Left this hotel after a surprise birthday trip for my husband feeling rather disappointed to be honest. Overall the hotel seemed rather run down and customer care wasn’t a priority. After arriving we for a drink in the bar and it took them over 30 mintutes to finall get my drink after we had finished our lunch and my husband had also finished his drink, they then realised they didn’t have the ingredients to make the cocktail I had ordered so was brought out something different. We then went to the spa but was never told by anyone we would need our robes and slippers from our room so had to go back and get them. Once signed in we went into the changing rooms where we then realised we were never given a locker key, so went back out and asked and was given attitude by the receptionist that we needed a locker key and we should have known this apparently. The pool was over crowded and didn’t get a sun lounger as people had left their towels on them. Children were also allowed to use the pool so didn’t make this very relaxing. Facilities were average. Booked in for a Discovery facial for both of us, being a salon owner myself I know what to expect had had many spa treatemnts before. The facial was very rushed and not much care taken at all. Certainly not worth the money. Had a three course dinner in the restaurant that evening, was very nice but not a huge variety to choose from. Bedroom was fine and bed was comfortable but was worked up at 8am with a leaf blower outside our room. Breakfast was a buffet, was nice and plenty to choose from. Overall I wouldn’t recommend or stay at this hotel again.

Donnington Valley Golf Club
The 9th and 18th greens are overlooked by the magnificent Snelsmore House, a Grade II listed Victorian House that doubles as the club house. The 6,353 yard layout follows the natural undulations of the landscape, featuring many intriguing and unusual holes guarded by towering trees and treacherous water hazards.
The front nine is the place to make a score because the most demanding holes are saved for last; the final four holes are heavily influenced by water, and are truly where tournaments and rounds are won or lost.
The proximity of the tremendous clubhouse at the end of each loop makes for a superb amphitheatre to welcome your comrades home during your golf break, corporate or society outing at Donnington Valley.
The highlight of the golf course is the monstrous 15th; nicknamed the ‘Big Dipper', it is well in excess of 600 yards, and requires 3 exceedingly good shots.
