I wasn't expecting a lot from this hotel as the previous weekend I'd stayed at the Radisson Park Inn and it was terrible but this was this total opposite. The staff were welcoming and friendly from my arrival. The room was a good size and had good wifi. Breakfast was free and of a good standard, in a nice setting with a relaxed atmosphere. I would definitely return. Top marks.

Room Tip: Don't go for an adjoining room if you're not using both rooms as the connecting door isn'...

Stayed 2 nights whilst attending a course 22-23rd Oct

Initial impressions -looks faorly new build -so expectations were for good condition Hotel/Rooms -I was not dis\ppointed -everywhere clean and good order

Staff -reception on arrival -very frriendly and helpful-as was my experience throughout my stay -so thanks to all

Breakfast -better than expected -and certainly worth the money as its included in the room rate -not an addition as per Premier Inn-staffe cleared the racks of used plates/trays on a very frequent basis

Room -very good standard/format and certasinly lived up to expectations -shower was powerful and hot

Nothing more to say -Well Done and Thank you -HIEX will be my default search alongside Premier Inn in future

we stayed here for 2 nights whilst attending a weeding nearby. The hotel is a lovely little place.
We had a family room and 4 of us stayed in there. when we were all in the room as a bit tight but the room facilities are good. The bed was comfy and the food for breakfast was ok. there was no bacon and the sausages could have done with been cooked a little longer.

After cycling through the mud of the Barnsley stretch of Trans Pennine Trail we were looking forward to warmth and comfort for the evening. The hotel is pretty standard - the room is good and the bed was good. Breakfast was generally OK. Service is good. Overall it was a standard stay in a standard hotel.

Dear JonHayes,

Many thanks for your review, its great that you find our service and beds good! With regards to our breakfast, we do try and ensure that the free breakfast makes a difference from us being a standard hotel to a great hotel and is some thing that we are continually trying to improve.

Many thanks for your time and we hope to see you again at the hotel very soon!

This a pretty standard HIE experience, but perhaps time for an upgrade. First, the staff and welcome is friendly. Rooms pretty standard, but the TV is dated and selection of channels lamentable in this day and age. Who doesn't have ITV2 these days! Also, the hotel seems to be in a communications black hole. I have services on EE, Vodaphone and 3 network. I could not get a signal on any of them! Not the hotels fault I guess, but highly inconvenient nevertheless. The staff are lovely, breakfast was the usual. Upgrade the TV and you are pretty much there. The gold standard for HIE's in the UK, to which all HIE's should aspire, is the HIE at Heathrow T5. Doncaster is close with the friendliness of the staff, but rooms, showers and facilities have quite a way to go.

We were staying here for 8 nights for a very special and sensitive reason. We were looked after by Elenor from the moment we got there. She was supportive, helpful, sensitive to our situation and delightfully friendly!!! The rooms were clean, modern and comfortable. The rest of the staff were excellent also. Our only complaint was that the mattress was a little dipped in the centre, but we managed eight nights with no complaints! Thanks.
Ps wifi is super there.
