We opted for this because of its central location. However, I have got to say the experience was all a bit 'pubby', by which I mean with groups of drinkers outside in the car park, if you're at the front, you get both the cigarette smoke and noise coming up to your room - pretty much all day and night. Add in the noise from the other nearby pub and the lack of decent ventilation/a/c and it's probably not the most comfortable or restful of stays we've had. But it was well priced, the staff were efficient and, generally, we were OK. Basically, you get what you pay for.

Following a gluten free diet the bridge is the place to eat, the chef made me a lovely meal and nice to see thankfully the portion sizes have been reduced, a lot of our friends also commented on fact it's was awful to be over faced with food. Big thankyou to andy stott the fantastic chef

First the good points - of which there are many - good, clean hotel, nice big room, well furnished and equipped, huge breakfast, friendly staff, great location for exploring the area.

Now for the one big bad point - the noise. We were expecting late night noise from the adjacent club as we had already checked Tripadvisor before booking, but as we were staying just one night on business we decided it was worth it for the convenience of the location. If, however, we had booked expecting a peaceful weekend in Last of the Summer Wine country we probably wouldn't have been so relaxed about it. No mention is made of the likelihood of noise on the hotel website (in fact very little information about the accommodation is offered at all) but it seems crazy not make bookers aware as the result can only be to end up with disappointed and angry guests, many of whom have left pretty bad reviews here.

So in summary - if you need a good, comfortable base for a one or two night stay, then this will do (but bring ear plugs). If you are looking for a peaceful holiday getaway, then this might not be for you.

Room Tip: We had an 'executive room' on the top floor, which was spacious and comfortable.

stayed on sat 3rd aug 2013 to see heaven 17 . stayed in room 15, only small but clean and comfortable. breakfast freshly cooked to order, lots of it and very good . staff are excellent and cant do enough for you. good selection of real ales and the desparate dan pie is huge and very good value. only slight niggle is the car park which is very tight with an entrance hard to find but would definately stay again.

Room Tip: try and get the room with a little balcony , think its room 7

We have stayed here a few times whilst attending gigs next door! A great 2 night stay last weekend. The rooms are quite small but well equipped. Lovely staff especially Rebecca who sorted out our bookings for us and who is also a great car park organisers!!

Our stay at the Old Bridge had previously been booked by travelling companions and regrettably we neglected to refer to Trip Advisor.
We were allocated room 21 - a room to be avoided as per other reviews, but as the stay was on a Tuesday night it was expected noise would not be a problem.....WRONG.
From 9 pm til 1130+ our ears were assailed by the atrocious sounds of wannabe 'Irish Rovers' eminating from the Pub next Door. The noise no other word would describe it, was of such a volume that even the room TV at full could not clearly be heard.
The room itself was small, gloomy and very hot and even with the widows open (refer to noise) it would not cool for our entire stay. Our companions Room 32 described their roof top room as suitable for a Hobbit and too were affected by noise.
The Hotel itself was as the rooms Gloomy and Hot, we did not eat here other and breakfast (chipped cup).
Following my complaint in the evening (to be considered in the morning at checkout) the resultant discussion produced a meagre discount but no impression given that any improvements would be made for future guests.
I am at a loss to understand how The Hotel is able to display a Trip Advisor Certificate of excellence as it certainly not warranted .
My advice is if you can avoid this place DO.

Room Tip: Do not accept rooms 18 to 24 if you have to stay

After reading some reviews we where a bit apprehensive about staying here but i must say we was very surprised at the location of the hotel and the politeness of the staff. We stayed in room 25 which was next to the music venue, not a nightclub, and had 2 un-broken nights off quality sleep. After speaking to my family who live in Holmfirth it turns out the place next door is a music venue and doesn't open after midnight .
Anyway back to the hotel the room was very clean and the staff where more than helpful . Breakfast on both days was lovely and the hotel itself is right in the middle of town so most things are within walking distance.
If we go back we will definitely stay here again.
Big thanks to all the staff.
