We needed a night away to unwind so my wife asked me to find somewhere near the coast and what a find. Considering its only a 30 minute drive from home i'd never heard of it before, however we'll be back. We stayed in the Hall on the 3rd floor and found the rooms immaculate. From the time we arrived... More

We stayed for one night in this wonderful peaceful hotel setting. From the moment we checked in we were made to feel extremely welcome by the very attentive staff. Our room was spacious as was the bathroom. We used the spa during our stay, the swimming pool is fabulous. I would highly recommend the food, the breakfast was the best.... More

Everything we wanted for a short stay. Staff anticipated what we wanted before us without being intrusive. Felt like we had stayed with good friends who had luxurious comfortable home. We visited in foul weather and the spa took us back to the tropics. The dinner was the best foodwe have experieced anywhere

We stayed here for 1 nights in January 2015 for my birthday and we found everything about the hotel to be first class. The staff were all very friendly courteous and professional in their manner. The food was fantastic and we especially liked the informal approach of eating in the bar. We would highly recommend a stay here and we very... More

Beautiful luxury lodges with everything you could possibly want for. Lovely spa and swimming pool. Had some wonderful walks along Sandsend. Have booked to go back next New Year. Did notice that more lodges were being built, hopefully they won't overdevelop this beautiful retreat.

This hotel is in the most beautiful setting only a few hundred yards away from the sea although you can't actually see the sea as the hotel is in a small vally. The room was lovely with a balkony looking over the gardens and ensuite was light airy. The spa facilities were fantastic, beautiful pool with sauna and spa pool.... More

We booked a night on the recommendation of another dog owner. On booking we were told we'd have a room in the keep & to go straight there. No sign of life at the keep & told by reception that we had been moved elsewhere as the hotel wasn't full enough. On checking in we were given a list of... More

Another lovely stay at Raithwaite. The standard of the food, comfort and in particular the unbeatable service were all as good as ever, and it has to be said it was especially nice to enjoy them in the post-Christmas lull - having the spa virtually to yourself all afternoon is a rare luxury!

Now where do i begin. Lovely greeting & was briefly shown round the bar & restaurant area & likewise our prison cell in a building not connected to hotel. Made our way to the bar area (bizarre lay out) & ordered a bottle of Sauvignon Blanc. Arrived warm & requested ice bucket. Tip: store white wine in a chilled environment... More
