This was our second time , at Dunsley Hall. We stayed in a ground floor room., very spacious. Two massive wardrobes in the room, so tall we couldnt reach the the top shelf! No drawers, so everything was bundled in to 3 shelves, including shoes. En-suite shower room. But the shower room was very small. No where to put a toilet bag etc. had to put it on the floor. Clean towels daily, which was nice. We were there for 4nights, so the sheets were not changed.
Everthing seemed different to the last time we stayed-not as good. The first night we ate in the small dining room(just 4 of us)
The second night just the two of us in the larger dining room. We were placed right at the far end of the room(knowing that my Husband had difficulty in walking) It was cold, and there was a draught, blowing through the double (kitchen) doors we were sat in front of.---Very unpleasant. The menu was repetitive--same food disguised as a different dish! And they didnt seem to know what fresh vegetables were!
On our last night we couldnt face the menu. as we had run out of food we liked, i had had fish twice, and had to eat the Lamb, which i dont like.
We ate at the Cross Butts Stable Restaurant (5 minutes away) it was fantastic. Excellent quality , and excellent choice. We loved it. And our next visit to Whitby, will be there, as they have Luxury rooms around a Courtyard, and they looked superb.
Please dont be put off by my report, as Dunsley Hall is still a magnifecent building etc. but it seemed to have lost its sparkle.
