During lockdown, unlike other hotels we stayed open and supported housing key workers and other key initiatives. That experience has helped us fine tune our implementation and management of covid safe environments for guests, staff and all visitors.
We keep up to date with government guidance and are in touch with local authorities and regulatory agencies to determine what’s appropriate for people safety in our buildings and grounds.
As an independent and flexible hotel, we are able to implement changes with greater ease and commitment than the big groups.
Processes that promote safety. You will notice some changes in our normal booking process. For example, we will try and complete a lot of the formalities of booking and check in/ check out remotely. You will still be greeted personally – albeit, we may be behind some subtle barriers. This is because we still want to make your stay personal and we still want to be vigilant about who is in our hotel, for the sake of everyone’s safety. You will be asked to sign (with a sanitised pen!) a COVID symptom free declaration. Whilst we won’t take your temperature, we reserve the right to do this (remotely, of course). You’d also want the assurance that other residents and our staff are similarly symptom free.
We will store contact details for at least 21 days to assist the government’s track and trace initiative.
Our food service – with an extensive menu is now resumed. Remote ordering is available and you can have food in your room. Our rooms are spacious so this should a safe, pleasant and comfortable experience. You will be pleased to hear also that we have spacious lounges and common areas – especially so after having recently refurbished and expanded the hotel.
Staff will continue use PPE as required. Guests are asked to take safety measures as they feel comfortable.
There are sanitisation points within a few yards of hotel entry points, lounge areas and your rooms. You can get dispensed, touch-free, measured amount of alcohol based sanitisation gel – that way you can keep your room a “safe zone”.

Book direct to get the best deals and support your nation's business. The majority of agents are overseas based, avoid paying UK taxes and did hardly anything to support actual hotels during the COVID-19 crisis (some even shut their booking engines so they don't have to field enquiries!).
When you book through an agent, typically as much as 25 pence per Pound will be sliced off the service/product value for the agent. That loss in value has to be paid for somehow and usually that's in higher than needed pricing or poorer service. It does next to nothing for the value you receive when you book through an internet based agent. Book direct to get the best service, best deals and best value and to support UK jobs your national businesses.

The venue has been upgraded and very user friendly. Location is very good just off the M1 and near East Midland Airport. The staff are very helpful and friendly. There is ample car parking with disabled access. We have been using the conference centre for many years and would recommend it. Google review Nov 2020
We stopped 1 night and left the car for 6 days as they offered a package including accommodation, car parking and transfers to East Midlands Airport. Plenty space in the car park and it seemed well lit and as secure as can be hoped for in a hotel car park. We had pre-booked and for about £70 the cost was only a bit more than an airport car park. Check in was easy and our room clean if a bit dated. Breakfast was included with a good selection of hot and cold items. The taxi transfer was on time (actually waiting for us) and it is only 10 mins to the airport. On our return we went to the taxi desk and was allocated a taxi for our return to pick up our car,Trip Advisor review Oct 2019
The hotel has recently been refurbished giving it a clean modern look reception, bar and dining area. The bedroom was clean and spacious with a very comfortable and large bed. Meals were tasty. It is situated close to major roads, rail link, airport and bus routes. Really could not fault anything. Trip Advisor review Feb 2020
Stayed here many times for business and even during the current Covid situation it's great. Staff are friendly and welcoming and my room was clean and spacious. No complaints about the food, so all good. Trip advisor review Jan 2021
