“Crafter Retreat”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 November 2013 via mobile

the Huntsman was a Return Visit for the Stamp Pad in Greenfield who had booked a return Crafters Retreat, Friday evening Saturday and Sunday. the retreat organised by Gwen from the stamp Pad was excellent. Full of interesting Projects. The Huntsman's could have been the ideal place for our Retreat as previously; the bedrooms had been refurbished to a very high standard and were excellent, clean and comfortable. The food was very good when it arrived but some of the new staff have a lot to learn about PR and service. They were understaffed for the number on our course plus the other guests who were booked in either in the hotel or as diners. This didn't daunt us. We had an excellent short break, The hotel did their best under difficult circumstance and are actively recruiting more staff.

Stayed November 2013, travelled with friends

We decided to look for a relaxing hotel at the North end of the National Park and decided on The Huntsman just outside Holmfirth. Being a dedicated "Summer wine" fan it has always been an area I have wanted to visit for Years.We stayed for three nights in room 10, with our friends in room 11 next door,from the 8th October 2013. We all thought it was an excellent and well run hotel. The food was perfect and the service was the best we have encountered in the U.K. for years.The hotel has just been given a makeover to a high standard with the bedrooms finished luxuriously.
We would recommend this establishment to any looking for a relaxing short break in Yorkshire and we will almost certainly return next year.

Room Tip: Rooms 10 and 11 have excellent views over the valley.

This is a really a great place to stay and this offer was well worth the money with £40 off the evening meal and a free bottle of wine and a later check out. The bedroom was really good with tea/coffee facilities and lovely soft white towels. The food was well presented and all the staff were friendly and could not do enough for you .We have booked again to stay over Christmas -special thanks to Tom in the restaurant, Alex and Sonia.

Our Booze and Snooze package has been hugely popular this year and we plan to introduce more packages in the near future, possibly golf breaks and Shooting breaks too.

Ordered a pint and a half of San Miguel which came in a Bulmers glass that was scratched it tasted poor as well, we paid £5.40 for this round.
Went to order another pint and a half, this time in San Miguel glass told it was £6.10
What a rip of to charge 2 different prices within an hour
Won't be going again at those prices and having to wait ages 1 staff member serving 8 customers at bar
Very poor

After reading several mixed reviews about the Huntsman, i decided to book a Dine & Duvet Night and give it a go. I'm so glad i did, Early check in at 1pm was great the reception staff were friendly and helpful and made both my wife and myself so welcome, The room was great very large an spacious and had an amazing view...We decided to have a bite to eat in the bar, the food was great and for a bar snack plenty of it..The selection of real ale is good to. As we had booked the Dine and Duvet we booked a table in the restaurant for 8pm. the menu had a great choice and the staff very friendly and couldn't do enough for you. as for the food what can i say.. other than amazing and plenty of it,,, i was struggling to finish my desert.. Late checkout the following day is a must as you don't feel rushed, Breakfast in bed came prompt at 10 am as ordered and again plenty of it. All I i can Say is the Huntsman is a great Inn, with great staff and amazing food. and Lovely rooms to relax in. We will be recommending it to friends and family, and are already planing a return visit.

Room Tip: Room 6 is The Honeymoon Suit which i booked which i will be booking again, its spacious and great vi...

Stayed here 2 nights, as we had booked to go to Holmfirth Vineyard. The hotel is out of Holmfirth town, which we liked. Room, lovely decor, clean well equiped - tea/coffee etc. great views. Very friendly staff & restaurant & food very good. We stayed on the booze & snooze, very good value with a bottle of wine with dinner. The hotel is close to many lovely walks. We walked back from the vineyard (another good visit) approx 3miles which took us around the nearby reseviour. Will book again sometime.

Arrived on 20 September after a night out in Holmfirth for my partner's birthday.

Room was lovely and very clean but can't really comment on anything else.

Staff only had to explain check in and out procedures and tell us when food was served, and they did just that...
