Stay here. Numerous times as a line female for work. Always feel safe and can eat here without feeling odd! Staff are always amazing and friendly. Only issue is reception for phones laptops etc so makes working hard but also a good thing re work haha.

Wouldn't stay again

Tom B. Families - 18/01/2022 Confirmed reviews ALL

The welcome was warm however was asked multiple times to don a mask and had to repeatedly declare my exemption. Not that this should be necessary with current rules in hospitality relaxed. Plenty of other hotels and restaurants which are not routinely asking for this info. Bar looked shut, pool table not in service, no television in the bar, no fryer so couldn't get the children the food they wanted on arrival. We eat over the road instead. No heating in the room, we asked for a fix or move. Was initially told a move would cost an extra £10. Eventually switched rooms and hotel room heating was working. Blood splatters on the duvet, only noticed the following morning. Breakfast items were hard due to being left out - probably due to the hotel not being busy so not the fault of staff.

Good stay, excellent breakfast

For what you pay, you get a decent sized, clean and comfortable room, in a convenient location. I've stayed here a few times and the staff are always friendly and helpful. I wouldn't stay anywhere else!

Hotel and room clean. Free car parking. Lift not working. Shower gel had run out, had to use the shampoo. Shower pressure varies, and temperature goes from scalding to cold.

Enjoyable stay with friendly and helpful staff

Stayed here several times and would recommend to anyone. A very warm Yorkshire welcoming hotel.

Very convenient for overnight stay

Customer review rating 4.0/5

K H. Couples - 30/12/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

The room was good with comfortable beds. More than one pillow would have been better but I guess I could have asked for one. Breakfast was standard buffet but it needs to be supervised and replenished more frequently. My only real issue with the stay is that Covid precautions of masks and distance need to be enforced. Many guests were moving around the hotel and the breakfast area without masks. That’s not sensible at this time.

Kl Families - 30/12/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

We booked 2 rooms in order to visit family ahead of possible travel restrictions imposed by the UK government. We have stayed with ibis Barnsley before and know we will get a good bed, and pillows, for a great night's sleep. Staff were friendly and efficient and look forward to future stays.

Poor - perfect hotel for insomniac

Customer review rating 2.5/5

Northern L. Families - 30/12/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

Beds appalling, especially sofa bed. Uncomfortable and not fit for purpose as no one slept properly. One lift broken and the other wasn’t reliable. No mention by staff that there were additional items that could be ordered for breakfast. Had to ask for additional towels as only 2 in the room but the booking was for 4.

Room for much improvement.

Megan M. Families - 30/12/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

Stayed with my partner and 4 year old for one night. Room contained a double bed and a sofa bed, though bed may be stretching this definition somewhat as it's sheer discomfort made any sleep an impossible task. Given this was supposed to be a family friendly room there were a few issues; the height of the toilet and sink in the bathroom made it potentially hazardous. Neither could be accessed independently by my child as both were too high and having to lift him each time to the edge of a glass sink wasn't the safest. A simple step being provided in a family room might have resolved this? The fluctuation in water temperature and pressure when trying to shower my child was also potentially dangerous as it would go from acceptable to boiling in an instant. The level of cleanliness was not what I would normally expect ( a former resident had kindly left a Wotsit or two under the sofa bed... something that would have been easily seen by whoever was setting up and making the bed and therefore, I can only assume, ignored.) one other aspect that may have been appreciated would have been a simple teaspoon or wooden stirrer, just so we would have a way to remove a teabag from our cup with our having to scald our fingers or wait for a lukewarm beverage. The breakfast was pretty standard, a small comfort following a sleepless night though again the level of cleanliness was not great; having to go through a crate of cups to find a clean one shouldn't be necessary. So sorry Ibis, you are somewhat 'Styles' over substance; it's more important to get the basics right. I would think twice about choosing an Ibis again.

Rooms were cold and we asked reception for extra duvets knowing you weren’t busy but we got a small heater No hand wash / shower gel in room but we had brought our own Had to ask for hand towels No complimentary water and when we asked we was asked to pay a £1 per carton which isn’t even a full bottle !! We declined …….. BUT this hotel is perfectly situated for us and we have used numerous times , maybe just a blip this time

S Solo - 28/12/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

Lovely stay. Good size room. Comfy bed. Plenty of parking. Convenient location. I stayed 3 nights. Breakfast was basic and unfortunately orange juice was always empty. I stayed in room 101 and there was a very unpleasant smell in the en suite. Drains? I would stay here again because the positives out way the negatives and it suits my budget. (Cheaper than the more well known hotels)

Clean, comfortable, friendly
