“Excellent staff”
Reviewed July 16, 2014

Radissons are always well appointed, so you know you will have a comfortable stay. The difference here was the staff, much better than the usual robotic chain hotel employees. They showed personality and a human side while paying attention to detail making our overnight stay really enjoyable.

Hi Kevin

Many thanks for the great review and your kind comments about the team. It may sound really simple but we do try to recruit people who will be nice to our guests and who will bring their personality to work with them, it's good to know they are doing a good job.

Warm regards

Daniel

We stayed here for 4 days in June to attend the Download Festival. We love the music but enjoy our comfort and this was certainly available at the Radisson Blu. The spacious rooms have everything you need and the beds are so comfortable. The staff are so friendly and helpful. The food is also great and I loved the individually cooked omelettes at breakfast. The shuttle bus to get us to and from the festival helped hugely. Already booked again for next year.

We stayed here after a 6 night break to Ibiza, having paid to leave to car whilst away.
We got back and checked in and I have to say that this hotel has to be the best airport hotel that I've ever stayed in! All or 99 pounds!! We were extremely impressed by the staff, especially on reception and in the restaurant. Excellent 5 star service with a smile at all times. The hotel is fairly new, and it shows. Decor is amazing, and rooms are a very good size and well furnished. Big flat screen tv. Everything you need and more. Shuttle bus takes just 5 mins to the airport by arrangement at the desk. This stay will now sway us towards flying out from east midlands in future, even though it is not our local airport! Special thanks to Sue... Magnificent customer service. Will def return soon!

Room Tip: All good.... Some with views out to runway .. However, no noise though

We stayed in June 2014 for one night before we flew out on our honeymoon. The booking was a gift and we were made to feel really special from the moment we arrived. The room itself was fantastic - ultra-modern, large and beautifully furnished. We ate in the restaurant and the food and service were both exceptional.

The staff were also great from the receptionist when we arrived, through the restaurant staff right to the driver who took us to the airport the next morning.

100% recommended.

This was our 3rd or 4th time here, this time for a romantic getaway. Yet again I can say, this is by far the best hotel in the area. Attention from staff, quality and cleanliness of rooms, breakfast...

Arrived 24 June for 1 night with airport parking for 11 nights. Requested a runway room and we got one got us more excited. The staff were very nice and helpful when needed the food was fantastic especially the breakfast we got a glass of champagne with it as it was my partners birthday.
We had a relaxing morning before flying after lunch. On return I telephoned hotel on the courtesy phone at the airport as told to get picked up we were in a taxi within minutes and back to hotel to collect the car.
I would highly recommend this hotel to stay and park it's a great way to start your holiday I will do this everytime now. I would like to say a massive thank you to all the staff for making our holiday get off to an amazing start. See you again
