Room allocated was in a lodge some distance from the main hotel. The distance did not matter to us but the access (after first arriving round the back, by car) was across grass and down a bit of a slope. Not good or safe in heels and was not lit well. In fact there was a power cut in the... More

Although the setting and main house look lovely the rooms in back of the lakeside annex are too hot and Windows on ground floor( with no view )when opened would be easy for someone to climb into so as 4 ladies/ young ladies we didn't feel secure opening them; the rooms at the front side looked like they had a...

We stayed here after a wedding & it was a beautiful setting with the river, golf grounds & the Canada geese. We had a room in the 'Summerhouse' with a lovely view of the river & it was very spacious with a small 'conservatory' seating area on entry. While we parked just off the main road in, we later found... More

Very disappointed! Service was slow and lacked enthusiasm. The atmosphere was ruined by the fact we shared a room with people eating roast dinners. You do not wish to be smelling sprouts when being served tea and cakes! The room setting felt like a back street cafe. We weren't offered more tea, only one scone served with mediocre cakes and...

Arrived at the hotel because clearly signposted. We were a little early so went for a coffee in the bar restaurant before signing in. Bar staff were both efficient and welcoming as were other staff when we signed in. Our room was lovely, clean and fresh. The bed both comfortable and sufficient linen, towels etc. Coffee, tea facilities plentiful although... More

Greta value for money, and good golf course. Breakfast was of a good standard for a three star also. Room was ample size, toiletries were of good standard. Lunch was ok, but really good value for money. I'd go again in an instance. Dan

My partner and I got married on Wednesday, it was a very small wedding so we took family and friends to Donnington Grove for afternoon tea, it was a great day with beautiful surroundings. The afternoon tea was good the only thing I will say is it could have done with a few more sandwiches but apart from that it... More

Fantastic ! Organised a reunion for 17 people - the lunch table beautifully laid out in a gorgeous dedicated room, place names with preordered menu choices so that everyone was served immediately with correct food - all reported that their food was delicious. A STUNNING venue (look at the website) - amazing building in spectacular grounds next to a river... More

We arrived late due to our flight being delayed from Bali, all I can say is how amazing we were treated by Nigel (GM) and his lovely receptionist. My wife was delighted as it was our wedding anniversary!!!!!! Thank you, would highly recommend.

Beautiful surroundings and building, we stayed in one of the summer house rooms which overlooked the lake. Room was huge ! Bathroom lovely all very clean . The food was to die for like a top quality restaurant . Bar could do with tidying up but it was fine for us . Would 100% recommend this hotel !!
