Right between Fulwood and Ecc Road. Rooms are compact and very well decorated. The staff were friendly and professional. Exceptional value for money. Public rooms still have a charming university building feel. Have the cooked breakfast!

Lovely helpful staff. Nicely decorated and comfy bedrooms. Great breakfast and room service. But weird location surrounded by uni halls of residences. Good location for South and west of city and easy to get to town. The public rooms need attention though. Lighting is far too bright, decoration too institutional. Breakfast room squashed although didn't stop me enjoying lovely scrambled egg and bacon!

Room Tip: Go for a suite it's worth the extras

Myself and my wife stayed at Halifax Hall while in Sheffield visiting old friends and from the moment we arrived we were impressed.
We arrived about an hour and a half early but was told our room was ready,reception staff were warm and welcoming, showed us to our room and some of the facilities we could use while we stayed, there was a problem with the coffee machine but she immediately went and fetched us two, we also asked if we could get anything to eat and was told that there was a wedding reception which they were catering for but if we would like a sandwich she would ask the chef and no more than 20 minutes later our two club sandwiches arrived at our door.
The room was clean and comfortable, the bathroom also with a excellent shower.
We would definitely recommend staying here for anyone, only a 10 minute taxi ride from Sheffield railway station, close to plenty of local bars and restaurants Halifax Hall is a great place to stay for a over night or long weekend.

The hotel rooms and staff are excellent. It is the first time in years that someone has actually walked me to the room and explained how things work and I am a frequent global business and leisure traveller. It was a really professional service.

Some reviewers have complained about not having tea and coffee making facilities in the room. What they may have failed to mention is that the upside to this is that the drinks are of a great standard, with fresh milk and lovely cookies. Even when we came in at 1am the night receptionist got us some more cookies as ours had run out!

The cold breakfast offering is great. The only slightly less than optimal aspect was the cooked breakfast. In our opinion it did not deliver in a number of aspects specifically: it was advertised as being served with sautéed potatoes but we actually just got some whole boiled new potatoes, we thought this was a little odd; the black pudding was burnt; we thought the sausages had a funny taste and the beans were watery; you had to make your own toast to go with the breakfast which was quite hard to co-ordinate.

However, this is a minor point as the breakfast does not cost any extra but we think that by improving the breakfast this could be a truly excellent option for a trip to Sheffield.

I would definitely stay again and recommend to a friend.

Dear BingoManchester,

Thank you for your lovely review. I am always so happy to hear the service you received was excellent. I am so sorry to hear your cooked breakfast was not to our standard, I will be sure to pass this onto the chef who can ensure this doesn't happen again.

We look forward to you hopefully visiting us again one day,

Laura.

Together with a colleague from my university year I organised a reunion dinner at the Halifax Hall Hotel in Sheffield. The reunion dinner was for 39 members of our Group held in November 2013. Without exception the 38 of us who were able to attend voted it a very enjoyable and memorable experience mainly because the Hotel looked after us in exceptional style, both in terms of comfort and catering. It is described as a Boutique Hotel and we consider it came up and exceeded our expectations. For Sheffield University graduates considering a year reunion we could not recommend anywhere better. In our situation we were granted a concession on our room reservations as we were returning graduates from Sheffield University which made it even more appealing from a cost viewpoint. The manager - Paul - made a point of personal attention to our every need and the staff in general were most helpful and courteous in every detail.
We'd give it 5 stars for comfort, service and cuisine.

Room Tip: The Johnson suite was most comfortable.

Although right on the edge of the student village, this is a beautiful and peaceful hotel. Great care has been taken over the rooms which although compact are very clean and comfortable. The modern en-suite bathrooms are spotlessly clean. You will find bottled water, and a towelling robe as well as the usual things in the room. The only thing missing is tea and coffee facilities and these are provided in the hallway with fresh milk available and fresh fruit and cookies. Breakfast was fabulous - a range of cereals and fresh fruit which can be followed by a cooked breakfast - it was excellent. Staff are very warm and welcoming and extremely hard-working. This hotel is very much worth a visit!

A trip down memory lane - my wife had been a student in Halifax Hall when it was a hall of residence. The staff had got us a room as near as possible to her room 40 years ago. It was brilliant, the staff are very good indeed and we had a totally memorable time there. Really good all round.

Dear Paul H,

So glad to hear your stay was wonderful for you and your wife. We love having alumni visit us. I'm sure it looks different but we were insistent on keeping as many original features as possible from the old blocks.
Hope to see you again!

Laura.
