Although we did not take advantage of the spa facilities, we very pleased indeed with our room. The restaurant, although the room was somewhat sombre (and quiet) the food and the service could not be faulted. Staff were attentive but not over bearing, throughout our short stay. The gardens to walk around were an added bonus. Water was provided in... More

If it is almost winter, it must be time for the Walkers to be visiting hospitals again, and in doing so, enjoying wonderful hospitality extended to us by Mr.Sanchez and the team at Middlethorpe Hall. We always feel we are going home when we return to the little cottage in the grounds of this hotel.The staff are all so kind... More

We recently stayed in the Main House at Middlethorpe Hall for the fifth time. The accommodation was wonderful with beautifully decorated rooms. The staff are great and very helpful. The Manager, Lionel, is extremely attentive and assisted us with our bookings at Bodysgallen Hall and Hartwell House (also excellent accommodation). We look forward to returning in 2013.

We would like to send our very grateful thanks to the staff who attended to our table and needs on our golden wedding function on 23 Sept 2011. The celebration was booked and organised by my daughter Mrs. J. Whiteley. We had a truly wonderful time and your staff were extremely attentive and very hard working. The food was excellent... More

I've just returned from a lovely weekend at Middllethorpe. The hotel was excellent, a spacious and very clean room, fantastic views, very friendly and helpful staff, always to be found if you needed anything. They were available, never intrusive. We were there for a school reunion and they tolerated 11 noisy women reverting to teenage with good humour and sensitivity,... More

We stayed 2 nights in Middlethorpe Hall, and really enjoyed the surroundings. We stayed in the courtyard and were upgraded to a suite. This was comfortable and fantastic value for what we actually paid. We had been away for a number of nights so decided not to dine in the restaurant, as whilst the menu was tempting it was fairly...

We had their 3 course lunch priced at £19-50. The food,and service were good, no, very good, We were not however pleased to have been charged £5-95 for a glass of beer, or £2-50 for 200ml of lemonade. If you think that was dear, you should however see what they are asking for their cheapest bottle of wine.

Country house hotels tend to be a mixed bag, with the challenges of running a hotel in a building not designed for it often overwhelming the business. Middlethorpe is probably the best we've stayed in; delightful room, dedicated, competent, genuinely friendly staff, and that all important ambience that is so hard to get right. We were disappointed with our evening... More

We stayed here, three ladies on a short spa break. We had a fab time. The staff were very helpful and could not have done more. The food was excellent and the wine list superb. Highly recommended.
