Our Perfect Wedding
After searching for the perfect venue, my husband to be found Donnington and what a find. On the first visit it just ‘felt right’. Our wedding coordinator Becky emailed us regularly, we had regular visits and everything was very well organised from booking family rooms for the weekend, the food menu, day and evening all went so smoothly leaving us not stressed in the slightest! The actual wedding day was perfect and we really can’t thank the staff at Donnington enough. We also get to go back on our first anniversary as part of our wedding package...looking forward to it

Our Day Was Fabulous
I would like to share our huge thanks to you and the team for such a wonderful wedding and weekend. From the moment we came for our first visit, to us checking out on Sunday, we were made to feel so welcome and special.

It is obvious that you all work in a very special environment; from our point of view, it is clear that you all love working at the hotel. This shows in the way you deal with guests and how you care about every little detail.

The day was fabulous, we loved every minute and now wishing it wasn’t over quite so quickly! We will be back next year to celebrate our anniversary.

A great venue for your special celebration. Highly recommended. Here’s why...
We celebrated our wedding reception at Donnington Valley with 100 guests in October. The official bit was done abroad and we wanted to be able to celebrate the day and share some of the memories out there as well as making more with our family and friends. We had a disco and buffet with plenty of tables to sit at and catch up and space to dance. Becky also supplied a Tv so we could show our photos from the day abroad, so those that couldn’t be there could enjoy them as well.

Becky and her team at the hotel made it easy from start to finish. We checked out a lot of different places but We were wowed from the time we walked in the front door and looked around. We explained what we would like and there was nothing that was a problem. From sweets to swords, sliders to speeches.
The room we used was dressed perfectly and Becky and her team were on hand to get everything ready. We literally did nothing, but turn up. The food was amazing and many of our guests have commented how tasty it was and there was plenty of it.
Many of us stayed over night and made use of the spa before hand which was a great way to relax.
The following morning we had our own private breakfast room so our guests could analyse the evenings events over a full English, fruit or a croissant. We were made to feel very special. Thank you again.

exceeded our expectations
We cannot really put into words how grateful we are for the effort Becky & her team put into our wedding day. From start to finish the staff at Donnington were on hand to help us with any questions or queries we had leading up to our wedding, and we had every confidence in them when it came to the final organisation of the special day.
We genuinely feel that the staff exceeded our expectations, and made every single part of our wedding breakfast and reception absolutely beautiful. They put so much effort into the finer details of the whole day, more than I had even thought about, and I honestly would not have changed a thing.
We have had so many compliments regarding the hotel, and more so just how lovely all of the staff were on the day itself.
Both Kieron and I would like to give special thanks to Becky, Lewis and Brian. The 3 of them worked tirelessly to ensure every single guest was looked after and catered for.
We cannot recommend Donnington Hotel enough - it's just wonderful!

The staff worked tirelessly to ensure we had the best day, and I genuinely wouldn’t have changed a thing! I can’t put into words how grateful we are for making every single part of our day amazing. Thank you! X

Donnington Valley hosted our wedding 10 days ago and I cannot recommend this place enough for an event. Lucy and Adam are the best you can ask for - there was no stress and no hassle and the day went so fantastically well. We have had a lot of friends and family give positive feedback about the hotel too. It is beautiful inside, the staff are friendly and helpful. The food is exquisite and the atmosphere welcoming. I am sad it is all over but will use any excuse for us to go back and enjoy the hotel in the future as husband and wife :)

6th May - Wedding at Donnington Valley
I Married Andrew Woods on the 6th May 2017 and I could not have faulted the attentive time given to us from beginning to end of our Wedding planning from Lucy Young and Adam Ainsworth from Donnington Valley Spa Hotel. Every detail was meticulously noted and nothing was too much trouble even on the third tweak! We were invited to an evening of food and wine tasting to make sure we were totally happy with the menu for the day, minor changes were made to accommodate us, we had guests that were vegetarians and this was no issue either. Lucy the Wedding and Events Co-Ordinator became the liaison between all the different aspects of pulling the Wedding Day together and at no time did I feel out of touch. On the day we could not have been looked after more than we were, every effort and more was made to make our day perfect. The staff worked tirelessly to accommodate all our guests needs and the day will always be fondly remembered as Our Wedding Day and made special on so many levels. We would totally recommend contacting and using Donnington Valley Spa Hotel .
