We ended up staying here as the hotel in Holmfirth we should of stayed in was double booked so had no room for us. This hotel was booked for us by the Holmfirth tourist information centre staff at 3pm after we found out our fate at our original hotel which we had booked 3 months earlier. We found the hotel to be very clean and tidy. Ok our room wasn't the largest but considering we only wanted to sleep in it, it was fine. Nice selection of hot drinks on our hospitality tray. We found breakfast to be absolutely fine. Nice choice of cereals, fruit, pastries, yogurts etc. We had a lovely cooked to order hot breakfast. Only gripe if you ordered tea you got a pot, if you ordered coffee you got a cup. Would of prefered a pot of coffee. Should we find ourselves in that area again which is doubtful we would definately stay there again. We were so glad that they had got this one room left. We found it to be quite as well. Staff were all friendly as well.

Don't expect 4 star or better, this is a reps' hotel with laptops galore and urgent meetings with Area Managers going on. That said, the small bedrooms are very comfortable even though they overlook car parks and the showers (over very slippery bathtubs) are fairly weak. Breakfast is adequate albeit a smile from a somewhat sulky waitress would have helped. Da Sandros next door offers a lengthy and quite adequate menu.

Room Tip: Choose a room at the back -less road noise

I booked a one night stay for my newly wed Daughter and husband. I found the reception staff to be excellent nothing was too much trouble...bubbly and chocolates etc. to be placed in the room for the newly weds on arrival.

Every thing went perfectly until breakfast the next morning where they were met by indifferent staff, uncleared tables, mixed up food orders, and appalling slow service...the toast almost failed to arrive and only did so after my son in law chased it up several times and then it was at the end of the meal. My daughter and son in law were not an isolated case with plenty of other people suffering the same fate!

Come on Briar Court this is not acceptable and you need to address this promptly...

I booked a superior room and was glad I did. When we entered the room I thought it was a mistake and that this was their normal room. I double checked and was told that it was indeed a "recently redecorated room". Don't get me wrong the room was nice albeit a little small, but was something I would expect of a regular hotel room. We did catch a glimpse of the standard rooms as we were leaving and they were indeed very basic.
Cleanliness was good. Hotel staff pleasant and accommodating.
Breakfast was disappointing though. We decided to take breakfast in our room and was disappointed to see that there was no cooked choices available, not even crossiants. The coffee was hot and good though.
Overall a good stay but not one we will be repeating.

My husband and I booked into this hotel with my parents. Parking was plentiful and service was good when we checked in. The hotel was very hot however that was to be expected as it was the hottest day of the year! The rooms were average, tea and coffee, plus good toiletries. Found a few hairs on the chair which weren't mine and the shower didn't look the best but not unusable! The bed was ok but I think a replacement mattress is needed as we could feel the springs! Breakfast was good, a nice choice of food. Overall a satisfactory stay at a good price. Would stay again if needed to.

Just returned from our second stay at the Briar Court Hotel - we first stayed in November last year and were impressed, so as we had some business in Huddersfield this was the obvious choice.

The staff are all very friendly, and it was reassuring to see familiar faces from our last stay. We had a standard double room and, while not huge, it was comfortable and spotlessly clean (they even passed my "dust on the bedside lightbulb" test - not many do!). We had asked for a quiet room without stairs and were allocated a room on the ground floor at the back of the hotel - perfect! It's another plus point for this hotel, as they clearly had read, understood and acted on our request.

Breakfast at the Briar Court is excellent - good portions, freshly cooked and piping hot (no lukewarm buffet with limp fried eggs here). The service is prompt, efficient and friendly.

This is a great little hotel, handy for the M62 and Huddersfield centre. There's a large (free) car park and Da Sandros Italian restaurant right next door.

You would have to go a long way to find a better hotel at such a reasonable price - at £50 for a double room and excellent breakfast I think it is great value, and we'll be back in October.

Room Tip: Quiet rooms at the back.

The Briar Court is a very well kept clean and comfortable hotel. The staff are friendly and professional and very helpful. It lies just off the M62 with good links to the motorway network. You can take a bus from opposite the hotel right into the centre of Huddersfield.
