We spent a delightful two nights at this fascinating hidden gem of a hotel; celebrating our friends marriage during our time here with attentive and friendly staff which completed the perfect stay. So good that my wife and I would not hesitate to book the hotel whenever the opportunity arose during our travels in this beautiful area of Yorkshire. Recommended... More

The photos gave me the impression that it was a country manor house but it's very close to the town centre on the outskirts of town and it wasn't as spacious as I may have been lead to believe from the photos. We visited on a Saturday night whilst a wedding was on. We stayed in the hotel bar but... More

We stayed at this hotel because it was the venue for our God-daughter's wedding. It was a splendid venue offering brilliant photo opportunities and an excellent wedding package. But what was it like as a hotel? Well I can report it is a very good hotel. We had a deluxe room which was described so because it was bigger than... More

We stayed here for two nights when visiting family in Halifax and know the area well. We stayed here because the hotel takes dogs, even providing dog bowls and pet paw dog beds but at a hefty price, beware. Also the room we had was described as a 'snug' and it certainly was, not enough room to swing a cat,... More

We stayed for one night here in a 'snug' room. The receptionist was friendly and helpful, and our room was very clean, nicely laid out and the ensuite shower room was modern and spotlessly clean. The hotel is set in a beautiful building with lovely gardens and there is a good sized car park. The double bed was really comfortable... More

This was our fourth visit, it just gets better. The staff are friendly and welcoming, from the check in to check out. Our room was lovely and light with a large velux window. Both our meals in the restaurant were amazing. Lots of choice and perfectly cooked. There was a wedding going on, but because the hotel was so well... More

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.

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

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
