“Fabulous stay!”
Reviewed May 17, 2014

Stayed for one night in May 2014. We were very impressed when we first arrived with quality of the decor and the stunning views. The staff were all extremely friendly, taking the time to say hello and ask about our stay. Bedrooms are huge with modern bathrooms and comfy king size beds. The excellent breakfast was just right, and we also ate in the restaurant and enjoyed fantastic food & value.

The hotel is situated above Sowerby Bridge, and as we arrived by train we used the local taxi services which were very prompt and cheap so it was very easy to get around without a car. The road is steep though, so bad weather could affect this. Fortunately for us we had sunshine all the way.

If you are in the area i can't think of any where which could match the quality, value and views; absolutely lovely.

Room Tip: all the rooms have recently been refurbished so any should be of a high standard

Enjoyed a delightful one night stay here with my girlfriend over the May bank holiday. The Hobbit is refreshingly different and well worth the walk up the very steep hill from Sowerby Bridge to Norland village where the pub is situated. The pub has a very clean and fresh feel to it. Whoever designed the interior did a very good job, with everything very tasteful in style and colour co-ordinated, the carpets and colour scheme being well thought out. the same could be said for the room we stayed in, which was very comfortable. Unfortunately we did not have time to stay for a meal in the pub, but the menu looked very appealing. Breakfast the following morning was nice and plentiful. The staff throughout our stay were very friendly and helpful which added to the enjoyment of our stay. I would recommend the hobbit and already
and already am planning to visit again soon.

Our large group of friends visited here for a birthday meal over the bank holiday weekend.

The location is a little remote but not too much trouble to get to in a car.

The restaurant and bar are are lovely, nicely decorated and laid out.

The large range of dishes sampled by our group was fantastic, very tasty and reasonably priced too.

The drinks were a little pricey compared to other places.

Staff were very friendly and helpful and didn't bother us too much asking how things were with the food etc.

We would definitely return here without a doubt. Thank you.

I have been regular business traveller to the Calderdale area for many years and have tried lots of the local pubs, hotels and B&B's but in recent months The Hobbit has definitely become my first choice. The rooms are competitively priced but are spacious, clean, well furnished/equipped (including free wi-fi) and most importantly large comfy beds! There is a really nicely styled modern/rustic lounge area adjacent to the bar with large sofas - perfect for a pre-dinner drink or post dinner relax. The menu has a really good range of food on offer which is always well-presented and served with a friendly smile. I have always found the staff to be friendly, attentive and engaging. The drive up from Sowerby Bridge is up steep and narrow roads but worth it for the impressive view across the Calder Valley.

Room Tip: Rooms to the front have great views across the valley but would have more road noise, rooms to the r...

I had my 30th birthday party at the New Hobbit last night and it was fabulous. From start to finish the service was excellent and would like to give a special thank you to Louise. My family and I also stayed over in the hotel and was pleasantly surprised by the rooms. We had a family room and it was very spacious and comfortable. We all had a great nights sleep. Breakfast was a buffet and there was plenty to choose from and was replenished regularly.
I would definitely recommend the New Hobbit for a function, meal and overnight accommodation. Thank you for making my birthday party so memorable.

We stayed overnight at the New Hobbit as my sister was holding her 30th party there.
The staff were really friendly and welcoming and couldn't do enough for us.
The room was great and had everything we needed.
Food was fantastic and I'd definitely recommend holding a function there!!
