Very easy to find as by the side of the main road through Castle Donington. Large forecourt with plenty of car parking. Initial impression good, but don't look too carefully at the exterior paintwork. Reception really sums up this hotel as it is an eclectic mix of tastefully decorated rooms and ones that are past their sell by date. Customer... More

There is NO LEVEL ACCESS to the hotel & on arrival it is not obvious which entrance to use - no 'Reception' sign - as there are several doors to the front of... More

We went to this hotel because it was part of the Finesse portfolio, one of which was also the Lace Market hotel which we had stayed on our wedding night. The Lace Market Hotel had since gone into administration. This hotel was not to the same quality. The customer and food service was excellent, but the state of the hotel's... More

Upon arrival at 21.45hrs we approached the reception desk and were asked if we were checking in - surely they would have known if they were still waiting for two rooms with female guests to arrive. Upon being shown our Superior Rooms (Booked via Late Rooms) which were lovely, we discovered one of the rooms had a door which did... More

My sister and I took our parents to the Manor for a father's day lunch. We were very impressed with the friendly service and excellent food. A very enjoyable time... we're looking forward to booking our Christmas Lunch.
