I stay at a lot of Premier Inn's and they're almost all good (and exceptional value).
East Midlands airport was no different but there were a couple of things I was particularly impressed with.
Firstly, there is ample car parking and it is security gated. That's unusual and provided an extra level of confidence. Secondly, the car park is incredibly well lit on a night. It is something Premier Inn should improve on at other sites.
The room had air conditioning too and that is always a welcome addition for me.
Everything worked as expected and the shower pressure was very good indeed (again something that isn't always guaranteed).
The staff were very pleasant and the bar/restaurant area was very welcoming and surprisingly quiet compared to others in the group. By that I don't mean it wasn't busy, it was. However, the people in it were quiet and aware of others around them - and considerate of them.
The lift was also one of the fastest of any Premier Inn I've ever stayed at! That'll sound very odd indeed but it is something you tend to notice when you stay at the same group hotels regularly!
All in all, a perfect one night business over-night stay.
