Realising that Huddersfield has few decent hotels, I searched through the B&B listings and was impressed with the reviews on Ackroyd House. I phoned through to make a booking for just 1 night and spoke to Jayne who was very helpful and gave me quiet comfort in the knowledge that I was making the right decision booking their B&B instead of a local Hotel. I'm in the Hotel business myself and like my creature comforts and very rarely book B&B's - I should do more so from now on.
Following an arduous 4 hour car drive to Ackroyd House, we were quickly relieved that we had made the right choice. Andrew showed us to our rooms and gave us the low down on all that we needed to know. We had WiFi, Multi Channel TV, Toiletries, a good shower, a big bedroom, a proper decanter of sherry and great views. He pointed us to a local pub in the village The Rose & Crown, a 10 minute walk away which turned out to be a great evening with Richard the Owner.
More importantly, Jayne's breakfast has the X Factor. Go for the Full Yorkshire, you know its wrong but do it anyway, its not every day and Jayne does it really well - nearly as well as a Full Irish…!
You won't be disappointed, great bed, great room, nice people, full belly - why stay in a soulless 3 star chain when you can stay with real people…?
