Our room was on the second floor a double with shower, sink and loo. The hotel is on a par with Holiday Inn Express or Ibis. Breakfast was... More

Travelling back from Northumbria and wanting to visit the Yorkshire Sculpture Park I was looking for a bed for the night somewhere near Junction 37 or 38 on the M1. This was the sixth hotel tried and we were lucky. Despite having a wedding reception in full swing we were welcomed, given a room on the 3rd floor so as... More

The hotel isn't in the most central part of Barnsley, but the rooms are nice and comfortable. Wired internet in room was good, could only get the WIFI in public areas though. Breast was good and reasonably priced for a hotel. Convenient location for the motorway. Staff were very friendly!

Have just spent a weekend at this hotel. Very impressed with the room which was very spacious and clean. Good facilities provided and comfortable bed. There is a downside however.
