We had a one night stay at this hotel last week and were amazed to find it set amongst some superior quality halls of residence which in no way imposed on the hotel itself. The hotel is relatively new and the rooms are compact but very well furnished, and large bathroom was luxurious, and everything was exceptionally clean and well provided for. We had dinner and breakfast at the hotel. Dinner was superb, with very generous portions, the steak was to die for, and the service was very good. We asked that the chef be complimented on his cuisine! Breakfast was top quality products and everything in plentiful supply, and again service was very good. The reception staff can't do enough to help, and we also spoke to the manager who was charming and informative too. We cannot wait to stay again, my husband said this is the 2nd best hotel he has ever stayed in, and his top one is a 5* in Zurich, so that is a real compliment! Thank you Halifax Hall for a perfect stay.

Room Tip: Get a room with a bath!

Used this hotel for accommodation for a conference (the hotel was the venue). Nicely done, modernised rooms, excellent service and delicious food. Totally recommended and would happily stay there again in the future.

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,
Kind regards,
Laura.

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.

Room Tip: Stayed on ground floor & found it very quiet, with no disturbances - apart from a series of unexplained fire alarms one night!

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!!!

Room Tip: We were in room 107 which overlooked the garden,,i think most of the rooms do anyway. we were on the ground floor!

Dear Redhair!

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.
Kind regards,
Laura.
