Thistle East Midlands Airport hotel

Relax & Explore

Relax & Explore Package

Thistle East Midlands Airport hotel is located at the main entrance to the airport – the only hotel on the airport site. And whilst it’s perfect for flights, it’s also superbly connected for rail and road. The brand new East Midlands Parkway station, the M1 and the M42 are less than 4 miles away, whilst Nottingham, Derby, Leicester and Loughborough are all within a 20 mile radius.

Please allow extra time when travelling to the airport until the 20th of September 2014 as major roadworks are being undertaken on the junction of the M1 and A453 overnight.

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 20 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.
