We stayed at the Holiday Inn Express as part of a car parking package and had an enjoyable stay.
The hotel is easy to find and we were promptly checked in. Our room was of an average size and reasonably clean. The sofa bed was made up too.
We asked the receptionist to recommend any good eateries / pubs and was given a leaflet with directions to The Otter In Kegworth.
On our return, we fancied a drink in the blazing sun and we were told that there was an outside area. It was simply some worn out metal chairs and wonky tables overlooking the Premier Inn hotel car park. A bit of a shame and a contrast to the inside. Drinks are expensive too. 2 ciders, 1 pint of lager and 2 kids drinks nearly £25.
After an OK nights sleep, we had breakfast which was quite good with BBC News on screens in the restaurant.
Check out was simple and within 5 minutes we reached the airport.
Overall, a basic yet decent hotel with no noise from the nearby runway a bonus.
