“A fabulous short stay break”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2011

We arrived for our 30th wedding anniversary break on the bank holiday Monday to be greeted by a personal host. We were quickly ushered through the sign in formalities and taken immediately to our room. We had chosen one of the historic rooms and was allocated the Bronte suite which was fabulous with views over the terrace and valley to the rear of the hall. We were given champagne/strawberries/chocolates in the room which was absolutely immaculate. All the facilities, bathroom and mini bar were fully stocked.

The hotel itself was obviously and old country house with beautiful old rooms which are well furnished with plenty of comfortable furniture and retain many interesting and original features. If you want sleek lines and plastic then go elsewhere!!

The dining facilities are of two types with the Rawson resturant being the primary dining area. The table cloths, cutlery etc are spotless and we witnessed the staff continually cleaning the area as well as serving. The meals are a mixture of table service and buffet style depending on what you chose. The food quality/choice was excellent and considering the number of guests present all credit to the chef. Admittedly in some areas the tables were a little cramped but in general this is not the case.

The Terrace restaurant offers superb dining at a small supplement ( you must try the Terrace dessert) with silver service and full table service.

The bars, tea rooms and shop provided good food, drinks and gifts at reasonable prices and again with excellent service.

The staff in all departments were a mixture of British and European origin and were excellent. Nothing was too much bother for them and they carried out their duties very proffessionally. Some of the older guests may like to relearn some manners from these younger people!!

While we were staying there the age ranged from late forties to eighties but in no way did this detract from our stay.

The hotel boasts a lovely pool, jaccuzzi, sauna and steam room with excellent shower facilities. There are also beauty treatments at a competitive cost.

Finally the entertainment / activities were brilliant with vignettes, plays and a murder mystery. During the day you could learn circus skills, archery, rifle shooting and card making to name a few. In the evening there were a variety of acts, competitions etc to satisfy most people.

I have read the previous reviews on this site and I am sorry for those few people that have had a bad experience there but there will always be whingers!!

Room Tip: Book the rooms with a terrace view.

We have just returned from a nights stay at the warner leisure Nidd Hall and had a lovely time.
The hotel is set on the most beautiful and well kept grounds.
Our room was very clean and spacious.
The hotel staff are very friendly and helpful.
We enjoyed the leisure facilities while we were there, the pool is a decent size so you can have a nice swim and the jacuzzi was very nice too.
The food is very nice, both the evening meal and the breakfast we could not fault.
The majority of the guest were elderly, and myself and my boyfriend are only in our 20`s so we did feel a little out of place, but we still had a very nice time at such a lovely hotel and would definetly recommend it.

The good bits:
the welcome-superb
friendliness of staff-very good
location-excellent-look out for Red Kites
professionalism of bar staff-excellent
entertainment-mixed
food-Terrace Restaurant OK and some good, Rawson Restaurant poor
The bad bits:
the bed (we stayed in an historic suite) -lumpy, old, uncomfortable
Dinner in the Rawson Restaurant-truly terrible-ate there only once and then paid extra for Terrace-also our waitress did not speak English
Local knowledge-we asked Reception about the area and local walks-they had no map of the area and said there were no walks-we bought a map from Ripley and discovered the area is teeming with good walking
Clientele-geriatric. I was surprised as we stary regularly at Thoresby Hall and have not felt particularly "young" there. We did here (we're aged 40s and 50s!!)

Thank you very much for taking the time to share your experiences with regard to your stay at Nidd Hall Hotel.

I was delighted to read that you had an enjoyable break at Nidd Hall; your praise for the team, facilities and the service are very much appreciated.

May I apologise most sincerely for any disappointment that you encountered on your short break with us. It is unfortunate when certain matters mar what should be such a satisfying short break. Had the team been aware of your dissatisfaction with your bed and the food they would have endeavoured to do something about it. during your stay

I have spoken to the reception team and they are now looking into purchasing some more local walking maps that they can lend out as they must have given out the last ones they had.

Thank you again for your feedback

We have just returned from the Easter break at Nidd Hall, and everything about the break was fantastic, room, food, attentive staff all great, and of course the entertainment provided by a Beatles tribute band just FAB.

We have been on several Warner breaks and enjoyed them immensely however Nidd Hall was exeptional. The staff are very professional and welcoming, nothing was never to much trouble and everything was done with a welcoming smile. The grounds are amazing as is the actual building. The pool is a relaxing area and many different types of spa treatments availble. Food was fantastic and of a high standard, we never had one bad meal and service was spot on, the staff were very pleasant and helpful at all times. We will definately be visiting Nidd Hall again.

We have just returned from a wonderful stay at Nidd Hall. Well what can i say the whole experience was just brilliant. From the receptionist to the catering staff to the staff in the leisure facility to the entertainment staff everyone was wonderful and so accomodating.
On arrival we found we where in the cottage the room was wonderful very spacious and luxurious and the view over the church a pleasure to wake up to in the morning. The hotel was everything we could have wished for in a 4/5 star hotel. All of the rooms the library the drawing room etc were fabulous. The food was delicious with plenty of choice. You get a dedicated table for your stay so never feel rushed to eat and get out and i think her name was Annlise (waitress for table 81) was wonderful at her job and so attentive. The leisure facilites were fantastic and there was lots of choice to keep you entertained all day long if you wanted, if you didnt there was plenty of places to just chill and relax from the delightful comfy rooms to the fantastic grounds.
The entertainment was first class the Gillettes had everyone dancing the house band fabulous and the group that did the west end shows were brilliant they all deserve to be stars in the west end. Others entertainers were brilliant the murder mystery play had us entertained for over an hour by brillaint actors and actressess. Warner should be very proud of all thier staff at Nidd hall.
We were concerned at just how old all the other guests were going to be after reading other reviews but we should not have worried there was a mixed age range from i would say 30+ up and everyone so was friendly.
Our first experience of a warner leisure break was just fantastic and we will definately be returning.

Room Tip: Stay in a heritage room.

We stayed at this hotel for one night and had a wonderful experience. The welcome from reception was second to none - even though we arrived earlier that check-in time we were told we could enjoy the facilities prior to our rooms being ready. We had booked standard accomodation, which was spacious & spotless. We induldged in afternoon tea - I highly recommend the scones! drinks and extras were competitively priced.
The leisure facilities were great, with a larger than average swimming pool - the only niggle I have is there is a 50p charge for use of a towel!
We had dinner in the terrace restaurant which is an extra charge - but well worth it for the fine dining experience - the service was second to none.
Just wish we had stayed longer!
