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.

The 111 outstanding bedrooms are fitted with the best contemporary furnishings, including lap-top sized safes, fridges, satellite television, Egyptian cotton bed linen and Italian marble bathrooms.

For even more luxury, the hotel's executive rooms are more spacious still, and feature luxury bonuses such as a comfortable seating area and plasma screen TVs, while the range of suites caters for any special occasion.

For business travellers and corporate outings, Donnington Valley has 12 purpose-built conference rooms, equipped to welcome up to 150 delegates. With unrivalled spa and leisure facilities, the superb hotel is perfectly equipped to cater for all requirements, and is ideal for golfers looking to be pampered after a day on the links.

The recently completed Health Club and Spa is an outstanding facility, equipped for the ultimate in health and beauty therapy. The complex includes an 18-metre lap pool, state-of-the-art gym, steam room, sauna, aromatherapy room and a monsoon shower, while the extensive relaxation area includes a sun terrace. The Spa is supported by first class product lines by Clarins, ESPA, Spa Find and Jessica Nails, while speciality treatments include holistic hot stone massage, and the cutting edge Aquasun Mineral treatment.

Donnington Valley shares an owner with the nearby Vineyard at Stockcross, whose restaurant has earned 2 Michelin stars. It should therefore come as no surprise that the food in the Winepress dining room is first-class, while the extensive wine list is remarkably good.

This is a great choice for groups with non-golfers, as the spa and leisure complex is one of the best around.

Nearby Newbury rail station is within an hour of London Paddington terminal.

I found the hotel to be in good order through out, with staff all ways able to help if needed. Bar was fine all though found price of the the beer a little on the high side. Food in the restaurant was ok if you had a problem the staff would do the best to try and sort it out. Breakfast was buffet and we found their was plenty of choices to choose from. So in all very good and worth the money.

The hotel staff were extremely professional, helpful and friendly. The food was good and the facilities just right. There is a short distance between the hotel and the golf club that requires the use of a car.

As on previous trips excellent facilities and staff, only downside on arrival I was told each of my party was being charged an outstanding balance on there stay, luckily I had the confirmation payment email from you so resolved but shouldn't have occurred in the first place.

From the moment we arrived the service received by the hotel staff was brilliant. Food was great, spa was relaxing and the overall welcome was superb. The only negative was the cost of the drinks.

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.

My wife has a high handicap so I was pleased that she could enjoy the course as much as I did. Very beautiful landscape with many different aspects to the holes. The greens were in good condition and were fair to putt on. Would definitely re-visit this complex

Found the course to be very tree lined, so you need to be straight with all clubs!!. If not this course is not for you.The greens were in very good order on all 18 holes and were very quick,fareways could do with a little more time spent on them. The club house needs a little up dating but is functional. The pro shop is very well equipped. And found all staff very helpful.

For we, mostly retired gents, the back 9 was a tough walk, particularly hole 15; much easier with buggies on day 2. Greens were in good condition but we found them difficult to read. Our only real gripe was unpredictable bounces on most fairways - no doubt a leftover from last year's drought.

Fantastic course, well maintained and the greens were spot on. We played Texas scramble on day one to familiarise ourselves with the course before playing individual stableford on the second day. We played yellow ball on the final day and also threw in some white tees, including the 16th.
