“Lovely weekend”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 19, 2013

Had a lovely weekend at the Donnington Vally Hotel and Spa, brilliant service all round, great breakfast and a perfect little spa to relax in. We will be visiting again in the summer and I can't wait!!!

I would like to say a big Thankyou to all at the Donnington Valley Hotel, we have just returned from a great weekend getaway, Whilst my friend and I enjoyed two fantastic rounds of golf at the on site course,The girls were delighted with the spa and facilities, Our evening meal and breakfast was first class, our rooms were fresh clean and well appointed , To be fair we came here last year and really enjoyed it, so much so we thought we would give it another go, so glad we did as it was even better, if your looking for a quick break that has something for everyone ,At a fair price,This is the place for you !!!

Had lunch in the Wine Press for our wedding anniversary. Food was really good apart from the gravy which was watery and lacking in flavour. Told the staff it was our anniversary and had happy anniversary piped on our cheese plates - nice touch. Staff very attentive but smiles were noticeably lacking. This is a 4 star establishment but they were unable to give me Armagnac with my coffee and the cognac was not served in a brandy balloon!!

Nice place to stay for business. Rooms spacious and always very clean. Gym is surprisingly good for a hotel of this type. Staff always very nice, although check out can be slow. Room service food is quite limited.

Stayed January 2013, traveled on business

Very clean hotel. Extremely pleasant staff on reception, in the bar and in the restaurant. Did not use the spa. The bedroom was very spacious, lots of hanging space and shelves and drawers, and the bathroom had a bath with shower as well as a separate shower cubicle. The bed was extremely comfortable.

Room spacious and clean with a big bathroom complete with bath and separate shower. A fantastically comfortable bed. Difficult to get TV to work and it has been placed so you cannot watch it from the bed. (Possibly not a problem for others) I could not get any radio channels. Surely this is not too much to ask?Room service was just fine , served by charming staff, and on one of mornings of my stay, a young waiter gracefully sorted out my own mistake with the breakfast order. Wonderful. I do though like to have a magnifying mirror in the bathroom. Easy enough for an hotel to put in. Also, I had two lights, one a standard and the desk light that did not work! Housekeeping should check this. Would have been nice if when I called to reception from my room, someone answered. I had to use my mobile to call the hotel!!

Room Tip: Ask for first floor or above facing the golf course. Some bedrooms are ground floor.

The hotel and surroundings look lovely - we only went for a light lunch - but service in the bar was poor and the food terrible. The food was nicely presented, but was luke warm and over-cooked and expensive. Hard to recommend it.
