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 ... Read more

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 ... Read more

When we came to Donnington Valley Hotel in September 2016 we had very few ideas about what we wanted for our wedding. Then Lucy came into our lives.... I don't even have words to describe how exceptional this lady is.... we met her in January for a meeting and found her to be friendly, approachable, incredibly professional but also fun... what a combination! Along the way we have had multiple minor issues/changes and Lucy has taken this all in her stride. We also had quite a few complex dietary requirements and this was no issue/no bother to her and the chef and we just couldn't believe how easy this process really was. I have spoken to Lucy a few times ... Read more

First I would like to thank you Lucy, because the organization was perfect. I was so nervous and busy that day, so I really appreciated that there were always people around, watching the time and making sure everything happened exactly as planned. The food was delicious, I loved the room and every member of the staff did their max to make sure we enjoyed our big day the best we could. We were simply happy with the way our wedding went, and so were our guests. I will definitely recommend Donnington Valley hotel to my friends and visit it in the future.

We had the most amazing wedding day …. Thank you so much for making it perfect for us. All the planning and detail was exactly as we hoped. We couldn’t fault a single thing with regards to the wedding day itself! The Duty Manger I think his name was Will? Was so on the ball with everything too, always checking to see if everything was going to plan and was always around if needed (Which of course he wasn’t) Our stay was just as good – food was delightful, room very clean and our spa day was exactly what we needed.

I can't thank Lucy and Adam more! During the run up to the wedding, Lucy's knowledge and organisation really helped us clueless folk which helped us to relax and feel more confident about the day. On the day before we were shocked at how easy it all was for ourselves with Lucy and Adam taking everything off our hands. Having only met Adam that day, was a bit nervous but don't why as he was amazing! We really liked the fact that we were shown the room before all the guest came down so we could see it all first. The evening bar staff were lovely, very laid back and efficient, they felt like part of the party :) Just ... Read more

I Married Andrew Woods on the 6th May 2017 and I could not have faulted the attentative 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 ... Read more
