Best Hotels in Huddersfield

Huddersfield Hotels

As part of the burgeoning popularity of Yorkshire, Huddersfield – a once gritty northern town – is undergoing somewhat of a transformation. From an historic industrial textile centre to a charming visitor’s destination in the heart of the Pennines, Huddersfield’s a great base if you fancy exploring Yorkshire’s impressive moorland, including the well-trodden Pennine Way, or chugging along the Huddersfield Narrow Canal, a 20-mile stretch of restored waterway, in a traditionally colourful canal boat.

Things to see

You’ll need your hiking boots on a trip to Huddersfield, as it’s a perfect base for exploring the surrounding wild Yorkshire countryside. Nearby Marsden Moor Estate – run by the National Trust – offers 3,500 acres of moorland ranging from grassy paddocks crisscrossed by dry-stone walls to rugged craggy peaks and bird-filled bog land. At Wessenden Valley you can pick up the Pennine Way while admiring a series of 4 glacial-looking reservoirs, while Pule Hill offers a chance for stunning sunset photos across the windswept grassy landscape. For something more sedate head to the Huddersfield Narrow Canal for a boat ride through the Standedge Tunnel – the longest canal tunnel in Britain. Little ones will enjoy the endlessly echoing stone walls – perfect for a few ghost stories. For sports lovers, Huddersfield’s place as one of the founders of Rugby League should be enticement enough to catch a Giants match at Galpharm Stadium.

Hotels in Huddersfield

There are plenty of accommodation choices in Huddersfield, from cheap and cheerful chain hotels to large country house hotels and small-scale guesthouses. Amenities vary greatly from place to place so it’s best to check before you book, though even small guesthouses tend to offer WiFi as standard. For something really special head to a boutique B&B offering 3 or 4-star amenities with a stylish personal touch. If you need a cheap hotel you’re best to seek out a traditional inn – or pub with rooms – or find one of the larger well-known chains who always have availability.

Where to stay

You’ll find much of Huddersfield’s hotels and guesthouses along the main roads from the M62 to the ring road around the town centre, especially the larger hotels and chains. For those wanting to be in the thick of it – or near the bus and train stations – look for accommodation inside the ring road, but bear in mind that parking can be trickier and you might find it a bit noisier, especially when the bars and pubs kick out on Friday and Saturday night. Outside of town, an array of country retreats will welcome you with snug rooms and breath-taking scenery.

How to get to Huddersfield

Huddersfield’s neo-classical 19th century railway station makes for a grand entrance to the town. Trains arrive here from many northern cities including Manchester, Leeds, Newcastle, York, and Liverpool. It’s also possible to get buses from the major cities, though this tends to be a slower means of transport. If heading to the countryside or local towns and villages, bus or car is your best means of travel, though a car will give you more freedom. For those travelling from London a good option is to get a direct coach to avoid indirect train services.
