Historically known as an 18th-century coaching inn, Donington Manor Hotel now welcomes travellers from much farther afield. East Midlands airport and the M1 are within a couple of miles, giving easy access to its mix of traditional and modern event spaces. The rooms offer wi-fi, natural light and touches of the venue’s heritage. The Rawdon Suite has a private garden and the hotel restaurant is available exclusively via the Sage Room. The Gun Room offers oak-panelled seclusion for private dining.
