We have stayed at this hotel on many occasions since 2008 and we can honestly say that we've always had a wonderful stay. The levels of service and standard of food have remained high and we were particularly impressed by the cleanliness throughout the hotel, particularly in the Pool and Spa. Breakfast times were a treat with such a wide... More

Bathroom needs updating and toilet seat made out of wood, trying to be natural..... failing miserably and looking cheap. Shower strength was good. Cleaners hoovering outside the room at 7am and constant noise during night Breakfast poor quality for price paid... More

I have often had meetings at the Donnington Valley hotel but last night was the first time that I have stayed there. It is a corporate hotel but has many extra touches that make it stand out. Most important was the attitude of all the staff - friendly, welcoming, professional and efficient. The room was very well equipped and spotlessly... More

I enjoyed my 3 night stay at the Donnington Valley Hotel, we had a classic double which was nice, although i would recommend booking the executive room if there are 2 of you staying as it is far more spacious. The rooms are very nicely decorated at the beds very comfortable. The spa facilities are very nice too with a... More

Once again the Donnington has delivered. Since spending our Wedding night here 16 years ago we have returned on many occasions and after a day at Newbury Races it was good to be back. We joined friends who were staying overnight for supper. After relaxing drinks in the bar and also a full lunch at the racecourse we decided that... More

Well there is only one positive from this stay, the quality of the toilet roll. What was wrong? First room 217, had lots of wasps coming through the window, (natural thing, just not welcoming). Blood on sheet of one of the beds. So we move room. Room 224, - no robes - a body hair in one bed - along... More

I took my partner here for a peaceful break from life at home. On arrival to the place we passed their golf course which looked picturesque and very well maintained. On entrance we were received with a warm welcome. Fantastic looking entrance hall, and we found our room very quickly. We had an executive room and found it very pleasing,... More
