“A lovely place to spend our wedding anniversary”
Reviewed February 21, 2014

we thoroughly enjoyed our stay overnight. Our room 14 was lovely. The bathroom had a lovely deep bath and the separate shower was a delight. the range of toilertries was extensive and smelt lovely. Lots of fluffy towels and bath robes. we had an enormous sleigh bed which was very comfortable.
In the evening we went into the bar and all our needs met by attentive staff. we chose our food from both menus and were not disapponted. the scallops were delicous and the beef and lamb were just sublime. the dining room has lots of character and is well laid out. the wine was nice with a good choice (slightly over priced but did not spoil the experience).
Breakfast was good with lots of choice. the cooked breakfast was substantial and set us up for the day.
we would definitely return.

Room Tip: Room 14 looked out over towards Scarborough and was on a corridor of three rooms, nice and quiet.

From our arrival on Monday afternoon until we left on Wednesday morning the whole experience was fabulous. The building and grounds are impressive and the interior is lovely too. The hotel bedrooms are being systematically renovated and we had one of the renovated rooms. The shower is really powerful and the bath (in the room) is the most comfortable I've ever used, lovely for a luxurious soak. The huge bed and tasteful furnishings made for an extremely pleasant accommodation. The guests lounge is a comfortable place to sit and read a book or the paper. The bar is pleasant too and we had a drink and ordered our dinner there before proceeding to the dinning room. We had dinner on two nights. The food was extremely good. All the dishes were imaginative, with great ingredients and well executed. Breakfast was also very good. In addition to the traditional full English there were other options such as smoked haddock with a poached egg on top, kippers and more. Finally the service from reception to the bar and the dinning room was attentive without being pushy. The service combines a concern to do things right but without being snooty. Friendly but professional. All in all a fabulous experience. We will be back.

Room Tip: Ask for a renovated room.

We just spent two nights at Wrea Head to attend the wedding of friends. Due to the excellent value we took the dinner, bed and breakfast option for the first night and we weren't disappointed! The room was lovely and comfortable with beautiful views and the food was fantastic. The staff are also very welcoming and extremely helpful. Special thanks to Ann for everything. We will definitely return!

Myself and ushers & best man stayed at hotel night before my wedding that was taking place at another venue. All staff were very helpful for our needs and made us feel very comfortable. We took a look around a refurbished room which I would highly recommend. Overall highly recommended hotel would def stay again.

Booked the stay as a post New Years night away, pre booked room 8 based on the details on the website, we knew the room was closing for a referb that month so were expecting slightly tired fittings, however when we arrived the room was not as described the description given was for the refurbishment room not the room that was there !! (Website now adjusted) Major disappointment, to be fair we were moved to another room (20) that had been done and was lovely and finished to a high standard. Only downside is beyond the main stairways the building is lacking in TLC and needs some serious attention to the decor however would love to come back and see how its evolving over time.
Booked a DB&B trip and the meals were very good, the staff were fantastic and very helpful.
Will return....

We love this hotel - we have visited it for romantic weekends for nearly 10 years & it never disappoints. The hotel is beautiful, the service faultless, the food excellent all overseen by the marvellous manager Anne for whom nothing is too much trouble! So much so that we are returning in the summer to celebrate my 50th birthday and my mothers 70th and bringing all the family with us. Really looking forward to our next visit already!
