I stayed one night on business. The staff and quality of the food was good. I stayed in an Executive Suite which was very comfortable and good value. My only complaint was that it had a a wet room but that is my personal taste. The hotel obviously caters for a lot of weddings but was quiet when I stayed.

We stayed in a different hotel but we were attending a wedding here at King's Croft. We phoned to book this hotel as soon as we received our wedding invitation but were told they were fully booked! About 4 weeks later the end couple told us that there was still room at King's Croft if we still hadn't booked! In... More

We have just spent 2 nights at the King's Croft, staying for a close friend's wedding. This hotel is a wedding machine and nothing more - do not stay here if you have any other reason to visit Pontefract. What is wrong with the place - the reception is hidden and poorly serviced. Only once did I get prompt attention... More

Strange hotel, but nothing you can put your finger on. Reception is hidden.. you walk into a bar and then have to wander out the back to find a receptionist. Pleasant enough welcome, but then.. you can't go through to your room because the route is through a function room. That access is unavailable if there is a function going... More

Stayed here for one night at £58 for a couple inc breakfast. The room was recently refurbed with quality furniture, large wall TV and a modern preformed open plan shower wc set up with a walk in wet room style. The room was spotless, though some more sensitive couples may be uncomfortable with the lack of privacy if on the... More

I stayed here as I had a meeting in Doncaster the next day and I was looking online for a nice hotel near to where I was going in the morning. The hotel was actually about 25 miles away from where I wanted to be (I had already travelled 200 miles to get there) but I chose this hotel based... More

The food was of a very high standard and was matched by the excellent service of the staff. We had friends and family attend from the Doncaster area who raved about the quality of the food. The...

50 guests at a celebration for afternoon tea and it was perfect. The room was stunning, the food lovely, the hot soup and rolls was a lovely touch as it was freezing outside, and the staff were very attentive, couldn't have asked for anything better, thank you.
