“Friendly Service, Great Breakfast, ...but too hot!”
Reviewed 8 August 2010

We booked two rooms at the Central Lodge for one night in July, for my son's graduation. The Lodge is located right in the centre of Huddersfield, within easy walking distance of the shops in the town centre and the University. We were greeted warmly by the proprietors, Johnny and Joe, and given a welcome cup of tea. I have to say that the service at the Central Lodge was absolutely fantastic - nothing was too much trouble. There is no restaurant, but a selection of take-away menus were available, and they were happy to phone through our selection, and allowed us to eat our order, (a range of curries!) in the bar. All this at quite a late hour.

The rooms I can best describe as traditional, not particularly spacious, but clean, with en suite, and perfectly adequate for an overnight stay.

Breakfast is superb, a full English, beautifully cooked, and choice of cereals, yogurts, etc, toast, and also a range of home made preserves. It really set us up for the day.

It was also raining that morning, and as we had just come from the South where there was a heatwave we had no umbrellas with us. Luckily the Lodge had some for guest use, and we were able to borrow a couple, which really saved the day, otherwise we would have been completely drenched in the 10 minute walk to the University. We were able to leave the car in the gated Car Park, as parking in central Huddersfield isn't easy, so this was also a great help.

I do, however, have a couple of reservations. For some reason, both our rooms were very hot, ours in particular. This was not due to the weather - it was quite cool outside. We weren't able to open the window as there was a club just across the road which played very load music into the early hours. We did have a fan in our room, but this was insufficient. We had already been offered the use of a fan if necessary, so we had to take up this offer, and the combined efforts of two fans did the trick. I'm not sure whether we were just unlucky with the location of our rooms, or whether they all suffer from the same problem. The public areas downstairs seemed fine.

So I would certainly stay at the Central Lodge again, so long as it was in a different room.

Hello!

Many thanks for your lovely review and the kind comments regarding our staff and facilities. I am glad the brollys were useful to you, we buy them from the pound shop!

I'm sorry to hear the problems with heat in your room, which I would like to blame on our lovely thick yorkshire stone walls. However, I'm glad the fans were helpful, and we have plenty available for all guests.

Please accept my apologies for the noise disturbance from the nearby venue. To be honest we have had a few similar comments recently, and we are in touch with the local Council Noise Pollution Offices. They have issued notices to the venue, instructing them to reduce and keep down the volume, so as not to disturb our guests, even with windows open. Up to now they are complying with this order.

Many thanks once again for taking the time to place a review, and good luck to your son now that he has graduated.

Kind regards,
Joe Marsden

I write this on behalf of myself and my other 5 collegues who stayed at the Central Lodge. Our rooms were above the standard we were expecting with them being extremely comfortable and clean. But above all, the staff were exceptionally friendly and went to great lengths to make our stay a welcomed one and went that extra mile to in recommending/offering to book local restaurants and places to visit. I would not hesitate to recommend anyone to stay here and would make this suggestion in complete confidence. If I am ever in Huddersfield again I would definitely stay at the Central Lodge. Oh... and the breakfasts are tremendously delicious and substantial!!!

This hotel makes you feel so at home, the staff are so friendly and willing to go out of their way for you. The hotel is in a central spot for everything, we were at a summer conference at the university which is a 5 minute walk from the hotel. The rooms were exceptional with excellent facilities, I will be looking to rebook for my graduation in the latter part of this year.

An economical but very comfortable, clean and convenient hotel. Service staff friendly & efficient. Good standard english breakfast with basic choice of cereals. Rooms spacious, clean and restful. More like a relaxing B&B than an officious hotel. Great value all round. Minutes walk to the city centre or Galpharm Stadium.
