“Nice&very friendly.”
Reviewed 10 July 2014

Stayed here for one night in order to visit the Donington Race track, which is very close. The hotel's very nice, the landscape is beautiful, but most of all Sally manages to give the place a very homy feel away from home. Even though I am not sure I'll be back to this area, if I do, I'll certainly stay here agin.

Stayed over the Download weekend for the second year and thoroughly enjoyed our visit camping in the meadow behind the hotel whilst using all the facilities.

As ever, welcome is warm and friendly and Sally and the staff do a fantastic job looking after all guests with a lovely personal touch that made us feel like we were staying with extended family.

The impromptu arrangements for the footy in the bar on Sat we're brilliant and despite the poor result we all collectively drowned our sorrows and took it on the chin philisophically :-)

Breakfasts were excellent with fresh produce a good thick back bacon and runny eggs and all in a relaxed and unhurried atmosphere.

To have such a retreat away from the chaos and mayhem that is the main arena campsites is a blessing - we shall return no doubt. Keep up the good work Sally and team!

Room Tip: N/a - we were camping !

Stayed there on Donnington Download weekend so obviously very busy anyway, Camped for 3 days for a really reasonable £50. Was impressed with the level of care Sally took in greeting each guest and I rarely saw here stand still let alone sit down the whole weekend. The premises are really nice, the bar is well stocked and the food is good, it is a five minute walk to the donnington racetrack.

From the moment we visited the Hotel and met Sally, it felt right for us to hold our whole special day there. Lovely, clean hotel with lovely staff. Beautiful surrounding views too. Lovely food and drink . Our whole day flowed so smoothly. I would so recommend this hotel without any hesitation!!!! The only negative i can think of is that the day was over!!!!

Thank you for leaving us such a positive review. It was an amazing day with everything coming together effortlessly. A laid back approach to the day also helped as did the gloriously unexpected weather!

This hotel is superb. From the greeting on arrival to the parting goodbye, the stay was first rate. The staff were attentive and helpful and the wedding arrangements were executed faultlessly. We stayed as parents of the groom and we are always apprehensive as we are disabled but we need not have worried. Dedicated parking and ramps made access straightforward. The room was designed as an accessible room with walk in shower and plenty of room for a wheelchair. The breakfast is second to none with a great choice of cereals, juices, toast, preserves, tea, coffee, milk and a choice of cooked breakfast - even vegetarian. Sally was superb. Despite the challenge of a large wedding party she remained cheerful and her staff reflected this too. All in all, a superb hotel.

Our disabled facilities have their limitations, the hotel was built before the legislation came in and there are aspects that cannot be altered safely. However, we have tried very hard to make them as good as they can be and it's good to know they worked for you. It was a great wedding and I'm glad you found the staff attentive to your needs. Many thanks for taking the time to leave us this lovely review. It is appreciated.

Stayed here for the WSB weekend. We both really enjoyed our stay
Nice room (No.8) clean with a large en-suite. Good choices of tea and coffee everything that any big chain hotel supplies and more.
The food was excellent and a hugh well stocked bar. Breakfast was one of best we have had in a hotel really really good.
Best of all the hotel along with Sally and her lovely staff make you feel at home straight away and the layout of the lounge bar and restaurant areas encourage people to chat to each other. We have come away having met and made new friends. We hope to stay at Melbourne View again in the future. Well done Sally and team you run a great hotel. Loved it.
