Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Dylan M My Favorite Home from Home!!
I have been staying here for well over 8 years now and I have never done a review before but I belive the people who work here deserve the recognition.
The staff at this hotel are excellent and really care about the customer. Many a time I have requested something that is over and above what they need to provide and they always come up trump.
From the people that welcome you at reception to Paul who cooks the steaks ( and by the way a great value steak at that)
House keeping in the morning etc, they all go about their job with a smile on their face and actually make it a nice place to stay.
I have a choice to stay anyway in the area and I always stay here as they give me the 5 star treatment and treat me like a VIP. I do observe that they try to give everyone the VIP treatment if the customer will let them. I will try to mention them all by name and if I have missed anyone off it is not intentional. So from Joanne the boss here goes
Gemma, Nicky, Steve, Elena, Kerry, Daryl, Cath, Dave, Charlotte, Andy, Tracy, Muhammed, Laura, Paul, Scott, Jim and Chloe.
Keeep uo the great work you are an example and a credit to the Hospitality industry!!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 No cellphone coverage
Business users beware... if you wish to use your mobile during your stay, this is not the hotel for you. Other than that, everything you'd expect from a HIE.... clean and comfortable.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by alanyorks too busy to cope
Good location straight off motorway, stayed for Doncaster races and hotel very busy. Was expecting the hotel to be busy, but could not get a table for breakfast and then told run out of sausages and bacon, and had to wait for cutlery! Surely you know how many people are booked in, in advance and can make sure there are enough staff, and food to cater??

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Icebucketavoider Lovely staff, comfortable clean room
Just returned from a very pleasant stay at the Doncaster Holiday Inn Express. The staff were incredibly warm and helpful. The bed was very comfortable and the shower was perfect. My only criticism would be the limited selection for the cooked breakfast. A few mushrooms and tomatoes wouldn't go amiss, particularly for the vegetarian contingent.

Arrived late owing to flight delays, and the desk staff were so helpful in providing the basics, as our baggage also was delayed. We would stay again definitely if we were in the area.

Apart from a poor mattress every thing was as good as I expected. Finding the hotel was easy, the booking in process was normal efficient like the booking out. Setting up Wi-Fi connection was straight forward, thank goodness.
Recommend this one

Overall the hotel was "adequate", one of the staff was rude and obviously had some personal issues (reception). Hotel was clean and quiet and served its purpose for a business trip.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Bob273 Breakfast Chaos
I have used Holiday Inn Express hotels regularly over many years and relied on their high standards of care and facilities.
Our stay at this hotel, so far as it related to booking in and room accommodation met these standards.
On attending for breakfast we found that there was a large party booking in the hotel comprising families with children, many of whom were using the breakfast facilities. The breakfast room was chaotic with un-cleared or sticky tables, there was food spilled all over the buffet area, no juice in the machine, a lack of clean cutlery, no milk in the coffee machine....... There were only two staff on duty, one of whom doubled as the duty manager, the other was the cook.
On checking out I complained about the breakfast situation to be advised that there were only two staff on duty and that nothing could be done to improve. I was also advised that this situation was expected the following morning again as the large party was there for another night.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by SASMan Value for money
I am unable to mark the value for money as the company for whom I was working had prepaid the bill, which I never saw. However I believe that it was value for money and better than many other hotels at which I have had to stay.
I would be more than happy to return to Holiday Inn Express.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by pumpkin19 Hotelland staff
On early arrival staff were able to allocate us a room quickly. We needed advice about getting to the local racetrack which they gave gladly and was of great help. The overall appearance, cleanliness and staff were excellent.
The only downside, but was to be expected, was noise in the early hours but as people were mostly having a great day/night out following the races it would br unrealistic to expect anything else.
Overall well done and we will return again in future, probably on another raceday.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by mazmar33 great staff but over priced hotel
On check-in was greeted by 2 members of friendly staff that shecked us in and explained where our room was. The room was clean but average size. The bed was very uncomfortable, the mattress was to soft that you sunk. In the morning the breakfast was poor. Very limited tables and the cooked breakfast was sausages, beans and scrambled egg. There was cereal and fruit plus toast to choose from. But I wouldn't pay more than £60 a room to stay here.

All standard but staff make the difference. Evening meal is ok standard fair. CHECK THE POST CODE BEFORE TRAVELLING. The postcode supplied to me was wrong and ended up in a business park.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Ras79 Great rate and nice room
This hotel doesn't look like much from the outside - rather dull actually - but inside it looks fairly modern and updated. Service from the staff was not too extravagant, but ok enough to get you checked in and such. Breakfast was a small buffet - not very impressive, but it does the job if you are only staying for a couple of days. The room itself was very clean and overall looked good. The bathroom was actually quite impressive and looked like it could fit into a much more expensive hotel. You also got a flatscreen HD TV with a rather good selection of channels. The area surrounding the hotel is not very exciting, although there is a great pub just opposite the hotel (check out their cakes!) Overall, if you are in the area for a couple of days and travelling by car, this hotel is a good choice for a very reasonable rate!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by dougalsmum Typical budget hotel, tired
I visited this hotel last year and it has definitely gone downhill since then. It has become tired and in need of an upgrade. The reception area was fine but the corridors and my room were tired and badly needed decorating. The room was very basic, just a hanging rack and open shelves, no wardrobe or drawers to put things away. The bed was not comfortable (I kept rolling into the middle) and the furnishings were a hard chair and a very uncomfortable sofa bed (as a sofa). The bathroom seemed clean until you looked at the grouting which was not good! All around the toilet area and the back of the shower the grout was stained and there was a badly cracked tile in front of the toilet! Hardly hygienic. Other guests were noisy too.
In their favour the linen (bed & bath) were immaculately clean, white and soft.
Breakfast was fine but I don't advise the 'cooked' breakfast - the sausages were horrid, cheap and tasteless, there was no bacon (not run out, just not provided), the scrambled eggs were plastic looking and I didn't try the beans! Cereal, coffee, DIY toast, tea/coffee etc were plentiful and, as a buffet, you could help yourself to what you wanted.
Last year wasn't too bad but, going on my experience this year, I will not be going back.
