It simply doesn't get better than this if you are looking for a country house hotel in West Yorkshire. Some parts apparently date back to the 13th century. This place is full of superlatives. The rooms take you back centuries. The lounge bar with its open fire is very welcoming but it's the bar manager who makes it the place... More

This was our second visit to Holdsworth House, our first was via a Groupon deal, we enjoyed it so much we booked our return directly with the hotel. Whilst the hotel is situated close to built up areas you are not able to tell, there is a tranquil ambiance both in the grounds and in the hotel itself. We booked... More

We stayed for 1 night. We had a suite and did the Last tango deal which although pricey was worth every penny. The food was beautifully presented and we were really touched that the bar tender gave us our cocktails on a complimentary basis as he'd never made them before being new. 10/10 to him. He made lovely cocktails and... More

Thank you lilsuz for staying at Holdsworth House and for your feedback. We take every comment seriously and although you had a wonderful stay we will look into the heating issue. We don't in fact have such a policy that you were told since the rooms are linked to the main heating system which is always on in cold spells,... More

We had our wedding at Holdsworth House at the end of December. We had to arrange it all from 6,000 miles away, as we live abroad, but they made it very easy for us. All the way through the process, they were very quick to respond and were very accommodating in respect of our requests. The only minor suggestion for... More

We travelled all the way from Southampton to Halifax for the funeral of a friend and were delighted to find this gem of a hotel, welcoming dogs within easy reach. The hotel is a lovely old stone building set in its own grounds with formal gardens. The interior is all exposed beams, easy chairs and open fires. The staff could... More

We stayed at Holdsworth House last weekend as a treat for my husband's birthday, which was an offer I'd bought via Travelzoo. It's a gorgeous, quirky and olde worlde place, which is just the kind of place I like - really unique! It's over 300 years old and has lots of historical features, carved wooden doors, period windows, slightly uneven... More

Visited this hotel at the end of December for my sister's wedding and I had not heard anything about the hotel therefore I had no idea what to expect. For some reason the hotel seems like it is nestled somewhere in the countryside however it actually is more like on the outskirts of the city centre in a suburb. But... More

Thank you Stuart B for reviewing the hotel. We are glad you discovered the hotel, had a good stay and trust your sister had a wonderful wedding at our historic manor. We love to describe it as such - as you point out it's somewhere easy to get to but feels like a million miles away. It sounds like the... More

Fabulous cosy hotel with equally warm and welcoming staff providing great service and the perfect atmosphere for us. A wonderful place in winter with roaring fires, superb breakfast and evening meals. Would love to visit in the summer to enjoy that gorgeous garden with cocktails!

First time at this beautiful old hotel and what a lovely place to stay on 2 cold wintry nights. Greeted with friendly, welcoming smile and a complimentary glass of wine, nice touch. My room was a good size, warm, very clean and had all the modern touches needed, despite the period feel. The hotel is quirky, old and beautiful to... More
