Stayed here for 3 nights, as a couple, for a weekend break. We were sceptical about the hotel after reading recent reviews and seeing travellers photos, however we were pleasantly surprised when we arrived! Yes, the old, boarded up petrol station is very unsightly however, when entering the hotel itself it has a warm feel and the staff on reception were fantastic. Our check-in was smooth and efficient and both receptionists were helpful in providing parking information.
We loved our room (double), it was a big room with plenty of space, it was spotlessly clean and had all of the amenities you could need! The only issue we found was the heat - our room was so hot all of the time! However, we found that keeping the bathroom door closed helped a lot to reduce the heat (we didnt know if/how the towel radiator switched off).
We had breakfast each morning of our stay which we really enjoyed, as the hotel was quiet the restaurant done the breakfasts made to order, instead of the usual buffet style so our food was hot and fresh which was great, there was also a constant supply of tea, coffee and juice. We also had sandwiches from the hotel restaurant which were both great.
The only thing that we didn't like about our stay at the hotel was when we arrived back after a night out on the Sunday was the two male reception staff, who did not smile, or greet us, and didn't even acknowledge us when we spoke to them - a shame as the rest of the staff were great!
We would especially like to comment on the service received from the bar manager, who was super friendly and went above and beyond to help us enjoy our stay, offering loads of advice on where to go and what to do. He was always very chatty and approachable and is a credit to the hotel :-)
All in all, we enjoyed our stay at Sheffield Metropolitan, we would recommend the hotel and we would stay again! Excellent value for money!
