My friend and I stayed here for our annual trip away and had a lovely time. We got a deal that got us a treatment, dinner, bed and breakfast. We arrived in the afternoon and took full advantage of the spa area. The swimming pool is lovely to swim in and a nice size. They have plenty of loungers round... More

We had a weekend break with friends. The hotel is large enough without being overbearing. There are lovely cosy areas to relax in. They had just had 2 consecutive wedding receptions, so was a bit busy, but the reception staff were very friendly and helpful. The spa area is the best we have been to so far. The steam Room...

Enjoyed a lovely spa day with my daughter. The staff are friendly and helpful, the Bento box lunch tasty and the fruit smoothie lovely. The facial treatment was very relaxing and the spa area was peaceful. Would definitely recommend and would love to return.

It is a very convenient hotel for business. The service is correct, rooms are clean, rooms have nough space and the area is quiet.

My wife and I stayed here last weekend, two nights (Friday and Saturday), check-in was fast and efficient the girls on reception were friendly and made us feel very welcome. Our room was on the ground floor, beautifully decorated and spotlessly clean. We had dinner reservations for Friday evening, although there was a wedding party going on the public area... More

We booked a Zoo travel deal for 1 night. we arrived a little early (1 hour) for check-in and were told to return later as there had been 'lots of conferences so rooms weren't ready'. Returned later and told to wait as building works causing delays - get your stories right!, Told to keep checking back as no guarantee for... More

Donnington valley is a really beautiful hotel with great views, particularly liked the artworks around the place. Our room was ready when we arrived and was lovely with patio doors out to the garden. Afternoon tea was included with our deal and we sat outside to eat it . It was really good , plenty of food and so tasty... More

We came for an anniversary weekend away. It was a relaxing break but definitely not a 4 star hotel. Our EXECUTIVE ROOM was poor by comparison with other hotels: a broken blind at the window (sliding door); brown spill marks on the carpet; and INSTANT COFFEE - seriously? In other executive rooms we have had either our own filter coffee... More

My reviews are always linked to the price paid!! Stayed here recently whilst on business in the summer months. Rooms are always immaculate and place has a nice little leisure Centre on hand. Had a quick burger in the bar and was pretty damn fine at that level - never ate in the restaurant in the evening. The breakfast was... More

Stayed here 9 - 11 Aug on business trip. Booked direct with the hotel website and got a much better deal rather then on line sites. Only thing to note: they quote a late room deal at £90 per night at room only. However I booked the slightly more expensive one including wifi and use of the spa. Well rather... More
