Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Verified Reviewer Poo in Loo
Booked into Holiday Inn, Barnsley for a one night Stay to find the Toilet in our room was full of Poo. Of course we complained about this and was promised this would be sorted as even after flushing the toilet still remained stained. Problems in Room, Iron burnt, changed at reception. Shower Head holder system not working just slid back down to bottom of slide so had to hold shower head to shower. Had appointment so did not have time to change rooms and not even offered this option. Arrived back after 12 to a hot room to find the Air Conditioning just dripped a lot of water onto the carpet. Tired and late so made do with the window open to be kept awake by road noise. All these problems reported and the Reception Staff told us the Hotel Manager would be in touch to apoligise for this poor service. I am a Gold Card Holder for the IHG chain and this istandard of service in not acceptable for any guest. Still have not Heard from Hotel Manager and on to Head office Now.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ZoeB47 We will use this hotel again
I really can't fault this hotel. It is slightly 'out of town' so you will need your own transport if sight-seeing but it is actually really easy to get to if you are driving.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Rad138 Beautiful hotel and wonderful staff
The hotel is presented beautifully and the staff go out of their way to make you feel welcome.
On both nights there was a lot of noise at the front of the hotel, I know us smokers have to go somewhere outside, but I'm not sure the front of the hotel is the right place.
When booking I read it as the swimming pool being onsite, meaning within the hotel not in the next building and after speaking with another guest who also read it the same way as I did, maybe it should be made clearer.
Breakfast coffee was very strong, maybe there could be a choice. It would also be nice to see bread rolls.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Guimbarde Background music in dining-room
I enjoyed my stay. I do not usually give an excellent rating for most things as there is always room for improvement. One thing I find totally unnecessary is background music where only the beat is heard. If you must play music play soothing music. But why play music at all?

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by SnowhunterUK Old school, but that's not a bad thing
It is an old school hotel with good staff, full bar and restaurant, swimming pool and gym and bigger rooms with bath plus better toiletries and crucially in a nice quiet location. However the beds and bedding are a bit tired, so slept well due to lack of noise in the area once person in neighbouring room turned their vbery loud TV off but kept rolling in to each other in the double bed as it sagged in the middle. However Barnsley definitely has very friendly, helpful, competent and hospitable people working in their hotels.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Solo business traveller Convenient and comfortable hotel
I stayed for two nights for work purposes. As a solo traveller I felt welcomed in bar and restaurant and able to relax. The food was very nice and the service efficient and friendly. It is great also to have the gym facilities next door.
