“What do you expect for the money??”
Reviewed 1 August 2012

I have stayed here a few times whilst visiting family in Doncaster and have just booked another night for this week. It isn't great but the price I have paid would work out at £8.50 each if shared between 3 people (rooms sleep 3). What on earth do people expect for this price? We go here because we just want somewhere as cheap as possible to sleep! It is true that it is not the cleanest of places, the beds aren't the comfiest, it is very noisy on a weekend when people come back late from clubbing and the corridors are full of pizza boxes and rubbish in the morning BUT what do you expect for that price? There are other hotels available in Doncaster if you want something more luxurious but be prepared to pay more than triple the price! The staff here have always been very friendly and helpful and whenever we have had a problem with the room it has been rectified quickly. My boyfriend and I find the toilets and showers quite funny - they are just like portaloos and when you sit on the toilet you feel like your on a boat or something. The Restover Lodge is quirky and actually rather funny but it serves a purpose and is often fully booked. My advice to those who slate it is to just go somewhere else. I do enjoy staying in nice hotels but if you are on a tight budget, just need somewhere to lay your head for the night and are prepared to rough it a bit then there is nothing wrong with this place.

well where do you start, all i can say is avoid this place!! This is not a hotel more like a hostel. rooms filthy rotton, covered in hairs, communal toilets in hallways in showers where stinking and dirty rotton. When walking down corridors it felt like you where in a prison, but than again a prison would be in a lot better condition. beds where like lying on a plank of wood. We had 2 rooms for 3 people, one room was had a double bed and top bunk above, and other room had a double and they chucked a mattress on floor as 3rd bed. Total disgrace. This place was full of polish, very noisy,
Whatever you do, do not waste ya money on this place as you will be highly disappointed! This was the total pits!, and they need to be closed down, its that bad.

Room Tip: going to doncaster for night out pay the little bit extra and stay in danum hotel in town centre, fa...

Friendly staff, but this place is an absolute dump. 'Nuff said

The owners really don't deserve any turnover due to their complete lack of either re-investment or interest.

Room Tip: book elsewhere

DO NOT STAY HERE!!
Myself and 2 friends wanted somewhere cheap for a night out in Doncaster! Booking this place was a big mistake!
Creepy men hanging around playing cards in reception...did not feel safe at all!
The place looked like a prison! Guests hanging out of the windows!
Room 213!! 13 said it all!
Shower and toilet outside the room!
The window view was a graveyard!! No joke!

I would suggest booking the Premier Inn :) We left...with a refund( the guy at reception didn't even question why we left which was v strange!) At least the guy at reception seemed polite and friendly..the only positive thing about the place!

The premier inn was more money.....but felt much safer and just a few minutes walk to the bars!

Lucky escape! :)

Room Tip: Go to the Premier Inn!

I stayed at this hotel as I had a job interview in Doncaster and needed to stay overnight. Thought I would just stay somewhere cheap as I am not the sort of person who minds staying in a budget hotel, but this has changed my mind. Here are just a few problems:

Shower/toilet facilities were dirty, did not lock and the light didnt work in most
Stained dirty sheets
Small, dark room
Tv didnt work
Totally unsafe, window was broken and door didnt lock properly
Smells of cigarette smoke everywhere
Other people staying there - definatly a mix of druggies, alcoholics and criminals
Staff were friendly, but useless.
Yuck!

I read reviews before going and still decided to book! Dont make the same mistake I did, pay and extra 15 pounds to stay in a travellodge or premier inn!
