Stayed here for 1 night prior to a morning flight from nearby East Midlands Airport. On check in we received a warm professional welcome. Everything was explained and we stayed in a cosy double on the top floor. Clean and tidy and well worth the price. If you are after somewhere to eat nearby try the village of Kegworth.
