Rooms were fine. Facilities are good, especially the gym. Room was sometimes not properly cleaned. The selection of food available was poor.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by zara-mango Comfortable room with paper thin walls
The hotel was very nice, clean and comfortable. We stayed in a twin room and it was very spacious compared to other hotels. The purpose of the stay was to attend a wedding reception nearby. Unfortunately the walls were ridiculously thin as we could hear absolutely everything the people in the room next door were saying, loud and clear at 5am and 6am!! So we didn't exactly sleep well. This could have been because there was a wedding party at the hotel too but it would've been nice to have a room with somewhat noise cancelling walls!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Jed C Good Hotel But
The hotel is as you would expect from IHG. The front staff were friendly and helpful. Where it falls down, and this is just my opinion, is the bar. They have taken Stella off and now only have Budweiser and Peroni. The Bud was cloudy and the Peroni is something like £4.65 a pint. Try the Holiday Inn Express Rotherham North (Wath) if you want a decent drink at reasonable price.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by rocklobster ok. just don't expect too much
check in time was 2pm. we reached at 3 but our room was not ready so we had to wait in the lobby for 15-20 minutes. Also, no one showed us to our room so we were walking the corridors trying to find our room with our luggage.
The rooms don't have a mini bar or a small fridge. i had assumed it would so that was a disappointment!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Stannie3012 Great weekend away
We booked for a leisurely weekend away visiting family in Barnsley. I decided to call and book direct with the hotel for myself and my children as sometimes I find it hard to book for the family using the Internet sites, the booking was taken quickly and efficiently and we were advised of the children's swim times at the leisure centre which was helpful for us to plan our day around. Breakfast was plentiful and service quick. Can't comment on the restaurant or bar as we ate out with friends.
We will certainly be back next time we come back to Yorkshire to visit!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Andshe Better luck next time
As hotel was a little way from M1 we did not get any traffic noise. When booking on the internet I thought I was getting breakfast included, otherwise I would not have booked the hotel, these details should be made clearer on the web site

The overall stay was great. The only thing which let it down was the uncomfortable mattress. I spoke to the receptionist before leaving and she thanked me for my conccerns and explained that the beds were in th process of being replaced soon.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by dks100 Best Holiday Inn what I have stayed so far
My overall experience with Holiday Inn Barnsley was good. I have stayed many Holiday inn hotels in past but I found Holiday Inn Barnsley to be better than any of previously stayed. The staff are good and friendly, specially the staff at breakfast time.

What a welcome from the General Manager down to the Receptionist. Friendly, welcoming and eager to make your stay the best experience ever. Nothing was too much trouble. Our room was clean and welcoming. We are booked to visit again in 2 years but if I have my way it will be much sooner! Thank you Ann and all staff for going out of your way to make our stay so memorable.

I stay at this hotel a lot and if you get a good room and the right staff are on that night then the experience is perfect. This was the case with this stay. My IHG status was recognised on entry and my room was comfortable and clean.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by dandjj Good hotle at a fair price
The hotel staff and facilities are first class. The only bad thing for us was the bed was far too soft and could have done with a new firmer mattress, a comment also made by a friend who stayed the same night

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Stokes Business Trip 3 weeks
Over the last 3 months I have stayed at all of the holiday Inn's around Barnsley due to staying away on business.
I would rate J37as the best all rounder, the room was always comfortable, clean and well equipped the reception area is very nice, The reasturants food was great, I would recommened the steak and Ale Pie 5*. All of the staff were very helpful and always had a positive attitude.
The only improvement I would suggest is shower power the shower in my room 113 was a little lax at times but never the less perfectly acceptable.
I hope to stay again very soon

Resturant was poor up to other holiday Inn I have stayed at, traders brand is far superior. The menu scope was limited and the buffet was basic not a good experience

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Chris1967 Not up to the usual standard
I stay at this hotel once a week but normally on a Sunday evening. This time I had the misfortune of staying on a Thursday and Friday evening. The internet was none existent on the thursday evening completely destroying my meeting planning for the day afterwards and on the friday night the disco and auction was so loud that I was unable to sleep. I complained about the noise when checking out and what was most disappointing was all i received was a cursory apology and "yes it can be loud on a friday night comment" . I understand that at times things can't be 100% perfect but the way the hotel deals with issues needs to be improved. Staff need empowering to "make things right", rather than offering an apology that has zero follow up and is reliant on the customer making a complaint.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by me alone good standard
I have been staying at the Holiday Inn Barnsley 3 nights a week since March and the overall standard of the hotel is good but the staff are such an asset to the hotel they deserve a special mention. Every member of staff I have come into contact with manage to strike the balance between friendly and professional to perfection.

It was obvious that the wedding party from the day before had not checked out until 3pm. The Holiday Inn staff worked miracles as a well drilled team to get the next group of guests settled in. I had another lovely stay in the hotel - thanks and well done to all.
Great food, lovely room and very friendly staff. Always a pleasure to stay there.
