A ‘boutique’ hotel right in the middle of Sheffield.
My wife and I recently had a one night layover in Sheffield and chose the Leopold from the TripAdvisor reviews. It is centrally located and lacks only an on-site car park. Parking is available nearby but take a sat nav with you or you might never find the hotel again, mark you, it might just be that I, being an old duffer who can get lost at night going to the bathroom, have simply lost my sense of direction!
We stayed in one of the mezzanine suites which at £99 is excellent value for money, plenty of space to spread out and a comfortable king sized bed so even the star fish next to me failed to push me onto the floor.
The one slight draw back was the temperature of the room. Hot air rises and with the bed on the upper level it was hot. Turning the aircon to 16 had no effect and it was not until the morning that I discovered one also had to find the ‘hot/cold’ control and turn it to cold or the stupid machine ignored the set temperature and continued to pump out hot air – go figure!
Reception apologised and admitted the room instructions were lacking and needed amending.
I made mention of the problem in their on-line comments form and had a reply back intimating it might be my fault as and I quote “ I am sorry that your room was too hot, I am sure one of our team who are available 24hours would have been happy to sort for you.” OK but who’s to know setting the temp at 16 doesn’t work?
Should I need to stay in Sheffield in the future I have no doubt I would pick the Leopold again but I might pack my sand shoes and a camel just in case!
