Reviewed 29 December 2014

I brought my husband here for his birthday. My first impression of Holdsworth House Hotel is that it isn't the rural idyll that I'd built a mental...

Our daughter was married here on Sat 20th Dec. From start to finish the staff were wonderful and everything was spot on.

A warm welcome from reception - literally as mulled wine was provided - the room was comfortable and wifi worked first time. The bar food was good quality and good value and the staff couldn't have been more helpful.

my son has just got married at Holdsworth House Hotel, in Halifax and it was an absolute amazing experience! We were a little apprehensive before, thinking that the venue was a little 'old fashioned' initially. Our fears were not realised at all. The ceremony and reception were fantastic, from the intimate room where my son and his future wife were...

We visited in July 2014 for a wedding. The weather was beautiful which highlighted the gorgeous grounds and old building. The double room that we stayed in was nice although slightly on the small side. The meal and breakfast that we had were again lovely and the service throughout our stay was faultless.

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
