I have just returned from Barton Hall with a school group and I have to say that overall, I was impressed. A wide range of exciting activities are offered, instruction is usually of a high standard, and the accommodation, although basic, is clean and comfortable. As a previous reviewer said, you don't come here for 5 star treatment. The food was of a very good standard and with over 35 children, very few complained and always found something to their liking. OK, some parts of the site are tatty, but I got the impression that the management care about maintenance, and with time, improvements will continue.
The lounge and bar areas were very comfortable ( I wish i had had more time to visit them!). We had one or two issues, regarding activity instruction during our stay, and these were dealt with very quickly.
