Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Booked online via booking.com. Check in is advertised from 12:00-23:00. Told host prior to booking that we were unable to provide an ETA of arrival due to travelling over 100 miles. We did not receive a response from the host in the 9 days since informing them of this - and there was no small print on the booking form to state ‘check in not available between x and x time’. Arrived at property and were unable to gain access, ring electronic doorbell with camera was no use - no response from host. Rang host directly to be told that she was 40 minutes away walking the dog! We were unable to wait 40 minutes as had been travelling for over 3 hours due to traffic, and had a meal booked within the hour. We had to attend the meal not best suited or fresh due to not being able to access our room. We messaged the host to inform them that we would return to check in around 21:00 due to the above. By 20:30 we had still not received a reply from the host confirming if they would be there or not - not wanting to risk being disregarded outside the property again, we consequently drove 100 miles back after our meal. When contacting booking.com for a refund the host tried to gaslight us and make it our problem that we couldn’t access our room! ‘You didn’t provide a check in time’ - (we did, we said we couldn’t confirm one) as a ‘guesthouse’ your guests should not have to accommodate their arrival around your personal lifestyle, guests pay to have that luxury. Booking.com were incredible and fully understood our frustration - and issued a full refund immediately. We probably should have looked at the reviews, and the episode of ‘Four In A Bed’ before booking! (Hint, it’s not a good look for the host!) In hindsight - always check reviews!

Decided to book here instead of the usual places for work as I wanted somewhere to park my vehicle. There was good parking and to my complete joy a dog. I was greeted by the owner and the dog upon arrival after a long drive and Tracey was lovely , I had lots of doggy cuddles. The room was comfortable and very homely , which i think helped me sleep better than I usually do in more clinical hotel rooms. I had a meeting in the morning and breakfast was cooked in plenty of time for me to enjoy it and make my meeting , and a lovely breakfast it was too. I also enjoyed lots of doggy cuddles in the morning , which is just wonderful for me. There was another guest there going to the races which is really close and we had a chat over breakfast and chatting to Tracey , really lovely stay - thank you

Stayed one evening for our wedding anniversary. LOVED been greeted by Woof the dog and Misty the cat ❤️. My idea of heaven. Room was fabulous (standard double) with everything you needed for the stay. Toilet just outside the room but not a problem (no smells in the room💩). Tracy was an amazing host. Bed very comfortable. Very quiet stay (bonus). Very modern.

Lovely guest house in easy walking distance of the town. Super friendly owner, makes you feel really welcome. A mad dog and a very aloof cat only add to the charm of the place. I had the top floor en-suite room and the bed was one of the best I have ever slept in - so comfy i didn't want to get out. Nice coffee machine and bottled water in the room.

Mum and I recently visited with our dog Coco it was his first few nights away from our family home we had the pleasure of meeting Tracy and Woof (a beautiful dog) who are just lovely. The guest house is clean and tidy very homely. Tracy was great at fixing the booking for us as dad booked our getaway and there where some little hiccups. We had a lovely time visiting or loved ones and se will be back soon .

I had a very pleasant two-night stay at Rigsby's recently. The welcome was extremely warm and friendly and the room was clean and comfortable. For anyone who might find themselves looking for somewhere to stay in Doncaster, I can highly recommend this guest house. If I should visit Doncaster again at some point, this will certainly be the first place I will be looking to stay.

Beautiful room, hugely friendly hostess, welcoming to us and the dog, Tracy was really helpful too. Thank you so much for having us - we’ll definitely be back! Only complaint is that now I want to re-decorate my home to make it as beautiful as Rigsby’s! 100% recommend staying here.

Ideal location for the Racecourse, room was ready early, so we were able to leave our bags there without any hassle. Spacious and spotlessly clean accommodation, nicely decorated throughout. Tracy is a wonderful Hostess, very accommodating (late breakfast times) and friendly.

Perfect host, very cosy and comfortable room decorated amazingly, Tracey even upgraded us for free which was very generous of her. Will 100% be coming back with the dog next time! Very reasonably priced and in a very good location no more then 10 minute drive to most attractions in Doncaster.

My partner had booked a trip for my 18th birthday and until the day I was not aware I was staying at Rigby Guesthouse. The guest house is very secure, fitted with a security doorbell, locked unless you have a key etc. We were greeted by Tracy immediately - THE LOVELIEST LADY I HAVE MET! She made the signing in and confirming all details so easy, I am pretty anxious with new places but felt so at ease on arrival. The house resembles an Edwardian style, with a touch of modern style too. Whist helping us feel welcome, she gave us plenty of space to enjoy our trip. The room was gorgoues, we stayed in the attic suite. There was little noise, the bed was so comfy, really 5 star material. There aren't many rooms in the house, making the stay really personalised as there weren't people always walking about, just mainly Tracy. We took a trip out to town but we were so ready to come back, we loved the family atmosphere the place holds. Breakfast time allocation was decided the evening before so we didn't need to rush and at the time given we were greeted downstairs by Tracy and I believe her daughter. All whom chatted with us whilst breakfast was made. So many options were given at breakfast, as my girlfriend is vegeterian, but Tracy made it so easy to find something she liked and I could eat...as I am pretty picky. I must say we left on Sunday and I weirdly miss the place right now, we were only there for a night but we didn't want to leave. I live about 20 minutes away and I am very close to booking in another night again here. Anyone who is looking for an affordable, comfy, friendly guest house for the night, this gem is your place. Looking forward to coming again soon!
