    Set in the heart of South Yorkshire’s historic market town, the new Mercure Doncaster Centre Danum Hotel recently opened its doors.The opening follows an extensive renovation and refurbishment of The Danum Hotel, which has occupied Doncaster’s High Street since 1809. The much loved local hotel is now aligned with Mercure, an international brand managed by Accorhotels.

    Situated in the town centre and a short walk from the rail station, the Mercure Doncaster Centre Danum Hotel is a plush base from which guests can explore Doncaster, with its Norman castles, Regency buildings and rich horse racing heritage, as well as great shopping and nightlife.

    The hotel’s 62 bedrooms offer a mix of the modern and the traditional, with each boasting exquisite décor, Hypnos beds and LCD TVs. The hotel will also offer 15 privilege rooms and two luxurious suites.

    The reception space has been luxuriously refurbished to create a contemporary open lobby. Two reception pods will accommodate quick and hassle-free check in and check-out, demonstrating the Mercure brand’s continued commitment to putting the customer’s welcome experience at its heart.

    Jonathan Sheard, SVP Operations Luxury, Upscale and Midscale Hotels, Accorhotels UK and Ireland commented, “This hotel is a really iconic hotel in Doncaster and we are very excited for it to be opening as a Mercure branded property. It celebrates everything which is exceptional about Mercure with a building that is in itself in harmony with the people and place. The refurbishment is stunning — we can’t wait for people to see it.”
