This is a very poor hotel with an electric wall heater to heat a very cold room. Stained carpets & curtains with 80s decor . Bathroom is dirty with soap dispenser hanging off the wall & dirty stained tiles. Lumpy uncomfortable bed not what we were told. Promised a ground floor room (they don't have a ground floor) promised a... More

I stayed for one evening while travelling from the south coast via Barnsley to Manchester and broke the trip here. It is what it is and not pretentious, food and drink easy on the wallet, staff friendly and helpful, room clean and comfortable. Not a bad word to say, I gave it a 4 as one light was out in... More

A largish hotel that needs a bigger or more efficient staff. Everyone was a delight but slow and clunky service. Large bedroom with a comfortable bed and one of the best showers we have had on a business trip for some time! Room appeared newly decorated with a lovely view too. Huge breakfast and very tasty.

The dining area was filthy food, napkins and cutlery on the floor. The kids play area was good but dirty had to wait 40 mins for food we ordered steak was over cooked and chips on all meals were cold. Very average customer service. I'd hate to see this place when it was busy.

Think my Sunday carvery started badly when I was given 2 of the thinnest slithers of meat ever. Then it went down hill from there as most of the veg was cold, Out of a party of 16 people, don't think any of us will be back. There's much better carverys around Barnsley than The Fairway and better value for... More

A last minute booking to stay for one night. Arrived late and went to the room, everything was spotless and spacious! Very comfy bed and warm as well. Went to the bar for a drink before we went to sleep and they had cheap and decent wine (£12.50 a bottle). Had the full English breakfast there which was very nice... More

Went for the carvery on Sunday afternoon. Food was fairly nice, beef wasn't very lean though. Desserts were delicious. I appreciate how busy Sunday afternoons are for places like this however tables were left filthy and there was rubbish on the floor that some waiting staff wandered around and left there. Best part was the service; at the bar, a... More
