My husband and I went for a three night break with friends. We enjoyed our time there very much. The staff were very pleasant and helpful, the rooms were good and the breakfasts were great. The swimming pool, sauna and steam room was a real bonus. It is an ideal location to explore the beautiful Yorkshire coastline and charming towns.

The staff on Reception were fabulous, very friendly and welcoming. The room was very spacious with everything I needed, and the bathroom large and well fitted out. The building and grounds were lovely, and room... More

We stayed here for one night and booked a suite which was in the courtyard. The room was over 2 floors and really nice. The shower was lovely and the bed really comfortable. We had a balcony downstairs which looked onto a small waterfall, (not quite as pretty as it sounds though) and gives everyone in the spa a good... More

Having stayed in some excellant hotels, this was outstanding, from the warm welcome from Peter to the quality of the food. Tranquil surroundings for a relaxing stay, to a stones throw away from stunning views. Excellant choice by Barney the dog as hotel is doggie friendly and he was well spoilt with his own bed! Would definately recommend and will... More

I booked last minute for a two night break, not having completed much research, so not entirely sure what to expect. Oh my word, what a wonderful place to stay, the hall and estate buildings sit in sumptuous gardens, beautifully landscaped and maintained. The staff are exemplary and service exceeds expectations. We had a fabulous suite with a huge bed,... More

We stayed here in early May as a birthday break, and were impressed with the service we received from the staff, from Peter the Porter who met us at our car,and the concierge team, to the staff in the Spa. We really couldn't fault the service received. We had a room in the main hotel, and it was perfect; very... More

Dear janette t, Thank you for your generous comments. We have recently introduced a process whereby the Concierge team contact guests 48 hours in advance of your booking to discuss your room allocations, spa times and restaurant reservations.

We stayed here for one night but wished we had booked longer. From the moment we arrived and were greeted by Peter in the car park the staff couldn't do enough for us. When I asked them to change the bedding as I had forgot to inform them of my husbands feather allergy it was done within half an hour.... More
