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.

I was dubious about this hotel due to some of the reviews on here. I was pleasantly surprised when we arrived. The staff were really friendly, our room was spotless and the beds were really comfy. The only downside for me was the noise. Whilst I wasn't expecting peace and quiet on a Saturday night in a city centre, it was noisier than other city centre hotels I have stayed in. Although they do provide earplugs, which we didn't find until the morning. The hotel is really well located, and great value for money. Despite the noise, I would still stay here again.

A dirty, rundown hotel occupied by some unsavoury characters. Easily the worst hotel I’ve ever stayed in. The wall in my room was covered in damp. There was no hot water. The lights alongside the bed were covered in dust and even after I wrote ‘clean me’ in the dust they remained untouched. The wallpaper at the top of the headboard was peeling. The bedside lights didn’t work which meant I was either in darkness or had to put every single light on. There were some very dodgy characters staying at the hotel. I was woken up at 2am by shouting and swearing outside my room. Two men were banging on the neighbouring door shouting and swearing. This went on for around 30 minutes. The toilet seat was very loose and the carpet was dirty and in need of a good clean, full of dust and other peoples hair. To top it all of the local crackheads/drunks gather outside the main hotel entrance making for a very uncomfortable experience. In summary, the most disgusting hotel I’ve ever had the displeasure of staying in.

Stayed here on business with 5 colleagues. Best thing are the staff, who are really friendly and helpful. Room was adequate. Luckily I was away from the main road, so my stay was quiet. Other colleagues had to put up with other guests screaming & shouting & loud music. Bed was clean, but not hugely comfortable- too soft. Furniture had seen better days and lighting was ineffective. Only one full mirror in the room and it was in an alcove with no lighting so difficult to do hair/makeup. Bathroom was a huge plus - clearly recently upgraded with nice fittings and good, powerful shower with plenty hot water. Toiletries were fab - neroli & bergamot are my favourite scents and nice soft, white thick towels. Breakfast was very slow service. I asked for poached eggs (not advertised) & they were delicious but brown toast was 50/50 white/brown and barely hot bread. The waitress also kept forgetting our hash browns, which weren’t worth the wait. Full English looked nice. Colleagues said that there was a man, clearly off his face on drugs in the bar the night before as he sat gurning & grinding his teeth which was off putting, but thankfully I opted to head to bed after we’d returned from dinner. Wine was delicious, but not much of an atmosphere. Convenient for the train station and surrounding area & they offer discounted parking in the nearby Frenchgate shopping centre, which is secure. Would I stay again? Possibly, but only if on business again.

The hotel itself isn't terrible. The staff were friendly. I had a standard room, modern bathroom, looked lovely, but shower and bathroom taps leaked every time the room above used their bath/shower. So obviously aesthetics over decent plumbing on the bathrooms!The lock on the bedroom door was questionable at best, it was obvious the door had been forced at some point and broken locks replaced! Didnt fill me with confidence. The Breakfast was OK (dont expect even a choice of how you want your eggs its scrambled or nothing!) but cooked to order, which is a bonus. The worst thing about this hotel is its in a very run down town and some of their residents, who im assuming are living here through emergency housing plans represent this, no respect for anyone else, shouting and screeching in hallways in the early hours. I expect the homeless man who sits on the steps of the next door building outside would have at least been more respectful had he been ever offered a room! I wouldn't return, I'd rather stay 30 miles out of town and commute in than stay anywhere near the centre of Doncaster again! Felt very unsafe both in and out of the hotel. Awful place! Feel sorry for the hotel, think they're fighting a losing battle. Its one of the worst Mercure I've stayed in, it's grimy, stains on curtains,carpets you dont want to put your fet on etc, but the FOH seem to be doing their best, but even when here as a place to sleep when away for business, its not a place you can relax!

What a brilliant experience we've had at the Mecure Doncaster! After a stressful train cancellation we quickly booked this hotel and were met with the most accommodating and helpful staff member, Jordan. He really couldn't do enough for us and was very professional. Bedrooms were comfy and well equipped. The breakfast was also brilliant, again, Jordan couldn't do enough to cater to mine and my celiac partners needs.

Check in was quick and easy and given a key card for room.....there was a £25 damage deposit to pay which was fully refundable. Room.....was quite dated but adequate, the bathroom was lovely, totally refurbished and modern with huge shower and big bottles of shower gel. Bed was really comfy with nice crisp bedding and plenty of pillows. Location.... excellent, right in the middle of Doncaster, ideal for shopping or a night out. Staff all really friendly. Only disappointment was when we came in at 11.30 pm we wanted a night cap and the bar didn't have any spirits?!...would expect to be able to get a drink in a hotel bar. That being said would stay again if in the area.

Really great stay. Came and stayed over night for the races. I was able to drop my bag early in the day and then was taken to my room by the time I returned. My room looked like it had recently been refurbished and was sport on. A good breakfast too. The location is great for the centre of town.
