Work has started on building a 32 storey tower block next to the hotel. Rooms overlooking the building site are extremely noisy.
Being In the town centre
central location It was extremely noisey!
We booked a suite but only got a room because they had over booked so was very disappointed about that
Lovely spacious room, warm, Flat screen TV staff lovely and friendly
The location, staff and size of room The rooms were too hot
Good location, room and food! Wish there was a jacuzzi there!!
the hotel the centre of the city evry thing is good
Good staff, nice hotel, fine location -
Staff were quick to respond to a problem with one room and with the problem of noisy guests Conference guests behaviour and noise
My stay was limited in time arriving late on Wednesday evening and leaving early on the Thursday. The hotel however has good leisure offering which is something I always look for in a hotel, my only regret is that time did not allow me to use the facilities.
The large bed Evening reception staff was rude and unhelpful
With one exception the hotel met our expectation (see below). The gardens were exceptional. The dining room initially offered only a 3 course meal menu which was said to be the Sunday evening policy. However, on complaining, a la carte was offered, which was satisfactory
staff very helpful.
Lovely grounds very obliging staff Food in restaurant expensive and poor quality
Spacious room and good breakfast. Ideal for overnight stop over for the city. Small bed for a double room, flaking paint on the ceiling and no air con.
we stopped two nights and there was no heating in the bedrooms so the staff had to go out and buy some heaters
the efficiency of the staff dealing with queries we had.
nice place and sirroundings staff friendly cigarette smoke coming from the room connected to ours
Nice and clean, comfortable room with friendly staff. The bar prices. Wow! Must be part-owned by Ryanair.
Convenient city centre hotel primarily a business hotel but no worse for that.
Pleasant, spacious comfortable room. Convenient for ciry centre and only a £7 taxi ride from the Sheffield arena. Nice bar area. Good breakfast.
the privacy from the staff and the location was great th waiting around at reception beiong a bit slow
Good location ad view from window.
The aircon worked (it often doesnt); the bed was comfy and the room clean and big.
The rooms are lovely, staff friendly and helpful, and it was just a really great place to stay. I couldn't sleep because people were so noisy in the corridors! The guys I was travelling with also had this problem. I think it'd be helpful if we could have called reception to get something done about this, as I felt bad for asking the people to keep it down - but it was going on from 2 to 4 in the morning! This noise happened on all 3 nights that I stayed.
All round, excellent
Smart, clean, good value, well placed

The view overlooking the peace gardens were stunning, location is perfect. Too open plan, no definative line between the 2 restaurants, the bar staff were not very accommodating and it took 15 minutes to get a drink.
Staff everywhere could not do enough for me, they looked as though they enjoyed working there. The professionalism and customer service was of a very high standard and the room was very comfortable and spotless. The location was ideal, just a short walk from the Train station and right in the heart of the city centre. No complaints
The calm welcoming atmosphere.
The beds were extremely hard.
Comfortable, friendly staff Little things - such as not enough milk provided with tea/coffee making facilities - for 2 people - in the bedrooms; insufficient toiletries provided - although we had our own
The design and materials used on the ground floor and its juxtapostion to the winter gardens are spectacular and an absolute treat to sit in the champagne bar, particularly at night time with the dramatic lighting effects.The view from my room on to the Peace Gardens was stunning. Reason for choice was availability in the price range I was willing to pay. Having stayed at this hotel I am likely to make it my first choice for future stays in Sheffield. Not enough time to enjoy the spa facilities.The room rate we had obtained was excellent but the breakfast rate was not displayed anywhere we could easily find, we had to enquire at reception. Breakfast was overpriced compared to comparable alternatives available in the city centre.
It was quiet - could not hear doors banging, people talking in corridors, people banging around upstairs - it is the first time I have experienced such soundproofing and it was most welcome.
Room next to the lift (203 I think), meant that I had a slepless night which noise throughout the night. Room service was incorrect, asked for Clun sandwich to exclude avocado paste but arrived with. Asked for the 'soft package' for the mini bar (3 cokes, pringles & kitkat), only the beverages arrived and they were charged as full on my bill at a higher price than the package offer excluding the two items. Overall attention to detail was poor.
location staff was a bit scornful
We came in the morning in a hurry to check bags and get out to the football game. Train had been a mishap in the morning, amongst other things on our time in Yorkshire (don't judge this hotel on the area, it's a really nice place.) The check-in process was great, they took our bags no problem and gave us keys for after 2 p.m. Then they called a cab for us. After two or three calls, and about 30 minutes, a cab still hadn't shown up. I was upset, but Sandeep, one of the employees of the Mercure, went out of his way to advocate for me. He personally walked me to the nearest taxi stand. When none showed up there, he called again and insisted they get someone out there in the next five minutes in no uncertain terms, taking down the registration number of the car that was supposed to show. This time the cab did arrive. If it were for his willingness to go above and beyond and make my problem, his problem, I wouldn't have made it to the game on time. It was fantastic customer service and it turned my mood around. The point is... this is one story of how professionally run this place is, in an area where not everything is very professional. Well worth your stay.
Size and comfort of rooms and the simple but quality food served in the restaurant.
The place was very clean and the rooms were large. A great place to stay and affordable.
Lovely room excellent breakfast, plenty of fresh fruit and the cooked breakfast was well cooked. Thermostat in room faulty(kept clicking all night) reported this in the morning though & reception staff said it would be attended to.
Friendly staff, brilliantly decorated, nice food. None
Check in was quick and fast.
The comfort and size of the room. Also the quality of the fittings in the large bathroom.
Friendliness of everyone we encountered Booking site had suggested it was very close to the arena - it wasn't
The size of the room was really good and the heated mirror in the bathroom was genius! I didnt find the bed too comfortable, my neck hurt the next day.
I loved our room, it was really plush with a kingsize bed, very comfortable. The only thing i didnt like was in the bathroom, they had a shower curtain which smelt stale, my sister also stayed in another room and had the same problem. They should look at changing the curtains.
room layout, cleanliness, smart appearance of hotel and overall pleasantness of staff Lack of availability of any food, including snacks after 11pm. We did no want room service. Lack of available seating in the lounge areas
Good location and extremely comfortable room. There was no minibar - nice to be able to have a bottle of water in the room without having to go through room service and particularly as its a 4 star hotel.
Room - very clean and good amenities Nothing
central location for shops theatres nightlife spot on
Radio by bedside with facility for ipod. Bed really comfortable.
The hotel and room facilities were everything you expect from a 4* luxury hotel. Very very good standard all round. We moved into 3 different rooms!!! Which on a 1 night stay was stressfull. The 1st room the tv did not work. Due to our short stay I asked if moving rooms would be quicker than getting the computerised tv fixed. So we were moved. The 2nd room was smaller but the tv did work. The room was small. The wradrobe did not open fully because of the bed. There cabinet that housed the tea/coffee kettle did not have a sockett or lghts inside, as the cabinet in the 1st room had. My husband complained as we were leaving for our night out. The night manager(?) amy, was very good she up garaded to a mazzanee room with complimentary breakfast. We had explained that having looked forward to this break for so long. With all the problems with the room and upset me and put a dampner on the whole weekend. But amy was great she had all our belongings moved for us, to the upgraded room, and arranged breakfast in bed! So thank you to amy. Her customer services was second to none!! I do hope this gets passed on.
Obviously being a new hotel the standard was high. Unfortunately the tv channels were not working but it was possible to watch a film if you wished. Room slightly small but bed very comfortable, excellent shower.
central location & plenty of bars / restaurants in the courtyard adjoining location difficult to find , sat nav telling us to go down bus lane.
Location Much too noisy (outside noise) despite being on the fifth floor and no provision for parking nearby
Clean comfortable hotel in excellent location, particularly liked small square with choice of eateries and close proximity of city hall. Nothing comes to mind
went to watch a show at city hall, which was just around corner from hotel
the quality of the hotal, he ambience and the proximity to the city centre
Being able to use leisure complex and the flexibiity of times. Also the service and buffet breakfast was excellent as were the staff.
food was excelent the method of payment i got called from my room on numerous occassions wanting clearence on my card and it wasnt just it there were about six other people what it happened to .. this did not look good on my valentines night away..
the comfort and swimming pool, it cetainly made a good start to our belated honeymoon was rather surprised on the cost of alchol
Good value and within easy reach of motorway I booked two rooms and the heating didn't work in either room, although one room had a blow heater which we used (the other had a fan!) The price charged for foood and drink in the hotel were excessive, hence we ate out in the evening.
The service from the staff throughout the hotel was very good Room adjacent to the motorway producing more noise than we would have liked
Leaving No heating in room.
the hotel was sound staff friendly the beer
pleasant staff,comfortable surroundings. good base for exploring derbyshire rather restricted table d'hote menu
The pool and breakfast Staff unfortunatley not motivated
Staff were friendly, courteous, and efficient. No
The staff were nicem friendly and helpful! The room was also very nice!
Helpful staff Getting a little tired now - it needs a lick of paint here and there to bring it back to it's previous economical designer chic look
easy access to city centre N?A
Liked the fact that there was a triple room which adults could share. The complementary products were nice too. The tea & coffee facility in the room was great as well. The bathtub could have been a little more cleaner!
staff were very welcoming and helpful
My daughter would say the breakfast, I would say it suited us exactly for what we needed, to be within walking distance of the O2 arena in comfort, Thank you
The size and cleanliness of the bedrooms The number of times needed to swipe the key card when trying to open the bedroom door
the staff were lovely,and the bar food was lovely...at 1st u thing its expensive but the quality and portion size is well worth it...i had the chicken,bacon salad...was lovely even had croutons in it...wud defo stay again...
The friendly reception staff
It was overall a good experience! Am not so sure if it will be helpful if the parking rules at NCP can be made more relaxed for the hotel guests or even as they are explained more fully to the guests on arrival! Other than that pretty good hotel!
the price of the rooms wich includes breakfast and the restaurant was very good the whole weekends entertainment which is why we stayed in shefield
The starter for the meal I had there was original and exceptionally tasty no
Told to check in at 3pm - no rooms available till 5.30pm - late fr our planned function.
Friendly,professional and good value for money The price of a bottle of water. Can get a full breakfast with toast and tea in London for less!
The complimentary wine, chocs, bath robes and slippers. Plus the gym facilities were amazing and the pool was lovely and warm. I felt very spoilt! The bar was very expensive! £13 for one glass of white wine!!!! The barman didn't tell us when we ordered, we just asked for a glass of white wine and then came the bill....Arggh felt a bit decieved: There were glasses on the wine menu cheaper than the one he offered.
the hotel staff were particularly helpful but wouldnt like to single anyone specifically. As I have only recently become a Hilton Honours member I will certainly be looking to use Hilton again with such efficient and welcoming staff. nothing particularly although the bathrooms would benefit from refurbishment with some mould and wear around the bath.
The staff were excellent, helpful and curtious. especialy a young man who dealt with us on Thursday 24th and Friday 25th July 2008. Well done. the bathroom in the room was fairly basic for such a hotel. the curtains in the room were detached from the rod which is used to close them, the safety lock on the windows was broken and the window can be fully opened.
Hotel was clean and local to town centre Room was small
The staff on reception were very friendly and helpful.The room was very comfortable and there was enough tea and coffee for more than one drink.
The beds were comfortable, rooms were clean and staff was very friendly the bathroom needed refurbishing!!!
The food was excellent and the staff were very friendly and helpful. The walls in the hotel are very thin, while staying there my partner and I could hear everything that was going on in the room next to ours, including business phone calls at 4 am.
The staff were really helpful. The room was tidy and felt like a home from home. The alarm kept going off at 9.30ish. But that can't be blamed on anyone or anything
well situated easy to find from the motorway we really enjoyed our stay and will stay again when in area
Pristine new hotel with excellent, friendly staff and very nice rooms. Also good restaurant at reasonable prices. Might I suggest a signpost from the parkway if possible? Easy to take a wrong turn here - not the hotel's fault of course.
the comfy bad and astonishing environment location
Very good value for money,very friendly staff-a very good experience
Great shower and a large comfy bed!! Nice hotel.
good quality rooms. friendly staff.
The staff were very attentive Little lighting in the bedroom
The staff were very friendly and helpful upon our arrival and during our stay. The accommodation itself was modern in design and good value for money.
Visiting the Peak District and its distance from Meadowhall Lack of direction signs from the M1 to the Hotel
Great value for money good car parking could not fault it and would certainly stay again
Good service, friendly staff, lovely function room. Slept well with blackout curtains.
Not far from the Centre of Sheffield. A good example of Victorian architecture It was hard to locate. We rang reception & receptionist was very helpfull in giving us directions to the Hotel
My husband and Son stayed here and enjoyed the lovely room inparticular such good value for money achieved by booking with booking.com
Difficult to find
The possibility to take a bite in your bar, no need to go to the resturante.
Beautiful hotel with a lot of period character that puts it above the new modern hotels. Staff didn't inform us on booking the room or checking in that there would be a disco on until 1am and it was below our bridal suite. Perhaps they weren't expecting us to want to go to sleep!
good size room free parking friendly staff breakfast very poor both service and quality
yes , its was overpriced , considering breakfast was not included, the room was not very nice, and the hotel was empty, so i dont see why they didnt upgrade us, we were the only guests...
Helpful staff. Location good for my purposes. Duvet too thin. Breakfast way overpriced, so I didn't eat there but got a much better breakfast elsewhere.
The Staff were very friendly and very helpful and the room was lovely
For price: facilities decor and equipment in the rooms I felt were better than travel lodge. Very close access to m1 jnct 30. Staff were very helpful
Parking, amenities, space, price ... no way to beat this one! No guinness on tap
I thought the staff were excellent
we arrived at the hotel after travelling a long way to be met with freindly and effiecent staff......room was clean and comfortable....service in the restaurant/lounge was help yourself but it would have been nice to see staff serving...but all in all our stay in the ibis was better than in most hotels of its type. room was cold even with heater on....
Just a 1 night stay, but I was pleasantly surprised by the size, cleanliness and comfort of the room and bed.I would stay here again and I would refer a friend. Good breakfast for extra charge. Only a shower in the room and I sometimes like to soak in a bath after a long day.
Our dog was welcome (as were we!). We had control of the heating ang and ventilation in our room. Staff were friendly and helpful. In common with many hotels, there was no daylight in the bathroom - can't be helped, I suppose but I don't like artificail light first thing in the morning.
Staff were friendly, helpful and efficient, food good, room excellent, hotel ideally placed None
Booking,checking in and use of facilities including car parking effortless Could do with Bbis sign at mcdonalds entrance because the site is so easy to get to when you know its near mcdonalds entrance
the location of the hotel close to the motorway M1 the hotel is close to a pub - resturant threre is also some fast food oulet within walking distance .
Clean and very pleasant environment.
