As we had late evening flights from East Midlands Airport, we decided that we needed to stay in a hotel close to the airport. After searching the area, I emailed the hotel to see if they did a park and fly option which they emailed to say they did, and rang me for my card details for the reservation.
We parked the car there for 4 nights and paid for a double room for one night on our return. The staff were very helpful and the hotel easy to find. They gave me details for taxis which was about £10 to the airport. There was no problems with the car being parked there.
The hotel itself is in need of updating, as the furniture and wallpaper which appears to have been painted over and over seems to have been there for many years. The hotel itself smelt very musty, so had to open the windows to try and let the smell out. However, the room was large with a large en-suite, and large bed. The bar was suitable downstairs, and breakfast was included although it was not the best breakfast I have had, it was presented well.
Overall if your after somewhere to rest your head for the night, after or before a flight from EMA and you are not too fussy, then this is reasonable priced with very friendly and helpful staff, just beware of the musty smell.
