We stayed overnight at Hilton East Midland Airport. We got a great deal though Holiday Extras. Room only and a week’s parking for about £65. The deal included transfers to and from the airport. The transfers were quick and the drivers at both ends were good humoured and friendly. In fact all of the staff at the hotel was very friendly.
The room was typical Hilton. We heard no noise either from other guests or aircraft. There was a £12pp option for dinner. I didn’t expect much for that price, but the meal was very, very good with a good choice of plonk. The gym and pool looked good and was well used (by others!)
The hotel was little quiet on a Friday night as the weekday business travellers had departed and the weekend revellers and itinerants like us were just arriving.
At East Midlands Airport there were no queues at security. However, the holiday season hadn’t really yet started in earnest.
Irritatingly the cheapskates at the airport have a vending machine at security, selling the wee plastic bags for carry on toiletries rather than hand them out. These bags cost ONE PENNY to buy in bulk. I wouldn’t mind donating to a charity box next to a pile poly bags, but to charge a quid for a couple of bags really is low, especially when you have zero choice.
