Just returned from an overnight stay at the Encore Barnsley and I must say for the £35 price tag it was faultless, upon check-in we were greeted by a happy smiling receptionist who quickly took payment and checked us in to room 301. When we first tried the room key it didn't seem to work so went back down to reception who asked us to try again, still not working so the receptionist came upstairs and let us in (seems that the battery was going in the door lock) this is no fault of the hotels. The room was ample size with tea and coffee making facilities as well as a clean modern bathroom. If you need any toiletries all you have to do is ask reception. Only issue with the bed itself is the pillows weren't very comfortable. We went down to the bar for a drink and was served by a friendly barman, the bar only takes card but this is probably a security measure. On checkout the receptionist again smiling checked us out swiftly and ordered a taxi back to the train station.
Overall the hotel is very nice to say it is a 'budget' hotel and the reception staff and barman were a credit to the hotel. Thank you for an excellent stay.
