Had the lucky chance to stay at this very quaint hotel on business. From the minute I entered the hotel the staff were extremely courteous and could not have been more helpful, I even recieved a personalised information letter in the room. The room I stayed in was ample for a business stay, with plenty of space to work and...

Amazingly good pork and beef dishes - really good cooking. Beautiful fresh salmon starter. Incredible rhubarb crumble - possibly the best ever. Local cheeses - especially good Harrogate Blue. All served with attentiveness but totally discreetly by Rob. Just brilliant.

Had an amazing meal here last night. The Restaurant has a great atmosphere and staff are very friendly and helpful. It has 2 AA rosettes but probably should have 3. There is nothing pretentious about the restaurant, it has a nice relaxing atmosphere. The waiting staff were attentive and friendly. I had Lobster, salmon and king scallop ravioli to start,...

Beautiful old house, rooms are a lovely size - I had a gorgeous two poster bed in mine. Everything is tastefully done - from the Yorkshire tea and biscuits in the room to the extremely attentive and helpful staff at check in, evening meal and breakfast. I'll definitely be returning

We stayed there last year and my wife and I agreed, the hotel had thought of everything. Luxury bed with TV and a lovely lounge to rest in which also had a TV. Lovely artwork everywhere.

Stayed for a break with friends and was excellent. Not modern or glitzy but a real hotel with character. Brilliant staff and service from everyone. Even arranged snow for a wintery arrival which made it feel even cosier. Would certainly stay again

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
