The hotel is close to Donnington Park and East Midlands Airport, both of which provide their own brand of noise but I guess that if you go to this hotel, you would be aware of this. The gardens and the views of the countryside are beautiful and there is plenty of parking. We didn't stay in the hotel but can...

Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review. We are very close to Donington Park and only three miles from the airport so there is some noise. The views are lovely and it's nice to hear that the work in keeping the gardens well maintained is appreciated. The bar space is limited so it's difficult to put...

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...

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...
