“Excellent in every way”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 March 2012

Stayed at Holdsworth House for a couple of nights in February with friends.
We all thought that the hotel was superb,we ate in the restaurant both evenings & had a really good meal .
The general ambience was very good with enormous character in the 17th century public rooms whilst the modern bedrooms were very well equipped.
We will certainly return when we visit this part of Yorkshire.

Loved this hotel, it was very cozy and the staff were really friendly. Loved the log fire and the old country house style. Food was also amazing and loved the little touches, a glass of wine on arrival :-) Keep up the good work....will definitely stay here again!

The Holdsworth House Hotel is my preferred option when staying in this area.
I find the staff very considerate and helpful and go that extra bit to make the stay enjoyable.
Access is good with excellent parking.
Free wifi with good signal.
My meals have always been of a good standard.
Breakfast is good although, for my personal circumstances, it can be a bit slow.
Because I am a frequent patron, I have a particular room which I like and they always try and accommodate me in that room. Can't say better than that for service.
Overall, a first class hotel.

Stayed for friends wedding. Booked a double room and they would put in two z beds for our children. When we arrived we were up-graded to two rooms with adjoining door which was very unexpected and a lot more comfortable. Thank you

We stayed at Holdsworth House on the 3rd of March and I booked the Ultimate Proposal Package.

To put it simply, I can't believe the hotel don't promote this more.

The hotel has character, it looks terrific from both the inside and the outside.The room we had was spacious, clean and unusual being over two floors!

As part of the proposal package you get afternoon tea (which was lovely and she absolutely loved it, particularly with the crackling of the open fire), a manicure and a three course meal (off the a la carte menu) and on our package we also got the private use of the Gazebo. It was very romantic with a candle lit path guiding the way to the Gazebo. The meal was good quality, and the music and the champagne was spot on.

What really worked for me though was the service. Brad looked after us all day, including serving us in the Gazebo, he was very accommodating in terms of specific requests and he was friendly, attentive but not overly helpful. It was pitched very well.

I think for what you get it is very reasonably priced and given there was a wedding on at the same time the service levels were very high.

I couldn't recommend this enough for guys wanting to propose.
