“Does what it says”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2014

Stayed here for one night. The room was modern and clean, the bed was very comfortable. Breakfast was excellent, fried eggs and crispy bacon on request if you wanted it. The staff friendly and welcoming. Ideally situated and if you want a nice short pub crawl then the Harlequin, Fat Cat and Kelham Island Tavern within easy walking distance.

I caught a last minute deal for this hotel, it was some £30 for the night, bargain! The hotel is situated very well for access by car, I parked in a nearby NCP which the hotel has discounted rates for.

The room was modern and clean, well appointed. I had a great nights sleep and a good shower the following morning. Reception staff were very courteous and helpful. Certainly value for money and this price - and actually one of the better hotels I've stayed in Sheffield city centre.

Aside from the hotel - I had a brisk 10 minute stroll up to West Street for a few drinks and a meal, although you do have to go through the lower end of town which some might not enjoy.

Spacious Room, Friendly and helpful Reception Staff, Location ideal for Sheffield - a 5 minute walk to City centre, alongside River Don by Lady's Bridge.
Decor and bathroom a little old fashioned and room could be lit better - but very minor niggles. It was all fine and good value.

Great for a short stay, very clean and well located. Staff were attentive and friendly.

Trouser press did not work, but beds were comfortable.

Room was spacious.

If passing through I highly recommend.

We were attending an event at Ponds Forge and booked the hotel because of its proximity to the venue but we were pleasantly surprised. The staff were welcoming. The room was large, clean and comfortable. And, although a number of large groups checked in at the same time, it was quiet. Had a great night's sleep. We will definitely book into this hotel again.

Stayed for 3 nights to attend a sporting event in the city.

On the whole a positive experience - good central location within easy reach of Railway Station, Other Public Transport and City Centre facilities.

Warm welcome at reception, much appreciated when lashing down with rain outside, and staff very willing to make your stay as comfortable as possible (e.g. WiFi Codes)

My only couple of gripes:
1) Not starting Breakfast until 8am on Sundays was disappointing - I know there will always be a cut off but perhaps there could be a way of opening a little earlier for a reduced service (basically remove the hot stuff) but offer people a bowl of cereal and fruit. The "Express Breakfast" as an alternative is vastly overpriced and was also very unappetizing.

2) Room was a bit dark as no light in the main portion - However didn't cause any problems.
