I love this hotel, it's got great character and some unique features. I find it more friendly than the usual premier inns I tend to stay in. Decent price, nice breakfast, lovely and warm in the winter and can't wait to go back in the summer to see it in bloom. Thanks guys another lovely stay x

Stayed on business, like other reviews it is a motel style hotel with a independent reception area, rooms are in blocks with external access. So if it is raining you will get wet. Not an expensive hotel but I found the rooms are ready for refurbishment! the bathrooms in particular. The shower was a bit of a miss match, there was a large shower head but the water pressure was not that great, it had a shower curtain rather than a screen. The floors are creaky and you can hear people walking around in the rooms above. Also due to the electronic door system the doors were being slammed to try and shut them, at all hours.
Tried the bar for a drink, warm atmosphere, busy and pleasant staff. Breakfast has a self service area with toast cereals, juices and tea-coffee machine, or you can have a cooked meal.
Car parking is available on the cobbled street just up from the hotel.
In general if the hotel is in the location you want, and you do not have high expectations then The Garrison may suit. As others have said you get what you pay for!

The Garrison is very good value for money and if you have business in the area it is an ideal place to stay.
The rooms are clean and comfy and breakfast was excellent.
Lokk out for Crawshaws on balcony for super sarnies.

If you just need somewhere to sleep, then the Garrison offers good value. The layout is more like a motel than a hotel with external blocks of rooms accessible by walkways. They use an electronic door lock system which is irritating as its hard to close the door, resulting in much door banging across the site, which is an issue if you are trying to sleep.
Breakfast was fine, plentiful and cooked to order. The self service aspect gave a choice of cereal, fruit juice, fruit, toast and croissant with jams or marmalade.
It is what it is - an inexpensive place to stay in Sheffield. Easy to get into the centre on the tram.

Yet again The Garrison exceeded expectations for our 4th stay in this friendly hotel. As always our room was clean and comfortable. The staff friendly and helpful. The breakfast was plentiful. The price was great value. It's location was convenient for local shopping in Hillsborough and the Supertram into the city centre and Meadwhall. If I have one negative comment it is about the teabags which are pretty tasteless. We are already planning to stay there next year and will not hesitate to recommend this hotel to others.
