“Warm, welcoming, wonderful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 January 2014

Very welcome refuge in a tough business trip. Clean, warm, beautiful bed. It was so hard to tear myself away i hadnt left the room at checkout time. The maid helped me with my luggage and as i was about to drive off, came running after me with something I'd left in the room.

Wonderful

Room Tip: Rooms at the back are very quiet

Went for New Year's Eve. Meals at functions can be disappointing - this was not. Excellent 3 course meal. The Briar Court function room is very pleasant. There was a good atmosphere.

The rooms had obviously been recently refurbished and very comfortable. Our room was just off reception and I was concerned it would be noisy, but it was not. We had a very pleasant stay with a very good breakfast the following morning. All staff excellent, but especially in the restaurant at breakfast.

Would certainly consider for next new year.

We had our work Christmas party here and it was great. The Briar Suite is just the right size for a party with tables beautifully set out and a small dance floor in the middle. The bar prices are reasonable and the Sauvignon Blanc was good. I chose tomato soup which was really tasty and creamy and also piping hot. For main course I had the traditional turkey meal. This was very good too with juicy pieces of turkey, stuffing and a pig in a blanket. As soon as the plate arrived the vegetables were served so it was possible to eat the meal whilst still hot. (My only criticism was that there was very little gravy) . I was impressed with the quality of the food and the speed with which it was served when they were catering for a room full of people. For dessert I had cheese and biscuits ; there was a good selection and butter was also provided which often (infuriatingly) isn't. The size of the room and the positioning of the tables around the dance floor made it really easy to get up and dance or sit down as you pleased and we had a fantastic night. I wholly recommend this venue for parties or events.

Stopped for two nights and had a comfortable stay. Good breakfast all the staff we met were friendly and helpful. Would stay again if needed accommodation in the area also it has a big car park which was a bonus and a hand co-op across the road open 24 hr.

By easy I mean its easy to get to from the M62 and easy to park. The newly refurbished rooms are comfortable. Reception staff are friendly and bar staff attentive. Breakfast was good standard with good choice. I would recommend and will book again for my next Huddersfield trip. By the way if you're worried about turning right out of the hotel car park into the rush hour traffic in the morning - don't be. The people in Huddersfield are always willing to let you out of the junction!

We chose The Briar Court for our wedding venue on the 12th October. We had a truly amazing day. The day was perfect from start to finish. The staff were polite, attentive and professional throughout. The food was wonderful. We simply cannot fault Isobel and her team. This is not our 'biased' opinion, this was the opinion of our guests too. Thankyou so much for your contribution in making our day one we will never forget!!

Not a bad hotel overall but despite being refurbished we both had cold showers - inexcusable in a modern hotel. Shame as apart from that one (important) item everything seemed OK.

Another real turn-off was the clutch of girls smoking outside the front entrance every time we went into the hotel - I know it's better than them smoking inside but there must be somewhere the hotel can find that's better than under the entrance canopy. Like running a Rothman's gauntlet.

The restaurant next to the hotel looked OK, by the way.
