I visited this hotel for a one night stay on my husbands birthday, a Friday night. I paid a reasonable price by booking on the best western website. There was plenty of parking when we arrived & check in was quick & the receptionist was friendly & informative.
ROOM- Our room was on the ground floor, room 1. It was quite spacious & had a large tv on the wall, with plenty of channels including sky sports. There was tea, coffee, hot chocolate & biscuits in the room. As well as an iron & hair dryer. The room was a bit cold when we arrived, but soon warmed up when I put the heating on. The bed was a bit soft for my liking & the pillows were like bricks. Then at around 10.30pm & sometime early in the morning, what sounded like a large wheelie bin was dragged passed our room waking us up! So needless to say I didn't sleep very well.
BATHROOM- the bathroom was nice with a large powerful shower. Soap & shower gel were provided, as well as plenty of towels.
FOOD - we ate at the pastures pub across the car park, which was good. But the hotel did have an al a carte restaurant too. Breakfast was good, all buffet style. Black pudding, sausages, fried bread, eggs, beans, bacon etc. Omelettes, porridge & veg sausages could be ordered. There was plenty of yoghurts, fruit salad, fresh fruit, muffins & toast. Tea & coffee was brought to the table. We were the only people at breakfast at 9.30, with 4 staff working there! Breakfast finished at 9.45 & 9.15 on a week day, this is far too early in my opinion & has put me off returning. You could have breakfast in bed, but only continental & it cost an extra £5. The breakfast staff made us feel very welcome & could not of been friendlier.
LOCATION- located about 15 minutes drive from Doncaster on the outskirts of mexborough. Not a lot around the hotel, but we just went for a chilled out weekend. It is about 25 minutes drive to the Meadowhall.
OVERALL- I think the hotel is lovely, but the beds could do with new mattresses. Also don't have a room at the back of the hotel on the ground floor, unless you like being woken by wheelie bins! I don't think I'd stay again due to this & the early breakfast times. But if that doesn't bother you, I'm sure you will enjoy it here. less
