Newport, United Kingdom
Reviewed 23 August 2016

Lovely place, golf course excellent, pro-shop staff extremely friendly and helpful, receptionist (Donna) was very accommodating. Andrea and barman in restaurant and bar superb after evening meal wasn't up to expected standard but dealt with efficiently. Excellent room beautiful views over lake (Room 103). Very relaxing break with lovely grounds.

We were lucky enough to indulge in a great deal of 2 nights in one of their "Lakeview rooms" even though the trees pretty much obscured the lake; it was none the less a lovely view when you walked to the main house for dinner and breakfast (just a few minutes walk long the main drive up ti the house)....

A Donnington Grove Hotel you step straight away in to a more relaxed world, a bit like going back to the days without a stressful day :-) stayed in a room in one of the nearby cottage next to the Mansion. Nice room with good atmosphere. Super friendly staff and it is a place to return to.

A good holiday golf standard course. The hotel is fine and the food and facilities were all good. You might need to make an appointment for check out if there is a reasonable number of you as it does not seem to happen quickly. Otherwise perfectly acceptable.

Driving up the drive definitely had the wow factor - it's a beautiful setting. Our welcome was very warm, and we were shown to our room on the first floor in the main building, but due to the slope the hotel is built on, it actually turned out to be floor higher when looking out of the window. We were...

Slightly unusual place. No prior booking info. Not in main hotel but in small cottage. Private and quiet bit silly to have underfloor wet room heating full chat in August. Sweat box. Breakfast busy and although properly staffed slightly disorganised with long waits for basics like butter and toast. Sausages excellent. Also coffee. £3 credit card surcharge means securing room...
