I was spectating at the Donington Park race circuit and decided on an overnight stay. A nice large CCTV scanned car park, a beer garden and amusement area for the kids which is great. A nice friendly welcome at reception, shown to my room too. The room was small, but adequate for my needs for overnight accommodation. Complimentary toiletries which... More

Booked this place for an overnight stay whilst at Donington Park as it is only 10minutes away. We didn't eat there but had asked via our booking agent if an early breakfast would be possible, this was not even acknowledged by the staff and we were told breakfast was 9 until 10. Not much use when you need to be... More

Stayed here for just one night for our friends wedding at the Coopers Arms in Weston. Couldn't fault the place for the price. Friendly staff, great service, nice room and lovely food. The beer garden is nice too if you're lucky enough to pick a sunny day.

Stayed here last week whilst working nearby. The rooms were accommodating and very clean. Frequented the bar and restaurant on 3 occasions and was greeted by the coolest and most welcoming owner of a business you can meet. Great company (and still owes me a beer) talked for hours. The food was fabulous and served by the most professional guys.... More

I stayed last weekend at The Melbourne Arms in Melbourne near Donnington Race Circuit. I was welcomed by the 76 year old owner Mr Kumar, a true Indian gentleman from the Punjab. He is a real character and his Indian restaurant is truly fab. Living in east London I am spoilt by 1st class Indian restaurants but most are run... More

Stopped at the Melbourne Arms for an overnight stay before a race day at the Donnington race circuit. This Indian Restaurant/Hotel is a great place for a short stay. Nice people, clean and friendly. The full English breakfast sets you up for the day.

Stayed here with my wife for 1 night, whilst attending a birthday dinner in. Melbourne. Although this looks like a pub - and sort of is one - it is mainly an Indian restaurant. There is a very large car park, which was pretty well deserted for the 24 hours of our stay. The manager was very welcoming and showed... More

After seeing some of the reviews on here, I was not expecting a great stay. But the room was reasonably clean, snug, but perfectly adequate for one. My only criticisms would be that the curtains could really do with being a lot thicker, and breakfast finishing before 8am is a little early. I will review the pub/restaurant separately.
