It was convenient to the M62 The Television did not have cefax, Breakfast was extra
Well mannered helpfull staff.Good facilities and set just out of town away from noise.Good standard of cleanliness Menu in restaurant not very accomodating.Not a lot to choose from
location and pool
Easy to find, be easier if direction of travel on M62 was mentioned Radio facility did not work
The hotel was quite good in all areas I thought the quality of food for dinner and breakfast was very poor
The hotel was warm, friendly and clean. The breakfast was particularly good as it was cooked fresh.
The calm air and proffessionalism of all the staff, made me feel very welcome and secure. The checking out time could have been a little later at the weekends.
Hotel location close to city and highway
The breakfast choice was very good The bed & pillows were very hard
Really helpful staff Hotel is shabby and needs updating
Pleasant staff, comfortable room. Good breakfast, good price. Central location None
The staff were very welcoming and helpful eg we were able to leave our luggage and pick it up later. The room was clean, quiet and pleasant and the facilities good. Nothing...all good
The staff were excellent, made sure everything was to our satisfaction. Nothing
The staff were extremely helpful, polite, and welcoming on every level. the rooms were very warm and very clean, and we had an excellent nights sleep. The breakfasts were freshly cooked to order and there was plenty of variety. The hotel was very close to the town centre.
Attentive and eager to please staff. Good breakfast Central location makes for easy walking to town centre Some aspects of cleaning.
Good breakfast, excellent staff, clean and comfortable room. No bar or lounge.
Hotel needed some TLC around the edges but staff very helpful. Good value. Furrniture in the room needed updating.
Very central, friendly staff. Comfy room. None whatsoever
helpful staff, lovely and warm on a freezing weekend, comfey beds, and central to city. no bar, but reccommended great real ale pub 5mins walk away.
I found the cambridge lodge to be in great location, staff friendly and room very clean and comfortable
The area and appearance
Close to the event we were attending at Brockholes and the warm friendly atmosphere. Noise from upstairs and outside car door banging.
It was lovely & warm The shower could do to be a bit more powerful!!
no one rushes you food ha improved we were fine but others were maoning how long it took to get the eggs for their breakfast room 101 we had we arrived about 20 hundred hours window had been left opened net curtain was out of window and wet and heating was off we were tired and cold after a 6 hour journey my husband had to climb on chair to close window and he manage to turn heating on fire alarm went off when in bath but no one annouce it was false alarm got out quickly and then fire alarm went off
Size of room and bathroom as well as comfort staff very helpful
Lovely hotel, staff very nice. very good value for mony especially as breakfast was included in the price.
restaurant was great didn't like the shower in my room as it was set up for a wheel chair user so didn't go up very high.
prego restaurant small room
The bathroom The attitude of the receptionist
the room it was clean and tidy and comfortable
The room was very clean and the beds were fantastic.
The cooked Breakfast was warm / cold
Quietand it has a very good restaurant.
The warmth of the hotel on a cold day I would have liked a teaspoon in the bedroom to stir my hot chocolate
The restaurant room was too warm ...
The atmosphere in the resteraunt / bar was excellent and the food was fantastic The location is difficult to get to, particularly at night. Don't put the postcode in a Sat Nav!!!
Friendly staff and most pleasant ambience. Excellent breakfast and evening meal. There seemed to be an extractor fan blowing outside all night.
Food and the staff were excellent. The staff made you feel very welcolm
Very attentive staff who helped to make you feel special. A perfect get away from everyday life
Stayed in the best room which was fabulous staff extremely pleasant Vegetarian menu limited, a comment to vegetarians to ask us to cook it is reccommended
Very helpful staff, especially with regard to children, great food. Unimaginative room, small bathroom.
The gardens of the hotel, beautiful sank garden, excellent food and the coffee, very poor and thin and we mentioned this to the manager
Pretty good but the food was pretentious and not quite there. The Chef needs to be told to the simple things well and let the food speak not the menu.
Staff were extremely helpful, polite and professional, a real credit to the hotel. Quite cold in the rooms, heating didn't appear to be working. Bathroom was quite tired in appearance.
Friendly and helpful statt, who went out of their way to ensure we enjoyed our stay.
The location and ambience of Holdsworth House, the Millienium garden and the peaceful setting. The staff were courteous and very helpful, but unobtrusive. No comments
Had an excellent dinner in the restaurant, lovely food and good wine choice. Also the bed was larger than in most hotels and very comfy too. Bathroom was a bit small, and had no window or extractor so got quite humid/wet.
Breakfast was excellent however there is no need to charge a supplement for cooked breakfast We arrived at 9 pm - it was a struggle to get food at this time.Also we had requested twin beds but got a double however it was changed after about a half hour- last thing you need after a long day
very enjoyable i would visit again
I have stayed at Holdsworth House a couple of times now - it is a great place made more special by the staff, all of which are very friendly and helpful.
The staff were unfailingly friendly and efficient. Also, the accommodation is very unusual -- my room was in a superbly built log cabin within the woods about two minutes walk from the main hotel building -- great facilities (free wireless Internet, swimming pool, gym) and sense of tranquility. The food is excellent too -- I ate in the bar and in the restaurant and both served reasonably meals of an unusually high standard.
Intimate, romantic, relaxing. Food was amazing as were the views and the room. No slippers in the room enquirer about them twice as they. Were on the booking. Only confirmed to me on checking out none available but got surcharge on room service escorted which made up for it. But a phone call or visit to the room with an update would have helped
Relaxing atmosphere and enjoyable pool and jacussi Poor service at breakfast opened jams at table not informed of breakfast routine
The total relaxation, the beautiful surroundings, the restauant was excellent and apart from the private hot tub not working on the first night everything was perfect.
The spa is great and the evening dining was nice. Lovely location. Room was shabby and in need of serious TLC.
The bar / restaurant Cleanliness and heat of room!
fair prices in the bar jack johnson music all the time. petty i know but it get to you in the end
The staff were excellent as was the quality of food. Unfortunately the weather was poor during our stay and the roure tot he hotel from the lodges was waterlogged.
The rooms were ok. Hotel is very dated, my shower did not work and breakfast did not start until 7.30 meaning that as I was travelling on business and had an early start I could not eat breakfast. They did offer some toast however.
It was a delight - in a great situation in the woods which made it easy for doggy walking. I and my dog were made to feel very welcome
We wanted a hotel within walkling distance from theatre and restaurants that was affordable and comfortable. This hotel ticked all the boxes. Staff were friendly and helpful. Breakfast plentyful and good. Room clean and tidy. Price excellent. Would recommend it if you want to stay in town for a quick overnight stay.
The location of the hotel and the attached restaurant are the main attractions for us. This was our third stay at the Briar Court in as many months and we use it as a convenient stop-over enroute between Essex and Fife. There seem to have been computer related problems with our reservation made via Booking.Com in that the requested rear-facing ground floor rooms (2) were not available due to "weekend cleaning staff leaving some rooms unprepared." This minor issue was resolved to some extent but I got little sleep that night as the allocated room was facing the busy main road.
Staff very good, the hotel was spotless and the service was very good The Matress on the Bed in our room was very uncomfortable causing us to wake on and off all during the night
Easy to find and a very friendly reception Pillows were very uncomfortable. Radiator was either full on or full off, making room either too hot or too cold. No restaurant in hotel - only the Italian linked to the hotel, which had a 1 hour waiting time.
I wanted a comfortable room in pleasant surroundings and quality food. This is what I got. No.
We were very impressed with Chris on Reception. He could not have been more helpful in sorting out a room for us. All staff were very courteous and we enjoyed our stay with you.
The breakfast facilities were very good, staff were efficient and the full English breakfast was excellent Loose toilet seat. Faulty radiator valve,.
The staff were very helpful
Rooms really had a fresh smell The wifi internet connection only works at a few rooms, access is arranged in a old fashioned way.
Very nice hotel that is close to town and just off the motorway. The room was very clean and nice hot shower - all added up to a great nights sleep - topped off with a great breakfast.
The staff were very friendly and willing to joke around whilst being extremely efficient and eager to help. They went out of their way to do things for me, and did them very well. I had read online reviews from 2005 which said the hotel was grotty, etc., but either people have incredibly exacting standards or they have had refurbishment because the room looked just fine to me. 3 stars is entirely appropriate, I think.
Staff helpfull food good There was nothing I did not like at the hotel
Have stayed there many times, it is convenient for the railway station and Halifax centre, some rooms are better and quieter than others, but the hotel is usually ok.
The location was perfect, across from train station. The place was attractive and reasonably priced in the market. There was no access to the internet, and the hotel staff were uninformed about where such access could be found. Also, there was minimal information about local community services.
Reception staff very good. Breakfast staff bored and the whole breakfast experience was shoddy. This left a bad feeling after an otherwise very good stay.
The hotel was comfortable and clean with a gteat view just outside the front door. A gteat place to rest your head from beautiful Yorkshire sightseeing. The menu available in the bar was very limited and did not change day to day. It would have been good to have a couple of vegetarian options.
being left to our own devices and not being troubled un-necessarily by staff.
The staff were friendly and helpful. Rooms were dated but clean and functional.
Staff were overall very friendly. Location next to train station ideal for people arriving late. Food in the restaurant bar was good quality, although the choice was fairly limited. Hotel is in a fairly old building so there was no double glazing in the room and there was some noise from roads and neighbouring buildings.
The staff there were very friendly and helpfull.
the hotel was very central & on site parking was available, the breakfast was perhaps the best "english" I have ever experienced the room was a bit small & dated
the food was lovely and staff very friendly. n/a
very central, easy to find, food was very good and reasonably priced. drink prices were more expensive than other establishments around this area.
Chosen on the net No
The hotel met all of my expectations no
the meals were great
Plenty of good wholesome food in large portions. The room was far too hot and a little noisy.
very enjoyable. The hotel provided a fine menu for an evening meal but what impressed me was the attention to detail in the room. No
friendly staff who changed our room from the attic area to first floor rather old fashioned and dowdy
Friendly staff, good beer, big breakfast (couldn't eat it all), excellent location for Picturedrome i.e next to it! Car park is a bit tight but I managed to squeeze into the last space. Anyone arriving after me would have struggled.
staff really helpful and friendly standard of room service food disappointing especially the childrens food. Also the attitude of the ? hotel gym members a bit brusque.
The gym. Does not strike me as being particularly worthy of the difference in price when compared to a Premier Inn, which has more ambience in their Beefeaters/Brewers Fayre (attached) restaurants.
excellent accessand staff
I liked the swimming pool and suana facilities. The staff was also very friendly and the it was a very good value for money. the furniture and decoration (particularly of the room) was not up to the normal standards of Holiday inn.
Due to the fact that the swimming pool was closed and my collegues from work booked the same rooms at the same price but included breakfast and ours did not I rather hoped that a discount would have been offered
very clean, good situ off M62 food was Ok not brilliant
it was convenient for our travelling, clean tidy and friendly just that the leisure facilities were not open
The pool and gym facilities were an added bonus and very good. We got upgraded to a larger room but unfotunately it was a smoking room - to be fair, as we were only staying one night it wasn't a big deal but it would have been nice to have been asked if we minded being in a smoking room as we would have declined the upgrade.
Leisure facilities Price of breakfast!
Convenient, comfortable and plenty of free parking unfortunately there was a smell from the drains in our bathroom
Good staff, close to town centre, clean and comfortable
Easy access to the City centre, but still off the main track. The room/hotel was too hot for comfort.
Fantastic warm welcome by staff Loud behaviour of other residents at 11:30pm and 06:15am
Excellent power shower in the bathroom! Walking distance to town.
Friendly and helpful.
Larger than average sized modernised single room with upto date en suite facilities (not always found in Victorian Guest Houses) Front room overlooking busy road so some traffic noise disturbance late night/early morning although was not a particular problem.
Low cost My room was on the ground floor near reception. There was very little sound proofing so I was woken several times in the night. Choose a room further from reception.
I find the guest house comfortable,value for money easy to find and suitable for my needs at the time. Clean, quiet and comfortable
