The dinner was excellent quality and made better by the service received. The venue was holding a large wedding so we were the only ones in the dining room but it felt intimate rather than awkward. Would definitely dine there again!

We have just returned from an overnight stay at this charming hotel which is steeped in history and character. We were there for wedding and this was a perfect venue. On arrival we were greeted enthusiastically at hotel check in and were given a friendly warm Yorkshire welcome. The house itself is unique with lots of lovely nooks and crannies...

Thank you Carolandroger for staying at Holdsworth House and for your very kind words. Weddings are tailored to each bride and groom so it is lovely to hear direct from the wedding guests about the wonderful time they had too.

For one night this hotel is ok. The rooms are reasonable but nothing special. Similarly, breakfast was standard but again nothing special. The location is lovely on the moors but with no gym, I had to go road running to get any exercise. The staff were generally welcoming and friendly and the setting in an old building is interesting.

Eating in the restaurant on Saturday night was fantastic. The food was delicious and the menu catered for all tastes. I liked the service because it was polite and unobtrusive. The only down side was the James Blunt cd on a loop. The quality of the food was not matched by the position of the hotel (in an industrial estate...

Our room was very dated and rather basic. Had we been staying more than one night, I'd have asked to be moved. The view from our ground floor room window was of the extension accommodation block, which looked tired and in need of some cleaning. First impressions were far from good! However, after that - very few complaints. The gardens...

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
