We have just got back from a 2 night stay for my cousins wedding. Positives - friendly staff, breakfast was good but small - we both had scrambled eggs which were lovely, hotel generally clean, large bedroom. Negatives - very uncomfortable bed (room 6), threadbare carpet on stairs held together with tape, very tired decor, mismatched poor quality furniture in... More

My wife and I stayed there over two nights for a friends wedding. For reference we had Room 7, a twin looking out to the back of the hotel. On arrival the receptionist was friendly, very helpful and our booking, made about 4 months previously, was correct. The carpet on the stairs and in the corridor to our room was... More

This is an AA three Star Hotel. It is ideally located for East Midlands Airport and the Donington Race Circuit. Whilst all of the staff without exception were fantastically friendly and helpful the building and furnishings do need some updating. We had one of the courtyard rooms. We returned late to the room and the light outside the door was... More

The staff were nice and friendly but the hotel itself is in a very bad state. Some of the furniture looks like it was rescued from a skip - stained, threadbare sofas, divans with holes and what look like cigarette burns in them, dirty plywood furniture like that from a student house. The carpets were all stained, threadbare and filthy... More

We stayed at the hotel for a friends wedding, before we even got to the hotel we were not impressed, we were not given any confirmation of our booking, even when we emailed the hotel for a copy we still did not receive it. On arrival at the hotel I was told that we had booked a twin room when... More

We have been regular visitors for lunch and dinner over the years at Donnington but what a disappointment our anniversary lunch turned out to be. Pre lunch drinks in the bar were spoilt by the stained and shabby chairs, in fact one armchair should have been put on the tip years ago.We had the three course lunch at £17.95 cooked... More

We stayed one night midweek to break up a long journey and were disappointed from the start of our stay. Having phoned to book and asked for one of their "superior" rooms with courtyard access we were given a dark room with a small window and although quiet spacious was very depressing. When I complained we were upgraded to a... More

Stayed at this hotel for the Download festival so wasn't really expecting much other than a bed and a handy location. When I checked into the room though I couldn't have been more surprised, the room was gorgeous and so was the immensely huge bathroom! I would definitely stay here again now I know how lovely the hotel is.

We had booked one night, DB&B. After a mix up with booking we were upgraded to a suite which was lovely - own garden with table and chairs, large bedroom, bathroom plus lounge area. It was really lovely. Dinner, somewhat limited choice, but the food was really good, breakfast freshly cooked to order and delicious - generous size too. The... More
