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

We visited here on a Sunday afternoon as guests for a BBQ event and found the hotel and staff to be absolutely excellent - very, very modern but very tasteful decoration and the food we had was superb. The grounds and hotel were excellent and i imagine as a wedding venue with good weather it would be fantastic. No negatives... More

I stayed at Raithwaite Hall for a friend's wedding recently and could not recommend this hotel more highly. The hotel was beautiful and the ceremony, which was outdoors, was out of this world. It was a picture perfect setting. The gardens were immaculate and it was the perfect setting for a wedding. But what really sets this hotel apart is... More

When we spoke to reception the girl Bryony advised us that in fact we were not in the main hotel, but rather that we were in the newer building. this is about 5-10 mins walk away and... More

we stayed for 2 nights 13-15 August, beautiful setting and gardens, and not far to Whitby. A cab into Whitby cost £5. We got upgraded to an executive room in the main hotel. I was a little disappointed with the room. I have no idea what is is trying to be. I would describe it as a characterless premier Inn... More

My Partner arranged a two night stay to celebrate my birthday. On arrival the hotel looked beautiful sitting in amongst the woodland and overlooking the sea. We were greeted by very friendly, helpful and attentive staff who showed us around the hotel and answered any queries we may have. This i have to say was our experience of the staff... More

We stayed in the main bit of the hotel, on the first floor. We arrived at about 8pm on Monday evening. The taxi journey from the station (which is located in the very centre of Whitby) was only a five minute journey, costing just £7. We were welcomed by friendly staff, who held the door to our entrance, asked about... More

The hotel offers first class hospitality, excellent food, great service and is close to the sea, but in it's own secluded estate. Great locatio for both the sea, beach, Whitby and inland the North York Moors National Park and other tourist attarctions
