Staff couldn't be friendlier, nice clean room on 1st floor, excellent shower. Ate in both times and the food was O.K. There is also a pub/restaurant across the carpark which seemed to be very busy. Easy to find from the motorway.

WOW thank you for such a great review! With the opening of the Great Yorkshire Way the hotel is now just a short drive away from Doncaster airport. I am happy to read you found the experience a positive one and that you would stay with us again.

Although not far from the M18 motorway you would need either a car or use a Taxis in order to reach any locations around Doncaster, like the Racecourse or nightlife. Good sized car park and adjacent to a pub that serves meals. This Express also has a menu for evening meals. Reasonably priced hotel that is also convenient for the...

Thank you for taking the time to review the hotel. We are just at junction 3 of the M18 which is a 5 minutes walk from Lakeside shopping center but yes as you mention you would either need to take a taxi or use the park and ride at the side of the hotel to get to the race course...

Great hotel and good value for money. The room was clean and comfortable and the complimentary breakfast was lovely. You could help yourself to whatever you like and could even have a takeaway coffee for your journey. The only downside to the hotel is the ironing room. I have no issue going to a separate room to iron but the...

We normally love holiday inns you know what you are generally going to get for your money. This particular one was not as good as others. Our room was for three adults was so small had no room to move around other than the beds. The breakfast area was small, pokey and tables covered with dirty pots. We had to...

The initial thought was just another express hotel,I was mistaken, the staff on both days were kind,helpful and friendly (even though we were southerns).the dinner menu was a little jaded but the breakfasts (buffet) made up for it,you could tell it was ok as the staff were constantly refilling the containers. And most of all the the price

We visited Doncaster for two nights over the weekend and chose the Holiday Inn Express as our place to stay. We chose the hotel for its reasonable cost and free breakfast and felt that it was good value for money. We arrived in Doncaster by train fairly late on a Friday night.
