Stayed here on an Amazon deal.
Was impressed from the start, although the satnav did struggle to find it. In a cracking spot in the middle of Holmfirth. For those not in the know, this is the place where the series, Last of the Summer Wine was filmed. And yes we did take the quaint old bus trip that covers all aspects of that programme. Though not an avid viewer, I really quite enjoyed it.
Anyway The Old Bridge is bang in the middle of the town which itself is lovely. Everything is within easy reach. Banks, restaurants, pubs, shops etc.
We were in room 18 which although small was quite adequate, though must be the smallest shower cubicle I have ever used. Heard some guests complaining about the heat. Heck, the country was in the middle of a heat wave. A small fan was available in the room and even with the window open the fan did struggle, but it would have been the same at home. The place is undergoing a rolling refurb. Room 18 has not yet been done. There is a tv and a hair dryer but no air con.
The breakfast was really good with plenty of choice, no complaints there.
Food is served throughout the day on the large decked area between the hotel and the river. The quality is fine and not too expensive. There are two distinct areas, one side is for smokers and the other not. Staff were happy to request customers to move to the other side if they smoked on the wrong side, once they were nudged to do so.
Obviously, a car is essential if you wish to explore the wider area.
Wi fi was said to be available but we couldn't get it to work.
The only gripe we had was the bin men emptying the bins at half past six in the morning. No chance of sleeping through that with the window open.
