All I can assume is that because I was a solo traveler I was not counted as an "important" guest and I got "stuck" in the poorest room the hotel possibly has. I was so excited to come to Holmfirth but the hotel was the downer in my journey. When I arrived, albeit early, there was absolutely no place to park in the hotels' lot. I arrived early and did not expect to get into my room yet, but I was hoping to utilize the parking lot but was told I could use one of the "pay and display" lots around town. I opted instead to drive to nearby Huddersfield and did not return for about an hour, after the appointed check in time, but there was still no place to park.
When I got to my room I found a very out-dated room with cigarette burns and stains in the carpet, bathroom towels with holes in them, no remote for the TV, and a view of the ally and back sides of neighboring businesses.
Later in the night after I checked in I discovered my room was directly above the bar and had to listen to the patrons below me. It was also incredibly hot in my room and I had to have the window open and even with the fan running (a fan provided by the hotel) it still did not drown out the noise of the bar and people in the ally.
The location is fantastic and most of the staff were helpful and nice, and the room was pretty clean. If I had a room on the front side of the hotel I would've had an amazing view of the town, but that was not the case. I really wanted to like the hotel, but it did not work out that way.
