Holiday Inn Sheffield

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Grand entrance and corridors. Good parking. Bathroom fine but bedroom was cramped. Full of dark furniture. 2 desks in a small room? Carpet was not particularly clean. Heavy drapes at the window which shout dust. Altho these and furniture were prob trying to fit in with era of hotel it just didn't feel clean. Room service only £2.50 but cheese board had seen better days. Finally the noise of traffic to be expected (why no double glazing) but also noise from a nearby rave, guests jumping around upstairs and a mini party (or so it seemed) outside main entrance in the early hours meant little sleep. Avoided breakfast so can.t comment on food went to nearby cafe on victoria quays -excellent full English including tea and toast for £4.

We discovered that Great Britain's hotels can't be counted on to provide comfortable beds and pillows. Happily, the Holiday Inn Sheffield's beds were so comfortable that we actually slept through our alarms. We also tried their room service and had delicious hot food delivered quickly. All around a great experience.

Stayed for one night on Sunday and had requested in advance a quiet room as we hoped for a good night sleep prior to our son's graduation. We were allocated room 250 which was adequately fitted out although the wardrobe was too narrow to take a standard size coat hanger. Also although the booking was for three adults there were only towels for two people and no mug for the third person either. The room overlooked the dual carriageway and the noise from the traffic disturbed our sleep and meant we were awake much sooner than we needed to be - this was despite requesting a quiet room on the booking (we know there are quieter rooms as we have stayed previously). Breakfast offered a good selection although lacked any bread rolls.

Really lovely hotel- comfy beds- great breakfast- near to Sheffield City Centre and a short drive to Meadowhall. Our room was a family room and it was very large with two king size beds. Breakfast was self serve and there was lots of choice. The only downside is that you have to pay for parking which is a £5 charge. I recommend staying here.

Stayed here as it was part of a package with the Hard Rock Hell gig weekend at the O2 in Sheffield. Lovely place with a relaxed atmosphere. Room nice and plenty of room, no view but ok and not noisy. Staff very helpful. I found the breakfast not that great on this occasion. Have booked again for next year.

Stayed here for work for two nights. The first night was fine. Staff lovely, good sized room and bathroom. Quiet. The second night I arrived back to a school prom. The noise in the room drowned out the tv and the bathroom was vibrating. At 10.15pm rang down to reception to ask when the noise would stop (midnight) only to be told there was nothing they could do as they were fully booked. Obviously aware of the problem. Asked for recompense via email and no response.

I stayed at the Holiday Inn Sheffield for one night on a business trip with a colleague. We both checked in at the same time having booked two "executive rooms". My colleague was given a room on the second floor and I had one on the first floor. When I got into my room the first thing to hit me was the heat, it was stiflingly hot and I couldn't open the windows more than a crack. The room was fairly large but shabby and dated, however the bathroom was lovely with twin sinks and a large bath. My colleague's room was very modern, looked recently refurbished, with an amazing bathroom and large bath. It also had a huge wall mounted tv. The two rooms could not be compared. I went down to reception to ask to be moved as my room was to hot (by this point it was making me feel quite sick). I asked the receptionist if she could possibly move me to the same floor as my colleague and she said "well it will be hotter up there". I responded by letting her know that my colleagues room was not as hot as my room, however I felt her attitude was poor, and she was quite rude. She did move me to a room on the second floor but it wasn't an "executive room" and it was nowhere near as nice as my colleagues. It was, however, cooler. We tried the restaurant for dinner in the evening. I believe it was called"Cunningham's". It was awful. My colleague had Halloumi skewers which were over cooked, rubbery, poorly presented and cold; I had Chicken parmigiana - the chicken was obviously reheated and tough, the tomato sauce bitter with a burnt taste and came with boiled potatoes not the sautéed as in the menu. When we left the restaurant my colleague was phoned in her room to say we had left without paying, despite both of us leaving a card on our rooms when we checked in, and providing our room number at the restaurant. They did advise that they would not charge for my colleagues meal because she had complained. Breakfast was average at best. I do a lot of travelling for work, and will avoid this hotel in future. All in all it was an unpleasant experience. The huge variation in the standard of rooms that are supposed to be the same grade is astonishing. What is also worrying is that the receptionist who was quite rude, when I asked to be moved due to the heat, was training someone at the time. I do hope that making the guest feel like an inconvenience is not part of the training!

Pretty much what you'd expect from a Holiday Inn. Clean, modern with good facilities. The room was nice, clean comfortable and quiet. The girl who checked us in was friendly and helpful when we asked for directions. We bought a drink at the bar on the evening and found the guy that served us very rude! He completely ignored us apart from asking for money. I was not impressed at all, considering we were giving him custom. We had breakfast on the morning and it was good. There was a good choice and you can eat as much as you like. The hotel is right next to an NCP car park and has parking of it's own which is handy. It's also 5 minutes from a tram stop so well placed in the city centre. We were going to the arena and it took us about 20 minutes in total. A good all round hotel, well placed and good value for money. Would recommend.

Me, my friends and my 2 year old daughter spent one night at this beautiful hotel. It was merely a "stop over" as we travelled between places. It really was an excellent choice however. Combining incredible value with the class and character of a beautiful listed building. The room was spacious, clean, and comfortable. We had tea and coffee making facilities and some toiletries were provided. We hadn't booked breakfast for the following morning though, because our train was not until 11:30-ish and we didn't need to be out of the room until 12 noon anyway, we decided to order breakfast to the room. A quick phone call, giving the restaurant a vague idea of wanting various continental style items, with fruit and cereal, and about 15 minutes later 2 lovely room service staff arrived with 2 trays filled with pasties, cheese, cold meats, fresh coffee, fresh fruit.....It felt like a Mother's day morning! It was fantastic. All the staff that looked after us were courteous, well mannered, and helpful. If you want a great value hotel in Sheffield, with added class and the character of a stately home. Choose this hotel. I highly recommend it.

I selected this hotel based on the sauna - it's something I like to enjoy after days work if possible. I did think there would have been pool too but apparently it's different Holiday Inn which is easy to mistake for this one - other reviewers have had same problem. Unfortunately sauna was in terrible condition and I couldn't even figure out how to switch it on - there's no button that says "Control Time" as they have in the instructions. Pictures tell more than words can definitely in this case. Front desk staff were quite useless when I asked them if they could do something about this. I might give it another try tomorrow but will definitely use double towels so that I don't get any nasty diseases to bring back home. I'm going to visit Sheffield a lot in next 3-4 months but I don't think I'll ever return to this hotel.
