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

Attended a wedding at Holdsworth House, and for all its positive’s I’m afraid I had to post a negative comment. The managers really need to take note of this criticism and get their act together from what I’ve also read since eating here. But first, the positives • Amazing venue • Lovely gardens • Friendly, helpful staff • Lady who... More

We wanted to meet up with some Lancastrian friends for a meal and over-night catch-up, Holdsworth House turned out to be an excellent choice. Our rooms were available from 1pm so we were able to drop our bags off and head out to Bronteland for lunch. On our return there was help-yourself wine, and cream scones and tea to keep... More

This hotel is full of character and history, it is charming and has friendly helpful staff and there is a very relaxed atmosphere. On the practical points the beds are very comfortable, not too hard as most hotels I have stayed in. Extremely clean with everything replenished every day.

The dinner was excellent quality and made better by the service received. The venue was holding a large wedding so we were the only ones in the dining room but it felt intimate rather than awkward. Would definitely dine there again!

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
