Parsonage Hotel & Spa
Ranked #1 of 1 Hotels in Escrick
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed November 13, 2013

This hotel is very welcoming, stayed here for 2 nights on the 10th and 11th november with my family, the staff were very friendly. The rooms where very nice and and cosy. The only down side was the hotel was quite cold during the day and i stayed in room 9 and i was sweltering in bed during the night as the radiators where on at bedtime all night but off all day. The bar area was very quiet and could do with some cards or board games for some entertainment but otherwise this was a very very nice place and would reccomend to anyone.

Room Tip: rooms at the front of the main house are brighter than the back which these are very dark.

We stayed for two nights in October booked through superbreaks, I am sure you get put in worst rooms booking through them. Room 7 was really small no windows and tiny bath room bit like a prison cell and was very dusty could not stop sneezing in mornings.The food and service and everything else was lovely and would go back but would defo upgrade room.Staff were brilliant.

I cannot understand some of the reviews I have read about the Parsonage. We have just returned from a 2 night stay and we found it to be very well organised, clean and very well run. We were booked into the annexe which we found quiet, spacious and vey clean. The bed was very comfy and the shower very powerful and hot. The waiter and waitresses were very courteous and efficient both at dinner and breakfast which was excellent. I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel to anyone. Due to time we were unable to use the spa facilities but we did look and they looked very good. Will use them next time we visit which we definitely will.

Room Tip: We asked for an upper, quiet room which we got, the only noise was from the laundry cupboard and the...

Had a three night stay with my girlfriend during half term to unwind and use spa and do a little sight seeing. Overall we enjoyed our stay and here is our feedback...
Positives:
Really friendly staff
A nice size room with lovely bathroom
Beautiful setting and building
Really good spa facilities
Ample parking
Free wi-fi
Good breakfast selection
Negatives:
Restaurant food was not very good and service was poor
Room not hoovered during our stay
Showers in the spa were TERRIBLE
Not enough signs telling people to shower in the spa - you wouldn't believe how many people think it's okay to build up a sweat in sauna and then get straight into jacuzzi
Rooms not soundproof
Tried to double charge us for dinner in final bill


On the plus side we found great food at a pub called the white swan in Deighton (3 minute drive or 10 minute walk)

Room Tip: We stayed in the coach house and view wasn't great plus they did not Hoover it.

I had booked the Parsonage hotel as a suprise for myself and boyfriends (now fiance) 3rd anniversary. After a really tough touristy week in London, we were really excited to get to the hotel and enjoy what seemed to be a very high standard hotel and amazing spa area (the spa is definitely high standard, really lovely clean facilities and lovely staff). We arrived in York at 11.15am and decided to go straight to the hotel, we were told check in wasnt until 2pm, which was fine with us as we headed straight over to the spa to relax for a bit. We came back in to the hotel at 2pm to be told our room wasnt ready and could we wait in the lounge. 40 minutes later and we were still waiting, eventually a member of staff came over and asked if we would like tea or coffee (expecting it to be on the house) we said yes, then the staff member came over and handed us a receipt to be charged to our phantom room. Eventually I got a little frustrated waiting and went to the reception (after an hour of waiting) to ask when the room was going to be ready, the receptionist did say 'actually it is ready for you'. We were taken down to our room to find the bed hadnt actually been changed, i did ask the member of staff if the room had actually been touched by the housekeeping staff, to which she replied, 'im not sure i will check'. ten minutes later the girl returned with a housekeeping girl and we were taken back up to the lounge area while the room was serviced. Within two minutes of us waiting at the lounge we were told our room was now ready, i can only assume the pillow cases were changed and that was it. We sat in the room and mulled over the situation, while sitting there i noticed a few more cracks...the curtain area was full of cobwebs and there was a big stain on the wall (the rooms need a good spring clean and a lick of paint) We then decided to book somewhere else in York and explained the situation to the manager at the reception, the reason for the late check in was because they were busy the day before and didnt get to catch up on the rooms, to which i promptly replied 'that is not our problem and i dont see why we should of had to wait, it is a totally lame excuse'! The receptionist also said if we had told her sooner, we could of got a bottle of wine or something for the room... although we did say to her colleague who showed us in to the room the first time around that we werent happy and she did say she would discuss the situation with her manager...lack of communication between staff and manager...again not our problem. As this was a surprise and a special weekend, I was understandably really disappointed and upset to have this whole situation happen.

In conclusion, really bad customer service, no valid reason for having us waiting around and the room wasnt even cleaned.

Room Tip: Tip from me is do not stay here!! If you want to sight see around York, it will cost you £18 in a ta...

Group of 6 ladies booked for the overnight pamper package, spa very clean, lovely relaxing rooms but nowhere near enough sun loungers in pool area, 6 of us had to squash onto 3 & even then other guests were asking when we would be leaving so they could use them, felt very uncomfortable as there was nowhere else to sit unless you went back upstairs to the afternoon tea area. One of our party complained about her treatment being noisy from the tea room so unable to relax & the therapist acknowledged the comment but did nothing about it!
The hotel room couldn't be better, airy clean & the bed was so comfortable. Evening meal, absolutely delicious & top notch! Breakfast also was of a high standard & choice. All in all a great hotel let down by spa facilities, maybe because it was a weekend & too busy!

Plus points: Lovely, professional young staff, good breakfast with Tiptree jam etc. in glass jars, delicious cooked breakfast, lovely building, setting and grounds, lots of hot water, huge towels.

Minus points: dated room decor, black mould round bath, double bed which is far too small for most couples, (Premier Inn always have kingsize), duvet well past its sell-buy date, it kept sliding out of its cover which had no poppers or buttons, hard bed and pillows (polyester), but worst of all, we did not get to sleep till gone 2 due to doors slamming repeatedly and people talking loudly in corridor until 2 am. The sound proofing is non-existent in annexe which is of poor build quality. In the morning, we discovered that there was a fire door next to our room so we can only think that it was this door that kept slamming. No reply when rang reception at 1 am. In addition, our ground floor room in annexe had french windows to garden but no windows so room was hot and stuffy despite turning off heater.

Not a good night's sleep and no discount offered when we complained in the morning. As I say, the staff are young, very professional and very polite but they are being let down by the management.

Room Tip: Do not accept any room in annexe. The sound proofing is non-existent.
