Innkeeper's Lodge Huddersfield, Kirkburton
Ranked #7 of 21 Huddersfield B&B and Inns
Reviewed February 20, 2013 via mobile

We found this lovely hotel/inn on the Internet and decided to visit as a family of two adults and two children and we were not disappointed. Very clean rooms with flat screen tv (we took a DVD player for the kids at night that plugged in) and very spacious too, particularly the family rooms which consisted of a large double bed and a good sized fold out bed. Decent size bathroom with big shower and option to request complimentary shower products if you forget them. Great location for travel around Yorkshire. Continental breakfast is okay, but get early as milk gets warm! Very friendly and helpful staff.

This 'budget' inn was recommended to us and we were not disappointed. Our whole experience was excellent. The Inn, the accommodation, the staff and the restaurant were without fault. We stayed for two nights on a deal that included English Breakfast, for just under £44 per room per night. We dined in the restaurant on one night and it was fabulous. We do travel quite a bit and having read some of the other comments, almost wonder if we are talking about the same place. We thought the food was both excellent quality and very good value. We would now like to visit another Innkeeper's Lodge to see if the same standard is across the board

Went for dinner last night, overpriced, extremely slow service, decidingly average overpriced food, the gravey for my wife's lamb shank pie, came out at the same time as the bill, Avoid!

Worst £50 for dinner for two that I've had the misfortune to spend, might be worth taking into account if you were thinking of going here on Thursday for valentines, As the Kitchen and staff obviously can't cope with large numbers of covers!

We had two rooms, and for the price, could not find fault except perhaps that my daughter found the first floor rooms a little dark as the windows are small - ours on the ground floor was fine.
Food - Friday night - waited over an hour after ordering. When it did arrive the portion was small and there were no accompaniments - never did find out what happened to the "slaw" which was supposed to be served with the tuna burgers - only a burger and chips arrived. Having worked in the trade a long time ago, I would have thought an apology would have been in order (most of us understand that kitchens have "bad" nights) but nothing was forthcoming. On the Saturday night we returned after a great meal in Huddersfield and had a nightcap (we were "told" where we could sit so as not to get mixed up with the diners? - by 10pm the place was hardly full). I had a look at the meals others were eating and, that evening, they did look less meagre and more appetising but it was a lot later in the evening. The "free" buffet breakfast was adequate. I would stay here again as the accommodation was excellent value (winter deal price) but I think I would go elsewhere to eat (my son-in-law was brought up locally so knows the area and kept wishing we had gone up to the "Woodman")

Room Tip: Look for the special offers on accommodation, ask for a ground floor room and eat elsewhere.

The pub is recently renovated, the staff friendly and the food there fantastic, however the accommodation is not to the same standard. The rooms are dated, the paintwork is scratched and fixtures are tired. The bathroom floor between the tiles was stained with what looked like blood by the toilet and on the shower curtain. There were hairs on the bathroom floor when we arrived. The cold water tap only came on at a tiny trickle and the hot water was too hot, meaning we could not wash our hands in the bathroom. The bed has no matress protector and we were both scratched by the buttons on the matress, plus disgusted that there was only a thin sheet to change between guests. The TV did not work and when I told the staff member he said he would try and look at it but there was no dedicated staff for the lodge. It was not fixed during our stay. We also tried to get the wifi to work for 20 minutes before going to ask, only to be told it was not working and that it was O2's problem (no apology), although it was working in the pub area. A note in the room to this effect to stop us wasting our time in the first place would have been better. We were not informed of the different breakfast time on weekdays (earlier than weekends) so missed the breakfast buffet, were made to feel it was our fault and had to pay for bacon sandwiches! The cleaner was cleaning near us then as we ate, despite the pub advertising a breakfast menu to the public between 8 and 12. The pub is great and I have spent a lot of money in there over the years. I was devastated to bring my boyfriend there for what was supposed to be a treat, only to find out how rubbish the rooms were. The fact they are not well-kept or staffed made us feel that the company are greedy, taking our money for little return. Luckily it was a special offer when we booked, because we would have felt really ripped off had we paid full price. It is ok for a cheap nights accommodation if you have to be in that area, but don't expect much.

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.
