Probably like others we decided to try this hotel having seen it featured in a TV drama. The location was slightly disappointing in a nondescript suburb of Halifax but the hotel itself and front garden are very impressive (there is also a pleasant inner courtyard which proved a nice sun trap to have a pre-dinner drink). Comfortably furnished common areas with more than adequate bedrooms (although hanging space in the minuscule depth wardrobes was very limited). Probably the outstanding feature is the welcoming and attentive staff. Without exception all we met were friendly and professional. Breakfast selection was comprehensive and we found the 3 evening meals we enjoyed were good quality and well presented (although I personally felt had we stayed longer than 3 nights, the menu might have proved a bit limited).

- Halifax's only four-star hotel is now listed in the 2013 Michelin Guide along with the country's elite hotels & restaurants. Holdsworth House is a beautiful Jacobean manor built in 1633, which has been owned and run by the Pearson family for 50 years. The manor stands in stunning, secluded gardens and is just three miles north of Halifax. It feels a world apart from the bustle of everyday life and is a perfect choice for accommodation, weddings and conferences. In this beautiful old house you'll find open fires, cosy lounges, fine antiques and tapestries that create a sense of history and comfort. The 39 charming bedrooms are all ensuite and have all been individually furnished.
