We stayed one night at the Melbourne View Hotel this weekend (Room 10) after visiting the Grand Prix Collection at Donnington. The owner Sally was very Welcoming and nothing was to much trouble for her. Our room was up stairs, was very large, beautifully presented and very warm. We ate our evening meal at the hotel which was excellent home...

Stayed at the Melbourne View hotel in November for a friend's wedding. The hotel is situated at the western side of Donington Park Race Circuit and is close to a lot of the major motorways and is not far from East Midlands airport. The venue is surrounded by lovely east Midlands countryside. The hotel itself is decent enough. We stayed...

Only stayed one night while attending a car event at Donnington Circuit, and could not fault it. Owner Sally was a very welcoming and happy host, who gave us some useful advice and directions of places we needed to go. I wanted to clean my car for the next day and there was a hose available to do that, don't...

Me and my fiance recently stayed at this beautiful hotel while we were attending a wedding down the road. I can easily say that this was one of the best, if not the best, hotel I have been to. I found that the rooms and atmosphere were lovely and welcoming and would definitely stay again.

Thank you for your lovely review. We all try very hard to provide the best service we can in what is a small family run establishment. It's good to hear you enjoyed your stay and felt it was value for money and the rooms provided every thing you needed. Thank you again

Stopped here recently for a wedding. As others have said the grounds are beautiful, it's a shame that can not be said about the rooms. They look tired and out dated. The main problem was the shower, this was held on by a black plastic tie. You couldn't adjust it and it kept falling off. When your paying £90.00 for...

A great place to stay, always use Sally and the Melbourne view when coming up from cornwall and going to Donington for a Trackday. The place has changed over the years and has got better each time.
