Don't normally post reviews on trip adviser but thought our experience was more positive then some of the recent reviews here. I agree some parts of the hotel need a little updating but we found Dunsley Hall to be comfortable, the staff friendly and the breakfast very tasty. I also found the hotel to be clean and they made an... More

We have just returned from 2 nights away at Dunsley Hall. We were in room 1, which was very large with a four poster bed. Although it could do with an upgrade, my husband and I still loved it. The hotel has loads of character and this is carried on throughout the hotel. We had a meal in the hotel... More

This is situated in a very quiet part of Whitby. Brilliant location... Hotel is very olde worlde.. The bedrooms are in need of a facelift and no " freebies " in the bathroom, but they were immaculate. Sheets and all the bedding , nipping clean as were the towels. The food is second to none, a must to try. Breakfast... More

I had the Misfortune to spend a night here in August with my family. I've never liked the seaside/coast, but my wife booked a country house hotel to soften the blow. Looking at trip advisor pictures, I was actually looking forward to going. The bedrooms looked luxurious, the bar and lounge looked so classy and the building itself. Something else.... More

Booked to stay here for two days in august with family. Where do I begin? Got to the front desk to be greeted by a surly woman , who grabbed three keys and took us up the stairs and showed our first couple to their room by pointing to it and giving them the keys , then handed our keys... More

We've been meaning to visit here for some time. We only live about seven miles away but it's taken ages to get here! Visited during the day to see if we could get lunch but they only had sandwiches on, so we asked to see the menu for evening meals and came back for dinner. The hotel does not seem... More
