Welcome To Donington Manor Hotel
Donington Manor Hotel is a landmark building within the village of Castle Donington. Conceived and built in 1794 by the Marquis of Hastings, it was originally named The Rawdon Hotel providing rest and refreshment to weary travelers on the stagecoach routes between Nottingham and Ashby.
Donington Manor Hotel features prominently within the village’s Local Heritage Trail with many visitors stopping to admire the original features, including the horse steps at the front of the building, service bells in the old scullery (now The Gun Room), and original fireplaces throughout the main house.

What People are Saying
"Just got back, from another 2-night break. Absolutely love this place, we got upgraded to a suite for free, the reception staff couldn’t do enough to help, ate in the restaurant one evening and the food was beautiful. Had breakfast on both days, there was always plenty of selection."
"After getting married here in September 2015, I have been back several times and always had a positive experience. The food is amazing and the service is fantastic. Would recommend for weddings, afternoon tea or for somewhere to have a meal."
"Afternoon tea was amazing! The staff were friendly and helpful and the food was so nice and clearly homemade. The scones are the best I have ever tasted! A lovely Sunday afternoon treat."
