The most awful place i have ever stayed at, we work around the derby area pretty frequently and have never before been asked to take our shoes off to go up to our rooms, we had work pants on and clean trainers? the indian guy was quite rude when I said I would not, and as we went upstairs the...

A few years ago this was a little gem. The owner - who some people have described as inebriated was not that at all. He was suffering from dementia I believe - and I think he had been the driving force behind the business and it's demise reflected his own. We were last there for a take away in Sept... More

We were received graciously and courteously by friendly Manager. Rooms were very comfortable and well appointed. Nothing was too much trouble and we found ourselves trusted in the property on our last night. Food... WOW!. You pick the dish then state the heat ratio you want. Genuine indian cuisine with a difference and such good quality. Staff were not stand... More

Possibly the most courteous greeting I have ever encountered. 'Welcome to the Melbourne Arms Mr.Jayne. Did you have a good trip?'. OK, as it transpired I was actually the only one staying there on that Thursday evening, but nevertheless it made a refreshing change. This was 'Jay', an Indian gentleman who had worked at the hotel for 22 years and... More

I stayed there several times a few years ago coming from Spain, when we use to work with Toyota UK that is only a few miles away. The rooms were quite good, but the food, ummm the food it was fabulous. I will always remember the food and the very nice owner.

I was spectating at the Donington Park race circuit and decided on an overnight stay. A nice large CCTV scanned car park, a beer garden and amusement area for the kids which is great. A nice friendly welcome at reception, shown to my room too. The room was small, but adequate for my needs for overnight accommodation. Complimentary toiletries which... More

Booked this place for an overnight stay whilst at Donington Park as it is only 10minutes away. We didn't eat there but had asked via our booking agent if an early breakfast would be possible, this was not even acknowledged by the staff and we were told breakfast was 9 until 10. Not much use when you need to be... More
