Thankyou so much.
Having looked at quite a few other venues in the doncaster area to host our evening wedding reception we chose the Earl due to loving the amazing art deco ballroom, it is a beautiful room of which we just fell in love with, however the whole of the hotel is beautiful in art deco style. From the start the hotel/staff listened to what we wanted for our wedding reception and between us a plan for our evening was made. From start to finish all the staff we had dealings with were fantastic and are a credit to the hotel with a mention to Ann-maria and the afternoon restaurant staff who looked after our small party of 18 wedding guests for an afternoon meal.The table service we received was fantastic, nothing was too much trouble. A special mention to Leanne the wedding coordinator for the day..WOW what a truly amazing member of staff, this girl looked after everything on the day and night for us and really made our wedding day so special. Thank you so much to The Earl of Doncaster, we had the best day and night.

Describe your venue in 5 adjectives.

Unique Outrageous Romantic Art Deco Luxury

Where’s the best photo spot at your venue?

There are plenty of scenic photo spots throughout the Hotel. Popular ones are on the Ballroom Stage and by our golden baby grand piano in the Cafe Bar Concerto Restaurant. We also have a beautiful park behind the hotel where our guests capture the most beautiful photos by the fountain or under the trees.

Have you had any celebrity guest or wedding at your venue?

We have not had a celebrity wedding or celebrity wedding guest, but Bob Geldof, Leona Lewis, Jeff Stelling, Tyson Fury, Harry Redknapp and Katie Price are a few of the celebrities who have visited and stayed with us over the years.

What’s your favourite canapé?

We offer a luxury canape selection with your arrival drinks. Though we love them all, our favourite has definitely got to be the 'Sweet Chilli King Prawns'.

What’s your favourite midnight treat?

Most definitely crisps, they come in so many flavors and there is something for everyone, my personal favorite has to be Walkers French fries!

What is your venue's most unique feature?

Our whole hotel is unique with the art deco theme. I would have to say our grand Gatsby ballroom is a guest favorite and definitely not like anything I have seen before.

What part of your business are you most proud of?

We are always proud of our staff. Our venue is stunning, however our staff are always here ensuring all our weddings run smoothly, we couldn't do this without them!
