Convenient location in the centre of Halifax, easy walking distance of shops, theatres, bars, etc. Lovely old building from the outside, but less lovely old inside. Our room had a new-ish bathroom (already showing signs of wear and tear) but the room itself had quite a tired decor, low-ish quality furniture and a nasty stained carpet. We paid about £45 per night for a double room (without breakfast), so it was a fair price for what we got. Reception staff were super-nice, though the housekeeping team didn't do our room on the middle day of our stay.
Parking is an issue - we would happily have paid the £7 per night fee for the hotel car park if it had guaranteed us a place to come and go as we wanted during the day, but apparently the car park is some sort of 'cage' and you have to say in advance when you want your car out and there's no guarantee of a place later that evening. On street parking spaces aren't so easy to find, though larger public car parks are available once you know where to look.
A perfectly adequate hotel - but I wouldn't book it for a special event or a romantic weekend.
