This is a lovely modern hotel. The staff were warm, welcoming and efficient. Check in was completed with minimum fuss, keys and directions to our room given. We arrived later than expected so did not have time to use the spa facilities but they looked great. We had a meal in the restaurant which was fabulous. Again the service was...

I stay at the Radisson East Midlands Airport regularly and since day 1 I haven't been disappointed. The rooms are absolutely beautiful and clean. They have all the amenities you couldn't possibly need and the beds are so comfortable and big. I work for a company that gives us a food allowance and on check out, it's always sorted which...

Everything about this stay was perfect, check in was painless - No pre authorising your credit card for money you may or may not spend but then it takes 3 -5 days after you have left to be back in your account, no forms and addresses to be filled out... a signature and we had the key to our room...

From the telephone call to book our two nights away before our long awaited holiday I guessed we had picked the right place to stay and I wasn't wrong.

Stopped here the night before an early flight to lanzarote during April.

We stayed here for one night because of a ridiculously early check-in time. Very comfortable room with all the amenities one could require. Yes, the shower was a little different but not that complicated that you couldn't work it out! Staff were extremely helpful at check-in, in the bar and the restaurant. Food was very good and the good service...

Stayed before and after flight with hotel parking. The hotel has pros, mostly that the staff are friendly enough and it's location is good. I had problems with a late night transfer back to the hotel. Though admittedly and understandably I was very tired and was confused by which taxi office I needed to go to. It wasn't very clear...

Hi Vinny We're sorry to learn you won't be staying with us again but were pleased to learn that you found our team members friendly and the hotel location convenient.

My daughter and her family had a lovely family room and I was next door . Beautiful room, very comfortable bed and a large bathroom. Also very clean. We ate in the restaurant and the waiter made an extra effort to accommodate my 4 year old granddaughters likes. Not cheap but but a love start to our holiday
