I chose the hotel because it had adjacent and free parking - however upon arrival the owner tried to charge extra for parking - as pre paid I declined to pay any extra charges - however the hotel debited my card again for the whole room costs (and then refunded the charge). Good location for exploring the surrounding area. Our... More

I was honestly a little trepedatious when i walked into the hotel after reading the negative reviews. I was greeted warmly by a smiley receptionist and she handed me my room key and a welcome drink of Orange juice. I was amazed at the size of the room, and how lovely it was. The furniture was all new looking and... More

Too many DSS persons are placed here. But perhaps you get what you pay for which shouldn't be a lot, in fact they should pay you. It is at the bottom end of town and far from the 'delights' of Halifax if you call the pole dancing club a 'delight'. However there are some great places and restaurants to visit;... More

Although many positive points regarding our stay here, I do feel that however reasonable the tariff a little more attention could be paid to the general upkeep. As pointed out in other reviews the carpets are badly stained and there are no mattress covets on the beds although the linen was clean and of reasonable quality. Bathroom was spacious and... More

Another return visit to The Wool Merchant. It is situation in an ideal position in Halifax Town Centre with free carpark. We like to book one of the small 'Suite's' which are quite comfortable and reasonably priced. There are numerous cereals and fruit juices to have before a full English. Reception staff are very friendly and obliging. As our family... More

The use of a Late Rooms search suggested this Hotel in Halifax and on arrival the exterior seemed nice. The Receptionist before I lowered by bag to the floor held her hand out for the unadvertised charge for the car parking. After her monotone instructions about ......... (Lost interest after a few words) the restaurant she gave us the key... More

Polite and friendly welcome at the reception desk. We asked for and got a 'quiet room', which had all the required amenities including easy access to wifi. General hotel interior and room interior look well looked after. WE enjoyed an ample self serve breakfast with a good choice of usual foods. All this at a reasonable price, well done!

I spent two nights one weekend here in September 2014. The best feature of the hotel were the bedrooms, comfortable and nicely furnished with real oak units — not Travelodge conformity. The food here is basic and what you might expect at a budget hotel. I was here for an acidity weekend and the non-breakfast food was not exciting but... More

My Husband and I decided to have a night away from the norm and booked a last minute trip to Halifax. We arrived at the hotel at the same time as another couple. Nobody was at the reception desk so we waited and waited a little longer. I then noticed a note on the desk asking to ring a number... More
