Where To Stay At The Doncaster St Leger Festival

Living reasonably local to Doncaster Racecourse I would have to recommend two hotels. Which are both based outside of Doncaster town centre, as after a long day's racing it is nice to get away from the hussel and bussel. 

The Crown Hotel is located around 10 minutes Taxi drive from the racecourse in a town called Bawtry. Bawtry is home to an extensive range of bars and pubs, along with some fantastic boutiques, and will be filled with that electric after racing atmosphere but on a smaller scale. 

The Crown Hotel is one of the main sponsors at Doncaster St Leger Festival and has 76 bedrooms including some fabulous executive rooms and suites, a fantastic restaurant and atmospheric bar, which is the perfect location to enjoy a glass of after racing champagne with a beautiful meal.

The Crown is also hosting a St Leger Preview dinner on Tuesday 10th September with insider information and tips from a panel of racing experts.

If Bawtry is not for you and you prefer to stay further away from the action Ye Olde Bell is the perfect retreat. 

Ye Olde Belle is a fabulous Four Star Hotel & Restaurant each year this hotel gets better and better with this years additions being a stunning new ground floor suite and bedrooms, stylish hair and beauty treatment salon and smart new fitness studio – to name but a few!
