This will be detailed report as I want the hotel to rectify these few problems which would then turn it into absolute heaven. We arrived early as we wanted to leave the car at Raithwaite and call...

Just spent a weekend at this beautiful hotel. It's not cheap but well worth the money. There are two buildings to the hotel. We had a room in the keep. The rooms are spacious, with a good sized bathroom and include free wifi. Breakfast is buffet continental or cooked breakfast to order.Golf buggies take you to the main part of... More

An interestingly different hotel, set in a perfect location with staff who certainly try to deliver. It is not cheap to stay here but the facilities are of a high standard and the atmosphere is relaxed and inclusive. Being reliant on an electric wheelchair it can be difficult to find suitable accommodation. Room 1111 in the 'Keep' has an 'accessible'... More

This was the second occasion we had stayed at this hotel - this time with friends. We had a really lovely time - can't fault the hotel in any way. This time we stayed in The Keep, which is almost a small boutique hotel in its own right. The rooms, ambience, and service were excellent throughout. We ate in the... More

The room was a nice size but basic. The rooms have no air conditioning and are very warm whilst trying to sleep. Even when the windows are closed you can hear noise outside. Be prepared to be woken during to noise pollution ( even when the Widows are closed). I'd recommend they train their bar staff on how to make... More

Very enjoyable overnight stay. Staff were friendly and attentive. The room had a small balcony and everywhere was spotlessly clean. The grounds are lovely. We had an excellent evening meal. Breakfast was good, buffet style. Booked the pure indulgence package which included Spa treatment. Wish I'd chosen different times because at the time we visited the pool and jacuzzi were... More

Spent three nights there in early July, used it as a base to tour a part of the U.K we had never visited before. It's not the cheapest option but is good value when you consider the levels of service. Everbody very friendly, efficent and on top of their jobs. Food in bar also good and not overpriced. Wwould return

Was not sure what to expect when I arrived at the hotel it was a last minute booking but I was pleasantly surprised.

Lovely hotel, beautiful grounds, nice spa and the rooms are very comfortable. A great way to pamper yourself for a night or so. Decent bar. Reasonable walking distance to Whitby. Recommended. Would cheerfully go back.
