I took my girlfriend here for her birthday. We had a massage and used the spa facilities which were both brilliant and had the 6 course tasting menu which again was amazing. The staff were really nice and knowledgeable on everything you asked them, would definitely recommend staying and eating here!

We just love coming here. The rooms are comfortable, now with fridges which is useful. And the yorkshire parkin, delish. The staff are above and beyond. They are so friendly, yet professional, and nothing is ever too much trouble.The food in both the Brasserie and the Burlington is exquisite. The fine dining experience is excellent. With the comfortable lounges and... More

Loved the history, the hotel and the food. The rooms were named not numbered which was quaint... we had a four poster bed and the room over-looked the Italian Garden. The Reception and Concierge staff were very helpful. Some of the wait staff were a little 'cold'. We paid for the bed and breakfast option and breakfast was beautiful...so much... More

A lovely spot on a sunny day - we had hoped for a sandwich lunch but they don't offer that, but nice for a drink. The children enjoyed the open and safe gardens (including several helicopters that popped in for lunch!).

Stayed at The Dev for one night as had been given vouchers to use for bed, breakfast and evening meal for 50th birthday present. We have previously been for afternoon tea and would probably not have thought about staying there due to price and me being a tight Yorkshireman. However, you can see why people spend the money as it... More

Booked a experience package for two nights a couple of months ago and we were lucky enough to have the Burlington Room meal when Adam Smith was on his last week there as head chef, the meal was superb!

Read Simon H's review and very much agree with everything he says. Our room was nice , the deluxe level, but smaller than I expected. The swimming pool is so tiny that it really is not worth crossing the road and getting wet for !!! The food in the restaurant was very good but the tables were a little too... More

Now before I start this, I'm not sure whether I'm missing something . . . . . I don't think I was out of my depth here, but if I can pay for it, then surely I should be made to feel as comfortable and have a nice time like everyone else? The spa is really small and not really... More
