A hotel of great character in an outstanding location, set in rolling parkland. A good option if wanting to make Scarborough the base for your holiday or if you simply want a tranquil, secluded getaway.
Our room was large with a massive bay window overlooking the grounds. Loads of storage space, flat screen tv, huge comfortable squashy sofa.
Two single beds joined into a double where the edges made an unfortunate ridge in the middle. Some of the furnishings and furniture need updating, although a few minor improvements, such as adding a floor lamp to read by, would have made all the difference. (Potential guests also please note: there is no WiFi access).
But this is still a comfortable, cozy hotel overall, with the inglenook fireplace and the garden room being particularly nice assets. The staff were good, in particular the manager and head barman who are genuinely interested in offering the best service and attention. The restaurant is pleasant, and despite some hiccups with the food, there were some good dishes on offer, and the banana-butterscotch crumble was memorable. We and other guests felt that the brand new menu is too extensive to be consistently managed and they would do well to revert to the previous regime which included a table d'hote and garnered the hotel AA rosettes. Breakfast is fine although the 'buffet' part of it is lacklustre with a poor selection of continental items and fruit. This place tries hard and has the potential to be better in a few respects. It certainly made for a memorable stay and I would definitely consider a return visit.
