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!
Pleasant and good communication throughout. Is as described in description cheap and cheerful accommodation. Wifi is superb.
For professional reasons, I've spent an entire month with Robert and it was a very good experience. I was new in UK and Robert and his neighbours are very kind persons who made me feel comfortable.
Otherwise for breakfast, I could choose over several possibilities like I would do at home. Robert kindly allowed me to have access to his commodities like the washing machine, dvd, tv, etc. and provided IDs to use his Internet connexion (which works well).
About the place, even if it's not located in the city centre directly, it's not so far and benefits from several bus lines so you will be at only 10min away from there.
To recap, I deeply recommend you to ask Robert to welcome you if you're looking for an accommodation here in Sheffield. If he can, I'm sure he will with all his kindness and sympathy, as usual!
Robert was a very good host - nice welcome to his little terraced house, and shown to our cosy room. It was nice to know we could make a drink whenever, and lovely to have a simple breakfast set out. Robert allows his guests to watch dvds from his collection, and has an info pack ready with maps and ideas for local pubs,shops,etc. The house is set on a very quiet street, a short bus ride from the city centre - and local drivers usually know where you need to alight. We had a very pleasant stay, and look forward to another few nights in the future!
