“fantastic surroundings”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 15, 2008

fantastic location - couple of minutes drive to Eccleshall Road and the hustle and bustle of the shops, but felt like you were staying in the middle of the countryside! Stayed in a junior suite which had a balcony overlookin the lake - which was just wonderful. You can tell that the hotel was once the cream of the crop but it appears to be going down hill slightly - little things - there were mucky towels in the bottom of the wardrobe, no tea coffee milk etc, when we called up for some they said they would bring some to us straight away, an hour later they hadnt arrived so we ended up getting them ourselves from the stores! breakfast was delightful - really really good and you could view the lake from the restaurant. Leisure facilities were basic but swimming pool was really nice (but unmanned)however the reception at the health club was a farce! - the attendee was more concerned about gossiping about hotel guests rather than assisting anyone! All in all the beautiful views made the stay worthwhile but luxury was slowly deteriorating at the hotel.

On arrival at this hotel, it's an immediate wow after travelling through Sheffield town. It's in a leafy suburb and you would be forgiven for thinking you had arrived in the Country.

There are sufficient car parking spaces within the grounds of the hotel.

The reception area is pleasant and the staff equally so. Check in was swift and efficient and very polite.

The rooms however, are a bit of a let down. Don't get me wrong my room was clean but it was not as expected considering the wow factor on arrival at the hotel. I was staying in a twin room and did not see any other rooms so I cannot comment on those. The room itself is spacious and well equipped. One point to note is that my room was overlooked and had no form of blind or net curtaining which meant I had to close the curtains for privacy which blocked the view of the beautiful grounds. the beds are comfortable and I had a good night's sleep.

I ordered room service, which was acceptable. Breakfast is a buffet which is of varied choice which was enjoyable and makes for a good start to the day.

Overall, a good stay and the staff were very polite and friendly. I would stay here again.

My boyfriends parents booked us into this hotel for his birthday. At first (admittedly) I didnt really fancy the idea of a weekend in Sheffield, more of a beach babe you see. However we arrived Friday evening to find the 'more than generous' folks had booked us into the club suite. The room really was first class. Huge plasma screen, huge bed, sitting area overlooking the waterfront, nice bathroom complete with a very powerful shower... We dined that evening at the hotel restaurant which was really nice.. I would suggest your get there as early as possible as when we arrived (9pm) only 3 out of 7 starters were left. Food was nice though, an easy 7/10. Breakfast the next morning was fantastic. For £6 each we opted for breakfast in bed. For £12.50 each you could order anything you wanted... The following evening we dined at Fischers at Baslow Hall, very very nice and very very very posh, felt slightly out of my depth to be honest. Another review for that will follow!

So yes... If you intend on staying in Sheffield then the Marriot would be an excellent choice.

Marriott Sheffield. Elsewhere I have mentioned that Marriott can be overpriced for what it is, 5 star bills for 4 star services but not with the Marriott Hotel in Sheffield. Its by no means in the city centre but instead rests peacefully beside a lake in the suburbs. Based on an old suburban house it is really lovely, with immaculate rooms, spotlessly clean throughout. the whole hotel is very roomy and well looked after. This Hotel deserves 5 stars yet only charges 4 star prices. Not to be missed, I would'nt dream of staying anywhere else in Sheffield and definitely look forward to my next stay!

  • Liked — Lovely walks in locality
  • Disliked — Can be a bit difficult to navigate around the hotel

This hotel seems to have gone down the pan since it was taken over by Principal Hayley from the excellent Marriott group. The Leisure Centre is particularly bad. Maintenance and management are very poor. The pool, sauna, steam room and showers are constantly out of order. There seem to be lots of penny pinching economies e.g. no newspapers, no piano player, understaffing. Not what you'd expect from an hotel of this class.

Our fourth stay at Kenwood Hall, and the first since it was sold by Marriott to PH. It's in leafy Nether Edge, about 15 minutes from the city centre. Very close to trendy Eccleshall Road and it's many bars and restaurants. The hotel grounds are lovely, the best rooms in the new part of the hotel are 131 - 137, which overlook the small lake in the gardens on ground level. What's changed? Minibars have gone, robes and slippers have gone, carpets are looking a little threadbare and all the Marriott branding has been quickly taped over. It looks like the new owners are trying to save some money while they work out what to do with the hotel. That said, the rooms are clean and spacious, and the staff are very friendly and helpful; as Sheffield folk generally are. The breakfast buffet is extensive and will set you up for the day. We were there for a family wedding in the old part of the hotel (Kenwood Hall) and again the staff and the catering were very good indeed. Overall, it is a competitively priced hotel and we enjoyed our stay. I'll be interested to see what the new owners do to the property in the coming months.

We have just spent an excellent weekend in Sheffield staying the The Kenwood Hall hotel. The hotel is located in a very nice quiet area of sheffield , when we arrived there were plenty of car parking spaces. The reception staff were very welcoming and friendly and dealt with check in quickly.
Although our room was a few minutes walk from the reception it was not a problem, the room itself was very spacious consisting of an entrance area with a desk and two comfy chairs , a bathroom and finally a large bedroom with a comfy king size bed.
The hotel has leisure facilities , the pool was small but relaxing there was also a steam room a sauna and a gym , towels are provided for guests
Although we choose to eat locally in one of the many restaurants on Eccleshall road we did have breakfast in the hotel,the dining room overlooks the very pretty grounds of the hotel . The quality of the brekfast was very good as was the choice. There were cereals, fresh fruit, yoghurts, hot breakfast and plenty of breads.
The location of the hotel for us was excellent in that it was far enough away from the bustle of the city but near enough to get to easily.
Walking took 20 minutes to the city centre but maybe not suitable to walk at night into the city a taxi cost £6. Walking to Eccalshall Roads many bars and restaurants took 10 minutes.
