Beautiful hotel, unfortunately our day was ruined by careless mistakes
They ruined important parts of our day, and their response was shocking given the circumstances. It was very clear that once they had been paid, they couldn’t care less. Our ceremony was a farce: They didn't play the music we chose for the guests arriving The music stopped when my flower girl was half way up the aisle! Afterwards, the person that was supposed to play our exit music wasn't looking! We all had to wave, someone eventually walked out to tell her. They still couldn't play it, apparently they looked into the CD tray and walked off, so it sounds like the music wasn't ready. We gave up and walked out in silence. The reception was ridiculous: The hotel DJ wasn’t able to make it, so he arranged a replacement. The reception was delayed by an hour as the DJ couldn't figure out how to play the music. Everyone was stood around not knowing if it had started, or if they could go in. Nobody in the hotel put them straight. He kept changing songs part way through when people had already got up to dance to them, and most of our guest's pre arranged requests weren't played. He messed up our first dance! We had chosen The Conga, so he called everyone up to dance with us, then started playing 'It's raining men' - which is probably the worst song he could've ever chosen!! Most of our older male guests were mortified, it was so awkward as everyone thought that this was the song that we wanted them to dance to! We had an issue with the bridal suite, but it wasn’t something that could have been rectified at the time, so I only mentioned it at check out when we were asked how the room was. The check out lady said that they could arrange an upgrade for our 1st anniversary stay, which was a lovely gesture, however judging by the response from the wedding co-ordinator, I doubt it’ll happen! She told me to mention it to the co-ordinator so she’s aware, which we did. Her response was to point out that we had received a free upgrade to the suite. Which was completely irrelevant, and quite insulting, as if we were in no position to complain about it and we should feel privileged to have been allowed to stay there! What she failed to mention was that the free upgrade (worth £60) was arranged in exchange for having around 20 less evening guests than quoted in the package. The response to the rest of the wedding was to either downplay or completely deny it. I’m so deeply disappointed by the response. I told her that, and she forwarded my email to her manager, who basically just repeated the same, ‘sorry, not sorry’. This was our big day, we’d spent so long planning it, saving for it, and waiting for it! (we’d already postponed it twice due to Covid). The fact that major parts of our big day were ruined through carelessness, then it’s disregarded like it was nothing, it’s upsetting. Please don't make the same mistake we made. It’s a beautiful hotel - stay over, go for afternoon tea or whatever, just don’t get married here, it’s not worth it.

Unique! Wowed our guests!
Unique! Wowed our guests! Our wedding was everything we could have hoped for and more. It’s a step away from the norm. Which reflected our personalities on our wedding day. The staff were amazing and always went above and beyond. The venue wowed our guests with its beautiful 1930’s style ballroom design and the atmosphere was perfect. And don’t be put off by the fact the venue doesn’t have an outdoors because there is a park right behind it which lends a perfectly free backdrop to your photographs.

From start to finish the experience was PERFECT!
From start to finish the experience was PERFECT! I can’t thank the owner/staff enough at the Earl of Doncaster hotel, my wife and I fell in love with the venue on the 26th of October 2018 when we booked a room for the night after a day out, while we were in the search for a wedding venue. Although we arrived late on that evening the staff were so nice and showed us around your stunning venue..... we knew right away that it was the one! A year later to the day I stood, slightly nervous, waiting at the front of a beautifully dressed room ahead of my friends and family and waiting for my wife (for a long time.... may I add) to eventually walk down the aisle to greet me and exchange our vows. From start to finish the whole experience of The Earl of Doncaster hotel has been perfect, from the food, the help with planning, the staff (huge shout out to Leanne!), the rooms were/are amazing, the general service..... I couldn’t ask for more, you made us both so happy... The owner of the hotel even arrived to greet us on the day of the wedding and followed this up by coming to see me, to see how the day went the following morning at breakfast (when I looked a little worse for wear!). My friends and family all spoke so highly of the venue and service the received throughout our magical day, they were all hugely impressed! All in all I’m now happy married to my gorgeous wife and reflect back to our perfect weekend with fond memories of the Earl. Thank you!

Wow!
WOW! We had our wedding here on the 11th May 2019 & what a fabulous day we had! Everything went perfectly from start to finish without any hiccups at all. All the staff are wonderful, nothing is too much trouble for any of them. A special thank you to Pranav, you were amazing & looked after me and my husband for the entire day & made sure everything went to plan. Sue, you were fantastic & I will never forget you calming my nerves enough so I could walk down the aisle. Little details such as music being played was all in the order we'd chosen them, the tables were set out beautifully with care taken to all the finer details. Everyone's meals were delicious. All our guests were blown away by how stunning this venue is, it is truly the best by far. Our wedding was 100% perfect & we would recommend this venue to anyone for their special day. Thank you so much, Mr & Mrs Braithwaite xx
