Me and my wife had our wedding reception here on Thursday and it was unbelievable day and night! The farmhouse staff and organisation didn't let us down and they made sure our day was as perfect as could be for us! Food was delicious both for wedding breakfast and evening reception! Beautiful venue with beautiful surrounding scenery. Our friend has... More

We went to a friends wedding here, it is a brilliant rustic wedding venue. However, the bedrooms are so overpriced!! When spending £130+ for a night you expect a decent nights sleep, not old mattresses, lumpy pillows and old lumpy duvets in dowdy rooms. The rooms are very very basic, I have stayed in nicer Premier Inns and Travel Lodges.... More

Dear Lisa, Having looked at our reservations from February I cannot find a booking under your name; perhaps it was booked under a different name. I looked because I wanted to understand what could possibly have gone wrong with your stay for you to have written such a distorted review. Something has clearly tainted your perception and led you to... More

My partner and I stayed here while I attended Donington Park Raceway for a track day. It is literally a stones throw away from the circuit. The staff, accommodation and food were all great. A lovely retreat with wonderful rooms. Would definitely recommend and stay again.

The venue for the wedding was beautiful and the wedding itself was absolutely stunning but this was all decorated by the bride and groom so I wouldn't expect anything less. However, my partner and I spent £130 for a big standard room to stay in which was separate from the main party area. The carpets seemed dirty, dirty enough that... More

Dear Nadia, I'm very sorry that you were dissatisfied with your stay. Like anywhere, there are rare occasions when we have technical problems which we cannot resolve there and then and I'm sorry this occurred during your stay. I hope that the money returned to you went some way to compensate for the inconvenience. I believe my colleague meant that... More

My wife and I got married at Donington Park Farmhouse a few weeks ago and cannot rate the venue or the staff highly enough. Throughout our planning process the Events team Emma and Shelley were always on hand to answer any of our questions, and were quick to respond. There were no hidden costs, and they gave us great advice... More

We had our wedding here in June this year and everything from start to finish was just fantastic. The venue is amazing, the staff were so helpful and are a huge credit to the hotel.

The hotel is nice. Room is big and .... quiet. It is located a bit in the middle of nowhere, so going out for diner will be at least a 15 min drive. I decided to try the hotel kitchen and I whish I hadn't. The food is not bad, but is far below the standard you would imagine for... More

Thank you for the positive review and for choosing to stay with us. There are several good restaurants within 5 minutes drive in Castle Donington and Melbourne - please do ask if you stay with us again. Our food is lovingly homemade and always tasty but you're right, it's not posh! Thank you, Jack More

This hotel has a large campsite and it's perfect for tents and carvans. They have toilets and hot showers (1 pound a go) on the campsite. It's in a beautiful green area of England. In the evebing you can go to the hotel's bar and have a hot meal. I'll definitely be back.
