Nice location and grounds, accommodation not really as advertised though.

Stayed for one night in October as a family of four (2 adults and 2 kids). The price compares well with the likes of Premier Inn but the setting (a rather grand looking building and attractive grounds) is obviously much nicer.
Parking is plently and the location, close to the town centre as well as a Morrisons supermarket is also handy.
Our room was located in the separate building just across from reception. My main issue was this - when searching for family rooms I try to avoid the 'double bed and sofa bed' places as I prefer to have a couple of single or roll out beds. The Best Western Doncaster Mount Pleasant is a really good place as the executive family rooms are huge and have a double and two singles. However, those rooms are a good 40-50 pnds more than this place. Anyway, I was quite happy to see the standard family rooms here are a 'Family room with 1 double, 1 single and rollaway for 2nd child'
Of course after going to the trouble of locating a room to meet our requirements my disappointment was considerable when I entered the room and found a double bed with a sofa bed. Really not what I wanted...
Anyway, it was only for a night so I really could not be bothered to complain. The room itself was okay, not really big enough with the sofa bed in situ, liveable in once we folded the sofa bed away until we needed it. The place was clean enough, wifi worked okay. The signs in the bathroom warning of the hot towel rail were not joking - it was positively scalding and I never did work out how to turn it off. The heating in the room itself was not the best but the heat from the bathroom kind of helped.
Overall, I certainly would not want to return, a really nice looking place but the finer details left me feeling a bit underwhelmed. less
