From the very first contact with this privately owned Art Deco hotel in central Doncaster we had nothing but great experiences. Reception staff and room staff are very efficient and helpful, the restaurant staff are par excellence and give great personal service. Rooms are modern, spacious with designer en suites and very comfy beds. The Art Deco theming is extremely... More

Stayed here for two nights and was very impressed. At last I've found a hotel I can get some sleep in! Room 322 was lovely and quiet. When I got to the room my heart sunk as it's opposite the lift but no lift noise, no noisy neighbours, no road noise and best of all soft closing doors so no... More

True that this hotel does it's best to add a bit of cheer to austerity affected Doncaster. It boasts a nice Art Deco style facade jazzed up by a front terrace lined with vivid green fake grass topped by large flower pots in shocking purple! Inside, the theme continues with a glitzy, brassy ballroom and other repro 30's fittings. But... More

Loved the Art Deco decor of this hotel, stayed in an executive Queen room and was not disappointed. Large room, large bathroom with separate shower and the heated mirror was a welcome extra as it meant I could do my make up! Friendly receptionists and bar staff and the restaurant area is lovely: breakfast was served in there. Continental available... More

Stayed here for a Dance weekender and really couldn't fault this hotel. It is furnished in a lavish Art Deco style, the ballroom was splendid, the bedrooms very modern and well furnished, lovely shower and bath and most important of all, very comfy bed. The staff were all very pleasant and attentive, particularly in the restaurant, the food was served... More

There is no mistaking that back in the day this hotel was the 'bee's knees' and there is plenty of evidence relating to Victorian and Edwardian opulence. The rooms are now modern but still try to be old fashioned and elegant. It is very close to the race course, in fact walking distance and a little further out of town.... More

This hotel is a £5 taxi ride form Doncaster station. Check in and check out were both efficient. It is decorated in an Art Deco style throughout and a little over the top. But the bedroom was comfortable (save for the bed having an odd slope to it). It looked as if it had been refurbished in the last couple... More

Excellent facilities, presented to a good standard. Staff were very pleasant. Best option for Doncaster. However the food in the restaurant in the evening is horrendous. The Breakfast was much better, served by very attentive staff.

The Earl of Doncaster lies just outside Doncaster town centre, so finding a parking place can be challenging. The pillared front entrance is imposing, and one feels that dining here would be an 'occasion'. Inside the Earl is sumptuous, a mirrored palace which offers you umpteen opportunities to catch yourself nibbling on dainty sandwiches or tiny pieces of strawberry tart.... More

I love this land mark hotel and over the years attended many functions and events however our recent experience will mean it will be a long time before we visit again. The decor is fabulous but unfortunately the service and food is poor. From the cocktails to both starters and main course we were really disappointed. Apparently the barman and... More
