“Lovely relaxing stay”
Reviewed May 10, 2013

my wife and I spent 2 nights in the main hotel and very very impressed with the room, public rooms and attentive, friendly staff. Food was also excellent, as was the spa. We hope to visit again soon and would recommend Middlethorpe Hall to anyone looking for a relaxing break in pleasant, traditional surroundings.

Room Tip: Never saw the courtyard rooms but rooms in main hotel are excellent, traditionally and comfortably f...

Lovely and clean, and the staff are an absolute asset. Wonderful stay here. Maybe not one for younger people (my husband and I are in our early 20s and we did perhaps feel a little out of place). Still, we had a lovely time and our room was great, a little noise from the A64 could be heard but it wasnt too loud!

Stayed here in February, booked on the internet direct with the hotel and went for the cottage suite, we were allocated the upper part of the cottage which was smaller than the ground floor, quite nice all the same but for £220 a night I must admit I was expecting something a little more special the other slight issue I had was that the people staying below had a dog, every time we walked across the floor the floorboards creaked, the dog below heard it and you know what's coming next, yes it started barking.
I was sure when I looked at the accommodation details on the Halls website it did not say anything about guests having dogs so I checked and it's not at all clear when you search and look at the accommodation it does not say anything about dogs but on the main home page the is a link titled (yes you guessed it) dogs, that states.......

"We welcome dogs at Middlethorpe Hall in the Cottage Suites and Garden Suite by prior arrangement. Two small dogs or one larger dog may be accommodated, but are not allowed in the bedrooms. You may walk with your dog(s) in the park, but may not take your dog into the gardens. Any damage to the rooms or injury to livestock will be charged for. We regret that dogs are not allowed in the main house, unless guide dogs"

My point would be to the management that when searching the individual accommodation details it should clearly state guests are allowed dogs on all the room links where dogs are permitted i.e. the Garden and cottage suites for people like me that do not read every link on your homepage!

Apart from the barking dog we did have an enjoyable stay all the staff were polite and gave us great service, we ate in the restaurant which was very nice indeed and a further tip would be to book your table through the Halls website which gives you % discounts off the bill if you eat at certain times, just follow the "book online" link

Room Tip: Go for the main building, no dogs!!

The first impressions of Middlethorpe Hall are of a rather grand country home, but from the moment of entering the front door there is the feeling of a warm, welcoming atmosphere, with comfortable and attractive public areas - formal, but in no way intimindatory. The staff are unfailingly friendly and efficient; nothing is too much trouble and in an unobtrusive manner they ensure that each guest is treated as a special visitor. The menus offer a wide range of choices of locally sourced produce. The meals are very well cooked and beautifully presented in the small, intimate, panelled dining rooms. The bedrooms are very well appointed, spotless and very comfortable. We have stayed in one of the rooms in the main building - positively sumptuous. We have also stayed in two of the junior suites in the former stable yard - each a delight and just what is needed for a short special occasion stay. There is a tranquil formal walled garden of flower beds, and beds of vegetables and fruit. The main park is a delight to walk in and provides interesting views of the south of the Hall. As it was a special visit, my wife visited the spa for a little bit of pampering.

This was our third visit to Middlethorpe Hall - each being to celebrate a wedding anniversary, the most recent our golden wedding anniversary. We cannot think of a better place to spend such an landmark.

Room Tip: The junior suites in the courtyard are great

We were delighted to have a child free weekend (thanks to my father!), so decided to treat ourselves. And what a superb choice we made!! Last minute, we got a great deal including dinner and breakfast in a superior room. All of the staff are super friendly, they really make you feel special. We went in the spa which was lovely, the room was perfect with a large comfortable bed and our own private entrance, like a little home away from home. A nice walk or short drive to the beautiful village of Bishopthorpe and it's lovely country pubs, we enjoyed a snack and a couple of early evening drinks there. And then there is dinner. Fabulous, superb, incredible, just aren't enough! And breakfast was great too. And all of this in such a beautiful setting. The only one thing was the heating stayed on at night, which I appreciate some people might like but our preference is no heating at night, so next time I will remember to turn down the radiator before bed. I really can't wait to go back!!

We took our parents for their 60th anniversary.The staff and atmosphere of the hotel was perfect.
I could not fault it at all.Anyone visiting from abroad will appreciate the English Countryside and charm of this hotel.
When you live in England you don't always appreciate what is on your doorstep.
I would highly recommend a stay at Middlethorpe

Room Tip: The courtyard in unique and away from the main hotel which we liked.

My wife and I had only one night to spare from our busy life running our children here there and everywhere. Middlethorpe Hall certainly proved to be the right choice. We had spa treatments, champagne afternoon tea and a beautiful meal in the restaurant. Staff are attentive the rooms individual and main hotel calm and relaxing. You will not be disappointed.
