Mercure Sheffield St Paul's Hotel
Travel Blogs from Sheffield
Up for a 9am departure, spent most of the day on the bus dropping people off at Picton for the ferry to Wellington and collecting people coming south. I stayed at the pub while the driver did that, then dropped at a $2 wine teasing of 3 wines and a desert wine. Travelled all the way to tonight's accommodation at Kaiteri Lodge, Kaiteriteri and my first dorm room. After being on the bus ...
So, here we are Manchester airport. Wales have lost to England in the rugby and as we watch the sun go down over terminal 3, the board says our BA flight to London Heathrow is delayed by 15mins.Then 30 mins. Then 50 mins. So worried about catching connecting ...
... Potager Partageon. January is now closing and my new thinking is turning towards vegetables for our Potager and the Potager Partageon.There are some pretty cool bargains on line at the moment for seeds etc so may buy here rather than France. Thinking of France, Hollande seems to be making himself look even more ridiculous than either Clegg or Cameron or indeed adenoid Ed can manage. Perhaps career politicians do lack a sound dose of reality and a measure of humanity? ...
Today was a beautiful day and always will be, it'll be Rob and Sarah's anniversary.
They had a magical wedding ceremony at Saint Peter and Saint Paul Parish of Oxton. We travelled by Rolls Royce to the Church and I was very proud to follow Sarah down the aisle.
We celebrated that afternoon and evening at Norwood Park, Southwell which was absolutely brilliant. We had a wonderful day and evening, congratultations and thank you Rob and ...
... out to Hathersage, where she bought me my Christmas present sleeping mat, an impressive thing that packs up to the size of an instant coffee jar and weighs about half a kilo. Late in the week I went for a walk around the Burbage Valley, gawking at its dozens of huge boulders, many climbing crags and the remnants of Carl Wark, an Iron Age fort. I had a brief go at traversing a boulder that was riddled with large indents made by bullets fired during WW2 ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Mercure Sheffield St Paul's Hotel
I stayed at the Mecure St Paul's Hotel for one night on Sunday 17th June. I usually stay at the Novotel when visiting Sheffield on business, but thought I would give this hotel a go, as I have always been impressed when walking past it, especially by the restaurant and bar that runs down one side of the Winter Gardens.
This was my first time staying in the St Paul's and it is a great hotel benefiting from being quite new. The rooms are spacious and minimalist and comfortable. Unusually the windows don't open but the ventilation system was good.
Great value weekend
I got a decent rate on Laterooms which meant this worked out as a very good value weekend.
Check in and out were speedy and smooth; I was sharing a twin room and splitting the bill was also no problem.
The room was clean, comfortable and spacious.
The lobby/terrace area which faces onto the Winter Gardens is a very pleasant place for a drink, particularly when the sun is shining.
The pool complex is fantastic and very welcome after a night on the sauce.
The only criticism was the slighty ropy espresso I was served in the bar, but given what Sheffield hotels used to be like that's a very, very minor criticism.
Patti Smith was playing Sheffield, so we decided as a treat to stay in a good hotel after the concert; it wasn't very rock'n'roll, but as one gets older it seems to make more sense...
Fab hotel staff excellent.
we were at the hotel for a hen weekend ,there were 10 of us altogether and we had a great time. upon arrivall we were greated by the hotel manger who colndnt do enough for us after checking in and finding our rooms ,which were very comfortable loved the make-up mirror in the bathroom nice touch.we had a champagne and chocolate fountain reception lovely followed by some beauty treatments.The breakfast was plentyfull and nothing seemed to much trouble alough there didnt seem to be enough staff for the number of guest dinning.all in all a fantastic hotel would reccomend you give in a try.
My partner and I stayed at this hotel at the beginning of May and chose it because of its location. (We had tickets to the snooker final at the Crucible and it is located just round the corner!)
We stayed at this Hotel for 3 nights over a weekend as a group of 10 couples. I had noticed the mixed reviews and had some reservations about what the Hotel would be like.
We stayed during the first weekend of the snooker at the Crucible. Lots of the players were in and around the hotel which was great and gave it lots of atmosphere. The hotel has just been taken over by Mercure and judging from previous reports about the service, seem to have worked miracles in a short space of time. The service we experienced was excellent, the rooms clean. The only downsides were the food on the Saturday night was slightly colder than we would have liked and had to be reheated, and when we returned to the room on Saturday at 4 pm housekeeping was still cleaning it. Having said that, we would stay there again and would recommend it for either business or leisure.
Excellent City Centre Hotel
Booked this hotel before reading reviews. Based on the bad reviews nearly cancelled the booking. However glad we didn't. The hotel, staff and facilities were first class. We received a friendly welcome by reception, our room on the first floor was first class, very clean and spacious with LCD TV, large bathroom with separate walk in shower. Views over Millenium Square were a bonus. The location could not be better with the shops and theatres all within easy walking distance. Overall would recommend this Hotel to both Leisure and Business travellers without hesitation.
