Doncaster Conference Venue


The Earl of Doncaster Hotel offers a central location just a short walk away from the town centre, making us a fitting choice for any conference or business meeting in the South Yorkshire region. We are under two miles from the outstandingly connected Doncaster Train Station, and less than seven miles from the Doncaster Sheffield Airport.  Our position in Doncaster means we are close to a mass of corporate offices and industrial estates. What defines the Hotel as a corporate meeting place are the diverse art deco function suites, as well as our seventy three unique bedrooms.

Adjacent to the Ballroom is our smallest function space, the Ripon & Wetherby Suite. This traditionally decorated setting is suited for smaller, intimate conferences, but still offers a good measure of natural light and space as the Ripon & Wetherby Suite is 13.6 metres by 5.9 metres in total.

The Hotel has good Wi-Fi throughout, and the Lounge Bar itself is open throughout the day.
