We stayed in a three bedroomed cottage. It was exceptionally well furnished and in a beautiful setting. All the rooms were beautifully laid out with very high quality furniture and all the cooking / dining equipment you could need. It really was stunningly beautiful, very, very posh. It was cleaned daily with fresh towels left each day. A turn down... More

Stayed here for one night over the Easter break, the hotel is lovely, modern and clean. We had an executive room and it was very spacious, the turn down service was nice touch and we received a bag of little Easter eggs which was very nice. We had dinner at the hunters bar which was very nice and there was... More

Stopped over for 3 nights, stayed just down from the main reception in room 403, so no distance at all to walk, and managed to park the car just round the corner, so worked out very well. The rooms seem slightly odd as the bedroom is upstairs with a lounge and bathroom downstairs, but very comfortable. Stayed for dinner one... More

We stayed for three nights with our two children (2yrs and 5yrs) in one of the suites and had a fabulous time. Beautiful hotel and grounds and nothing was too much trouble for the staff. Lovely pool and spa and great food. look forward to seeing you soon.

My friend and I stayed one night on the Luxury for Less deal and were very pleased overall with our stay. All the staff were friendly and helpful and we felt royally treated. From the concierge parking our car at check-in to returning it to us at check-out we felt cared for and welcomed. The club room we stayed in... More

We stayed for 3 nights just after Easter weekend. All I can say is we loved it. We stayed in The Keep. The service, the room, the food, the grounds and the spa were outstanding. We are looking to return very soon! Thank you.

Just returned from here and overall a very decent place. It all looks very new so will be interesting to see what happens several years down the line. We had to walk a fair distance in the rain/wind to get to main door but very friendly welcome. We had a lovely room on the first floor which had a strange... More

One mum, one dad and one well behaved nine year old all thoroughly enjoyed a stay at Raithwaite over the Easter school holidays. Our first trip but it won't be our last. Every member of staff were friendly and welcoming, the room was spacious and comfortable and the pool was great to relax. Everyone happy. An experience we will be... More

2nd visit to Raithwaite and the quality, service and attention to detail is still exceptional. The staff attitude to guests is fantastic, when you get employees from top to bottom asking if they can help you, you know you are being looked after. I would say this is some of the finest staff attitudes I have ever experienced.
