“Could not fault this hotel if I tried!”
Reviewed February 25, 2013 via mobile

We stayed in this hotel for several nights and would have no doubts in returning.
From the moment we arrived we felt completely relaxed, the rooms are beautiful and modern, spa/swimming pool is fantastic. Food is gorgeous (somethings are pricy), easy to over indulge! Very spacious and extremely clean, staff seem genuinely happy to help and are well presented. Cant wait to find an excuse to come again!

This is a lovely new hotel, very nicely decorated. The reception staff are very friendly and helpful. The food in the restaurant was good. Would definitely stay here again. Good, quick transfer to and from the airport and we were able to leave our car in the car park for the week. The grab and go breakfast was a nice surprise too.

We stayed at this hotel for New Years Eve 2012 and it was great. We checked in mid afternoon and used the health suite before dinner. The food was superb as was the service. Entertainment was ok and we are considering going again next year.

Overall superb experience from this modern, contemporary but comfortable hotel. We had an upgrade on the room and I loved how the hotel went for the little extra touches for guests - a hand written card in the room with wine, fruit, robes, slippers and your own coffee machine provided. In the evening we ate in the bar area, decor is very cool interiors, comfortable and welcoming. Very good service from the barman on recommending wines - as were all the staff. Very comfy bed and pillows - very good night sleep. Breakfast was good. Lovely restaurant. Without hesitation I would return.
If you have an up and coming holiday from East Midlands airport and need a place to stay the night before - this would make an excellent start to your trip.

What a brilliant hotel! It was really nice! I didn't think it would be anyway near so good! It was clean, modern and had a touch of luxury as well. I got us a business class room (purely by accident) and it was lovely, we got complimentary films, breakfast in bed, room service. I couldn't have asked for more!

Room Tip: Go for business class! We were in room 215, and it was LOVELY!
