“Exceeded expectations”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2014

We arrived quite late to check in and were greeted by a very friendly receptionist called Stacey. We had a few difficulties in finding you and we called ahead and she gave us directions and was very helpful. More hotels should employ staff like this. Well presented and smiley and a pleasure to deal with.
The morning staff were also very polite and accommodating too. Good location, food in the neighbouring diner was not 100% keen on but it was a short stay to break up a very long journey. Would recommend.

A hotel that is an integral part of a small A50 service station which was showing its age. However in general the rooms were very well presented and clean on arrival. Unfortunately at no point during our three night stay was the room cleaned by the time we returned.
This hotel is more suited to 1 night stays than a weekend break.

We stayed here for one night, with two rooms - a family room and a double room. Even though it was next to the main road, both rooms were quiet at night. They were comfortable, well stocked with tea, soaps, towels etc, great showers (!) and a lot of space in the rooms. The staff were lovely, reception were friendly and cleaning team were great - they gave us extra tea/biccies etc (!) and even gave us directions to a great pub for us to have tea nearby (I think it was called New Inn and did great, home-made food) - with a printed map and everything for us!
What a lovely stay in a handy location. We would stay again.

The room was neat and tidy and very practical for an overnight stay. The staff were friendly and helpful. However the occupant in the room above us was walking across the floor on and off all night, which due to the poor sound proofing, meant we were disturbed all night. Also the mattress on the double bed sloped into the middle making sleeping very difficult. Finally the noise from the Main A50 was evident and contributed to the poor night's sleep.

The rooms are good, and the relation quality/price is fantastic. The negative aspect is the location, as it is on a highway and the there is only one access from the lanes that go in one direction, not the other, so you have to travel a long way along that lane before being able to change direction. It is isolated, nothing near.

Hotel was just about adequate - room was dated and needed refurbishment. Shower didn't work properly. I certainly wouldn't pay £49.99 to stay at Days Inn in Donington. The quality of the food at the food outlet was extremely poor and expensive.
