The staff here are so friendly and helpful, they called a taxi for us, gave us directions to places and let us store our bags when we went shopping. Nothing was ever too much, always smiling. Everything was clean in the hotel, fresh towels and tea and coffee were provided. I will say that the lighting wasn't all that great in the room and the walls are pretty hollow. So if like us you've got a group of loud northern girls staying opposite who come in at 3am be prepared to be woken up. I even heard next door running a bath. It is within great walking distance to the train station and shopping facilities. We stayed for one night but would stay again in the future.

Stayed here last night after a night out and even due to the fact some of my drunken friends were causing a bit of a scene down stairs the two receptionists on duty, Stuart and Nichola, did an amazing job of sorting out the situation calmly and in a friendly manner, the rooms were spot on aswell would definitely recommend staying here

What a wonderful hotel. Ticked every box for us. Excellent in every respect - friendliest staff ever encountered in a hotel, fantastic value, large clean room, very comfy beds, breakfast cooked to order, convenient location for city centre and university, discounted parking in multistorey opposite - cannot recommend too highly. We had pre-booked a double room at a bargain rate for the night before our son's graduation, and at the last minute he decided to stay too, necessitating a phone call to the hotel at lunchtime on the day of our arrival. No problem, said the lovely receptionist, they would change us to a family room, extra cost just £10 plus another £8 for an extra breakfast. What time would we be arriving? - not sure, we had stopped to shop at Meadowhall. My favourite shopping place! she responded, enjoy, take your time, our reception is open 24/7. This set the tone for our stay. The room was lovely and warm when we arrived, we could have as many keys as we liked, the extra bed was very comfy too, the room spacious and well lit, all clean, plenty of towels. bath accessories and tea, coffee and hot chocolate. Next morning the breakfast offered cereals, yogurt, fruits, toast etc, plus a sumptuous cooked breakfast cooked to order. On booking out, the system for getting the discounted parking rate was carefully explained to us - they really couldn't have been more friendly and helpful all the way, both receptionists plus the lovely breakfast waitress who (when discovering I wasn't feeling too well) was only too happy to get me just a plateful of scrambled egg suitable for a sore throat! Do stay in this hotel if you are visiting Sheffield; we will definitely be back.

I stayed here with my partener on a friday night ready for a night on the town. The hotel room was large flat screen tv and a comfy bed. Nice view from the room of the river too. I payed 50 pound and 5 pound to park for 24 hours. The car par is next to the hotel part of the holiday in. We dident have breakfast as i thought 8 pound per person was a bit too much. But nice clean hotel and nice staff.

I am writing this review after day 1 of a conference held here in the hotel. So far it has been great. A super fish and chips lunch was served followed by some nice deserts.
Friendly and chatty staff throughout.
Parking is just opposite the hotel, in a secure multi-storey. Get your ticket in the usual way and when you are leaving swap it for a discounted parking ticket with the hotel reception.
