“Lovely country house hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 July 2012

First class food, great service all at a really good price. Hidden away on the edge of Halifax is this lovely gem of a country house hotel. The rooms, hallways and reception areas are all nicely straggled around the place.

My boss stays in this hotel whenever he is in Halifax and I got the opportunity to stay there myself this week. Such a charming hotel, my room was fabulous and the staff couldn't do enough for us.

We had a meal for 12 in the evening and the food was superb. So I was looking forward to breakfast and that too did not disappoint.

If you are ever in this part of the world I would highly recommend a stay here, excellent value for money as well.

what an excellent venue for a stay in the area. We had an lovely welcome from the front of house staff and found our suites to be excellent value. We had utilised the restaurant over our 3 night stay and would like to compliment the chef on his good food. He even went out of his way to make a special dish of vegetables that were not on the menu. As the Long Bar was being refurbished I have to say that the bar staff did very well to accommodate our every need. Thank you to all for making this trip a memorable one.

This is our second visit and again did not disappoint. Great location with well presented and comfy rooms. After a late arrival we were greeted with a complimentary glass of punch and a friendly and efficient receptionist. After a great nights sleep we had a freshly made cooked breakfast from a wide selection on offer, the restaurant staff were very attentive. Would highly recomend this hotel and will definitely be staying here again on visits to see son in Leeds.

My husband and I celebrated our 33rd Wedding Anniversary ,having a private meal for the two of us in the stone Gazebo at Holdsworth Hall Hotel.
I cannot thank the staff and particularly Joe and Alicia enough for making it such a special experience . I can thoroughly recommend the Gazebo for that special celebration.. It's certainly a hidden gem. The food was excellent and my only problem now is trying to find another excuse to visit.!!!!

Thankyou Holdsworth Hall
