We stayed here to be close to Huddersfield - but a little further out for peace and quiet. The New Hobbit is still having additional rooms built and has obviously undergone considerable refurbishment. Our room(#1) overlooked the car park but was completely quiet - I guess if a wedding celebration was underway and you were not invited, it could be... More

A large group of us stayed here over the weekend for a family wedding. The rooms are tastefully decorated and spacious and the beds are fantastic - so comfortable. Breakfast was lovely and the service generally was excellent - the staff are all quite young, friendly and efficient. One of our party had a dress disaster on the day of... More

The hotel has most of the attributes to make this a good review, but unfortunately we arrived to find no heating. This seems to be an ongoing issue and not something they are trying to solve asap. A small heater did warm our room, but not the bathroom. Public spaces and hallways were chilly, and it was not a particularly... More

After an initial move due to lack of wifi in room and provision of a heater as the boiler was broken to part of the hotel we had a lovely stay- staff were so helpful, food in restaurant good and well priced. New rooms are being added so expect some disruption any technical problems should be resolved then hopefully.

Attended a wedding, the place is a little tired, and in need of a refurbishment. (windows dated, peeling paint, damp) An extension is being build at the present so this may be on the cards.The rooms were clean and tidy, the beds very comfortable, the staff friendly. The food on mass is always difficult, nice. Wheel chair access is limited,... More

Gorgeous wedding venue. Attended a relatives wedding, beautiful. Lovely little personal touches. Staff were very helpful and friendly. Rooms very clean. The only downside was the disabled access, none. Anybody that has mobility issues definitely a NO. Apparently they are building new disabled rooms so hopefully this will solve the problem.
