Covid-19 Restrictions

A message from our General Manager,
Nigel Roberts-Green


Dear Friends of Donnington Grove, our community of suppliers and our incredible hard-working, dedicated team.

Who could have predicted the extraordinary and challenging times we have all witnessed during 2020, however, right now we are just delighted to be opening at a steady pace and gradually returning to some sense of normality.
The team is now safely working with new procedures to welcome and serve you when you visit the hotel.  We are all keen to continue with what we do best……looking after all of our guests in the friendly, personal, yet professional way to make your stay memorable for the right reasons, as you discover Donnington Grove.

Our first priority is to keep everyone safe, that’s you our guests, but also our team. We see this as a partnership of trust, so we ask you to please play your part in keeping everyone safe. In return we will all be doing the same for you.  If you are planning an overnight trip or visiting the bar or restaurant we are suggesting that you download the NHS Covid-19 APP on your mobile, prior to arrival.  Alternatively, we have our own track and trace in place so we have a record of your stay.  It is a legal requirement that we record your details.

This is new territory for us all too, we would ask you to be patient with the team if you are visiting, there is a chance some things might be a little different than usual, whilst we all get used to the new way of doing things!

Above all, thank you for your continued support during these odd times and to those that have made a booking over the next couple of months, that may have moved dates many times – we look forward to offering you a warm welcome.

Kind regards,


When can I stay?

Book online, our bedroom diary is open from 17th September 2020

Our bedrooms are thoroughly cleaned and sanitised. Prior to check every bedroom is treated with an ozone generator, check lists are completed and security seals used for peace of mind.  You will receive a complimentary welcome bag at check-in containing all of your personal toiletries and essentials for making hot drinks. Additional linen items or beverage replacements are provided on request during your stay, we will not enter your room until you have left. It is mandatory to wear a face-covering inside the hotel in all public areas, it may be removed once seated in the bar and restaurant.

Why not plan ahead for a late autumn escape? We have a good range of rooms separate to the hotel on the grounds. Midweek and weekend rooms are available from October, November, December and into early 2021!

Our Reservations team are doing their best to respond to all enquiries as soon as they can, but we do suggest that where possible you make your hotel or table booking online.

Can I book a table?

Beau’s Bar and Restaurant is open daily, you can book online or call directly 01635 582 134

We have reduced menus but you will still be able to have breakfast, light bites, meals and afternoon tea, all served outside or inside. We are operating to follow the current guidelines that dictate table sizes and combinations.  Please bear this in mind. 

Can I use a Gift Voucher?

We have extended the validity of all Gift Vouchers that expired whilst we are closed, or that are due to expire later this year so that you are still able to use them.  Please email with the voucher details.

If we are forced to close our hotel due to COVID-19 then bookings can be transferred or cancelled at no charge.
