Stayed one night to attend a concert at the Victoria Theatre. Our welcome was very warm and we were advised that the hotel's garage was full and we would need to find alternative parking. The receptionist gave us directions to a couple of car parks but we managed to find a free spot a few hundred yards away.
We had room 100 which was an executive room with a sitting area as you entered then a separate, large bedroom with two single beds acting as a king size. The bathroom was clean and modern and the shower was suitably powerful.
Breakfast the next day was excellent. There was the usual selection of cereals and fruit and yoghurts etc. and the full English was cooked to order and to perfection. The service was very attentive with endless toast and coffee.
My only gripe is the price of drinks at the small bar. We had a bottle of Magners cider and an appletiser and the bill was over £8. I noticed that a bottle of Black Sheep bitter was £5! You are kidding surely? I've stayed in other more classy hotels where the prices were higher than your average pub but not extortionate, which this was. Given its central location in Halifax it hardly has a captive audience for its bar and I would advise having a nightcap elsewhere.
