Best Hotels in Rotherham

Rotherham Introduction

Just northeast of steely Sheffield, Rotherham is a vibrant, lively town with a rich industrial past of its own. There's a little something for everyone here, from the town's centuries-old church and unique Chantry Bridge, to a sprawling park, compelling history museum and a vibrant arts scene. Central Rotherham is brimming with big brand shops and a tantalising assortment of restaurants, while the town's surrounds are wrapped in lush green countryside and dotted with quintessentially Yorkshire villages.

Hotels in Rotherham

There's a good handful of hotels in Rotherham, with many more dotted around the surrounding suburbs. Those with generous budgets can kick back in a historic country estate or upmarket brand name hotel, complete with luxury amenities like full-service spas and indoor swimming pools. The midrange Rotherham hotels come as familiar chain name digs, many of which feature on-site bars and restaurants, as well as plush rooms kitted out with free WiFi and flat screen TVs. Those with less to spend will find several budget-friendly inns and hotels in the area, though they might find themselves a little out of the loop, location-wise.

Where to stay

Central Rotherham hotels put you within easy reach of the star attractions, including Clifton Park, Clifton Park Museum, the ancient Rotherham Minster and, just across the River Don, the AESSEAL New York Stadium – a huge draw for fans of Rotherham United. The town centre is also where you'll find Rotherham's best shopping and dining experiences. Adorned with Victorian facades and ever-bustling, it's home to everything from chain name eateries and locally run restaurants, to big brand shops, independent boutiques and indoor and outdoor markets – and, because of its modest size, you can explore it entirely on foot.

Things to see

Just a short jaunt from the town centre, Clifton Park is one of Rotherham's biggest attractions – especially in the summer. A lush and leafy oasis, it's woven with peaceful walkways and features a rock garden, a walled garden and a memorial garden, with lots of floral finery in-between. A big draw for the kids on a hot day is Water Splash, a playground that features a paddling pool and 70 water jets that spray at random. Within the park, you'll also find the Clifton Park Museum. Housed within a grand 18th-century manor house, once owned by the Walker family who ran the Rotherham Ironworks, it features an eclectic mix of exhibits covering the town's glass and metal industries, archaeology, natural science and fine art. Architecture aficionados will want to check out Rotherham Minster. A site of worship for over 1000 years, the church features Perpendicular architecture, with grand Gothic arches and a skyline-piercing spire.

How to get to Rotherham

Rotherham can easily be reached by road or rail. If you're driving in, it's accessible from the M18 at Junction 1, or from the M1 at junctions 33, 34 and 35. Bus services link the town to many of Yorkshire's major cities, including Leeds, Hull and Bradford, with services stopping at the bus interchange near Rotherham's town centre. When you're here, travel in Rotherham is a breeze. The town centre's modest size means that you can walk to most places, while plenty of bus and taxi services are available, should you want to get further afield.
