Our stay didn't start great when we checked in only to find they had booked us a double room instead of a family one & there were no family rooms left..one flash of the booking details had it all sorted with adjoining rooms, not ideal but absolutely fine. Beds were comfy, room service was great, all staff were delightful. Realised... More

Arrived at the hotel car park to find most of it filled up with caravans with dogs running around. So not a good first impression. The reception area is nice and the staff are quick and efficient, with free brownies on the reception desk. The room and corridors are a bit dated and could do with some paint and a... More

I booked a room here for £65.95 via booking.com. The hotel itself is o.k. although my room was a bit tired and in need of an update - but for price was perfectly o.k. This hotel isn't actually in Barnsley but in Dodworth. That didn't matter to me since a pleasant pub and a good Indian restaurant were just a... More

Welcoming staff and everything prepared for our 2 day conference. My room was spotlessly clean and amply large with a very comfortable bed (not quite as good as Marriott Hotel's beds though) All facilities worked. The meals were very good and served by friendly staff. Good stay

Stayed two nights on business. Overall the staff (reception, bar, restaurant) were all helpful, efficient & pleasant. The room was clean, a decent size & just for once a shower curtain that didn't stick to you as turned around & a shower that went up high enough so I could shower without bending down. Good one Barnsley. Food (breakfast &... More

My mother and I stayed over the Easter weekend for one night on a bed & breakfast basis with afternoon tea. We were already familiar with the on-site Bannatynes health club as we'd visited before on a spa break & I had visited the hotel eighteen months previously for afternoon tea. We had use of the health club early so... More
