"Better than read reviews!!!!!"
Looked for hotel close to Halifax so we could visit family and friends and attend a christening on Sunday morning. The hotel is just outside the town and in beautiful countryside. On arrival the bar was busy but we were delt with quickly and politely by the staff and shown to our room with minimum fuss. The room was an attic room with sloping ceiling with a small window overnight the hills. The room was generally clean as was he bathroom and a large comfortable bed. Read less
Likes:
The food served in the bar was very good and service for food and drink also better than the reviews had suggested. We did have a wait for our meals but we were told about this when ordering.

"Beautiful location but disappointing facilities."
We stayed for 2 nights, the room was quite small due to the sloping ceiling which made moving around the room a little difficult as we had to take it in turns to walk around the bed. Spent considerable time out visiting friends therefore the room size was not such a problem. The tv in the room did not work and when we complained about it we were told there was no signal due to the weather which might have been a plausable excuse if hadn't been a lovely clear sunny day with a light breeze. Read less
Likes:
The location was beautiful overlooking the hills. The food was nice but a limited menu.
Dislikes:
Tv not working then being given an unbelieveable excuse. Problem never rectified. Drinks in bar very pricey compared to other pubs in the area.

"The double bed was two singles pushed together this was so uncomfortable it hurt"
The bed was so uncomfortable, considering the price you're paying and the fact we booked a double, it was a bit of a joke. The staff were lovely and I can't fault the restaurant food as it was stunning. But we both had bad backs the next morning after a horrible cheap mattress with a huge groove down the middle where the two mattresses were pushed together Read less
Likes:
I'd recommend the food, staff and atmosphere...just not the bed
Dislikes:
Beds...see above

"poor quality for high price"
The "room with a view of the valley" was of three dustbins. The food was over priced and service was very slow for a very empty bar.
The beds were uncomfortable and the service and breakfast in the morning (even down to the child bacon, instant coffee and miserable waitress) weren't worth paying for.
I stay in a lot of hotels and B&B's and this is my first ever poor rating.
I wouldn't recommend it, obviously

The scenery around the bar is stunning, and some of the villages are a delight. Read less
Likes:
The views from some of the other rooms
Dislikes:
Beds, our view which was one of the reasons for choosing the place, service (perhaps she isn't a Sunday morning person)
