Lovely food and beautiful setting, best place to stay in Halifax. Have been here many times! It's excellent for couples, business and families. It's quiet but reasonable placed for visiting the many attractions in Halifax, Bronte country and parsonage is only four miles from here and is a must when you visit.

A very pleasant hotel, traditionally furnished in country house style. The room was clean and comfortable with all that you need; i thought the bathroom a little dated so perhaps some upgrading needed in the coming few years. The service was excellent, such friendly and welcoming staff who could not do more to help, especially welcome as a solo traveller.

Beautiful surrounding, great staff and the family had a fantastic day. Would really recommend this gem. Bearing in mind we had some lively children in tow it was family friendly all round. THANK YOU Christine and family.

Absolutely lovely hotel...Jacobean house that has retained its 17th century feel and character. Well-appointed cosy room (wonderfully comfy 4-poster), very good restaurant with excellent Maitre'd and friendly and knowledgeable young barman. Breakfast equally good with the assistance of the bright and breezy Audrey. Can't wait to go back, but for longer next time

Stayed here on business, great service and amazing value for a standard room. Nice little nooks and crannies around the bar and restaurant too to sit and relax. The breakfast was traditional English and very, very good! I'd definitely recommend staying here if in the area. It was also easy to find.

The hotel reception rooms and bedrooms​ are tastefully and sympathetically furnished in keeping with the period of the building. The open fires and lovely garden a bonus. There was an element of forgetfulness during service of our evening meal, drinks, bread for soup and missing veg . The food was tasty though somewhat minimal and pricey if being bought separately....

I took my 93 year old grandma as a treat. She and I thoroughly enjoyed it. The sandwiches and cake were delicious and had an Easter theme. The service was good and helpful. We couldn't eat it all so we were given the remaining cake in a box to take home. The house and grounds are lovely and quaint

Conviently located in halifax, this is a beautiful privately owned hotel. The staff were all very friendly, warm and helpful. The food in the restaurant was delicious as was our breakfast the next day. The rooms are comfortable and attractive and the grounds are pleasant. My two small children enjoyed running around the knot garden. We stay in a lot...

Stayed here a number of times and its always good. Well maintained traditional style rooms and really good food in the restaurant, if a little expensive. Its a couple of miles of of Halifax town centre - probably about 10-15 mins drive into town. Staff are always helpful and there's some nice touches like a complementary drink on arrival. Breakfast...
