Halifax is no longer one of England’s leading wool production centres but it is home to a diversity of industries. And it is also home to a number of historic landmarks, family attractions, sporting events, performing arts centres and a myriad of other points of interests. As a result, it attracts a large number of visitors, both business and leisure travellers. What is more, their number is steadily rising. And so is the demand for accommodation, both luxury hotels and inexpensive but decent rooms. Some of the most popular hotels in Halifax include:
Holdsworth House Hotel & Restaurant. It is housed in an impressive Jacobean era (1567-1625) manor which has been owned and managed by the Pearson family since the early 1960s. It is located about 3 miles from the bustling town centre, offering a perfect retreat from the city hustle and bustle. But at the same time, the hotel offers easy access to Halifax as well as to Bradford, Leeds and Huddersfield. Besides for its fantastic location, the Holdsworth House Hotel & Restaurant is also popular with travellers for its luxury rooms and facilities which can suit the needs of even the most discerning guests.
The Tower House Hotel. This is another family owned and run hotel which is located outside the town centre. Despite that, it is one of the most highly rated hotels in Halifax; it largely owes its popularity and reputation to its beautifully decorated rooms that feature all the modern conveniences and comforts, friendly and professional staff, and outstanding service. Also one of Halifax’s most popular wedding and conference venues, The Tower House Hotel is located just off the M62.
Premier Inn Halifax Town Centre. Many Halifax visitors who are looking for accommodation in or nearby the town centre decide to stay at Premier Inn Halifax Town Centre. Like its name suggests, the hotel is located in the very heart of Halifax but besides for its location, it is also one of the most popular hotels in the town for its comfortable rooms, excellent service and pocket-friendly prices.
Halifax is a minster town in West Yorkshire which is home to slightly more than 80,000 people. The former wool production centre is today best known for the confectionery/food industry and banking, with retail, tourism and a number of other sectors rapidly gaining in importance as well.
