This was our second time at the raithwaite estate and it didn't disappoint second time round. We stayed with our shitzu alfie in a courtyard deluxe room and it was just perfect. The staff were so friendly and very efficient from check in to check out we had no complaints. We had breakfast in our room both mornings and evening... More

My mum and I went to this hotel for a two night get away to relax and celebrate the end of a tough year of teaching. I have to say that I was not disappointed with the quality of this hotel. We had a dinner, bed and breakfast package and stayed in the part of the hotel called 'The Keep'... More

This was our 4th visit to Raithwaite and sadly probably our last. There are some good points: the restaurant in the evening is very well run by helpful staff ( although the wine is over priced) and the quality of the food very good. The gardens are immaculate. Sadly much of the rest of the service is very amateurish; very... More

My wife loved the pool and spa. I just loved the peacefulness of the grounds and surrounding area. The staff is top-notch asking the questions that we forgot to. Amenities are also high class. All around great stay.

We were stayed the weekend for a wedding - the concierge and reception were very welcoming and attentive to our needs as we had a young puppy with us. The last minute nail service in the spa was welcomed and the staff very friendly.

Couldn't find what we were looking for searching hotels in Whitby. However, searched under "luxury hotels in Whitby area" and this gem came up. The hotel is situated in its own extensive grounds and the gardens are magnificent. Although we chose the basic "club" room this was very well appointed. Dined in the Brace restaurant- the food was imaginative (lamb... More

My partner had been given an 'Afternoon Tea for Two" gift voucher for her birthday at the hotel. Having looked forward to it, it was a real let down, we were put in a room with no atmosphere, tea duly arrived (no extra water), later some cut sandwiches (not many and some with crusts on) / scones (not fruit scones)/...

Booked a day in the spa. Has a lovely time. Treatments were great with very friendly therapists. The pool area was lovely not too busy. Gym was small and way to hot. Air conditioning needs sorting out. Everywhere was clean and tidy with very helpful staff. I would definitely return

This hotel is a little pricy but it was worth it for a little treat. Touches like chilled glasses in the bar, attentive staff, relaxing pool area, lovely grounds and the best eggs ever at breakfast left us feeling relaxed and looked after. We stayed in the keep which was nice as a big wedding in the main hotel although... More

Raithwaite was this year's destination for an annual spa break with a couple of friends- what a fantastic place. We were booked onto the Pure Indulgence package and from the moment of our arrival we were made to feel very welcome. Particular thanks to concierge Richard who was particularly attentive and very quickly and efficiently sorted a slight mix up... More
