Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Rich844 Very comfortable historic hotel. Great breakfast
My wife and I have stayed at this hotel a number of times over the years, enjoying it's historic character, comfort and service. The rooms are spacious, well equipped and clean and the two double bedded rooms particularly suitable for a family. The superb buffet breakfast is hard to beat with excellent service. My only slight gripe is having to pay as a resident to use the spacious hotel car park, but other than that, I would recommend this hotel without question.

Our family room was fine, comfortable and the overall hotel service more than adequate. I would stay there again any time. Only problem was that our satnav failed to find the hotel! In the end, we just used a map and at least we know where it is now.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by EPMzzzz Very friendly welcome, relaxing stay and great breakfast
Staying at this excellent hotel every week for work makes being away from home much more bearable.
Great staff, friendly smiling faces and all have good humour.
Very comfortable rooms all round, the little extras, such as bottle of water and flapjack bar, are a nice touch.
Breakfast is always well prepared and served on time.
Many thanks again and well done to the whole team at HI Royal Victoria.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Ap9999 Outdated rooms
Good location for city centre, great shower ... But overall the room and general hotel is tired and needs updating. Beds were sagging in the middle and noisy, when I moved the bed away from the wall slightly the headboard fell off the wall!!!
The tv was good but only picked up around 50% of the normal channels.
Would I stay here again,,,, no.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Shilton Beds were really hard and uncomfortable
This hotel was great, staff were welcoming , good food , and really nice atmosphere , only problems had were that the bed was uncomfortable and hard and also the shower head was broken and sprayed everywhere , also at breakfast the buffet was not stocked up on the hot food very well, no sausage , bacon or mushrooms available and had to wait for these.
But i would recommend if these problems were ironed out

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Nomads A taste of the Victorian era
Easy access to the centre of Sheffield, this old Victorian Railway hotel is comfortable and the staff friendly and helpful.
As you would expect the Holiday Inn breakfast was great value when pre booked with the room.
The pictures of the hotel history around the wall added to the interest of the hotel.

The hotel is full of character and staffed by friendly and welcoming staff. Herman and the team go out of there way to make sure everyone has a pleasant stay.
All rooms are large and comfortable with a gym and sauna is in the basement to let you work of excesses of the night before.
Located under 5 minutes outside Sheffield town centre or turn left at the bottom of the ramp and follow the Kelham Island Ale trail.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by skippycaptain Nice staff and great breakfast
Stayed for 2 nights. First night spoiled by 'revellers' outside. Had to ask front desk to resolve which was eventually done. Windows not double glazed and don't shut completely in annex so noise
Food good, bar good, rooms very good size with comfortable beds.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Zoola Short Stay
We stayed only one night but the reception staff (tracey) was helpful and polite. She offered us an upgrade as Gold Elite members but after taking her advice (wedding parties) we declined. However the room in the new extension was very comfortable and clean with all the mod cons.
The Hotel is in a reclaimed cul-de -sac (old railway siding) and very separate from the City Cent-re but only a 400yd walk away from it, really good for access.
All in all one of the better Holiday Inns which we would gladly use again.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by kitchener Room 246 noisy
Arrived late to this hotel with my wife for family business. Unfortunately our room was very noisy overlooking a busy dual carriageway road from an old sash window which wouldn't close properly. After a very busy day we found it difficult to sleep. We would have asked to move to another room but for the lateness of the hour.
However the hotel is centrally located so would suit visitors to Sheffield. That side of the hotel needs double glazing.
Free wi-fi please to differentiate from Holiday Inn Express.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by TrebleJ59 Restaurant
I'm a regular stayer at a number of IHG group hotels and I think that the food at this hotel is an example to all others as to what can be done with fresh local ingredients. I had beetroot & bacon soup as starter and the fresh properly cooked veg with my steak was a refreshing change from limp salad and frozen chips that are predominant in other hotels in the group. When work leads to nights away little comforts make it bearable. Well done to the chef!!!

Easy access, not far from city, though immediate surroundings to hotel are not exactly the highlights of Sheffield, suggest a cab back if returning late!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by gemym the beds were very comfy and brill pillows
I found the rooms to warm it was lacking air conditioning ,all we had was a fan wich was not very effective I was glad we had only 1 night as we would have moved if our stay had been longer, I would always check in future if your hotels has air conditioning before I book.

We stayed at the Royal Victoria for 2 nights with our young grandaughter whilst visting family and friends in the area. It is a supurb hotel, full of character and wonderful decor which enhance many of its original features. We had an interconnecting room with large and very comfortable beds. Excellent breakfast and our stay was made perfect by the very friendly and attentive staff.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Sermatt An oasis in the Sheffield heat
Three very good nights at the Victoria Holiday Inn. The size of room made relation easy. Plenty of storage to keep it clutter free. In the unexpected heat, the room remained cool and the beds were comfortable so sleep was no problem. Provision of a fan and delightfully chilled water was that special touch. With splendid service in a delightfully charming building - how hotels were and still should be - it is enticing me back laready

I had always wanted to stay here a we visit Sheffield a lot
We were here for our sons graduation and managed to book in advance and get a good deal
The hotel did not dissapoint. A lovely old Railway Hotel converted into a modern hotel
The staff and service was excellent
The room was very good but unfortunately it was one of the hottest days this year and the lack of air conditioning was noticeable
There was a fan which helped a bit but I would have expected AC in this quality of hotel

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by MissyHKJ Lovely Hotel but very hot
The Hotel is stunning especially the public area's, but being an old building there is no air conditioning.
We were there on possibly the hottest weekend we have seen in years and the room was stifling.
Although fans were provided, this made little difference and was made worse by not being able to open the windows.
To add to our problem, the fridge was not working, so was unable to keep water chilled, but the reception, kindly kept our drinks cool in the kitchen fridge and provided ice buckets each time we took a cold bottle up to the room. There was also cold water provided by the hotel in the reception area which was a nice touch considering the temperature.
The staff were very friendly and answered all our questions, and also asked us if we enjoyed our concert that we had been taking part in on the Saturday evening.
Overall, the experience was brilliant, it was just the temperature that let it down which the staff did everything they possibly could to make the stay as comfortable as possible.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ChrisWB Historic hotel sensitively modernised
I hadn't appreciated when I booked it but this hotel is a former Great Central Railway Hotel which has been converted into a very comfortable and prestigious Holiday Inn. The interior oozes history yet the standards and service are fully 21st century. I think this is possibly my favourite Holiday Inn and I have stayed in many over the years, either for business or pleasure. Its position is also convenient for the city centre and the railway station but it should not be confused with the adjacent Holiday Inn Express (which I'm sure has equally high standards perhaps without the history). I would not hesitate to stay here again.

We splashed out a bit on a suite of rooms. I was concerned it might be a disaster. It was brilliant. We loved it. I had flowers delivered and needed ice buckets in the room (Birthday) spoke to staff on the phone and via email beforehand and they sorted it all out so it was perfect when we got there. Our stay was genuinely fantastic for us.
