Good Hotel Guide Review

‘A beacon of how to do things properly: metropolitan style with Yorkshire substance.’ Generous praise from a regular reader this year for this ‘smart, sophisticated’ hotel on the edge of Sheffield’s student quarter. The blend of warm northern hospitality and Scandinavian pared-back style is courtesy of owner Tiina Carr, born in nearby Doncaster but with a Finnish family. The ‘immaculately presented, stylishly furnished’ bedrooms, all white, greys, earth tones and occasional splashes of colour, might have an in-room copper slipper bath, contemporary four-poster or fireplace (with candle, of course). All have a wooden floor, rugs, robes, a Nespresso machine, ‘an exceptional range of tea and coffee’. ‘Luxurious’ bathrooms provide a ‘fantastic’ walk-in monsoon shower and organic toiletries. In the ‘outstanding’ bistro-style restaurant, with central kitchen, Leslie Buddington’s ‘superb’ modern British dishes with a Nordic twist include crispy squid with garlic aïoli; halloumi fritters, spring onion jam, herb pesto. An ‘interesting and varied breakfast’ includes ‘some of the best grilled bacon I’ve ever tasted, even the baked beans had a bespoke quality’. (Mike Craddock, and others)

Comments about Brocco on the Park

An excellent little hotel. Our room was bright and pristine. Staff are most welcoming. Highly recommended. - Desmond and Jenny Balmer - January 2020
Even baked beans have a bespoke quality at this wonderful hotel. Everything about this smart, sophisticated place impressed. My bedroom was immaculately presented and stylish. The food was superb. - Mike Craddock - August 2018
Despite its roadside location Brocco is perfectly pitched for a short drive to the Peak District, and a stone's throw away from the Botanical Gardens. On a busy Saturday afternoon we were greeted with effortless charm. Our room, the snug lounge and restaurant all have flair and style. The team offers warmth and professionalism. The food was enjoyable- perhaps a hit and miss with deserts - M and T Sachak-Patwa - February 2018
Two very nice visits. My rooms were spacious, with comfortable, good-sized bed and crisp sheets, but could have been softened by some art on the walls. In Chiff Chaff I woke to the delightful sound of birds. The surrounding area is worth a visit. - Robert Sandham - May 2017
