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...

Very basic limited storage space no toiletries ( set up very similar to a travel lodge) The bed dipped in the middle felt as if... More

I stayed at this hotel for an exhibition at Doncaster Racecourse. It was within a 10 minute drive and near to the main transport links around the city. It was my second stay. The rooms are very basic with an open hanging area for clothes, no wardrobe or a single drawer to put your things. It seemed clean with very... More

Stayed here on business for three nights. Perfectly fine for that purpose but nothing overly special. Breakfast & evening meals were a little limited (with not too much else in the local vicinity as an alternative either) but I didn't go hungry. Seems that this area is used as a lorry park at night - probably due to the excellent... More

This hotel was very nice and clean and in a great area, the pub opposite does a fantastic lunch too, the only thing I would say negative about this hotel was the bar prices were a bit much eg £6.50 for a baileys.

Dear Nicola, Thank you so much for your great review! The pub over the road is a great pub and so convenient for our guests! We also offer food at the hotel everyday! Please don't forget that the all our measure for spirits such as Baileys are doubles (50ml) so it may be more reasonable than you think! Thanks again... More

We stayed in this hotel overnight and found it scrupulously clean, a very comfortable bed and excellent service. The staff at the reception were very friendly and helpful. It has a bar that stays open until around 1 in the morning with a very good selection of drinks and the breakfast is adequate. I recommend it.

We stayed here for one night on our way north, it's just off of the motorway. It's located on the edge of new developments with Morrrison's nearby & a pub at the end of the car par & the park & ride nearby.
