We stayed at this hotel during the August Bank Holiday weekend and it was great. Nice clean rooms, great staff and the food and overall service provided was excellent. I would recommend this hotel to anyone wishing to stay here.

Booked this as a last minute spa break with my daughter. The hotel is very new with really well appointed facilities in the room. It is comfortable, modern and clean and high quality. The only downside is the food - which is good but does not match the quality of the hotel/rooms/service. The food choice is uninspiring and even breakfast, though a huge choice, it's a bit downmarket. That said the service was excellent and so too the facilities and we would certainly stay here again.

We stayed here before flying out of East Midlands Airport. We booked the hotel room, including car parking at hotel, great value for money. Hotel was great, staff were fantastic, friendly and very helpful. Travel cot was provided for our daughter. When the porter brought it to our room he wasn't happy with it as felt it smelled of sick, so put it back down and brought us another one. The hotel was immaculate and very modern. Bed was very comfy. We used the swimming pool which our 2 year old daughter loved. We had food and drinks in the bar, which was very nice. Transfer to airport was excellent, only takes a few minutes from hotel and on our return was very accessible and we didn't have to wait long. We will definitely stay here again and would highly recommend to all.

We stayed at this hotel before flying on The hotel is very modern in design and the rooms of a high quality. The only issue we had was that the bed in keeping with most Radisson Blu Hotels was overly firm, but of course this is personal preference. We ate dinner in The Runway Brasserie and found the food very tasty and of a good standard if a little pricey. The staff were all very helpful and pleasant. The airport transfers smooth. Would definitely stay again if the need arises.

As we were going away for less than 3 weeks we decided to leave the car at East midlands Airport. As the flight was early in the morning we booked the Radison with car parking included, The staff here are fantastic and are very accommodating. We had a room with a walk in shower. The bathroom was modern and had a mirror that didnt steam up. The room was of a good size, plenty of amenities, safe and fridge. We used the Spa and had a swim and a sauna. All towels are provided free of charge. Included in the price was transfer to and from the airport and free coffee and tea was provided while we waited. After our trip when we arrived back at East Midlands we rang the hotel on the free courtesy phone and were picked up in 10 minutes. Would highly recommend this hotel. We will use it again if the need arises.

One of the best hotels I use in the UK.. Rooms are a good size with excellent comfortable beds and plenty of amenities such as a safe and fridge as well as coffee making facilities. The hotel is very clean and modern. The bathroom is large with a great shower and I love the mirror that doesn't steam up when you shower. The breakfast was excellent with omelettes made to order and a large array of cereals, fruit, hot food and pastries.

We booked this hotel for the night before our holiday, car parking and the night we arrived back to England (which was VERY silly o'clock!!! The hotel was superb in every aspect - car stayed on sight (big relief), evening meal was lovely, transfer to airport very easy and included hot drink and snack while we waited 5 mins for the transport. When we landed back in the UK, we phoned the hotel using the courtesy phone and within 5 mins the transport had arrived. Our room was ready and waiting and our stay was ended with a lovely full English buffet breakfast. The hotel was very quiet and you had to keep reminding yourself it was at the end of a very busy runway- aircraft noise was at a minimum and unobtrusive. Thank you Radisson Blu - a job very well done with extremely polite and helpful staff on hand.
