The Olive Branch experience was positive from our initial enquiry to the end of our break.
Paul and his team were efficient and friendly and every little thing was attended to. Nothing to much trouble.
Nice rooms, excellent food too.
Wish more placeds were like this.

I stayed four nights at the Olive Branch recently and was made very welcome. The room was spacious, nicely decorated and furnished and very comfortable, with a good sized bathroom. The restaurant has been known for years for its good food, though I think ownership may have changed during that time. I ate in the restaurant twice, and was not disappointed. The Inn is on the A62, so there is inevitably some traffic noise, but it's nowhere near intolerable. The views across the upper Colne Valley are delightful. I was fortunate to be there during a spell of lovely summer weather, and sitting out in the garden at the back looking across to the hillside was one of the pleasures of my stay. The staff are really friendly and helpful, and will make sure any minor problems are rectified quickly. I would recommend The Olive Branch to anyone looking for a great B&B in the Huddersfield area. (There aren't that many, surprisingly)

Room Tip: There are only three rooms, two at the front, so if you wanted to make sure of being away from the r...

We have been eating at the Olive Branch for some time and have always rated it as fantastic and the staff are excellent especially Sammy, Amber and Annie. The food has always been spot on verging on fine dining from the A La Carte. The last time we visited was late April 2013 by which time, the Sunday Lunch Menu had changed from how it was. I have to say that we preferred it as it used to be. Nevertheless, a lovely place to eat and the atmosphere ouzes warmth due to its characteristic decor and wonderful staff who always take time to have a conversation. Always a smile. Hope to see you all soon.

Go for Dinner, bed and breakfast package which was excellent value at £120 for a couple.
They let you choose anything from the a l carte menu and our meals were delicious. We will be staying here again. Lots of lovely villages to walk to along the canal and stunning hill walks from the door.

Room Tip: Choose Serengetti room.

A group of us went to The Olive Branch for a pre Christmas treat. We had all been before and were really looking forward to a lovely meal. The service was very polite but VERY slow. There was no apology for almost an hour's wait for our starter to come. My prawns were raw in the middle and unfortunately 2 of the main courses were also poor and undercooked. Maybe we were just unfortunate but it has put 4 of us returning in the future. For a meal of that price we expected more I am afraid

We go to the olive branch every few months for special occasions; the staff are always pleasant and attentive, and the food is always superb. The place is very expensive though, so bear that in mind. Recommend the risotto!

Located outside Huddersfield, on the edge of Marsden and close to the Stanedge Tunnel. We were very pleasantly surprised. The accommodation is furnished in contemporary style and is very comfortable, although rooms at the front can be noisy during the day if windows are open.
The highlight is the kitchen .... very talented, indeed.
Highly recommended.
