Hey guys, I'm planning a Europe tour recently and looking to visit the UK for the World Championship. Can anyone suggest me a good hotel near? I'm not familiar with the region and maybe you can tell me what to do, eat, see there? Also, I will be there after selling my property in Germany
so I can treat you a nice juicy piece of steak in a good restaurant if anyone is willing to guide me there..
I used to always stay in Cutlers, but that went bankrupt and then reopened doing things on the cheap, whilst still charging a lot of money. So I stopped going there. It was right next door to The Crucible though,
The only other hotels I've stayed in nearby are Premier Inn (Angel Street) which is very nice and reasonably priced and the Ibis, which was a bit grotty. Probably give that a miss. People can look down on Premier Inns due to the price, but they're often very decent for the price.
I know that Mercure Sheffield St Paul's Hotel and the Novotel Sheffield City Centre are quite popular and right near The Crucible. I've never stayed in either, so can't comment on quality of the hotel. I have been informed that the Mercure is where a lot of the players stay, if that is a consideration. On saying that, don't expect either of these two hotels to come cheap when The Crucible is on.
