    From start to finish the experience was PERFECT!

    I can’t thank the owner/staff enough at the Earl of Doncaster hotel, my wife and I fell in love with the venue on the 26th of October 2018 when we booked a room for the night after a day out, while we were in the search for a wedding venue. Although we arrived late on that evening the staff were so nice and showed us around your stunning venue..... we knew right away that it was the one!
    A year later to the day I stood, slightly nervous, waiting at the front of a beautifully dressed room ahead of my friends and family and waiting for my wife (for a long time.... may I add) to eventually walk down the aisle to greet me and exchange our vows.
    From start to finish the whole experience of The Earl of Doncaster hotel has been perfect, from the food, the help with planning, the staff (huge shout out to Leanne!), the rooms were/are amazing, the general service..... I couldn’t ask for more, you made us both so happy... The owner of the hotel even arrived to greet us on the day of the wedding and followed this up by coming to see me, to see how the day went the following morning at breakfast (when I looked a little worse for wear!).
    My friends and family all spoke so highly of the venue and service the received throughout our magical day, they were all hugely impressed!
    All in all I’m now happy married to my gorgeous wife and reflect back to our perfect weekend with fond memories of the Earl.
    Thank you!

    My wedding day! Great day!

    Had a fantastic day! The staff added to the wow factor by making sure we were happy throughout the day. Would definitely recommend to anyone, any occasion. The bridal suite was fantastic and have already said i would like to stay there again for our anniversary.

    Our wedding day

    We loved every second of our wedding reception at the Earl, nothing was too much trouble for the staff and the venue is beautiful. Such a different vibe from places you usually see. Everyone still talks about how fantastic our day was, and how smoothly everything ran. Wish we could do it all again! Kelly & Ryan Dyson
