“Decent enough”
Reviewed 23 February 2014

My wife and I stayed one night. The apartment was fine, if a little on the cold side (switching the heaters on/up soon sorted that). At £48 it was reasonable value for money. A little bit of milk and a few tea bags would have been nice (I suppose we could have asked), as there are no shops nearby. The lady was neither warm nor brusque - she did her job.

Reviewed 25 January 2014

we planned to stay here for 3 nights over new year, the room was very basic and had no homely atmosphere. we felt we had to be out and about all the time as sitting in the apartment was uncomfortable and souless. it was most defonatley a locals pub and area, we entered the butchers arms about 8pm the night before new years eve. as we opened the door to enter the pub we saw about 8 or 10 locals drinking at the bar, as we entered their conversation stopped they all turned around and stared at us making us feel very uncomfortable. they stared as we ordered 2 lagers and watched us as we stood there drinking. no one spoke a word, we had entered the twighlight zone. we couldnt wait to down the lager and leave. As Saddleworth Moors were very close by, my imagination began to go wild, i suggested to my partner it was a local area very similar to the film 'Hot Fuzz' and because i thought we might disappear off the face of the earth (very similar to the film Hot Fuzz) I insisted we went home on the morning of new years eve. Spending new years eve at home and feeling very safe. I am sure i was very wrong about The Butchers Arms and its locals and i am sure they are all very friendly and welcoming but we didnt want to stay around to find out. And as we are 2 women 1 of us being frightened of everything (me) i wont be staying there again

Room Tip: dont stay here unless you own a shot gun for defence

We stayed one night , :
I only have a few moans, point 1, The ONLY mirror is in the bathroom, so how am I expected to use mirror & hairdryer at the same time !
Point 2, We were an adult couple staying, yet we were only given 1 towel between us !

Other than that it was a pleasant stay ( although the fridge should have been colder & maybe, put a rug down on the wooden floors to deaden the noise from people walking about upstairs)

Stayed here for one night so that we could attend a friend's party in Hebden Bridge. For £45 we got an apartment with an open plan living room/kitchen, a nicely furnished double bedroom and a well presented bathroom. All very modern. It was all very clean however i do suggest that they check under the bed when cleaning as when tidying up on the morning of our departure i found a condom wrapper which unfortunately didnt belong to us!

All in all. Would stay again due to excellent value for money.

Very clean and comfortable, a good base for site seeing exceptional value for money but it could do with a hand rail on the stairs for more elderly people. You will have excellent views of the Tour de France in july 2014 as it goes straight passed and car parking is a bonus.

A clean comfortable apartment with quality furnishing and a luxurious bed. Rooms are large and spacious and the accommodation is full of character with natural stone much in evidence. Provides good self catering facilities with plenty of good pubs (including next door!) restaurants and shops within a short distance. The Butchers Arms is in a beautiful location ideal for brisk country walks and exploring. Plenty of on site parking and good road links to local towns and the M62 / M1. The proprietor Lorna is friendly and unobtrusive but always willing to assist.

All in all a great place to stay!!
