I stayed at the hotel for one night on a business trip but I wish I could have stayed for more. The room was modern and well equipped. I didn't want to get out of the comfortable bed. I had such a great nights sleep. The breakfast was well cooked and extremely tasty, with a great selection to choose from.... More

Stayed here before. Plenty of room and cracking service from management and staff. Private parking in own car park on first come basis but no problems when we stayed. The hotel is a little 70's but clean and comfortable with good night time security. A good range of meals on offer and a superb breakfast to start your day. Halifax... More

I recently stayed at the White Swan on a Friday and Saturday night - couldn't fault the hotel - the staff were very friendly and I was given a nicely appointed and spacious room (222) fronting on to the street. As the hotel is centrally located I was expecting a certain amount of street noise - on the Friday night... More

I have been to this hotel twice while on business to Copley. Very friendly, good rooms and comfortable. Breakfast is excellent with lots of options and again a friendly service. They also have off street parking which saves on the overpriced parking charges

An older hotel in the centre of Halifax, bit of a rabbit warren as owners try to keep up to date with an ageing building. The lift in particular has its character.

We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights in a room on the 2nd floor at the back of the building. We mainly used the lift going up to our room as there were quite a few stairs. We were very happy with the room, well stocked tea & coffee etc which was replaced each day. The bathroom was modern... More

We visited Halifax for a family wedding, the majority of us stayed at the White Swan hotel in Halifax town centre. We had a great weekend and were very well looked after.

Stayed here on business a couple of times recently, tbh when I can't get in the premier inn. Old school hotel with a certain charm, friendly staff and restaurant ok, particularly the italian downstairs. Does the job pretty well.
