Without wanting to come across as pompous, I usually frequent classy hotels, just to avoid idiot guests. Look, you still get them in better establishments - but fewer of them. I stayed here here on a Thursday evening. Yes; not the weekend but I always come prepared with silicon earplugs for a restful night! This place is spotless, comfy bed, cosy bar, pleasant staff & the most incredible breakfast I have ever had...all for 30 quid!

I've stayed here a few times when other hotels have been booked up & after my previous visit I vowed that I would never stay here again but I was up for giving it a fair travel after reading other reviews about rooms having new mattresses & carpets etc. Check in staff were friendly as usual but I could see things hadn't changed much when I got to my room, still looked dab, dreary & outdated & the mattress was in very poor condition like last time & I refused to subject my poor back to a springy mattress so I returned to reception to complain & was given another room. The mattress in this room was in much better shape & seemed quite new, also noticed that the tvs had been replaced even though there was nothing wrong with the old ones, maybe the money should have been spent on paint! Upon further inspection of the room I noticed not much else had changed, the bathroom ceiling was covered in mould probably due to the fact the extractor fan wasn't working, when I went to switch the main room light on I received a shock from the switch at the side of the bed, the socket for the kettle was dead & the socket behind the tv could not be turned off & it wasn't until I tried to get some sleep I discovered the main room light was lit very dimly even though it was switched off, but I shouldn't have been surprised due to the state of the electrics in this place & wasn't very good as I can't sleep unless it's pitch black. Would I stay again? only if I really had to

Unfamiliar with the area and attending an event at The Dome we booked a twin room for an overnight stay. Despite looking tired and in need of some TLC, there were plenty of positive to make our stay worthwhile. On arrival we checked in with ease. The staff were really welcoming and we settled in with a drink from the bar. We were given a ground floor room (8) and whilst basic it had all we needed. The room was well heated and the beds were extremely comfortable, with a good TV, tea-making facilities, hairdryer and good lighting. There were limited electrical sockets but we were able to unplug the TV so no difficulty there. The room wasn't overly spacious and there was limited room for baggage, but again this didn't cause us any difficulty. The shower facilities in the bathroom were unfortunately a little worse for wear and badly need updating, but everything else was functional so no complaints. The Hotels restaurant opened at 6 and with our event at the dome staring at half seven we asked if we could order meals in advance so as to avoid any delay. Again the staff were really helpful and accommodating and the meals themselves were really good. we couldn't have been more satisfied. Breakfast was not a disappointment either, it offered a continental style but we opted for the full English and it really was lovely. Overall our stay here was great, the staff are excellent and on a budget for an overnight stay we would definitely stay here again.

Really great for an overnight stay. The room was very warm, heater blowing and there was everything i needed. Plenty of space in the bathroom; bed was comfortable; room was clean and Paul, the receptionist, could not have been more helpful and kind, both when I arrived in the dead of night and freezing cold and also when I checked out in the morning.

Stayed at the Campanile over the weekend, was really great, we arrived very late but Ann Marie was there to welcome us, she even gave us some extra pillows. Paul the other manager was also very helpful. Really great staff, and great place to stay for a whistle stop visit, will be back

Campanile Hotel Doncaster Billeted overnight at Doncaster’s Campanile Hotel I have scored a ‘first’ as the evening and night spent there were the worst I have ever encountered in any Hotel in the UK. I had already surmised on my arrival at the gloomy and basic reception/bar/restaurant area that my stay there would be absolutely without frills, and that the very name ‘restaurant’ was misplaced. I won’t describe what was eventually put before me on a plate, which simply couldn’t be finished, but given that my colleagues had ordered only slightly better Chinese food it made me suspicious that the kitchen might principally be a ‘freezer to microwave’ operation with the most minimal culinary skills in place. Beyond this dismal eating experience it was time to turn in. The bedrooms across a car park from the main building had been built as a cellular structure on ground and first floors, my own ‘cell’ being a carbon copy of its neighbours. Save for a very comfortable King Size bed it had the very simplest basic fixtures and fittings. Although the room itself was quite clean there were signs of careless maintenance otherwise, a bedside light bulb being missing. Across the night, however, there was ample evidence that the entire bedroom block had been built severely ‘down to a price’ which took no account whatever of an adequate provision of sound insulation between rooms. Animated conversations (even their heated arguments) could be heard quite clearly right through the night from occupants of an adjacent ‘cell’ to my own causing both me (and by extension themselves) not a single wink of sleep whatever. The Campanile may well be a super-budget hotel but sleep is priceless, and for that reason the resulting stay has been at disproportionate cost to myself. I have further reports from my weekend colleagues of flickering lights in bathrooms and of a nasty stained yellow patch at the bottom of a bath.....clearly a complete refurbishment of this rather sad hotel is long overdue. In my much rattled sleepless state as dawn broke this morning I had two choice words to describe Doncaster’s Campanile Hotel: ‘Best Avoided !’

We stayed over night on 27th Jan and were pleasantly surprise ,very basic room but clean and had everything you need ,hairdryer TV tea/coffee making facilities ,very helpful staff nothing was too much for them ,will definately be staying again

Good budget hotel for one or two night stopover. Rooms and bathroom clean . I have used this brand all over France but never in the UK The hosts were very pleasant and went out of their way to make us feel welcome. Would definately stay again if in the area

We travelled up to Doncaster on a very cold day in January. The welcome was warm and professional. After we had finished working at the Dome, in the evening, the Campanile chef had made excellent bacon butties for the whole band. The next morning each breakfast was individually and freshly cooked. The motel has chalet bedrooms facing the main building. Each bedroom has adequate heating, particularly on a very cold night.

I stay in hotels regularly for work so I was a little concerned when reading some of the reviews about this small hotel ,but I was only going to be here for one night , on arriving I checked in to my room ,and found it to be very clean and it had everything that was needed including tea/ coffee and the bed was comfortable , so I was happy to find that my concerns were unnecessary ! After the event I was attending at the dome next door to this hotel a group of us arrived back for drinks and to relax for a while in the bar area , the Manager his wife and a member of staff could not have done more to make our stay any better they even organised bacon rolls at no charge for us and allowed us to have snacks we purchased from outside vendors. (so helpful) After a good nights sleep I arrived for breakfast to be greeted by Sam and his wife with a big smile and had what I can only say was a very good full English breakfast with lots of other choices available ! So if your looking for a good budget hotel don’t believe all you read about this great little hotel I FOUND IT VERY GOOD and the staff very helpful,, Thanks
