Thank you for your lovely review. Lets hope you have another conference with us again soon, otherwise maybe a weekend visit to Sheffield?
Strange location, in the middle of University halls of residence. No noise from students while we were there however. Duty manager on reception was very helpful; he showed us to our room and then went to our car to put a parking pass on the dashboard. Room was clean and contemporary if a little small. Dinner menu was limited and portion sizes small, but the food was of a high standard. Good choice at breakfast. Waiting staff were all young and seemed very nervous, not really knowing what they were doing. At breakfast my plate was cleared before my husband had finished eating. Some of the public rooms seem to be in a state of flux, emptied of furniture. This hotel has potential, but some improvements needed.
Good morning Beatbaby34,
Thank you for your review and suggestions. All feedback is fed back to all area managers to ensure we are continually providing the best service we can to our guests. Our bedrooms are built into existing bedrooms from the girls halls that were part of the university for around 50 years. Although some could be considered on the smaller side, we hope to have provided all the amenities you would need during your stay in them, including bathrobes, slippers, hairdryers, and complimentary ‘White Company’ bathroom amenities. All of our staff are trained in each department to ensure great customer service; they are key for us providing our guests the best possible stay whilst with us.
We hope you enjoyed your stay at Halifax Hall and we look forward to seeing you again,
Very impressed with this lovely boutique hotel. Excellent customer service, with friendly, helpful staff.
Guests for 4 nights, during first time staying in Sheffield.
Room - although compact - had a great ensuite, breakfasts were first rate and evening dinner didn't disappoint.
Within a short walking distance of Botanical Gardens which are well worth visiting.
Once you get the hang of the bus routes, the hotel , while well out from the city centre,is accessible if you dont mind a bit of walking in an attractive part of Sheffield.
Would definately recommend Halifax Hall & hope to stay there again.
What a lovely review of our hotel thank you. Customer service is a priority for us so I’m always happy to read when we really provide the best to all our guests. I hope you enjoyed your first time in Sheffield, and if you are ever back in the steel city please think of us!
We spent Friday and Saturday night at Halifax Hall after my husband booked it online. On arrival the receptionist was very helpful and took us to our room. Halifax Hall can be difficult to find as it is in the grounds of some of Hallamshire Unis grounds, there is a large sign for the Hotel, you just have to look out for it! Our room was very nice, simple decor in neutral colours with a flat screen tv and complimentary bottle of water.The bathroom was large and modern with a lovely large, clean shower! There was a coffee station outside our room with various coffees and cookies and fruit..All free!!. We enjoyed the cooked breakfast and buffet style too...there was plenty of choice and it was delicious! The restaurant serves food but we ate out..see my review of the Indian restaurant (Masala I think)..My husband had a cider at the hotel and it was not overpriced. Would definitely stay there again..Lovely!!!
Thank you for your review. We are located on Sheffield University Halls property but as you said very well sign posted and we send out directions with confirmation emails prior to all of our arrivals to ensure a (hopefully) smooth arrival to our hotel. It’s a shame you didn’t stay for dinner with us but you got to sample our breakfasts and as you said home made cookies which I’m glad to read you enjoyed!
We hope the next time you are in Sheffield you think of us.
My husband and I stayed at the hotel for our wedding anniversary and what a fab place it is. A great welcome from Jamie on reception (so helpful and down to earth) who showed us to our room - the bedroom area is small but has everything you need and is finished to a very high standard. The bathroom was huge and featured a lovely free standing bath and large walk in shower. The rose petals and swan towels scattered around were a lovely touch. The refreshment stations on each floor are a great idea and much better quality than the usual sachets you get. Fresh tea, coffee, hot chocolate and a variety of fruit and cookies were available free of charge. We went out to dinner but sampled the breakfast the next morning which was lovely. The menu had a great variety and I particularly liked that you could pick and choose the items on a full english!! Nothing was too much trouble for any of the staff we encountered - all very friendly and eager to please. Great location - 10 minute walk to Ecclesall Road with a huge variety of bars and restaurants, 10 minutes in a taxi to the city centre, 5 minutes from Endcliffe Park. Ignore the negative feedback about the university halls - if you read about the history of the place you'll understand the surroundings and it caused us no issues at all. All in all it was a great stay and I would definitely recommend.
Good Morning Rochky81. Thank you for your great review of our hotel and our service.
First of all, Happy Anniversary! Thank you for choosing to spend it with us at Halifax Hall! I’ll pass on particularly to Jamie your kind words. I’m glad you enjoyed your stay and all the amenities we offer. We love our premium coffee offering so I’m happy to read you enjoyed it too. We like to think that particularly due to where we are based, all of our guests really can relax and enjoy their time with us without the worry of noise and disturbance from busier town centre roads, but as you said within walking distance to some of Sheffield’s great night life.
Hopefully see you again soon,
Gorgeous part of Sheffield, extremely quiet out of term time.
Staff were exceptionally friendly, so helpful and ready to help with anything, including take out sandwiches for breakfast when we left at 4.30am to go watch the Tour de France!
Dear helen t,
Thank you for your lovely review. We do hope you enjoyed your day watching Tour De France! I'm happy our staff were able to assist with early morning breakfast sandwiches.
We hope to see you again soon,
