    Please be aware the police use this regularly for training police dogs, so probably take a bit more interest in it than some other derelict buildings, it's a pity because I bet it's a very interesting place...

    Bump, Me and Nick had no luck with this one. You could crack it if you can get past the shutters around the back.

    Had a look a few times myself.

    I think I know how, but think best to not say here.

    If you're local you might as well chance it, it's 50/50 that someone is watching.

    Saw the shutters open yesterday - big van going either in or out. Wasn't the type that carries police dogs, so who knows?

    I know this is an old thread but if anyone wants to contact the owner, I have contact details for them so email me if you're wanting to try to get a permission visit. I know it's cheating but hey ho haha

    Here is some shizz about the plans theyre making to do it up. it includes grosvenor obviously, but a lot of other places nearby. don't know for def what theyre doing though. also, another place you could try for a permission visit is Hammerson, the actual contractors.
    the details i stated above are actually for the hotel itself, so im not sure if anyone would answer....

    but here you go..

    Re: Grosvenor Hotel - Sheffield S1

    Hi,I am the former general manager of the Grosvenor House Hotel. I was the one that locked it for the last time when it closed.

    I can tell you that there is absolutely nothing left in the building, all services were removed and bathrooms toilets etc were concreted to prevent pest infestations.

    All equipment and fittings were removed and sold prior to closure.

    It is currently rented to Sheffield police as a police dog training unit by Hammersons who are the owners of the "building" Sheffield City Council owns the land

    Hope this helps
