Reviewed March 4, 2013 via mobile

We stayed at this hotel for one night. I had never stayed in a Holiday Inn Express before and I have to say I am extremely impressed. We were greeted at the desk with a friendly welcome and we were checked in quickly.

First impressions of the room were very good (twin room)
It was very spacious, with a desk and arm chair also. The bathroom was immaculate, very clean, modern and the shower was awesome, huge in fact!

Jackie on the front desk was very helpful with our enquiries and the hotel is located perfectly for Sheffield City Centre.

We couldn't fault the breakfast in the morning. There was something for everyone, from fruit to a cooked breakfast to pastries.

Overall I would 100% stay at the hotel and would recommend anybody who was looking to stay at it.

we stayed on a Thursday night in an upgraded corner room, very spacious with double aspect windows overlooking the river and car park. The hotel is quite new and the design is modern. However, design should be fit for purpose and some of the designs are just wrong. The toilet seat does not stay up because the vanity unit is trendy and too close. The shower is huge and a smaller shower would allow a different design. The sink is a trendy stand alone bowl but set too high for my 5' 2" wife. There is a lovely designed coat hook that may hold a dressing gown but not a towel. For the size of the room the bathroom could be bigger. The other issue is the bed was very hard, we both had sore hips and shoulders the next day.

The staff were all excellent and the free buffet breakfast better than expected. Overnight 24 hr parking at £5 is reasonable. With the Hilton and Holiday Inn all in the same area there is a choice but I suppose the value you receive is a big factor. Personally I would prefer to pay more for a better nights sleep.The location is 5 minutes walk to the city centre.

Firstly, many thanks for your kind feedback on our breakfast offerings and reasonable car parking options.

I am sorry to hear that the layout of the room did not suit your needs. With regards to the toilet seat and the coat hook, I am positive that these matters can be easily resolved by our maintenance team on site so thank you for bringing these issues to our attention.

The mattresses are new with the property so depending on preference, guest may find them harder than preferred, however we do offer extra duvets, bedding and any additional help to improve guests comfort at any point in their stay, so please do bare this in mind during your next stay in Sheffield.

I do hope to see you again soon at either our property or the sister hotel of the Holiday Inn Royal Victoria.

What a great little hotel, pretty much brand new, so all very modern, spacious rooms with comfortable beds. The showers are great, very roomy and powerful. The blue night light in the bathroom is a nice touch.

The free breakfast is spot on, good food. Close to the city centre, 5min walk. I've stayed in the more expensive Holiday Inn across the road, which I think is a bit dated, so would alway choose the express version from now on.

Only criticism would be that the car park gets pretty full quickly, I'd imagine this is only on a Saturday evening

Thank you for you kind reveiw, you are correct regarding the car park it only tends to get busy on Saturdays, however we do share the sister hotels car park which has over 240 car parking spaces, so we find this more than managable for the busy Saturdays.

We hope to see you again soon

Good location, just a few minutes walk from the centre (25 minute walk from the University).
Very clean, modern room and bathroom. Buffet breakfast could have been better if fried eggs and bacon on offer as well as the scrambled egg and sausages.

Many thanks for your great feedback

Our free breakfast we offer all of our guests is a continental breakfast and we are governed to provide only 3 hot options of sausage, scrambled eggs and beans, however we do have a sister hotel called the Holiday Inn Royal Victoria who do offer full English breakfasts for an additional cost of £12.50, so this maybe a possible option for your next stay in Sheffield to either upgrade to the hotel for your full stay or even upgrade to just have breakfast at this hotel.

If you require any further information then please do not hesitate to contact the hotel

Many thanks

I stayed here for three nights a fortnight ago and was so impressed I'm here again now for another three nights. (26th, 27th and 28th Feb).

The welcome on arrival is warm, friendly and nothing seems too much. The staff can't seem to do enough! Great facilities on the ground floor! Evening meals of good quality! Breakfast the usual HI fare but perfectly adequate. Oh and the ice machine is a nice touch.

First stay was on the 1st floor (1111) and this stay on the 6th (1607). It does seem quieter at night the higher up you are.

The rooms are identical, really big, very clean, massive double power shower and all the facilities you could wish for. I really can't fault it! Oh and a really nice touch are the power sockets next to the bed, a feature often not found in other chains.

If I could have one wish it would be to be able to transfer my Best Western loyalty points over to Priority Club points as I've really no intention of leaving HI for business trips.

Next week I'm in the HI Express in Victoria London. Fingers crossed its half as decent as Sheffield City Centre! Thanks guys!

Stayed on a Saturday night and hotel was probably full. No problem finding hotel or parking. Friendly reception staff. Modern hotel. Very comfortable room on top (7th?) floor - bigger than some HiE rooms I have stayed in. Quiet location but only 5 min walk to City Centre and tram stop. Usual HiE breakfast, perfectly adequate, included in room price. Quite busy but friendly staff cleared tables and "topped up" regularly. Enjoyable stay.
Recommended and would/will stay again.
