Stayed here on 14th November with my mum for a girly shopping weekend and a concert. Left booking a hotel a bit last minute and this was one of few that were left at a reasonable price. First thoughts pulling up to the hotel were that it looked a bit shabby, but these thoughts soon disappeared. The lady that welcomed... More

We stayed here for one night on the 31st October, the rooms were very clean and the staff were lovely and welcoming. Breakfast was nice and we were served very quickly. Good value for money. Would stay again if we were in the area! In a good area as it is close to different pubs and supermarkets.

I booked at short notice to break my journey up to Bradford for a golf weekend. The guy who showed me to my room was very helpful and welcoming. As others have said the stairs are rather steep and narrow but I managed to get safely up and down (with some care) with my golf clubs. The room was clean,... More

I paid £110 for 2 nights here, as others have said the stairs are very steep with very narrow steeps, I only had a small backpack with me if I had a case it would have been at best difficult at worst downright dangerous tacking it up and down the stairs. I was lucky to get into the "car park"... More

My partner and I visited the Alara last night as we went to a social event at Hillsborough Stadium. I will start with the one and only positive...it was literally next door to the Stadium which is great if you want a place close by if wanting a place to stay before or after a match. We arrived about 7pm... More

The room was booked at quite short notice, just a single for me to stay in whilst my partner was in hospital. The room up a very steep set of stairs, was basic to say the least, the bathroom wasn't very plesant to use.

We stayed at The Alara B & B for a 1 night stay in May. On arrival we were shown to our room by Katie, who was very pleasant and explained where things were situated and told us about breakfast the next morning. Our room was on the top floor and overlooked a busy main road. However, the glazing in... More

We usually stay in a travel Lodge when we visit Sheffield a couple of times a year as this is my home town and we live in Cyprus. We were overall very happy with the hotel , The staff were very friendly helpful people and so were the management. We had the en suite room and the shower was always... More

The depressing view on arrival next to a football ground did not improve when shown to my room on the second floor up two flights of very steep stairs (not for the faint hearted) especially as the bathroom was on the first floor. The room was clean but cold, slept in my fleece to keep warm, the wifi signal on... More
