Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by sarahb36 Comfortable bed, friendly, helpful staff
Frequent visitor to this hotel for business purposes. Convenient location for the motorway, free access to the private gym membership club next door, which is a big attraction for me.
Rooms are always of a good and consistent standard, comfortable beds.
Only disappointment for me is the quality of the food - usually use room service for an evening meal - delivery is quite prompt and friendly, but the meals vary in their edibility. Breakfast is ok, but personally would prefer more choice and a higher standard of continental choices.
Overall, a good hotel which I will continue to return to.

We had our wedding there recently (valentines day) and I got to say the day went perfect. The food was great and the service was great. One person made it a day to remember. She was there when we were not sure of something. The staff were fantastic. Really made us feel relaxed and comfortable. Really couldn't of asked for a better day The rooms were clean and relaxing.would recommend the hotel to anyone. Thanx for a great day

We hold our annual presentation at this hotel every year and we continue to go back as the staff couldn't do enough for us. Our guests are made to feel very welcome, the meal is always lovely and the venue is excellent.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Philip1966 Business stay in Barnsley
This is a good location close to the M1 but far enough away to be quiet. The hotel staff are friendly. The rooms are comfortable. There are a couple of nice curry houses near by too.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by The Perls Well placed and well priced
Although close to the M1, the hotel is far enough away to be out of earshot of traffic noises. The reception staff were particularly friendly and provided a good overview of the facilities. The room was clean and the bed quite comfortable, though the guide to local events and amenities was out of date. The facilities in the nearby leisure centre were very good and I only wish I could have spent more time using them. Breakfast was enjoyable and the restaurant staff were very friendly. I would have no hesitation in using the hotel again if I was in the area

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Havantaclue Let down by niggles. like most in this price bracket.
With Hotels the good things are expected now. There is no room for slackness. Silly little things just niggle - they're not the end of the world - just niggle. A major thing is not getting a wake up call - just don't trust them is my advice after this - there's no process to ensure it immediately happens - it relies on the member of staff remembering -not good.
No plates at breakfast - not an issue- Oh - no bowls either - tell someone again - just don't believe staff care or no process. If no process - management don't care.
Not major issues - just annoyances.
People say I shouldn't expect 5* service in a 3* hotel. Well what is 3* service? It's not the quality of the rooms and comfort - excellent. It's the people things - that's where it fails - as I say - it's not exceptional it's the industry norm. I obviously have to pay a lot more to avoid niggles - OH and get a wake up call.
