So I spent the night at Hatter’s Hostel in Manchester and it was a really nice stay. I grabbed a bottle of wine and watched the soccer game. When Brazil was getting spanked by Germany with a 5-0 score, I decided to give the wine to one of the girls next to me and retire for the evening.
I awoke at 4:30 unable to fall back asleep with anticipation for Nicolette coming in. I managed my way down to the bus station and on my way to the airport.
Yesterday we took a drive to Torksey to see the canal and the lock. There was very little movement on the canal. Took a wander up the side of the bank to have a look. Did get to see two little boats go through the lock together. I forgot my camera so no pictures of the ...
... at home with anyone else in the room. This time it was my niece and her boyfriend and his son. The only downside for them was to suffer through a long tutorial on bike racing tactics, ethics and history according to the Gavin brothers. The main event of the day was the ride up to Holme Moss that evening. He will stay there overnight to organize the bike storage at party ...
... to make sure we didn't miss our appointment at Stonehenge. It is an enigmatic and impressive place, but best seen from inside the stone circle, which you can only do (for a price) outside normal visiting hours. Otherwise, visitors have to stand a long distance away and look at it through the fence...pretty disappointing. When I was trying to make reservations for this, it was a challenge. Because of the connection of Stonehenge with the summer ...
Today was the last day at work for both of us. Matthew has made his way to London to share time with Finch for his birthday and I took my car to Dorcas' and Chris' place where it will be looked after for the duration of the holiday.
I have to say, the journey on the train from Alfreton back to Sheffield was very enjoyable and I'll have to congratulate National Rail. That said, I was glad I did ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Kenwood Hall Hotel Sheffield
We didn't actually stay the night here, but just attended a wedding reception and wanted to warn anyone who is thinking of holding their reception here that the food is really quite poor. It was a few days after Christmas, and the meal was clearly re-heated leftovers from Christmas day. Myself and other guests struggled to identify some strange lumps on the plate, until we realised they were potatoes (not real, but the reconstituted kind that you buy frozen) which had been badly reheated, and the piece of chicken was similarly twice-cooked and dry. The vegetables were almost raw (and I am someone who likes vegetables to be al-dente) and cold. The drinks at the bar were also very expensive.
Like most reviews I can agree it is your average business hotel in lovely gardens and that is pretty much where the sheen ends.
Except the staff, all the staff I encountered were excellent.
My room was an adjoining one and the walls were so thin I could here my neighbours talk all night.
Same complaint about the noise from a wedding, but I guess I was well warned. The food was average to good but I am only commenting on room service.
If asked in conversation my summary would be 'it is just fine'.
How people this this hotel is great is beyond me. The grounds are great and the setting is nice but the hotel just has that chain feeling. My room was very small and very hot at the end of long walk way. Long queue to check in and a moody girl at the end of it. No table service in the bar you have to go to the bar and order it yourself. Compare it with other hotels in other cities and it just does not cut the mustard. It needs staff who care about their guests and it needs to drop the chain feeling and get the personal feeling.
We recently stayed in the Marriott whilst visiting our son at University. Although they couldn't allocate us a non smoking room (to be fair the website had made that clear when we booked) the only evidence that the room they gave us was a smoking room was the presence of a book of matches. We had a lakeside view, with large balcony. Had it been summer it would have been an excellent facility to have available.
Not impressed, not relaxed
Recently stayed a Saturday night at this impressive hotel, set in landscaped gardens. Hoping for a relaxing weekend away, but could hear loud music from gardens til after midnight (despite closed windows).
Then even though not requesting a wake up call, woken up before 6am Sunday morning by extremely loud music from neighbouring room.
Otherwise excellent location, excellent food.
Good place to stay
We have stayed here a couple of times. Staff accomodated us both times with adjoining rooms. Rooms are clean and comfortable and quiet. Breakfast is an excellent buffet arrangement. Only ate a meal here once, in the evening, and we were very disappointed with the standard. We will definately stay here again though.
Stayed for one night with my girlfriend in a double room and I was very impressed. Our room was attractive, clean and spacious with a nice big bed ;-)
Stayed at the Sheffield Marriott over Christmas 2003 with the family.

Beautiful surroundings. Leisure facilitie s a bit cramped but other wise very good Recomommend using
