“Excellent value/service for a budget price!!”
Reviewed 2 November 2011

Stayed for short weekend, first time in any ETAP hotel. Location good and easy to find; quite a way from city centre but close to M1. Room small but spotless and well equipped. Step-in shower cabinet but fully enclosed and good. Washbasin/vanity unit in room itself to save space. Separate wc, but still ensuite. All very clean. Service at check-in/breakfast was efficient and friendly (especially the over-worked girl on Saturday!!). Super value at just over £40 for B&B for 2 and parking. Breakfast was basic continental, but as much as you wanted and brilliant coffee from a machine!!! (Tchibo from Germany). Very impressed. All you need at low cost.

We used the hotel for a stop over on our way further north, it was basic but very clean, staff were friendly,no tea of coffee facilities in the room however there is a coffee machine in reception, goodvalue for money, ideal if you just want someone to lay your head for the night, very close to arena and centretainment venue in sheffield, overall we were very satisfyed

Etap are a friendly chain of hotels which I have stayed in all across Europe but unfortunately they seem to attract a certain breed of undesirables in the UK. Maybe its the budget price that draws them in or maybe it is just a fact people here have no respect for others. For some reason drunken people shouting in the car park all night seems to be a feature here.

The rooms were far to hot to sleep with the window closed so we had to suffer the noise. Unfortunately sleeping is a big part of the hotel experiance for me so I had to score it much lower than if I had slept soundly all night.

Apart from the noise and the lack of toilet paper in the reception lavatory everything else was satisfactory. The beds and rooms were clean and the breakfast was good value for money.

We stayed at this hotel because of the Alan Carr show at the arena, we wanted something cheap and cheerful, but we got a dirty room!
To start off with, there was dirt on the walls which looked like coffee had been spilt down it! The carpet had quite a few stains on it which looked like dried in mud. Now, what we found most disgusting was a false eyelash in the top bunk bed! Obviously the cleaners at the hotel don't do a proper job..
Oh, and there was a leak in the toilet, not to mention dirt on the door! And let's not forget mould around the window.
When we complained the receptionist didn't seem to care, she was very rude asking bluntly where we found everything. We didn't even get an apology, she just scribbled it down on a scrap of paper which she probably won't follow up!
I am absolutely disgusted with this hotel and I would advise people not to stay here!! I wish we stayed at the Premier Inn just across the road!
Overall a very dirty room and very rude staff! DO NOT STAY HERE!

Last weekend me and my friends stayed here for my friends 21st ... At 2am the security guard that interrogated us at the door as we came in came up to our room and said he heard us making noise which we clearly were not as we was getting ready for bed then he started saying we was smoking weed in the room which we wasn't! Then he came back 10mins later to tell us we were all kicked out and to pack our things and leave! Absolute joke!! Do not stay here if you are having a night out as u will be sleeping on the streets plus the money we payed we could have stayed in a travel lodge and actually had somewhere to sleep!!!!!

Chose this hotel purely on price, as I knew the location. Room was very clean and the shower was possibly the best we have encountered.

Cleanliness was good, the TV could have been better for channels but this could have something to do with the digital switchover in the area.

The Supertram was a 5 min walk away and serves all the city centre at a bargain £3.70 for an all day ticket.
