“Best value for money in Sheffield city centre”
Reviewed November 24, 2012

A very definite last minute booking and I was very pleasantly surprised. Room quality was good though having a separate toilet from the actual bathroom was "interesting". Room was clean and with decent decor. Bed was comfy. Usual toiletries in the bathroom, in line with more expensive adjacent hotels. Lobby was nice, not as nice as "next door", but what the heck, I only wanted to stay overnight.

Now here's the best bit.....the cost was less than 60% of the next door hotel and breakfast was included ( not an extra £15 ). So when you are purely interested in an overnight stop in a clean and friendly hotel, I'd prefer to stay here over "next door" every time.

Novotel is ideally placed and only 5 minutes walk from the station. The ground floor entrance opens to the leisure facilities, the pool, gym etc. The first floor entrance opens on to a small court yard with outdoor seating. It is literally just behind the lovely Winter Gardens and the Peace gardens and again easy walking distance to High street shops and attractions.
Staff at the hotel are efficent and ready to please. The Hotel is very modern and pleasing to the eye. We had a superior room with a Queen size bed and bed settee. There was plenty of room and it was very clean and comfortable. We had breakfast in the restaurant and there was huge choice including Healthy options. Again staff are very good. i have stayed here a few times and will be returning again in January and can recommend it to anyone visiting Sheffield. Children sharing a room with adults are free and the hotel is child-friendly.

Hotel is situated right in the heart of the city, and most sights are within walking distance. As this was a special occasion we splashed out and requested a suite. We arrived early and was informed that our room would not be ready until 2pm (understandably) so we decided to take a stroll around the city centre. We returned just after 2pm to be told the room would be another 20minutes (no apology). We therefore went out again and returned 40 minutes later only to be told the room still wasn't ready. We had to wait another 20 minutes before being allowed to enter room. The suite itself was small but comfortable, although the decor is really outdated. The breakfast was basic and lacked any customer service. Apart from the cleaner we met in the morning who was really polite and helpful, the staff were disinterested in their guests and were not particularly polite or helpful. Try 'El Paso Restaurant' (about a 10minute walk from hotel) for some tasty food and good service.

Nice hotel, friendly staff but the room was boiling!

No working air-con so had to open the window to cool the room down. The hotel is near a busy road so sleep was impossible.

Other than that happy with the stay.

If all you're looking for is a reasonably cheap bed for the night in the city centre than the Novotel is a winner. However, there is an expectation that the accomodation will be up to a reasonable standard. The room was rather tatty round the edges with some damage to furniture and the bed linen was decidedly old and needed replacing - i do understand that they are trying to be 'green' and obvioulsy reducing their own costs but is it to much to ask to have bed linen that doesnt look like its been on the same bed for weeks. The shower area certainly need a scrub with black bits coming off the seals not very nice.
All the usual helpful equipment - iron, great tv etc etc and the lounge and reception areas are always fantastic shame the rooms never quite live up to my expectations....As always the staff are fantastic - happy smiling faces is always a winner with me.. Regret - didnt take my swimsuite didnt realise they have a pool and a gym... just to add to another review £10 for parking in the centre of sheffield in a secure car park is peanuts...

Room Tip: Blackout blinds and double glazing - never heard a thing!
