for a room close to the lift and this had been allocated to us. We had lunch in the hotel when we arrived and shared one of their platters which was superb. Unfortunately our evening meal was not to the same standard. Breakfast was the normal good premier breakfast. We had a superb nights sleep, leisurely breakfast and a taxi to the airport. We would certainly stay again when we fly out of East Midlands next time.

Stayed here with seven friends for the world super bike races in may ,the hotel is a 5min taxi ride so quite handy.On arrival left bags behind reception and headed for the track which was a ten minute taxi journey ,got a eight seater and it worked out about £2.50 each spot on.Got back after super pole and had a shower and was gagging for a pint so we all met in the bar which is open plan and sort of flows into the dining area.We decided to eat in the restaurant and i ordered the steak with chicken breast on top and prawns on top of that a sort of turf and surf without the fish lol.Well we waited for our dinners to arrive my mate having ordered the mixed grill and his son the chicken,WHAT a dissapointment the 8oz rump steak was about 3ozs and the chicken was beaten flat and char grilled as everything seems to be and was like rubber ,the nicest thing was the 3 prawns in tempura batter.My other 2 dining companions also complained about theres and to be honest for £15.50 I EXPECTED AN AWFUL LOT BETTER.The manageress was taken back when i complained to her and got very stroppy but she knocked 25% of the final bill which was something i suppose but we didnt eat there the next night.The problem being there is no where within walking distance to eat so you like it or lump it or get a taxi into castle donington but as it was a bank holiday weekend everywhere was booked up and we were fed up eating chips .

Room Tip: This is a very good hotel ,rooms great ,beds very comfortable only let down by its restaurant.We wer...

As with all Premier Inns we've stayed in this was of an excellent standard. Rooms furnished well and clean and comfortable. Bar area nice and food good. Drinks not over priced. Ideal for an overnight stay when you have a flight the next day as the hotel is situated minutes away from the airport and its car parks. Whenever we've stayed here the rooms have always been available at a reasonable price too.
