Easy to get in and out, conveniently located near the M1 junction, yet far enough to be a very quiet place. Staff was very welcoming and competent. I stayed for business purposes so Wi-Fi was a must, it came complementary and it was of good quality. There are very few restaurants and take-aways in walking distance, but if you stay...

After a harrowing 7 1/2 hour journey we eventually arrived at the hotel, having found the motorway junction closed for overnight repairs just 15 mins before our arrival, and needing a detour via a later junction. Check-in and reception staff were excellent. Room allocation was excellent, including a room upgrade. Fighting in the car park on arrival was a little...

Travelled from Scotland for a family birthday party and wasn't expecting very much as I had no experience of this type of hotel. I was impressed with the food at our party and the rooms we had booked overnight were very comfortable and clean. Staff were pleasant and accommodating. Sorry we didn't have time to use the free spa facilities.

Love this hotel. This is the 3rd time I have stayed here and it just gets better each time. From the very friendly, quick and hassle free check in to the fantastic quality of the food. This holiday inn has one of the best restaurants that I have experienced in the chain. The rooms are big and not dated don't...

The hotel is a very popular venue for weddings, functions and events. It's location of the M1 motorway is not obvious, you need to head for Dodworth village to locate it, once on Barnsley Road, it's difficult to miss. After swapping and amending our original booking we were there for a function and three nights. The premises are in need...

Our stay didn't start great when we checked in only to find they had booked us a double room instead of a family one & there were no family rooms left..one flash of the booking details had it all sorted with adjoining rooms, not ideal but absolutely fine. Beds were comfy, room service was great, all staff were delightful. Realised...

Arrived at the hotel car park to find most of it filled up with caravans with dogs running around. So not a good first impression. The reception area is nice and the staff are quick and efficient, with free brownies on the reception desk. The room and corridors are a bit dated and could do with some paint and a...

I booked a room here for £65.95 via booking.com. The hotel itself is o.k. although my room was a bit tired and in need of an update - but for price was perfectly o.k. This hotel isn't actually in Barnsley but in Dodworth. That didn't matter to me since a pleasant pub and a good Indian restaurant were just a...

Welcoming staff and everything prepared for our 2 day conference. My room was spotlessly clean and amply large with a very comfortable bed (not quite as good as Marriott Hotel's beds though) All facilities worked. The meals were very good and served by friendly staff. Good stay

Stayed two nights on business. Overall the staff (reception, bar, restaurant) were all helpful, efficient & pleasant. The room was clean, a decent size & just for once a shower curtain that didn't stick to you as turned around & a shower that went up high enough so I could shower without bending down.
