We stayed at The Raithwaite Estate for one night as a luxury as it was quite expensive, and we weren't disappointed. When we turned up the reception staff were very friendly and showed us to our room. Our room was beautiful. It looked out over the landscaped valley and it had a balcony for us to enjoy the sun. The... More

We stayed in July 14, with a garden view room, in the main hotel building. The room had its own balcony and garden views. Food in the restaurant was great - for breakfast and dinner. The estate keeps expanding, building more accommodation, but doesn't feel crowded. Didn't use the spa this time, but it has all you need. Staff were... More

I went to Raithwaite for one night to catch up with an old friend. There was very limited availability so I plumped for the two bedroom cottage rather than a room in the hall as I thought it would give us a bit of privacy. It was expensive so expectations were quite high. The approach to the estate from the... More

The hotel itself was also very impressive and... More

Stayed 19/07/14 to 21/07/14 This was booked as a surprise for my birthday. The bed room was in the roof and the only windows were skylights that let in no fresh air at all, also the light streamed through in the mornings, unlike curtains the blind did not block out the light. Room was very clean, apart from the strip... More

I have never used Trip Advisor as i think people give shody views on some really good hotels to the detriment of good honest hotel and B&B owners/staff, but I felt had too on this occasion because of the great experience we had at Raithwaite Hall. Everything about this hotel to me was perfect! Me & my Wife decided to... More

We stayed for two nights. The room was spotlessly clean and quite large with a lovely big bathroom and comfortable beds. The pillows were really nice, not the usual hard, lumpy hotel pillows. Robes and slippers were supplied. The pool area was also very clean and very pleasant to use. Breakfast was very good with plenty of choice. Dinner was... More
