I stayed here 4 times on business for several nights each time. Staff were friendly although sometimes a little incompetent. The buffet breakfast was quite good and the 3 course dinner was reasonable. Rooms varied amazingly in size and quality but the beds were always ok. Not so the showers...very little pressure. All in all, I still thought it was... More

This place is hard to review. It could really do with a major makeover. Carpets are threadbare, don't match and covered in tape in places. The bedrooms are very old fashioned and the floors creak like mad. On the plus side, staff are very friendly, the bed was comfy and the breakfast was great. Can't comment on the evening meal... More

We booked with a couple of weeks notice to meet our daughter for Sunday lunch at the beginning of December. It was her birthday, and it was about half way between where we both live. The meal was very good, which we knew would be the case, as we done the same thing the year before. However, we had not... More

Went to the hotel for christmas dinner. Its beautiful building and the staff are super friendly and helpful. The food was very tastey and well presented with good choice but all the old people were moaning about the veg not being soft enough! We've been to a few events at the hotel and there are never enough staff on at... More

I attend the hotel regularly with a small group of friends and generally receive good service and enjoy good quality food even though the chef is catering for up to 20 people at any one time as well as catering for other hotel guests. I have also attended for party and wedding functions.The staff are friendly and helpful and this... More

My husband has already submitted a full and frank review of our stay at this hotel on Christmas night but I wanted to add my personal view too. I agree with his review mostly, but would say that I thought the decoration was fine. From a female point of view, although soap, shampoo, shower gel etc were provided, there was... More

The trouble with eating out on Christmas day is that if you are the driver you MUST remain sober, and lets face it who wants to stay stone cold sober on Christmas day well neither my wife or I for sure so we decided to have lunch and stay over for the night. The Christmas dinner was "OK" nothing brilliant,... More

Stayed here for a wedding down the road. The staff were very friendly on arrival and sorted out our taxi to the wedding. The room was a real let down. Everything creaked or banged when you went near it. You could hear everything in the corridor and upstairs. When the heating came on during the night, the pipes would bang... More

We recently got married at the Donington Manor Hotel and it was that good I felt I had to say something about it. In the lucrative world of weddings, if you are not so lucky as to have family members who can contribute to the cost of your big day, then you know how financially challenging paying for a wedding...
