We held our wedding here this weekend and everything from start to finish was perfect. Sally was amazing from the moment we enquired about holding our wedding here up until today when we collected a few last bits and bobs. Unlike so many wedding venues Sally makes sure that the day is all about you and ensures that your day... More

Hi Nicola, thanks for taking the time to leave the hotel a review. Your wedding was one of the easiest we've done, it was relaxed, informal and everyone who attended was lovely. It makes a huge difference when the guests are as nice as the bride and groom. Thanks again.... More

I wanted to write a review for Sally and Melbourne View after holding our wedding here on the 10th April 2015. From start to finish we have nothing but praise for Melbourne View. The guests were all able to check in ahead of the wedding which helped everyone stay relaxed. The hotel offered every assistance possible to one of our... More

Hi Heather, thank you for leaving a lovely review. It was a lovely day, the weather was very kind and certainly for the most part, the day was perfect. It's true what they say we can pick our friends but not our relatives and the once they have a drink - well I found out to my cost just how... More

Thank you for leaving us a lovely review. As you saw there is plenty of room for storage so it's no problem letting guests use the garage to park their valuable bikes and trailors. It was a beautiful weekend and I can only apologise for the noisy guests who did not seem to appreciate their surroundings and were oblivious to... More

This is a great hotel with a very relaxed, comfortable yet professional atmosphere, Sally the owner/manager cannot do enough for you. The hotel has the feel of a friendly guest house, without feeling like your in someone's house, as the family home is a separate building. The location is perfect for events at Donnington as you could easily walk there,... More

Heather, thank you for taking the time to leave us such a lovely review. Given the time of year it turned out to be dry and enabled you to have your photo's outside although it was cold! It was a great day and a fantastic party. Hope you enjoyed your honeymoon in Mauritius and thanks again Sally More

Spent a night here on 5.2.15 with a couple of colleagues as we were on a training course for two days. The hotel was very clean, rooms spacious with en-suite shower and comfortable bed, the main thing which made this hotel so nice was Sally the manager, she advised us of a nice place to get an evening meal and...

What a wonderfully friendly hotel, amazing hospitality in all respects, attention to guests requests etc. Easy to find from East Midlands airport, so good place to stay for an early flight. Location with good views over countryside. Owners very receptive to requests

We went here for a wedding. Whilst the wedding itself was lovely, there were many things that could be improved with the venue itself. The hotel was clean, however it lacks atmosphere and feels very impersonal. During the evening of the wedding, the manager sat by the bar with a friend, watching the proceedings, which felt somewhat uncomfortable. Why not... More

Reviews like this one are particularly disappointing as most of your criticisms are unfair and could have been rectified had we known at the time that you had a problem. As the owner I deal with most of the face to face communication within the hotel and am very much hands on as you will see from most of our... More
