Travelled by train which was convenient as was only a few minutes walk up the hill and it is directly there.

Arrived early at 12.30, despite check in not being until 2, our room had been cleaned so we were able to check in straight away. The hotel is very modern with lovely lighting, seating and they have lots of technology for guests such as apple I Mac and X box.

The room was very clean, and as we stayed here for 3 nights was updated with towels, bins changed, and toilet roll. Also the cleaners were considerate enough to wait until we went out for the day to clean, unlike some other hotels. It is also possible to control the room temperature, which was convinent as one of the only downfalls was that it was very noisy when the window was open... not the hotels fault, near busy center.

Although I didnt eat here, the food looked great and it cost just over 10 pounds for 2 spirts and mixer at the bar. It is also close to the center where there are plenty of places to eat and drink.

The pool was nice although on the small side. It is also possible for people to see you in the pool from a window on the front of the hotel and at the bottom of the stairs. Thought the steam room didnt work at first, but then realised that you have to press a button. Also went to a nearby swimming pool called Ponds Forge which has a wave pool and slides. Would definitely stay her again.

We spent one night, visiting a relative. Staff were friendly, the room had everything we wanted, and we had no issues. My wife used the pool. Great value for money, and situated in the heart of Sheffield.

Room Tip: It is an urban setting, so do not expect any interesting or pretty views.

Booked this hotel late but was certainly pleased I did. Well situated in the city centre close to everything that you need to see. Arrived and found the rather small underground car park full so had to park illegally to unload and make my way to the upper floor reception area before going to a nearby secure hotel recommended car park. (£15 for 24 hours with a reduction from hotel down to £12)

Booking in was easy and professional. Room on fifth floor had good views over the railway station part of the city. Unfortunately the window did not open as it should have done and the air conditioning did not appear to be functioning properly. A call at reception explained that the window was being repaired at some time, was then offered the use of an oscillating fan that was soon dispatched to the room.

Large queen size bed that was low down, but very comfortable, a two-seater sofa also along with a roll out desk and chair, ideal for any computer work. Television was situated on wall at end of bed and had a large number of channels, something not normally found.

The bathroom was split in two, shower and sink in one room and a separate toilet, which makes things easier with two people trying to get ready quickly in the mornings.

Did not partake of food so cannot comment, however breakfast at £13.95 did seem rather on the expensive side.

Checkout was smooth and I would certainly use this hotel again and recommend it to anyone wanting a city central location.

Room Tip: High room best facing railway station

Myself and my fiance stayed here for a romantic city getaway and we were not disappointed. The hotel was modern, clean and very comfortable. Our room was a basic room by this hotels standard, yet it still had all the facilities I'd expect from better rooms of similar tier hotels

Breakfast was tasty and a decent variety was on offer. The location is fantastic, and the price Inc breakfast was very good value for money. I could only complain about one thing, that was the incredibly noisy party of women who had obviously had a very good night before and took great delight in telling each other about they're antics and how many times they vomited. This is of course not the hotels fault but it was quite busy and I think it would have been good if the breakfast manager had politely asked them to consider the other hotels guests. Maybe I'm just being picky or a grump but it fell just short of 5*s because of this.

On the whole a fantastic hotel that I will stay at again and will be recommending to others.

Dear AlexanderH150,

I am very pleased to see you enjoyed your break at the Novotel Sheffield Centre. Please accept my apology about the disturbance at breakfast. Sometimes we do have to rely on other guests to be aware of their surroundings and at the same time afford them their space. We will look into your comments and ensure we always address these sort of situations in the best possible manner.

Thank you very much for your feedback.

Kind Regards
