Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by uncomfortable guest Great Service but ...
I don't usually complain about hotel rooms or write reviews but but, on this occasion I wanted to show my disappointment after my recent visit.
I can't complain about the staff, they were extremely helpful but the room let our stay down.
We stayed on two different nights in between visiting relatives. On our second visit, we had to move rooms due to the unbearable heat ... on the website the hotel claims to have "Individually Controlled Air Conditioning" ... this should be corrected to state there is an individual controlled ceiling fan in each room that does nothing to cool the room down, the only benefit this fan has, is to put you off your sleep for being far too noisy!! Due to the heat of the room and the noise of the ceiling fan, after a very uncomfortable hot and sleepless night, my husband and I were forced to check out with our ten month baby son at 4am and head home!
Second complaint .... the beds were extremely uncomfortable and well past their use by date ... in all of the rooms we stayed in (three in total# each bed dipped in the middle, I would have expected from a low cost budget hotel and not from the Holiday Inn #Express#! This will certainly make me think twice before booking with the Holiday Inn #group) in the future.

I have stayed in this Holiday Inn Express several times. It is very convenient for Doncaster Dome and offers a good level of comfort and service. Excellent value for money.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bazza01 A good nights rest......
I have stayed here many times and have had no reason to question anything about the accommodation or service
Plenty of parking space and the amenities are what you would expect of a Hol Inn Express
Good welcome when I arrive and checking and out is always pretty fast.
Most importantly the rooms are always clean and the beds are good! Televisions are a bit small but that's a minor thing
Breakfast in the morning is fine and you have cooked items, which represents good value
I use this hotel often and would have no hesitation in recommending it

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Derek45 Well Satisfied
This was the second time we have stayed at this hotel. Check in was very quick. Hotel was very busy on our first night (Saturday) but there was no overnight noise or banging of doors. Reception advised us to get down to breakfast fairly early as it gets busy after 09-00 hrs which proved to be the case..Hotel is very easy to find. Will stay here again if in the area.

Having stayed at Doncaster Holiday Inn on numerous occasions I have always found the staff to be considerate and polite in every way. They are always prepared to do extra to help you. The facilities meet my needs in every way, and would always stay here when possible.

Had stayed for 2 nights during the Easter break and can say this was the best decision ever. The beds were comfy and the rooms were clean and well arranged. The free breakfast was spot on.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by bionicatomicuk Easter break
We wanted a few days away over Easter and chose to drive up to Lincoln and then on to Doncaster. Doncaster was to be the base for a couple of days sightseing. One good thing is that parking is free, which it isn't at every IHG hotel!
We were greeted by very friendly staff and, as usual, everything was ready for us. I was offerred bonus points as a platinum member. I was not offered any sort of upgrade although i suspect the hotel does not have "superior rooms" or suites. The room was basic but clean and confortable. The bed was a little soft for us.
Breakfast was vey good with a good selection and the hot food was hot. I was surpirsed at this as usually hot food tends to actually be luke warm, but not here. It was excellent. The hotel was remarkably good value as I booked early. It is well placed for shopping and sight seeing. it helped to make a great weekend for us and I would happily stay there again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Tigger417 Great Stay
On booking this Hotel, due to my disablement, I requested and was told that I had been allocated Room 28, so I didn't have far to walk. When I checked in, due to a problem with the room, I had been re-allocated to another room on the ground floor. This was ok as I didn't have to walk much further. The room was clean and tastefully furnished and decorated. Bed was comfortable enabling a good nights sleep. The staff were very attentive, nothing was too much trouble. Variety of breakfast choices was quite limited, but this is usual for HI Express hotels which, I understand, are limited through some sort of law. All in all, thank you for a very pleasant stay.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Vincentr6 Good Service, lovely room and comfortable bed
Warm welcome on arrival. Easy check in. Welcoming modern, clean and well maintained room. Made use of the nearby Morrisons and Pub as we arrived late evening in a Saturday. Following a good nights sleep, we enjoyed the breakfast before having to make use of the speedy checkout (no one on reception) and continuing our Journey.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Mike619 Spotlessly Clean and Friendly Coruteous Staff
Apart from a couple of small glitches, our stay was very good. A very clean hotel, reasonably priced, with generally efficient and extremely polite, cheerful and courteous staff. Above average food from the kitchen and reasonable bar prices. The small glitches were that we couldn't control the room temperature very well and I was not passed a personal message by the reception staff (luckily it was not an important message). But overall, well worth the money and next time we're in Doncaster, we'll stay here again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Yosh55 Comfortable stay
Stayed following a visit to York,. I have previously stayed at this Hotel
a number of times. As usual the staff made us welcome and it was a comfortable break.
Only down sight was the bed which I found really soft - This has never been a problem during my previous stay.
Overall I was really satisfied with my stay. I will certainly be staying again in May.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by photonmike First class experience for the price
Very friendly staff,good sized room, en-suite and bed, good TV channel selection, good breakfast. Ideal location for us stopping over from Scotland on the way to Lowestoft.
Much better than the Holiday Inn at Maidenhead with it's small room. Uncontrolable hot scalding shower. Pay for internet and breakfast. Very poor TV channel selection (No 33) .
Holiday Inn Express was head and shoulders better than the Holiday Inn stayed in and cost much less.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Loobyloo Few things need attention
This hotel is clean and the staff are always friendly but sadly a few things let this hotel down and need attention to improve the comfort of guests. The room heating/cooling system is hard to operate, not very effective and extremely noisy. Some of the beds are creaky and saggy. Extra bedding is needed in the Winter especially with an ineffective, noisy heating system. The toaster in the self service breakfast area is very frustrating to use - it either burns the toast or doesn't toast at all.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by RuthS Beware sinking beds
We had a lovely stay, well positioned for motorways, good clean accommodation, the main double bed was a little soft and saggy, but would not put us off staying again. Staff very friendly and welcoming. Breakfast well presented and no issues here.
Highly recommend as a central location if travelling around the Country as we were.

We arrived at hotel, receptionist booked us in. Having trouble activating the room card. Went to use the lift, slight power cut, had to walk upstairs. Room card didn't work. Had to wait for staff to sort it out. Eventually got in the room, smelt really fusty and smelly.
Ice machine wasn't working.
Nice shower apart from the water filled up the shower tray over spilled.
Regularly stay here and just this visit found few faults.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Adam87 Friendly staff and a great nights sleep
Stayed for one night as it was a 10 minute drive to the racecourse for the tattoo convention we were attending. Were greeted by friendly staff upon arrival and headed to our room. The room was big, very clean and the bed was comfy. The shower was also perfect! Would definitely stay again, even if it was only to sit at the bar and chat to the wonderful people that work there, outstanding service.
From the occupiers of room 242!
