"Dinner at Holdsworth House Hotel was part of a perfect overnight stay in Halifax. The place oozes charm and history and this made for a delightful dining experience, at the hands of friendly but efficient staff throughout. The food was first rate, excellently presented and lovely quality with every course. Highly recommended." TripAdvisor 6 November, 2019
"This was our third stay at this lovely hotel. We had our evening meal in the restaurant as usual and think this was the best meal we've had there to date. All three courses were excellent. The wine list is very impressive, a couple of bottles were consumed! Compliments go to the kitchen staff." TripAdvisor April, 2019
