We booked a two night last minute break at Halifax Hall to escape our home refurbishment for a couple of days. Although we have lived in Sheffield for many years we had never heard of this hotel and I was intrigued about its location - right in the middle of University of Sheffield student village. The hotel is in a great location - especially if you are a visiting the university. It is within easy walking distance of both Broomhill and Eccleshall where there are plenty of pubs and restaurants. It is set in lovely grounds and was very peaceful. However we stayed over Easter weekend, so there weren't many students around....
Our room was very small, however it was clean and the shower was very good indeed. Although well appointed in many ways (TV, hairdryer, safe, dressing gowns etc) the space was a bit of an issue - it was awkward to dry my hair and the only mirror in the room was in the wardrobe, which was in a tight space. It might have been better to have a smaller desk and perhaps a second mirror above the desk. The beds were very comfortable. Our room was very hot and we couldn't turn the radiators down, however on the second day we asked am member of the staff about this and they managed to run the radiators off, which made for a much more comfortable second night. Breakfast was included and this was great with plenty of choice and particularly lovely sausages. The public areas are comfortable and staff were attentive, without being over powering. The staff were lovely throughout our stay and were very helpful, friendly and professional throughout our stay.
