Good Hotel Guide Review
Behind the facade of an Edwardian villa, Scandi chic prevails in this multi-award-winning hotel. Owner Tiina Carr, though born in Doncaster, is from a Finnish family. ‘Immaculately presented’ bedrooms have park views, a ‘large, immensely comfortable bed’, LED mood lighting, an espresso machine, a smart TV, a monsoon rain shower and organic toiletries. Dove has an in-room copper bath and a balcony. Woodpecker, though smaller, was ‘light and pristine’, say Guide insiders, and was supplied with ‘delicious home-made brownies’. A fridge on the landing with milk for each room was ‘a neat touch’. In the Neighbourhood Kitchen, or on the patio, at lunch and dinner, small plates have a seasonal or Nordic twist. ‘The food was superb. I had a lovely chicken dish served with a delicious leek and mushroom sausage roll.’ However, ‘the highlight of the stay was breakfast’, with choices ranging from a full English with Cumberland sausage, onion rösti and thyme-roasted portobello mushroom to halloumi and sweet potato hash. ‘Surely one of the best places to stay in Sheffield.’ (Desmond and Jenny Balmer, MC)
