A career path change is always challenging, but after 10 years of happy association it is a particularly difficult decision to make. So I took the opportunity to look a little closer at the proposal by attending a 4 day awareness course held at The Donnington Valley Hotel & Spa just outside Newbury. Check-in was simple without fuss. My room... More

This is a very pleasant hotel close to a golf course, Newbury town and Highclere House. The reception staff were very welcoming and check-in was efficient. Overall, the room was fine - could do with redecoration. The bed was nice and comfortable and had good quality sheets. However, the duvet was quite thin. Complimentary tea and coffee with fresh milk.... More

we went for a meal for five. the food was okay, a complaint about one main meal was dealt with with the comment "I'll let them know". The charges levied to have a starter from one side of the menu and a main meal from the other side were very high and quickly made a well priced menu an expensive... More

I was disappointed to read that your dining experience with us wasn’t as enjoyable as expected. We do take care to ensure that all of our wines on our wine list are competitively priced so I’m sorry you felt our wines were expensive. I’m sorry to hear that you didn’t enjoy the wine that was recommended, and I can only... More

Stayed for a business meeting and day, food was excellent, staff were very helpful. I would definitely staff again. Spa was good, clean and swimming pool nice but slightly too small for a serious swimmer.
