I stayed with my Mum in room number 7 which is one of the lake view rooms, it's in a separate row of little rooms a few minutes walk away from the main building, which feel like you're in a little cottage. The room was a really good size with a big ensuite wet room and a terrace out the... More

Stayed here as it is recommended by the company I work for. It is a decent historic style of hotel with spacious rooms and a good breakfast: it is great if you are a golfer (which I am not). Most of the staff are professional, courteous and helpful. The bar stocks real ale which is always a bonus. The downsides... More

Dear Craig F, Thank you for writing your recent review, I was pleased that you enjoyed your stay(I think?) I was concerned why you felt golfers got priority - perhaps contact me directly so I can understand why this was. We offer a £10 Continental and full English breakfast which I believe is a great discount from £17.50 including juices... More

We recently got married here on bank holiday Easter. We first viewed the hotel 18 months prior with Charlie Hill (wedding planner), who at the time promised us everything we wanted. He definitely didn't fall short, we were torn between two hotels but Charlie's can do approach won through and I'm so glad it did. The only one recommendation would... More

We stayed in room 302 in the old section of the hotel. It was nicely decorated and very large with an enormous bathroom and it had a nice view. There is no elevator but the man at the front desk took 'one' of our bags to the room. No one was available to help us when we left. I had... More

Recently stayed at Donnington. Stunning location. A traditional hotel, no lifts or pool. Staff went out of their way to help. Our room was on the third floor, overlooking the golf course and river, absolutely stunning. The room itself was a superior room which gave us a very large bedroom and large bathroom. The food was first class, served by... More
