Only 10 minutes to the centre of busy Halifax with a pub serving food within walking distance. If you want to be assured of a undisturbed nights sleep in elegant surroundings then this is for...

Having stayed in lots of guest houses over the years, I have to say Woodlands Guest house in Halifax was probably the best. Why? I will explain. Firstly how many B&B's out there let you use their kitchen items such as their microwave, ironing board? Every evening they would leave a clean tray out for me with silver cutlery so... More

I recently stayed at Woodlands Guest House for one night and was made very welcome, everything you need from a B&B and very clean. Would definitely stay again but next time in the summer to see the garden!

I have stayed here now for a number of years and always been very happy - excellent food, clean rooms, good shower-rooms, friendly conversations, a house full of character, a beautiful garden - and was pleased to find on my recent visit that the same high standards are being maintained (and even an improved, free, broadband facility). Its nice to... More

I thought it was going to be very difficult to find especially such a small lane off a busy road but had no trouble at all. Adequate safe parking at the end of the lane. Tea,coffee & biscuits in the room. I needed help to get the television working as there are 2 gadgets that need using correctly but Barry... More

This is a great guest house and I would thouroughly recommend the single ensuite. Great quiet location if you want peace and quiet, firstclass breakfast. Nothing is too much trouble for Barry and Susan. Great eating place Bottomly Arms in walking distance or great Italian "22" a little further on. Hope to stay again. Trouble is all these good revies... More

Wishing to visit family in Bradford was pleasantly surprised to find such a peaceful location so nearby. Friendly welcome from Sue and Barry who helped you feel part of the family and their home. Comfortable room with tea and coffee facilities (with fresh milk), tv and free wifi. Rooms were being redecorated/repainted as I left. Beautiful gardens out the back... More

I stayed here for 4 nights and couldn't find fault with anything. The room was just what I wanted after a long day in work. Sue and Barry went out of their way to provide whatever I wanted for breakfast, nothing is too much trouble for them. I will certainly stay again whenever I am in the area.

Recently we booked a room and planned our week around it . We were told without any consultation apart from a letter that they had a better offer for a longer booking so that our booking was not going to be honored 2 days before we were booked in. .We tired to contact them to speak about it but they...

I am very sorry that this potential customer ended up with such a terrible opinion of our guesthouse. There was confusion over bookings and we ended up being double-booked. The reviewer was treated as courteously as possible. We personally drove over to her house address with a letter explaining the circumstances we were in and offering to honour the booking... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Woodlands Guest House is a charming period property set in an extensive one acre woodland garden. It is the family home of the owners and has been lovingly renovated, furnished with care and fully modernised so central heating, good hot showers, Freeview and Wi-Fi make your stay comfortable. Situated half-way between Bradford and Halifax, close to the M62, yet tucked away up a private drive, it is a quiet retreat for business travellers and a good base for exploring Pennine scenery and walks. We offer full English breakfasts using local farm eggs and other produce, or a simpler fruit and cereal based breakfast, even porridge if you ask us! There are good pubs serving evening meals just minutes away, or all the wonderful curry houses of Bradford a few miles up the road. If you stay with us, you stay as a guest in our home. Our service is friendly and we try to meet your personal needs if you let us know in advance. We are unable to accommodate pets or small children. ... more   less
