Radisson Blu Hotel, East Midlands Airport

Reviewed 24 December 2011

We attended a wonderful wedding reception on 23rd December 2011 and were, like most wedding guests, thoroughly impressed with this new purpose built hotel. We have stayed at many hotels but have never before experienced such attentive hotel staff who catered for every need. This is a contemporary hotel with well equipped bedrooms, rain showers, comfortable beds and an onsite health club with pool, sauna, steam room and exercise equipment. Given it is also located next to the airport, the hotel is well sound proofed and we experienced no engine noise etc. The only criticism is that the pressure in the showers could have been stronger and the water, a little warmer, but these are minor details in what was otherwise a very enjoyable stay. Great food, typically priced drinks for a hotel. If you are looking to stay in a hotel close to East Midlands airport, we'd highly recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: The family rooms / junior suites are excellent.

The hotel is very modern, with contemporary furnishings and equipment. The reception staff were a bit nonchalant, so was not too happy with their service when checking in. The room was very nice, unique, contemporary and comfortable. There was an in-room fridge, complimentary water, and a nice modern bathroom with a large rain style shower. I've never seen such a hotel with such modern interior, very impressive. I did not eat breakfast, as it was very expensive, also in terms of meals, I went into Derby on the way back and ordered a very tasty Indian takeaway from Shalimar, and ate it in the comfort of my room in the hotel.

Room Tip: Choose a room that's not facing the runway of East Midlands Airport (unless you like watching no...

Just stayed at the Radisson East Midlands for two nights for business. The hotel had only been open for 7 weeks so everything is brand new and lovely.
This is a fairly large and modern hotel, in the pegasus business park right next to the airport.

I had a lovely room on the third floor, very spacious and comfortable, massive comfy bed and great blackout curtains (important for me as I was working through the night and sleeping through the day)

There is a decent gym, obviously all nice new equipment in it and the pool, sauna and steamroom were all great too.

Food was high quality, a bit pricey like hotel food often is, but good tasty stuff.

This new hotel was very quiet, with the exception of a few work Christmas parties that were being hosted there I got the impression that there were few guests, and this place deserves more!

Enjoy

Brand new hotel near work so decided to stay ahead of a flight the next day. The hotel is expensive compared to other on the airport by this hotel is by far the best, so if you are willing to pay a fair bit more than other nearby hotels, then go for it.

Really good sized rooms and very clean. Helpful staff as well. As with this type of hotel, drinks are very expensive. The bar and reception are are very modern and bright which is fine if you like that sort of thing, but if you preper a more cosy hotel bar and, try the Hilton nearby.

Buffet style breakfast was excellent.

Room Tip: If it is your thing, ask for a room overlooking the runway

Beautiful new hotel. Rooms well appointed. Leisure Centre small. New beds seem to be causing a problem - we had to move room!! Breakfast excellent. Staff pleasant.
