Well I have stayed at Holdsworth House hotel on two previous occasions a few years ago and I had the chance to stay here again after being invited to a wedding ceremony here. What can I say, it's a nice hotel... The location is about 4 miles outside Halifax town centre and there is ample parking in the grounds. The style of the hotel is very "old world" with lots of gilded picture frames and oak paneling. The gardens and front facade of the building are beautiful and give lovely opportunities for photos post wedding.
On the whole the staff are attentive and welcoming and well presented, however some of the waiting staff could smile a bit more. We were able to check in 3 hours before the guaranteed check in of 3pm which was a perk. The room was well presented and the bed was comfortable.
On the negative side, as we found out after trying to navigate a wheelchair through the building, the place is not wheelchair friendly. Also the cooked breakfast was overly greasy and not hot, and was served with cold wangy toast. I also don't think the hotel rate is good value for money for the experience (Double room £162 as of 21/10/12)
Unless I was able to get another discount on the room rate (as I did on this occasion), I wouldn't stay at this hotel again as I don't think it is worth the brass.
