Damp room

Posted Jun 13, 2014 on Hotels.com
Hotel was slightly disappointing for the price. There was a large damp patch on the room wall and the wall paper was peeling off. The room smelled musty.Seemed to be a shortage of staff to handle bar duties/room service and the reception.

Comfortable old world inn

Posted Jun 6, 2014
Pros: Staff and comfort
Cons: Needs a refurbishment
Location: Just passing through
The hotel is getting a little 'tired' in its fabric. However this is more than made up for by the excellent staff. The rooms are still comfortable but the whole place could use a little TLC. having said that I had no complaints, the staff and food were first class.

Good People

Posted Mar 21, 2014 on Hotels.com
The room was a good sized room. It was old and un updated but also has a lot of character. We could hear the birds singing in the morning which was nice. The breakfast was included and also very good. The staff were very nice and extremely accommodating.

UNCOMFY BED

Posted Sep 7, 2013 on Hotels.com
I booked a courtyard room but was given a room in the main building despite paying a premium for the courtyard room. The mattress on the bed was soft and uneven as the springs had gone on one side of the bed so you felt like you were rolling to one side! The bathroom was dirty with rubbish and bits of toilet tissue on the floor. The bath panel was hanging off and dirty. The staff were very friendly and the restaurant was good but the room let the hotel down.

Room 30 has no bath and is for disabled guests from layout. Restaurant fully booked so had to make do with bar snack; seems to me they should block off some reservations for paying guests.

Perfect location if everywhere else is full (2/10)

Posted Jun 17, 2013
Pros: Managed to get parked
Cons: Staying there and the price
Location: Perfect location
A complete cash in based upon Download Festival being in town. The downstairs rooms in the courtyard are dark, dirty and dusty, with no daytime privacy unless you draw the curtains entirely. You're also at the mercy of both the monotonous thrum of the generator/ chiller unit just outside (so no night time fresh air with a slightly ajar window then!) and your upstairs neighbours who sound like they may fall through the ceiling at even the slightest movement, such is the appalling sound-proofing. Tired, sad and in need of refreshment. That's how you'll feel the morning after and also the conclusion we drew of the accommodation. What a shame because it could be amazing with a bit...okay a lot of work. And it's nestled right in the heart of lovely Castle Donington (visit Gandhi's for dinner and Tyler's for breakfast and you'll not regret either). Next time, it'll be a guest house.

Ok but nothing special

Posted Feb 28, 2013 on Hotels.com
Rooms are in need of modernising as does the bar area/hotel generally. It was ok but probably would not stay again
