Booked this as a special treat for my husband. We stayed in The Keep which is nice but a very small place. Small reception, small bar, small dining area, small lounge area. The room was nice but nothing special, the bathroom was a decent size with bath and walk in shower which was good. The biggest problem was how hot... More

Wow what a Gem. we stayed for 2 nights, and were really pleased with the hotel and staff. Its location made it perfect for a stroll in to Whitby. The food was very well presented and the staff in the all areas seem proud to work at the raithwaite which is pleasing to find now days. The gardens make for... More

Me and my husband stopped at Raithwaite for our wedding anniversary on the 6th july 2014. When we arrived we was greeted by Simon the Concierge who took our cases up to the room. Nothing was too much trouble for him or the rest of the staff. The room was lovely with its own balcony and a small table and... More

My family and I recently spent a weekend for a birthday at Raithwaite and could not fault the staff or the accommodation. When booking the weekend, the staff were quick to respond by both email and telephone to ensure that we obtained the best value room. The family room we were given was brilliant. A terrace, living area and two... More

My husband and I recently visited Raithwaite for a relaxing weekend and chose this hotel because of all the positive reviews. The first night we were staying in The Keep which is separate from the main building. On entering the room we were overwhelmed by how warm it was. There is no air conditioning built into the rooms so they... More

I have stayed in many 5 star hotel (The Savoy, The Goring, Rockliffe Hall) and I struggle to see how Raithwaite has attained a 5 star rating. The Duluxe room we booked was split over two floors, (no hairdryer in the room). The staff were friendly enough but it is quite evident they need to be trained properly, one does... More

Spent the weekend at the Raithwaite Estate with a group of friends and had a fabulous time. From the moment we arrived till leaving the service we received was impeccable. The staff were very attentive without being intrusive. As this was a special celebration we pushed the boat out and stayed at the Lake House which was spectacular and finished... More

Returned to Raithwaite Estate for second visit, this time with a group of friends to celebrate a special occasion, and we hired the lake-house for a night. This is a truly stunning property ideal for groups of friends/family to spend time together, whilst still having your own space, as the rooms are so large. The bedrooms are particularly luxurious and... More

Had a wonderful few days at this hotel, couldn't recommend it highly enough. The staff were so helpful and friendly, nothing was too much trouble. The breakfasts were really good, so much to choose from and the chef would cook something to order. The food in the evening was also very good. The room was spotless and the bottled water... More

We stayed for 2 nights, the staff are all lovely and nothing is too much trouble for them. We stayed in the Keep & had a lovely big room with a balcony with table & chairs and (most unusual) an ashtray for the smokers. A walk-in shower/ wet room. We ate in the main restaurant the first night (there are... More
