Great stay in this elegant hotel full of character. The staff offer excellent service we have stayed in 3 different rooms here all have their own charm. The suites are very roomy and luxurious.
The spa staff are excellent the very cold swimming pool is the only let down. All the staff are a credit to the National Trust and so is he delightful charm and character of this hotel.

Room Tip: If you have mobility problems avoid the 3rd floor as there is only a very small lift

My wife and I had a very relaxing weekend, we stayed in the Terry suite, room 26, it is excellent, well equipped and very comfortable. We dined in on Friday evening, very attentive service, excellent food and wine. The location is great, just a short taxi ride from the city centre, right next to the racecourse. Spa facilities are superb the gym is small with only 4 pieces of cardiac equipment but the pool, sauna and steam room are,very good. This is the place to stay for a relaxing weekend at York.

We were pleased to book into Middlethorpe Hall where we held the wedding breakfast for our daughter's wedding. Classic setting and service provided both the bride and groom and their families with a memorable event. We loved being there, wheee we enjoyed the grounds and amenities, as well as being close to the wonderful city of York.

Middlethorpe Hall is an elegant place; it's also quiet and relaxing. We went for lunch - a special deal at £19.90 per person for two courses. We waited rather a long time in the drawing room for drinks and the menu. The tables in the dining room are a little too close together; I don't want to have my neighbours' conversation imposed on me. We had starters and main courses which were very nice but on the small side. It's best not to be hungry in this place! The dishes also contained too much salt; chef - please don't add salt, we can add our own if we want it. We took our coffee and petit fours (not included in the price) in the lounge. The coffee was just about OK but not very strong (even though we asked for it strong). They don't have skimmed milk, only semi-skimmed. The service during the meal was efficient and 'correct' but not delivered with much enthusiasm. We would go there again if we wanted a grand place to eat (and take guests) but there is better food to be had elsewhere in the York area.

We stayed here as a special event on our 47th wedding Anniversary. The management, on finding this, kindly upgraded our room to a courtyard suite cottage called the Sir Henry Thompson Suite. What a wonderful place with everything thought of, right down to the bowls of chocolates and grapes. Even the coffee making facilities had a caftiere and very decent coffee. The bathroom had his and hers basins and both bath and separate shower. There were televisions in both the lounge and the bedroom. We did not dine here as we had dined at the Hotel Du Vin using a voucher given by family, but the breakfast was superb. The staff were very friendly and helpful and the place spotlessly clean and well decorated. They thoughtfully closed the curtains, turned the lamps on and turned the bed covers back whilst we were out. The main building was ancient and superb and the main lounge unbelievably beautiful as the photos show. We found that this ground floor suite in its own courtyard was very quiet and restful. We could not recommend this place enough and will certainly return. Congratulations to all who are responsible for this haven. You are professionals indeed

Room Tip: I would suggest a courtyard room rather than the main building facing the motorway
