My wife and adult daughter shared a three bedded room in the newer part of the main hotel building. The room was excellent, large very well furnished and with a great view over the park in which the hotel is situated - a beautiful location with lots of woodland walks including to the 14th century Donnington Castle gatehouse; the surrounding golf course looked good, but, as non-golfers we could not comment. The bathroom was large and, again, excellent. The only criticism of the room is that, on a warm, humid night only two of the windows would open about 6 inches so it was too warm. The location meant there was no external noise at all - wonderfully peaceful!
We ate in the restaurant where the menu choices we preferred fell within the "specials" which ended at 6:00 pm; despite being later than this we were served with our choices which were freshly cooked, delicious, and great value. My only criticism is that the desserts were a little over-priced. The staff, both in the restaurant and reception were attentive, friendly and efficient. Breakfast was freshly cooked (no soggy bacon etc in a bain-marie) with high quality ingredients and an extensive cold buffet if this is preferred.
The overall experience was excellent and we would all thoroughly recommend this hotel.
