Attending an event at the racetrack, me and my colleague Abdul stayed the one night. My room was large and a very comfy bed. Staff were lovely and helpful. Evening meal - salt & pepper squid was superb. I then had the pork in apple cider. A bit sweet but beautifully cooked pork. Breakfast was top notch. No idea about... More

Thank you so much for taking the time to leave your lovely review. Our staff all work very hard and care a great deal, so it is much appreciated when kind comments are made by our guests. Thanks to Abdul for his feedback too, that would be brilliant, but sadly no, we just have a slightly creaky, very lovable old... More

Nice place with lots of parking and possible to walk to Donnington circuit. Staff very helpful and friendly. The evening meal was really good with lots of local produce being used. Breakfast was really good and set us up for the day.

We stayed here on a Thursday night, we were able to check in at 13.00 by prior arrangement, the room and breakfast for three was £130, expensive considering check out was by 10.30 the next morning. The room was nice but could have done with being a bit cleaner, cobwebs from the ceiling, stains on the bedside cabinets and the... More

I have no problem with this hotel, everything was clean as as it should be. However for whatever reason we paid £145 for a room and the cost didn't justify the experience or decor. That said the staff were very good but from experience I've stayed in twice the hotel, for half the price. NB No room service.

Jack S, Owner at Donington Park Farmhouse Hotel, responded to this review

Thank you for taking the time to feedback and more importantly for choosing to stay with us in the first place. £145 is our weekend double occupancy rate, including full breakfast. Locally weekends are busier than the week and so hotel prices are at their highest. Nonetheless I'm certain this price represents good value and that our product is of... More

Seemed very expensive for what you get. The staff were lovely and the breakfast very good but I've stayed in a lot better places for a lot less. The room was very spacious, seems a bit empty and the bathroom was outdated to be honest. Bed was comfy and the room was clean. I left my electric toothbrush by mistake... More

Dear Ben, We do in fact have your toothbrush (and toothpaste!) and I welcome you to get in touch to help us arrange returning it to you. I can only imagine that you rung before housekeeping had finished work and brought all of the lost property to reception (we do get a great deal). Thank you for your positive comments.... More

My niece had her wedding reception at this lovely place, although we have past it many times on way to airport it is the first time we have been in. The inside is very nicely decorated and in keeping with its original theme, we even had the meal in a modified pig stay, which couldn't have been nicer. I thought... More

Thank you so much for taking the time to share your good experience. I am sorry about the outside door of your bedroom; these can pick up dirty easily as they are external rather than being undercover however I will pass this feedback on to housekeeping. Thank you, Jack Shields Director More

We were mightily impressed with the venue after visiting for a friend's wedding last year. The staff were very friendly and attentive and made the day run very smoothly. We particularly liked the wedding "cake" made of cheese and the band with the fella with the washboard. Amazing fun with quality booze and food a plenty. I'd highly recommend here... More
