Stayed at the White Swan whilst visiting family in Halifax over Christmas. Reception area and lounge beautifully decorated for Christmas. Staff were extremely warm and friendly and room was very cosy, welcoming and comfortable. Parents also had same experience in August. Highly recommend this hotel. Thank you to the team.

The hotel is in a central position in town. We had a loft room on the 3rd floor which was very nice and clean. Heating and bathroom very good. Lovely breakfast and staff very helpful and friendly. Only fault was the lift so slow.

Great location, really good value for money and all the staff are very friendly. When we arrived at reception we were met by very friendly staff. Our room was clean and more than adequate for our needs. We had breakfast on the Sunday morning and at £7.50 it was good value. Overall a very pleasant and good VFM hotel.
