Great Deals on Rooms

You could shoot an arrow from the airport to this airport hotel, it's that close. At just a five-minute walk, the Thistle East Midlands airport hotel is the closest; and what's more, it doesn't scrimp on the luxury either. You'll find comfortable, spacious rooms and a spa with a pool, steam room, sauna and gym. The main draw, however, is the fantastic Sherwood restaurant which serves AA rosette-winning cuisine. For luxury, elegant dining and simple convenience, you'll find that the Thistle East Midlands Airport hotel, near Castle Donington, Derby, really hits the target.

With the quaint village of Castle Donington just a ten minute drive away, you can soak in a last few gulps of the English countryside before catching your flight. Blending a mixture of old and new, Castle Donington village provides a little retail therapy, traditional pubs and beautiful walks to stretch your legs!
