Nice room , good staff, and a grand sleep.We were pleasantly suprised that there was no sound of the airport and it was really a very quiet hotel. Did not mind paying for the parking as the price was alright alround.

This is a wonderful hotel with great facilities. It was close to other restaurants for an evening meal and close to Donington Race Circuit that held Japfest2. In a way we were lucky to get a room that viewed the car park so my partner could watch all the nice cars coming and going! Very clean room and bathroom that was welcoming and comfortable. Plus it was amazing to have air conditioning, as its a bit of a luxury for us! Breakfast was laid out nicely and there was plenty to choose from. My only complaint was there was no bacon or choice of eggs with the cooked breakfast, but apart from that it was wonderful and would still come again!

Generally a very pleasant evening and stay.
Room clean as I would expect.
As a platinum member I obviously stay in H I's most weeks and now and again I have stayed in ones adjacent to airports and I did detect the typical airport lack of atmosphere. I know we all get a bit sick of the tele now and again but I almost asked for it to be switched on.
I did not have a big three course meal but I do have a pet hate where meals are concerned - if the menu states mushrooms I expect them in multiples. Or should I say more than one mushroom. Maybe I would have forgiven a big mushroom but alas I got only one of the small variety. It's a pity because I rather like mushrooms.
The breakfast was as per normal where mushrooms are off the menu so therefore I was not disappointed and all's well that ends well..

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by oldnick Well appointed but hard to sleep
A very good Hotel in comparison with other Holiday Inns. However being an airport Hotel nights were disturbed by banging doors in the middle of the night. This could be easily solved with some draught excluder!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by dmdzp Comfortable Room , Excellent Staff
My wife and I stayed at the Holiday Inn Express for three night June 2013, we found the check in to be fast and professional, as we were attending the Download Festival outdoor clothing got a bit wet and muddy however this was no problem as the stall had plenty of bags for wet & muddy shoes each evening.
The Download Menu served until 01.30 was an added bonus.
Our room was excellent, nice and clean and very welcoming, with superb bathroom with a lovely shower.
Breakfast in the morning was very good and tasty.
Will be staying again.

Seconds away from the airport. Free taxi included in the price as is parking the car, but one of the best things is being able to have a smoking room.

Your always welcomed and offered a great service by the Team, I have spent many nights at this hotel. Sadly no more as they now have no smoking rooms, afraid I move with the smoking room as a single woman on business I am not happy standing outside at night. Nut I cannot ray I ever had a bad experience here. I will miss all the team.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Pete72 Poor restaurant food
Accomodation as to be expected, staff service very good but..................... second time staying here and twice the restaurant food has been very poor, difficult to choose between the awful hamburger last year and the dried up taglietelle and meat balls this year, both dishes a waste of money. No one in our group had anything postive to to say about the food, in fact all considered their choice poor value for money.
Better to find the nearest burger van or decent restaurant!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Crunchie Good value
As it was good value I feel sad that there were certain things that were not up to standard which really surprised me.
1) As a Rewards Club member I was not asked if I was.
2) Towels and sheets had black marks on them.
3) Parts of the bathroom were unclean and there were rusty screws on the screens.
4) The sausages were very unpleasant!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jimbob1985 Great place to stay
I stayed one night for business arrived at midnight, someone was at reception and i was checked in in 1 minute. Great room modern telly lots of channels it can also take a USB if you have your own films.
Breakfast selection was not huge but I usually go for continental anyway. Oranejuice could have been better, nice coffee though.
Check out was as hassle free as check in.
Free wifi in the rooms is the only thing I would change.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by tomcat88 Comfortable, quiet and relaxed atmosphere next to airport !
As a 60 yr old woman, travelling alone, I did not anticipate such a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. Previously I have stayed at hotels overnight and felt very uncomfortable and quite honestly I may as well have made a really early morning trip for the airport.
However, the rooms were clean, comfortable and most importantly QUIET. Staff were friendly and helpful and the service I received was 1st class. Well done Holiday Inn Express, I hope all your venues are as good, certainly the staff at this one do you credit.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Red5no16 Met expectations nicely
Stayed here for one night before attending the Ron Haslam Race School at Donington Park (well worth a try!).
Staff friendly, room clean and comfy, evening meal was very nice and not hugely expensive.
The only thing that could be improved (and it seems applicable to 'motels' and hotels) is how to soundproof the door to avoid corridor noise easily entering the room; maybe a second door behind the main door to form a small lobby??
Would use again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by copperbell Does what it says on the box
Arrived late after a flight delay, booked in really quickly, so that we could settle down for the night. Despite the fact that there was a really noisy wedding party in the foyer, the staff were unfazed, and the sound proofing was such that we had a really good night's sleep. Brilliant breakfast. Would definately use agein.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by mggb parking charge
I was not expecting the overnight parking charge on top of the room cost and was not impressed with the way I was asked to pay this amount when I checked in for the single night stay. it was not the amount but the fact that this charge had not been explicitly shown when I made the booking. On my next visit to Donington I will be staying somewhere else.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by deedee18 holday inn traumatic experience
In all we stayed at the Holiday Inn for 5 nights in January and more recently for I night in march.
On the night in March we arrived at the hotel in the early hours of the morning . The first key would not open the door, we commenced unpacking in the Second room but on turning the tap on the floor of the bathroom started to flood
The third room was satisfactory but it was between 1.30 and 2am
before we got to bed.
Our car had been left in Shuttle Plus so on the Saturday morning we went to fetch it , The staff informed us that our cases would be ok to be left in the room.
We returned to the hotel at 10.25, collected our cases and left 20 minutes later-------
THIS MORNING I RECEIVED A PARKIING TICKET FOR £100
What a nightmare !
I would point out that your staff at the hotel have been excellent at all times

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by LXPA Convenient to go to the airport
It is quite near to get on the early flight. But a fight between customers deep in the night spoiled my stay that night. The staff did not react promptly.
