Visited for a night away - minus children! Stayed in I believe the Coach Room, upstairs bathroom. Room very comfortable, bathroom excellent. Dined in the Bistro the food was very very good, and the portion sizes were good so that you did not feel over full. Service good, Atmosphere convivial. Slight minus points - the A19 which was a bit... More

The room, staff and food were absolutely faultless! We checked in at 3pm where our bags were carried to the Gertrude Bell room. The room was huge, incredibly clean, tidy and gorgeous. There was another floor with an amazing huge bath and double shower. We popped down for a cocktails and beer in the champagne bar - service was perfect!... More

Firstly - you should appreciate the Tontine has history - and that in itself fascinates me and you should read about it's history as it sets the scene for this slightly quirky hotel. Secondly - i have to confess i actually dismissed this hotel last year for fear of its location being too noisy - however we love good food... More

Throughout my life the tontine has been the top Restaurant in Yorkshire but several years ago it's standards fell. Back in 2013 it went under new ownership and their investment is apparent. After a recommendation from friends we decided to enjoy a night over. On the website they have various offers and promotions to suit every taste. We did the... More

Had a one night stay here very recently, the standard set in this 7 room hotel in every way was exceptional. Our room was named Gertrude Bell and there was full information in the room as to who that person was etc. The visit was thoroughly enjoyed, the receptionist on arrival was friendly and informative, the room and bathroom spread...

Thanks for your great review. I am so pleased you liked our Gertrude Bell room; all our rooms are individually designed and all just as lovely so perhaps you could try a different one next time!

the staff were wonderful and kind, the room courtyard view top floor (library) was FAB, 15 stairs to a wonderful bathroom, the evening meal was 1st class, as was breakfast with a extensive choice of food, can't rate this hotel highly enough.

This bistro is a fantastic place to enjoy a touch of luxury at a very reasonable price. The dining room has a very charming atmosphere with an air of first class dining. the staff are friendly and attentive without being obsequious. The food is wonderfully presented and so full of flavour; the small touches such as the chef's complementary tasters... More

My husband and I treated ourselves to a rare night out (no children!) and what a treat it was. The service was first class from beginning to end. The food was delicious and presented beautifully. Not the cheapest place to eat, but you get what you pay for. Although right next to the A19, the ambience was lovely inside and... More

We booked a table for 6 for afternoon tea at the tontine to celebrate a graduation this summer. Firstly the service could not have been more accommodating. We unfortunately ran over an hour late and the staff there were more than fine with our rude lateness! When we finally arrived they made us feel welcome and relaxed. The food was... More

I last stayed at The Tontine some 10 years ago. I remember it being cold and basic, primitive even. The place has changed hands a few times since then so would it have got better? We booked Sunday lunch and an overnight stay to find out. The Tontine is an old coaching inn - they still have the stables where... More
