Having spent our previous night in a wet tent and the day at a full on sporting event, we had sensibly booked ourselves into Middlethorpe. Think Jane Austen. Traditional furniture and furnishings, comfortable beds, sumptuous dinner menu, 15 different gins, substantial breakfast, peace, quiet, calm ,tranquility, descrete staff, good manners, exquisitley set tables, garden flowers, nothing is too much trouble,...

Middlethorpe Hall & Spa is a picturesque, traditional country house hotel, in a beautiful setting. We stayed mid July, on the eve of our son's graduation from the University of York. As the weather was fine, we had drinks on the terrace followed by a truly magnificent dinner. The staff were attentive and the service was simply excellent! The next... More

We wanted a memorable day in a beautiful setting for our small wedding party. I cannot thank the staff enough for delivering what we will remember as a very special event. The food was fabulous, the setting was pure Jane Austen and the gardens breathtaking. We plan to hold another family event there at Christmas. A perfect setting. Kevin&Lisa, Wilmslow

We stayed at Middlethorpe Hall as it was close to York. It was our eldest son's graduation from the University of York and what an absolute delight it was. We had two adjoining rooms which was in effect a cottage within the grounds and it was like something out of a Jane Austen book except up north! The Hall itself... More

My parents and I spent on night here last Sunday and I must say we were pampered. We initially had a 3 room cottage but since my parents have difficulty climbing stairs the team immediately changed the room and gave us a better cottage on the ground floor with a private garden and a separate room for me at no...

It's around a year since we last visited this property. I wrote well of it on that occasion and not much has changed. This year however it was extremely busy as it was Graduation at York University. The same high standards as last year were maintained, in particular the restaurant service. Delightful young staff from various parts of Europe made... More

We stayed here at the end of March. We were upgraded from a courtyard room to the main building. The room was very nice but it was like living in a previous era. This is reflected throughout the hotel as it is owned by the National Trust. Breakfast was chosen from the menu and was very good. Dinner was excellent... More

I have to start by saying I had one of the best massages ever here. A Madagascar Escape Massage. Thank you to Lisa for doing it. It was great. Different to a normal massage due to stretching of limbs alongside massage. I would really recommend it. Thank you to my lovely husband for booking it all as a birthday surprise.... More

We went for an evening meal and weren't disappointed. We have eaten in a lot of so called top places, this venue rates amongst the very best. Friendly attentive staff, superb house, or mansion, grounds, parking. Really enjoyed being pampered.
