We have recently returned from Raithwaite Hall and as we were having such a relaxing time we decided to stay another night. Five star hotels are, in my experience, not always relaxing environments but this one definitely is. It has a calm ambiance and the generally young staff are extremely friendly and very personable. Despite an initial problem with the... More

The staff are charming but lack supervision in some things. A little more attention to detail and this Hotel could be excellent - and would make more money. The food is extremely good, and the hotel itself is a pleasant place to stay. However, my wife and I booked a more expensive 'deluxe' room, in the main hotel building but... More

My family and I (10 of us) stayed at The Lakehouse in the Raithwaite Estate in April 2014 and it was a home away from home for us. There is just SO much space and all the bedrooms are nice and evenly spread out all with en-suites or a bathroom nearby. We loved coming back after our day trips to... More

The Yorkshire coast has been crying out for a place like this for years - a large, modern, professionally run, comfortable place with good decor, good food and good facilities, especially the lovely pool - modestly sized but immaculately clean. The location is brilliant - the beach at Sandsend is a 5 minute drive in one direction, and Whitby 5... More

We visit Raithwaite two or three times a year for a short break, most recently at the end of August, and it is always very good. The hotel itself is comfortably and luxuriously appointed and set in delightful, manicured grounds which are very pleasant to walk around. Staff are absolutely top class, managing to be both friendly and totally professional... More

Just spent 3 nights in a double room in The Keep at Raithwaite. Just lovely - great service, big comfortable room with equally big ensuite. Very modern, in fact only 1 year old, Breakfasts are exceptional with so many choices of continental and cooked food. We ate in The Brace Restaurant and also the Poachers Bar and couldn't fault either.... More

Gorgeous gardens and stunning rooms, just a short walk down the beach to Whitby. We used the gym sauna steam room and pool, and all was very clean and relaxing. We used room service which was very prompt and tasty. Breakfast was the best breakfast I've had by far. All the staff from start to finish was happy welcoming and... More

Really disappointed with this hotel. I found the service very poor and the food not good enough. The spa was really smelly and full of kinds – not relaxing at all. The cost was outrageous. I would NOT recommend this hotel at all – go somewhere else
