We never stayed in this hotel but we went into their bar for some drink's and what a wonderful experience . There is no finer ,ornate bar in Doncaster,it is just magnificent looking and so ostentatious that it take's your breath away. If the hotel room's match the bar then this surely must be a wonderful place to stay. We... More

We stayed at The Earl the same weekend as Carol c and we were also initially very impressed. Our room was spacious and afternoon tea was lovely. However, the way the fire alarm was dealt with was completely unacceptable. Having quickly dressed and gone down to the car park at just after 4am we were quite concerned to hear from... More

I stayed here with work but definitely stay again, if I ever had a reason to visit Doncaster myself. As soon as you see it from the outside it looks wonderfully out of place in Doncaster and that continues inside. The lobby, bar, restaurant and rooms are so incredibly ostentatious that you think youre on a film set. Or in... More

Enjoyed a pleasant two day stay at this hotel. Good points were excellent staff, large comfortable rooms, good food, especially breakfast, and interesting decor in public rooms. Also, no difficulty with parking. We would ask for a different room (108) next time as we found the dark decor a bit over powering, but we got used to it, and overall... More

Just spent a wonderful weekend at this hotel, its worth going just to view the art Deco cocktail lounge and the ballroom, its done out mainly in red black and gold, the staff were very friendly, high teas are a wonderful affair with all the right accompaniments that go with "high tea!!!".

I travelled on business, had a room at the front of the hotel which was noisy. Curtains let in the morning light. There was nowhere to put my toiletries in the bathroom - wich incidentally could have done with a good clean. My bed was uncomfortable and so what with the early morning light, traffic noise, etc I feel like... More
