Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 Great Location
Although the Hotel is out of town the location is only a few miles off the M1 and easy to get to.
The hotel is modern and clean, with rooms that are well laid out and fairly new.
Breakfast was to the usual Holiday Inn standard and plenty of seating in the restaurant areas. The Hotel is adjacent a chain pub/restaurant which was very popular and reasonably priced.
Only down side was a certain member of staff on reception was a bit short to say the least and this showed again at breakfast. Not shore what we did to upset her?
Would stay again.

Usual high standard from a HI Express.
Had problem with room key but staff able to quickly resolve.Easy to find location just off Motorway. Finally tell the HI Express at Redditch where you get your sausages, your's are much better!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Alice239 First Class stay at this hotel
I have no hesitation in recommending this hotel to everyone. The staff were friendly, welcoming and always helpful. The bedroom and bathroom were spotlessly clean, a high standard of hygiene and this was the same in all the hotel public rooms. The beds were comfortable and spacious giving a good night's sleep. The breakfast choices were excellent and plentiful, giving a wide variety of breakfast foods and drinks - all hygienically presented. I would certainly book there again if ever we are in Doncaster - great value for money.

Good night sleep. wifi not working properly so reported that. Door lock to room not locking so reported that. Staff reassured me both issues would be rectified.
Breakfast OK but a lack of youghurts. Asked if they had more but they had run out.
Toaster set on highest setting but not toasting the bread properly.

Better stay than the previous week, but went to breakfast only an hour after it had opened and the choice of food was quite limited, but otherwise enjoyable. Bar area very busy, couldn't find anywhere to sit for a little while.
Elena was very attentive on reception, thank you !

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Inky50 Helpful and friendly staff
Stayed here of business for two weeks. The rooms were clean and modern, with all the facilities, and the bathroom was a good size and very clean. The staff were helpful and professional. I will stay here again and would recommend to others.
If you don't want to eat in the hotel, there is a pub next door that does offer a wide choice of pub food and amazing puddings although a little expensive for a pub .
Road works were a bit of an issue, but once complete, the hotel will be very accessible to town.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Coddy Cheap and comfortable
We stayed here for a visit to Doncaster races in March, the hotel is good value for money, the room was clean and comfortable and the staff were pleasant, breakfast was a bit chaotic, not enough tables so had to wait until someone had finished, the self service breakfast not organised, people and children darting all over the small room.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by mandymandy Unfriendly Staff
Upon arrival I was not greeted with a hello or welcome. The receptionist uttered the words name, then room 041 down that corridor and the breakfast times. Again no enjoy your stay etc. The room was exactly as expected and was good value for money. When I came to leave the next morning I stood at the reception desk for 20mins waiting to check out and two members of staff walked past me but did not acknowledge my presence. In the end I left my key on the desk and left.
Guest relations are certainly not a priority at this location.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by debates Nice bathroom and breakfast
As promised the bathroom didn't disappoint. The blue nightlight was a nice touch, and having a door that closes just the loo (separating it from the rest of the bathroom) proved very handy when 2 of us were getting ready in the morning.
I personally didn't mind that the hot food choices at breakfast were limited, as there was so much choice of everything else: croissants, yogurt, toast, cereal etc. The evening bar food was very limited though! It wasn't explained, but when we asked what food they had, the receptionist pointed at a menu that just seemed to have a few side dishes, and said that's all there was. There is a pub restaurant opposite though, and a Morrison's that sells take away hot food and salad etc, so you don't starve!
We weren't greeted in a particularly welcoming way - no explanation about how to get to our room etc (although I won't say rudely) when we checked in, but the staff on duty at breakfast seemed friendly and gave the odd smile. Bed was quite comfy, but having stayed at a Premier Inn the previous night (where the bed was super good), this one wasn't quite as good for my back. Having a choice of soft or firm pillows was a nice touch, and all clean as you'd expect.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Borderlass So comfortable!
This was a very late booking - about midday on the day of my visit to break my long journey home and it was just great.......my Sat. nav. took me to the wrong place but a phone call soon remedied that -very clear instructions on how to find the Inn (what to look for etc)......lovely spacious room, warm, comfortable, excellent shower, tea making facilities......in fact everything I needed after spending the previous night on board a plane!
The bed was just right and I liked the choice of pillows........relaxed totally!
Breakfast good.......easy to select as much or as little as wanted.....
and staff very helpful and friendly - I felt valued!
The only downside was the goods vehicles parked on the adjoining road starting their diesel engines at 4.30am! ( It was very cold!) I guess that would only be an issue if you were on that side of the building.
Overall, convenient, excellent value and so, so comfortable!

No complaints for Hol Express breakfast as they are what they are, though do the job. The breakfast though at Doncaster was the best Hol Ex breakfast I've had.
Always a benefit too when you can get something in house as an evening meal, understand limited menu but food was fine.

Nice hotel but quite difficult to find by Sat Nav. Could do with a few more promenant signs from the motorway.
Staff were very friendly although trying to get the elderly gentlemens attention at breakfast proved difficult.
Plenty to eat in the morning but the coffee machine was broken which is nothing major I suppose.
I would stay here again and the pub across the road is great for a meal.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Gearnan Another fantastic stay
I have now stayed at the hotel many times on business and it is a wonderful experience each time. I stay away on business about 20 nights a month and it is a pleasure to look forward to my visit to Doncaster. The team are wonderful and nothing is ever too much trouble, on the second stay I was recognised as having been before. Every aspect of the hotel is excellent, I especially like the sausages at breakfast much better than the usual fayre found in other hotels.
Cannot praise the team and hotel enough and no I did not know it was six years old looks newer than that.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by CarinaB07 Unable to find and rude staff
Normally I am never one to complain and I use holiday inn a lot, but unfortunately I did not have a great stay at the Holiday Inn Express Doncaster. The address that was sent to me via the booking confirmation email was wrong and I spent 45 minutes driving around trying to find the hotel. This is the last thing that I wanted to do at one in the morning. The hotel were then able to give me the correct postcode and address in order to guide me to the hotel. The member of staff on the evening shift was lovely and allowed me to stay in the room until 12 as I had a nightmare journey.
In the morning, the lady on the front desk was rude when I came to checkout as there as something wrong with the payment of the room. The breakfast was lovely and the hotel was very clean.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Loobyloo A comfortable stay in a clean modern hotel
As usual we had a quiet comfortable enough night at this hotel. The staff are friendly and very helpful. I have a few comments to make that I feel need addressing. The breakfast choice is fine but I wish that IHG would change their standard hot food choice and include bacon instead of scrambled egg which is not appealing once cooked and left in a hot dish and the toaster is temperamental! The bedroom heating system is difficult to work and as it is noisy we tried to switch it off through the night but it kept starting up again.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by qman Heating ineffective
The room was as I would have expected, minimal but acceptable. When I entered it was cold so I adjusted the thermostate, despite it being on full the room failed to warm up and after 3 hours had only improved by 1 degree. I looked for extra blankets but none were supplied. I would have scored this higher if it had not been for this issue

As always this Hotel offers the best customer service from professional friendly staff, the rooms are fantastic and I understand this hotel is 6 years old but doesn't look it, all the guests we spoke to thought it had only been open for a few months. Fantastic!
