Stayed here for two nights because we were going to an event at Donington Park. The location for the park and for the airport are both excellent - you can walk from the hotel to Donington in 40 mins and to the airport in 15 or 20.
The staff were fantastic - very helpful and always had a smile.
The rooms were comfortable and quiet. The bathrooms were clean and modern looking.
The breakfast is included in the price and is pretty good - limited hot options of sausage, eggs and beans but plenty of other things, so you really can't complain.
Parking is £4 per night but was less than I thought it would be considering it is an airport hotel and having to pay is one of the pitfalls I guess of staying near an airport.
Also has free wifi which was pretty good and consistent throughout the hotel.
Would recommend, especially for the price and convenience.
