Set in lush surroundings with a nature trail, a picturesque lake and a stunning backdrop of the 19th Century hotel, you can see why it's the idyllic place to have a wedding or make a proposal.
Kenwood Hall Hotel & Spa is based in the leafy suburbs of Sheffield, South Yorkshire set within 12 acres of land complete with meeting rooms, a swimming pool and a restaurant.
Blog Up Northâs Sophie Mei Lan had the pleasure of reviewing the place with her journalist friend Rochelle.
Here's what they found:
Tucked away in the Steel City is this real gem. The beauty of this place is on the outside.
We went for a walk in the grounds, stumbling across a wedding and beautiful scenery.
As you walk on the red carpet into reception, the hotel has a luxurious feel with velvet cladded chairs and coffee tables.
We stayed in a twin executive room with a garden view. The room was clean and cosy but was dated in places.
We then made our way up to the spa which has recently undergone a makeover.
The changing rooms are nice and snug, you feel as if you're in a wooden chalet.
First up we had a play in the gym on some of the machines. The gym is split into two parts, one part is overlooking the swimming pool and the other is parallel to the pool.
The swimming pool is compact but stunning with large glass windows revealing the lush grounds, and most importantly for me, the water was warm rather than the dreaded cold plunge I usually face at hotel pools. There is also a heated jacuzzi next to the pool.
We then made our way to the shower before entering the steam room. The steam room has a crystal ornament which glows soft colours inside the room. There is also a sauna opposite.
After a quick shower and change, we were hungry and had made a reservation in the hotel restaurant (we had been gifted a dinner, bed and breakfast package).
The room had been turned around from being a wedding venue into a classic restaurant, complete with a grand piano.
With the package you can pick any starter, main and dessert. There are an array of options even for us both, two vegetarians.
To start with we decided to share hummus and pitta and Vegetable Tempura.
The hummus was yummy but the real stand-out dish was the Tempura. It was light, crispy and totally delicious accompanied with a sweet chilli dipping sauce. It was Rochelle's first time eating Tempura and it's fair to say we have a new Tempura fan.
Next up Rochelle had the tortellini pasta and I went for the mushroom risotto but I had food envy of Rochelle's dish.
We finished with a panacotta and a chocolate cheesecake. With hearty portions, we were nicely full by the end.
The waiter who served us couldn't do enough for us.
After a lovely afternoon and evening we returned to our room to watch some trash TV - a perfect way to end a girly day.
We rose early on the Sunday so we could go to the spa before breakfast.
After, a quick workout, swim and steam, we were ready to tackle the buffet breakfast.
We had hit the peak time so the restaurant was packed and we were seated in the foyer-cum-bar area, which is super comfy and the perfect place for meetings.
We ordered some vegetarian sausages, whilst we filled our plates with a Full English (minus the meat as we're veggies).
There is also a range of continental breakfast options and all-you-can-drink coffee machine.
I'm glad we had already been to the spa as we filled ourselves up nicely and wouldn't have felt like swimming post such indulgence.
Sadly it was time to check out. But once we had, we met up with some friends in the coffee area.
It was a perfectly comfortable spa break and if you're visiting Sheffield, we would definitely recommend a visit. Or if you live in Sheffield, it's a great place to take advantage of the beautiful grounds, spa and bar area.
