“Decent Hotel but Pricey”
Reviewed September 8, 2013 via mobile

We stayed here prior to flying from East Midlands Airport.
The cost of room together with 13 nights parking was excellent value. And the hotel itself couldn't really be faulted, in addition to good standard and clean rooms there is also a swimming pool, gym, sauna and spa.
The only downside was the cost of food and drink at the hotel - it is very expensive for what you receive.

I would use this hotel again? Yes. But I'd eat before arriving and give the bar a miss.

As a stopover hotel, if this area is on your route, you cannot do much better. Rooms are clean and comfortable, although window latch in my room was broken, meaning the window could not be closed overnight. Food OK, not that cheap, but certainly tasty enough. Breakfast is buffet style and very good indeed

Have stayed here on a lot of occasions. Hotel is well located next to M1 motorway and is well insulated from any road noise. Rooms are of a good standard, particularly the deluxe plus rooms and always manage to get a good nights sleep here. Have not had breakfast here but the evening bar food is of a great quality although a little on the expensive side. The staff here are exceptional, really friendly and helpful. The hotel also has a pool and a small gym.

Stayed here on 14/08/13 - Park and Fly deal for £80. We had family room - good size for four people - use of pool , and Spa. Nice meal in restaurant in the evening £17 for three courses. The kids thought it was a great place as did we. Shuttle service to and from airport - we were collected at 04.20 outbound and then just made a simple call on our return and were collected within 20 minutes. All staff very helpful and friendly - as you would expect. On our return the bus driver even went into the hotel - and got us car park passes - so we could exit without having to queue at reception. Would definitely use them again - as long as they keep the price down!!

Stayed several times. Handy location on the M1 and the airport for business travel. Good value room rate but expensive meals (there is nowhere else to go close by.)
Large bar, large bed, restaurant, pool and gym... everything I need for a one night stopover.

Arrived at the Hotel for our Park and Fly as flying from East Midlands Airport the following morning.

Family Club Room - Very nice room with nibbles/wine etc.

Restaurant: We ate here and the food was very good. Staff were very good and made our children (7 & 4 yrs) feel very welcome.

Fly and Park was excellent, a private taxi collected us at 5am and took us to the airport. Upon our return the driver was awaiting our arrival. Taken back to the hotel where we were dropped right by our car.

Excellent service all round and will use again in the future.

This is great value for money and the Hilton East Midlands is our favourite of the hotels available as part of the Stay Play Explore deal. Breakfast was particularly good with the chef making himself available for making pancakes, omelettes, etc.
