Good parking, very nice location. Spa/pool area is lovely. Communal areas nice and staff very friendly and helpful. Unfortunately the bedroom was poor. Cobwebs, dirty window sills, wc was yuck (brown rusty marks or something) and bathroom could do with an upgrade. Disappointing in terms of what I would expect.

I have stayed at Donnington many times. The staff were excellent, however my room left a lot to be desired this was the most iv paid for a room and it was the worst room iv stayed in Room 301 friends of our stayed in the same room two years ago and received a free weekend due the the poor condition shower not cleaned properly. It is near the lift so you here it all through the night small and cramped warning signs on the eves in case you hit your head its just not a good room . I feel if you get this room it should be a reduced rate. Eight of us stay there every year they all had nicer rooms and two of them paid less money not a happy customer this year.

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service
The decor was pleasant. The jacuzzi wasn’t working which was a big disappointment. The toilet was hard to flush. Breakfast could have more hot food like sausages beans mushrooms etc.
