“Cannot wait to return”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 13, 2013

Me and my boyfriend stayed here after a concert at the Motorpoint arena, its a really short tram ride away and really convienent. The staff were ever so helpful and really bent over backwards at every opportunity.

We stayed in a spa room with a jacuzzi bath and was well worth the money. The room was enormous, so was the bathroom. Bathroom bigger than some hotel rooms! Really nothing to fault, immacutely clean, choice of pillows, complimentary drinks and snacks.. big comfy double bed. Lots of plugs, hairdryer. His and hers bathrobes..

The hotel is a perfect combination of tradition and character with modern and sylish. Photos do not do it justice.

Possible wedding venue for us!

((The room was a little hot, we couldnt find a thermostat but we did find a fan so easily solved!))

Thank you for your great review of our hotel.

It was a pleasure to read how much you enjoyed our spa room with Jacuzzi bath.
As a hotel we strive to keep the heritage of the hotel but still offer all modern conveniences without taking away from the hotels character.

We would be delighted for you to return and someone in our weddings team will show you around and give you a tour of what we offer for weddings, such as our grand ballroom perfect for weddings breakfasts and evening parties.

Thank you once again for your kind review and we hope to welcome you back on your next visit to Sheffield and the possibility of hosting your wedding.

Brilliant for the price. The staff were super helpful and very friendly too. Paige on reception was great. The hotel has had a refit and although its not the Savoy its a lovely hotel with a nice atmosphere. The bathroom was large with a cracking big bath. Situated in a good location for Sheffield and perfect for business in the area. I found the bar was a little expensive for the area (about £3.50 a pint which normal for London but pricey for north of the country. I expected a run of the mill premier inn type hotel and was pleasantly surprised. The staff make it special though

Room Tip: 336! Very nice, good size and very nice bathroom

the room was nice, spacious and clean. the staff were helpful and friendly.
we ate in the restaurant which unfortunately let the experience down. the food we had was well cooked however the selection was poor with a number of items unavailable. the restaurant was small especially given the size of the hotel with tables very close to one another.

would return but would eat elsewhere.

WOW were our first words when entering this hotel, it was so nice with many original features.
Our room was large and well proportioned, the bathroom was lovely and fresh and new. Would stay here again.

What a pleasant surprise to find a Holiday Inn with such character. This was a Victorian Railway Hotel and many of the public rooms of the hotel have been renovated to show the beauty and splendour of the original features, especially the ceilings, the best being the Grand Ballroom. It is also worth using the main staircase instead of the lift as it rivals that in the Grand Hotel, Brighton, which is often admired.

We had a standard room on the third floor which was spacious with two double beds and furnished in the usual Holiday Inn style. The bathroom was small, but modern and well fitted.

The staff we met were all pleasant and helpful. Mr. Beck kindly told us some of the history of the hotel and the surrounding area. We enjoyed looking at the black and white photos on display around the hotel showing how it used to look and also at the bright attractive paintings in some of the corridors of scenes of old Sheffield.

We had afternoon tea, which was excellent, and breakfast which was buffet-style and very good.

We will definitely make this our hotel of choice whenever we visit Sheffield.

Stayed for one night only with a KGB deal, upgrading to executive room which was excellent, loads of space, extremely large, comfortable bed and everything else you would expect from an upgrade. Our grandson, who is at university in Sheffield, was able to join us for dinner in the Cunningham restaurant and we all spent a most pleasant evening with good food & friendly service in a relaxing atmosphere. The 10/15 minute walk, mostly via ramps from the train station was no problem. We would not hesitate to stay again; due to the age of the building would always take room upgrade though, as I feel some of the rooms may not be of the same standard that we experienced. Breakfast was excellent & all the staff we encountered were friendly & helpful.

Room Tip: Upgrade to get a good sized room. 308 is brilliant and no creaky floorboards above !

location - 10 mins walk from station. good location for city centre if driving.

gym and leisure facilities - free gym and sauna - no pool.

breakfast - good if included.

restaurant - did not use.

bar menu - usual holiday inn menu - burgers etc.

rooms - large, tea/coffee etc, tv with plenty channels, good view if on corner rooms.

overall - good location - i would stay here if staying for 1 day. its a bit old and if you are looking for a modern hotel then you would be better at holiday inn express.
