“Enjoyed Barnsley”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2007

I was lucky enough to stay at Barnsley Gardens for a business meeting for four nights in April. This was an excellent experience for me. The grounds are beautiful although some stiff frosts earlier in the month had hurt the flowers and many of the trees.
My room was excellent, comfortable bed and very nice bathroom.
I enjoyed a personal tour of the museum by the ruins of the manor house. The history in the area is very interesting and the lady looking after the museum was very pleasant and full of information.
The golf course if quite spectacular, particularly two of the par threes.
The staff were excellent, always ready to help and gave me a good impression of 'Southern Hospitality'

I surprised my wife with an overnight stay at Barnsley Gardens resort, and it was amazing! We stayed in one of their manor cottages, and it was very well appointed with interesting furnishings that you wouldn't find in an ordinary hotel room. The fireplace was set with a fire, all I did was light a match.
We were treated very well at the spa where we had a first class couples massage. We had dinner at the Rice House, and although it was on the expensive side, it was worth every penny. We loved the succotash that came with the Malpeaque oyster appetizer, and not only did they bring us extra, they printed the recipe out and gave it to us! We are making it for Thanksgiving tomorrow.
The next day we took an interesting complimentary tour of the gardens and ruins, the highlight being the museum stop where we were given a brief history by the resident historian (and author) Clent.
Although I didn't get a chance to play it, the golf course looked incredible and I can't wait to go back and try it out.
Barnsley Gardens is a top notch resort that goes out of it's way to make you feel special. Take your significant other there for a romantic getaway, you won't be disappointed.

Our stay at Barnsley Gardens was wonderful. Everything was incredible. The staff is super friendly and acommodating, the cottages are very charming and comfy, the nice golf course was enjoyed by my husband and the FOOD was tremendously delicious. The ruins and gardens are very nice also. There was nothing we did not enjoy about this place. We were with two other couples who have the same opinion. This place is the best I have been to.
Loved it. M. Cole

Extremely nice, well cared for resort. Rooms were comfortable. Atmosphere was friendly and pleasant. The food was top notch. We went during the winter on a discount rate. Obviously not much of a garden to enjoy in the winter. Though there is a lot of historical sites to view in the area. We did enjoyed the free use of their $60K Lexus convertible for an hour.

Though everything was nice, I could not imagine paying regular price for a stay.

A great weekend trip spot - perfect for relaxing and getting away from it all! The staff is top-notch, the food is superb, the grounds are beautiful. The only aspect of the resort that needs a little attention are the cottages which are slightly worn down; but don't deter from the experience in any way.

Everything about our visit to Barnsley was perfect. Staff could not have been more charming or helpful. Cottages were very charming, food was superb, spa
services were first-rate and staff went out of their way to make you feel relaxed. Want to go back soon.

Being from California, I wish Barnsley Gardens was closer. Nothing is overlooked here (unlike the Overlook Inn in Chatsworth, GA), from guest services (great golf, health club, horseback riding, skeet, etc.) to customer service. The grounds are spectacular and immaculate, the design refreshing, private duplexes, great food and again, great customer service.

Rooms could use some refreshing, but still nice with great amenities.

If I'm back this way, I'll stay here!
