Called for Sunday dinner last week. The hotel is so in need of a face lift. No furniture matches, wallpaper is ripped and a fresh coat of paint is needed. That said the food was really nice. I enjoyed Sunday lunch so well done the chef.

Stayed at this hotel overnight having booked the dinner, bed and breakfast package. On arrival we were told that as the hotel was quiet we were being upgraded to a suite which we thought was nice of them. It was a large suite with an outdoor terrace area through some patio doors. A few elements in the room weren't great,... More

I arranged booking for three couples and single for pre wedding get together with friends as the hotel was ideally located for the wedding the next day. Situated in the centre of small town. We had three superior rooms all of which were excellent in terms of size and facilities. The single room should however be avoided, with broken fittings... More

Had a night here on business, strangest reception area I have ever seen - the whole building has a type of "Coaching Inn" feeling and has a quaint olde worlde feel to it - great for the foreign tourists, I guess but a shade old hat for the business journeymen. My room was at the back and required negotiation of... More

First impressions are that it has a decent sized car park, but you may need a 4X4 to drive through it. Access to reception requires you to wade through piles of cigarette butts and up some steps, I didnt see anyone smoking and they were still there 5 days after we arrived. Its hit and miss with the reception staff,... More

This friendly hotel in the small town of Castle Donington has served local people and visitors for many years and still provides some good facilities and service for functions but would benefit from a refurbishment as others have commented.

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
