News: Recruitment underway at new Rotherham hotel


Recruitment is underway at a new 150 bedroom hotel being built in Rotherham that is due to open in June 2023.

Rothbiz reported in 2021 that Essex-based developer, Stapleford Ventures Ltd, had secured planning permission for a six storey, 150 bedroom hotel on land off Highfield Spring and Poplar Way where the Waverley development meets the Morrisons roundabout at Catcliffe.

Leading independent hotel management company, RBH Hospitality Management, has been appointed by Stapleford Ventures Ltd to operate the new Courtyard by Marriott Sheffield.

The firm is now recruiting for a range of hospitality roles which currently include Assistant Restaurant Manager, Restaurant Shift Leader, Sous Chef, Night Manager and Front Office Shift Leader. More information can be found on the management company's website.

The new-build property will include a brasserie restaurant (the Aspen Restaurant & Bar), as well as a fitness centre and meeting facilities. It will occupy a prominent position at the entrance roundabout to the Waverley development, and will provide an important community asset for use by residents, and businesses at the adjacent Advanced Manufacturing Park (AMP).

Already in place are Louise O'Reilly as General Manager, Joanne Cocking as Deputy General Manager and Megan Coakley as Director of Sales.

Louise said: “I am excited to open the first Marriott-branded hotel in Sheffield. The operational strategy is crucial for a successful launch, and we will be running a dedicated recruitment campaign to find the right team of talented and passionate hospitality professionals, which will offer 38 full-time jobs in the local market. Given our proximity to the Advanced Manufacturing Park (AMP), which is located right across the road, this appointment also offers many opportunities for me to collaborate with local businesses.”

David Hart, RBH’s CEO added: “Louise’s appointment is a key milestone in the opening journey. She is the perfect strategic fit for this property and has already started the process of developing a fantastic local team. We are delighted to be expanding the RBH portfolio with a quality branded hotel into the city of Sheffield. Under Louise’s experienced hand, the hotel will play an active part in promoting Sheffield as a tourist and business destination.”

Construction has been swift with RTS Construction working on site.

So it's being built in Sheffield then?

A condition of planning should have been that it had to be called Marriott Rotherham, or at the very least Marriott Rotherham/Sheffield.

Things that are in Rotherham should named as being in Rotherham.

It would only be a 3 storey construction if it was in Rotherham!Joking apart council should make part of planning conditions,that development states it's Rotherham.

SHAMEFUL describing this as Sheffield (the company has obviously done this for some snobbery reason) when it knows full well it’s in Rotherham. Is there any other place in the UK where businesses describe their operations as being in a neighbouring town (curious to know…?)

You can bet that they only allow paying customers to stay there if they say it's in Sheffield.

It is common place for Hotels to include the nearest City/Landmark in their name as it attracts a wider pool of guests looking to stay in that area.

“Louise” and “David” cited here must both be a bit thick… as neither know that the hotel is in Rotherham, not Sheffield. I wouldn’t trust them to sit the right way on the lavatory…

Yeah,but that's when the city in question is worth this case Sheffield most definitely isn't,joke of a city when compared to virtually all others,with a deluded population that think they somehow live in a great place!

I've contacted the Head of Planning (Officer) and the Chair of the Planning Committee (Councillor) to express my dismay at a positive story for Rotherham being badged as Sheffield.

If others are interested I shall feed back their replies.

It will be subservient gobbleydook

Surely if you advertise something falsely (in this case claiming an hotel is in Sheffield,when it isn't)this is false advertising?

That'd be great John. I'd be very interested to hear their replies.

Can I suggest that when the hotel's website is up and running that we all leave a comment on it to the fact that it is actually in Rotherham and not in Sheffield?

The thing is it seems to me like whenever there’s something positive happening it gets labeled Sheffield, yet all the bad stuff it’s Rotherham!
It’s long after time overpaid councilors stood up for what’s left of this once great town!

Following strident criticism of the naming of this hotel the management team has reached a compromise which it hopes will address the controversy. The name of the hotel will now be shared. It will be known as The Courtyard by Marriott Sheffield unless there develops a problem with the cladding in which case it will be the Courtyard by Marriott Rotherham. Simples

The website is, I believe, up and running. From the blurb on there you wouldnt think that Rotherham exists. It's Sheffield, Sheffield that. It's not yet open and the hotel has already disassociated itself from Rotherham.

Apparently it going to house asylum seekers it going to have Rotherham in name!

If so, the asylum seekers will probably have greater command of the English language than you

Why has work apparently stopped on it?

I would love to know the answer to that too?
