Modernized small hotel with a restaurant within the bar area. The staff were very friendly and efficient. The menu was based around good old fashioned cooking. The food was well cooked and presented. The ultimate test is would we visit again.......yes certainly

I have stayed here a number of times on business. The service is good, the food is excellent and has generous portions and the rooms are clean and well equipped. If you're staying in the area or you are looking for a nice meal with good views, you could do a lot worse. The only negative comments I can make...

Nice friendly hotel with nice food. Stayed in room 8 which had a nice view (before the window filled with condensation), but there's an issue with the radiator, meaning the room is either sweltering hot, or freezing cold. There is no sound proofing and all the room doors 'catch'. This results in being woken several times during the night, hearing...

We booked three rooms for an overnight stay. This was so extended family could get together to meet even more family in Halifax. Climbing very steep hills from Sowerby Bridge to get to the property we were rewarded with magnificent views of the valley to the front of the property. Plenty of off road parking which was free. Greeting by...

We visited The New Hobbit on a Sunday afternoon and didn't book. This place is stunning in terms of decor and cleanliness. The staff are as welcoming and inviting as the log burning fire is, and the food matched all the features that this hidden gem has to offer. Will be visiting again!

Myself and my partner headed to The New Hobbit this last Sunday for my Birthday weekend and I have to say - we were treated to a first class experience. Not only was the food in the restaurant fantastic but the staff were incredibly friendly and attentive and really went the extra mile - so much so that they treated...

We were surprised to experience such a high level of accommodation at such a reasonable price! Rooms were attractively designed and furnished, breakfast was excellent and staff courteous and friendly. We will certainly stay here again when in the area.

We stayed here to be close to Huddersfield - but a little further out for peace and quiet. The New Hobbit is still having additional rooms built and has obviously undergone considerable refurbishment. Our room(#1) overlooked the car park but was completely quiet - I guess if a wedding celebration was underway and you were not invited, it could be...
