I arrived at the hotel just before 11, so by the time I checked in and got into my room I was unable to get any hot food.
The gentleman in reception was very thoughtful and took it upon himself to bring me a food menu. I would like to express my thanks, he was very polite and helpful.
Weekend Easter stay
Very pleased with Barns hotel, staff were very helpful and friendly.
A beautiful approach to hotel along the river. Great setting, and if warmer would have been lovely to sit outside having a drink overlooking river. Only a small criticism, the shower wasn't very powerful, but all kept lovely and clean, and maintained.
Think twice before booking
The accommodation was no worse or no better than I would have expected from a four star rated hotel.
when checking in at 2pm I could not stay in the room as the central heating had been turned off at 10am, and the room was cold, I decided to go to the bar and have a drink and read my paper, the bar was devoid of all human life (and heating, though marginally warmer than my room) which sadly included bar staff, sat there for 20 minutes, and in the end asked at reception if there was
any chance of service, I was told there would be someone there shortly, another 20 minutes passed before I was finally served. I returned to my room and at 3.45 heard the merry hum of the central heating pump. My wife arrived at 5.30 by which time the room had warmed slightly, we decided as it was still not warm enough we would go to the restaurant for dinner, we were the first ones there, we waited half an hour to be served, my wife ordered a starter, a goats cheese roulade, which looked, and tasted as if had been made the day before, this was sent back, we then waited a further half an hour for our main courses, my wife had the chicken, it came overcooked and unhappy, my beer battered fish and chips with mushy peas was a four star disgrace, on hacking my way through the half inch thick batter the fish was a watery grey mess, but there is worse to come, oven chips. but unbelievably, badly cooked oven chips. needless to say all the food was sent back (uneaten) and we left the a lot hungrier than we went in. The heating went off at 10.30 in our room, and came on for just two hours in the morning. The only redeeming thing about our stay was that the staff where friendly and courteous.
Enjoyed staying at this pretty hotel
Beautiful hotel in beautiful setting! Fantastic value for money!
A very well run business.
Had a couple of correspondence from the hotel to inform us the restaurant was booked out for a party. They arranged for some tables to be set up in conference room and included music flowers candles etc. Food was exceptional and well presented. Lovely menu to choose from. There was a party and wedding going on in premises and we didn't hear a thing. Very pleased. Brilliant value for money. We had the offer for which included room, full English breakfast, bottle of prosecco and chocolates in room plus £25 off meal per person. Don't understand how they make money from it!!. :-) will definitely return and recommend.
Generally very good.
Two minor complaints:-
The noise from the wedding party got louder the later it went on. 'Riverside' but no access to walk along river bank.
overnight at Cardington
I stayed here rather than camp just across the river at the canoe slalom site.
Comfy bed, hot shower, good food. Much better than camping. Excellent hotel, great service from friendly and very helpful staff.
The initial room given was unsuitale and the hotel was asked to change -this they did although we had paib for an ungrade anyway.
The entire time we were there the hotel was full of wedding receptions and large parts were therefore closed to hotel guestd including the resturant
Got married at the Barns 11 years ago on this date, and have visited to celebrate several times in the interim.
Standard always excellent, nothing too much trouble, food fabulous, if rather pricey for size of portions. However a special place to us that has lost none of it's magic. The refurbished mooring with 25% off food when arriving by boat is a bonus we will also be taking advantage of shortly.
