Bad points: Nasty plastic fake wood flooring in bathroom. Bed too hard (I was in a Deluxe room), woke up in the middle of the night with hip ache. Breakfast - half a fried tomato: it was cold, half a mushroom: cold too, two poached eggs: yolks were almost hard, the rest of breakfast was lovely though :)
Nibbles (dried crunchy mini bread-stick type things) to go with drink in the evening a bit pathetic considering price of stay.
There was a slightly 'tired' feeling to some of the decor in my room (a bit of peeling wallpaper next to the headboard), and the upstairs hallways (ghastly looking fire-doors) but maybe that's me being pedantic.
Good points: My room was spacious and clean and I felt very relaxed. I was able to turn the heating down to suit the low temperature I like at night. The view from my windows (on the top floor) was beautiful, a snowy white vista with the trees poking through.
Service was friendly and efficient all round. A very nice waiter found me browsing artefacts in the corridor and asked if I needed anything, I did, a glass of champagne ... which was brought through to the drawing room for me. The same waiter brought a pot of tea to my room in the morning, friendly but non-intrusive, perfect.
Had a very pleasant walk around the grounds in the morning.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Built in 1906, with captivating views of the Leven Valley on the edge of the Yorkshire Moors, Crathorne Hall is at once grand and stately, warm and welcoming. Owned by the Dugdale family until 1977, the hall has played host to politicians, courted royalty and delighted socialites over the decades. Yet despite moving in stately circles, the house has stayed true to its roots as a place of entertainment and relaxation. Now it is yours to explore. Enjoy an overnight stay in one of our 37 bedrooms (17 of which have recently been refurbished following a £4 million restoration of the Hall's East Wing), plan your perfect day and take over the hotel for your wedding or inspire your delegates with our meeting facilities. ... more less
