We had a wonderful time at the Donoho Hotel. Such a beautiful setting and amazing history. The food was beyond delicious and we are looking forward to a return trip! The hotel is in a beautiful setting and all of the employees were so helpful and friendly.

Our accommodations were so comfortable, extremely clean and decorated so nicely. The food was spectacular and the setting is full of true southern charm. My girlfriends...

My husband and I stayed our first night of a 4 day road trip to KY. We stayed in Room #3, on the outside veranda on the first floor. It had a full-size comfy bed and an electric fireplace - warm and cozy on a cool evening! We slept very well and was comfortable! The next morning, we had a...

We had never experienced the Donoho Hotel before tonight. 16 of us were in our party. The Donoho is an older establishment, with rustic charm. The setting is casual with an old country flair. The dinning area is informal. The food was exceptional! The atmosphere is family style, as the food is brought out one-at-a time, and passed around to...

We had our employee Christmas dinner here and the food was amazing! Delicious home cooking at its best. Chicken, roast beef, country ham, potatoes, green beans, fried apples, corn, and rolls. The delicious desserts were peach cobbler or pecan pie but some guests asked for, and received, both which I thought was a very nice gesture from the owner. The...

Had been there as just us for our Anniversary and told our friends about it. So we planned a trip for Halloween weekend and stayed 2 nights here before going on to another hotel here for a ghost hunt. The 2 nights here were great. Relaxing and great food. Look forward to coming back

We really enjoyed our stay here. Lots of history in this old building. The hotel was decked out for Christmas and made for a great stay. Very clean rooms with comfortable beds and a plentiful but not fancy breakfast. Dinner was not served the night we stayed, although other guests said it is always good.

Very unique place to stay ... Upstairs balcony was nice place to sit and the food was awesome. You don't want to miss that dinner bell! We stayed in room 28 upstairs at the end ... Nice accommodations and newly remodeled.

Thank Doug K
