Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by jhan2 fabulous hotel
We booked five rooms three months in advance and stayed saturday night for a family reunion party in Sheffield, From the first enquiry to checking out, i couldnt fault the hotel. on arrival the reception staff were very friendly and efficient and had clearly made a note of my special request of an extra sofa bed, (which was made up. a big help) The entire hotel is very modern, spotlessly clean and new. the rooms are spacious with everything a modern traveller could need.. a desk with stationary, luxurious lighting telephone and a large tv and free wi fi, huge modern bathroom with extra touches, hand soap, shower soap and tissues. the offer of fresh clean towels daily and extra personal toiletries was available. The beds were large and immaculately made with both firm and soft pillows.
The 'free' breakfast was 'help yourself' continental/hot buffet which was perfect , with extra tea/coffee and juices available throughout the breakfast slot. Evening meals were available. but we decided to have a fresh sandwhich and costa coffee which was lovely.
The car park was full when we returned very late at night but two extremely helpful night reception staff kindly showed us to the alternative space just around the corner. thank you.
There is absolutely nothing to say against this hotel, i will definitely returning to the Holiday Inn Express, Blonk St, Sheffield, and would also recommend to my friends..i already have!!

Excellent 2 night stay, comfortable and clean. Nice to have a free breakfast with plenty of choices including hot food.
Only gripe being charged £5 a night parking - NCP car park right next door only £2.50!
Although hotel is in a newly developed area alongisde several other hotels you do have to walk through a rather run down area of Sheffield to reach main shopping/restaurants, not sure I would like to do it at night.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Londoner072014 not great- got some of the basics wrong
Forgot to install the booked cot in our room, so when we arrived (late in the evening) we then had to wait 20 minutes before it turned up. It was filthy, and there was no sheet for it (fortunately I'd brought a big muslin with me so we used that).
The bathroom was a shower room- have you ever tried to wash a baby in a shower? Again, on booking I had asked for a bath- they seem to have lost all those details.
The room was a bit shabby- the curtain had come away from the rail at one end, and the desk looking like it hadn't been prefabbed properly- the right hand end was at a funny angle.
The free breakfast is dire- if you are going to offer a limited selection of items, they should be good quality at least. Croissants were greasy, sausages were burnt, orange juice was undrinkable (and a strange dark orange colour).
In short really disappointing- especially from a new hotel.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Bairnabroad Staff are blind to filthy furniture
Typical HIX room and generally clean. The sofa was very badly stained along the front edge in numerous spots. Rather obvious what it was. Must have been in excess of ten separate marks. How the cleaners could ignore this is staggering. Called reception to report and someone was sent up with a sheet to cover the sofa.
Also, the ironing board cover was filthy and worn. Can it be so much for this hotel to have a look at the covers and either occasionally wash or replace.
Two of the most disgusting incidents ever in any hotel in any country. Open your eyes people!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by lizzy309 Basic but comfortable
We needed a place close enough to Sheffield train station on a tight budget as a last minute stay.
The Holiday Inn Express managed to do the trick. We had 2 single beds, which weren't the most comfy, but for the price we were fine.
Cleanliness in the rooms could be better. The toilet had the smell of one that hadn't been cleaned properly for a while
