Decent hotel with pleasant and helpful staff. TV didn't work; urine on the toilet seat when we arrived; one of the floor lamps didn't work. Food is nothing special, but not bad. Bread served on Saturday was clearly from Friday. Good wines. Prompt room service. Spa and gym are good. Massages above average. Watch out for the two lifts -... More

Thank you for posting a view about your recent stay. I’m pleased you found our staff accommodating, but I was disappointed to read that that the bathroom hadn’t been cleaned properly and the TV and lamp did not work. However, it was lovely to read that you received good service and spent some quality time in our spa and gym.... More

Stayed here for a works Christmas party. Check in efficient and friendly. Rooms lovely - one of the nicest hotel bathrooms in any standard double room I've stayed in anywhere. The function was handled superbly by the hotel - food (canapés, 3 course traditional meal, bacon bap midnight snack) was excellent. Bed so comfortable with no noise issues. Wonderful stay... More

This was our third visit to the Donnington Valley with friends and once again it did not disappoint. We drive up from Devon and whilst our home county has a great many hotels, there is something about the Donnington which draws us back and makes the journey worthwhile. It is conveniently placed for the M4 and A34 plus there is... More

Stayed one night for a family event - very pleasant hotel, nicely fitted out and good sized rooms. Excellent breakfast and friendly efficient staff. Sunday lunch was also very good - one of the better restaurants in the area.

Stayed here multiple times for work purposes and had a variety of different style rooms. Rooms always clean, never a problem with anything. Good at the bar is good. Had a burger there and was one of the best ever. (I am a foodie, so that is saying a lot.). Will return. Have stayed in the hiltons in the area... More

We stayed here with my family as a get together. The rooms were spotless and large whilst very comfortable. The hotel was very warm in temperature and never could complain. The staff were very good and the restaurant staff couldn't do enough. Very professional and delicious foods. The wine server either Chris or Martin (can't remember his name) was hilarious... More

Recently stayed one night. It was a lovely hotel, very friendly and helpful staff would come back with husband for a weekend. The food was good too. Did not try the gym but was told by colleagues it was well equipped with a good sized pool.

This was our third consecutive year at Donnington Valley. We played golf on the Friday on the Donnington Valley course which was in excellent condition for the time of year. We then made the short (400 yards) journey to the Donnington Valley Hotel for our annual presentation of cups and prizes and a 3-course dinner in a private room. Generally,... More

Great to hear your golf weekend went so well and you enjoyed playing a couple of games on our 18 hole parkland golf course. I was disappointed to hear that some of your group weren’t completely satisfied with their dinner. I hope they were able to provide feedback to our restaurant team. I’m pleased however, that most of you did... More

Overall, a fun golf weekend. The course is a very short drive of 10 minute walk from the hotel. The course is interesting, although some of the holes are quite close alongside each other. The spike bar was nice, if somewhat quiet (only a couple of other people in there on a Saturday afternoon). The hotel was nice, with efficient... More
