We have just arrived back from a two night break at Dunsley hall hotel near Whitby. I bought a voucher from buy a gift.com for a two night luxury break for my husband for Christmas and he chose this hotel from a selection.
As it says in the brochure we found that the Dunsley hall is a true Victorian country house which offers traditional comfort and is elegantly furnished within keeping with the Victorian era. Our Bedroom was cosy and comfortable with tea and coffee making facilities and a trouser press.
The manager and the staff were very welcoming and friendly, they were so attentive and nothing seemed too much trouble. The food was fantastic. We took evening dinner one of the nights which there was a good choice of menu. Canapés were served in the bar while the staff took your order from the menu. We were also served with pre starters in the dinning room. All dishes were presented well and if you could manage a sweat you were also given a pre sweet course too.
For breakfast there was a lot of choice and plentiful. There were a choice of cereals, fruit, yogurts, fruit juices to help yourself to then we chose the Dunsley Grill which consisted of 2 rashers of bacon, 1 egg, 1 sausage, black pudding, tomato and fried bread followed by toast. ( I Had to ask for a smaller portion on the second morning.)
For what we paid it was very good value for money and we would definitely go back. It is ideal for couples wishing to get away for a romantic break but I would like to go back also with a few couples who are close friends.
