Not a great hotel. Looking old and worn. Trying to patch things up.... Looks shabby. Quilt rack in bathroom for towels looks quite odd. No obvious source of heat in the room either. £87 for room only is quite dear. Travelodge was full so had to stay here.

Dear plannergrrrl, Thank you for posting your recent review for Donnington Grove County Club. I take feedback very seriously and I was very concerned and sorry to read that you appear to prefer travel lodge to the accommodation, service and surroundings we provide. The rate you mention is competitively priced in the market, including breakfast for a standard room, perhaps... More

I doubt I have a 'typical' experience in a hotel as normally the hotel is overshadowed by an 'event' which has motivated the booking. I arrived early (8.45AM) but was still allowed to check in and collect a key, and then given directions for the quickest route to my office, involving a 'yomp' across public footpaths, a cricket field and...

So, I booked a LAKE VIEW room... If there was a lake there, it was well hidden as I could not see it at all. A complete rip off. You have to drive around to the main entrance all the time and the restaurant is a good walk away from reception. Hideous restaurant, very bland and full of golfers. I... More

I visited this hotel for the first time on the 24th/25th October, my brother got married here. Working for a well known worldwide hotel chain and knowing what should be done and where you check every detail from start to finish when you stay away, I can honestly say I was really pleasantly surprised with this hotel. Drove up the... More

Stayed here midweek on a 2 night deal. It is in a beautiful location, on a golf course with wonderful lake views. As we approached the hotel, it looked very impressive. The lady on reception was friendly and helpful at check in. We were booked in for a standard room. She gave us a choice of 2 rooms, which were... More

We visited the Donnington Grove for Sunday lunch, after seeing the sign advertising two courses for £10. This seemed reasonable value for a roast meal, and we had previously seen the beautiful grounds, and so went expecting a lovely lunch. The hotel is absolutely beautiful, no doubt about it. The view from the car park across the grass to the... More

Don't bother to visit for this. Checked out the website prior to visiting and was hoping this would be served in the hotel. Unfortunately down next to a noisy golf club bar. Horrible sweet scones, one pot of uber cheap jam and squirty cream - yuk. Made worse by the noise of juvenile staff messing around in the adjacent kitchens.

We initially looked at Donnington Grove for our party because of the beautiful house and grounds. But what made it really special was the care and attention afforded to us by all the staff. The help and guidance we received from Nigel, the hotel manager and Katarina, the events manager was fundamental in creating, what turned out to be, a... More

Wow what can we say. From start to finish it was just fantastic. All the staff were great from reception to waiting staff and to the Manager for making sure it ran smoothly. Our main guy was Charlie who honestly couldn't have been better. He guided us through from when we first approached him and was a constant support to... More
