The room was decent size & wifi worked OK on the laptop until early evening when it really slowed down & none of my apple devices could even see the server! I met a business colleague in the bar which was unattended for some time & after getting served eventually we moved into the restaurant. There were more waitresses than... More

I have marked this average, but it was better than this, although not quite very good. It is a quirky place, with a bit of a blingy, Art Deco feel. The rooms were good and staff very friendly and helpful. It advertises a gym, which is one reason I booked, but it turns out this is t on site and... More

Fabulous evening in the Art Décor ballroom! Excellent food, good wine, and great support from the Harriet in the sales team at the outset right the way through to Steve the Operations manager, staff and DJ on the night. Everyone commented on the good quality of the food and nothing was too much for any of the staff. The hotel... More

We attended an amazing wedding here. It was all great, only slight problems were the slightly inexperienced young staff, this can be sorted with the correct training and the tiny ladies toilets. otherwise fantastic venue, lots of parking available, funky looking hotel & hotel priced drinks.

The food is excellent, the bed super comfortable and the staff friendly and helpful. The location is pretty good in Doncaster too. I was there for a week and forgot a few clothes when I checked out. The staff was very helpful in helping me recover the forgotten articles with FedEx.
