“Loved everything about Wrea Head”
Reviewed January 8, 2009

My husband and I wanted to spoil ourselves after a hetic Christmas so booked a 3 night New Year break at The Wrea Head. It was everything we hoped it would be. The hotel is lovely, logs fires, comfy beds! The food is superb everything freshly cooked and hot.
We enjoyed the Gala dinner and dance on New Years Eve very much and Anne (the hotel manager who is lovely) worked her socks off to ensure everyone was happy.
We would recommend this hotel to anyone and will certainly be going again

Had a 3 day short break to unwind after finishing work before Christmas. The hotel has a wonderfully relaxing atmosphere with really excellent food. The staff couldn't do enough to make our stay enjoyable. We will definitely go there again. Just one small issue- was that really filter coffee, or was it instant? I

This was the third visit that my wife and I had made to the Wrea Head Hotel. For the last three years my wife and have stayed at the Wrea Head the week before Christmas when we visit family in Scarborough .We treat ourselves to a stay at the Wrea Head whilst the kids stay with the In-Laws. The Hotel has stunning country views but is only 10-15 minutes by car from Scarborough town. It's peaceful location is the perfect retreat for a relaxing stay. The rooms are comfortable and the food and service excellent. Top marks to the manageress, Ann who is dedicated to ensuring you have a wonderful stay. Nothing is too much for her and her frendly staff. No doubt we will be back again next Christmas. Well recommended.

We selected the Wrea Head at random atfer surfing the web looking for a black tie New Years Eve package and we are delighted that we did. The hotel is packed with period charm and the staff were friendly and helpful. From the full breakfast to the Gala Dinner the food was excellent and the standard never dropped for the 3 nights of our stay. The whole proceedings were kept operating smoothly, despite some staffing problems on New Years day morning, by the tireless efforts of Anne (manageress?). Anne added to our experience making it truly feel like we were stopping with friends. Well worth a visit.

This hotel was not our first choice. I booked the Hackness a sister hotel and after checking Trip Advisor I was very concerned about some of the reports.

As this was a special get away for us before xmas I didn't want any hic ups.

I contacted the company English Rose Hotels via e-mail and asked if someone could come back to me.

This they did a Ms Joan Turner MD for the company. She was very understanding and listened to my concerns. She fully understood my concerns and offered alternitives. withno extra charges and none raised.

I chose to stay at Wrea Head. We were not disapointed from walking into the Hotel to leaving the staff could not do enough for you. They were very friendly without being over familier and nothing was to much trouble.

I would deffinatley recommend this hotel to anyone who was looking to stay in this area of North Yorkshire.

It was a good bargin deal just what the doctor ordered. The food was very good the Celebration Pack was well worth teh money the flowers were spectacular and the Champers got the break off to a cracking start.

I wish it had snowed that bit harder I would have stayed.

Well done to all staff for making our stay special

We've visited the Wrea Head several times and find it relaxing in a wonderful setting - lovely to see the bunnies early morning on the lawn! The service is good and the food is excellent - the dinner bed & breakfast deal is very good value. If you like real fires, panelled rooms in which to spend time with your friends and an excellent base for Whitby, Scarborough and surrounds, try the Wrea Head.
