Good Hotel Guide Review

Simon and Caitlin Heaton’s refurbished 17th-century inn stands on a bend of a quiet country lane in the wooded Shibden valley. Cheery bedrooms mix original features with updated style: pick a room with a wall of windows, perhaps, or another with a standalone bath through a stone archway. All rooms are supplied with teas and coffees, towelling robes, a DVD-player (and access to a DVD library). Chef Darren Parkinson specialises in Yorkshire steaks grilled in the charcoal oven, but there’s much more to please: early-bird menus, Friday ‘fizz and chip’ nights, summertime seafood and burgers in the ‘posh shed’ on the terrace. Shibden Mill’s own brew is a must-have in the ‘bustling’ oak-beamed bar. 2 miles NE of Halifax.

Guest comments

'Tucked away in a steep sided valley near Halifax, not somewhere I'd normally think of going for a holiday! It was great. Although it's 300 years old, the bedrooms are modern and comfortable and well away from the lively bar area. Our superior room had a huge TV, comfortable bed and a couple of chairs. Plenty of space;plenty of storage space. The bathroom was small but modern. Food is excellent; some portions nouvelle in style but my beef wellington came in what might be called “Yorkshire portions”. Breakfast had a very good fruit selection and a wide range of cooked options. The staff were all efficient and friendly. ' - Peter Anderson - July, 2017
'Great rooms with individual style; lovely breakfast, and the staff really cared. ' - Colin Searle - November, 2013
