No reflection on the staff at all, the check in was easy and pleasant. The room was the problem. The whole accommodation 'block' is old, run down and off putting but it was when I opened the door to my room that I knew I couldn't stay here. The smell nearly knocked me out, a combination of fag smoke and b.o. stopped me in my tracks. It was awful. I stepped back out, returned to reception and told them I was leaving and to be fair to the lady there, she refunded my money immediately but without asking what the problem was. I would imagine I wasn't the first. Sort it out Campanile, it's disgusting and for what it is, very expensive.
Just stayed at the out of date Campanile Doncaster. The hotel ( more like a hostel ) is in a very poor state, our room was in urgent need of redecorating and new carpets. Our room smelt fusty also smelt of dogs. The tea making facilities consisted of tea,coffee,sugar and milk that you cannot open without cutting it open. The tea / coffee cups are made of paper and have wooden sticks to stir your drink with. We asked at reception why they did not have proper cups and spoons and we were told contractors use the hotel a lot and they take the cups and spoons with them so they provide paper cups.We went into the restaurant to have an evening meal and saw that a lady having a meal there was also feeding her dog we walked straight out. I have never seen a pet dog in a hotel restaurant before. The couple staying in a room three rooms from us let their dog use the lawn in front of our room to to make a mess and did not clean it up. We also called into the bar for a pint and in was £4.50 a pint of lager ( it is only £2 a pint in the Black Bull in Doncaster ) My advise is book a proper hotel in Doncster and not this one.
The main bar area has been redocorated but the rooms are still not completed. Sadly going to seed. Poor lighting, thin walls. You can clearly hear the 'honeymoon couple' in the next room. Breakfast has improved with a full 'English' cooked to order now available.
Another budget room booked by my company. Reminds me of a Butlins Chalet back in the late 60's. The room is so dimmly lit you can't really check out the cleaning standard and do any paperwork is out of the question. There has certainly not been any investment in the hotel apart from putting in a flat screen TV. The bathroom needs a rip out and refurb and as for that bar heater in the bathroom. Really? What's wrong with towel rads? There's a wardrobe light mounted on the wall that's neither use nor ornament. I'm struggling to find any positives to write about the place. As I struggle to find words to write this the following morning, I note two bites I didn't have before I went to bed to try and get a restful sleep. A restful sleep is out of the question. What with the couple in the next room having a very heated discussion, the guy next door snoring and people walking along the 1st floor walk way I probably would have had more sleep in my vehicle. So £45 a night gets you this. Personally I think that's twice the price it should be.
receptionist was extremely rude, rooms are small damp and feel very unclean. only two electrical sockets, one of them is for the television. this place needs a complete freshen up or pulled down. if they had advertised the place as a cheap place to stop my review may have been different. However they have the cheek to charge main stream hotel rates for what is a dank chalet. i wouldn't even pay £30 to stay here.
Worst hotel I've ever stayed In, my room smells like someone died In it! Awful I don't think I can actually stay over In it- been here 10 mins and want to throw up! Would not recommend to anyone! It needs shutting down
The hotel reception, bar and breakfast was pleasant. The rooms are very dated, lacking style and comfort. Would not recommend this Campanile. Needs a lot invested to bring it to a good quality hotel. Please see photo, the bathroom tap was broken. Very hot water would scald some one badly.
When we arrived we thought what have we done, but don't judge a book by its cover. When we got in our room, it was clean, warm, plenty of hot water, the bed was very comfortable with clean white sheets, clean towels which was change daily, tea and coffee in the room. We had breakfast in morning which was cooked to order which arrived hot, we also had evening meal which was lovely, we really enjoyed our food and also our stay, Natalie on the reception was very friendly and polite we would stay there again.
After falling over a sign on the floor we checked into our room and the staines on all the walls hit us first, following onto the staines on the carpet looking like someone had used the wall ax a toilet. The bathroom was brown with filth and tiles were falling off the shower wall. Tea and coffee was on offer but we couldnt bring ourselves to think about drinking it. The bed sheets were hard and crunchy plastic and the fitted sheet would not stay on bed revealing a brown matress! We definetly will not be returning and would not reccommend!
The picture below was the only picture taken if the bathroom ceiling. The rooms were dreadful. We had booked this for a business trip working in the area. One of the guys didn't even get in the bed he said it was so bad. There was a hole in one of the baths and cracks in the toilet. The way it was described to me was it was like a room from an American horror movie. Mould and fungus on the walls and ceilings. They were offered 2 different rooms to move to. They were just as bad.
