All bedrooms in the recently opened Parker Wing feature Juliet balconies and the Deluxe rooms also benefit from lake views. Delicious food is served in the hotel restaurant which has been awarded two AA Rosettes for its high standard of cuisine.
The hotel building has an interesting history and it retains many of its beautiful period architectural features - legend has it that Mary Queen of Scots stayed here whilst in the custody of the Earl of Shrewsbury. It occupies three sides of a large square which once formed a paved courtyard, closed off by palisades to the front. The ivy covered pillars of the central gateway are still evident at the end of the lawn.

Sheffield has also been labelled the National City of Sport and it features Europe's largest ice complex and all season ski resort.

Legend has it that the ill-fated Mary Queen of Scots stayed here at Whitley Hall while she was in the custody of the Earl of Shrewsbury at Sheffield Castle. Rooms in the west wing are those she is said to have occupied. Similar folklore tells of a secret passage that linked Whitley Hall with Ecclesfield Church, which is situated approximately half a mile away across the fields. The present church building can be traced back as far as the 15th century, although a priory was built on or near the site around 1076. The village of Ecclesfield is mentioned in the Domesday Book. The grave of Lord Nelson's chaplain is to be found in the churchyard. The village's original stocks disappeared overnight around 1640 but replica ones were placed near their original site in the 1970's.
