    Thank you!

    The Holiday Inn at Dodworth was nothing short of exceptional for our Wedding. Myself and Georden would like to thank all the staff for making our wedding day really special. You all worked exceptionally hard to provide everything we needed, both Friday night and all day Saturday. Lauren the wedding coordinator, throughout the last two years of preparation, ensured everything was covered, and that we were happy with everything we were doing. Her help in the weeks leading up to the event was brilliant. All the way through, clear and concise, we knew exactly what was happening. And on the weekend she was just second to none in helping us get everything exactly how we wanted it. On the actual day, she was reassuring at times when we were both stressed out, and she really did make the whole day run like clock work along with the catering manager John. John was nothing short of class, again as all the staff were, kind, caring, a-tentative and aware of all our needs through our wedding. John's timing and approach was impeccable, as well as all the rest of you that worked.
    Everybody who came to our wedding absolutely loved the ceremony, the venue, the rooms, the food all of your staff. Everyone had a fantastic day.
    Me and Georden had a fantastic wedding, and this is because of all of you, and we can not thank you all enough.All I can say, is that if you are looking at wedding venues, and you are considering this, I wouldn't even bother considering it, I would just book it! on this.Thanks again for everything! Keep up the fantastic work!!

    Amazing!!! From start to finish. Lauren was brilliant to work with kept us informed how the day would run. Jonathan our master of ceremonies was very professional did not have to look for him to ask stuff he was just there and was very attentive. Marlene was great speaking to everyone when serving us the food she spoke to lovely to the waitress and was not giving orders. The food was hot and served swiftly to all our guests no was sat waiting. Drinks was on flow. Everything was spotless. Steve the DJ was very good and enjoyed what he was doing always had a smile on his face and played everything we asked for. We was defiantly made to feel like royalty which made our day even more special everyone of our guests commented how much they enjoyed the venue and how friendly everyone was. Brilliant ! Brilliant! from start to finish keep doing what your doing guys there is nothing that needs improving !! X

    from start to finish the day was amazing

    We got married here at the weekend and from start to finish the day was amazing - well organised and we felt well looked after this venue for a wedding package is spot on.
    Ceremony - outside for photos weather permitting - wedding breakfast - then into the larger rooms for the night reception.

    Excellent venue and staff couldn't do enough to make the day run smoothly.

Nothing was too much trouble for you, you always replied quickly to my emails, you are very friendly and approachable. I have to say i am totally gutted it is all over and wish we could do it all again! if we could i would do it at Holiday inn Barnsley. We would highly recommend the hotel to anyone.

    Thank you!

    I just wanted to thank every member of the hotel staff for everything they did to make the wedding the success that it was. Everyone we came in contact with from the managers to the waiters made us feel that nothing we asked was too much trouble and helped us with anything that we requested. The wedding breakfast and the evening buffet were wonderful and all our guests said that it was the best wedding they had ever been to.

    I am just wanting to thank you and your staff for your fantastic organisation of our daughters wedding. We all had an absolutely perfect day and your staff are a credit to you, in particular Debbie (our wedding planner), our Duty Manager Nicky and our Toast Master Sujeewa. All the waiting staff and bar staff were extremely pleasant and helpful throughout the day. All our guests were extremely impressed with your hotel facilities and with the accommodation provided.

    Very many thanks for making our very special day run without a hitch.
