My wife and I recently went for afternoon tea having emailed a table reservation with some specific requests which were acknowledged. When our food came our requests had been missed with most of the deserts containing chocolate. The server walked away immediately even when called so I ended up walking with the tray towards the kitchens to get items changed.... More

The public rooms are charming with a number of different seating areas. There is an air of faded glory in terms of the furniture. The room I was allocated did not look anything special but on closer inspection there were a number of thoughtful additions such as an ironing board and iron (useful for those attending a wedding), good quality...

Our recent stay at Holdsworth house was as always a pleasure. The staff were all charming and extremely pleasant and couldn't be more helpful or well trained. The food was wonderful - of the highest standard. The main house areas and garden were lovely - well kept and with plenty of space to find a corner to quiet corner to... More

Stayed on a Last Tango in Halifax package, upon arrival the room we were allocated smelt of smoke so we were moved to a pretty designed room at the end of the corridor upstairs, tiny but everything we needed was there. The room was very clean and the housekeeper very professional in moving us. We had included in the package... More

We arrived at this hotel to be greeted curtly by the words "checking in?". No mention of a "good evening" or the like, and no subsequent offer of luggage assistance or newspapers. Our room, priced at 145 pounds was small and dated, with difficult to use wardrobe (fixed hangers facing you, at high level) and a tiny bathroom with no... More

Both my Husband and I are totally thankful to the staff at Holdsworth House for organising the wedding of my dreams. Everything from start to finish was amazing.

I booked this 2 night stay for our 20th wedding anniversary 'treat'. We arrived and thought the hotel looked lovely from the outside. Check In was pretty seamless and then we went to our room upstairs. The corridor leading to our room looked a bit dated and we were also expecting the 'wow' factor on entering our room but were...

Probably like many others, we booked a visit to the Holdsworth House Hotel after seeing it featured on the Last Tango TV series and stayed for two nights on a Friday & Saturday to celebrate my birthday. Unfortunately, there was a wedding on for each of the two days which meant that on arrival we had difficulty parking the car... More

I booked a 'surprise' "Last Tango in Halifax" package for my wife's birthday. The car park is nice and big but it does bring you in on the 'not so pretty side' of the hotel.

Dear DonnyTripper thank you for booking your Last Tango break at Holdsworth House, we are pleased that you found our historic hotel to your liking. As you suggest with a listed building it is very hard to change the layout into something ultra modern, nor would we (and the majority of our guests) want to. We shall continue to investigate...

We visited Holdsworth House Hotel for afternoon tea as a birthday treat for my mum. The tea and cakes were tasty and very nicely displayed, and the ambience of the dining area was lovely with views over the garden (we were very lucky that it was a gorgeous sunny Spring afternoon).
