“Meeting & Conferencing”
Reviewed 27 June 2014

We held a business meeting for 6 delegates on the 26th June 2014 in the Tarleton Suite, the communication when booking the room was exceptional, Sarah was particularly helpful in booking the room, and organising the relevant refreshments and lunch. Confirmation of our requirements were sent quickly and a call was made the day before the meeting to confirm details.
The room was fantastic, with all requirements more than met by the team at the Holiday Inn, who were extremely helpful on arrival, were non intrusive during the meeting, and polite throughout. The refreshments and lunch were of a very good quality, and the rooms was decorated and set up perfectly for our needs.
To conclude, I would highly recommend the Holiday Inn for any business meetings or conferences as it is more than suitable and the team at the Holiday Inn served us very well.

Our 3 nights in Barnsley Holiday Inn were delightful. Room was immaculately clean as was rest of the hotel. Staff were all friendly and helpful. Breakfast was very good and my daily request for hot water (coffee too strong for me!) was delivered in couple of minutes. The dinner for our army reunion was excellent. A big bonus was having the use of the leisure centre next door! The hairdresser at the centre was also excellent.
The following is an observation not a complaint!! Bedroom must have been designed by a man for a man! Not enough drawer space and the only shelf in the wardrobe was so high only someone 6' 5". Tall could reach it!! Looking forward to our next stay in Barnsley!

Spent a weekend at this hotel and have to say how friendly, helpful and obliging are the staff. Having the use of the Spa, with excellent facilities, adjacent to the hotel was an added bonus. Hope to stay there in the future.

OK 5 1/2 hours driving to get home so decided to stop the night half way. Opted for this hotel as it was close to motorways and a deluxe room at £94 seemed too good to be true.
Found hotel OK, reception staff were fine, room was great ... and thats where the nice stuff ends.
Ordered room service two jacket potatoes with chilli and tuna. After several call backs from the restaurant to verify minor details my food arrived 30 minutes later. I use the term food loosley (see pic) I have never seen jacket potatoes cooked so badly that I had to take a photo as no one would have believed me. By now it was 9pm so having eaten the tuna and chilli and leaving the potatoes I tried to get some sleep.
OK now I know hotels have exterior air conditioning units which can be noisy but when it seems you have the entire hotels worth outside my window (and its a deluxe room to boot) I struggle to nod off.
I got to 10:30 and was so awake I decided to check out and drive the 3 hours home.
What was interesting and somewhat disappointing is that the reception staff didnt ask why I was checking out and made it even more galling as I didnt have the opportunity to tell them.
So the moral of this story is - when your half way home and happen to be in Barnsley - keep driving (unless you know of a good hotel in the area)

Room Tip: keep driving until you find a good hotel

We attended a private function at this hotel which was the second time we had stayed at this hotel. Although our first stay at this venue was generally good, there was an obvious improvement on this occasion. The function was brilliant and the food we were served was of excellent quality. Well done to all and a big thank you for a splendid evening.

I was dubious about visiting a Holiday Inn after a previous experience but this changed my mind...well done to all concerned. The executive room was large and airy with a big comfortable bed and a choice of pillows. The floor to ceiling windows looked out over a grassy parkland with lots of trees. The bathroom was luxurious with excellent towels and a great selection of toiletries and goodies. A very good choice of teas and coffee with the welcome addition of a fridge. There is a pool, a gym and a lovely courtyard that would be lovely to sit in on summer evenings...it was chilly when we visited so we sat in the bar where a very efficient bar manager served us. She was an excellent example of how it is done. We ate in the restaurant and the food was good. The staff are young but well trained and pleasant. Breakfast next morning was very busy because a large wedding party was in. There was plenty of well prepared hot and cold food but they need a new toaster because that was slow enough to cause a bottle neck! Over all very good and I will happily return.

Room Tip: Upgrade to executive...you're worth it and so is this!
