  • Really friendly staff and waiters and helpful with directions, however breakfast choice was very small. No vegetarian hot food option except for baked beans, no dairy free butter however they did have soy milk! Door to the bathroom didn't shut properly due to raised bathroom floor near the door. Double bed was two singles pushed together creating an uncomfortable crevice in the middle!
  • One of the best tracks in the UK for spectating and being able to get a good photo. There are many spots where you can see over the fencing or get up close and personal to the racing action. There is also a large open paddock for most racing events. Parking is well organised, with gravel tracks to help during wet times of year and many marshals are on hand to help with parking directions. Free cash withdrawals too, inside the building near the petrol station in the paddock.
  • I was here for the Download festival, it was nicely organised with a relaxed atmosphere, despite their being armed police with extra security measures in place this actually put my mind at ease considering the current climate. All the staff were friendly and helpful no matter what time of day or night it was. There was no trouble witnessed the whole weekend!
  • Download Festival at Donnington Park. It's an annual Rock and Metal festival that happens once a year on the 2nd weekend in June. 2017 was a big improvement over 2016 with better site drainage and a new layout to the arena. Public campsites are still too far away from the arena and there wasn't enough loos as huge queues formed. On the whole though it's a great weekend with some good music and great people.
  • Great venue! I was here for Fast Car Festival 2016 and it was amazing. Very easy to find and get into, and easier to communicate around. A clean and quiet camp site is located just to the right of the paddock entrance/exit . The seating and view of the track is great! Overall a great experience. Another great factor is the restaurant, the staff are helpful and are always happy to help and the food is great at a reasonable price, especially if there is am event on.
