I have stayed in a number of Doncaster hotels and have an opinion which I think is the best one however I wanted to experience the Earl of Doncaster because I wanted to compare with were I have stayed before. Because of the cost I thought it would be out standing and the room was described as a superior room... More

The Earl of Doncaster is not an easy place to park a vehicle. It has a few spaces to the front if the hotel and a small car park to the rear. The decor is stepping into the 1930's. The room was a good size but little space to unpack your clothes and put in the wardrobe. The best part... More

This review is based upon attendance at a recent wedding breakfast, the wedding having been held elsewhere. The food and service were second to none and it was one of the most enjoyable and relaxed wedding meals I have ever had. The decor and attention to authentic art decor detail was exceptional. A definite place to return to.

Great location, walkable from the town centre, unlike most hotels in Doncaster where one is marooned out of town amongst soulless office and retail parks. Free on-site car park. The staff were friendly, helpful. The rooms was spacious and had all the basic needs of life in 2015 such as: - desk large enough to work at and properly lit... More
