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

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

Cost was £70 for Double Room with bathroom, parking, Wifi & breakfast included. Our room was on the 1st floor at the back. We didn't... More

This B&B is in a good area for transport into Sheffield, trams running every few minutes and less than 5 mins walk from the Alara. I had a good nights sleep and for the good price I got for my room I had an en suite. Breakfast was good, there is a choice of cereals, toast and a full english,... More

I was very disappointed with my recent stay here. The bedroom was freezing cold and the owner just shrugged his shoulders when I mentioned it. He was unhappy I wouldn't pay cash when I wanted to pay by debit card. At breakfast there was no milk for my cereal and no butter for my toast and not a staff member... More

Life is full of contradictions... Like... "Never judge a book by it's cover" or "first impressions count" Hmmm... The cover of this book says grotty. On a busy main road, tiny car park, noisy. When I arrived I wandered around for a good five minutes as there was no one there to greet me. But then I saw a lady... More
