Good Hotel Guide Review

‘Effortless charm and warmth’ personify Tiina Carr’s ‘vibrant’ hotel, a ‘stone’s throw’ from the Botanical Gardens. Sheffield-inflected hygge, the Scandinavian holistic concept of cosiness, seeps through the Finnish-born owner’s elegant parkside Edwardian house, from the ‘warm, professional’ staff to the ‘Scandi-chic’ style. Throughout, muted hues, wooden floors and huge windows; a subtle bird theme evokes Picasso, said to have stayed in the building while attending a peace conference. Bedrooms might have a copper bath, or an Arne Jacobsen bubble chair suspended from the ceiling. Each has a ‘comfortable’ bed, rich lambswool blankets, a little baked treat, an espresso machine and comfy robes. ‘Though roadside, I slept soundly.’ Down in the restaurant, visitors in 2018 particularly enjoyed chef Leslie Buddington’s ‘“small plates concept” of Nordic-style dishes, which were delivered with great skill’. The vegetarian celeriac steak with pickled apple ‘satisfied even the die-hard carnivore’. Breakfast on banana-coconut pancakes, ‘beautifully grilled’ bacon. A redeveloped terrace opened in the summer. (M and T Sachak-Patwa, Robert Sandham)

Guest comments

'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
