Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Tom08 Difficult to find hotel. Saggy mattress did my back in.
I arrived at this hotel very late after driving an M1 detour and then being unable to find it, only to find the door locked and the male receptionist only willing to speak to me via the locked door. I had to ask if he would please let me in rather than I shout through a glass door..
Hotel is very spacious, large corridors, large rooms too. All very modern and new. However the dining area for breakfast is too small. The hotel has a huge capacity but not enough room for breakfast. That said the breakfast is of good quality and very well presented. Just go down early to avoid the crush.
In all this new and modern I was surprised to note they'd scimpped on a quality mattress. Mine already had a hole in it on both sides. I wonder if they're ever turned. Needless to say despite trying to sleep in my stomach my back got worse the two nights I stayed.
Finally, I am used to leaving the Do Not Disturb sign on my door until I leave my room at noon. I noted when I went to breakfast that house keeping were in my corridor. However when I left at noon they were in the adjacent corridor. When I returned at 10pm the room had not been made up. Obviously, if you're not out at 9am when house keeping have you on their pad, forget returning to a clean room.
Finally, finally. On checking out. I was not asked about my stay, so had no opportunity to share these failings. This despite being an IHG Gold card carrier.

This must be the top HI Express hotel. Spacious, comfortable and with friendly and efficient staff. Some of your other hotel operators ought to come here and see how it should be done!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by renrut great hotel with great aircon. in warm weather
Like a good 4 star Spanish hotel with broad, air con'd fresh ground floor open spaces and generously-spaced rooms.
Like all Holiday Inns, the bar prices are ridiculously high, relying on business expenses; v. high wine prices( wine glass nearly £4:00 - in this case, even more over the top because it overlooks Aldi where a bottle of wine costs less than hotel's glass ).
THIS IS A RECESSION, NOT LOADS-A- MONEY 1980'S.
Great hotel; great staff ; great rooms (re-think your walk-in showers before they swamp the rooms )

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Bunnybear It was good, but not as good as usual
I have come to expect a good level of service at this hotel. The staff are great (especially David on reception who remembers repeat visits).
Last weekend - was bitterly disappointed, not with the hotel, it really is value for money, but I had issue with one member of staff ( I will contact the hotel directly with details rather than bore anyone reading this).
The rooms are really good for a 3* with a decent bathroom and powerful shower. The beds are comfortable with a choice of a hard or soft pillow.
The food at breakfast is good considering it is included in your room price. Hot is beans, sausage and egg with toast. There are pastries, fresh fruit cereal. All the drinks come out of machines but is still pretty decent and the staff are attentive.
The bar is not too expensive, and as an alternative, you can go down to the local pub with is a short walk or for supplies there is an Aldi across the road. There is a KFC and Costa Coffee down the road.
The hotel is situated bang in the middle of A1 and M1 (say 7 miles from either road), so is suitable for those traveling elsewhere, but may be too off the beaten path for some expecting a hotel just off these roads

A great place to stay. excellent value . The room was perfect and the beds were the most comfortable I have ever slept in.
Bathroom was modern and spotlessly clean.
Rooms had air con, which was ideal for the hot nights.
Staff were very pleasant and willing to help with anything.
Couldn't believe that for the price paid, we actually had a breakfast included in the price.
Excellent and totally perfect.

great hotel , very friendly staff, pub 50 yards away, and a supermarket opposite, what more could you want. premier inn and travelodge take note, you could learn a lot from this chain.............. I just wish there were more of them around the country as they aren't as common place as their lesser rivals. and i'm away many weekends following my sport.

Excellent room, good check in, polite staff.
Only shame = dinner choices were basic - 'Pie' is mum food.
No comfortable lounge area - why TV everywhere?
Apart from that, it was EXCELLENT

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TonyF14 Surprisingly good
My wife and I needed two nights' stay for a family wedding. This was the cheapest place we could find on the Internet, so our expectations were not very high. However, the accommodation, friendliness and helpfulness of the staff, a more than adequate breakfast all surprised us and added immensely to the enjoyment of the weekend.
Thank you, Rotherham.

The revue title says it all, superb value for money, especially when booked 3 days in advance, with a free breakfast that is almost a "Full English".

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bells66 Excellent service
We stayed here for a friends wedding. Can't fault it at all.
The staff were very friendly and nothing was too much trouble.
The rooms were spacious and clean and had air conditioning which was a bonus as the temperature's soured. Excellent value for money would definitely highly recommend. We have stayed in Marriot hotels and other than a gym and swimming pool there was very little difference except the price!

If only all Holiday Inn and Holiday Inn Express were run with the same pride and efficiency of Rotherham North. It is a real pleasure to stop here and you feel like a valued guest. Great job. Well done. Will be pleased to stay when I am in Manvers next time.

Really impressed with this hotel, everything was very stylish, new and clean and beds,pillows etc very comfortable. Great bathrooms with ultra spacious showers, extras such as hairdryers, tea and coffee making, wi-fi provided. Also breakfast was much better than expected - a full range and hot options.

Great location, very clean and modern. Reception staff were very friendly and rooms were very comfortable with great air conditioning. The food in the restaurant was very good and as single diner I was made to feel very relaxed and looked after. Would definitely stay here again. Complimentary wifi was a Fantastic bonus.

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 :).

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Ainsy Power Failure
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.

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.

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.
