We stayed at this hotel for two nights (Friday and Saturday) - we were booked into a double room with breakfast included. The location was nice - the breakfast restaurant overlooked the water and hills beyond (though be aware that walking along the tow path the dog walkers clearly have no respect for the adage of "picking up after your dog! Yuk!)
The room was on the Ground floor and on the front side of the building - this meant that it was a little dark, and this was not helped by the small window. The room was furnished to a good standard - two chairs, desk with reading light, flat screen TV, tea and coffee making facilities, large wardrobe and large shower room with WC (no bath though sadly!). The room and bathroom were very clean and well appointed and the bedding had crisp white sheets and additional pillows. The only "downside" was that I could feel the mattress "buttons" through the bottom sheet.
The TV had limited channels - though again, good enough for our stay. We both slept well, and despite being on the Ground Floor, fellow guests were quiet, and we were not disturbed by too many banging connecting doors and car doors (especially since our room faced the car park).
Breakfast was good and varied - a good selection of fresh fruit (strawberries, pineapple, apple, orange, fruit salad), tinned fruits (prunes, grapefruit), locally produced yogurts (no cheeses or hams for those of you who like the European style breakfast), cereals, cake muffins, toast, croissants, and a good cooked selection (eggs, bacon, sausages, black pudding, beans, tinned tomatoes, grilled tomatoes, mushrooms, hash browns and fried bread). You could also order porridge, and poached or boiled eggs, and even a vegetarian cooked breakfast and they served coffee and tea at the table. I was impressed that they could also offer gluten free options, and even diabetic friendly condiments.
The waiting service was friendly and helpful WHEN ASKED (they did do alot of standing around and chatting to each other I noticed!) - AND they were very slow refilling coffee and tea. I had to ask for a second cup of coffee more than once.
On the second breakfast morning, when we ordered porridge, it was sadly inedible (not cooked properly and floury in taste - how did they manage that?!), and not at all as yummy as the previous morning! But when the staff were asked for something, they were quick to fulfil the request, and so overall I was happy.
I would stay at this hotel again - I did not try the complimentary option of the Dearne Leisure Centre (which was in fact a car ride away I think), but for the price we paid (£129 for two nights) it was good value.
