This was our first visit. The hotel is marketed as Art Deco and the decor of the lobby and main hall where the event was held were truly magnificent!! Lots of well designed features which make the environment truly unique. The meal was very good, very reasonable portions and very attentive service. We did not stay the night so cannot... More

It was on my wife's bucket list to stay in an 'art deco' hotel, so we settled on the Earl as it isn't too far to travel for us at this time of year. The building didn't disappoint, it is truly beautiful. Our room was lovely, one of the best laid out we've stayed in , plenty of room to... More

The afternoon tea is well worth the £10-95 per person. There is a menu of choice, classic or savory. The staff are very attentive. The ambiance is perfect. The only downside to it was that the scone is small but they put loads of jam and clotted cream on the plate enough for 2 scones and there is a lot... More

I chose this hotel based on trip advisor reviews and my fellow reviewers got it absolutely right! I loved the 1920's decor, the ballroom is so decadent. We had afternoon tea in here on the first day, it was excellent value for money, delicious and very filling! I loved the black and white Bette Davis movie which was running (sound... More

went to the hotel for a friends birthday party, and whilst it was nice, with the Art Deco theme throughout it didn't wow me. The bar staff were hard work, and didn't really see why the large pictures of Audrey Hepburn were needed, but a lovely room, although a strange size,and wouldn't recommend the hotels dj

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
