Very nice break room very clean rooms.We were in the main building no lifts so specify if you have any member of your party who cannot do stairs easily as we had three flights to walk up. Overall enjoyable but very quite and nothing to do in the bar a few board games might be an idea. Staff very helpful...

Just returned from a fabulous break through travel zoo at this gem of a hotel. Impressive from the moment you enter the long winding drive. We stayed in room 7 which overlooked the lake. Well-equipped, Modern, large and suitable for disabled guests with a very large wet room. The hotel itself is charming and quirky with a period feel. Staff...

We recently stayed at Donnington Grove on a TravelZoo deal which was brilliant value for money. The staff are great, they can't do enough for you and all with a smile on their faces. The hotel is set in 550 acres which has been turned into a Golf Course but you don't have to play golf to appreciate this hotel....

Having seen the hotel has average 4 out of 5 stars i had hopes. So disappointed. Very much at the bottom of hotels in Newbury in my opinion and i have stayed at most of them. Lacks soul, very limited room service menu, and staff permanently out of breath on the phone like they have been running themselves ragged.

Stayed one night in room 303 - top of the turret. Our bedroom had four bay windows overlooking the beautiful lake and grounds. The sunrise through the trees was magical. We strolled through the grounds of the hotel to reach the Watermill Theatre and enjoyed a performance of Sleeping Beauty. It was all very special and we will not hesitate...

10 of us stayed overnight, great weekend and good vale for money !!! Rooms are very large and comfortable. Fair to say not most modern of rooms, but still has everything you could possibly need. Food is pretty good, breakfast especially. Golf course was superb for November and is a good challenge and the greens were superb. Only slight issue...

When we arrived we were really happy - the hotel was in lively grounds and it looked like a castle. However inside it's like a rabbit warren. We went to the bar (which i expected to be cosy) but it was really brightly lit, bland with no frills or charm. We had booked a table in the restaurant but it...

This hotel was mightily disappointing. Worn out decor. Rooms large but again shabby. Dinner well did not eat my starter of a duck salad as the duck smelled off...breakfast very disappointing...would not stay here again. Nothing wrong with the service . This place has no soul and is in need of a major renovation.
