Extra quilts if needed in the colder weather. nice location. Pearl and her husband were very nice people very welcoming. Nothing was too much trouble at all. Breakfast was very good, cooked to order so was hot when it arrived. it was served from 7am onwards, nice to be able to choose the time to eat to suit yourselves. We were given a parking permit which enabled us to park in the street for free. We are going back in a few weeks for another weekend stay.” Wendy, 29 Jul 2020

“ The property was a converted house and as such it felt homely. In each room there was a tv, a kettle with tea and coffee and a microwave. There was a wardrobe in the rooms with coat hangers and there was a fridge in the double room. Each room has a sink in addition to the toilet and shower facilities adjacent to the rooms. Pearl was fantastically welcoming and looked after us very well. She showed us around and told us how to order a cooked breakfast for the morning. The breakfast facilities were more than adequate and the cooked breakfast was beautiful. I would be more than happy to stay here again ” Katie, 17 Dec 2019

Tea and Coffee is in abundance (and although I have not have a breakfast due to working hours It smells good!) Bed very, very comfortable, my room is a good size for a single guest that just needs a room for the night (or in my case 15 nights) TV and drinks.

“ Great location, great hosts. Perfect for visiting the Piece Hall. We stayed at the guesthouse as we were attending a music concert at the Piece Hall. The guest house was walking distance to the venue and the town centre, which was excellent. Pearl and David were lovely hosts and we’d definitely stay there again if we were attending a gig. Although we had a room with a shared bathroom, we were only sharing with one other person and we never even saw them. There’s free parking right outside and there’s a beautiful canal to the back. Great place! ” Georgina, 31 May 2018

“Dear Pearl and Dave, I am very sorry that I am too stupid to fill in the comment in the trip advisor about our amazing stay in your guest house. We arrived a little late back in Düsseldorf and now we are back in work but still thinking about you, the nice talking in the morning with you and the lovely guest James, your good breakfast and, and, and.. We hope to see you again either in your guest house or in Düsseldorf "when your family and your guests give you the allowance to make a trip to Germany". Best regards to you from Regina and Fritz” 24 Oct 2016
“Nice place to bunk up and great breakfast. Upgraded the room for free. Breakfast was lovely.” Wizz, 24 Oct 2016
“I’ve stayed one night at Kirk Lea Guest House for work-related meeting at Calderdale Royal Hospital in Halifax this weekend. My first time in Halifax. I chose this place mainly for the location. It’s right cross a road from the hospital. It has a family-home-feel. But it’s very quiet in the property. One of the lady’s daughters(very pretty little girl) brought me an iron when I needed it and helped me with my luggage when I left. It took me a 5-minute-bus-ride from Halifax train station as I travelled from London on train. I met other guests who also came to visit the hospital, doctors and a nurse. This is the perfect place to stay if you are visiting Calderdale Royal Hospital. And breakfast was perfect for me. Upon arrival, the lady gave me a form with list of choices for breakfast including full English. You can tick the ones you want for breakfast and what time you want. I stayed in a single room with a private bathroom which was spacious, clean with shower gel, shampoo, a large towel ready for use. The room was basic but has everything you need for comfortable stay. I paid with cash as I thought it better for a small business like this place. If you want a swanky hotel, this place is not for you but if you want a friendly warm place with good value for money, this is the perfect place in Halifax. I will definitely choose this place on my next visit to Halifax.” Christine. 26 Sept 2016
“Thank you for everything, you have been absolutely fabulous. Thanks David for the guidance. You will be missed – Like my second home. Love & regards. ” Saumya, stayed over 6 month period. Aug 2016
“Nice welcome, friendly service......own bathroom, comfortable bed, lovely English breakfast with excellent choices. Staff went out of their way to make stay comfortable. Kirk Lea is a great place to stay if you require a good night sleep and a good breakfast!” Heather, 17 May 2016
“Just want to say a big thanks to pearl and david because they was fantastic and very welcoming, the breakfast was amazing an it was very comfortable and peaceful stay” Chris, 25 Apr 2016
“The proprietors did all they could to give a good welcome. Breakfast was amazing and very hot. I thought I paid already via Booking.com, so was unprepared to pay on departure. Needed to go get cash out. No probs, will def return.....with cash next time.” Sue, 23 Apr 2016
“Small but "perfectly formed" room with a private bathroom (not en suite). You will get a warm welcome from Pearl and personal attention. Good traditional breakfast freshly made on order previous night. Busy Huddersfield road did not seem to impact altho' you are aware of traffic noise. Parking permit given for free to a quiet road next to B&B. Stone's throw from Halifax and beautiful countryside all around. Shopping available in Elland nearby. Would recommend for a good value stay in the area.” EF, 12 Feb 2016
“Pearl made me a bacon sandwich to go as I couldn't stay for breakfast” KL, 28 Jan 2016
“Good value for money and most importantly a great breakfast.” Philip, 12 Jan 2016
"Kirk Lea Guest House is the best B&B I have stayed at in a very long time and would recommend them to anyone looking to stay in Halifax. Breakfast is amazing. Pearl and her family are always friendly and accommodating." 28 Oct 2015
“I had a very pleasant stay in a comfortable bed the room was very clean and the breakfast excellent, two things struck me as very good I had indigestion one morning and the lady gave me something for it right away and on my last day she made me some cheese sandwiches instead of breakfast for my journey home so I highly recommend the Kirk Lea” Ian B, Oct 2015
“This isn't a business traveller's dream. Kirk Lea is a well-loved, perfectly imperfect higgledy-piggledy B&B. Nothing matches and that's why I loved it! Staying here was like staying at your favourite Aunty's house. You can feel the love in the place. For me, this is exactly what I was looking for. David and Pearl are genuinely lovely people and give a very warm welcome to guests. What more could you want?! Bobs, 20 Oct 2015
“Great warm friendly welcome, warm clean rooms superb hot freshly cooked breakfast, other breakfasts available. Landlady only to eager to help. TV & WiFi in every room free.
Parking available, main bus route . Makes a cracking pot of tea . Glad I took a photo of this guest house early hours of the morning on the way to my temp' place of work. Stay went into 3rd week.” Paul B, August 2015
“On arrival I was given a very warm welcome by Pearl the owner, she very kindly carried my case upstairs to my room.
The room allocated to me was a small single with a private bathroom, but Pearl told me a en-suite would be available the next day.
Having booked in I went off to visit my son and when I went back to the hotel, Pearl said the en-suite would be available on my first night.
The en-suite that I was then given was a large double room which was well furnished and very light and airy.
The breakfast was really good and set me up for the rest of the day.
I was given a permit so was able to park in the street outside at no cost.
Now I have found somewhere reasonable to stay in Halifax I will be able to visit my family more often” Alan H, July 2015
“Pearl was very helpful and the location and parking was excellent bed comfy too tired to hear any noise lol what a breakfast it was the best I have had in years ” John, 23 June 2015
“I stayed for two nights in a comfortable, quiet single room at the top of the house, with kettle, microwave and wifi provided. Pearl was very welcoming and also really helpful throughout my stay. She makes a generous breakfast the way you like it, and she's got her own supplier for bacon and black pudding! The weather was gorgeous when I was there, but for rainy days there are stacks of novels to choose from. There are bus stops almost outside the door to take you into Halifax in about 15 minutes, or out to the other towns in the area. I would definitely stay at Kirk Lea again, not just for a weekend but as a base from which to explore Calderdale” Noelle, June 2015
“Pearl & Dave run a very good B & B, we were met and shown our very nice spacious room on arrival. The room was clean and well presented with a large on suit. We spent 2 comfortable nights and we very pleased that there is a selection of buses that we were able to make use on the door step. Being able to order our breakfasts the night before was great and ensured that we had exactly what we wanted, all perfectly cooked just as we like it. We will certainly stay again. Thank you Pear & Dave” Paul H, June 2015
“Pearl was very welcoming and nothing was too much, room was nice and fresh and just what I needed after a busy day in the Fax. The access to parking was brilliant helped by a parking permit, would definitely stay there again. Finally the breakfast was EPIC :)” Dicky, June 2015
“Pearl and Dave who run this B&B are an extremely kind and welcoming couple who really treat their guests in a very warm and hospitable way. It is worth staying here just for their excellent cooked English breakfasts (which were so plentiful that they lasted me through most of each day). The location is handy - especially for visitors to Calderdale Hospital - although admittedly it is on a busy main road. I think the value for money is fair. Admittedly the rooms could do with a bit of work here and there but I know for a fact that they are working on refurbishments whenever the rooms are vacant for long enough. As far as I know, Pearl & Dave have only been running the place for the last two years or so and they are certainly gradually making the necessary improvements. They are both very hard-working and kind-hearted people.” HB, February 2015
“You’re the best. Thank you Pearl and David. Best Wishes” Mr & Mrs York, 30 May 2015
