I stayed over with my Mum as we were visiting a sick relative in a residential home and needed somewhere nearby and cheap to stay. Des is a great guy- full of interesting chat and a character and above no fake plasticy smiles from him. We used it for a bed to sleep in and a place to eat a...

I stayed here for 1 night only as I need something quickly and cheap. I was due to stay up to a week, but after the 1st night I left. While the owner was accommodating when booking the room and in welcoming me in, overall the hotel wasn't. The room I stayed in was basic, with a hand basin, and...

I stay at the hotel back in 2006 for a period of 2 weeks as needed somewhere to stay inbetween moving houses. Des was fantastic every morning breakfast was made for me and i joined him in his kitchen for a nice chat each morning. The rooms were basic but thats what you pay for and the conversations with Des...

No problem at all when we telephoned to say we'd be an hour and a half later than intended. We were greeted with a warm welcome and offered tea. It's a beautiful Victorian house in a quiet leafy part of Sheffield. Value for money is outstanding and a breakfast that sets you up for the day. Would certainly return.

Having visited Sheffield to watch the snooker, myself and partner booked into Thornsett House just 10 minutes away from the city centre. Upon arrival I was greeted by the owner Des, a person of charm and character. His witty welcoming was what we needed after a long journey, none of the fake smiles and cardboard welcoming which you usually recieve...

As a regular visitor of Sheffield, who wants a friendly, comforting place to stay for a few days in a Foreign Country I am charmed by Thornsett House and its landlord Des and his help Kitty. The bus 22, which has a stop right next to Thornsett House, will take you straight into the Middle of Sheffield (buy a ticket...

I stayed 2 nights and was very satisfied. Des the landlord was chatty and helpful, cooked a lovely breakfast and took me to the station which was great. The house is currently being renovated so naturally it is in a bit of a builder's mess. It wont appeal to those who prefer hotels, but if you can accept this, it...

Was looking for a reasonably cheap night's stay in Sheffield and found Thornsett House on the internet. Thought it just looked a little old-fashioned from the pictures on the website so went ahead and booked. When I arrived, I was greeted by Yorkshire's answer to Rab C Nesbit. I was immediately struck by the overwhelming fusty smell which wafted out...

I have never been inside a more horrible building in my life. I am not exaggerating this statement for effect, I am being absolutely 100 percent totally and utterly deadly serious. During my life I have for one reason and another visited morgues, abandoned buildings, a sewage works and a coal pit. Each and every one was cleaner, tidier and...
