Overview

Donnington Valley Hotel and Spa is just outside the village of Donnington in west Berkshire, and has an extensive list of facilities, including a 2-AA-Rosette restaurant, a spa and an on-site 18-hole golf course. It also has four AA Silver Stars, an accolade given to properties offering a superior level of quality in hospitality, service and cleanliness.

The town of Newbury is around 10 minutes' drive from the hotel, and is home to Newbury Racecourse. Highclere Castle, used for exterior shots of Downton Abbey in the popular ITV drama of the same name, is a 15-minute drive. English Heritage attraction Donnington Castle, a 14th-century castle where Henry VIII and Elizabeth I are believed to have stayed, is a 15-minute walk away.

The "state-of-the art" spa (The AA Hotel Guide 2018) has an 18-metre pool surrounded by floor-to-ceiling windows. There's also a Jacuzzi, a sauna, a steam room, an aromatherapy room and experience showers. Pre-booked spa treatments are also available (supplements apply).

There's an 18-hole golf course on site and a Grade II-listed Victorian clubhouse with views over the fairways. There's also a club shop. It's £25 per person per round, which must be booked in advance (payable directly to the hotel).

The 2-AA-Rosette WinePress Restaurant serves "imaginative food complemented by a superb wine list", says The AA, and the hotel's bar is open daily, offering sharing platters, drinks and meals.

Executive rooms have views of either the golf course or the Berkshire countryside. All rooms have free Wi-Fi.

The entire experience was excellent. The staff could not have been more pleasant or helpful & the hotel & Spa was really nice & a deserved 4* rating. The food was very good with excellent service both at dinner & breakfast. The Sommelier was excellent, his wine list absolutely incredible, I should have stayed a week & worked my way through it. I could not fault this break & many thanks to all the staff for our experience.

A good hotel with wonderful staff, excellent food & an unbelievable wine selection with a gifted sommelier to help you select the ideal wine to complement each course. The Spa was also very nice & the golf course looked nice & well maintained although I did not have the chance to play.
