Mr Cooke, 1 Apr 2013

Mystery Hotel

"Restaurant prices were a little more expensive that i think they ought to be, holiday makers are at the same place where business customers on expense accounts go so cost of meals is not so important to them"
Mr John, South Humberside, 20 Mar 2013

Holiday Inn Express

"No further comment."
Mr Bell, Cambridgeshire, 13 Jan 2013

Thistle Hotel

"Drinks prices in the bar were extortionate eg £8.95 for a glass of mediocre wine. This, no doubt, because the hotel deals mainly with business travellers. The only concession being a 10% discount during the weekend. The transfer taxi broke down and failed to arrive. We only found out when we went to reception to check its whereabouts and it was then left for the hotel night porter to be summoned to run us to the terminal."
Mr Ball, South Yorkshire, 18 Nov 2012

Holiday Inn Express

"Excellent hotel but the restaurant and drinks prices above average"
Mrs Davies, South Yorkshire, 14 Nov 2012

Holiday Inn Express

"Easy to locate. Parking excellent, as was the facilities and staff. Very satisfactory sleep prior to onward travel. Very close and easy to find airport parking. Highly recommended."
Mr Sumner, South Yorkshire, 5 Nov 2012

Radisson Blu Hotel

"The Radisson Blu is an excellent hotel and far superior in accommodation and service to the other on-site hotel at East Midlands. The room was large and comfortable and the shuttles to and from the hotel fast and faultless. The use of the courtesy phone at the airport was particularly thoughtful. Everything went very smoothly. We would thoroughly recommend this hotel."
Mrs Carver, Worcestershire, 10 Oct 2012

Mystery Hotel

"All staff at the hotel were friendly and polite despite being very busy"
Mr Sansom, Nottinghamshire, 5 Oct 2012

Mystery Hotel

"Meals and drinks are very expensive, but there was a special offer on for a 3 course meal £15. We would not have known about this if we hadn't phoned the hotel ahead, as no staff offered us the deal we had to mention it."
Mrs Boulton, Cleveland, 2 Oct 2012

Radisson Blu Hotel

"Someone just walked into our hotel room then left with out saying anything. the air conditioning was noisy and i never slept all night. I asked for someone to sort it out but the person did not do anything. I think £16 for breakfast was very expensive. It was a relief to leave the hotel. i would not go back"
Mr Taylor, North Humberside, 25 Aug 2012

Holiday Inn Express

"Very helpful staff"
Mr Stimpson, Oxfordshire, 7 Aug 2012

Mr Hyde, South Yorkshire, 24 Jun 2012

Mystery Hotel

"This Hotel is a little out of the way but it has enough for all, just one thing (why do prices for food and drink have to be so high when you can go down the road and normal prices apply it is a shame) Great accomodation and service though."
Mrs Ogilvie, Northamptonshire, 21 Jun 2012

Holiday Inn Express

"good all round experience"
Mrs Richardson, Staffordshire, 8 Jun 2012

Mystery Hotel

"I used APH parking to park my car for a week and an over night stay. I booked a 'mystery hotel' So the price was very cheap. After booking with the sales team via phone I was informed that the hotel was The Hilton Hotel (East Midlands airport) I couldn't believe it!! Wonderful service at the hotel and when our transfer for the airport arrived the driver drove to our car to help us with our luggage. The same happened on the return journey. It made us feel very special and took the stress out of travelling."
Mrs Close, Shropshire, 6 Jun 2012

Mystery Hotel

"after we had phoned the hotel for the transfer we here waiting 25 min before being picked up for , transfer from airport back to hotel"
Mr Pritchard, West Midlands, 3 Jun 2012

Thistle Hotel

"It would be better if transfers were INCLUDED in the overall price. The hotel is very close to the airport, and the additional £4 each way transfer cost meant that we could have got the same price by booking direct with the hotel, or with Holiday Extras who include transfers."
