We wanted to visit Whitby and made this our base. I can not fault a single aspect of our stay! The food, wine, room, staff and location were all above and beyond and we're hoping to bring our parents here next year as a birthday treat! If you have the opportunity I am confident you will love this hotel!

I work in a stressful environment so was needing a relaxing break. I booked the yorkshire retreat which included a two course meal, breakfast and use of the spa. After booking this I was concerned about the quality of the food as it seemed to good to be true for the price. I was proved wrong! I had the salmon... More

Stayed for 2 nights in a 3 bedroomed cottage. Bedrooms are on the ground floor with a spacious lounge, dining area and kitchen upstairs. Very comfortable beds and cosy everywhere with underfloor heating. The housekeeping team were excellent. They called on our second morning to ask if we would like our beds made and they brought us a couple of... More

off the beaten track, but what a find! Set in beautiful picturesque grounds. Cosy, clean, comfortable and well maintained. Nice small pool with spa facilities. The staff couldn't do enough to keep us happy. Simon the concierge deserves a special mention for looking after us.

Excellent hotel tucked away just north of Whitby. We stayed for one night for our niece's wedding and were very impressed by all aspects of the hotel. Took a 14 week old puppy with us and he was accommodated in a purpose built dog lodge in The Keep building on the estate. Every member of staff that we met was... More

This is an excellent place to stay. The entire hotel is wonderful and has a great staff to match the ambiance. It is located just outside Whitby on the coast road and we found it very convenient for the town. The food is very good and the grounds are lovely. We will return next time we are in the area.

My husband and I stayed here last weekend and had a fantastic time. We stayed in the separate annex of the hotel (the keep). Our room was huge with a really big bathroom and small balcony, everything's very new and very clean. The staff were wonderful and although the walk to the hotel was only a few minutes there was...

I recently stayed here for one night for my birthday as a gift from my partner. We had the dinner, bed and breakfast package which cost £150 and was incredible value for money considering how wonderful the whole experience was! We were contacted before our arrival and informed that we had been upgraded to an executive room in the main... More
