Great venue to meet friends & colleagues. Staff could be a little more attentive,but some try harder than others. Gold course is very popular so be shure to book it in advance

Absolutely flaming livid. I have a chronic form of leukaemia and have been living with it for six years. Because of the treatment, that manages it well, I suffer from fatigue, stiff and painful joints. So my wife booked a spa day. It was going to be a massage, but for some extra we could enjoy the whole day together... More

Second meal paté starter was inedible and main very average. This week's was good, tasty and satisfying. Not a great hit rate and DV definitely goes through phases. Plainer food... More

Spa nice enough, pool is tiny, lunch a let down to the point it made me think I wouldn't try the restaurant in the evening. Aromatherapy massage was out of the world though spa receptionist upstairs was very cold and unfriendly.

Christmas dinner/disco. Over priced drinks and no wine coolers in the bar. Luke warm soup, brussel sprouts like bullets, one tiny pig in blanket (all also luke warm). Disco OK but not a great package overall for the price!

We stayed here for a weekend break away. Food in the restaurant was very good and although spa facilities were on the basic side all in all the package we received was great value and would definitely stay again.

A mixed review sadly. My partner and I were booked into the spa for some treatments at donnington valley. This in itself was a complete nightmare to book. Confusion all round as I had a voucher. I had to make 4 phone calls to arrange and each time I called was told a different story. When we arrived they had... More
