We were visiting a craft event at the racecourse and stayed three nights we had a meal... More

I travel a lot for business and always prefer to stay somewhere local when I can rather than a chain. The Earl of Doncaster hasn't disappointed! Lovely size room, fantastic bathroom with walk in rain shower, scrumptious dinner from the restaurant and good service. Very happy overall and would recommend to anyone.

The third time I have stayed here and it was very good. I requested and was given a room i had stayed in before, 322. I liked it because it's quiet and spacious. Wasn't quite as clean as before, something squashed on the wall by the bed and something black and very dead by the bathroom door. Overall not too... More

I went with friends for afternoon tea. We were in the same room as people who were having their wedding reception....not good!. It took ages before our food order was brought to the table. The selection of sandwiches and cakes were abysmal Its time you got a pattiserie chef with some notion of what high tea is all about. One... More

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
