Booked an overnight stay at this hotel to attend a race day at Donnington - excellant location!! Check in was pain free and all relevant booking information was correct, ready and waiting - I was recognised as a priority card holder.

Staff were friendly, helpful and courteous... Enjoyed an evening meal and food served was hot, tasty and plentiful... and very quick to arrive after ordering!!

The room was clean, spacious and tidy, and suprisingly quiet given it's location to East Midlands airport....

Breakfast was again plentiful, tasty and hot! All in all - excellent value for money

We booked the Holiday Inn for an overnight stay on 09/10/12, prior to our flight from East Midlands airport.We booked 2 rooms, a family room for myself, my partner and our 6 year old Daughter and a twin room for our older 2 children (18 & 23 ).We paid £139 for both rooms, 15 days parking, breakfast and transfers to and from the airport.Check in was quick, and we were allocated inter-connecting rooms...which was perfect!. Rooms perfectly adequate and very clean.Plenty of choice for breakfast...perfect before a flight!
Previously stayed at the Thistle which is only a few minutes nearer to the airport...however with a price tag of £300 for 2 rooms without the breakfast or transfer...we chose The Holiday Inn.
All in all, an excellent hotel, with excellent service and excellent value for money!

I have no bad word to say about the hotel, the staff were friendly, the breakfast was absolutely amazing- just enough to set you up for the day. The room was lovely and clean, some people moaned about the size of the bed however we found it to be a normal size double. The tv was a good size too! To say we were right next to the airport i could only hear the planes passing if i strained to hear them. One tiny thing, my boyfriend would have loved a bath but apart from that the stay was great. We'd definitely go back!

Dear L_Clark46
Thank you for your great review - and for confirming our bed size! I am pleased that you enjoyed your stay - sorry about the lack of a bath - all Holiday Inn Express hotels have power showers as standard but I am pleased that this will not deter you from staying again.

See you soon

Excellent customer service on check in/out, very pleasent and polite staff, nothing was too much trouble and all my whims catered for, evening meals were piping hot and well presented, breakfast buffet exceeded my expecations, it was unfortunate i was not allowed to go back for second helpings, room was spotless and was impressed with how quiet it is considering its proximity to the airport, the bed was just the most comfortable i have slept in away from home.
