Doncaster, the historic market town on the River Don has always enjoyed the status of major strategic importance. It witnessed the rise and fall of many industries through the centuries but it continued to grow and develop thanks to its excellent links with the rest of the country, especially via its waterways. Doncaster’s economy continues to rely heavily on the town’s geographic position but besides in distribution industry, positive trends are observed in other sectors as well including tourism. Hotels in and nearby the town are thus getting more and more reservations, especially those with the highest ratings such as:
The Caribbean. Classified as a four star hotel, The Caribbean is the absolute favourite when it comes to hotels and accommodation in Doncaster. It has been chosen not only the best hotel in South Yorkshire but it has also been voted one of the best hotels in the UK. What is more, it even made it to the top 20 best hotels in the world (category overall service). Housed in a 19th century building which, however, has been thoroughly renovated and refurbished to meet the needs of 21st century travellers, the hotel is located in the heart of Doncaster and is only a short walk from the town centre.
Premier Inn Doncaster Central (High Fishergate). There are three Premier Inn hotels in Doncaster and all have excellent ratings. However, Doncaster Central (High Fishergate) is ranked the highest of all three. In addition, it is located in the town centre, just a short walk from all the main attractions.
The Earl of Doncaster Hotel. Also ranked high is The Earl of Doncaster Hotel, a four star hotel which offers luxury accommodation and convenient proximity to the town centre.

Doncaster is a market town in South Yorkshire with a history dating back to the 1st century AD when it was founded by the Romans as a port. Over the following centuries, the town grew slowly but steadily until emerging as an industrial hub in the late 18th and early 19th century. Population growth slowed down during and after de-industrialisation but Doncaster remains one of the largest towns in Yorkshire and continues to take advantage of its strategic location to this day.
