Cannot fault this Hotel, very polite and helpful staff, Hotel décor is stunning, immaculate room with amazing shower (bath also available) The evening meal was excellent done to perfection, served by a very efficient team of waitresses. Breakfast was very good too. Would not hesitate to return. Thank you all at The Earl.

Stayed at the Earl of Doncaster following a recommendation from my sister of somewhere to stay in the area. We stayed here for 2 nights and were thrilled with our room. Both the bedroom and the bathroom were really spacious and clean - no complaints with that! Breakfast was great although a little pricey. Great location for Doncaster centre/the racecourse.

The Hotel is amazing. The Art Deco interior is just stunning. We had cocktails in the Bar before our Afternoon Tea. The food was lovely. The only reason I wouldn't class the whole experience as excellent is the time waiting for the food to be served. It took an hour from being seated for it to arrive. You tend to...

Lovely place, beautiful Art Deco styling and not overpriced despite being unique. A very beautiful place to have drinks or a meal in stunning surroundings. Will be booking a meal here soon, looking forward to it.

I truly cannot fault this hotel. Lovely bright rooms, comfy beds, secure car parking, friendly staff, beautiful fresh cooked breakfast. Oh and did I mention the glorious art deco style with grand piano and massive chandelier? Will definitely come again.

Parking out front, no restrictions, walk into a very quaint 30s style hotel, I really liked it. The receptionist was very nice and welcoming, in fact all the staff were very nice. I felt a little let down in the room though, not 30s style, nothing like the pictures but was clean. The bathroom was set out with very cheap...

As a celebration of a 60th wedding anniversary we went to the hotel restaurant for afternoon tea. We chose the 'standard afternoon tea' from the menu and were very impressed with the selection of food. The sandwiches were fresh with a selection of fillings. Numerous small cakes, plain and fruit scones with Jam and clotted cream. Unlimited tea and coffee...

Qwerky retro styled hotel clean and well presented and it has spacious rooms but lets itself down with a rip off £7 tray charge for room service - get real this is Doncaster not Knightsbridge ! The room rates are not cheap so no need to rip your customers off by trying to make a quick buck this way.

Arrived late to a friendly check-in by night porter. The room was large and comfortable. Unfortunately not a great night's sleep due to road noise outside, so ask for a room away from the road if possible. Breakfast was good and staff all very friendly and helpful.
