Whilst being our way to the West-coast we stayed over in the Donnington Grove Hotel and Country Club in Newbury. We were pleasantly surprised when entering the grounds of the hotel. At first you have to drive partly across the fairways. Be aware of flying golf balls but no helmets needed. :-) We stayed just outside the main building in... More

Stayed in lovely twin room, plenty of space and big ensuite with bath. Very comfy beds and pillows but stuffy as sash windows limited to 6inch opening and no aircon on one of hottest nights of the year! Dinner and breakfast both excellent, as were drinks on the terrace in the evening sunshine. For a "golf" hotel, the standard felt... More

My husband and I play golf off handicaps 5 and 12 respectively and we found the course to be excellent. Unfortunately, the weather had it in for us, but even still the greens were well kept and the course made you think on every shot. The course is long, due to quite a walk between front and back nines. The... More

Stayed for two nights with friends. The hotel sits in the middle of a golf course, the building itself looks old but is pretty well maintained considering the age of both the structure and the interior finishes. We had a nice walk around the grounds and ventured to look at the ruins of Donnington Castle which offers great views. We... More

I booked our stay via a Living Social offer, for our wedding anniversary, purchasing a deal for 2 nights bed and breakfast, which included afternoon tea and a bottle of prosecco. The hotel gave us a free upgrade to an executive room which was superb, We dined in the restaurant on the first night, and the menu was reasonable priced... More

Stayed here with my son and father whilst attending the RIAT 2015. Room was fine but breakfast at £10 was pretty poor - 1 sausage, one egg, one medium mushroom, one tomato and 2 rashers of bacon. Scarily the menu on the table priced the breakfast at £17.50! Whilst there were other items on there I would have been complaining... More

I read reviews of previous travelers and the ones that were negative were mainly upset about the conditions of the hotel. This is a wonderful, old hotel. It's not modern but it is fabulous. I was thrilled that they left it as original as possible. The rooms are spacious, as are the bathrooms. The grounds are gorgeous and you can... More
