I was looking forward to staying in a nice hotel and relaxing with a glass of wine in the bar after a hard day at work but it was not to be. This hotel looks grand from the outside but is tired and in need of some attention inside. The bar was soulless so I spent the evening in my... More

Stayed last week with a group of 16. Our rooms excellent and modern despite the age of the building, which had real character. Beds comfortable and en suites modern. Nice compact hotel - short walk to everywhere. Staff v. friendly and approachable manager. Food good and everyone happy! Course was very good. Excellent challenging holes and all in good nick....

I stay at and visit this hotel on a regular basis. The hotel is lovely and very relaxing. The rooms vary massively which keeps it interesting. The food is good quality whether it's at the bar or in the restaurant. The golf course is excellent and make sure you have a lesson with Matt if you visit! Only complaint is... More

We stayed here for one night and were fortunate to have booked the honeymoon suite. If you must stay here, this is definitely the room to stay in. There are two separate rooms within the suite. On first entering we were somewhat surprised to see two single beds. On investigating further, (a couple of doors later), we were delighted to... More

We attended a wedding reception here recently and all I can say it was the best wedding ever. The venue is stunning and the organisers are so attentive. The food was fantastic and sometimes with a lot of people to cater for this can be difficult but this was definitely not the case. The evening buffet was delicious too. If... More

Played golf in a party of 28 people and really enjoyed everything about Donnington Grove. The course was in great shape, the welcome was second to none and the restaurant food was the best we've experienced at similar resorts. Everybody at the hotel, from reception to bar and restaurant staff, made our stay a real pleasure.

Stayed here 2 nights mainly because we bought tickets to visit Highclere castle and wanted a stopover close to it. This hotel looks more impressive from the outside than the inside. On our arrival there was a wedding photo shoot outside in the driveway with the entire congregation so we couldn't find a park for the car to start with.... More

This is a lovely hotel, with friendly staff. It could be modernised but then would loose some of its old stately home charm that sets it out from other commercial group hotels. The food is excellent, the grounds are amazing, it's quirky with hundreds of geese on the lawn, the opportunity to play golf or have a days clay pigeon... More

Gorgeous building set in lovely grounds. It felt like we were miles from anywhere! The rooms were big, bright and airy but I thought they could be cleaner; I dropped something off the TV table so I moved the table and was horrified to discover all the cobwebs! Also the bath mat had perished into the bath and there was... More

Excellent place to stay. Stayed for my husbands 50th which included battle proms at high Clare castle. Me and my husband were in the pavilion suite which was idyllic. The rest of the family were in twins. All rooms were of a high standard. Breakfast was excellent with plenty of choice. The staff were all very helpful and did everything... More

Dear Mayer_8, Thank you for the great feedback, following your recent surprise visit for your husband's 50th Birthday. It takes a lot of planning to ensure that surprise occasions go to plan and I am pleased that with Mario's help too, we played our part in keeping things quiet for when the rest of the family arrived. Thanks once again... More
