Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bottero1 Even better than usual
My daughter and I stayed at this hotel because we always try to stay at Holiday Inns, as they are such good value for money and extremely comfortable. We have stayed in a number of Holiday Inn hotels across the UK and have always had a great stay. However, this hotel was even better than usual. The staff were lovely, the room was spotless (as usual) and the breakfast was great. There were a few more items to choose from and everything was well cooked and well presented. I would recommend this hotel every time.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Howard69 evening meal
We were disappointed with the evening meal this was of poor quality considering the price. The meals were obviously already prepared & just microwaved up, the presentation poor & sloppy, we were quite hungry & not wishing to make a scene we ate what was edible & left for the room & a very good nights sleep.
We would use this hotel again for the convenience of nearness to the airport, comfort etc. of the room but will not have a meal unless the quality is improved. The hotel we recommend the food we don`t.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by SarahZB Disappointing Stay
We travelled with our 3 year old and obviously with it being november she was in need of a comfortable warm room. However the room we were allocated had no heating. My husband rang reception after we had been in the room about 40 minds and realised we couldn't get it working. We were told it takes a while and to call back if it didn't come on later. After another half hour my husband rang again and someone from reception came up. He acknowledged it wasn't working and said he would bring a fan heater which we had already mentioned we didn't want due to our toddler having a bad chest. He said he was going to have a word with someone and would call us back. After a further half hour and no call back yet again my husband got in touch with the same man on reception. He said he would change our room if it still wasn't working and would call us back when he had got us a room. Another 45 mins and another phone call we eventually got moved. This wasted our evening and left a bitter taste about the hotel.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Shellshock68 Excellent stay
I stayed at Holiday Inn Express at East Midlands airport as I was attending the British GT sportscar championship weekend at Donington Park circuit. The hotel had a great location for me as the airport shuttle bus service that passes Donington Park has a bus stop situated right outside of the hotel so it was very easy for someone like myself who didn't have access to a car that weekend to get to and from the circuit.
I dined in the restaurant that night and really enjoyed my meal, the free wifi in my room was a bonus, and I had a good nights sleep (no airport noise from planes, etc#.
The breakfast the next morning was self service and of decent quality #you could have as much or as little as you liked), although obviously you don't get the full range of hot items as you would at a normal Holiday Inn.
I hope to be staying at this hotel again when I attend the same event next year

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Laalcubby Great service at a very reasonable price
We experienced excellent, friendly service for a great price. This was the first time we stayed at a Holiday Inn Express having always stayed at Holiday Inn, but the quality of service & comfort is excellent, in fact we've said we'd look at H I Express hotels more often & save some money at the same time.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Chiara1421 We'll definitely come back
The only negative about our visit was the time for breakfast. 0930 is a very early time to finish service - appreciate that this is linked to early flights -not everyone who stays is flying out. We missed breakfast and had to go to elsewhere.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by nuekibse Useful hotel near the airport
Everything was perfect and we will certainly stay there again when we have to travel through East Midlands airport. We commended it highly since it meets our expectations of professional staff, cleanliness, comfort and price.
