I have stayed at the Staindrop a number of times throughout 2010 and 2011 as it is less than a mile from our Sheffield based office.
The hotel itself is excellent with spacious, immaculately clean rooms and plenty of in-room extras (sewing kits and shoe mitts for example). The bathrooms are a little ‘quirky’ with an enclosed bath and shower (feels a little like a pod and can seem claustrophobic at times!) but functional if a little lacking with the shower power. Rooms also have Sky Sports (if interested) as part of standard channels.
The staff are always friendly and are happy to help in any situations, there is also free Wi-Fi throughout the hotel (I have found the signal to be quite weak in some rooms.)
The only real negative that I do have is in regards to the food, I recently stayed for 2 nights and had the same meal on both nights, the first night I found the food to be tasty with a decent portion size the second night was a completely different experience with possibly the driest meal (Chicken Breast, Potatoes and Vegetables) that I have EVER had, this had also just been ‘thrown’ on to the plate (the first night was nicely presented). If this had been the first time I had stayed at the hotel I could have put it down to different chefs but this seems to be a common issue with little consistency being shown on the menu.
I really like this hotel and would fully recommend it, the food (on the right night) can also be really nice.
