Stayed here for one night. Read some of the earlier reviews and almost cancelled and stayed somewhere more expensive. Glad I didn’t.. For £57 b&b I don’t think you could go wrong. It was a little tired, but bed was comfortable. Shower was OK, breakfast was good. I would stay here again.
Me and my partner Had a lovely night for new year staff was lovely and helpful especially Sam and manager graham we met some lovely people during our stay which made it memorable really enjoyed the pool table and the breakfast was spot on. Thank you so much deffo will be returning
Stayed here for 1 night, room was clean and adequate for our one night stay, the biggest down fall was there was no air conditioning in the rooms, and as it was 30+ degrees out side it made it impossible to sleep. And yes I know the hotel can't control the weather, but for the price I suppose I expected aircon as standard. Breakfast started at 6.30am and because of the heat in the room was down to Breakfast at 6.30am, unfortunately the breakfast was only like warm and the hash browns was very greasy. Would I stay here again ? Definitely not when weather hot, in cooler weather yes but wouldn't pay for breakfast.
We had an overnight stay at this hotel. The location is just minutes from the M1. The staff were friendly and helpful. Yes we experienced problems with the key cards but resolved without fuss. Room was clean and beds very comfortable. We didn't experience any noise. There was plenty of tea/coffee and toiletries in the room. The breakfast had plenty of variety and good quality. Car parking just outside. A very good stay at a reasonable price. Can also recommend the Harvester next door. We had a very good meal and the staff were lovely.
As always the staff were vey helpful nothing to much trouble. The rooms were clean and spacious. it is always a pleasure to stay in Barlborough. great choice of food a breakfast something to suit all tasts
Hotel reception looked dated and furniture worn and uninviting. Checked in and staff member didnt have a uniform but he was friendly enough. Even though i checked us in and got key i didnt go in to the room until midnight as went elsewhere to a wedding. Had an accessible room on ground floor as shared with elderly aunt. Had difficulty accessing the room with swipe card but eventually got in. The dirty stained carpet was the cheapest nastiest carpet i have ever seen in a hotel room and the furniture was cheap, nasty and extremely dated. Bed was uncomfortable with very thin mattress. Bedding was clean but i dared not look at mattress as too scared to see what i might find given the state of the carpet. Had a poor nights sleep due to noise outside and cold but no extra blankets available only pillows. Quilts were very thin and poor quality. Bathroom clean but no shelf to put wash bag on and as it was a wetroom very poor design with minute sink. No mirror over dressing table. Room was dismal. Breakfast was help yourself but was cold. Bacon and sausage were good quality but food was just under a lamp that certainly wasnt heating it. Only scrambled egg no fried or poached available. No black pudding. Considering we paid £84 i was disgusted. In comparison to Premier Inns very poor value for money. Wouldnt stay again or recommend…
Very good service and good value for the price charged. The hotel is well positioned being five minutes drive from junction thirty on the M1. The hotel is well positioned for local services. Breakfast is served from 6.30am which is useful if travelling.
Firstly I have to say the staff were lovely and the place was generally clean. However, my bedroom window would not close fully which created a draught, and next to the toilet were broken tiles on the floor which looked dirty. The breakfast was awful - the scrambled egg (only egg choice) was swimming in liquid and the sausages were overcooked and dry, but the hash browns were nice. Thank goodness there was a McDonald's over the road!
We stayed while visiting family locally. Never again, never. It was awful from check in to departure. Parking, the car park had no external lighting, incredibly dark and dangerous. Every disabled bay had a large transit style van, for the contractor clients who seem to be the main business here. Asked reception to request they don't use the disabled bays for their vans and the person on reception told me "they don't know who those vans belong to" there was never any space in the disabled bays. The outside of the hotel was disgusting, drug paraphernalia lying on the gravel under the room windows added a certain je ne sais quoi to the place. The disabled room had a very special feature, a 1.5" metal step from the bedroom into the bathroom, ideal for a wheelchair user! The shower curtain rail was rusty, the shower seat filthy. The carpets, tiles and fixtures in both our rooms were decrepit. Broken tiles, stains, dirt everywhere. My mum was next to a staff area/room. One evening she was treated to the sounds of people having extremely loud sex coming (banging and voices) from that room. Continued on and off for a couple of hours. It stopped when I banged on the wall. The receptionist suggested it was "pipes rattling" I suppose it might explain the popper bottles in the car park. Breakfast was good! But not enough to tempt me back to such a grubby place. The disabled bathroom in the public area had actual mushrooms along the dirty grout beside the toilet. On check out I was told the manager would email to organise a refund. I never heard from them, just sums up the whole stay. I've never seen an ibis brand hotel in such a mess.…
The room was very clean, just what I needed and the bed very comfortable. The staff at the front desk was very helpful, friendly and welcoming. We had a breakfast and it was good. Not a single fault was found
