“Looks great but.....”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2013

Stayed here for 1 night on business. The staff are really friendly and helpful and the location and ambience of the reception and bar are excellent.
I didn't eat here but have to say I was disappointed with the room.
It was clean but very small and I didn't find the bed at all comfortable. The TV didn't work too well and it was quite noisy with the rumblings form the trams!
I would stay here again if I had to but the didn't think the room was value for money.

stayed one night on business, what lovely staff, the two ladies at reception were so warm and freindly, also enjoyed great service from the breakfast staff. rooms were comfortable and clean, and the bed was super comfy. enjoyed my stay. wouldn't call it a luxury hotel, due to lack of facilities, and small details like no washcloths in bathroom, but the staff are exaemplary

Room Tip: i hade a room facing the main street , which was suprisingly quiet

I have stated at the leopol approx 10 times now and that is for a very good reason. The place is amazing and not like a big chain hotel at all. Exceptionally decorated rooms and great staff make it a very pleasant stay.

When I first visited the Leopold was for my nans 80th birthday. I must say we were both well impressed with the spacious building. The modern collaborated with the old pleasingly. The whole atmosphere of the building was welcoming and the staff were no doubt very pleasant and helpful.
The room we has a large room which was more like an apartment, with a living area on the first floor and the bedroom on the second floor. We had breakfast in the morning and tasty it was. The traditional afternoon tea was sweet. If it was up to me I would have stayed for longer just for the comfort. There is plenty I could say but overall we were both well and truly enjoyed our stay.

Stayed last weekend with a party of 8. Staff couldn't have been more helpful, room lovely, (funny shape but it is converted school!) ambiance great. Couldn't fault it. Car park is a bit of a hike and finding the drop-off point given Sheffield's one way systems is a challenge but worth it! Thanks to all the employees who were so pleasant and made our stay so good.

Stayed at the Leopold for one night at the weekend and it was lovely. The rooms have been refurbished to a high standard. The bed was huge and the bedding relly good quality. The breakfast was nicely presented and the staff attentive. Only down side was that we could hear the noise from Leopold Square which kept me awake for a while. We were at the side of the building so would recommend that you don't accept a room at the back overlooking the Sqaure.
Would definately stay here again if ever in Sheffield.

Room Tip: Don't choose a room at the back overlooking Leopold Square.

Stayed overnight with a friend who was visiting her sister.found the hotel eventually as the entrance is so understated we missed it on the first pass. Reception staff were helpful and polite. We had a mezzanine room which was well appointed and a but different from your run of the mill rooms. It was clean and comfortable.
My only gripe was the lighting. The sensor light comes on in the night if you get up for the toilet which is really infuriating,and woke us both up. Health and safety gone mad again. There are no occasional lamps so it was dark under the stairs and it was not possible to put just the downstairs lights on so when I got up earlier than my friend to read a book the whole room lit up, upstairs and downstairs. Also, vile lighting by the make up/ bathroom mirrors. So apologies Sheffield if we looked like clowns!
It's a good, central location and the hotel is beautifully converted from a school. In the centre is a courtyard with bars and restaurants which we would have explored had we stayed longer.
I would happily go back. And I would try the afternoon tea which looked very nice.

Room Tip: The mezzanine room was worth the extra money
