Copthorne Hotel Sheffield4.0 out of 5.0

We stayed here to attend a family party nearby so only stayed overnight. The receptionist, who called us 'my love 'rather too many times for our liking (and we are northerners!) told us she had put us on the fifth floor as though doing us a favour when in retrospect we realised she was palming off a disabled room that noone else wanted. As we are able bodied the bathroom was not really suitable for us to use. The shower was half filled with a folding chair device leaving little space. What should have been a wet room area had an unpleasant flimsy shower curtain which had a filthy hem. Some of the furniture in the room was quite shabby and the room was poorly lit - the lamps had black shades. The black lampshade theme continued into the dining room where our table at breakfast was in darkness.
Room was ok and fairly standard 4* accommodation - nothing special but nothing to complain about. Wi-fi didn’t work in room on any laptop or device - poor in this day and age! Hotels generally rip you off for breakfast but £12.95 for a poor choice (not great quality), an extra £2.50 for porridge and then another extra £2.50 for an Americano - not great value! Ok for a quick stopover (if the price is right)but breakfast elsewhere!
a 2 night stay in club room on 6th floor overlooking football stadium car park. Good check in experience, and being a Monday meant my room was available late morning. Car parking was excellent and really I couldn't have got closer to entrance. Room standard layout not large, club facilities of bathrobes, free wifi, and mini bar etc. Air con worked well, but would have wanted fresh air option as well. Breakfast was fine, restaurant not overly busy, staff very good, food fine but pretty standard, and whilst eggs (apart from scrambled) would have been cooked to order, there was never anyone to do so - a bit of a miss really. What I came away with considerable irritation was the bathroom. It doesn't seem old, and therefore it can't be described as dated, but really it's a triumph of corporate design over satisfactory functionality. Haven't their designers, or the management ever actually used their bathroom? A dingy beige lightweight nylon shower curtain (disconcertingly discoloured green at the bottom - yuck) from a track that is inside the bath side line, meaning the curtain clings to you, double yuck (who did it cling to last?) - a heavier curtain, a curved curtain rail that takes the curtain out from the bath, whilst still being in the bath - this isn't rocket science, travel inns sorted this years ago - a cheap refit suggestion. I haven't finished with the shower yet - a fixed head shower is not uncommon, but i would prefer a handheld option. But the final straw was the narrowness of the bath, when having a shower. The bath is small, its short and narrow - so really impossible to have a satisfying bath - but the impact on showering is ludicrous. The base of the bath - where you stand under the fixed head shower (so you can't move anyway else), with the clinging dirty nylon curtain (and did I mention the large grab handle protruding into the bath) - the base of the bath is so narrow, that my size 10 feet couldn't actually fit flat on the bottom of the bath, without my toes being painfully forced curled upwards and backwards, such that I couldn't turn around. Absolute nonsense. Apart from the nasty curtain I don't suggest this is current management's domain, but those designers have really let you down.
Visited the Copthorne on a Groupon voucher I know it sounds cheep but the food was excellent. The voucher was for fish and chips i can say that the rest of the food others ordered around us looked very nice. Well worth a visit.
I came here on business, initially attracted by the cheap price for the night. I'm very glad I stayed here. The lady who checked me in on reception was incredibly friendly and helpful, making sure I had everything I needed before I was on my way to my (very large) room. The room was very nice, with a desk and large, comfortable bed. The only downside was I could hear every word of all of the conversations coming from the corridor which wasn't ideal but thankfully nobody was loud in the night so it wasn't an issue. Breakfast was good, although I only had some muesli and pastries so can't vouch for the cooked selection. Overall this was an excellent hotel, which provided me with a great night's sleep, access to lots of restaurant choice nearby and I even parked my car there all day whilst I attended an event in town which I was grateful for. Definitely recommend a stay here :)
Fabulous stay at the Copthorne Hotel. Katie on reception is lovely and made us feel so welcome! She went the extra mile to make our trip special! Spacious modern rooms and lovely bar area! Great breakfast, staff were helpful! Added bonus of free onsite parking! We will definitely be returning!
Myself and my partner stayed here last night (Sunday 29th Oct) - we booked it last minute in the morning and were surprised with the great value price. Upon our arrival we spoke with lady named Vicky on reception who checked us in. She was absolutely fab, really helpful, cheery and couldn't do enough for us. We'd actually stayed here two years before and Vicky mentioned that she remembered us due to my unusual surname which was nice. As we were celebrating a special occasion she arranged for us to have some free drinks at the hotel bar, a lovely touch! The hotel room itself was faultless, clean, spacious and the bed is super comfy. The location, although not the most central, is still great - we got a taxi into the centre and it cost £4. We could have walked it really (but not in my heels!). I would without doubt stay here again and it would be my first choice of hotel when in Sheffield.
This seems to be more of an exec/business hotel, rather than a tourist one. It all seemed slightly impersonal though. Rooms are very brown (to the point of being too dark) but are well fitted/kitted out. Apart from being next door to SUFC, the hotel is not really close to anywhere so the location won't suit everyone. Free parking is a bonus though. Check in was swift and efficient. We were offered breakfast - £8.95 pp if ordered by midnight, but £11.95 if paid for on the day. This was expensive, so we went to the Harland Cafe which was 5 min walk away - turn right out of the hotel, and then third on the left up John Street. Can highly recommend. There are plenty of restaurants if you walk to London Road - over the road and up the hill. All in all, hotel did the job. We paid about £70 a night. It's fine if you want a 4* star hotel and have a car, but may be a bit out of the way if you're travelling on foot.
Not stayed here but used for business events and eaten a few times both evening and lunch times. The rooms for hire are all very good. Food is very good. Had quite a few business hot buffet lunches here and they were really great with plenty of choice and lots of fresh cooked food. Great service from staff too. I would definitely recommend using this venue for business events or for eating for pleasure in their restaurant.
Just wanted to say a massive thank you to all the staff at the Copthorne in Sheffield. We had a wedding celebration at Sheffield United on Saturday night and me and a few of the party guests book some rooms and helped up with setting up a discount code. From start to finish the service was excellent communication was great and we were upgraded and received a bottle of champagne in the room. A massive thanks to Michael he is an absolute gem and made us feel so special. Really happy and would recommend this hotel :) thanks xx
