“I wouldnt pay a fiver to stop in this hotel again!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 13, 2011

First of all the hotel is NOT situated near to the motorpoint arena which is the main reason why me and my partner booked to stay here. I can only descibe this hotel as a YMCA block of flats. The carpet in our room was filthy, the room was cold, the 'ensuite' was like the public tiolets in a supermarket and the towels were dirty. All night all we could here was shouting and banging of doors, which the receptionist didnt do anything about. I will never stay in this hotel ever again. Thats £42 we will never get back.

Room Tip: Dont book any room at all.

Clean, basic, new. Reasonably price. Comfy beds. Very helpful friendly lady in reception who organised a taxi for us. We only needed basic so this hotel was perfect for us.

excellent location for meadowhall and magma
we stopped here for one night and was very impressed, the first thing we noticed was how clean the hotel was, there was no litter on the ground and everything looked well maintained. there was a very friendly lady on reception and check in was a breeze, it is over three floors, the back of the hotel looks over a main road, this road did seem to have a steady stream of traffic, yet you could barely hear it in our room which was facing it. the bathroom had a very big shower, sink, toilet and a heated towel rail, soap and showergel which was a nice touch, the bathroom was very clean although there was a little bit of mildew around the shower tray, the room had air conditioning, but this did seem to come on itself during the night i presume it was set not to go below a certain temperature, but you didnt notice any real noise from this just a slight hum, the bed was comfty and had a proper matress, something i have noticed other hotels dont have. there was also plenty of tea and coffee supplies with biscuits too, the room also had a tv with normal channels on and a few sky channels, and it also had a hair dryer (a good one) which is helpful when you have forgot yours, it is next to a bowling alley and gym but you dont get any noise from here. all in all a good stop.

Heading from the south to Rotherham for a University open day we just needed an inexpensive place to sleep for the night and when booking online did not have high expectiations. On arrival helpful receptionist signed us in quickly and offered free voucher for ten pin bowling next door. Rooms were clean, in very good condition, good TV and shower/bathroom. Great !

We stayed at the Welcome Inn on a Saturday night. Just a short taxi ride from the station, I was initially concerned that there might be noise from outside but didn't hear anything during the night. The receptionist was very friendly and welcoming. The room was really clean and new-looking, with a good supply of tea/coffee, hairdryer, television, shower gel & liquid soap provided, adequate towels (although no bath mat) and comfortable pillows. Slightly more hangers would have been appreciated (6 in total were supplied between 2 people), and the shower was a little slippery to stand in. The air conditioning was very efficient but the temperature appeared to be fixed on 18 degrees so it was either on or off (although we didn't ask if this could be adjusted). Breakfast was brought to the room - continental breakfast with cereal (including a fresh pint of milk), croissants, yoghurt and orange juice, plus we also had bacon sandwiches brought to the room, which were enormous and great value. Overall a very successful stay and excellent value for money, we would definitely stay here again if we were staying in the area - next time we would probably investigate the swimming pool, which we didn't have time to use on this occasion.

We stayed here for a concert at Sheffield Arena which was a present for my partner. I found the hotel details on the Arena's website.

The hotel was disappointing. I don't know how to describe it, but it somehow just did not feel like a hotel. It felt more like an office block but with bedrooms, not offices behind the doors.

The room had a very uncomfy bed, you could feel every spring in the matress. There was a noisy air-con unit on the wall which no matter what you did, you could not turn off. Murrrrrrrrrrr all night long....! We could also hear everytime someone opened the corridor door and walked past.

The room was just so below basic, in fact the whole hotel was. It did not feel special in any such way.

Breakfast is not served at the hotel, you have to go next door. We didn't go, we just left in the morning.

Would i go back? Never
Would i recommend to a friend? No

I just wish i had researched this hotel better before i booked.
