We had never stayed at the hotel before, we have had Sunday lunch several times. We stayed in the Courtyard, Superior room, quite small, no tea/coffee making facility in room. Very clean and comfortable.

Meals were pricey so we cancelled our dinner reservations and tried a pub in the next village. Breakfast was disappointing as it was not freshly cooked and was Luke warm. There weren't tea and coffee making facilities in the room. However on the 2nd day we discovered that you could ask for they and they were provided free of charge.... More

This was our second trip to Middlethorpe, courtesy of another gift voucher. We booked a second night in addition to the 'Naughty but nice' package covered by the voucher. We were not disappointed. It was lovely on arrival to be upgraded to a room in the main house, having booked a courtyard room. The room was airy and very comfortable,... More

We spent two nights at Middlethorpe Hall and had a truly wonderful stay. Everything was just right - our room in the main house was excellent, with views over the garden and lovely country house style furnishings. The bathroom was old-fashioned, as you'd expect in an old house like this, but had everything we needed. The public rooms were fabulous... More

This is not the hotel for you if you want to sit outside and listen to the sound of the countryside. The A64 runs along the bottom of the garden and is very intrusive. The bedrooms are comfortable, (if a bit warm - no a/c or fan) but did lack tea and coffee making facilities ... although we did find... More

We are sorry that these guests did not fully enjoy their recent visit to the National Trust’s Middlethorpe Hall & Spa, York, but offer our perspective on the comments made: • Although not as quiet as Country Houses in the depths of the countryside, the still tranquil location of this 300-year old Hall offers many advantages to visitors: it is...

Stayed here for my wifes birthday in June and have to say I was very impressed. The house and grounds are superb and the staff cannot do enough for you. We had a courtyard room which was not the biggest room in the world but was ample and spotlessly clean. The meal we had in the restaurant was lovely, lobster... More

Stayed here for a night in July after getting married in York city centre. It wasn't cheap but the great room, breakfast & staff made it worth it. The staff were so helpful and couldn't do enough for us. Would definitely stay again for a special occasion.

This is somewhere very special: a National Trust property operating as a friendly, professional and very comfortable hotel. We stayed two nights and will happily return. Our room was on the front of the building and was very quiet. Breakfast was excellent. We had dinner in the restaurant on both evenings: the standard was very good and the service impeccable....

We spent one night at Middlethorpe Hall and I wish I have spent more time here.... Everything was perfect, from the lovely and highly professional staff, the very cosy room (we had a standard room....but what a standard!), excellent breakfast, the building itself and (last but not least) the garden and park. This is affordable luxury, but not the sophisticated... More
