“Blissful retreat”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 1, 2013 via mobile

We stayed in the newly built 'Bellagio' room. It was beautiful and opulent and we had a huge bath and walk in shower. Outside we had our own provate couryard and jacuzzi, bliss. The service from reception staff to waiters was excellent and would definitely return again (we have previously stayed in 'the Raffles' room but found The Ballagio more private.)
We had an evening meal in the restaurant which was delicious and breakfast this morning was superb. Only wish check in was earlier and check out a bit later so we could spend more time in that hot tub!!!!!

We visited Crab Manor for our 1st Wedding Anniversary and stayed in Sharrow Bay. The hotel and it's grounds were lovely and staff very helpful. Canapés were served in the hotel and we headed down to the Crab and Lobster for our evening meal, which was faultless - Hidden tap a plus! The only downsides being that the room was situated on the ground floor (limited privacy with the communal hot tub/sauna being located outside), there was no shower and the room was unbearably hot (the fan didn't provided didn't really help and little sleep was had for this reason). All in all a lovely stay, would definitely stay again but would probably choose a different room.

I stayed in The Ritz room for one night when in the area for work and loved it! Such a change from the usual hotel with quirky and unusual features while remaining luxurious. And as for the staff..... Amazing. So friendly and helpful and welcoming. I had to leave early the next morning before breakfast started so they sent me up a continental breakfast before I left. I can't wait to find an excuse to return!

Birthday treat for my Husband end of July 2013. First thought on arrival... Beautiful.. The restaurant at front of road was picturesque and hotel the same.. Stayed in a cabin with outside hottub... Free beer was really nice touch.. Sat outside in sun enjoying the lovely surroundings. Sooo relaxing.. Went for pre dinner drinks which could do with bit more atmosphere but still enjoyable. The meal in Crab and Lobster was really good.. Our cabin gates literally on restaurant outside eating area.. One final free beer before a midnight hottub experience.. Perfect... Was expensive and will be a while before we consider again but loved every minute.

My husband took me to Crab Manor for my 65th birthday as a surprise and oh what a surprise. We stayed in Raffles, a very dark and dismal room outside the back door of the Manor and looking onto the staff car park so no nice views of the gardens. The hot tub was o.k. but nothing exceptional and the sauna in the bathroom was a waste of space, personally we would have preferred a shower. The room was very spacious but extremely cluttered & there were too many empty champagne bottles on dusty shelves for our liking (a cleaners nightmare). Plus side the bed was extremely comfortable. We had dinner in the Crab & Lobster - the food was good but the surroundings were uncomfortable claustrophobic with so much dusty clutter. Breakfast was the best part of our stay. There are nicer places in North Yorkshire to stay for £240 per night.

Stayed in Bird Island for a special occasion after months and months of trying to find a good excuse to book in. We had eaten here before and enjoyed it and longed to try some of the interesting rooms.

The room was lovely, lots of detail and heaps of space. The hot tub outside was great fun and very clean. However, the decking was a bit of a mess...there was rubbish/cigarettes and smashed glass underneath it and the ornamental pots were full of rubbish. I would have thought for the £240 a night price tag they might have had a good clean round as part of the housekeeping.

We ate in the Crab & Lobster and enjoyed canapes in the lounge before hand which was a nice touch. Strolling through the interesting and quirky grounds was lovely in the sunshine..you really can't fault the setting. The breakfast was also nice with the option of steak, but we found the atmosphere stuffy and uncomfortable.

The hotel is incredibly close to the A1 which sort of bursts the idyllic bubble, but makes it handy to get to.

All the staff were delightful and we enjoyed a very comfortable stay. I would however expect much higher standards for such a high price.

We stayed at Crab Manor for one night as a wedding anniversary treat. The hotel has several themed rooms and lovely gardens. The room was beautiful, with one of the most comfortable beds I've ever slept in. The service was attentive and helpful. The restaurant/pub at the bottom of the garden is also very good. It's not cheap, but you really get what you pay for.
