We arrived at 1pm because I couldn't wait any longer, I was so excited. The hotel staff were so friendly from reception, porter, spa staff, waiter and gardner (who I think was Lady Masham) As we were early we got a chance to play snooker (I lost), then billiards (I lost), table tennis (I lost) and we were just about...

Like stepping back in time or moving into a stately home. We were greeted at the entrance by our porter John (a credit to the hotel) who showed us into reception and then onward to our room taking time to point out all the amenities along the way. I must say that all the staff we met were exemplary. Each... More

I think they should describe themselves as a stately home rather than a castle. Walking in was like walking into a National Trust property, but it was grandness without being stuffy due to the friendliness of the staff. You were able to wander around, sit in any of the grand rooms, sweep down the staircase without any fuss. We spent... More

This was our second stay, our first being after a chef's table a few years ago which was a great experience. On this stay we ate in Samuels and even though we were informed when we booked that the Head Chef wouldn't be there, if we hadn't been informed we would never have known as the food was excellent. We... More

Stayed here for my brothers wedding on 11/01/15. From the moment I arrived I was blown away. The hotel is beautiful and very well maintained. The staff on reception were very friendly and the porter who took my bags was a nice touch. I stayed in the Whitby room, which was perfect as that's where I am originally from. The... More

We stayed here for a couple nights to celebrate our 35th wedding anniversary in December 2014. From arriving at hotel our stay was everything and more than expected. The ambeiance was so calm and welcoming, without being too fussy. The room we booked was luxurious and clean with complementary mini exchangers of whiskey and gin with mixers and water (maybe...

This was our 2nd visit to this hotel. Very impressed the first time and even more impressed this time. We stayed for the 3 night package for New Year. Everything was thought out precisely to give you nothing less than a luxury break. We arrived before our room was ready and was given mulled wine and offered mince pies to... More

We spend our Christmas in the York Suite at Swinton Park. As an ex-pat this ticked all the Christmas boxes. Stunning castle from the outside and warm mansion home on the inside. The staff were very friendly and warm. The York suite was like having our own little home within the hotel with stunning views of the deer park. The... More

Stayed here with my work Christmas party, apart from the room being too hot which I rectified by turning off every heater it was amazing. Room was lovely, food was outstanding, staff were polite and attentive.

Historic building, but needs a bit of TLC in places. The suite was very nice, with lots of space, although the bathroom was cold and we had some issues with hot water. Not many guests when we were there midweek, so felt like we were rattling round a film set or a wedding venue. Dinner was nice - but in... More
