Positive Reviews

Great for access to town centre.

The Wool Merchant is in a fantastic location less than five-minutes from the train station and only a matter of minutes from Halifax town centre. It is very easily accessible from the M62 as well, making the hotel a viable option for business travellers i

Spacious, bright rooms.

The Wool Merchant is housed in a grand old mill building, so this means the rooms are big and spacious, making for a more comfortable visit. This includes the bathrooms, which are above average size and decorated in a modern fashion.

Peaceful location.

Despite being so close to the town centre and train station, The Wool Merchant is in a quiet location just away from the main road and near to the Halifax Minster. It is perfectly suitable for guests looking for a quiet weekend away.

Negative Reviews

Bar not always open when expected.

The bar opening hours are a bit hit and miss. The opening hours can depend on demand from guests. It is worth noting though that Halifax town centre is nearby and has a reputation for having many good pubs to choose from.

Parking is not free.

Plentiful parking is available near The Wool Merchant, but it is not free as was formerly the case. However, only a small fee applies for parking and it is charged on a day-by-day basis.

Wi-Fi does not always work.

Wi-Fi is free throughout The Wool Merchant, but given the nature of this old stone building it is not a surprise to find that the Wi-Fi connection can be temperamental depending on which part of the hotel you are in.
