My wife and I stayed for a few nights here and it was good. The hotel is situated not far from York with a park and ride about 5 minutes away. We really enjoyed our short stay and the staff were very nice and helpful. This is not a modern hotel so for those used to big chains with rooms... More

We spent a delightful few days at this elegant eighteenth century country house which now operates as a hotel. Stunning architecture and elegant interiors filled with historic furniture and art. We had a beautiful chinoiserie style room that overlooked the gardens and we were extremely comfortable. The staff were all exceptionally efficient, friendly and welcoming. We very much enjoyed drinks... More

We had a lovely 3 day stay at the Middlethorpe Hall and Spa which started off on a wrong note as our travel agent had made an error in our reservation. Management and staff at Middlethorpe jumped to our defense, quickly called to make a reservation for us at another comparable property for the one night they could not accommodate... More

Having read rave reviews of this hotel, we decided on a three day stay. I can only agree partially with the most favourable reviews. On the plus side , the dinner was well presented and good though choice was limited on the the table d'hôte. The service at the hotel was excellent at all times. My husband found the pool... More

We stayed for 2 nights in mid August. We arrived rather late after a frustratingly slow journey but the check in staff were efficient and helpful so we were very quickly in our room in The Courtyard. The room was, frankly, a bit of a disappointment. The main window looked out onto a brick wall belonging to the adjacent building.... More

We've just got back from a wonderful stay at this hotel. It's not often I can rave about standards of service, but the staff here were exemplary. From the first moment, we were made to feel welcome and important. I had contacted the hotel to let them know that I’m heavily pregnant, and would appreciate a quiet room and big... More

We have just returned from a two night stay and found the hotel to be excellent. We stayed in a courtyard room and it was very nicely decorated and spacious. The service in the hotel was excellent- all the staff were friendly and very helpful and attentive. My gluten free issues were dealt with and they were very helpful with... More

I gave my husband a present of a stay at Middlethorpe Hall to celebrate our Diamong Wedding anniversary, keeping my fingers crossed that he would enjoy it (he is not given to enthusiasm), He now cannot stop talking about the superb peaceful experience in a truly beautiful house. We were given a room in the stables a short walk from... More
