Raithwaite Hall is what you'd expect for a great hotel. Great accommodation, fantastic food and wonderful amenities, a pool and spa facilities with beautiful gardens (perfect for wedding photographers). The surrounding coast and countryside all add to this as a destination. What sets the hotel well above the norm is the staff, all of whom are friendly, efficient and their... More

The hotel and rooms are beautifully presented. We had a room with a balcony overlooking the beautifully kept gardens. We stayed as part of a pure indulgence package which was great 3 course dinner and full breakfast including a hour treatment in the spa which you could choose from a variety of treatments splitting your time between a couple of...

My fiancée and I stayed at raithwaite hall for our anniversary. We had previously booked accommodation elsewhere but on arrival this was of a very poor standard so I booked raithwaite hall last minute and wasn't let down. From the moment we arrived we were met by a very friendly and helpful concierge. Check in was extremely quick and efficient... More

The owners have spent millions creating this wonderful hotel. All the rooms, dining/bar areas are simply superb and it's a real haven of a place to de-stress and relax. Great pool, steam room and sauna, all virtually brand new. You can walk to the beach at Sandsend in 5 minutes. Whitby itself is a 10 minute drive or you could... More

We stayed for three nights while attending a wedding in Whitby. We were greeted and checked in by Peter who was wonderful, explaining the facilities and taking us to our room and showing us where everything was. We had tea and sandwiches in the conservatory which were lovely, the views of the gardens and the tinkling music from the piano... More

A very relaxing place to stay away from the crowds in Whitby. Gives easy access to further places in the area including Sandsend and Runswick Bay. Due to unfortunately bad weather during one day of our stay, I used the spa facilities and had a very relaxing treatment, with very knowledgeable staff. The breakfast in the main hotel (where we...

Booked night before knowing nothing about the hotel. It was absolutely fabulous from the minute we arrived to when we checked out. The staff were amazing and couldn't do enough for us, our room had a lovely balcony and the bathroom was bigger than some rooms we have stayed in. Breakfast was excellent and the evening meal superb.
