Me and a friend went on a Wowcher deal..so it was what it was.. Staff Great Food not so good. Poor effort Paid £1.99 for a Pepper sauce which came in a very small ramakim, and U think maybe they had run out..as it was a watery gravy with no taste or substance. Rest of meal followed to same standard . Mass produced packet burgers. Just edible. Although chips also packet..very nice. Breakfast okay, but not well presented. Scramble eggs grey..empty serving trays. Saying this, as our deal included a free bar, we enjoyed our stay..and slept well.

Arrived for a two day visit. Simon checked us in. He needs retraining on how he speaks to people. First night asked for prosecco they don't have any so asked for tea what arrived was dishwater. Yesterday breakfast was only fit for the bin. Bacon been left for an age. Sausages were so dry and cardboard like and the rest was cold. Today we get up to no hot water. Called reception lady said she will deal with it immediately and call us straight back. 45 mins later still no water but thankfully we had friends so popped in to use theirs. When I said to reception I'm still waiting for their call was told they were too busy with breakfast!!! Room was not cleaned and clean towels just dumped on the floor outside the room. Def not worth a first visit let alone a second.

Stayed last night. Rooms clean. Staff, especially Simon, were all very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was nice. Wine was good. Car parking excellent. Really good value and drinks in the room too. Very central to Piece Hall.

Brought through wowcher An overnight stay for two people with breakfast, dinner, and a glass of wine, beer or soft drink each at Wool Merchant Hotel, Halifax. Simon on reception nice at the start booked us in. Room in need of updating, clean bedding and towels but floor carpet had stains room cold had a radiator that did not work. Went for dinner the bar had no beer or cider as changing supplier so told ended up with glass of red wine which must of been opened a week ago as tasted like old socks. The restaurant was disappointing as breakfast table was dirty cereals let out open pots and a general mess. Went to bar to order dinner to be told half the things on the menu was unavailable couldn't have a starter as not part of the deal wowcher and the hotel stated a dinner for two from the dinner menu attached. That's when Simon told me " mame it's not part of the deal read the small print" I showed him all my correspondence and did not say on any email regarding the dinner. So I went with what Simon had said and order 2 beef and bacon salads. Expecting that these would take a short time to do. We waited over an hour then I noticed Simon standing behind the swing doors to the kitchen and herd him tell the Male cook leave them wait. So I knocked on door and asked how long dinner was going to be. Then I sore throat state of the kitchen it was stacked with dirty boxes, dirty work surfaces and food on the floor but there was our dinner. Then Simon brought it to us I didn't tell my friend what a dirty mess I had witnessed. A bowl of leaves with the chewy bits of beef and let over bacon from breakfast. What a let down then Simon in front of my friend decided to challenge me about the small print on his phone about the deal on offer how very rude.

Stayed here a couple of times now, great location about 5 minutes from the shops/bars. Free parking onsite and rooms are spot on, breakfast is buffet style so there’s plenty to go at.Only downside is that the lift was out of order and I was on the top floor 😩
