Nice hotel with a couple of bad points.
Venue Service

By James Cureton, on 25 Sep 2016Date of Wedding - 24 Sep 2016

I was a guest of a couple who got married yesterday, 24th September. Very nice venue but had a couple of bad points. The first one was leading into the upstairs venue there were 3 stairs and no handrail. Being disabled it is a bit of a struggle. By far the worst thing and in my opinion makes this hotel not worthy of its 4 star rating was the lift with an "Out of order" sign on it. After struggling up the stairs at the beginning of the evening and again coming down at the end, I noticed that the staff were actually using this lift and that there was nothing wrong with it. When I complained immediately I was told that the lift did not stop quite flush with the floors as it was going up. It was a bit more flush than a full staircase. Other guests who were staying were told that it keeps breaking down between floors. Absolute rubbish. It was used as a staff convenience. This in my opinion borders on disability hate crime and at best makes the hotel not worthy of its 4 star rating.

Fantastically Maintained Throughout
Venue Service

By Big Skodes, on 23 Jun 2016

As we pulled up to the Hotel I really had no idea of what delights lay inside. The Hotel is fantastically maintained throughout. It's like walking into a 1930's New York building. Fantastic rooms and attentive staff. Will definitely visit again.

Unique Surroundings
Venue Service

By Tommy J, on 22 Jun 2016

Over from Ireland on a family visit staying at The Earl of Doncaster. We had lunch today in the unique surroundings of the Art Deco Restaurant. As a Chef I look for the finer things in a restaurant and of course the earl has it. The one to one detail of the waitress serving a simple bread roll with a spoon and fork to the chefs home made crispy chicken goujons. I had Caesar salad served as it should be. If your in Doncaster check out the earl of Doncaster for a spot of lunch. Well worth a visit. Well done to the chef and all concerned

Amazing Friendly People
Venue Service

By Tattoo Jo, on 21 Jun 2016

We stayed at the Earl on the 14th May for my cousins 25 Wedding Anniversary. The hotel did a fabulous job with the room the food etc. The staff are amazing friendly people. We booked a junior suites which we were totally chuffed with. Breakfast was also beautiful and we had a bit of it all. Would we stay there again definitely. And yes I recommend it to anyone.

Terrific Place
Venue Service

By Donald Michael K, on 17 Jun 2016

Had a stand at the Earl of Doncaster last Sunday and what a terrific place this is. Done in Art Deco style, the ballroom is even better than when I did mobile discos here in the 70's and the Concorde suite was where I and my wife had our wedding breakfast in 1984. Staff were all friendly and nothing was too much trouble. Looking forward to working at this gem right in the middle of Doncaster

Will be going back
Venue Service

By DinkyJo, on 03 Jun 2016

from start to finish this was an enjoyable stay. From a well furnished room to staff who go above and beyond to ensure your needs are met. It is spotlessly clean and the breakfast we had was fresh and very tasty. Will be going back.

I will be staying here again and cant wait
Venue Service

By Phil1959848, on 02 Jun 2016

Booked into The Earl for a Romantic night with my partner .The room was Impressively Superior to any room I have stayed in over the years. My point of contact was the wonderful Diane,who was very friendly and ultra professional....and obviously enjoyed her job as her smile and friendliness showed thru. Hotel is very individual in its look and styling as you will see in my photos. Although we didn't eat at the hotel we did enjoy the bar and surprised that the prices were not as high as i might have expected for the quality of the hotel. Free secure parking and friendly staff. I will be staying here again and cant wait.

High Quality of Service
Venue Service

By Michael H, on 01 Jun 2016

Rooms were well appointed good selection of beverages, bathroom clean and also well appointed with a good selection of soaps. The breakfast was of a high quality and along the restaurant was busy the waiters were attentive to your needs nothing seemed to faze them. The above facts made a week end Coldstream Guards reunion pass with a high quality of service. It was pointed out to me by a member of staff that this was a 4 * establishment and it certainly lived up to it.

Wanted the night to last for ever
Venue Service

By Nina F, on 26 May 2016

We stayed on Friday 22nd April for our wedding celebration, our room was beautiful. We had over 100 guests who were delighted at the event. The food was excellent and service was excellent . From first booking our celebration Harriet was very attentive in offering advice and nothing was too much trouble. Wanted the night to last for ever. Thanks all the staff at the hotel for making our evening very special.

Eager to please
Venue Service

By Helen S, on 19 May 2016

Recently held a 50th birthday party for 150 guests in the ballroom upstairs. The Earl were really helpful planning the occasion and the night was a great success. Staff are friendly and eager to please. The party food was excellent, tasty and hot. Cannot thank the staff enough nothing was too much trouble. The decor in the room is fantastic and we had a great party atmosphere. Cannot thank the Earl of Doncaster and staff enough. Would highly recommend as a party venue. Thank you.

Cannot fault
Venue Service

By Lee R, on 06 Apr 2016

Just back from another lovely meal. Cannot fault the quality & the staff. Will be back again soon. Try the aged beef for Sunday lunch or the mega mix grill. The house red is not too bad for the price.
