We booked a family room which was clean and comfortable with plenty of space for the 3 of us and was an absolute bargain at £30/night including a decent continental breakfast buffet. The only minor comments are that it was easy to bang your head on the sloping roof in room 21 (if you were clumsy like us), the only window was high up and the whole lodge appeared to be launching into outerspace when the shower was on. It was perfectly fine for 2 nights though.
The pub serves good beer and the food is standard Vintage Inn fare although we didn't eat here this time. The pub is close to countryside (including the 330m high Emley Moor transmitting station which according the Wikipedia is the tallest free-standing structure in the UK) but also close to Huddersfield and within easy reach of the M62 and M1. We would certainly consider staying here again.
