Thank you for your review. It's nice to know you thought the hotel was lovely. We're sorry to hear you experienced noise outside the hotel. If you were to stay again, please do not hesitate to ask for a room at the back of the hotel. The hotel is also starting a programme of installing secondary glazing to prevent the noise heard in the town centre.

Stayed at hotel over a three week period and found it very comfortable and central. Rooms are equipped with everything you need and plenty of space. Breakfast in the mornings are very enjoyable with loads to choose from - cereal, fruit, yoghurt etc or fried breakfast cooked to order. All the staff are very pleasant, accommodating and can't do enough for you. The hotel itself is located close to different restaurants, pubs and shops. Highly recommend a stay here

Me and my other half have stayed here twice now and we love it ! the service is brilliant , the staff are very friendly and helpful . The rooms are great with all the facilties you need , they even have a gym and laundry room in the hotel (although we haven't used the gym) . The best part about the hotel is the breakfast , you can choose from a big breakie fruit and cereal etc etc . Excellent overall . The one little tip i would give is to get a room that isn't at the front of the buliding if you are a light sleeper as the pub across can have bands on pretty late , this wasn't an issue for us though as it dies down around 12 .

Room Tip: Rooms at the back have less night time noise

We booked this hotel unseen and at the last minute. We were so lucky! The staff are fantastic. We were welcomed on arrival as if we were important to them. Our room was excellent. Very comfortable and well equipped. The breakfast staff were very friendly and nothing was too much trouble. The breakfast was more than you could reasonably expect and catered for all tastes. It was cooked to order and very fresh and hot. My husband is a vegan and was very happy. We arrived back at the hotel very late after visiting my son and were welcomed by the night porter with a smile and wishes for a good night. I would recommend this hotel and would definitely stay there again. Thank you so much for such a good experience.

Room Tip: We were at the front which is a litttle noisy but we still had a good night's sleep

I work in Halifax, but have never stayed in a hotel in the town. As this was the start of my partner an I's annual two week travel round Britain AND the night before the Olympic relay came to town, I thought I would give it a try.

I booked an Executive room and was NOT disappointed. A fabulous size room, lovely breakfast - and the best thing about it was the most comfortable hotel bed I have ever slept in.

A pleasant reception, and lovely exterior. The inside public areas could do with a bit of sorting though. They weren't appalling, not by a long stretch, just looking a touch tired.

Would recommend.

Uppity reception put me and my boyfriend in the "servants' headquarters" which directly faced McDonalds on a Saturday evening! Needless to say, we were endlessly entertained by colourful arguments and ended with eager, drunk diners purchasing the 5 o'clock breakfast offer. So by all costs, be sure to avoid room 214 and 212! Service at was breakfast was at the opposite end of the spectrum with prompt, smiling service and the pizza at Julio's wonderfully made.

Room Tip: Avoid rooms 214 and 212. Observing the building there are quiet sections.

Spent last night here after a wedding in Halifax. Got a great deal - £59 for a double room including a full breakfast.
Check in was swift, a nice touch was the valet parking - lovely. Our room was small but adequate - at the front of the hotel. This was a problem as it proved to be very noisy with drunken folk making their way past, loitering in doorways etc etc. We should have asked to be moved but decided just to put up with it.
Breakfast was gorgeous. The staff were friendly and very pleasant - just wished I'd asked for a different room. Make sure you get a room not ovelooking the main street.

Room Tip: ask for a room at the back of the hotel, otherwise too noisy

We appreciate the time you have spent writing the review. We're glad you found the staff to be friendly, they have all been here a number of years and make a great team. We're sorry to hear you heard noise from people passing on the street. We are currently looking in to getting secondary windows which will comply with regulations due to us having a Grade Two listed building. Please don't hesitate to mention to reception if you make any future bookings to be away from the main street.
