With former inhabitants including style icon Beau Brummell and fun-loving femme fatale Daisy Fellowes, Donnington Grove is anything but humdrum. From original hand-painted decorations to period artworks and furniture, the hotel has a timeless, unique feel. Even during peak times it offers peaceful seclusion, alongside plenty to discover and enjoy.
Guests adore the unrivalled views of Donnington Castle and the idyllic River Lambourn, with its resident trout, ducks and swans. They also love the warmth of the welcome, the excellent service and wide choice of accommodation, from splendid manor house rooms to cosy lodges and an eco-friendly summer house. All these qualities mark Donnington Grove as one of the most unique hotels in Berkshire.
