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!

Spent the day and night at The Earl of Doncaster for a day of business meetings followed by our Christmas party in the ball room. Firstly, the service they provided throughout the day was above and beyond. Nothing was too much trouble and they attended to our needs like clockwork having agreed what we needed and when at the start... More

Came to Doncaster with some friends for the first time and we stayed at the Earl of Doncaster for the night . The rooms are tastefully furnished with a real element of attention to the little detail. The hotel itself has several function halls and a bar/restaurant with same air of class . The food is very good and the... More

Stayed here after a night around Doncaster town centre with friends. Very nice hotel. Very clean. On site parking. Rooms were very smart and we had a great view over town and the playing fields. Very good location for anyone thinking of going to Doncaster races and/or Doncaster town centre.

Stayed at The Earl of Doncaster this weekend on a dancing break. Rooms, staff, food, decorations superb. Spotlessly clean. Couldn't fault the hotel in any way - had a wonderful weekend - Many thanks to everyone.

Downstairs bar is small but nice decor. We were in the ballroom for the tribute night & again the decor is very impressive. Walk way to toilets & toilets need... More

This hotel has clearly had a facelift recently and the rooms and communal areas are lovely. The reception staff are friendly and helpful, although the waiting staff in the restaurant were just ok. Breakfast itself is not the best, but the nice interiors, in particularly the lovely decor in the bar, make up for it.

The hotel was lovely, food amazing, staff were helpful, bed was comfy- nothing to complain about but just didn't have the wow factor! Would go again The only thing I didn't like was that I didn't feel very safe walking around the park or into town
