All that you really need, in a brilliant location
I got the impression that everything is carefully budgeted at this hotel; money is not thrown around on facilities, staffing or food.
But I have no argument with that, and certainly got the benefit in the price I paid. Everything that really matters was fine - a good-sized room with a comfortable bed and a good-sized en-suite bathroom with bath with shower over, and almost instant very hot water. The hotel is a pleasant 19th Century mill-owner's mansion house, more recently (in the post-WW2 days until about 1973) a part of the estate associated with David Brown tractors. I did not notice anything that was seriously run-down or decrepit. The room had a kettle and cups, plenty of sugar and tea bags, but just one sachet of coffee and one small tub of milk. The waste bin had not been emptied after the previous visitor, so it seems that part of the room service had not been carried out. Two pillows on the bed were one fat, one thin, which I thought good as it offers flexibility for the sleeper. Free wi-fi is a major consideration for me. It connected without fuss and worked well. The TV in the room may be small and possibly old by modern standards, but that is of no concern to me. There was a Corby trouser press, which I appreciated. Not everything on the breakfast menu was actually on offer - an apology was offered only for the lack of mushrooms - and portion control seemed to be the order of the day. I didn't ask for more toast or coffee - or for more coffee and milk for the bedroom. They would probably have been provided if I had asked, so I have no grounds for complaint. I don't like wastage either. The hotel was very quiet on the night I stayed and I was enjoying reading at the breakfast table when that was made harder for me by public-address muzack suddenly coming on - it coincided with the arrival of cleaners. Worse yet, just the one song was repeated over and over. Someone must be fixated on whatever it was - Elton John perhaps. But I didn't complain, so don't know what the response would have been if I had. The location, set well back from the main road (whch is itself fairly quiet) and in several acres of trees, flowers and lawns, is excellent. There is plenty of parking space. My brother and I undertook a moorland walk from the hotel, taking in a stretch of the Pennine Way. All in all, I expect it will prove one of the most enjoyable days of my year.
nice hotel, friendly staff, room rate is good value for money which include cooked breakfast.
Our stay at Durker Roods
A very nice and comfortable hotel offering competitive rates and excellent service.
Hotel was fine.
Will need transport if going into holmfirth itself. Not walkable. Taxis appear plentiful so obviously factor this in.

Good budget accomodation
Nice budget hotel.
I stayed here overnight while moving house, arrived very late, friendly staff, quick check in. Nice full English breakfast next morning (inc with price). Only downside was that room ( I had a single room up in the attic of the building) was showing its age. Bathroom was fine, but bed left my feet off the end and I'm only 5'9.
Fin for no frills or there might be better rooms available.
The TV was as old as the hotel and the background noise on meant it could be on quiet so as not to disturb the next room.
The Shower head had been dropped in the past and cracked so squirted out at a strange angle and there was not much pressure. the room was basic but clean and the staff very helpfull. I did report this to reception on my departure so hopefully these items will be sorted
