“Wonderful hotel”
Reviewed 19 April 2014 via mobile

The quality and standard of accomodation was excellent and the historial features made our stay in this victorian hotel a pleasure. The staff are also friendly and helpful, we even had a guided tour of the old ball room which was spectacular. I will definately be booking another stay in this hotel soon.

I always love coming back to this wonderful victorian hotel.
Great food in the "Cunninham's" and as always going with a very friendly and caring service.
Check out the special monthly themed set menues: April 2014 Marocco!!
And, as a birthday present, I got wonderful, sunshiny weather.
Great place to celebrate your special party, to stay for a shopping tour (Meadowhall Shopping Mall) or go hiking in the peak district national park.
Will come back soon!

It was slightly cheaper than Premier Inn when I booked, so we thought we would give it a go even though it was not in the best location. Due to an event being on we were relocated to the annexe newer part for 'quiet'. Took earplugs in case and used them. It wasn't noisy but the usual families in different rooms going between them so many times so all you hear is doors closing. Quiet through the night with ear plugs in. Doors and thumping around from other guests started about 6am. The room was very large though it is a shame Holiday Inn could not have put more effort into the furnishings. Some of the pictures on Tripadvisor show slightly newer looking rooms. The bathroom had been renovated though and the room was clean. The curtains looked pre-smoking ban and had a couple of holes in. Can't imagine we would stay here in the summer as there was no air-conditioning, just a small fan in the wardrobe. The door on the wardrobe needed looking at as did not open/close easily. At the end of the day it was £60 and was fine for a night. As kids eat free we decided not to eat in the hotel as we could imagine what they would entail. 15 minute walk to Fargate though you have to walk through the old Castle Market area. Car parking simple. Plenty of spaces at 2.30pm. Just park. write down your registration plate on check-in and then pay the £5 on checkout. No bonus points/free drink voucher offered like at the last few IHG stays I've had but not sure if that offer has ended. Staff polite and efficient. Would not want to pay more than what I paid though.

This hotel is so beautiful. I love coming to this place. Exeptionally clean and very high standard rooms. Food is absolutely divine and staff couldn't be more helpful. Any problems and the manager himself is always on hand to help. I can rate this hotel highly enough

First off can not stress enough what a beautiful hotel this is, we had our wedding here 2 weeks ago and it was fantastic, best day of both mine and my husband's life. Just want to say how friendly and helpful the staff are they went out of there way to keep everyone happy.

The day went so smoothly and relaxed and alot of the guests were very impressed with the staff and the actual place it self.

And last of the food was amazing we had soup of vegetable for starter lamb for main and apple pie for dessert :)

If you want a fantastic day, with no stress happy and friendly staff i'd defininty recommend here for a wedding!!!
