The hotel is what you would expect from a Holiday Inn Express, in that it is clean and well presented.

I was up for business and found the hotel easily from the motorway. The most confussing thing is the parking. The signage on the car park does not indicate that if you are paying in the hotel you do not need to pay and display.

The hotel room was very comfortable and up to the standards I would expect.

The biggest let down in the hotel is the breakfast. Whilst I understand it is to a set formula within the group, it was not up to the quality I would have expected in that food such as scrambled eggs were indeible

Dear Guest,

Many thanks for your good comments regarding your stay with us.

You are correct in saying that there is a set formula for the breakfast, however I am sorry that you did not feel the quality was as expected and it is something that we are continuously working on to improve for our guests.

We appreciate you comments and hope that this does not deter you from staying at the hotel again any time soon.

Many thanks

Stayed for one night with my daughter. We wanted to be near Ponds Forge swimming pool so it was well located for us. Reception staff were very friendly and helpful, the bar and restaurant area were of a very good standard. Our twin room was spacious and spotless and the bathroom was gleaming! Breakfast was very good; as advertised the only hot food was beans. scrambled eggs and sauasages, however there was a good selection of fruit and pastries, fruit juice, toast and jam, yogurts and hot beverages, You would not go hungry. I was very pleased with the hotel and would certainly stay in a Holiday Inn Express again. A previous contributor mentioned car parking charges. Don't get a ticket from the machine, park up and reception will add the £5 fee for 24 hours to your room bill. Also, if the carpark is full they do not mind where you park so long as its not a disabled bay (unless you need one) or are blocking anyone else in.

We stayed at this hotel for two nights because we had to be in the city centre and were told that this hotel was "walking distance". If you like to walk, maybe. My idea of walking distance is not a 20 minute walk.

On arrival, we asked the clerk at the desk for directions, after informing her that this was our first time to Sheffield. Let's just say that we ended up calling a taxi, and got much better help and directions on places to visit from him.

The hotel itself was nice, breakfast was great, rooms were clean and comfortable.

Dear Jamila,

Many thanks for your kind comments on how nice the hotel was.

I am sorry that you found the receptionists directions unhelpful, we do provide maps as well to get to the city centre and are happy to call taxis for guests wanting to reach the centre too. The heart of the city centre is 5 minutes away from the hotel so it is correct to be noted as a city centre hotel. I would urge you to come to the hotel again during your next stay in Sheffield, where we can provide you with a detailed and comprehensive map of how to reach the heart of the city.

I hope to see you again soon at the hotel

Many thanks

I was a little disappointed this time. I have stayed here before and was very satisfied but not this time. The beds were uncomfortable, especially the sofa bed. We stayed two nights and I had to request another duvet to put on the sofa bed under the sheet to soften the springs. The breakfast was adequate to say its free but the scrambled egg looked disgusting. The entire staff were lovely very helpful and always polite. Housekeeping were very good and the room was spotless. The shower in the bathroom leaked and so you couldn't get a proper jet it was only half power. The bathroom itself was very nice. The decor in the room was a little shabby but all very clean.

Dear Guests,

I am very upset that this time you did not feel that the hotel was up to standard. The hotel has just reached its 2 year anniversary so for you to make a comment that the room was shabby does surprise me. We do constantly continue to refresh the paint on the guest walls etc., however we will look more closely into this after your comment and this will also be the case with the shower.

With regards to the egg, it is a shame that you did not try the egg as you may have found that although it did not look pleasing to the eye, it tastes great!

Thanks for your feedback, we appreciate you giving us an opportunity to improve our service offering for our guests.

Many thanks

Looking for a place to stay on a spur of the moment bank holiday trip to chatsworth house isnt easy, however this hotel was availble at a decent price so i booked.
Its not really city centre though, not far but far enough to not bother sampling sheffields night life. The hotel bar was fine though and although busy the staff were very friendly and helpful.
The room was very nice. Bigger than expected. Very clean and bright and the bed was very comfy. I slept well apart from being woken at 4am by a group of loud drunken girls coming back after a night out, im guessing this is a popular hen do spot?
The breakfast was a nice touch. Pretty basic but nice to have included in the price, its bit of a squeeze to get round the buffet when busy.
The hotel has its own parking which was full when we arrived apart from the possibly over generous disabled parking allotment. There is an ncp carpark next door, which looks a bit rough but only costs £2.50 for 24 hours and is locked up at 8:pm till the morning.
Overall a nice hotel. Ive stayed in holiday inns before so know the standard and this is no exception.

Dear Guest,

Thank you for your feedback on the hotel.

I am very sorry that you were woken by a group of girls arriving back from the centre. With us being a city centre hotel, we do occasionally get hen groups in the hotel, however they are managed well by our night staff when the return from the centre to ensure that these guests to not disturb the rest of the guests in the hotel.

Many thanks again for the feedback and please do think about us again the next time you visit Sheffield

I have stayed here a few times now and have never been disappointed by it. With a complimentary all you can eat buffet breakfast and excellent service, the hotel is faultless. The rooms are very spacious and clean with excellent views of the city. For the price as well, I could never fault any of the numerous visits I have made here
