Just got back from a one night stay here. We had two rooms for our family 28 & 29 and both were dated and felt quite small and shabby. Both rooms had tv's that were so old fashioned I hadn't seen one so big in years! I felt like the whole place was shabby, all of the sofas in the... More

Fantastic spa facilities with great treatments. Spa friendly and professional. Lovely outdoor heated pool and jacuzzi, good lunch. Hotel was also great, room was luxurious and a pleasure to stay in.....so much so that I ordered room service and the food was first class.

Went for afternoon tea as always looked a nice hotel and wanted to try it before staying longer. There was valet parking and the gentleman who parked the car was really nice and friendly and showed us into the lounge. This was quite shabby and not in a chic way. Young man brought out food with tea but we had... More

A lovely spa break in this hotel again - our fourth visit. Last time we got a very poor room (11) but this time we got a beautiful room (35) and had a lovely time. Spa was great (although if have a treatment ask for room away from jacuzzi area as can get noisy there and hardly relaxing). Meal was... More

We had a one night stop and from the car Valet service to all the hotel facilities including the Spa we found the hotel very good. Unfortunately due to our dining experiences we were disappointed the hotel did not realise all our expectations which was a shame. We had the 6 course “Taster Dinner” which took 2.5 hours to complete... More

This Hotel is let down by poor customer service I think the problem is they don't have to try too hard to get people in - one of only 2 hotels of any size in this picture postcard little town. We arrived around noon and understandably were told rooms would not be available until 3 or maybe a little earlier.... More

The Feversham Arms is a nice hotel, but for £280 a night I expected something with more of a wow factor. The Delux suite we booked was nice-ish (very dated twee decor), but as it overlooked the pool, we had very little privacy. There was a TV in the bedroom and another in the living room, but they were 20... More

I really appreciated the small town feeling of Helmsley, UK as I was here on business for a total of 7 nights. The hotel offers WIFI but the quality is really poor and you lose connection often through the day. The hotel obviously appeals to vacationers and honeymooners so not too much to a businessman. The breakfast starts at 7:30... More

The hotel is lovely, rooms very nice. The evening meal was disappointing. The food was nice but not enough of it. I had 1 small ravioli for my starter, then fillet of beef for main. It was cooked lovely but it didn't come with anything other than 1 spoon full of lentils. The beef was very nice but gone after... More

I visited the Verbena Spa with my daughter for a Spa Day and really enjoyed it. The Spa is small but very nice with an aroma room, salt steam room and a sauna. The hot tub and outdoor swimming pool were in our opinion the best area of the Spa. We were pleasantly surprised at the temperature of the outdoor... More

Nestled in a picturesque market town by the beautiful North Yorkshire Moors, this elegant Hotel boasts superb dining, full spa facilities, a heated outdoor swimming pool and free Wi-Fi. Surrounded by glorious countryside, this wonderfully secluded retreat is a haven of laid-back luxury and indulgent relaxation. Famous for its welcoming hospitality, it blends the traditional comforts of its Victorian heritage with an irresistible boutique design. Beautiful, peaceful and thoroughly unique, one visit is simply not enough. Guests can choose from a range of 33 individually designed en-suite bedrooms and suites each with their own unique decor, style and character. Cosy and intimately homely, they all feature Egyptian cotton sheets, soft exquisite duck down duvets (or cotton blankets), free Wi-Fi access, flat-screen TV, DVD player, luxurious Anne Semonin toiletries, hairdryer and tea and coffee making facilities. There are accommodation options to suit all purposes, including Small and Classic Doubles, Junior and Deluxe Suites and, for the ultimate indulgence, Luxury Poolside and Spa Suites. Superb food plays a big part in life at Feversham. Here diners can enjoy classically inspired dishes from a menu that draws heavily from fresh local ingredients such as rich Yorkshire game and tasty North Sea fish. It's also home to one of the most talked about cheese trolleys in Yorkshire, traditional afternoon tea in their cosy fireside lounge and an impeccably well-stocked cellar. Throughout the warmer months, dishes can be served poolside on the terrace and gardens. The hotel's award-winning Verbena Spa offers an idyllic haven from the pressures of everyday life. Here guests can kick back, relax and immerse themselves in luxurious indulgence. They offer a range of treatments from manicures, facials and massages through to full spa day experiences.

For those flying in, Leeds Bradford International Airport is about an hour's drive from the Hotel. Beautifully located in the depths of the stunning North Yorkshire Moors the Hotel is the perfect place from which to explore this remarkable area.
