Very pleasing Art Deco Restaurant that is more pleasing because of the more than helpful Staff. My young Granddaughter was thoroughly taken with the Deco when she first visited and was always talking about it and asked to go there for an afternoon Tea for her Eighth Birthday. The afternoon was superb with Staff, whom by the way talk to... More

I decided to stay at the earl as the normal hotel i stay at when visiting Doncaster was fully booked. I made the drive up from London and arrived late at around 11:00pm. On arrival I was greeted and checked in by the night porter. He was very helpful and offered to make me something to eat and a drink,... More

Absolutely fantastic... We stayed at the Earl on Friday 19th December for a Christmas party night. The decor of the hotel is fantastic, clean and finished to a high standard. They have 1st class staff, friendly helpful and quick at serving. We received a 3 course meal which was nice, the only fault is that we received no choice for... More

Utterly fantastic. I can't sing enough praise for this hotel. It was a last minute thing, as another hotel down the road had let us down The staff were all excellent and couldn't do more for you. The rooms are immaculate. Although the free wifi could do with some help. Highly recommended. Tip; call and don't use online booking sites... More

Just got back from our "New Years Eve" package deal stay at this wonderful hotel. I can't praise the place enough. What a gem we have in Doncaster. The decor is brilliant and worth a visit just to see. The staff are so friendly, even the young waiters and waitresses looked as if they were happy to be there on... More

Have just spent New Years Eve at The Earl of Doncaster. After a warm welcome and quick visit to our excellent room we went down for afternoon tea. The service, food and decor was exceptional. Drinks and canopies were served prior to dinner. First second and fourth coarses were served by staff, again very fast and excellent service. The main... More

Any one thinking of using the earl for a wedding venue will not be disappointed. Me and my husband married here in June 2014 in the consort suite and we couldn't have asked for better. The service from staff as well as the wedding co ordinators Sally and Maria was amazing. The Junior suite we had the night before was... More

We first visited The Earl for afternoon tea in June 2013. It was quiet and the manager came to talk to us and shared his passion for the hotel and showed us the fabulous ballroom. A year later after a few more afternoon teas and meals there, we booked the ballroom for our wedding. We also booked room 804, one... More

My husband and I booked this hotel months ago as a stopover for a 60th birthday party nearby. I did not read any reviews prior to booking so did not know what to expect. We were pleasantly surprised at the quality of the bedroom, the breakfast and the surroundings. A lovely night in such a comfy bed!
