Absolutely lovely hotel...Jacobean house that has retained its 17th century feel and character. Well-appointed cosy room (wonderfully comfy 4-poster), very good restaurant with excellent Maitre'd and friendly and knowledgeable young barman. Breakfast equally good with the assistance of the bright and breezy Audrey. Can't wait to go back, but for longer next time

Stayed here on business, great service and amazing value for a standard room. Nice little nooks and crannies around the bar and restaurant too to sit and relax. The breakfast was traditional English and very, very good! I'd definitely recommend staying here if in the area. It was also easy to find.

The hotel reception rooms and bedrooms​ are tastefully and sympathetically furnished in keeping with the period of the building. The open fires and lovely garden a bonus. There was an element of forgetfulness during service of our evening meal, drinks, bread for soup and missing veg . The food was tasty though somewhat minimal and pricey if being bought separately....

I took my 93 year old grandma as a treat. She and I thoroughly enjoyed it. The sandwiches and cake were delicious and had an Easter theme. The service was good and helpful. We couldn't eat it all so we were given the remaining cake in a box to take home. The house and grounds are lovely and quaint

Stayed here a number of times and its always good. Well maintained traditional style rooms and really good food in the restaurant, if a little expensive. Its a couple of miles of of Halifax town centre - probably about 10-15 mins drive into town. Staff are always helpful and there's some nice touches like a complementary drink on arrival. Breakfast...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Halifax's only four-star hotel is now listed in the 2013 Michelin Guide along with the country's elite hotels & restaurants. Holdsworth House is a beautiful Jacobean manor built in 1633, which has been owned and run by the Pearson family for 50 years. The manor stands in stunning, secluded gardens and is just three miles north of Halifax. It feels a world apart from the bustle of everyday life and is a perfect choice for accommodation, weddings and conferences. In this beautiful old house you'll find open fires, cosy lounges, fine antiques and tapestries that create a sense of history and comfort. The 39 charming bedrooms are all ensuite and have all been individually furnished. Dinner is served by candlelight in the 17th Century, oak-paneled 2 AA Rosette-winning restaurant whilst the Long Bar has a simpler brasserie style menu. ... more   less
