Drove past this B&B and avoided it due to the grotty looking front of the building, however after driving round for 2 hours looking for somewhere else to stay and having no luck we ended up back at the Alara and stayed here, just goes to show "don't judge a book by its cover"I was pleasantly surprised, very friendly staff,...

Stay 2 nights 6b &9a both at the front of the building,rooms at the back could be better, away from the main road.Basic rooms but tea/coffee available,tv,towels,H/C water, all you need for a short stay.Breakfast is a must have at at £5.00,served by friendly staff. Not brilliant accommodation but then,you get what you pay for.

I stayed at the Alara for 5 nights from 21/10- 25/10. I was in Sheffield on a course and I found that it was exactly what I was after. I was warmly welcomed to the B&B, there is a good amount of off road parking and my single room was of a decent size. It had a comfortable bed, TV,... More

I booked the Alara at the absolute last minute as we needed a place to stay when taking our daughter to Sheffield University. Only then did I read the shocking reviews. We decided to stay anyway as we really had no choice and thought that all experiences are ultimately enriching. Upon arrival we parked at the rear of the Hotel... More

The place is set on a main road next to Sheff Weds ground. The rooms are really basic and toilets and showers are at the foot of some stairs that can only be discribed as hymalayan. Spend a little more and stay at travel inn etc.

The only way to describe this "hotel" is like been on a ship, stairs steap as f***, rooms tiny and old fashioned with 90s wall paper. I would avoid next time I come for shore. But what can u say for 25 a night

I spent a night here on my way to Scotland. I found the staff to be very friendly and welcoming and the double room and shared bathroom were both very clean. The staff were also very helpful in terms of recommending places to eat and methods of transport. This is an old, old building and so the steps leading to... More

I picked this place as it was close to work. It was reasonably clean. It could do with updating. The staff were very friendly, breakfast was good. They have off road parking. The bed they had for me needed the sheet changing (was stained with sweat) I moved to the other bed in the room. They have wifi which was... More
