We had a great overnight stay at the Holiday Inn Express - East Midlands. All of the staff were professional, friendly and helpful. Bedroom was very clean, comfortable and quiet. Breakfast (buffet style help yourself, hot and cold items) was included in the price and was good, juice was fine, not sure why folks were complaining about it!
We took a taxi from the airport to get to the hotel, just a few minutes drive. The hotel staff told us that the Skylink bus stops outside the hotel so we planned on taking that the next morning to take us back to the airport, however we were ready with plenty of time to spare so we walked - took 15 minutes and was a pleasant walk with a pavement the whole way! Easy enough for us as we only had small cabin bags but I guess pulling a 25 kilo bag wouldn't be much fun!
Overall, a great stay and we will definitely use the hotel for our next stopover at East Midlands.
