Had an amazing meal here last night. The Restaurant has a great atmosphere and staff are very friendly and helpful. It has 2 AA rosettes but probably should have 3. There is nothing pretentious about the restaurant, it has a nice relaxing atmosphere. The waiting staff were attentive and friendly. I had Lobster, salmon and king scallop ravioli to start,...

Beautiful old house, rooms are a lovely size - I had a gorgeous two poster bed in mine. Everything is tastefully done - from the Yorkshire tea and biscuits in the room to the extremely attentive and helpful staff at check in, evening meal and breakfast. I'll definitely be returning

We stayed there last year and my wife and I agreed, the hotel had thought of everything. Luxury bed with TV and a lovely lounge to rest in which also had a TV. Lovely artwork everywhere. The food was amazing and the service was first class. The gardens are the best I have ever come across at a hotel. No...

Stayed for a break with friends and was excellent. Not modern or glitzy but a real hotel with character. Brilliant staff and service from everyone. Even arranged snow for a wintery arrival which made it feel even cosier. Would certainly stay again

We visited for two days this summer as my sister got married here. They opted for one of the afternoon tea wedding packages as we were a small group and I honestly have nothing but praise for every aspect. The venue is stunning and at no time do you realise how close to Halifax you are. The staff were the...

Me and my family stayed for two nights for a wedding. The hotel and rooms were lovely and clean. The food was fabulous. The only thing that let it down was the staff's attitude, we found them to be abrupt at times. Me and my sister waited at the bar for a while as we waited for ages watching one...

From the moment I walked into Holdsworth House I knew I wanted to be married there. The hotel is full of character and charm and was the most beautiful setting for our wedding.

Although quite a drive, I decided to take my mum here for lunch as a late celebration of her 83rd birthday. Wow. The hotel looked stunning dressed in it's Christmas finery.

We enjoyed our two night stay in this lovely, historic hotel. All of the staff we encountered were friendly and professional. The original building is fantastic, although there has been extensive expansion and not all rooms are in the historic part of the building. The restaurant food and service could not be faulted and thankfully they were sensitive to keep...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
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. Dinner is served by candlelight in the 17th Century, oak-paneled 2 AA Rosette-winning restaurant whilst the Long Bar has a simpler brasserie style menu. ... more   less
