I stayed at the Ramada Encore at Doncaster airport while contracting in the area. Prices are a little higher than the budget Ibis benchmark so I expected a higher standard. On the whole, I found this establishment to be clean, friendly and well run with a couple of niggles.
First the good points:
The open plan reception and bar area gives the hotel a welcoming and informal feel.
I was allocated a twin room on the first floor. The room itself was immaculately clean with bright and simple decor. The bathroom was especially well fitted out with a nice wet shower. Room facilities included tea and coffee making facility, flat TV, desk and climate control panel.
Quality of sleep can depend on how considerate the other guests are, but I can honestly say I had undisturbed rest for all three nights of my stay. This is really important and I felt the Ramada Encore really excelled in this area.
I found the staff to be friendly, professional and efficient without exception.
The surrounding area is not like a typical airport, it's really quite quiet. There was no noise from traffic or aircraft.
And now the not so good:
I ordered some soup for my evening meal on the saturday and, while the service was good, the soup was lukewarm and very salty.
Laminate flooring in the rooms is of questionable taste. Ok, it's easy to keep clean compared to carpet, but it's noisy, looks cheap and feels cold - a hangover from those dreaded changing rooms programmes and the last property boom.
I would recommend this hotel to business travellers looking for value and comfort and would definitely stay here again myself. Overall, excellent value and service.
