The rooms we had were nicely decorated and a good size however the 3rd night we couldn’t get any heating even though we had set the temperature at 27 degrees , downstairs to the pub and it is true you get what you pay for , on asking a staff member about condiments I was told there just on tables and help yourself , 1 male staff member just walked around the tables not clearing them his shirt was all hanging out at the front his trousers had a good rip down one side , his cuffs all open , very shabby ,there was no good customer service by the staff I spoke to or dealt with ,

The staff were very friendly. The room and bathroom were laid out like any hotel room, even if it was above a pub. The location was central yet quiet. The bed was warm and the bathroom was quite large. The only issue I had was that the room was cold when I arrived and I couldn't find the heating control! Otherwise a very nice room and again very friendly staff.

My first stay in a Wetherspoons hotel. As my local Wetherspoons is dreadful didn't have really high expectations but this hotel was better than I imagined.
The room was clean with nice large mugs for tea and coffee. The shower was rainfall type with an adjustable temperature. Great for me as I like really hot showers. Strangely however I need a cold room to sleep in and the air con worked well for me.
Bed was very comfortable . Heard a little outside noise but the pub aren't responsible for someone repeating the same expletive half a dozen times tines until it faded into the distance. Didn't wake me and if I hadn't been so warm and comfortable I would probably have got out of bed to see if I was missing something. Didn't disturb my travel companion and I expected noise because I was staying in a busy area on weekend nights.
Did notice slight smell in bathroom possibly drains not hotels fault and on one occasion the toilet flushed itself strange .
Staff friendly didn't eat in the pub but constantly seemed busy so must be good.

Recommend planning next stay.

Beautiful old coaching house! Pictures represented local history of the Wesley family. Staff were warm and welcoming. Lunch was delicious, beautifully served with plenty of fresh vegetables.
Good choice of puddings.
We were not hurried, it was an enjoyable visit.

Thank you for your review. The Red Lion is steeped in history regarding Doncaster's racing scene, we're glad you enjoyed that aspect of our pub. It's lovely to know our staff gave you a warm welcome!
