Decided to stay as attending a function at the same venue. The ground floor is good but elsewhere the decor appears tired and in need of updating, especially the carpets in the corridors. The shower was good but again, nowhere to put a towel by the hand basin in the bathroom. Excellent breakfast and the best coffee I have had... More

Spent one night at this hotel, the staff were absolutely fantastic, from reception, to bar to breakfast, they were efficient and very friendly. We didn't spend much time at the hotel as we were meeting friends for the afternoon/evening. We were allocated room 21 and for the price it was a decent size room, a little dated and the bathroom...

The hotel is very well signed and easy to find, especially when you have to arrive late. The personal is friendly and very helpful. Rooms are comfortable, clean and tidy. Breakfast is free of charge pending on the rates. Food quality is of high standards. One can g´have dinner a la carte if desired.

Ok so we had a groupon voucher but we still expected a good service. We had requested ham sandwiches when we booked due to dietary issues and this was written in the book. We did not get mainly ham and when we mentioned this we were asked to pay extra if we wanted more ham. The duty manager was extremely... More

Stayed here for a couple of nights while I attended a owners club rally at the nearby circuit. Did read the reviews before booking this hotel, as I always do but the good outweighed the bad so I booked.

I worked here on business for a couple of days and was not impressed. It felt a bit Heath Robinson in an old building that was tired and needs updating. Drafty conference room so people were cold, awful smells from the kitchen that participants complained about, cramped lounge/bar area especially when more than one group staying. Food seemed OK but... More

Donington Manor remains a focal point in the East Midlands and a great location to meet friends for business or food or both. 10 of us ate separately in our own dining room and had an excellent meal at good value for menu. Service was also excellent.
