We visited for afternoon tea and were not disappointed. Staff were lovely, the premises built in the 1600's were quaint and fascinating with beautiful gardens. The food was a varied selection of sandwiches and home baked cakes, well presented and delicious in taste. Overall an extremely good experience. Visitors using sat nav beware as it tries to lead you down... More

Stayed here as a birthday treat. We started with the afternoon tea, which was great, and we couldn't finish it even though it was delicious (even the charcoal scones!) The evening meal was also delicious with my favorite being the scallops. The hotel itself is beautiful, maybe starting to look a bit tired in areas, but perhaps that helps with... More

My wife and I needed a few days away. Holdsworth House an independently owned country house hotel looked just what we wanted and in striking distance of the Yorkshire Dales. When we needed to make a change or two to our booking it was not a problem at all. I could sense from the email exchanges we would be well... More

Myself and my wife had our wedding reception at this Hotel, 4 years to the day tomorrow. We have just returned from our anniversary meal and the sentiment has not changed. We love it as much now as we did then. And to top it off, a little thank you from them to us for coming back year on year... More

Spent 2 days at Holdsworth House and enjoyed our stay. The hotel is very relaxed whilst at the same time the staff are very attentive. The food was very good and the breakfast was of good quality and plentiful. The gardens are very well kept and peaceful. On the downside the surroundings are very urban, but there is countryside galore... More

We stayed here earlier in the year and enjoyed it so much that we decided to have another short stay. The room was very comfortable, even though it was the warmest night of the year we slept very well. The staff are very good and really help you to enjoy your stay. We could well be returning in the not... More

We stayed three nights during part of a heat wave. The hotel stayed cool inside although it got very warm in the magnificent gardens - warm enough for an after dinner coffee outside. All the staff were very helpful and did everything to make our stay enjoyable. There was a wedding there one day but it did not get in... More

We only stayed one night but found it to be very relaxing. The food is good and the room was very comfortable. The bed was superb, In fact, the whole experience couldn't have been better. We didn't get the best out of the gardens as it never stopped raining but they looked lovely and hopefully when we go again it... More

This hotel is wonderful, the restaurant food is delicious, the staff are lovely. Everything is spot on apart from one thing, I have visited twice this year and both times they got my bill wrong. Sixty pounds last week and £120 in April. Naughty!! Slightly takes the edge off what was two delightful stays. Check your bills.

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
