“Pretty good.”
Reviewed May 28, 2014

Have eaten here a few times, met friends for a few drinks and been to the Abba and Queen tribute events. Always have a good giggle and good food.

Nice wine menu too although would like more NZ and to see a British wine on the menu.

Ate in the restaurant, can only say food is overpriced. I had the pie, the main part of a pie is the pastry otherwise it's a stew. The pastry was in edible althought the filling was ok if not a tad watery. My wife has the fish which was frozen, at these prices I would expect a quality piece of fish. The grandson enjoyed his meal so if I ever ate here again I would have a child's meal.

Stayed one night whilst visiting friends locally,we were only lolooking for a bed for the night but still expect decent good clean standards,unfortunately this was not met with the room given ,a small room overlooking front car park room 3 I think.. The carpet was stained and filthy and window sills were dusty,the bathroom was minute, with only a shower,no bath,we are not big people but still struggled with space when getting out of the shower and using the toilet...
On a plus side the staff were friendly and the breakfast service and food quality was excellent...We would only stay again in a better standard of room and bathroom if that exists!!!

This is a great value hotel, with lovely staff and tasty food. Our room was amazing considering it only cost £100 for both of us for two nights. We stayed here to explore the local area and visit Alton Towers on our way back home. Free Wi-Fi, free parking and a free breakfast.

Room Tip: Room 2 (the family room) is larger than most.

I booked a one night stay for my husbands bday.i requested a double bed but was given a couple of singles fastened together with a quilt far too small for the bed.The bed was unbelievably uncomfortable in room five.cleanliness was nt up to scratch lots of dust .
Breakfast was ok..although someone needs to wipe down the coffee making machine.
On the up side and not to sound like a grump..The staff were lovely qnd very helpful.. Overall a very over priced night away from home.

Enjoyed our stay at Barringtons. My wife and I had a Deluxe Queen room and my teenage daughters shared a Deluxe Twin room. Both rooms were HUGE! It was a very pleasant change from the “shoe-box” sized rooms we had stayed at other hotels. The rooms and bathrooms were very clean and at GBP70 per night per room, we believe this was exceptional value. We were disappointed with the breakfast, but overall a very good place to stay.

Room Tip: We had the deluxe rooms which overlooked the front of the Hotel.
