This hotel had a classy feel to it and was quality accommodation. The Reception staff were smart, efficient and helpful. We were grateful to be able to leave our suitcases in reception even though we knew we were far too early to book in. The room did not disappoint and was warm comfortable and had all necessary amenities. Despite some... More

Excellent hotel at the side of the motorway. Clean, airy rooms, very modern, excellent wi fi. Very functional and was priced much better than the nearest premier inn. Although the breakfast offering was average, the overall hotel standard was pretty good for flying stopover.

Well, my title tells you I recall Barnsley when they had just the two way roads but the town needed those changes for its transformation, and I was mightily impressed by the imaginative projects shown in the plethora of magazines on hand, at the Encore. Very friendly staff and a very comfortable room. I thought the breakfast price was, well,... More

We stayed overnight as location was conveniently close to a relative and although very near to the M1 not too much motorway noise in our room 132. When we were booked in and were allocated this room we were also told there was a wedding on , this room which was at the far end from reception would be quieter.... More

I stayed here last year for 5 nights. The rooms were small but perfectly formed with a nice fresh modern interior. It was spotless! For the price this place is good value and ideal for business trips and short stays. I also enjoyed room service the food was good and reasonably priced !

This hotel offers great quality accommodation with easy access to the motorway network. Clean and tidy rooms with good breakfast choice. The wedding reception was held at the hotel and the staff were very attentive, down side no outside space (except from carpark) as it was rather warm and air-conditioning didn't make much difference. Over all a good overnight accommodation.

Stayed here on business during the week. It was spotlessly clean. The staff were lovely - charming and helpful. Good breakfasts. This hotel was excellent value for money. Ben was particularly helpful.

We had an overnight stop at this hotel in room 116, returning from Scotland with Alfa Holidays. The room was supposed to be a twin, but one bed was a double and the other made up out of a settee/couch extended, the latter being somewhat hard. It appears this chain of hotels don't do twin rooms, as this is the... More

Stayed here for one night whilst on a visit to Chesterfield with National Holidays. Modern hotel with very clean, comfortable rooms. Slept very well. Evening meal was good and breakfast offered a good selection of hot and cold food. The staff were all very polite and helpful. Perhaps they could think of providing a small seating area outside for guests... More
