My sister treated me to a gorgeous Afternoon Tea for my birthday what a beautiful hotel and grounds. Finger sandwiches scones and cream cakes so delicious even had to have a doggy box to take some home. Service was excellent. We didn't have time to go round the gardens but they looked fabulous.

Living in a busy modern city like Melbourne Australia, I found Middlethorpe Hall to be historic and beautiful with amazing grounds surrounding it. Having the opportunity to have a massage and use the pool and spa was amazing, helping me to unwind. This is one of the best hotels I have stayed in. The staff were so very helpful and... More

We got married at Middlethorpe Hall 4 weeks ago and we had the most wonderful time. We chose the small wedding package (we had 8 guests) and everything was just perfect, from the availability of different rooms for the ceremony, reception and wedding breakfast to the breakfast the next day. We were lucky enough to have beautiful weather and sat... More

A really interesting place, rather posh, but very friendly staff are determined to make the stay as relaxed as possible. The house is daunting, but once you get inside, the staff make you feel very welcome.. We ate the first night there, in the 'Pineapple' room, which is 'not formal' so we didn't have to wear a tie...much relief all... More

This is a beautiful hotel, in a peaceful setting with stunning grounds. We stayed in the cottage suite, which was cosy and peaceful, with its own kitchen and sitting room. The staff are attentive and friendly, but not intrusive - nothing is too much trouble for them. I would stay here time and time again.

We stayed here for one night with their 'naughty and nice' break deal, as a treat, our first night away after our baby was born. The deal included a lovely dinner (we upgraded to the tasting menu but all the menu looked wonderful) which was absolutely delicious, served in a charming dining room in the heart of the house with...

This is a National Trust hotel in an historic building which provides a continental level of attentive service in a beautiful English country house setting. The restaurant is excellent and the friendly and knowledgeable staff are drawn from a number of countries which adds to the interest.

We stayed at Middlethorpe Hall on Sunday 19th April, which was a birthday treat from my in-laws. From arriving in the afternoon, the hotel staff couldn't have done more for us. I was wished a happy birthday on arrival and the hotel kindly upgraded us to a lovely corner deluxe room overlooking York racecourse - which for us was ideal... More
