Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Big Sister Grimm great room, and excellent service, BUT
My first overseas holiday for 10 years or so, so I agree that I am not your average customer.
I booked in for an overnight stay prior to flying out the next day, and was extremely happy with the booking service, the check in and the room.
My only serious comment, which I feel you should definately consider, is that someone NOT on business and booking into your hotel, is on a budget, and possibly a tight one, having saved up to go away.
Like me! So the prices on the menu for dinner came as a big shock. I know the approx costs of, say Chilli, pasta dishes, and the old home standbys, and although the cooking which was good, I do question the prices charged. Add a vegetarian section to your menu to disguise the fact that such dishes are budget ones. Vegetable , salads, beans and pulses are cheap to cook but can be very tasty and healthy. The latter 2 also freeze well! Get this right

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Whistleblower Great location & great staff / atmosphere
Great location close to M1 / A50 / A42 & East Mids Airport. Staff really nice and welcoming; everything was no problem at all - nice to see a smile on a face even with an after midnight arrival... and on departure! Welcomed as a Platinum member of Rewards Club - thank you. Room very clean and spacious (for a HI Express). Breakfast was OK as always at HI Express; nothing great but OK. Nice to stay here again & will do so next time this way.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 2childrenunder5 Got a Quiet Room
We asked for a quiet room, and Emma arranged for us to stay in the room right at the end of the hotel. We were there for 2 days and didn't hear a sound from other guests at night. Exactly what we wanted, thank you.
Good location for visits to the Midlands, we went to Stoke and Burton to see family and friends.
Booked on a point break. Treated exactly the same as paying guests

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Excellent for airport stay
Situated a mile from airport, bus service outside to take you to airport or taxi £6.00. Very comfortable stay. First class staff, we stayed on Xmas Eve for one night and they couldn't do enough for us.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by maz16 Very pleasant stay, good value
Staff excellent, cheerful even when busy.
One guy was trying to take bar/meal orders and cover the front desk as well.. He did it well but could have done with some assistance.
