Stayed here a couple of years ago. We loved the room and decor. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was good. Very comfortable environment. Clean and reasonably priced when we stayed here. I just loved the room.

This is a beautiful hotel but spoiled by being too hot - felt a bit like a dog in a hot car. The aircon on the lowest setting blew warm air and the windows don't open in the rooms. I was given a fan when I asked, they brought it to the room for me no problem, but the lack...

This is my preferred hotel for working the Notts, Derby areas. It's convenient and has great road links and right next to the airport. Also a lovely fitness facility including spotlessly clean pool! I think the breakfast here is the best in any hotel I've stayed for business. The food in general is very good and the service great throughout....

Was pleasantly surprised by this hotel. Wonderful helpful staff, lovely relaxing atmosphere in the bar and reception area. The bedroom was well decorated and clean and I was asked on arrival if I preferred a bath or walk in shower. I requested a walk in shower and it was lovely. All round thumbs up.

Very convenient from the M1. Modern, extremely clean and tidy hotel. Spacious. Good bar area and restaurant. Food excellent. Staff friendly and helpful and not overbearing. Drink prices not ridiculous. Good parking area. I was in the Stirling suite which was very comfortable, and spacious. The bathroom had a bath, separate shower, separate toilet cubicle, and two washbasins. The breakfast...

Arriving mid afternoon I was welcomed , checked in, and was soon in my room. The room was spacious and comfortable, although would have preferred a bath in addition to merely a shower, plus the opportunity to have an opening window. Whilst the corridors were carpeted, the bedroom was not; I would have preferred a carpet in the bedroom, not...

I always think that your first impression of a hotel is the greeting you receive on arrival. Well the welcome by the reception team at the Radisson was impeccable. Thank you Michael and Sue for making our check in welcoming and smooth. We ate in the bar area and the food could not be faulted. It was hot, tasty and...

Appreciate the moral support by reception staff. We checked out yesterday am and arrived back to the hotel 5 mins later as our car had major difficulties.

There is no doubt that this hotel has modern, clean, well presented facilities. It is next to the airport obviously, and it is easy to find. If I was flying from East Mids, I would stay here again. On the down side, the hotel is devoid of personality. Its what you would get if IKEA opened a hotel. The receptionist...
