Recent guest reviews

The hotel itself is so clean and pleasant. The staff were so friendly right from check in to check out. We had James on check in and he set our stay off the best way it could have been. The room we had were spacious and had a great light, fun feel to it. Both me and my partner really enjoyed our stay and will be back again in the future.

Having recently stayed at Hoilday Inn Express Sheffield would like to say a huge thankyou to members of staff there, they made us all feel so welcome & went beyound by letting a few members of family decorte one of the rooms for a 21st Birthday (even though a lady complained about the noise, dont stay in a Hotel near City Centre on a Saturday night with kids if u dont want noise)and they were so nice next day asking how the night out, would recommend for the friendly staff members themselfs

The entire experience was a dream, right from check in with Katy through to departure the next morning. Check in was fast efficient and friendly, definitely service with a smile, so many thanks to Katy for that! The room its self was amazing! A massive bed and a lovely corner window which opened the room up to so much light, would love to stay in that room again! The room was both spotless and clean, with everything that you would need. Will be certainly staying again!

Absolutely fine HI express. Nice rooms good shower and relatively new. Slightly out of the town centre but no big deal. Woken up at 8 on a Saturday morning by builders using drills hammers and electric saws next door. Rang down to reception who don't know anything about it and can't do anything. Pretty poor show. Definitely check on building work if you are here in the next few weeks / months.

Very cheap and conveniently placed. Staff lovely but room dark and bed and sofa bed very uncomfortable. Loud clientele at night added to rubbish night sleep. Dirty knickers abandoned outside front of hotel just about summed it up!! Paid for two nights ..... only stayed for one!

I’ve stayed in a few Holiday Inns and this one is on par or maybe even better by looks, however I didn’t have a good stay. I booked through and everything was accepted etc. Upon arrival I was told that they didn’t have the room type I had booked available so had to give me something different - why is it available to book if you aren’t able to offer it? The TV in the room had 3 lines running right down the centre and was unwatchable. The towels were not replaced even after putting them out to be replaced. The window got jammed when we opened it and it took us ages to work out how to get it to shut, so spent the entire evening asleep cold and having to listen to heavy city centre traffic. The only clock in the room was slow, which caused confusion as we didn’t realise and almost missed breakfast! Apart from that, the hotel in itself is nice and the breakfasts are decent (although a vegetarian meat alternative would be great). Overall though, due to the inconvenience and trouble, I wouldn’t return, nor would I recommend.

Nice big room with a great view of the river. Giand comfy bed and excellent cooked breakfast. Easy walk into Sheffield from the hotel. There were even complimentary Easter Eggs! Don't forget to factor in the £6 a day parking charge.

We stayed at the Holiday Inn for 3 nights. It’s in a good location for getting to train station, bus station and the city center. There is a bus stop around the corner. The room was very comfortable with a kettle for making tea. The shower was great. We enjoyed the breakfasts each morning, great coffee. They also offered to go cups and bags for pastries if you were short on time. The staff on the front desk were very helpful and friendly.

When in Sheffield head to Blonk Street. Handy spot and great parking SPACIOUS bedrooms on seventh floor for the IHG demigods. Lobby bar serves real beer. Love Sheffield. They are also helpful with suggestions for local spots. Breakfast ok.

Stayed at this express every time we are in Sheffield. Hotel is very clean and staff are amazing. Showers are powerful, did have a noise issues on this visit due to other guest but staff sorted this , breakfast was a bit of a surprise this time. Yes we have bacon!! ( never know an express to have bacon , only sausage) Lots of choice and tables are clean and washed quickly. Check in and out was quick and staff were very helpful, I did lose a bottle of perfume in the room, slipped down side of bed. house keeping found it and returned it. Hotel is very close to ponds forge which is about a five minute walk across the bridge and close to the centre of Sheffield. Will stay again .
