I had an engagement in Sheffield and I had time to book ahead. I like Holiday Inn Express and I am a member of its Reward programme, which is very good. Members always receive the best available rate and I was in luck as I booked during a 'sale'. The rate was very good. Holiday Inn Expresses are usually centrally located and this was no exception. Although I did not need it, having arrived by train, this hotel had good nearby parking at £6 a day. It was a very comfortable establishment and in addition to breakfast being supplied, it hada restaurant. I found this quite adequate for one night, but would have found it limiting for longer. Howevefr, there was a Crowne Plaze in the same Group nearby with a more adventourous restauarant which you could use and charge your room. I will return.
