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

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'm often in Newbury for business and so far the Donnington Valley is the hotel with the best value for money. Rooms are ok, free wifi and excellent English breakfast Personnel always professional and available

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.

It was our second visit to the hotel and this time around 6 of us arrived early on a Saturday afternoon ready for our spa break. 2 of our rooms were ready (the exec rooms) but the standard room wasn't ready until later in the day. This wasn't a problem and we were all very happy with the allocated rooms.... More
