It's a typical Sheffield terraced house, built around 1890, on a quiet cul-de-sac off the A621 Bakewell road.
Looking for a cheap bed for the night in Sheffield?
Comfortable double room available in my house, on a quiet cul-de-sac, just off the A621, 2 miles south of Sheffield railway station, on 5 major bus routes from the city centre; busses run at least every 10 minutes during the day and early evening. It's also just 6 miles from the stunningly beautiful Peak District National Park.
It's clean and friendly if a bit scruffy!
All visitors are equal but cyclists are more equal than others!
Bed linen and towels provided. Shared bathroom and kitchen facilities. Free wi-fi in the house, Virgin Media cable tv in the front room, small television with built-in DVD player in the room plus massive DVD collection!
Smoking area in back yard.
There's a variety of local ethnic shops and eateries plus a Morrison's Local supermarket and a recently renovated Victorian pub called The Broadfield, all within a few hundred yards.
Anything else you want to know? Just ask!
Just be friendly and please don't smoke indoors or bring animals because the house isn't big enough!
Robert's house was cosy, warm and clean and located close to a major bus route into the city centre. I felt safe exploring the area at night and there was a pub that looked lovely nearby (The Broadfield) which unfortunately I didn't have time to experience (likewise some nice little cafes). I had everything I needed and the bed was really comfy. Breakfast options were available each morning and I helped myself to cups of tea! Robert was friendly and enthusiastically asked me questions about the purpose of my trip etc.
The hospitality and convenience of Robert's place meant I booked for a second night. See previous review - a great, homely place to stay.
Robert made me feel very welcome throughout my stay and I felt completely at home straightaway. He's warm, chatty and welcoming without being over the top. I had brought some dough that I needed to roll out and cut into shapes to take to the party that I'd gone up to Sheffield for, and he immediately offered all the bits and pieces I needed to do that - which I did while drinking a cup of tea and chatting away.
The place is comfy and handy with lots of buses very close by: it's easy to get both in to town and out to the Peak District from his house. And Robert leaves a great information pack in the room with lovely cafe ideas as well as maps, etc. Highly recommended!
Robert was a brilliant, friendly host (even while he was suffering from a nasty cough), and the room was perfect for our needs. Close to the best pub in the country too - The Broadfield! Very highly recommended - thanks again!
Friendly, easy, warm & welcoming. Robert is good host. I would recommend staying here. It's in a great location and a perfect no frills base for exploring Sheffield.
Your bedroom is basic but has everything you need including good WiFi, TV, clean towels and linen. I wasn't staying long but I was made to feel at home straight away. Robert is a very attentive and personable host with varied interests. I would have no hesitation in recommending a stay here. The house is located a short distance from local shops and eateries, so you won't be short of supplies. Breakfast is supplied too and Robert won't even let you was the dishes.
