A nice hotel on the river. The room was big and clean, separate from the Hotel. It's too far out from Castle Donington to walk at this time of year. It was New Years Eve so we decided to drive in for our pre- booked restaurant and then go to the Hotel Bar. However we abandoned that idea on discovering the wine started at ?23.00 a bottle. We enjoy wine and appreciate quality but this was bog standard wine at inflated prices. We celebrated the New Year in our room with wine from the local shop (?12.00 for 2 ). The bar area was not at all festive and we were disappointed. Service at breakfast took nearly an hour for two omelettes. The toast was served first. There were no apologies. Collapse

My husband received this night away as a gift for his 40th birthday so we were really looking forward to having a night away while our 5 year old was being looked after. Unfortunately we had, possibly, one of the worst nights sleep in a long time. The hotel is tired, it needs a facelift. The staff are friendly enough but it all feels a bit "fed up". The room we stayed in was tiny and it was so hot we had to open the window. The bathroom is tiny bit clean but also looking tired and needs revamping. This is just personal opinion but the pillows are way too soft, so if you like a firm pillow I would take your own and the bed is also way too soft. And to top it off we think there was a wedding on because we were kept awake by other guests banging down the corridors outside our room and taking very loudly with no concern for others who may have been asleep or trying to sleep. One couple even tried to get in to our room at 1am. This, of course, isn't the hotels fault but we weren't told there was a wedding on and they obviously didn't think about where they'd put us in relation to where the guests were staying. We didn't get to sleep until 02:30 in the morning! The only redeeming feature of the hotel is the food. Our evening meal was really good and the breakfasts were lovely. Unfortunately that won't be enough to bring us back. We ended up leaving at 10:30 in the morning because we'd had enough even though we're got a late checkout at 12:00. It's a real shame because the location is beautiful and the food is gorgeous. But there are nicer, quieter places to stay. Collapse

11 of us stayed here overnight for a 2-day work meeting. The hotel its self is in a beautiful location, it's just a shame that the rooms and conference facilities are a little tired. I stayed in one of the cottage rooms which was clean with beautiful Molton Brown toiletries. Like the rest of the hotel though, it felt tired and as though it needed a face-lift. The service was on the relaxed side, and mixed in terms of cheery welcoming-ness. Some staff were very friendly, others not so. For work meetings and conferences, this isn't the best of venues. Phone signal is dire and the internet isn't the best. We enjoyed being uncontact-able for some of it, but when important business sales need to take place at the same time, it's not really good enough. Perhaps a signal booster or something could help. I guess it's due to the remote-ish location. But, the food really is a redeeming feature of this hotel. The dinner and breakfast were particularly delicious and plentiful. Hats off for that, I ate every last morsel! So yes, nothing to stick my neck out and complain about particularly, it was all ok. The food makes up for other downfalls for sure! Collapse

Look pretty and I was excited to get there. The setting was gorgeous and remote by the river. However I arrived and was told I was in one of the cottages....it was up stairs with no lift (good job I'm able bodied) my bag was very heavy to carry though. The room was small, it smelt mouldy there were stains on the pouffe. When I went into the bathroom one of the small selection of towels given was dirty and no sign of the included bathrobe! So I settled down for the night and put my drink down to see dust floating in the air the lamp was covered in dust. Great job I have a dust allergy so majorly nasal the next day. I also ordered room service the food was delivered fairly quickly but was very bland. I also found a long black hair in my bowl of fries. Only good thing was the hotel setting unfortunately. Collapse

Stayed September 5th – September 8th 201-3 night’s bed and breakfast. We were allocated Executive room no.40. Room was smaller than expected. Bed was comfy and firm. The bathroom towels were thick, of good quality and changed daily. There were some practicality issues; • wardrobe space was very limited • bathroom had inadequate light over the mirror, not good enough to apply makeup or shave; • in winter months be aware there is no heating within bathroom; • Bathrobes provided but could not find any slippers. Room beginning to look a little tired and lack of maintenance in several areas; • lining wall paper beginning to peel off the walls; • shower hose and toilet roll holder connection to the wall was loose; • Heated towel rail did not work. We had reserved a table for dinner in the Mill Stream Bar on the first night. Limited menu choice but usually consider that to be a plus point. The young inexperienced waitress had no knowledge of the food on the menu so could not offer advice on portion size or accompaniments. We ordered a bottle of wine. The waitress arrived akin to a “Mrs Overall” Acorn Antiques sketch, carrying 2 glasses of already poured out wine, the already opened bottle of wine tucked precariously under her arm! The food was ok but nothing special and portion size small. Breakfast on the first morning was chaotic. No one greeted us nor were we ever asked our room number at any time. A case of find a table and sort it out yourself. Had to seek staff to ask for glasses and they had run out of orange juice at the buffet table. We were ignored for 15 minutes so again had to find a member of staff to ask for coffee and to order a cooked breakfast. There were plenty of young staff scurrying around doing only one task but ignoring other guests. On the second and third morning things were much better organised and we were served quickly. We felt that the staff had not been trained and that no one appeared to have overall responsibility for directing or overseeing staff. When problems were reported to reception there was never any feedback and no matter reported was ever resolved. Collapse

As a party of six we very much enjoyed our two-course lunch in a hotel in a beautiful setting. As a member of our party was an elderly gentleman he left on his plate two very nice slices of roast beef. I am the owner of two dogs and the waiter was more than happy to supply me with a doggy bag in order to take the slices of beef home - all very nicely presented. Imagine my surprise when opening the wrapping the next day in order to add a little to the dogs' evening meal I discovered that the two lovely slices of beef in gravy had turned into a large helping of soft pork crackling accompanied by two large pieces of fat. I feel very concerned about this episode. What happened to the slices of beef as I am sure the could not have been put into the bin in order to supply me with such a dreadful alternative? And - I do not consider it at all hygienic to issue me with food from the plate of another person - not even if it was meant for my dogs. I do not approve of this kind of treatment from what I had considered to be a reputable establishment and will certainly not be returning. Collapse
