“Excellent weekend break”
Reviewed October 6, 2012

Beautiful large country house hotel, a short drive from Scarborough. The management team and staff are extremely helpful, friendly and professional. Restaurant food was so good that no need to venture out in evening either (which would have been a bit of hassle with the car.) We went with a special offer so had a premium room at a very good price.

Will visit again

Just come back from our break at Wrea Head Hall,we have been lucky to stay at some very nice places,and this one is up with the best! Must admit we read some pretty poor reviews here before we booked,that almost put us off,but decided to book,and very glad we did.
As stated in a lot of these reviews,the Hall has recently changed into private hands,and the new owners are working flat out to bring it all up to date,and am sure wilth all there enthusiasm it won't be that long before its all done, to the same high standards as in the public rooms.
The food is 1st class,the team(special mention for Ann) are friendly and always willing to help,the Hall is in a wonderfull setting,what more could you want.
As this is a old Hall full of character the bedroom sizes,and views will differ greatly,so it's worthwhile reading up a bit to make sure you book the right one to suit,this is easy to do on there web site as all the rooms are fully described,following that,we booked room1 that didn't dissapoint.
We will be back.

The Wrea Head Hall Hotel has proved a superb venue for our stay. We were welcomed into this beautiful country retreat which oozes charm and character and our needs were attended to with care and efficiency, in a relaxed and comfortable way. Nothing was too much trouble. The rooms were sumptuous, the food delicious and the atmosphere exclusive, yet never stiff or starchy. All the staff were very efficient, yet friendly and helpful and the location, set within it's own gardens with far reaching country views, is idylic. We look forward to a return visit!

Best place we have ever stayed. We had room 18 which was lovely and has a wonderful view, if there's a down side to this room it;s the smallish bathroom (but how long do you spend in there?).
The staff were always cheerful and eager to help - especially Ann (thanks for showing us some of the other rooms before we left).
The public area's are so atmospheric - the panelling, pictures, windows, furniture, lighting - and that staircase - wow!
The quality of the food and the dining room service, in our view was excellent.
The setting of the hall is wonderful, nice and secluded yet only a short drive to Scarborough and many other places of interest.
Would not hesitate in recommending to anyone, we will certainly be making another visit.

ok im going to start off with up until 6 months ago this hotel was part of a chain of hotels, it was purchased around 6 months ago by the current owners Gerry and Mark, who i had great pleasure in chatting to and asking of theire plans for the hotel when i found out they had recently purchased it, from what they say and photos shown to us the hotel was / is in need of some refurbishment, they are working their way around the entire building (with minimul disruption to the residents) theire plan will take up to 3 yrs,(this included the planned Gym and Indoor pool. so far they have done a lot behind the scenes and in front of house, the bar the restaurant and many other places, and they are passionate about the hotel, the plans they have sound excellent , but it will take time and has to be done while trying to run the hotel and keep everyone happy, and im sure if any of you stay there and there is any little thing that you dislike maybe a quick chat with Gerry and he will be able to explain as to why it is like this.

ok as for the hotel, it is set away from the main town and about 1/2 mile off of the road and in lush gardens, it is quiet , very quite and peaceful, no cars , no noise, no loud tourists, the grounds are well looked after and i can only immagine they look wonderful in spring and summer, ample parking for all. a fair size patio set just outside the bar, impressive wooden panel wall as you enter through the main door to check in, check in for us was smooth and withourt a hitch, we were (uknown to us at the time) checked in by Gerry who was more than happy to carry our bags and show us to our rooms, our rooms were rooms 17 and 18, ok a bit small but they were the last ones left when we booked, that said its not the sort of hotel were you go to spend all day in your room,the rooms were clean and tidy, well decorated everything worked, bath and shower worked , water temp in shower can change a bit so be aware,bathrooms a bit small but these rooms were origanly the servants rooms, yes there is some refurbishment planned as we soon learnt that this will start in January 2013,for this wing, this building is over 120 yrs and by all account negelcted a bit in the last 15 yrs, the history of the house is very interesting indeed, the lounge areas of the hotel are well furnished, clean, bright and warm, the bar has been re-decorated and brought upto date with the new colours and make you feel very welcome, the conservatory is a nice place to chill while waiting to eat,the dining room is just that a dinning room, the resturant has been totaly redecorated and has a nice ambiance about it, service was lets say a 9 out of 10 ,the breakfast were excellen,t ample and hot, we stayed both night at the hotel to eat and enjoyed the indulgence menue, on the first night the food could not be faulted, unfortunatly on the second night it seemed the kitchen was under a lot of pressure and my lamb was overcooked, dissapointed a bit buit not enough to ruin a great weekend spent at this hotel, i will say the food is great value for the money, so hats off to the staff and Owners of The Wrea Head Hotel, looking forward to a return visit some time next summer.
