Drove to the hotel, roads clear until the country lane to the hotel, it was an ice rink, not the hotel's fault as it was a public road.
Arrived at the hotel, reception efficient, shown to room, it was round the side via a very treacherous path, but it was worth the danger!
Room was more of a suite, with a small sitting room with TV and seats, large bedroom with enormous bed, and an impressive bathroom.
Very quiet as the hotel had booked Christmas parties, but due to the snow 120 odd revellers did not turn up. Had evening meal, all right but nothing to shout about. Invited to but declined disco, retired to room, disco finished at 12pm on the dot, then 100% peace.
After excellent nights sleep, did I mention bottle of bubbly in room, negotiated path again for breakfast, buffet style and plenty of it.
Off to Sheffield for day then onto Stadium to see Jeff Wayne's War of the Worlds, back to the hotel to another bottle of bubbly, good sleep and another excellent breakfast, this time served in our room.
We'll be back as soon as we find another offer.

We stayed here recently while attending a wedding and were pleasently supprised by how nice the hotel and surroudnings were.

It is in a very pretty location and has a nice atmosphere we did nowever have a couple of moans.

We were attending a wedding at the hotel but decided due to being ill that we would head up to bed about 11pm, sadly when we arrived back in our room we realised our room was directly above the function room. the noise was so loud that holding a conversation was impossible and the vibrations could be felt throughout the whole room including the bed. sleep was therefor impossible until 00:45 when everyone had left the room below. I understand it is customery to allocate rooms to function guests close to the function room but it would have been nice to have been informed when checking in that our roon was unusable while the function was taking place. the function suite is fairly small and so i can only assume a small number of rooms suffer as badly as we did. it was wrong of the hotel to assume that everyone attending wants to be awake until the early hours of the morning.

Breakfast was enjoyable but offered only a small selection of cerials and hot items.

I would recommend this hotel however i would urge caution when there are wedidngs taking place.

This is a nice Sheffield Gem with a good restaurant, nice location and historic building.

Unfortunately while the staff are all very polite there is a lack of organisation at breakfast time with many guests wondering about not sure where to sit, and sometimes being greeted before sitting down, and sometimes being ignored (as no one was there).

Rooms 7, 8, 9 and possibly others are situated near to the loud humming of the kitchen fan which will wake you in the morning and does not go off until 10.30 - 11.00 at night.

So, despite the location we were not impressed overall.

Stayed at this hotel for two nights. Very comfortable room - although a little small for the amount of furniture. Very rural environment - you wouldn't think you were on the edge of Sheffield and not far from the M1. Quiet location in valley. Good breakfast served, but the star of the show was the restaurant. Excellent food from an imaginative menu and well priced for the quality of the meals. There was a wedding in the hotel during the Saturday afternoon and evening, but this caused no disturbance to us or other guests as it was held in a separate room. Service was very good and friendly from all the staff. They have obviously been well picked and trained.

We stayed on 22.01.11 for 1 night (romantic break) for a birthday treat. The room was lovely (room 5) very comfortable and we had 2 glasses of Port in the room waiting for us as well as the sparkling wine included in the romantic break package. The dinner menu was interesting and tasty with lots of choice and the staff very helpful. We would definitley return to Whitley Hall and recommend it to others.

We were visiting friends in Halfway, Sheffield and decided to stay overnight at Whitley Hall Hotel to take advantage of Xmas Shopping in Meadowhall the next day. I could not find fault with anything at this hotel. Amazing Scenery, our room looked over the lake and on entering our hotel room was pleasantly suprised to see that the Whitley Hall Website had not fabricated their photo's of the bedrooms, they are exactly the size you see. Exceptionally clean, lovely rooms, views are stunning, staff are all helpful and welcoming and made you feel nothing was too much trouble. There was also a Wedding in full swing when we arrived however this did not hinder or disturb our experience at this exceptional hotel. We arrived at about 6pm, requested a reservation for dinner @ 8pm. The food was fantastic and for £22.50 for two courses is very good value considering the Quality of the Food which was excellent, 2 bottles of Peroni cost £7.20 but this is to be expected in a hotel so we were not fazed by these prices. Another exceptional touch, was the small decanter of Port which I loved and drank rather too quickly..the poor husband really didn't get a look in!! Lovely quiet location, really comfortable king size bed which aided in a very good nights sleep where I awoke feeling refreshed and happy. Breakfast is between 7am - 9am.....make sure you do have the breakfast as we had the Full English and the food was amazing, the Coffee was devine.

This hotel deserves more than the 3* rating it has been graded............I have been to 5* hotels that cannot compete with this Hotel. Visit, you will not be dissappointed. I did not find any fault with this hotel and will be going back there in the Summer to explore the grounds fully and to sit out on the Terrace sipping drinks whilst taking in the extraordinary Scenery.
