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

We stayed here for our wedding anniversary. Our suite (number 31) was stunning...gorgeous private stone veranda and a lovely view of the church. We were welcomed with chocolate, champagne and an anniversary card...couldn't be happier! We went down to the spa, although we hadn't booked treatments we had a lovely time in the hot tub and outdoor pool. We ordered... More

We squeezed in a peaceful night away from our two young children en route to a wedding and couldn't have been happier with our experience. Being a practiced researcher of hotels, I did spend a lot of time looking for something a bit special but with a price that was affordable. When we checked in, the receptionist commented that our...

Had afternoon tea here today with some friends from London. Weren't too impressed, I'm sorry to say! The scones were terrible, and the rest of the food didn't taste of much at all. The price was also considerably higher than anywhere else I've been locally. We wouldn't recommend it, and we won't be going again ourselves - which is a... More

Helmsley is a village that should be fantastic... and it was once. It's lost its charm a bit; too busy, too many bikers, too many people in too small a space, eating too many portions of fish and chips. However, turn your well trained eye away. By-pass the once regal and great Black Swan, go around the corner for the... More

We chose The Feversham Arms as the venue for our wedding and we were absolutely thrilled from start to finish. Kirsty, who has been our planner, is absolutely superb at her job and ensured that we had everything we needed right down to small touches such as ordering in Phil's favourite beer for the day. Our master of ceremonies, Dan,... More

Once again you never fail to deliver. From the complimentary upgrade to a fantastic suite (2nd stay in this room our favourite) to the beautiful surroundings. I can't understand the previous reviews as we have been coming for a number of years and always have a fantastic stay. Yes the glorious weather topped our stay but the food and wine... More

I booked the Feversham Arms 'Sleep,Stay and Spa package' as a treat for my daughters 18th Birthday. We incorporated it into a week away visiting family in Yorkshire. We travelled from Surrey. We were booked into the Spa from 2pm for treatments. We both had massages which were very good. The Spa is rather small and disappointing and was exhausted... More

I chose this hotel as a stopping point on a whirlwind tour of England - we were hoping to relax and enjoy the spa, especially. It was a bit annoying, therefore, to be greeted at reception by someone who obviously didn't know how to check guests in. I was told to "wait a second, I'm on the phone right now",... 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. Revitalise and enjoy their famous heat experience with saunarium, aromatherapy room, salt vapour room, monsoon shower, ice cave, foot spa, outdoor heated pool and hot tub.

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. Yorkshire is renowned as a place of distinct yet diverse appeal, from the majestic Castle Howard to the Gothic seaside town of Whitby, the ruins of Rievaux and Bylands Abbey to luxury designer shopping, Michelin starred restaurants to quaint marketplace tea rooms, there is truly something for everyone. ... more   less
