Very handy to get to from the motorway system, plenty of parking and a choice of food outlets in the evening, including a reasonable pub restaurant opposite. This sums up my visit. The hotel was up to the standard I have come to expect from the brand, clean, well laid out and the controlled chaos that we the customers cause... More

nice hotel, clean and well kept. Good quality price ratio, nice personnel, very friendly and helpful. A bit isolated if you do not have a car, but by car it is easy to reach the hotel from the motorway and the city centre from the hotel

Stayed here because have used holiday inn before, this was disappointing right from check in. We were ignored even though we could see a young man in the back office.

Dear Guest, Thank you for your feedback on our hotel, especially on the staff members you encountered. This excuse given not to assist you is unacceptable and even if this member of staff was not trained in this area, their response should have been more helpful.

A couple of miles from the centre of Doncaster. Very nice bedrooms and comfortable bed. Good wifi all over the hotel.

Stayed here overnight with our two young Grandchildren. The place was spotlessly clean and the 'sofa bed' ready made up for the kids. The staff were very friendly & helpful.

The Holiday Inn Express in Doncaster was a pleasant surprise. The hotel was easy to find thanks to their video, available on Youtube, which explains how to get there from Junction 3 of the M18. The room was spotless and everything worked as it should. I know this shouldn't be noteworthy, but I have spent many nights in the likes... More

This hotel doesn't look like much from the outside - rather dull actually - but inside it looks fairly modern and updated. Service from the staff was not too extravagant, but ok enough to get you checked in and such. Breakfast was a small buffet - not very impressive, but it does the job if you are only staying for...
