A character hotel set in beautiful grounds. The staff were friendly and helpful. Unfortunately our room was rather small and only had a dormer window - so no views. We had expected a slightly better room as we had paid extra for an upgrade. Good selection of gins at the bar. The breakfast was the highlight of our stay. Tasty... More

Tucked away you'd never know it was there - but you'll be glad you did. I stayed on business, delightful food and service. This is fine dining in a relaxed but intimate setting. Real care and attention from the kitchen in the dishes and God value too.

Myself and my husband have just returned from a weekend break at Holdsworth House Hotel and I can't praise the Hotel enough. It has a warm and welcoming atmosphere. It is great value for money.

What a little gem of a hotel! We stayed here for two nights shortly after our wedding as a little treat and we were not disappointed. The hotel is set in lovely gardens, the rooms are very nice and we got a four poster bed. Prior to arriving I had asked the staff to arrange us the usual honeymoon niceties... More

We visited the hotel for a wedding a what a perfect day we had. Surroundings were amazing and could not be more romantic for a wedding. Friendly staff and probably the best wedding food we've had. Can highly recommend Holdsworth House simply beautiful.

Quite simply, I don't know where to start. When we began to look for venues for our wedding it felt like a bit of a chore, dragging ourselves around hotels with large rooms and no feeling of intimacy or cosiness. And then we looked at Holdsworth House on one of their Open Days for weddings. From walking in the door... More

We only booked this the night before as we decided to start our trip to discover Yorkshire a day early. It was a lovely surprise. I had been a bit concerned when I read a review about the size of the 'snug' room. I don't know who said that "you couldn't swing a cat" but it was a lovely room....I... 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
