Attended a friend's wedding here and stayed the night. Very good value, spotlessly clean and well maintained, and all the staff were very friendly. The house and grounds are beautiful, and my friends tell me that the organisation of the wedding was very smooth. The food for the 'wedding breakfast' was fantastic - 50 covers and each as perfect as the last.

Present for my wife was a 2 night stay at the hotel where we spent the first night of our honeymoon before our departure to Yugloslavia from manchester airport.
The hotel has changed since are last stay and has been extended with additional bedrooms.
It still retains a lot of the charm of old house despite thee now being 40 bedrooms. We had booked to eat int restaurant on our arrival and enjoyed a very good meal and bottle of wine. All staff were helpful and polite.
Bedroom was very comfortable despite being on the compact side and included a four poster bed. Breakfasts were good although on the Sunday they were totally overwhelmed by wedding guests and the queue extended beyond reception.
The layout is clever as it is principally a wedding venue now and we were told they had a wedding every day in August. So high number of guests and disco each night but the music did not continue much beyond 11 ish. Would recommend but not if you prefer quiet little hideaway hotel.

Thank you Yorvik82 for writing your review, we are pleased you had a good stay and hope you'll return again soon for a stay or special dinner. We are thankful to be one of Yorkshire's top wedding venues but are careful to ensure the capacity of the hotel isn't compromised nor that weddings encroach on the stay of our corporate and leisure guests. And so it is with a small sigh of relief from our operations team that in fact we don't have a wedding every day in August contrary to what you may have been told!

My 12yr old son and I had stayed for just one night 2wks ago.We were shocked to find such a beautiful historic building and gardens in a built up busy town.
We were greeted by a lovely girl Zoe at reception who was calm,effcient and welcoming.
Both our bathroom and room were spotlessly clean and the bed was very comfortable.
It certainly felt like a trip back in time.All the down stairs rooms still reflecting bits of the past it really is exquisite.After our hearty English cooked breakfast we sat in the garden were we just breathed it all in..
If ever we need to stay in Halifax(town centre 5mins drive away)again we will with out doubt be returning to Holdsworth House.

Dear Shellandpaul we are pleased that you chose Holdsworth House for your stay and that it exceeded your expectations. There are lots of places to discover when using Halifax as your base, in particular the wonderfully eerie Bronte Parsonage Museum in Haworth so we hope you'll return for more.

Took the opportunity to spend some quality time with my husband sans L'Enfant this Bank holiday weekend and booked an overnight stay at Holdsworth House Hotel. Agree with the previous reviewer regarding the location of the hotel, (it appears to have had an entire housing estate built round it at some point) but please do not let this put you off. As soon as you enter the building you could be miles away in the depths of the Yorkshire countryside. Check-in was efficient and welcoming. We chose a suite for our stay, room 16 named the Ayrton, and it did not disappoint. The room was immaculately clean and the décor neutral, but modern. I loved the little staircase to the bedroom in the sky, the velux window let in loads of light and enabled some really needed air conditioning as the weather was unseasonably warm (for Yorkshire in August) the canopied bed was sumptuous and the duvet luxurious and inviting. The hotel itself is an higgledy-piggledy confusion of rooms, but that adds to the charm. We located the bar and the beautiful garden and spent an happy couple of hours soaking up the afternoon sun. Other couples were partaking of the afternoon tea, which looked scrumptious, and will be on my list of must do's next time we visit. We booked a meal in the Michelin recommended restaurant. The service was refreshingly informal, which I loved. The restaurant staff were attentive and down to earth and handled a particularly difficult customer extremely well. As customer service manager's we thought they did an excellent service. The food is modern, but harks back to its Yorkshire roots of comforting and well executed dishes. We especially loved the poussin main course and the ham hock starter. After a faultless night's sleep, breakfast was welcoming and substantial. The poached eggs were a little on the small side, and the sausage might be a little bland, but the bloomer toast was lovely and the marmalade and jam in kilner jars was a lovely touch. Thank-you very much for a fabulous stay. A night's stay in a suite with dinner and wine £296.00 - a snip.

Room Tip: Suites were good value

Thank you so much lulupieNottm for taking the time to write your review. Every guest is important to our business but as customer service managers you will certainly understand the effort that goes in to delivering top quality service. So we really appreciate the recognition and hope you'll return again soon, with l'enfant? (We can recommend Eureka! the national children's museum just 10 minutes away).

My husband and I recently had an over night stay at Holdsworth House and what a wonderful place it turned out to be. The building itself and the wonderful knot garden are like a trip back in time to Tudor times and the inside of the property is equally charming. We had a lovely bedroom with a tester bed and light, airy bathroom. We had a delicious afternoon tea on arrival, a very nice dinner and an amazing number of things to choose from at breakfast. The staff are very helpful and made our short break a memorable one. It was a unique experience.

Room Tip: We had room 34 which was a small suite but big enough to include a large chair and a writing desk. It was very quiet and had a very comfortable bed.
