Anyone have any good B&B's or cheap hotels to recommend near East Midlands?

Any help most welcome

Own wheels? Try looking in Diseworth, Ladygate Guest House.
Using the bus? Lots of places in Castle Don and a regular bus service.
Thistle on the airport might do you a deal, worth a punt.

Prawn to Run
If you know in advance what your schedule try the £19 deals at Travel Lodge at Moto Service Jct 23a (within 1 mile of EMA) or if you have wheels same branch at Pride Park Derby (about 20 mins from EMA but the £19 deals seem more frequent). Good outlets there for food etc :\

The Falcon Inn at Long Watton, which is only a few minutes from the airport. Has converted buildings at back and a real nice restaurant there

Holiday Inn Express on the airport site.
If you book with central reservations you get a rate of £52 a night including continental breakfast and transfer to and from the terminal
