My "executive" room in the "Keep" (built I'm told 18 months ago 200 yds from the main part of the Hotel) was large, immaculately clean, comfortable and well equipped - the bathroom with bath an double shower was outstanding. The room benefited from a small balcony bordered by the "battlements" (which to you can see well in farmersusan's photo) the... More

This was our first visit, and we were very pleasantly surprised with every aspect of our stay. We had a very warm greeting from the friendly and attentive staff, making us feel like regular frequent guests. Although we had booked a standard king room, we were very pleased with the spaciousness,and enormous bathroom, all spotlessly clean. We had a light... More

Spent two nights staying at The Raithwaite Estate and have to say that we had a wonderful time. The food in the Brace Restaurant was delicious (if a tad expensive if you are paying full price) but our room was lovely and every member of staff we had dealings with was friendly and welcoming. The quality of the food provided... More

We were celebrating my wife's birthday and ate in the Brace restaurant the food was perfect as was the breakfast the following day. Sandsend is delightful and we walked down from the Hotel... More

Having stayed at the hotel this weekend I was extremely disappointed with some aspects of our stay. The room on first appearances looked lovely, however on closer inspection the carpet between the hall and bathroom was loose. And in addition a sleep in is highly unlikely as the blinds at the windows allow the light to come in down the... More

We really can't fault our experience at Raithwaite Hotel. We used the spa, had a drink in the bar and then a meal in the Brace Restaurant. All were excellent. We slept really well, the beds were really comfortable, the duvet felt like Goose Down it was so light, great bathroom and shower, blackout curtains meant we didn't wake up... More

We attended a wedding here and the staff couldn't do enough for us. The setting both inside and out was fantastic. Very well thought out and arrangements were all to plan. The food at the wedding was amazing as was breakfast the next morning. Our room was in 'the keep' lots of space, modern, the bathroom/shower was very inviting. We... More

This was our fourth stay at the Raithwaite hall hotel and again we had a wonderful short break. The staff were again friendly and willing to please, in fact nothing was too much trouble for them. When we arrived the concierge helped with our bags and then drove our car to the car park for us. The room was clean... More

My husband and I stayed here on 23rd December as our Christmas present to ourselves. The hotel was great. The staff are lovely, polite and helpful. The food was exceptionally good. The room was large and clean, as was the en suite which had both bath and shower. The bed was large and very comfortable. The only reason I didn't... More
