Stayed on an overnight deal which was a fantastic break. From the moment we arrived the staff were extremely friendly and nothing was too much trouble. The grounds are lovely and even in May was lovely to sit out in the gardens and just relax. The evening meal was delicious and once again all athe staff were attentive but not... More

We stayed here for two separate weddings over Christmas. The main part of the hotel is absolutely charming - very old and quaint. Our rooms on both nights were spacious and clean (very modern too). No issues with noise. Breakfast is excellent, very hearty. Restaurant is extremely good too. Staff very helpful but did seem under staffed at times.

had a fantastic time at the Holdsworth House Hotel, very beautiful setting and full of old world character reflecting the age of the building. Fantastic setting for a wedding. Loads of areas to sit down and relax with a drink!

The Holdsworth House Hotel was absolutely first rate; the staff, the room and the meals - in fact everything! From the moment we arrived we were made to feel very welcome and most valued guests. Everyone we met were extremely friendly and just lovely people. The hotel itself was a delight with a lovely garden to sit in and a... More

Dear Mark B, thank you for your review. The team here is walking around with a smile on their face as it's praise like this that makes all the hard work completely worth while (and the reason why hospitality is such a rewarding business, even 50 years since we opened!) More

We had three nights at this hotel again which we love. The building is beautiful, the staff are efficient and friendly and everywhere is clean. Good service and good food. There was a wedding going on but we didn't hear a thing, even though there was a band. Breakfasts are superb with lots of choice including nice pastries. We love... More

This is a lovely very old quaint hotel that has lots of history and is set in really nice surroundings. We booked to celebrate our 24th wedding anniversary so wanted something really special. On arrival the reception staff were attentive and very friendly. The room was not that big but was tastefully decorated with a very large king size bed.... More

Thank you sadcrad for your review. We are pleased that overall you had a mostly enjoyable stay. We are saddened to hear however that your wife did not enjoy her chicken dish. The menu is new for the season however this is no excuse for us providing a substandard meal, regardless if Head Chef Martin is away or not. We... More

A real bundle of surprises, lots of little nooks and crannies, beautiful rooms in period furniture, lovely bedrooms, spectacular gardens AND food to die for. Top quality food whether you are there for an intimate meal or a large wedding. Weddings are so well organised - nothing too much trouble - highly recommended. Only downside - and this is very...

We stayed a night here and ate at the restaurant, with an Amazon local voucher. Lovely spacious and comfortable room, in the modern part of the building at the back. Staff were very friendly and welcoming. The restaurant is lovely, several small connected panelled rooms in the old part of the house with mullioned windows. Top quality food and good... More

My wife and I stayed at the Holdsworth House Hotel recently whilst visiting friends in Halifax. It had been recommended to us by our friends and we found it to be comfortable and quiet. The staff were friendly and helpful. We shall stay again when next in Halifax.
