Perfectly placed hotel on the doorstep of East Midlands Airport – our hotel has spacious bedrooms and exceptional conference facilities making us far more than an airport hotel.

For many of our guests at Thistle East Midlands Airport hotel, our location means the difference between a desperate dawn run and a leisurely departure after a good night’s sleep. Although we are within walking distance from the airport we are not on the flight path and in addition, our triple glazed windows ensure the bedrooms are quiet and peaceful. With our fantastic facilities, a stay at Thistle East Midlands Airport hotel means your holiday can start sooner, and last longer.

We have 164 bedrooms, including Executive rooms, and 15 meeting rooms, the largest seating 250 people theatre-style. On-site parking is available at an additional charge (but still less than the airport). But you don’t have to be travelling, or on business, to base yourself at Thistle East Midlands Airport. We’re handy for Alton Towers and Donington Park – or you can simply relax in our Otium Health & Leisure Club.
