6/10 Good

Room with balcony, was comfortable with nice decor, lovely bathroom and shower, extremely clean! Not a lot of room but nice view. Shame about the food, breakfast was ok but dinner was very disappointing, both starter and main were overcooked and dry as sticks without any flavour, desserts were of better standard. Staff were friendly and Helpful, nothing was a trouble.

One night in Gods Country…
Had a one night stopover for a gig in Halifax, staying in a superior double room w/balcony overlooking the valley in front. Room was perfect, clean & quiet, view was awesome. Welcome was friendly and bar was open and accommodating which is always a good thing, right? Being as location is abit off the beaten track we decided to eat in the hotel restaurant. This is where things fell apart a little. Whilst the restaurant wasn’t really busy we still had to wait over 40mins for our food, mainly due to miscommunication between the lady serving and the kitchen…15mins went by before we were told our meal order wasn’t even available and had to start again. When the food finally arrived, it wasn’t really worth the wait and never worth the price they were charging. A small portion of belly pork served with dry rice and withered Asian style greens priced at £17 with a side of sorry looking chips taking it to £20 for one plate. The meal quality and service standard didn’t justify the price. Same could be said for all the other meals ordered in our party too. It also appeared that the lady serving was trying to hold most of the early evening restaurant service together by herself until delays started overwhelming her and more staff then appeared. Breakfast service seemed abit lacklustre the next morning too. Same lady on her own again and delays with replenishing hot food. Even so, for one night it was fine and I’d recommend a stay but fingers crossed if you do eat here.

Enjoyable stay - Julie & Rachel
The Hobbit is lovely, staff very friendly and helpful. Good yummy, accommodation very comfortable, had a ground floor, double room, had a large shower, very spacious room, slept sound. Views stunning. I have mobility issues, but managed ok, despite steps to bar & restaurant. However, apparently it is wheelchair accessible if you go around the back, but wouldn’t like to keep doing this, if it was raining. I would definitely stay here again. Ideal location if you are visiting Halifax, just a short car journey away. We stayed her, as we went to a concert at the Victoria Theatre.

Comfy hidden gem
Stayed here when we went to a concert in Huddersfield. Service was great everything seemed easy and straight forward, but this is due to the hard work and effort that goes on behind the scenes. Lovely comfy bed, spacious room, helped us book a taxi and find cash points etc… great breakfast too.
