The staff were very friendly and polite. They answered all questions that I had about the hotel and city.
The beds in the room consist of a double bed already made with an unmade (bedding provided) single bed as a bunk above it. The beds had foam mattresses. Although these weren't uncomfortable, they were not particularly comfortable either. The foam held firmly, but did have some give. One of the best form mattresses I have ever slept on.
The TV when turned on had a very loud default volume. Be sure to be hold down the volume down button very quickly after pressing the standby button.
The shower facilities are essentially in the room. There is a sink in the room in a non-carpeted area. The wall here is mirrored nicely with adequate lighting. Beside this there is the door into the shower. This door is made of very frosted glass so the individual cannot be seen, but will be stepping in and out of the bedroom. The toilet was in a cupboard behind the room door.
There was a shelf in one corner with a hanging rail and a few hangers underneath. There were no doors or covering of any kind for this area.
The window could only be opened half an inch.
There was a desk with one plug socket (other than that the TV was plugged into), and a cheap computer chair. There were no internet facilities within the room.
The room also lacked tea and coffee making facilities. Hot drinks were available self-service 24/7 in the hotel lobby at over £1 each.
The breakfast was just under £4. It consisted of brown and white sliced bread. A very slow toaster was provided (4 to get a golden brown toast). There were also croissants, sliced baguette style rolls, and blueberry muffins. For cereals there were cornflakes and rice krispees. Milk, apple juice and orange juice was available, and hot drinks were included in price. A good selection of jam, honey, nutella, butter and spread. I did not feel this was good value.
In the hotel lobby there is a selection of microwaveable food, sandwiches, yoghurt, etc. available 24/7 and a microwave. There is also a computer for internet access.
Car parking is not included in price, nor guaranteed.
The #69 bus runs directly past and cost £1.80 into Sheffield, and £4.30 for unlimited day travel. Frequent service during weekdays, but does run every day.
The hotel is next to the ice rink and stadium, about two miles from the city centre.
