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

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
