Reviews Summary
This summary was created by AI, based on recent reviews.
Powered by AI
Solberge Hall Hotel presents a dichotomy in guest experiences with its atmosphere, which some find charming and others consider lacking. The amenities generally garner approval, particularly the food and scenic views, though guests believe there's room for modern enhancements. Service at the hotel receives accolades for staff friendliness but is occasionally marred by slow response times. Cleanliness is a strong point, with most visitors appreciating the well-kept surroundings, despite calls for updates. Room opinions vary, appreciated for their spaciousness and cleanliness, yet critiqued for outdatedness and some maintenance issues. The value proposition is debated; while some guests find the pricing reasonable, others balk at the high costs for certain services.

My review is a negative because of additional service charges on absolutely every transaction, this was an audacity from the point that we were fetching our own drinks from the bar, it wasn't table service. Expensive drinks. Carling at £5.50 per pint and then the hotel 10% on top. So every round of drinks bought carried another 10% for no-one doing anything more basic than serving behind a bar.. To add insult to this injury the hotel goes on to add extra service gratuity for the staff when you check out!!! I would direct you to these extras of which nothing was mentioned in my confirmation booking email. I have included the view from Room 11, depicted as a superior room. The extractor fan and rooftop. The noise from the extractor fan started from 6:30 AM on all the 3 mornings we were there and whilst it stopped at 7 pm on our first night was still whirring away at 22.30pm on the second. Before unpacking our suitcases I had returned to reception to raise my concern. I assumed that the person who I was talking to was either the hotel manager or the establishment owner. She had little or no interest in me as a guest with her response to absolve the hotel because it was being renovated. Well an extraction fan and a roof are permanent fixtures and were outside the window of Room 11. Her reply was no better regarding Room 12 where my brother had checked into. His bill came to over £600 for the 3 nights and his view was of a dormer window not more than 3 foot opposite that had bright blue tarpaulin flapping around it, the same rooftops and scaffolding. Not a green tree or blade of grass in sight. This was supposed to be an executive suite. He complained that there was a constant humming sound throughout the night. Sundries, 3 sample size of the basic bath, shampoo, conditioner but these were not replenished after day one. The hand soap in the dispenser wouldn't foam up which left us wondering whether it was watered down. The beds were made but our bathroom was not cleaned on day 2. No biscuits, but tea, coffee, sugar and milk. Was it clean, to be fair it was, spotlessly. Did the general staff work hard. To be fair one's we saw did, yes, but were always managing on their own. Ample parking, yes, that wasn't an issue. Was breakfast good, to be fair, yes, the bacon was very tasty as was the black pudding. Did we eat in the restaurant, no because I have no problem with rewarding good service but I felt this hotel management exploited every opportunity to add service charges and that spoilt our stay and is my biggest grumble.

Absolutely fabulous time. Firstly they honoured our classic lodges vouchers. Staff friendly, room lovely. Very clean quiet and comfy bed. Food for the evening meal was one of best we’ve had for a long while. Breakfast extremely tasty. We understand it’s going to be an events premises and not so much hotel. Good luck - but I’m sure you will succeed. Thanks for a great stay .

Some poor customer service and in the middle of a major refurbishment. NEGATIVES, poor signage and lighting for reception Shower was spraying all over due to leak and wet towels were not collected from Bath. Main lamp didn't work in room plus ripped wallpaper on wall.High cost of drinks in Bar 12.95 glass of wine. No cooked breakfast on second day , only £5.25 reduction given and no explanation to begin with. Lots of noise caused by workmen and their vans blocking the restaurant windows. Positives, nice views from room and decent food when they had a chef in attendance. Don't expect fair treatment if anything goes wrong. My advice , give it a year and it might be OK

Excellent one night stay at Solberge Hall. This was our second visit and again it was punctuated with good food, really beautiful room (room 4 Robson in which we've stayed before) , lovely ambience, staff friendly, polite and efficient, nothing too much trouble. Highly recommend.

We stayed here some time ago but it has new owners now so we thought a revisit for lunch was called for. Upon entering its still a little dated but apparently everywhere will be renovated. We were shown to the bar area for a drink first, only bottled beer at the moment but lager on draught When lunch was ready we were shown to the restaurant and was took back by the quality of all the décor but most of all table cloths! which we have always liked. Quite a rarity these days. Not forgetting the copper coloured cutlery. We had a excellent lunch, fish and chips for me and fishcake for my wife who described it as the best she has ever had. All home made by a very capable chef. We paid the bill without seeing it but thought it a bit steep. I later telephoned to ask for a itemised breakdown, food was reasonably priced, however the wine is very expensive @ £10.95 for a large white and £13.95 for a large merlot which I was shocked at. Then there's a automatic service charge of 10%, which makes the merlot £15.34 WOW. To also add it was nothing special. Overall we enjoyed it and when all renovation work is completed, and in the summer it will be very nice. Will try it again but will enquire about wine prices before buying.

The hotel staff were polite and friendly. The food was incredible. The rooms need modernising, however they were clean and well equipped. Our tv didn’t work and after asking twice, this wasn’t resolved. It was very quiet but we liked that. Drinks are very expensive. We had a nice stay but won’t go back. Our view was awful.

We travelled down from Scotland and was staying one night with our 3 rescue dogs, and meeting up with our family (who live in the area) for a meal, at the hotel. We were given the menu prior to arrival, as we were a big party the whole team were so helpful. The hotel and staff were fantastic they set up a beautiful table in the lounge area so that the dogs could come in…the attention to detail was amazing. The fire was light it felt very personal, my family were so impressed and the food and service was very good, it was a guy and girl …sadly I forgot the names … The following morning at breakfast they set up our breakfast in the lounge so that we could bring our dogs with us to breakfast ( obviously no dogs allowed in the main dining room) . The rooms were clean and big couldn’t fault them. The grounds are magnificent. We would like to book again for this year, however the team said that it’s going to be an exclusive wedding venue, shame .

Been here several times and always enjoyed our stays. This year things were very different. The staff that are there are brilliant but are struggling to cope with the work load. Very understaffed. First morning at breakfast I had to find cups and some cutlery as the table was only partly laid. Service was very slow as only 1 staff on. The New Year's Eve event has always been a great night but yet again it was a let down. In the past the tables have been decorated beautifully with fresh floral decorations and the room has been lavishly dressed. This year Connor did his utmost to make the best of a poor selection of decorations. The staff were efficient and attentive, shame the new owners didn't project a more professional image. Her friend obviously needed to be the centre of attention and was an absolute disgrace. Having spoken to other attendees they too were appalled by the behaviour. Good luck to Connor and the team if this is what's in store for this lovely hotel. I for one will not be attending in the future

We had a lovely three night stay at Solberge Hall in mid December. The location is stunning, and the building gracious and welcoming, not too large, so it felt as if we were arriving for a country house weekend, Agatha Christie style. As there is only one upper floor, there is no lift, so worth bearing in mind in terms of luggage. Our room was spacious, elegant and comfortable, if a little faded in terms of furnishings, but the views from our window were stunning. The bathroom was nice, although it would benefit from having a walk-in shower rather than an over-the-bath shower - the head could not be adjusted, so it was difficult to avoid wet hair if a hair wash wasn't needed. Toiletries were very disappointing - just three tiny bottles of body wash, hair conditioner and shampoo between two of us. On trying to wash our hands on arrival, the contents just would not come out, as they were too thick. Staff brought us more bottles on request, but as they were too viscous to use, eventually offered us the dispensers which had previously been available in the bathrooms, which had been recently been replaced. These worked fine, and it's a mystery to us why the bottles, plastic, environmentally unfriendly and difficult to use, had been introduced. The names on them were another mystery - Dirty Cow, Scruffy Cow and Smelly Cow! They were tacky and inconvenient, and a big mistake if the aim is to convey an upmarket, sophisticated atmosphere to the rooms. The staff were very helpful throughout our stay, and the food excellent. We were disappointed that although we had booked dinner for our first night, we had not been aware that there was a large function taking place in one of the rooms that meant a set menu of only three items per course was available. The meal itself was lovely, but it would have been nice to have had more choice. The function itself wasn't a problem - despite a event with music going on, the place remained very quiet. There are lovely grounds around the Hall which would be even more accessible in drier months, so plenty to commend this really fine hotel. However, we understand that it has come under new ownership within the last few weeks, and that the plan is to convert it to a Wedding Venue, involving building of extensions, hot tubs etc. We believe that this is a massive mistake on the part of the owner - tourists come from all over the world to enjoy Yorkshire's history, incomparable landscapes, friendly people, James Herriot associations, and wonderful food, and to ring-fence a property like this for only one purpose is a big risk and a loss to other potential guests. With lots of sympathetic refurbishment (excluding hot tubs and horrible toiletries, tacky and not a 'good look' if you're aiming for refined sophistication and class) this could be a real, destination hotel for those coming to savour the wider delights of this matchless county.

Turned out to be the worst Christmas Package we’ve ever known at over £1000 for three nights, we left after two. The cook must have have been used to making food in a large institution like a prison or a hospital: Christmas lunch usually the centre piece of such a holiday comprised thinly sliced turkey in a watery gravy, sprouts boiled to death and a roast potato you could not cut into. After nearly two hours they still had not managed to serve the Christmas pudding, so we left. No on-site management in evidence the entire holiday, totally lacking any effort to create a festive atmosphere with no Christmas decorations apart from a solitary tree and no warming fires lit. An unmanned, poorly stocked bar epitomised the lack of care and attention to create a luxury 3 day break for their guests; no-one cared. Hairpin found in bed in the overheated bedroom even with radiator turned off another indication of poor management. We were advised on checking out a day early on Boxing Day to send a complaint to the off site manager prior to posting a review; this we duly did but as we might have expected, it wasn’t even answered.
