On arrival we were greeted by happy smiling reception staff, and were directed to our rooms. We were able to park our cars safely within the castle walls near to our accommodation. Our rooms in St Francis building were spacious and clean. Beds were very firm and comfortable. Our meal on the Friday night was served in the Garden Room... More

There was no choice in the egg department it was scrambled or nothing!! Our evening meal was a set meal and it was disasterous, the... More

I have been visiting Whitby for the last 20 years but had not discovered Sneaton Castle until this weekend, when I came across it whilst making a last minute booking. I'm so glad I booked there. From the moment I turned into the driveway I was impressed by the majestic grounds and lovely buildings. The gardens are beautifully kept and... More

The bonus of staying here was the fact that we were able to worship with the nuns in the adjacent convent. The weekend was very much enjoyed as a result. The accommodation was clean and spacious, the staff helpful and welcoming. Breakfast offered a good selection but we chose to eat in the town during the evenings. We intend to... More

There were 20 of us, some in the single rooms with shared facilities, and others sharing in the en-suite rooms. All the rooms were clean and comfortable. The facilities were great, good food, and above all incredibly helpful and friendly staff.

What a lovely place ... Right on the edge of Whitby, with lovely gardens and a Jubilee walk through part of the land and farm land. Breakfast brilliant En suite in St Francis .. A separate building .. Walls a bit thin, but very clean, well appointed etc. Tremendously good value.

We stayed here as part of a big group in May 2013. The en suite room was large and had all mod cons. I was full board and all the meals were absolutely delicious. The staff were always warm, friendly and welcoming. Thinking of booking another trip soon.

Beautiful location. Lovely grounds. Fantastic food and great staff. HOWEVER, my room was absolutely tiny - the smallest room I've ever been given anywhere. The worst thing was that the walls seemed to be just constructed of thin plasterboard. Every time someone went to the loo in the night, I could hear everything. The noise of people using the bathroom... More

Thank you for your kind comments about the staff and food. This weekend was very busy with a conference which I hope you enjoyed. All rooms were booked out in the main house, which is four star hostel accommodation so you did possibly get the smallest room. The hostel accommodation used to be a girls boarding school so we do...
