Only stayed here once for one night but it is literally the best place I have ever stayed for a relaxing break - no-where else can top it in my opinion! I visited with my boyfriend for our anniversary, the room we stayed in was a club room, I think the lowest priced out of the rooms but I couldn't... More

Booked two nights in a Deluxe Room. Warm welcome from Reception staff however it was downhill from there. Although I had paid for an upgraded room for a 30th Anniversary my wife and I were shown to a large room overlooking the front car parks, no views across amazing gardens. A complaint to Reception fell on deaf ears and we... More

Although we only stayed one night, we made the most of this lovely hotel. Conveniently located on the outskirts of Whitby (40 mins stroll along the seafront) and set in lovely grounds. Our room was located in the 'Keep' rather than the Hall, but it was only a 2 mins walk between the two buildings unless you took advantage of... More

Had a weekend away at Raithwaite Hall when highly recommended by a friend. I can second that high recommendation, we had a wonderful time. What a happy team of staff, always smiling and happy to help in anyway. Couldn't fault the staff in any way. Rooms were clean and very comfortable. Wonderful full Yorkshire breakfast ready to start the day.... More

Loved the hotel but charging £37.00 for a standard bottle of Prosecco is scandalous !!!! Have had champagne cheaper in a 5 star hotel. The food was excellent and service particularly from the valet parking gentleman.

My husband and I treated oursleves to a Yorkshire Retreat break at Raithwaite Hall this week. The staff were very friendly and helpful . We were moved to a lovely room when we found the noise from the kitchen disturbed our sleep in room 104. Breakfasts were amazing and the spa was great.

Last visited two years ago and we made a return visit in February for my hubby's birthday. Safe to say this hotel is still brilliant, we had a lovely relaxing time in the spa area and had a bite to eat in the bar on the Sunday evening - the food was well presented and very tasty and we found...

Two parts to this. The main Hotel and the Keep. Either is good. Food excellent. Menus could be a bit bigger or change daily. Very good quality though. Venison with chocolate sauce, who would have thought. Room clean modern but not that big. 5 mins from Whitby £6 in a taxi. Service. 10/10 Never had better anywhere from everyone. Felt... More

We stayed on the Pure indulgence package for Valentines night. This was our first visit but, definitely won't be our last. Great location and lovely hotel. We spent the afternoon in the spa which was very relaxing til 4pm (when kids are allowed in!), had a bottle of pink champers in the room and then a few cocktails before dinner.... More
