I was taken to Middlethorpe Hall as a birthday treat. We ate in the restaurant each evening having the taster menu one night and two courses only on the other two nights. Breakfast was the usual cooked fayre with the addition of kippers and poached haddock. I love fish and tried them both and was not disappointed. The food was... More

My husband and I stayed here for three nights in July. We had a beautiful, comfortable room in the main house. We requested a coffee tray and a fan in the room, and both were there when we arrived. Homemade biscuits and homemade truffles were also in the room on our arrival. We had dinner in the restaurant two evenings... More

We have been coming to Middlethorpe Hall for a few years now and are never disappointed.. We have stayed in rooms both in the courtyard and the main house. Rooms in the Courtyard are cosy and chintzy, whilst rooms in the House are very much in keeping with style of the house and are much larger with high ceilings giving... More

We booked direct with the hotel and got a super package. We stayed in the courtyard area in the hotel grounds which was very pleasant. Room was a little dated & chintzy, but extremely clean and full of charm. Bed was comfortable and bedlinen was first class crisp white cotton, which we love. Towels very fluffy and white. Floris toiletries... More

Booked a two night stay at Middlethorpe due to the horrendous conditions of the original hotel we booked. Middlethorpe saved our vacation in York. For anyone who has a love of English History this period B&B is absolutely amazing. The customer service was exemplary, and the food outstanding. We were given a beautifully appointed room in the main house and... More

We stayed for a couple of nights while visiting family in the area. We booked direct with the hotel and had a room in the courtyard. While the room was rather small, it was marvellously appointed. The service at the hotel was exemplary, with every member of staff being friendly and helpful. We have paid more at B&Bs and not... More

This place is a delight. The building and grounds are stunning. Breakfast is delicious and my only critique is that it could have done with a little background music in the restaurant. We didn't eat there in the evening due to the lack of atmosphere. I was introduced to rhubarb gin by the night porter too after a night out.... More

My friend and I stayed at Middlethorpe Hall for a girly weekend after good recommendations. The location is great, less than 10 min drive into York city centre, and house is impressive and grand. Breakfast and dinner was delicious but atmosphere was quite flat at times. Service was great but we were surprised that there was not a fridge or... More

Well worth the price. This property is like going back in time. The gardens are beautiful and the rooms were exceptional. My son keeps saying it is like staying in a museum. Their customer service was top notch and my friends enjoyed the spa. I couldn’t an appointment because I waited to long to book. If you want to enjoy... More
