Very friendly, comfortable guest house. Great English breakfast. Freedom to go back to room any time of day, which was useful during very heavy rain storm! Although it is a family home, you didn't feel you were intruding. Will be returning next time we fly from East Midlands airport! The entrance door is at the far end !

I stayed at this guest house as I was attending a function at Donington Hall, which is about 2 miles away. There is a reasonable amount of parking at the back of the guest house although part of the car park is on a slope. I had prearranged a time of arrival with the owner and on arrival I was...

Stayed in a second floor en suite room for four nights. We were made to feel very welcome. The room was basic, however, very clean and comfortable. The only issue was a clogged shower drain but was promptly taken care of once brought to the attention of the owner. Fruit of some sort would have been nice for breakfast. The...

Stayed here for two nights in a twin en suite room. Lovely clean room, all expected facilities. Great location for the village and the nearby race track. Great hospitality from the couple who run the business with a warm welcome. Had a nice breakfast cooked by themselves, my only observation was the breakfast sausage was about two inches long, which...

I stayed here two nights when working in the area, as I single female I am a little fussy where I stay, there was nothing to concern me here. I had a room on the ground floor which was convenient close to a little kitchen for residents use. My room was warm and well protected for the traffic noise outside....

I stayed here for one night before an early flight from East Midlands Airport which is literally just around the corner. They must have some excellent double glazing as even though the runway was within only about a mile, I hardly noticed the air traffic - or the main road traffic outside the bedroom! The only quibble I would have...

Friendly welcoming hosts. Shown the room and facilities. Room clean fresh and bright. Breakfast was excellent. Cereals, yogurts , tea coffee juice, and full English. 2 rashers bacon, sausage, 2 eggs, baked beans, tinned tomatoes, mushrooms and a choice of toast (2 slices) Well worth the price. Would stay again anytime
