Popped in just for a night whilst on a long trip. On arrival the service was brilliant with friendly and helpful staff. Great location and easy to find as it is well sign posted. Beautiful rooms, excellent food and a lovely bar (sitting in front of a roaring fire as I write this). I was happily surprised to find how... More

We went to wedding here. The food was nice but was meant to be a bbq but not a bbq. The main part of the party was to dance the night away with my friend the bride and the music wasn't loud even at the loudest setting. The cable that was provided was cracking and cutting out the music it... More

Thank you for your feedback. I will not go into to the specifics as I have covered these in my response to the Bride's review below. As you mention we have spoken to your friend offline. Then, as now, I offer my sincere apologies and if there remains anything I can do to lessen her disappointment I welcome a telephone... More

I went to an evening function in the barn conversion. Firstly the food! We had opted for a 'collect you own' meal with no waiting staff. the food (that we had pre-ordered) was fantastic. There was lots of passing plates round and everyone thought theirs was best. The staff quickly cleared the main course plates which was a pleasant surprise... More

Dear Suze, Thank you so much for your kind words. I'm glad to read that you enjoyed the food and our relaxed style of service. The Barn is a great setting for LARP events and they're always really good fun from our perspective. I appreciate your feedback on the bar prices. These will never be as cheap as a pub... More

We live locally but first time at the farmhouse after my wife saw their advert online. Her and I had valentines dinner here followed by a night in the hotel and it was a fantastic evening. The room was lit by candles and a wood fire so a really romantic mood. Our table wobbled when we sat and the manager... More

I had a wedding party here,and although the barn looked beautiful after I decorated it and the food was lovely the quality in other areas was lacking to say the least. The juke box is not good quality kept jumping and when we plugged my iPod in for our first dance that too kept crackling( they tried to blame my... More

Dear Kim, I wholeheartedly apologise that you left feeling disappointed that Saturday afternoon. I'm also sorry that you feel our manager's email to you didn't communicate this, as was her intention. The juke box is free to use and doesn't compare to the volume of a DJ but most parties find it loud enough to dance to. The crackling problem... More

Requiring a regular place to stay whilst I worked in this area. The Donington Park farmhouse hotel, fitted the bill perfectly. I have stayed in over 4 different rooms in the last month, each one clean, well appointed and with really comfortable beds. The main building has an open fire and a warm reception from the lovely staff.

Loved my stay here! I was attending a function and the staff were so kind and helpful, incredibly friendly and accomodating after my long drive! Surprised at the size of my room for the price and also the beautiful view! Very happy, would love to come back if I'm ever in the area again! Thanks

We stayed here on the 29th of December for a friends wedding, I contacted the hotel previous and they allocated us a discount as per the wedding party agreement. The check in was speedy and efficient, we where allocated a room on the first floor which was large, comfortable with all the amenities required. The room was slightly dated but... More

Stayed here a couple of nights and had a great time. It is very much a family run affair with an emphasis on local food. We had a couple of really nice meals in the restaurants. It is an old farm next to the race track now converted to handle all manner of events. A colleague had been to a... More
