We have had Sunday lunch here for £10 several times in past 3 months. First few visits everything excellent, however things seem to be slipping a bit. The chef used to do amazing crackerling for the pork, but this has got less and not as good. Staff friendly. Good value food. Great setting.

Stayed for the weekend. Lovely old hotel in very good condition for it's age. The staff were polite and helpful and the food, in both the restaurant and the bar, cooked to perfection. We had a spacious room overlooking the lake.

No denying that the setting is very nice indeed. The building is well maintained and the room we had was comfortable. Not sure why in this day and age the TV reception could not pick up some of the main channels. Golf is clearly a focal point for the place and the course had plenty of people spoiling a good...

It was nice to see people enjoying their work and taking the time to say "good morning" . We stayed in a room with lakeside view and the room was very cosy and modern. The walk in shower was nice.

Stayed one night on business. Hotel is in a lovely setting in nice grounds. I had a huge room in the main house which was very traditional and would have been great on a weekend away. Bathroom was ancient and could do with a bit of a facelift. Breakfast was good but in a strangely set up room. Would stay... More

Donnington Grove is a beautiful building, set in a quiet park. We were given a warm welcome, and shown to our room, which had everything we needed, including an iron and ironing board. The bed was very comfortable with crisp white linen and feather pillows, and the bathroom was spacious, with a bath/shower. The shower was lovely and powerful. We... More
