“Nice, but not great”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2012

The food was good, the staff were great, but the rooms are noisy, like you are staying at a friends house and you can hear them every time they go to the bathroom or walk on the floor above you. And the fireplaces are just electric, a bit of a let down. I would stay there again, but would make sure my ear plugs are in.

Room Tip: Stay on the top floor.

Barton Hill is a beautiful hotel with lovely views. We were received by a really nice man at the reception and the service was excellent. The hotel room was well appointed and the bed was huge! The waitstaff were very friendly but dinner was mediocre. I thought it was very salty; my lips were almost burning, but I did notice that a lot of food I had in my trip was saltly - perhaps this is normal for the area. And the portions were HUGE, i couldn't finish even a quarter of my place. But breakfast was a nice surprise, the selection wasn't plentiful but everything that was displayed was delicious.

I would go back again!

We had a wonderful stay. We had a river view room [upgraded by the desk because it was our anniversary] which was very nicely appointed and quite large. The bed was very comfortable. The bathroom had a large shower and good toiletries. We had dinner in the dining room and the food was excellent. Our waitress was very friendly and accomodating. The complimentary breakfast was great. Excellent juice and fresh baked goods warm from the oven. That morning there were also baked eggs wrapped in bacon. Every staff member we encountered was helpful friendly. We had no complaints and will certainly go back.

Room Tip: We enjoyed the river view.

I had my wedding at the Barton Hill in October 2012. We were a little nervous given some of the reviews however the night went off beautifully. It ended up raining and we had to move our cocktail hour inside but the Barton Hill moved quickly and it truly was a stunning evening. The food was amazing, the service was stellar and it we were told byall of our guests that it was the best wedding that they have attended. We look forward to spending many romantic weekends there in the future and highly recommend others do the same! :)

This was the first time I stayed and it was just amazing! The old schol look and feel of the hotel was just incredible. The staff were very friendly and the beds were extremely comfortable.
The little touches made it special, the fact that the rooms had a fireplace, the alarm clock had nature sounds and an ipod dock, and the breakfast was not just a watered down coffee and muffin there was fruit, bacon wrapped eggs and a lot of other options.
It was also walking distance from the shops and restaraunts in the area. I will definately be going back.

This was my second visit and I didn't think it could of been any better then the first, but it did. This hotel and staff do not disappoint. The location is perfect, close to shopping and downtown, The breakfast was very good, not your typical muffin and bottle of O.J.. I am already looking forward to my next stay there. Keep up the good work!!

Room Tip: I clicked pool and fitness centre. The hotel does not have this.

Let me start by saying this was the first time we had stay at the Barton Hill even though we live in the area. Our son's wedding reception was held there and as it turned out if was one of the most enjoyable experience we have ever had.
The staff was amazing. They eagerly address every issue that came up (as they always do) and made the reception problem free. The food was amazing for the 150 guest and no one had any complaints. The rooms are spacious and well kept and we all felt very comfortable in the old world styling of the decor. The room we stayed in had a four poster bed, two large comfortable chairs, large spacious bath room with a shower that could hold ten, and a flat screen TV, fireplace and quiet air unit. Sure I could find fault if I looked for it, but isn't that true for anyplace.
We had a room with a view of the river which was so enjoyable to view on the early fall morning. The continental breakfast was also superb with both warm and cold entries that we shared with the other wedding guest while reminiscing about the previous night festivities.
Many thanks to the Barton Hill staff.
