The Imperial Crown is a 19th-century former residence in the centre of Halifax in West Yorkshire. The town sits halfway between the Yorkshire Dales and Peak District national parks, and is around 30 minutes' drive from Leeds.

The "jaw-dropping" (The Guardian) Piece Hall, Calderdale Industrial Museum and Eureka! The National Children’s Museum are all less than five minutes' walk from the hotel, as is the Grade II-listed town hall. The 600-year-old medieval manor and grounds of Shibden Hall are around 25 minutes' walk away, while Bankfield Museum -- a Victorian mansion and park -- is around 20 minutes' walk away. Other sights, such as Scammonden Reservoir, Ogden Water Country Park and Wainhouse Tower -- the tallest folly in the world -- are within a 15-minute drive of the hotel.

For a day out in the Yorkshire Dales, we recommend a visit to Bolton Abbey on the banks of the River Wharfe, less than 40 minutes' drive north of the hotel. Its 30,000 acres are home to over 80 miles of footpaths and the ruins of a 12th-century priory. Alternatively, you can head south to explore the rolling hills of the Peak District National Park or walk the heritage trail at Marsden Moor Estate -- a National Trust site less than 25 minutes' drive away. Here you can also join the Pennine Way, a 270-mile walking route that runs from the Peak District to the Scottish borders.

The Crown Restaurant serves British classics made using local ingredients. Deluxe Rooms are more spacious than Standard Rooms -- they have a 2-storey duplex layout with a separate lounge and an upstairs bedroom. Wi-Fi is free.

Great staff & good food but our room was very cramped & noisy as people using late bar congregated underneath the window periodically and talked loudly until early hours.

Good food.
Other Comments
Good location for station, Piece Hall and town. Friendly reception. Nice restaurant and good food. Morning service a little slow and people had to ask for more cereal bowls and cups. As its on a busy junction, the traffic noise can be a nuisance and wooden Windows difficult to close completely. Good deal. No lift.
