“The grim and tired state of the room was matched only by the unwelcoming attitude of the staff”
Reviewed 9 June 2012

On arrival at this "hotel" I was immediately confused by a main door with a sign pointing to another entrance to the accommodation. After some confusion I realised you have to go inside the pub and go to the bar to check in. Some signage to this effect would be useful. I was offered no guidance re breakfast time the following morning. I was shown to room 4. As I walked through the door of the room I was transported to the early 80's with old cheap pine furniture, the toilet roll holder hanging off, vile carpet on the bathroom floor and helpfully, a tea and coffee tray directly beneath the bracket that holds the tv and I now have the knot in my head to show how usefully located that is. The hotel boasts 2 lounges, however, as I discovered these are only available when the pub is open. As a result I was told I would have to return to my room. After an average nights sleep on an exceptionally hard bed, we went down to breakfast just before 9.30 only to be met with a response that breakfast was 7.30 till 8.30 and there was a notice to this effect. Two of us had not seen this notice but guests in our party in 3 other rooms had not seen this. The manager did provide breakfast and whilst a decent breakfast, it was spoiled by the general surliness of those concerned.

Overall this was an unfunny Fawlty Towers experience with a cool welcome, shabby room and average food. The cost of the room was £72 for the night. My best advice, if you want to stay in Haworth stay elsewhere or alternatively, stay in keighley at the Premier Inm or Travelodge for half the price and come to Haworth by road.

We were stranded overnight due to extremely poor weather.

Arrived at this hotel and they were full, I don't have a problem with that, however ....

There was a foot of snow outside and I would have liked to have thought that they could have suggested an alternative, perhaps a list with phone numbers, or at least they might have lent us a phone directory.

However they weren't at all interested in helping.

We ended up driving down a steep hill into Haworth, this was a one way journey, there was no way we would have driven back up it, If we had been unable to find anywhere we would have been sleeping in the car I think.

Luckily we found an exellent place - Rosebud Cottage - no thanks to the Haworth Hotel.

Good solid pub hotel/B&B close to Haworth village -- less than a five-minute drive to the village/Haworth Parsonage car park or a 15-20 minute walk up a pretty steep hill.
The staff are very friendly and kind and the pub grub is first rate. The pub's regulars are also welcoming and happy to chat, which we really enjoyed so much. Fantastic Taylor's Golden Best on tap with the brewery just up the road. Spicy potato wedges are terrific! Breakfast menu is solid full English and where there are no gourmet flourishes here, the service is memorably homey and friendly. Just right.
I've stayed in accommodation in Haworth village itself and, while it's more convenient to be up there, it can get pretty noisy in village pubs at night. We were pleasantly surprised that the Bronte Hotel, a little ways out of the village, turned out to be a much quieter place to sleep overnight. I could even hear a lone owl hooting beautifully outside at about 5AM -- something I've never heard in Haworth village itself!
The cost of B&Bs around Haworth tends to be on the high side. Given the average expense of a night's stay in Haworth village, the Bronte Hotel gives you particularly good value for money.
If you want to give the tourist track a bit of a miss, the Bronte Hotel might just be the place for you. Great pub grub, great staff, friendly local people, a laid-back and leisurely feel to the place. Sometimes the ordinary can be a lot nicer than what's been scrubbed and polished for tourists. I reckon I'll be back. ;^)

Room Tip: Room 9 in ensuite with spare room.

We stayed at the Bronte for 2 nights over the bank holiday, it has a large car park, room was en-suite and clean. We had both of our evening meals there, very good choice of menu with specials board, breakfast was good with plenty of choice. the station is about 5/10 minute walk and Howarth another 5/10 minutes from there, there is a bus service from outside the hotel to Haworth. The staff are friendly and helpful.
