Reviewed January 5, 2011

What an excellent Christmas Day!!!!

Staff serving the Champagne & canapés were very tentative and helpful with our party explaining what each canapé was.

The meal was superb, plentiful and service was brilliant at all levels!!

My husbands family (most haven’t visited before) were all terribly impressed with the beautiful Lobby and said the meal was absolutely Gorgeous (and it was so much nicer than where we eat last year)!!! and they want to return next Christmas!

We stayed xmas eve on a package deal - dinner b/b . The evening meal was excellent served in lovely restaurant. From booking in at reception and all staff during our stay the service was first class, breakfast was again excellent with loads of choice . A very thoughtfull touch was awakening to a xmas stocking hangind on our door . Well done to the management and staff .

Stayed for 2 nights in Dec 2010 when attending a wedding. Much cheaper than wedding hotel. Did think about Premier Inn but Holiday Inn won due to health club. Not disappointed. Very clean hotel with friendly staff. Room fine. Everything you might want incl iron and ironing board! Didn't book breakfast as part of package and quite expensive at £10 each on the day. This hotel is not near a Weatherspoons so cheap breakfat there not an option. Would stay again.

Stayed here for one night whilst on business in Barnsley. Easy to find 2 minutes from the M1. Good sized room, no problems. Walls a bit thin , heard someone showering in next room early in the morning. Excellent restaurant, very good breakfast too. Buffet style but excellent full English. Would stay again.

This was our second stay at the Holiday Inn Barnsley, the first visit was in March.
( Please see review listed). We checked into a Double Room on the second floor. Our bedroom was adequately furnished and fully met our needs for our stay. We chose to eat in the lounge bar in the evening where we enjoyed a light meal. More formal meals and breakfast are served in the hotels Brooklands Restaurant A Toby Carvery is situated just a few minutes walk away from the hotel if preferred..
A Bannatynes Health Club is sited next door to the hotel and is available to hotel guests.
The hotel is just off Junction 37 of the M1 and handily situated.

Standard business type hotel. Arrived too late for restaurant and used room service - food fine, but didn't realise there was a £4.50 tray charge on top ! I'm sure it was on the menu but late at night I missed it. Main complaint was being woken at 5.45 by noise from room next door (really nasty loud cough- poor chap) which then kept me awake. Not a lot you can do about thin walls so I won't be staying again !

My husband & I stayed here for 1 night recently as a last minute leisure stay. We were allocated a double room on the second floor which was spacious, clean & tidy, with all the usual toiletries, amenities, etc. The bathroom was roomy with an overbath shower but the water pressure was quite low so was not really powerful enough. Also the bed did dip slightly in the middle causing us to roll towards the centre although it did appear comfortable and we were not particularly disturbed during the night.

At reception upon arrival we had to wait about 10 minutes before someone appeared at the desk as as the wedding reception taking place obviously took priority. We were not recognised as Priority Club Members (not an unusual occurence I have to say) and I had to advise the polite young man on reception that Platinum Members do not have to submit a credit card upon check-in as details are already registered. He did however offer the complimentary newspaper in the morning but no room grade was offered and I suspect was not available anyway due to wedding guests staying over.

Breakfast was nice and plentiful with a good choice of hot & hol buffet but again we had to wait over 10 minutes before a member of staff came to allocate us a table - when there is a function or the hotel is busy on I would expect extra staff to be available to attend to other guests at all times.

The Bannatyne Health Club next door was free of charge to guests and very welcoming - the facilities were great and and more upmarket than the usual pool, sauna etc. so this was a welcome bonus.

When we checked out yet again we had to wait 10 minutes before a member of staff came to the reception desk! There was a wedding fayre being set up in the lobby so many people were coming and going but no-one was actually attending to guests and I must admit I did feel ignored after this had happened twice previously.

Overall our stay was enjoyable - we took a taxi into nearby Barnsley which was only £4 each way and ate at a local indian which was very reasonable so enjoyed our spur-of-the-moment night out. The hotel is lovely with plenty of free parking and a very impressive lobby but staff need to be on duty at all times and be aware of guests waiting and should certainly not leave the reception unattended for long periods of time. I would recommend to others but customer care & awareness is definitely in need of improvement.
