Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Holbee Nice hotel - bad coffee!!
Stayed at this hotel for an engagement party for friends. Good event, reasonable prices at the bar and the room was very comfortable. The staff were very helpful, and friendly.
My only criticism is that the coffee is absolutely horrific; in the room and in the restaurant. Hotel coffee is always questionable, but this tasted like it had been laced with cyanide!
Having said this, the restaurant was very comfortable, the breakfast selection is good and the staff attentive.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Whistleblower Very comfortable & welcoming
Have stayed here often & rooms appear to have been improved. Excellently located close to the M1. Breakfast good; usual HI fayre. Says there is a parking charge of £3 but this wasn't levied - not sure if this still applicable but haven't been charged it on last three visits here. Nice staff & made to feel very welcome as a Gold Elite member.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Rcrca Big room, good beds and nice service.
We enjoyed our stay at Holiday Inn, with big room and nice accommodations. The pool area is good, but because it's for the public also, it's not as relaxing as you can think. As a guest you want to be able to use the facilities without too many people. Swimming schools is better to have in public bath houses, I feel anyway.
Otherwise nothing to complain about.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by WilksGTFC Excellent family stay
I dont write reviews, as I usually vote with my feet.
I stay at Hol Inn's accross the country on business & I return to the good ones - Newcastle & Milton Keynes East
We stayed here as a family, with 2 young children visiting relatives in the area.
Our family executive room was spacious & the kids loved it.
Staff very friendly.
Sauna & Pool also enjoyed
Will stay again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bridgid comfortable bed and room, great service
I booked a room for 2 nights over Christmas. The Reception staff were friendly and efficient. I found the room was a good size and had everything I needed from hair dryer to suitcase stand. The TV offered most Freeview channels. I couldn't operate the TV at first but help was sent very quickly which I was happy about. I was pleased to find that the mattress was firm but not made of memory foam which makes me too hot. I was a little cold on the first night ( it was a freezing night outside) but fared better on the 2nd night when I left the heating on low. I was not disturbed by noise from anywhere. I didn't eat at the hotel or sample the other facilities as I was visiting relatives for Christmas. I will stay here again as it is comfortable and well located.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Doug & Jenny Room Temperature a problem.
Very impressed with the hotel refurbishment, newly decorated room , new fittings and a really comfortable bed. The staff were great and the breakfast very good. However please sort out your heating, arriving back late on Christmas night to a cold room only to find that the air conditioning only emitted cold air and the convector heater had a mind of its own, only worked intermittently and no heating in the bathroom we too soon became very cold. not very good!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by lmaws Wonderful time for all
Room was amazing, with 2 large double beds and a pull out sofa bed, everything was spotless, and the cleaners had done a great job. Bathroom did let it down a little with peeling paint, but as the room got very steamy with the shower and a very quick to full bath; I can understand it takes a lot to keep on top of that.
Staff, well couldn't fault anyone, nothing was too much trouble from the minute we arrived to leaving.
If I have to say anything negative it would be around the breakfast, although there was a great selection of choices from toast and fruit to a full cooked breakfast, the quality of the bacon was not the best, it was very fatty and not a lot of meat, and the scrambled eggs, swimming in liquid was not very appetizing.
I would give this hotel a bog 4.5 out of 5 for a wonderful stay

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Bracken1 Very nice room and great shower
Extremely noisy mainly from adjacent room and other guests running up and down the corridor. I got very little sleep and decided to leave the hotel at 06:30. There was know one on desk to lodge a complaint.
Very disappointed and a total waste of money, would definitely choose another hotel when next in the Sheffield area.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Roger1951 Will stay again
Stopped for one night with our two grandchildren.
Great reception and recognition of our IHG rewards club status.
We were given an upgrade and a free drink.
There was a large Christmas party occupying the restaurant which was closed. ( we were informed of this before booking) so we had an adequate room service meal, which, given the fact the hotel was extremely busy, arrived in good time.
The two kingsize beds were really comfortable and although we were on the ground floor near the car park and a main road we all slept soundly. So much so we missed breakfast the next morning!
Will stay again if in the area.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by IMB1 Great staff but tired hotel
The staff are very friendly and efficient but the hotel itself is in need of a refit. Everything looks tired and worn. It's clean and no doubt the staff do their best but someone needs to give them some help with the fittings.
The breakfast was less than average which came as a surprise in a Holiday Inn. Not a great choice and not particularly well cooked. Only offering overdone scrambled eggs as part of the buffet is not on! Maybe you can order fried or poached but there wasn't anyone around to ask and maybe it's my fault but I don't normally have enough time in the morning to stand around waiting for things!
It's a good location and easy to get to but it needs a re-vamp of the building, fittings and the breakfast.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Stephen71 Great breakfasts. Comfy rooms.
Stayed two nights, two rooms, family of four on reward points, so only paid for breakfasts.
Upon check in, was told bar was closed so as could not have complimentary drink, was given Reward Point vouchers to redeem. Nice unexpected touch.
Rooms were clean and comfortable. Tea/coffee making facilities. WiFi. Nice lighting options, reading light, etc.
Breakfasts were great. Ordered poached eggs. Buffet included more hot food, cereals, fresh fruit, pastries, juices, a smoothie, toast, etc. etc. Really impressed by the variety on offer, great for the kids. Everyone found things they liked.
Have to make special mention of Kasim, who despite having a full restaurant on Sunday morning, still remembered our tea preference and my eggs order from the day before. Another nice touch.
Recommend and will stay again.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 Ok,, did the job
Hotel was chosen due to its proximity to the office. It was ok and did the job, but it's dated. The bar wasn't busy but all the tables needed clearing and when I went to the bar for a drink I had to wait until a fellow guest went to reception to get the bar man from his chat!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Pompeyowl Saturday night stay.
We did ask for an early arrival for midday and was very pleased that the staff had managed to accommodate this request on arrival.
Staff were very helpful, the room is very clean but the whole property is what I would term "tired".
The heating was non-existent in the room and lack of instructions for the air conditioning in the room.
Also I would expect soap dispensers in a Holiday Express but not in a Holiday Inn.... I expect toiletries.
The attentive staff certainly override the criticism though.
Overall yes I would stay again if the Victoria isn't free in Sheffield.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Jillycan Nice Hotel
The hotel is pretty nice, the staff was very friendly and their service was great. They were very eager to assist in making my stay a great one. The room was a very good size bigger than I anticipated to be honest. Stayed there one night for a family event, the hotel was very conveniently located off the highway.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mike12345654321 Best Holiday Inn Ever !!
I stay in many Holiday Inns and I find this one to have the friendliest staff, lowest prices and best customer care anywhere. The staff really seem to bend over backwards to help you. Cleanliness etc all to a very high standard. I seldom write reviews but feel I owe the staff here recognition. Thanks. Very impressed and look forward to staying here again.

I have to stay up in Sheffield/Rotherham on a regular basis and I keep coming back to the Holiday Inn.
The Rate is reasonable for having a pool and gym.
The Food is Good and the breakfast selection is fantastic
Most Important of all and why I come back is the Staff are so friendly and helpful a real genuine smile and always seem to have time to chat.
Well done all see you soon : )

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Trainee43 Nice room but awful breakfast
We stayed at the Holiday Inn, Rotherham recently. Upon arrival at the hotel the staff were very welcoming. We asked to change rooms because we were allocated a twin room, but had booked a standard double. This wasn't a problem though as the staff changed the room for us within half hour.
We then went to the bar and ordered a meal. This meal was fine (if a little small). The restaurant didn't open until 6.30 pm so the small portions could be because we had a bar snack?
The room was lovely, very clean and very spacious. The bed was extremely comfortable and we both had a relaxing night's sleep.
Breakfast however was very disappointing. The baked beans were watered down, the bacon too hard to get a knife into (felt like eating plastic!) and the food tasted as though it had been left there for quite a while. The food was at best luke warm. The only positive about the breakfast was that you could order fried eggs if you wish. Having said all this, I have to say that the staff were very helpful and courteous.
