B&B / Travelodge or something similar near Sheffield?

We are thinking of breaking our journey between London & N.Yorks over half-term to visit Magna. Anyone know of a good B&B or similar in that area?

Pickledbeetle ... there was a thread about this recently. this might help
We're going to Magna this week too btw (on Friday). Have you been before?

No we haven't been before but always try to do something to split the journey where possible. Someone mentionned this and Eureka to me so just had a look at the website.
It looks suitable because it is just off the M1.

pickledbeetle, the previous thread is for MeadowHEAD not MeadowHALL, they are on different sides of Sheffield and MeadowHALL is near the motorway, just incase you get confused!

I would steer you away from Eureka - it is fab, but aimed mainly at 4-9s I would say. (I think yours are older - is that right? Just worried now in case I've dreamed up the age of your children!)

There is an Ibis hotel just off the Sheffield Parkway, at about £45 per room a night. Very central to Sheffield but only about 20 minutes drive max to Magna.
Also the Holiday Inn in SheffieldThere are a few on here too. And these are the Rotherham ones too. I would have thought Sheffield centre would be better if you want to eat out though. Not been to Rotherham for a while but used to be a bit dodgy in centre (no offense anyone )

Oh and right near Meadowhall, junction 34 - very close to Magna - is the Premier Lodge . Next door to TGI Fridays, or just down road to the Valley Centertainment for eating out - also cinema and bowling.

Hula, that's the one (Premier Lodge) I thought was a Holiday Inn! I've been away too long...

Pickledbeetle ... Did you get to Magna this week? Hope you enjoyed it as much as we did today.

Thanks everyone for your help.
Sadly we didn't get there as my mother was unwell. Next time?!! (We'll be travelling that route again in August!)
Roisin - Glad you enjoyed your trip
