As a former resident of this area, I was aware of The Crown's reputation so when I needed to spend the night near Doncaster my thoughts naturally turned to this hotel. We opted for an Executive room which is a great choice if you feel like paying that little bit more - lovely 'hamper' (wicker tub) of locally sourced nibbles, wonderfully comfortable bed, lots of space, iron (and board) in the wardrobe, beautiful bathroom and a generally pleasant, contemporary decor. My only minor gripe with the room was that it was not cleaned to my standards - dust on the lampshade, and the back of the toilet and bathroom bin were dirty. Also the top quilt on the bed had some stains on which isn't pleasant in any hotel, irrespective of how much you have paid for the room. The stairwell walls and carpets also seemed a little 'unloved', though the other public areas (bar and restaurant) were beautifully looked after.
We both slept very well and took breakfast in the morning (an additional £7.50pp). The choice was perfectly adequate - pastries, yoghurt, cereal, juice and the cooked selection. Excellent coffee! Further items are available at an additional cost but there was more than enough choice off the basic menu. Service was great - quick, polite and efficient, the staff were friendly and well-presented. They also very kindly allowed us to leave our luggage in the hotel after we'd checked out (while we visited a local attraction).
Overall, one of the nicer hotels I have ever stayed in but it would benefit from a few minor tweaks to elevate it to the level to which it clearly aspires.
