A great place for a spa break for groups of girls to go away together for a real pampering without breaking the bank, either for the day or overnight.
Donnington Valley also has an excellent golf course and is close to Newbury racecourse so if you are looking for a destination where you can combine hen and stag weekends together, with diffeent activities for each during the day, this is the place.
It is also a good choice for a pre (or post) wedding spa break as a couple.
This is a very well equipped spa with all the amenities you would expect.
Large swimming pool with poolside loungers
Large cafeteria area
Dance studio with exercise classes
Well equpped gym
There is nothing like lying on a sun lounger with a magazine in one hand and a fruit juice in the other, watching people swimming laps of a deep blue pool.
It is hard to fault Donnington Valley’s Spa, it has everything you need but without the unnecessary, and sometimes expensive, frills. The decor is clean and contemporary throughout, everything worked as it should, it was not too busy even on a Friday, and the treatments were good value.
The Spa’s treatment suite is on the 2nd floor with its own reception desk and has a wonderful relaxation room looking out onto the golf course complete with soft blankets and magazines.
The spa adjoins the hotel and there are great rates available for overnight spa breaks. The rooms were very comfortable, with gorgeous bathrooms, and the food in the main restaurant was excellent and again was good value with an extensive and varied wine list.
We met a couple of groups of hens during our time there, and all were really enjoying their stay.
