We stayed in the keep which was a short distance from the main hotel. It felt a bit like a premier inn and was a bit soulless! However, the room was very nice and the bathroom fabulous with lovely toiletries. The bed was very comfy but the extremely soft pillows weren't to our liking. The worst thing was the lighting...

This is simply wonderful. If you're needing a high quality break in the area then visit Raithwaite. The mainly young staff are are superb, occasionally too keen to please, but that can never be a fault. The decor and atmosphere is entirely customer focussed. Love it. Wish it was nearer.

We booked to stay midweek for one night, we had purposely booked to use the spa and have the pregnancy package and a similar non pregnancy package both with afternoon tea, however this wasn't the case and it simply went downhill from there! We relaxed in the 'relaxation area' to then be greeted by two therapists, taken to our treatment... More

Dear Charlotte N, It's extremely disappointing for all the Team to read your comments about our Estate and your thoughts on the service we provide. Our philosophy at Raithwaite is to provide a service that is genuinely caring and each member of our team works extremely hard to exceed the expectations of every Guest that joins us. After your check... More

In our opinion, The Raithwaite Estate is just perfect. From the moment you arrive until the day you depart, you are treated like one of the family! Everyone is so welcoming, thoughtful and helpful, nothing is too much trouble. The whole Estate is very impressive, the decor is very tasteful and like new, the cleaning staff are brilliant, not a...

I booked a cottage at the Raithwaite Estate as a last minute treat for my family of four. In summary, it would be hard to find fault and the only small issue that we had (a couple of missing items) was quickly resolved. The cottage (called Pheasant) exceeded our expectations in just about every respect. It was large, comfortable and... More

My wife and I noticed the further expansion plans and hoped that these wouldn't detract from the sense of personal welcome that we received from the youthful staff for whom nothing could be too much trouble. Very high quality restaurant and wine list, unusually well kept gardens complete with alpacas added to our very positive impression of an extremely well... More

My partner and I stayed in the Keep overnight at a wedding function. A very nice hotel in beautiful surroundings. A special mention for the gardening staff, a fantastic job!! Our room was very comfortable with a large bed and the usual trimmings. The staff were very friendly and the hotel was clean and tidy. Drinks were too expensive though... More

Firstly we were impressed by the grounds, then and most importantly, the people who work for this hotel, in particular Lucy, who is just amazing, Simon and Richard, who were both extremely helpful and also the lovely server, whose name I am afraid I don't know, but who lived in Seaton Carew. Rooms are very good, in particular the one... More
