April marks the one-year anniversary of the opening of award-winning Manor House Lindley, a Huddersfield-based restaurant with rooms. The Georgian Manor underwent a £5.5 million restoration in the years leading up to launch and now boasts five food and beverage outlets, ten bedrooms, one luxury apartment, a gym, and a weddings and events space. Since opening, Manor House has gone from strength to strength through a string of successes.
The outlets saw a staggered launch, with The Clock Tower Bar and Lounge opening initially, followed by fine-dining space The Lantern Room and the accommodation in May. The events space The Coach House opened in June and was followed later in the summer by the bistro-style café The Kitchen and exclusive gym space The Studio.
Just after six months of opening, The AA awarded Manor House Lindley their coveted Five Gold Stars award for hospitality, a prestigious rating only offered to establishments with top class facilities and service. The venue went on to be awarded Best Hotel Interior at the Northern Design Awards for the stunning interior décor, designed and implemented by owner Sara Presley.
The hotel has been incredibly popular, locally and nationally, especially during the seasonal peaks during which Manor House upped its offering across Halloween, Christmas, Valentine’s Day and Mother’s Day. Events included live music, themed nights, special afternoon teas, party functions, and limited-edition menus.
Since opening its doors, Manor House Lindley has sold 4,500 afternoon teas, made over 20,000 cocktails and hosted 25 weddings. The venue has also created 50 jobs in the local area with more expected this year, as well as attracting high profile talent from luxury establishments all over the Country.
General Manager Mark Ayre commented, “It has been a fantastic year for Manor House, where we have surpassed all expectations and have been so well received by customers locally and nationally.
“We could not have achieved this without the excellent work put in and the service provided by the entire team, who go above and beyond every day in their work.”
