We have just returned from a lovely stay, on arrival we were greeted checked in and shown to our rooms and were told we could take complimentary coffee in the bar or lounge once we were settled. As we were heading into Whitby we chose not to take them up on the offer. We went to the reception and asked a different receptionist if she could book us a taxi, this lady was as equally cheerful and professional as the First Lady.
Food, we had breakfast both days afternoon tea and an evening meal.
At breakfast there was a wide selection, I chose the Dunsley grill which was gorgeous. I believe the hotel has its own chickens so the eggs are very fresh.
Afternoon tea was equally gorgeous, we had various sandwiches, brownies, Bakewell tarts, Etonian mess and of course not to forget the freshly baked scones which were still warm with clotted cream and jam. As much tea or coffee you wanted too. We chose to have this in the lounge area which was very nice, panelled walls, lovely fire place and sofas. We played cards and read magazines,
Evening meal, we went to the bar got a drink while we looked at the menu, there was lots of nice sounding choices, we both chose the carpaccio for starters which melted in the mouth the main course I had slow cooked beef cheek which was to die for and the wife had Plaice which looked gorgeous.
The wine is of reasonable price most bottles around the 20 pound mark which I thought was good for a hotel, after our meal we ordered coffee and had this in the lounge were we played cards which was a lovely finish to our day.
Room, we were in room 25 this was a very spacious room which had a huge bed two seats, dressing table wardrobe side tables, tv and beverage making facilities, the bathroom had a heated floor which was great but could get warm if you were in there a while. The bath was large which had two shower heads a fixed and a wall one. Outside the window was bird feeders which was a nice touch as we got to see a lot of nice wildlife.
All in all our two nights away were very relaxing all the staff where very nice and engaged in conversation with you asking how your day had been which I thought was nice.
I will be going back.
