J D Wetherspoon is proud to open the doors of this stunning new hotel. Here at The Red Lion, our 14 rooms boast Freeview television, unlimited free Wi-Fi and tea- and coffee-making facilities. A warm and inviting pub steeped in history makes The Red Lion a perfect stay for business or leisure. Breakfast is available for an additional cost, from 7am, in the adjacent pub. Doncaster is an historic market town with a rich horseracing and railway culture. It was founded by the Romans in 71AD, because of its strategic position on the River Don. Doncaster has now become the heart of a vast metropolitan area, comprising green open spaces, nature reserves, ancient villages and Norman castles. There is something for everyone here, whether a day at the races, a trip to the famous market or a night on the town.
