Well it is just 2 minutes away from the crematorium and feels 1000 miles away from anything remotely unpleasant or upsetting. The staff were almost all amazing. We were so well caeed for by French, Spanish, Latvian, Italian and Scotts. The Yorkshire lady Helen at the spa gave me a fabulous massage and some great words of wisdom. We stayed... More

We absolutely enjoyed our meal at Middlethorpe Hall. The service was first class, and the waiters, one in particularly, (I didn't catch his name but was French?) was utterly brilliant. Such excellent training. He was so attentive and knew how to do his job well with style and poise and impeccable attention to detail. The food was fabulous! Well done... More

This classic, traditional English manor/hall was very impressive and welcoming to some weary travelers. All the staff were very friendly and efficient, making sure that we had everything we needed for an enjoyable stay. (The Scottish "door man," whose name I, unfortunately, did not catch, was particularly friendly and helpful to make sure we got settled in properly, had options... More

To make it extra special I booked for the day of our Ruby Wedding on 10th July. As we used to live in York and were married there I... More

A beautiful Georgian House on the outskirts of York, MH offers comfortable relaxing surroundings with excellent service. This is not minimalist but filled with antiques, oriental rugs and old books. Breakfast was of high quality with excellent food. Major disadvantage is proximity of A64 and resultant noise. Spa but didnt investigate it.

Thank you for my very special birthday - stunning accommodation, excellent food including one of the tastiest breakfasts! The location, gardens and history of the Hall all add to the ambience. The Spa is an added bonus! Port in the library - a must!

We've visited many National Trust properties over the years and always enjoyed the experience. Now we have stayed in one and it was sensational. From the initial, "Wow" as we pulled up and saw the house to the slow drive away with wonderful memories it was a delight. The staff were friendly efficient and nothing was too much trouble for...

I have repeated this hotel, this time with all My family. The experience has been even better than last time. Everything was perfect. They have been above all the expectations. All of them were really impressed, with service and details. For me is the place to stay in York. I only have good word about them.
