Radisson Blu Hotel, East Midlands Airport
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 28 August 2014

Stayed for 1 night prior to an early morning flight from EMA having booked a weeks parking on site also. Have to say the price was very reasonable considering the brand of hotels.

Check in etc was simple, friendly and efficient.

Room was spotless and immaculately decorated. Such style to the room, especially liked the features such as hidden mirror in the wardrobe side and TV speaker in the bathroom. Also liked the nice big shower head.

I want my house to look like the room!

Note: Not sure if twin rooms would be the same, but you can see in to the bathroom from the bedroom so, should they be the same, you'd have to be very friendly with your companion.

The airport shuttle was booked on arrival to ensure it would be ready and left on time and dropped off right outside. On return, used the free phone to the hotel in arrivals and they came and picked us up in less than 10 mins. Very slick.

Highly recommended.

Hi iExplore

Thanks for the really great review, I'm delighted you enjoyed your stay so much and appreciated some of the attention to detail in your room.

To set your mind at rest all our twin rooms, family rooms and suites have opaque glass to the bathroom rather than clear to provide more privacy than in the king double rooms.

Feedback on the clear glass is quite interesting with many guests loving the natural daylight it provides to the bathroom whilst some do prefer more privacy so we have made a number of our double rooms opaque as well, these rooms can be requested at check in.

Thanks once again for the feedback.

Warm regards

Daniel

Stayed here before flying, and enjoyed a touch of luxury. The beds are lovely, I don't normally sleep well before flying, but despite being up at 4.30 am, I did quite well!
The restaurant did us some lovely meals, my daughters vegetables were cold, but the staff were so apologetic and gave her a free dessert.
Also we left my car here and enjoyed the free shuttle service to the airport. Would't hesitate to stay here again.

This is a hotel with good facilities and is surprsingly quiet considering its proximity to the runway at East Midlands Airport. The pool is a good size for a hotel, and is the same depth everywhere. The rooms are a good size, with plenty of natural light even in the bathrooms.

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.
