“Something from a horror movie!”
Reviewed 9 April 2012

DO NOT STAY HERE!!
Myself and 2 friends wanted somewhere cheap for a night out in Doncaster! Booking this place was a big mistake!
Creepy men hanging around playing cards in reception...did not feel safe at all!
The place looked like a prison! Guests hanging out of the windows!
Room 213!! 13 said it all!
Shower and toilet outside the room!
The window view was a graveyard!! No joke!

I would suggest booking the Premier Inn :) We left...with a refund( the guy at reception didn't even question why we left which was v strange!) At least the guy at reception seemed polite and friendly..the only positive thing about the place!

The premier inn was more money.....but felt much safer and just a few minutes walk to the bars!

Lucky escape! :)

Room Tip: Go to the Premier Inn!

I stayed at this hotel as I had a job interview in Doncaster and needed to stay overnight. Thought I would just stay somewhere cheap as I am not the sort of person who minds staying in a budget hotel, but this has changed my mind. Here are just a few problems:

Shower/toilet facilities were dirty, did not lock and the light didnt work in most
Stained dirty sheets
Small, dark room
Tv didnt work
Totally unsafe, window was broken and door didnt lock properly
Smells of cigarette smoke everywhere
Other people staying there - definatly a mix of druggies, alcoholics and criminals
Staff were friendly, but useless.
Yuck!

I read reviews before going and still decided to book! Dont make the same mistake I did, pay and extra 15 pounds to stay in a travellodge or premier inn!

well i have never seen such a poo hole, We had planned to stay only 1 night but we booked in and there were no light working in the room, we oppened the window to let the smell out and told thwm the light did not work and went for a drive, when we got back the light were working , well i wish they wernt, it was terrible. dirty floor, bedding,silly striplights, and it still stank. we complained and asked for a refund only to be show a small papper sighn saying you had 20 mins to get a refund. we went else where. Do NoT Stay Here, you would be better off staying in a public toilet

Room Tip: dont get a room here, use premmeir inns

Morning, now that’s the pleasantries out the way, now where do I start, The Restover Lodge Hotel, Doncaster, I can not believe a company like booking.com, has a hotel of this standard on your books, I understand it is a budget hotel, but you still expect it to be a least clean and believe me this place has never seen so much as a vacuum cleaner, duster and any type of cleaner in years, there was used condoms and needles in the corridor, and the room had not even had the ash tray emptied I could go on for hours, but to be frank I cant be bothered, I will never use booking.com ever again, if fact it was that bad half of my booking party booked into another hotel

I repeat, DO NOT STAY HERE

"DO NOT STAY"!!! pure filth don't look like the whole place let Aloe the rooms have been threatened with a Hoover in months rather than days ..
The carpet in the room looked like a murder scene in csi. The room stand like an old dustbin.
I know you get what you pay for, but this is unreal. I spent two week's traveling found France and stayed in 14 of these hotels across France so knew about the separate shower and toilets so wasn't an issue. But never had any issues with cleanliness or feeling a fear of catching something from your stay. Felt I needed to got for inoculations after stay.
