“Engagement anniversary”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 June 2013

Myself and fiance stayed here Saturday 22June for 1 night, we got engaged 12 months go in Cape Verde, and decided to mark the occasion with a trip to Holdsworth house to celebrate, we are actually having our wedding reception here in July 2014 and absolutely love the place, we have been for afternoon tea here several times (which is fabulous!), so this time decided to have afternoon cream tea instead, as we were dining in the restaurant later that evening.
We booked a superior double, room was lovely bed very comfortable, staff are very friendly and attentive, food was superb and we finished off the evening by having drinks by the fire, there was a wedding taking place and we were getting a little giddy as in 12 months time it will be our turn!, very relaxing stay we simply love the character of the place oldy worldy creaking floors etc, and our favourite part is the front of the house and gardens simply stunning.

Room Tip: Try and book one of the split level rooms, we had a look around them at a recent wedding fayre at th...

I got married here on 15th march 2013 and it was the best day ever such a romantic and unique place. Tracey and her team were very helpful and did everything they could for us. The ceremony was perfect and everything ran smoothly. All the guests had a brill time and everyone loved the food. The Dj was great and played fantastic music all night which made everyone dance all night. Everything was brilliant from start to finish and could not fault this wonderful hotel.

We booked the hotel for a stopover on our way home from visiting relatives but had never stayed in this part of Yorkshire previously.Whilst it is situated in a residential area, once you enter the grounds there is a tranquility and peace surrounding the hotel and gardens. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful, making you feel very welcome. The food was excellent and a very good wine/drinks list. We took advantage of the anniversary break offer and were given an upgrade on arrival.The suite was spotless and the bed extremely comfortable. We would highly recommend a visit and especially as a base to tour West Yorkshire.

Room Tip: Take advantage of the weekday break with an upgrade, if possible.

Dear JCT89 we are delighted you chose us for an overnight break and that you enjoyed Halifax, which does have so much more history, scenery and culture to offer than many realise - a hidden gem in the heart of Yorkshire. We hope you'll return for more.

A fantastic step back in time, "Olde Worlde" feel to this hotel.
We chose to go mid week on purpose thinking it would be quiet, we weren't disappointed. after a very warm welcome by the reception staff, we enjoyed a drink in the lovely gardens in the sunshine, bliss.
The food was excellent and the staff team very attentive.
We stayed in a split level suite which was very comfortable and clean.
Will definitely recommend the Holdsworth Hotel to friends and family.

Our visit to the hotel was for a wedding celebration! We received excellent service from friendly staff at this quirky hotel, set in beautiful grounds! Food was gorgeous and the beds oh so comfy!
Nothing was too much trouble, and would definitely stay again and recommend this hotel to friends/family

A top grade place to stay.

Quality and service ooze from Holdsworth.

Fine grounds, building and rooms - Was once visited by the Beetles in their early days (some memorabilia in a frame near reception).

Restaurant excellent with a fine menu. Service second to none.

Room Tip: Phone first and discuss with reception who will help you choose.

Excellant venue, very quirky. We attended for a wedding and it was perfect. Staff polite and well presented, nothing is too much trouble for them. Rooms clean and tidy and the bed was so comfortable i wanted to bring it home. The gardens are beautiful and well maintained. The food is delicious too. An over all brilliant experience and will definitely be going back. Stunning!!!
