Stayed one night on Travelzoo offer. Lovely relaxing hotel and very welcoming staff on reception. Dinner could not be faulted and was enjoyed immensely by all. Breakfast was good but not special. The rooms are comfortable, bathrooms okay and we all enjoyed a good nights sleep

We give cookie-cutter characterless modern hotels a miss whenever possible, and having seen this lovely Jacobean manor house on TV – it’s where Celia and Alan got married in Last Tango in Halifax – Iooked forward to staying there. However, our stay was not without disappointments, and we left with mixed feelings. First, the good points. The mellow building stands... More

Dear Tourmaline2, thank you for choosing to stay at Holdsworth House. We are pleased that you enjoyed the hotel’s history and overall had a good stay.

This hotel is tucked away in the northern suburbs of Halifax. It is a very old timber-framed and stone house, beautifully maintained, that rambles in all directions, with bars and eating areas spread over two floors. There is also a large hall suitable for wedding receptions. Bedrooms are well-appointed and some at least are of reasonable size. The food is... More
