Well, What can I say about The Don Valley Hotel??? After reading all the other reviews about this place i had no doubt that our stay would be very comfortable.
However, we had a very different experience.... Our room was ok. Small, Clean and a nice comfy bed but a double it was not. We had a 4 foot bed, a bathroom that was so cramped that even a contortionist would have struggled to use it. We had tea making facilities but nothing to drink the tea/coffee from.
Despite turning up at 11:30am our daughters room was not ready until gone 2pm.

As if this wasn't enough, The hotel bar promised to be closed by 2am, which was fine with us as we went for an evening out. We got home at 1;30am ready for a good sleep after a very long day but our hotelier had very different ideas!! It was gone 4:30am before the thumping of the juke box was shut off and that was only because i complained!! Then the hotelier and his cronies decided to take the party into the beer garden where the continued to laugh and joke at full volume till almost 6am!!

I managed to get some sleep at this point but my poor partner, our designated driver was then woken by the staff change over at 7:30am!! with only 2 hours sleep we had a 4 hour drive back home this morning which was very stressful.

I would not recommend staying at this hotel and will definitely not be returning any time soon, The only saving grace was that we did get a refund on our room but only after i asked for it.

Room Tip: Room 2 is tiny and certainly not a double!!

This is a strange place. The rooms are spoltless with comfy beds and en-suite. The location is right next to Don Valley stadium but apart from that theres not much. The bar downstairs is an experience. Didn't try the food so can't comment. For the price of £35 I can't complain to much. Well worth it......

We booked for the proximity to the Motorpoint Arena as we were in Sheffield to see Biffy Clyro that night. We were shown to our rooms quickly despite the bar being busy. Good size, clean rooms, ensuite- what more do you need for a night. Down to the bar for a drink and off to the gig. The pub was lively on our return, with karaoke and disco but we were well up for it. Had a cracking night and would certainly use the hotel again if in Sheffield. May be too lively/ noisy for some but it was a Saturday night and we thoroughly enjoyed it. We were made very welcome by the locals and it certainly enhanced the experience. Love to Bruce the pub dog, little cutie

A very accommodating hotel that helped us with any problems we had. The staff were extremely friendly and helped with any problems we needed such as an early breakfast or even breakfast at 2pm. The room were very clean and we were given new towels everyday. Free tea and coffee facilities in the room and free wi fi throughout the Hotel. The Hotel is also in a good location for the EIS and only a 5 minute taxi journey into the centre of Sheffield. Overall, my stay at the Don Valley was fantastic and I would recommend this place to anyone who wants a great stay in Sheffield.

All the staff were unbelievably friendly and helpful, and very tolerant of our loud and rowdy group - we spilled some wine on the floor of our room and they didn't even charge us to clean it. The rooms were clean and airy, and well heated. The food in the Deli next door was amazing (especially the full English!) and they even opened it up for our group as we had to leave early.

A really great stay: lovely rooms with great quality furnishings and very nice en-suites. The staff were incredibly helpful and made every effort to make our stay as comfortable as possible. Lovely location too: places to eat close-by and a very short drive right to the centre of Sheffield.
Top notch! Would definitely go again.
