Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by George8965 Very good hotel
Always helpful, very nice staff. Room is good and spacious too, modern, very clean, air conditioning and all :). Dinner seems to be very good quality, too. Tried the curry last week was very nice, this week had hamburger and lasagne both good.
The only downside is breakfast: only sausage, scrambled egg and beans (I only mean cooked english breakfast. There are, of course, the usual cold stuff (fruits) and rabbit food (cereals) and pastries but I don't eat those). I really miss the bacon and the fried egg, though. Maybe even tomato and hash brown would be nice :). The other thing is the internet, I like to watch things on the internet instead of telly and it takes ages sometimes (I prefer cable connection, but most of these places now only have wifi :S, shame it's not an option), but to be fair, for general internet usage it's not bad at all. In fact, I have been in other Holiday Inn where it kept stopping each night, this is my second week here and so far didn't even have to call reception to reset the router :).

I notified the hotel during my booking process that I was going to be late, approximately 10.00pm, but arrived at 9.35. I asked if the resturant was still open, but was informed they had just closed 9.30pm, I asked what time the pub just across thew road was serving food until and was informed 10.30. I chequed in, quickly dropped my bag off in my room and walked to the pub only to be informed they had stopped serving food at 10.00pm, it was only 10.05pm! I returned to the hotel to have a quick pint, but was then told they didn't have draught, I thought it's not my day.
The next evening when I returned from work, all the power went off in my room and only my room! I reported the incident and the hotel staff did offer me another room, but thought no I'm sure it will be back on and I'm away tomorrow from my nightmare stay. The power did eventually come back on at approximately 11.30pm, I was so glad to leave Rotherham. No I won't be returning, not much around the area, recently built up area.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by MFM1 Not for me
The room and facilities were as expected at a HIE. Lots of car parking and rooms a good size and free WiFi. The downside for me was that the windows do not open, so reliant on air conditioning which I do not like to sleep in. The hotel information was not clear on this. I would not have booked had I known so, on that basis, I won`t be staying again.

Hotel fine, but meal was poor, very bland for a curry especially for the NE of England.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by BigDmec Overall day at the Holiday Inn
My experience started on a downer due to the bar not selling John Smiths bitter, Guinness or Newcastle Brown Ale, however the staff were nice, pleasant and always happy to help.
Then came the time to retire to our room, WHAT A FANTASTIC ROOM. -- Clean, very well decoratedand very comfortable.
Our overall experience was of total satisfaction.
To ALL of the staff a big Thankyou from my wife and I

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Edgar815 Good location and great value
The hotel was clean and modern. The staff were welcoming and efficient and managed the extra demands of a wedding, so that it did not impact too much on other guests. We enjoyed a pleasant walk around the reservoirs nearby, and a trip to Conisborough Castle.
We appreciated the room being ready for us, including our children, but a double duvet would be better on the sofa bed.
The complimentary breakfast was very welcome and included a wide choice.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Baz1955 Great little hotel
Having stayed at many Holiday Inn's I can say that this is one of the best.
Loads of parking an without doubt the best breakfast in a HI express i have ever had, compliments to the chef who kept everything fresh and well topped up.
Local pub 50 yards away also with good evening food

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by warwick122 Better than usual HiExpress
This hotel still bears the traces of its former life as a Park Inn and consequently has bigger beds and rooms than the normal HiExpress. It is however considerably cheaper than the Park Inn ever was. Spacious bar and large enough breakfast area were good but only one lift still working (has it ever worked?). Nearby Aldi and Marston's pub very useful.
Three small quibbles: marking on entrance to car parking needs to be cleared to stop two cars blocking both entrance lanes (or use further entrance point#, and toaster needs to have bread put through twice to change colour, and lastly, need small plates and knives for toast/croissants, butter and jam as only large #cold) plates and no spare knives supplied.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by CrispyStu Clean, uncomplicated, efficient.
Spent two nights Saturday and Sunday with very little time at the hotel other than sleeping and breakfast. Everything was very straightforward and exactly as described. The hotel is fairly new (I stayed in April 2013) and benefits from everything appearing clean and not run down or in need of a lick of paint. Overall very good value.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by 5454 Food
Staff here are great, the food however is so bad I would not recommend anyone to eat here. I have been served a burger only 25% cooked when I took a bite blood ran out, I have had a bacon stake which was raw in the middle and fried eggs which were not fit for consumption, given the price I expect my food to at least be cooked.

Return to the hotel, first time since for several weeks and time for HIE to stamp their mark on the hotel.
As per previous visits, checking in was flawless and rooms are very good. However, I am surprised that the beer is more expensive than London HI's at nearly £4 a pint!!!! And when the resturant is busy the bar service does seem to suffer!!
Overall a nice stay.

Checking in and out is a shambles and no-one really knew what they were doing. It took my Spanish colleague 30 mins to check out and me a good 10-15 mins at check in check out.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by aladawnwilk spotlessly clean and good value.
Ideally situated for us with relatives close at hand and in Barnsley, this hotel forms a valuable addition to the Holiday Inn Express chain. The rooms are well equipped and spotlessly clean and the restaurant alongside was very convenient.. Overall, the hotel represented good value. We would not hesitate in using it again.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by LinH Good hotel, spoiled by TV in dining room
I have stayed at this hotel a number of times since it opened, when I've been in the area on business. Until recently it was The Park Inn. It is a comfortable, modern hotel with large bedrooms and good food, offering good value for money. Nothing much has changed in that respect, though the menu may be a bit more limited. My real complaint on this occasion, however, is that I walked into the dining room with a book to read during my meal, but was overwhelmed by the volume of the huge TV screen on the wall covering a live football match. There was no escaping it. All the other occupants in the dining room were men (and quite a few of those weren't really watching the match). I considered asking for the volume to be turned down, but thought that might make me very unpopular amongst those who were watching it. As a women travelling on my own, I felt it was very unwelcoming, and sent out a clear message that the hotel was geared up for male guests. I know some women like football, but it's mainly a male interest. It was quite unnecessary, as the match could easily have been shown in the lounge area. It has made me consider staying elsewhere next time I go up to Rotherham, to somewhere which shows more consideration for all their guests, not just the men.

Copy of tripadvisor review:
Stayed here a couple of days after the hotel converted from Park Inn to HI express. The hotel is large and spacious and the room was the same. We used the pub across the road which was also nice and there are a few rail stations near by to get you into Sheffield easily - or you can drive. I found the hotel staff friendly and helpful and the breakfast was good, a little better quality than I've had in others of this brand. I'd stay again at the right price.
