Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Barney hotel Starter. Okay, not enough bread with the chicken pate, just two bread sticks however Pate was nice. Cocktails are good, I’ve enjoyed the espresso martini. I’m excited for the mains as I don’t usually have haddock. I also want to say that the bread and butter pre-starter is also very enjoyable and many of us indulged

Pros: The staff were all very welcoming, friendly and helpful during our stay. We enjoyed using the pool and sauna at night when it was quieter. The reception, lobby and corridors looked modern and clean. Cons: The bedroom was much smaller than it appeared in photos and the bed was quite close to the door, which meant we were very aware of other guests coming and going all hours (a parent let their child stand directly outside our room having a screaming tantrum when we were trying to relax in the evening after a long day of travelling - not ideal!). The room could have been cleaned to a better standard (cobwebs coming from ceiling and tea stain running down bedside table). Some minor maintenance work needed too (e.g carpet and headboard looked discoloured, and paint chipped furniture).

Excellent service from start to finish. It was our mum's 80th birthday so it was an ideal venue for our 4 generations of family to get together and celebrate and have a delicious Brends Carvery. We had a few small children with us so it was an ideal room for the children to play around without disturbing other residents.
