We visited recently for a wedding, and whilst the lobby/restaurant/bar area were luxurious and gave the impression that the hotel was worth the cost, it unfortunately was not. The first issue hit us as we entered our room - the smell of wet dog was incredible. This was both in the bedroom and bathroom, and it took a lot of spray to mask and bare for the weekend. Secondly, for an Executive Double at this price, we were surprised to find that it was in fact simply 2 twin beds pushed together - we would have expected this in Europe or at 2nd rate hotels in the UK, but not here - especially when we had selected the ‘One Large Bed’ option. Our next issue was that the amenities list on the website did not match the actual amenities in the room - the coffee/tea maker turned out to just be a kettle, the towels and bathrobes seemed to have been used and washed to within an inch of their lives, and the iron and ironing facilities were nowhere to be seen (which were rather important considering we had traveled over 200 miles for a wedding)! The positives of our stay were that the staff we lovely and very good at their job, and the bathroom was gorgeous and spacious - not worth £225/night excluding breakfast however.

Simply the most amazing & relaxing stay possible. This is such a beautiful location coupled with the most amazing & friendly staff you'll ever encounter. The hotel is lovely & the room spacious despite described as cosy. Food was to die for the belly Pork loved by us both. Felt at home here on our two night stay, only gripe, the TV in the room needs more than 11/12 channels & could be modernised. Overall we loved it, absolutely loved it. Thanks to all the team!

This is a really lovely hotel, really nice clean rooms, a warm welcome on arrival and an amazing evening meal. This meal was fantastic, the hotel must have a great chef; I’d travel back for the dinner alone, however breakfast the next morning was awful. Has to be a different chef!!! I couldn’t believe I was in the same restaurant; buffet style with cooked additions. But the buffet emptied quickly with insufficient replenishment. Both my wife and I had the home made granola; it was inedible as far as I was concerned, really hard (could break your teeth on it!) and burnt. A cheap supermarket brand would have been better, the coffee was not very nice either and the croissants were over cooked too. Such a shame given how good everything else was - would have scored a 5 if it wasn’t for the breakfast (which was £18 a head btw). Would book room only next time.

It’s three years since we last stayed at Raithwaite, and once again we thoroughly enjoyed our visit at this smart establishment, which we highly recommend. We stayed in The Keep, a few minutes walk from the main building. Our tranquil so-called ‘Roomy’ room was, indeed, generous in size, with doors leading onto a veranda overlooking woodland, whilst The Keep itself has a comfortable lounge and a designated and obliging concierge. Breakfast was in the main building, and we ate in the conservatory overlooking the gardens. Breakfast-fare and service were first class, with a minor niggle that the kippers, though delicious, were either a tad overcooked, or had been pre-cooked and kept warm for too long. For the rest, from the excellent selection of premium fresh fruit, to pastries, preserves and more besides, it was a great start to the day. We flagged up some minor short-comings en route, and these were taken on board: Some of the grouting in our (luxury) shower was discoloured; the inner net curtain on our patio windows had come adrift at each end; there was no note-pad and pen in the room; no face-flannels in the bathroom; the spinner for wet swimwear in the health suite (men’s changing room) didn’t work, and there were no plastic bags for wet swimwear. All of these slight things can be put right very easily, and we were thanked for our feedback. But I mention them here, because they were omissions for what is, after all, a high-quality business. Finally, I must mention the staff (without exception) who strike the right balance between friendliness, yet not over-familiarness, and who make every effort to provide exemplary service.

Stayed here for a spontaneous night in September, ended up in a cosy room which was very big and had a balcony, better then we expected. Used the pool facilities which was fantastic, would definitely stay here again, staff was fantastic and professional
