We attended the wedding of Mr & Mrs Adams yesterday. What a brilliant experience we had. Sunny and his team were super efficient and nothing at all was too much trouble especially when we were so demanding! Thanks to all the staff for looking after us you are truly brilliant. The venue for its age was spotlessly clean, the food... More

Thank you to all the team at HH. We had an absolutely wonderful day for our wedding and were thoroughly looked after by all staff. They accommodated our needs and even allowed our dog Lola to be a part of our special day. Thanks again

Staff unhelpful, General Manager full of himself, other parties putting drinks on my room, drinks I hadn't had, there was no security checks these people were staying in the room.

Holdsworth House proved to be an excellent place for a holiday in West Yorkshire. Like previous reviewers the staff are one of the highlights of HH together with the food and ambiance which we enjoyed tremendously. Our room was very comfortable indeed with a velux window that opened to give some breeze in the hot weather. The bathroom was clean... More

On noticing that the AA had awarded this hotel 4 stars, I had high expectations that my business trip would be comfortable in the evenings, following long days in the office, sadly this hotel has done nothing but emphasise how wrong and inconsistent the rating system can be. I will state from the outset that the staff in his hotel... More

My friend treated me to a light lunch today and everything was delightful. The grounds are beautifully planted and set off by well manicured box tree topiary. The building, dating from the 1600's Jacobean era is stunning to look at from the outside and packed with interesting features and furniture on the inside, most of the furniture in the public...

Room was fine nice and airy not very spacious and I upgraded. Bathroom disappointing- rather small and basic. Restaurant was rather nice and the food well executed. The bar closed early and no concessions to residents which surprised me. The outdoor seating pre dinner drinks is lovely and recommended.

We stayed at Holdsworth House for 2 nights in July for a family wedding. We stayed in a double room, the rooms are relatively small but well appointed and nicely furnished. Our bed, although very high was extremely comfy and thanks to that and the black out blinds we slept really well. Despite the high temperatures the room remained cool... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Halifax's only four-star hotel is now listed in the 2013 Michelin Guide along with the country's elite hotels & restaurants. Holdsworth House is a beautiful Jacobean manor built in 1633, which has been owned and run by the Pearson family for 50 years. The manor stands in stunning, secluded gardens and is just three miles north of Halifax. It feels a world apart from the bustle of everyday life and is a perfect choice for accommodation, weddings and conferences. In this beautiful old house you'll find open fires, cosy lounges, fine antiques and tapestries that create a sense of history and comfort. The 39 charming bedrooms are all ensuite and have all been individually furnished. Dinner is served by candlelight in the 17th Century, oak-paneled 2 AA Rosette-winning restaurant whilst the Long Bar has a simpler brasserie style menu. ... more   less
