“Great if you are using Ponds Forge”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 February 2013

Clean, functional, friendly and within a two minute walk of Ponds Forge. The rooms are clean and with everything you need for a short stay. Our view was of the side of a building but we weren't in the room very much so it didn't really matter. The breafkast has a choice of continental or cooked, all on a buffet. Parking is a very short walk away in the Q car park.

Booked here by a public sector client. This is an Ibis, much the same as any other you'll find all over Europe.

The room was comfortable, with a choice of additional pillows, tea/coffee making facilities, TV, hairdryer, phone. The decor overall was on the tatty side and furnishings needed repair/repainting, there were plenty of veneer chips on the tables and wardrobe.

The bed was comfortable and I slept well.

The bathroom, which resembled a plastic pod in the corner of the room (funky design: no bad thing!) - the one gripe was the terrible drains smell every time you opened the door, that and the very slow draining of the sink water. Now, surely the housekeeping team noticed this too and flagged it to maintenance? You'd have to possess a very heavy cold to miss the disgusting pong every time you opened the door. It seems it wasn't a priority to fix this.

Food was passable, breakfast is the traditional buffet: fruit, breads, yoghurt, fake scrambled egg, beans, sausage and bacon. Nothing special. Dinner menu is fair, I had the king prawn starter and the curry, both served quickly and courteously. For the same money locally you could easily find something better, we were on an inclusive rate.

Temperature in the bar restaurant fluctuated from icelandic to tropical in a 20 minute period. When given the feedback the staff's response was at best luke-warm "yeah, it's not working" (no [--] sherlock!!) and why is there a thermometer attached to the lighting chain adjacent to the air-con vent? Weird! Not impressive.

All-in-all, not a bad experience, although the bedroom corridors do echo my thoughts of what an 'open prison' rather than stylish budget hotel might look like - maybe time for an update.

Holiday Inn express are just round the corner and I suspect offer a better experience.

This was our second stay at the Ibis and once again we weren't disappointed. Really easy check in/check out process, very friendly staff, simple but clean rooms, and great bathroom and shower facilities. We also took advantage of the room service, which was quick and tasty, though it would have been even better if my fiance hadn't had to go all the way down to reception to order.

This is a very minor quibble, though. The hotel did everything we needed it to, and with it's great central location, (and brilliant parking discount!) the Ibis confirms that this is the only place we look to when booking overnight accomodation.

Got checked into Hotel quickly,with no problems. Room was nice and clean. The only problem I had was being woken up by other guest's in the corridor's during the early hours of the morning. But it being a weekend that's what I would expect, so it wouldn't put me off staying at this Hotel again. Also I was a bit surprised in the 50p price increase on Breakfast. All staff were friendly and helpful. Would use again.

The Hotel is excellently placed for the centre of Sheffield. The rooms are very quiet and we would recommend this Hotel to anyone. We now stay at this hotel every month when we take our grandchildren out for a meal.
