Stayed for three nights with my wife for her birthday. I believe it was built in the 1600's and maintains its old world charm with lots of original features. All the communal areas have dark panelled wood, leaded windows and stone features. It really is like going back in time. A very cosy atmosphere helped along with an open fire....

What a find this was. Fantastic from the minute we arrived. On check in we were greeted and offered a complimentary glass of wine - what better way to start our break away! Our room was tastefully decorated, clean, spacious and in keeping with the building and environment of a traditional Jacobean manor. There was a wedding the day we...

We went via Groupon, the venue is really nice as in well maintained and picturesque. We swopped prosecco for lattes. We tried fish cakes and risottos for starters all were nice, steak's were as ordered so no complaints. We were waited on by a very nice lady called Allesha who was excellent.

Found this hotel whilst staying in Halifax on business. It’s a little outside the centre of Halifax but still convenient for me to the office. The welcome was great and to have a glass of wine given to me free of charge as soon as I arrive was a huge plus point. The room was clean and comfortable and was...

To be fair I have written a 5/5 review for the restaurant as it is thoroughly deserved but the hotel was beyond average. This is not a 4 star hotel. Some parts are very quaint like the restaurant and the bar but it seems the rest has just be added on to cram customers in. I don't know what the...

A wonderful setting and charming from the front of the building. Inside, we enjoyed the character of the place but needed things like the log fires to be burning to give it the atmosphere it deserved. Small glass of wine on arrival was nothing special and almost an insult. The room was in a more modern addition with just a...

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
