We used to eat here a lot and enjoyed the good food and excellent service so we decided to give it another try on a Friday evening. The restaurant was empty when we went in- no tables set, no menus but there were a few people in the bar. I asked the girl on the bar if they were serving... More

In was sorry to hear that you did not enjoy your meal in our country pub. The Rock has been serving locally sourced good quality pub food in our bar for the last few months and I understand that last time you came many years ago there was a fine restaurant however when we purchased the hotel in October 2014...

Visiting family in Greetland and I had stayed at the Rock before, was not impressed in 2014, but the new owners are working hard to give it a new customer focused reputation. A nice tidy room facing the moors at the rear, nice and quiet and friendly bar staff. Good value for the price!

Pros: a very tasty breakfast, with a 'full English' and adequate range of pastries, yoghurts etc with table service. Holywell Green is set within easy reach of excellent walking country and the ultra-hippy Hebden Bridge (I recommend it for some dinky shops). The car park is large and free at the point of use. The staff are friendly (particularly the... More

Thank you for you review. We do not have any shower curtains in our rooms so I am unsure how to respond to the point about it being too short. The electric sockets that appear to be damaged in your room were not reported to us during your stay so unfortunately we were unable to get them repaired until they... More

Our rooms were clean and well furnished and the staff at The Rock Inn were friendly and helpful. It was a great venue for the wedding which was well organised and beautifully done.

We had our wedding at the rock yesterday 4/4/2015. It was amazing. The staff, especially Lawrence and Gordon were helpful, friendly and put us at ease, answering every query promptly and courteously. Paul was very accommodating, getting in specific drinks that members of the wedding party requested. Nothing was too much trouble. We filled nearly all the rooms in the... More

Booked this through an Internet booking site for work purposes. Very friendly staff. Although the room, and in fact the whole premesis, is non- smoking, the room I was in smelled like the stale cigar smoke of an old boys club. Even the was once white phone was now a yellowish brown. On a positive note they are in the... More

The Rock is defiant place to stay in the Halifax area. Our room was clean and had plenty of towels and had obviously been recently refurbished. The staff behind the bar were really nice and breakfast was very 5 star service at affordable rates

Overnight stay for business, breakfast excellent. Building clean and tidy, friendly staff,good location, free wifi Only let down by the tired bathroom, very thin walls, no hair dryer and lumpy mattress but ideal for a one night stopover and half the price of the next hotel
