    Band new ,clean and modern, great shower.

  • Older travelers
    8.8

    Staff were extremely helpful. Evening meal and breakfast were nice. Very good shower room.

    Bed on the small side. Why do guests have to ask for an extra pillow?

  • Couple

    Location was ideal however this was the only plus point

    The room was absolutely boiling, no fans/air con. Only 2 pillows however when requested more they were provided. When we arrived in our room there was no aerial for the tv or remote control, again provided when we asked (surely something you shouldn't have to ask for!) We would not stay in this hotel again. It is obvious why the Premier Inn and New Country Inn were both full (our first and second choice) and this hotel still had bedrooms available. Another point I would like to mention that it looks incredibly tired already for such a new building. Maintenance on the corridors would not go a miss

  • Couple
    9.2

    Clean, comfortable room and the breakfast was excellent.

    The only negative was that there is a train line right next to the hotel with trains running frequently thought the night.

    Enjoyed my stay fantastistic hotel great staff

  • Group of friends

    The contempory design of the rooms. Love the wetroom shower. The toby carvery next door was excellent too.

    The hotel room was ridiculously hot (approx 30c), despite the windows being open. I asked at reception for a fan but none were available. Could be considered noisy with the windows open but expected due to close proximity to m1. Will be lovely in the winter I reckon, but for summer, desperately needs air conditioning in room!

    Very modern and rooms were excellent. Restaurant was good food at reasonable prices so encouraged me to use the in house restaurant.I really enjoyed my stay at Encore Hotel in Barnsley and location was great next to M1

    Only a very samll lamp on desk and no other lighting so very difficult to do work after dark! Need to improve lighting at/over desk in room.

  • Family with children
    7.4

    The staff were very friendly and helpful. We needed extra pillows and these were supplied within minutes of asking.

    While the hotel was very clean and comfortable, we had to keep the windows closed through the night when it was very hot because the traffic was very loud on the busy road only yards away. We thought the prices in the restaurant were too high so we ate out.

  • Older travelers

    I liked waking up in the morning and leaving the Ramada Encore Barnsley

    There was no air conditioning, room was too hot, and opening a window you got the traffic noise and the hotel "fans" noise as it is close to motorway, when we asked the Manageress about why we had that room she replied (Whilst water was running down her face) that she did not think is too hot, I would not ever stay here again, a ruined trip and a ruined day off are not worth saving £20.

  • Single

    Would highly recommended this Hotel for the cleanliness, friendly and excellent value

  • Older travelers
    9.6

    Stayed for one night on visit to family. Room of modern minimalistic style with everything provided for a short stay. Clean and comfortable. Ample and satisfying buffet breakfast. This was our second stay at the Encore and would have no hesitation in staying again.

    Our only negative was that we were unable to have the window open during the night due to the noise from the nearby m1. This can be a bit of a prob when the weather is particularly warm and you feel the need for some fresh air.

  • Couple
    4.2

    The staff at breakfast were very friendly and accommodating.

    The hotel rooms were extremely hot and was therefore unable to sleep at all through the night, the hotel is positioned next to the M1 which also meant we were unable to sleep with the window open. After speaking to other guests at breakfast we found we were not the only ones with this experience. When we brought this up with the manager she was extremely unhelpful and basically told us had we called through the night we would have been given a fan, unfortunately we were unaware of this as there is no signage saying this and it was not mentioned when we checked in. Based on the temperature of the rooms I think this hotel would benefit from having AC units fitted in the rooms. All in all this was probably one of the worst nights I have had staying in a uk hotel.

  • Older travelers
    7.8

    Easy location. Pleasant staff.

    Noisy. Hot bedroom (open window, cool but noisy, close window - hot but quiet). Weak extractor in bedroom. Small uncomfortable double? Bed

  • Single

    Road and rail noise and no aircondion

  • Single
    6.6

    good breakfast, rooms where good, evening meals a little pricey. I paid £ 200 B&B for five nights so cant complain to much................

    not much choice on tv channels. towels not changed every day even when left where directed to leave.............
