Veryclean breakfast very good every thing there you could wish for No bad points
Friendly atmosphere and staff. Located handily for both Barnsley centre and South Yorkshire countryside Everything was fine
very enjoyable stay.Comparers very favourable with competitors. nothing.
The calm air and proffessionalism of all the staff, made me feel very welcome and secure. The checking out time could have been a little later at the weekends.
Easy to find, be easier if direction of travel on M62 was mentioned Radio facility did not work
The hotel was warm, friendly and clean. The breakfast was particularly good as it was cooked fresh.
Really helpful staff Hotel is shabby and needs updating
It was convenient to the M62 The Television did not have cefax, Breakfast was extra
Hotel location close to city and highway
The breakfast choice was very good The bed & pillows were very hard
location and pool
Well mannered helpfull staff.Good facilities and set just out of town away from noise.Good standard of cleanliness Menu in restaurant not very accomodating.Not a lot to choose from
The hotel was quite good in all areas I thought the quality of food for dinner and breakfast was very poor
Hotel needed some TLC around the edges but staff very helpful. Good value. Furrniture in the room needed updating.
The staff were very welcoming and helpful eg we were able to leave our luggage and pick it up later. The room was clean, quiet and pleasant and the facilities good. Nothing...all good
Good breakfast, excellent staff, clean and comfortable room. No bar or lounge.
The staff were extremely helpful, polite, and welcoming on every level. the rooms were very warm and very clean, and we had an excellent nights sleep. The breakfasts were freshly cooked to order and there was plenty of variety. The hotel was very close to the town centre.
I found the cambridge lodge to be in great location, staff friendly and room very clean and comfortable
helpful staff, lovely and warm on a freezing weekend, comfey beds, and central to city. no bar, but reccommended great real ale pub 5mins walk away.
The staff were excellent, made sure everything was to our satisfaction. Nothing
Pleasant staff, comfortable room. Good breakfast, good price. Central location None
Very central, friendly staff. Comfy room. None whatsoever
Attentive and eager to please staff. Good breakfast Central location makes for easy walking to town centre Some aspects of cleaning.
the staff were extremely helpful
cleanliness & helpfullness of staff
Hnady for the motorway, clean and well presented.
The room was very clean and comfortable, the staff were friendly and polite and I had a most enjoyable breakfast great poached eggs! I didn't enjoy the evening meal that I ordered expected fresh veg and not frozen.
the staff were friendly and welcoming and also the rooms were of a excellent standard i would definatelly stop there again.
Overall,were impressed by hotel facilities and staff,as well as standard of food Were unable to take lunch when we arrived at 12pm ,and were directed to a Sainsburys cafe one mile away by a staff member - not blaming girl at reception who was very pleasant and apologetic,but surely lunch at lunchtime,in a hotel is `par for the course?`
type of room for the amount of money
No complaints at all None
Easy to reach from M1, good location for Wakefield. Very well appointed room and bathroom, very clean. Seemed short staffed at reception during early evening. Had to wait to check in.
We have stayed at this hotel before so we knew what to expect. As before the staff were very friendly and welcoming and the service excellent. The overall cleanliness of the hotel is very good and the meals, breakfast and dinner, were very good. Nothing is perfect but we had no complaints or dislikes.
the leisure facilities
gym pool food was not up to standard
clean and comfy , good location , friendly
Hotel was ok overall, but evening meal was not particularly good considering the price also my cooked breakfast in the morning came swimming in fat.
nice pool and gym the bed was very squeaky, when i raised this with staff they just laughed...never been one for sharing my bed with sooty and sweep! Restaurant stuff were rude and ignorant, the fact that i was in jeans clearly meant that i wasn't good enough for their 'posh' restaurant. avoid at all costs...
The attractive atmosphere linked with the helpfulness of the staff and reasonably priced 'extras' led me to feel I was in a more expensive hotel than I would normally choose for an overnight stay.
Nothing in particular Place is dated
The pool, spa and gym facilities were good. The function food was excellent and unusually for such gatherings it was served hot. Both receptionists were efficient and friendly. One of our group rang the hotel five times in the week leading up to our stay to book spa/beauty treatments but the phone was not answered. A booking lost I'm afraid
Comfortable accomodation Meal in main resteraunt considered very expensive for small portions served. I did not enjoy or finish the meal and personnally would have preferred some homecooking options such as steak pie etc..
Food in restaurant was not value for money
The reception staff were consistently helpful and the location was very convenient. The booking system utterly failed to synchronise with the hotel, I had four separate bookings over four weeks, when I had to postpone these before I attended the system was unwieldy and in effective. Then when it came to checking in my details were never to hand and always had to be searched out. I only finally managed to cancel a spurious booking once I was at the hotel. Excellent staff, dreadful booking system. As such I would not presently recommend the hotel because of the booking system and it's lack of synchonisation with the hotel.
rooms were very clean and good value for money. Food in restaurant was good and entertainment in the bar was great. Staff very friendly Slight musty smell from bathroom
location and pub attached nothing
The ease of use, stayin as a Wedding Guest
The Staff were very friendly and the room was excellent for size and comfort The resteraunt attached to the hotel had very below average food so the evening meal and breakfast was very poor
Free wi-fi, friendly staff, good prices, good breakfast. It was clean and everything worked.
Cleaniness of the room. There was an issue with some of the services in my room. However, i was moved to another room where everything was more than acceptable. For the price of the rooms, a wider selction of TV could be available rather than just freeview channels i.e; sky or cable
Not very busy No hairdryer in room
Room was clean and nicely set out, friendly staff both on reception & in the bar area. nothing
staff were very friendly and helpful. Food was excellent and well priced. It was comfortable. Excellent swimming pool/spa facilities.a very pleasant stay.
could not complain about anything, except we didn't have time too make use of the spa a nd swiming pool, but maybe next time. none
The staff at breakfast were just wonderful! If only every hotel that we chose to stay at had such lovely couteous people employed - they are a real credit to you!
A very nice hotel in deed The rooms are comfortable, spacious and clean. I only staid for one night but I'll chose it again when I travel up there to visit my costumers.
Location - access available direct from the hotel to a network of footpaths. Swimming pool Restaurant was rather expensive, and the bar menu a bit limited
Hotel Bedroom was very comfortable Restaurant being closed on Sundays and having to eat in bar from a pub style menu. Food not particularly good and steaks not cooked as requested.
Excellent facilities and helpful, friendly staff.
the room was lovely and our stay was the only thing was there was alot of special offers including the 2 treatments , evening meal ,bed and breakfast for £109 and we didnt know about it one of the guests informed us as they had booked it . we will definately be booking again .
the pool was great - pool staff were also helpful.
Location & authenticity of hotel With the exception of breakfast the food was awful. Tasteless, too much salt, vegetables were either almost raw or overcooked as well as very poor value for money.
Great room overlooking the lake. Liesure and front of house staff were outstanding
Everything was clean, staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Whle stay was lovely and would definately return. Nothing.
Great hotel, fantastic room, pleasant staff, good value
good food, great service none
The building itself is outstanding. Food, although expensive, is excellent. Bedrooms dated and in need of refurb
Great Surroundings ,quiet,nice warm pool ,Friendly staff ,great breakfast and food generally good Room a bit dated and old fashioned
Great leisure facilities, friendly staff, food was great and the rooms were beautiful.
The breakfast! Check in! And the smell of oil burning!!!!!!!
the food was of poor quality
My wife and I were visiting our relatives in Dodworth and so your Hotel was very convenient. The breakfast buffet selection was excellent. 1.--Regretably, there was insufficent staff on duty in the dining room for Sunday breakfast as there were a large number of wedding guests who stayed overnight. This did cause a slight hiatus.--2.Our room 211,appeared to have thin walls as we could hear our neighbours (a family) in 212.They were not excessively noisy either.
24 hour service available, friendliness of staff
Value for money, access to the spa. Too noisy, with noise coming up from a private function and then noise from the next door room and corridors. No place in the communal areas for children (play room or just a safe area).
The rooms were comfortable The food was not cheap and the bar was expensive for the area. Breakfast was also expensive.
good clean, stylish hotel. very good restaurant. lovely staff.
Clean Room , convenient location for my business requirements
Wifi is poor at best. I would rather pay for Internet access and have a decent connection
Blakes bar was very nice and it was good to have use of the pool next door and towels supplied. not really no.
Friendly staff, superb room, easy access and parking
Nice room interior and country location Floor boards overhead very noisy when people moved around in the room above sufficiently so to wake you up, noisy loud guests or even owners/staff I am not sure who returning past midnight making a lot of noise in the corridors and then walking about a lot upstairs creaking the really noisy floors.
Plenty of good wholesome food in large portions. The room was far too hot and a little noisy.
the food was lovely and staff very friendly. n/a
Chosen on the net No
very central, easy to find, food was very good and reasonably priced. drink prices were more expensive than other establishments around this area.
the hotel was very central & on site parking was available, the breakfast was perhaps the best "english" I have ever experienced the room was a bit small & dated
Friendly staff, good beer, big breakfast (couldn't eat it all), excellent location for Picturedrome i.e next to it! Car park is a bit tight but I managed to squeeze into the last space. Anyone arriving after me would have struggled.
The hotel met all of my expectations no
the meals were great
friendly staff who changed our room from the attic area to first floor rather old fashioned and dowdy
very enjoyable. The hotel provided a fine menu for an evening meal but what impressed me was the attention to detail in the room. No
Lovely hotel, staff very nice. very good value for mony especially as breakfast was included in the price.
prego restaurant small room
The room was very clean and the beds were fantastic.
The bathroom The attitude of the receptionist
Quietand it has a very good restaurant.
restaurant was great didn't like the shower in my room as it was set up for a wheel chair user so didn't go up very high.
the room it was clean and tidy and comfortable
Size of room and bathroom as well as comfort staff very helpful
The cooked Breakfast was warm / cold
no one rushes you food ha improved we were fine but others were maoning how long it took to get the eggs for their breakfast room 101 we had we arrived about 20 hundred hours window had been left opened net curtain was out of window and wet and heating was off we were tired and cold after a 6 hour journey my husband had to climb on chair to close window and he manage to turn heating on fire alarm went off when in bath but no one annouce it was false alarm got out quickly and then fire alarm went off
Beautiful park within walking distance. Nice sunny bar area. The furniture in the bar area has been thick of dust on both my visits.
Friendly I did not like the fact that you woken up at 8.00am in the morning by a very loud bell which we thought was a fire alarm.
The quietness, the friendly but courtious staff, & the breakfasts .Can't coment on other meals as didn't have dinner.
The staff made you feel very welcome and nothing was too much trouble.
well appointed room, restaurant food was good and well priced
The helpfulness of staff, particularly Rosie on reception who helped with all our queries including finding a postcode for the earlsheaton cemetry where my father's parents were burried and a soft broom for me to brush the snow off the car - she is a credit to the hotel. The toilet in our room had been used and not flushed before our arrival. The hotel restaurant was somewhat cold and impersonal although the food and service was fine.
The location to my family who live in Wakefield, The very helpful staff, and the cooked breakfast!! The low level bed,and the shower not being a proper closed unit.
service limited menu.
Food was far better than expected. I am a somewhat jaded business traveller. Nothing
The courtesy and helpfulness of staff. Availability of meals. Comfort of bedrooms. Warmth in cold weather.
Easy to find and a very friendly reception Pillows were very uncomfortable. Radiator was either full on or full off, making room either too hot or too cold. No restaurant in hotel - only the Italian linked to the hotel, which had a 1 hour waiting time.
Staff very good, the hotel was spotless and the service was very good The Matress on the Bed in our room was very uncomfortable causing us to wake on and off all during the night
The staff were very helpful
Very nice hotel that is close to town and just off the motorway. The room was very clean and nice hot shower - all added up to a great nights sleep - topped off with a great breakfast.
I wanted a comfortable room in pleasant surroundings and quality food. This is what I got. No.
The breakfast facilities were very good, staff were efficient and the full English breakfast was excellent Loose toilet seat. Faulty radiator valve,.
Rooms really had a fresh smell The wifi internet connection only works at a few rooms, access is arranged in a old fashioned way.
The location of the hotel and the attached restaurant are the main attractions for us. This was our third stay at the Briar Court in as many months and we use it as a convenient stop-over enroute between Essex and Fife. There seem to have been computer related problems with our reservation made via Booking.Com in that the requested rear-facing ground floor rooms (2) were not available due to "weekend cleaning staff leaving some rooms unprepared." This minor issue was resolved to some extent but I got little sleep that night as the allocated room was facing the busy main road.
We were very impressed with Chris on Reception. He could not have been more helpful in sorting out a room for us. All staff were very courteous and we enjoyed our stay with you.
The atmosphere in the resteraunt / bar was excellent and the food was fantastic The location is difficult to get to, particularly at night. Don't put the postcode in a Sat Nav!!!
The restaurant room was too warm ...
Friendly staff and most pleasant ambience. Excellent breakfast and evening meal. There seemed to be an extractor fan blowing outside all night.
Food and the staff were excellent. The staff made you feel very welcolm
The warmth of the hotel on a cold day I would have liked a teaspoon in the bedroom to stir my hot chocolate
Stayed in the best room which was fabulous staff extremely pleasant Vegetarian menu limited, a comment to vegetarians to ask us to cook it is reccommended
Very attentive staff who helped to make you feel special. A perfect get away from everyday life
