Spotlight on The Wool Merchant Hotel

Spotlight on The Wool Merchant Hotel

With so much to see and do in and around Halifax, especially at Christmas, it seems a shame not to stay a night or two.  The Wool Merchant Hotel makes the perfect base. In fact, the warm Yorkshire welcome and wealth of facilities here might make it hard to leave!

Conveniently close to transport links as well as all the great shops and venues of Halifax town centre, the Wool Merchant couldn’t occupy a better location.  What’s more, there are fabulous destinations nearby in Calderdale too, not to mention all the beautiful nature and outdoor activities provided by the stunning Pennine landscape all around. 

The hotel itself is modern, clean and comfortable, even though it occupies a characterful and world-renowned wool trading centre built in Victorian times. Rooms are stylishly decorated and all en-suite, each with a Smart TV, fast broadband and Lavazza coffee and fresh tea available round the clock.  Anyone here for work or organising a group can take advantage of conference and meeting facilities for up to 100 guests, as well as the option of hosting a special event.  

If you’re tired from seeing the sites, the hotel has its own restaurant serving dishes made using fresh, locally-sourced produce.  There are two comfy lounge bars on site here too, one open to all guests and one for private hire, but both serving a tantalising range of beers, wines and spirits.  You can even take your drinks to the beer garden if you’d like a spot of fresh Yorkshire air. 

Whatever brings you to this beautiful and historic neck of the woods, the Wool Merchant’s staff will take good care of you, and that goes for couples, colleagues, groups of friends or just a single traveller. Repeat guests even get a discount, and with comfort, facilities and hospitality like this, we reckon there must be plenty of people who do come back!
