i thought paying more than average would lead to a better experience, in hindsight we would have been better opting in for a spa deal or tried to spend a little more time in the complex as we didn't make use of the spa facilities. The staff in the Keep were certainly attentive... though not as attentive as other reviews... More

Stayed for one night in August for a friend's wedding. Very welcoming staff, the facilities and rooms were excellent.The kitchen excelled themselves with the quality of the food served. The breakfasts were also very good. The estate grounds are well looked after, overall it makes for a relaxing and enjoyable venue. We will stay again, but this time we will... More

Our accommodation was lovely - just what we wanted as a family with 2 small children. The family suite, room 301 with 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom & lounge area. On booking the room, I explained that we needed space for the children to sleep separate from us & when the children were in bed we would be ordering room service.... More

This was our second visit. We find this hotel understated. You can relax, enjoy the surroundings, the proximity to the beach, the lovely town of Whitby nearby. The room, spa, restaurant are fantastic. I did not want to leave.

We decided to getaway from it all with a short break on the Yorkshire coast and the Raithwaite Estate was a perfect place to do this. The staff were friendly and levels of service extremely professional. The Brace restaurant was excellent for both dinner and breakfast and the food was of a high quality as you'd expect. The wine list... More

My partner and I went to Raithwaite hall for the night as a special treat. The hotel room and spa were lovely but our dining experience was not! We ate in the hunters restaurant and the service we received was terrible! We were ignored by the staff for most of the evening and the food was overpriced and extremely disappointing.... More

We stayed at The Raithwaite Estate for 2 nights from 23rd-25th August for our mini honeymoon. Our room was located in the Hall and was perfect for our stay. The staff are friendly and nothing was too much trouble for them. The setting is lovely and the gardens and grounds kept to a high standard. The breakfasts were good with... More

We had a wonderful weekend at this hidden Gem of a hotel which is located within walking distance of the beach and Whitby centre. We booked one of the cottages which was perfect for our weekend break (wish we had time to stay longer). The cottage was extremely well appointed with an amazing Siemens kitchen which even had a cooking... More

Lovely accommodation in the courtyard with lounge area, bathroom and wardrobe downstairs. Small turned staircase to a lovely bedroom with large comfy bed. A great welcome, a porter showed us around the hotel before taking us to our room, showing us that, helping with luggage and then even moving the car to larger car park area. We were able to...
