        Restaurant food was excellent. Staff had a pleasant, can-do attitude. Very convenient for the airport also.

        the reception area was conjested at times and the parking at the hotel had limited space, the position I used gave me reason to complain

        Clean & comfortable with afriendly apmosphere

        Evening meal not as good as Doncaster airport with regard to quality & price.

        I liked the location-within walking distance of the airport. itwas also very comfortable-The bar staff were very friendly

        yes we booked for a full english breakfast this was to be served from 7.00am till 10.00am however at 9.30am all the hot breakfast had been packed up and there was only a choice of continental. We felt that we were slightly in the way ant the staff just wanted the breakfast things cleared away.

        It was easy to find off the motorway. We found their long stay parking fairly easily. The hotel's proximity to the airport is brilliant.

        The food. We dined there. I chose a sort of "Sausage & Mash". It was not very nice and certainly not worth the price paid.

        Very convenient for airport and staff very helpful

        Initially allocated a smoking room even though I had requested a none smoking. This was quickly rectified when I pointed this out

        accessibility to the airport

        Tired,impersonal and over priced

        met our requirements perfectly, needed airport parking so chose most convenient hotel. used transfer for early morning departure, on return walked from arrivals to hotel, less than five minutes.will use again.

        It was very clean and comfortable with the reception desk manned 24 hours.

        I was surprised that thje patyement was taken straight from the card number given to Booked.net. I have never had this before and have been able to settle on another card. I understood that the Booked.net card was for reservation only. I was not presented with an invoice which I thought was strange.

        We travel a lot on motorcycle and like to stop off on route to different locations. It was easy to find.

        We booked online. When we arrived we were given room. We booked a double room and were given a twin room. My husband went back to reception to query as the confirmation letter clearly stated a double had been booked. We were told that if you book online you are not guaranteed the room you book. We found the staff unhelpful and although they gave us a double room in the end as they did have one available we found it poor customer service why they could not do that in the first place I am unsure perhaps they keep them for travellers that come in from the airport and as we booked online we are not given the same status. We are keen motorcycle enthusiasts and were completely wet as the weather was exceptionally bad. I was hairdrying my hair and the smoke detector went off. It is very sensitive. We had to pay £5.00 for the car park for a motorcycle. We have never had to do this elsewhere and even in public car parks there is no charge for motorcycles. It is a shame as it is a nice hotel but first impressions remain and it could be absolute luxury but with poor customer service it will not matter how nice the rooms are.

        Nearness to East Midlands airport. Good value for park and stay package.

        Service in the restaurant was extremel slow,due to severe under staffing. for example the wine was served after we had eaten the meal and each table seemed to be offered a different menu! Eg. There was a hot buffet bar set up in the main restauran,but not offered to us. I understand it was for a coach party only,but why set it up the main restaurant and then deny its use to resident guests? The next question refers to recommendation or not. I have said yes because 1) For convenience and airport parking and 2) I think the restaurant experience could and should be easily corrected as the food was ok..

        The perfect place if you're looking for a hotel near the East Midlands airport - it was literally a 3-4-minute (with 3 huge pieces of luggage) walk from the main doors. When we arrived, they even asked us what floor we want the room on. The room itself was quite big compared to some British double rooms, with plenty of space, and the wide-screen tv looked nice, albeit I never got around to using it.

        Windows facing a car park. But that's just being picky.

        staff, localisation,

        no free internet access, faulty flush, lengthy wetness after bathing (poor airing)

        We have stayed at this Hotel before and find it very convenient for early morning flights from East Midkands Airport
