Good overall
A lovely spacious house with an air of luxury. Fabulous master bedroom but three of the other bedrooms are small. In the one other reasonable sized room, the mattress did not fit the bed properly and a member of our party found it a little uncomfortable. The sitting room is enormous! Fitted us all in comfortably and was very relaxing. The older members of our party struggled to get out of tbe sofas which are very low and deep. Kitchen was great to cook in, well equipped on the whole, but for a house that sleeps 10 why are there only 5 dessert spoons, two stools at the island, and only 4 chairs in the breakfast room? Surrounding area was very nice. Terrific walk up to Castle Hill for stunning views. The pool is fantastic. Our kids were down there three times a day! Gym room less inviting as it was suffering a bit from condensation. Our party of 10 ranged in age from 14 to 85. On reflection I'd say the house was better suited to the two younger of the three generations, but we all had a really good week.

The house was even better than expected, photos don't do it justice! Loved the pool & social areas!

Clouds Hill was absolutely perfect for our group of 10 girls, we had a fab time. The pool and gym area really made it that extra bit special, the size of the lounge, TV and beautiful fire, really added to our stay and made us feel cosy and right at home. The bed's were incredibly comfortable and there were plenty of bathrooms/showers/toilets even for 10 girls all getting ready at the same time for a night out!! Location was easy to find and only a short car journey into the centre of Huddersfield, making it an ideal location for both staying in and going out. Overall fantastic weekend in a lovely house.
Miss Hodgson

Clouds Hill is a beautiful home and a real treat to stay in. It was very well kitted out and the beds were very comfy. It was a real luxury week, with the pool and jacuzzi baths, loads of space and all the mod cons. It is well positioned for York, Leeds, the Moors and Halifax. We hope to go back in the future.

NOT what it says on the tin.
I was reluctant to post a negative review, but have monitored reviews for this property and as we were so terribly disappointed feel that future guests deserve to see both sides. We booked this as 'luxury' - it really wasn't. The house was, once, built as a luxury property, but lack of care and investment, not to mention cleaning, has left it in a poor condition. Lights were out, doors didn't close, bin liners didn't fit in bins, tea towels and towels, bin liners etc were not provided. None of the gym equipment worked - it was rusted and dangerous. The whirlpool bath jets hadn't been cleaned and black and green gunk filled the bath when turned on. The 'decking' was full of water as the drainage didn't work on the balcony, and if you stepped onto it filthy water and cigarette butts swamped the decking. The bar b q had never been cleaned and was full of rubbish - the decking at the back was full of moss and unuseable, the blinds at the windows were damaged and didn't close properly - one window had no blinds at all! Dining chairs were bent and unuseable, there was insufficient table cutlery and not enough plates for the entire party - despite being less than the number the property is advertised for. We were instructed to remove our bedding, and found stained and filthy mattresses. It was, in all a very disappointing experience, which left us angry at the advertising for the property which we felt was misleading. To be fair we did receive a part refund - none of our complaints appeared unexpected by the property owner, and I suspect we weren't the first to raise them. If you are looking for a luxury property this isn't it.
