“Stately house stay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 16, 2013

This hotel makes you feel like you've been invited to stay in a Stately Home! The bedrooms are named after the local villages and ours was huge, complete with walk -in wardrobe and a huge fire place. Bathroom was warm as was the towels from the heated towel rail. Dinner and breakfast was superb as was the service. Not much to see in the area so a stort stay is probably best.

Room Tip: Lord Crathorns room is fit for the Queen

Myself and 5 of my family stayed overnight at Crathorne Hall last week, after a wedding menu tasting evening.

The food was faultless, the staff fantastic and the accommodation spacious, quiet and sumptous. I would definately recommend Crathorne Hall and can't wait to spend 2 nights there for my wedding in September!

Many thanks for a wonderful evening!

My husband and I recently married at Crathorne Hall on Saturday 4th May 2013, and would like to praise the staff for all that they did for us. Nothing was too much trouble and the day ran so smoothly because of their efficiency.

We live in Australia so planning a wedding from overseas was difficult at times, but with Amy's continual help over the months we were able to have our perfect day without any hassle.
Also, we'd like to mention Libby and Lucy who were our brilliant toastmasters for the day, they did a fantastic job. Many of our friends and family commented on how friendly and helpful all of the staff were from start to finish.

The venue is beautiful, perfect for photographs of your special day, and the rooms are amazing.

We would highly recommend Crathrone to anyone looking for a beautiful wedding venue. We will always look back on our weeding day knowing that we picked the perfect place.

Crathorne Hall Hotel, Near Yarm, North Yorkshire is part of the Hand Picked Hotel Group and on Saturday 13th April 2013 we held our wedding there. Crathorne Hall is a wonderful Stately home set in beautiful grounds.

The hotel has a very warm and friendly feel to it and as soon as you walk through the doors you are greeted by helpful and friendly staff.

While planning our wedding at Crathorne the Sales Team and Wedding Co-ordinator were very helpful, we attended various Wedding Showcases and Wedding Fayres held at Crathorne and managed to pick up loads of ideas and contact, everybody at Crathorne Hall were happy to help.

The ceremony room and drawing room in Crathorne are magnificent as are all the rooms, and as soon as you enter these rooms you get a majestic feeling, you feel totally special.

The food for our wedding was amazing; the attention to detail on such a large party was phenomenal, it was fine dining at its best. The young Chef Alan Robinson was very helpful and planned menus for our Gluten Free guests and small children, even the evening buffet was exceptional the choice was incredible and the taste was to die for, I never knew that buffet food could look and taste this good.

Our wedding day was very special and having the Wedding Ceremony and Wedding Breakfast at Crathorne Hall made it just magical. It doesn’t feel like a Hotel it feels like HOME and that’s down to the wonderful people who work there.

We would highly recommend Crathorne Hall whether it’s for lunch, afternoon tea, evening meal, overnight stay and most definitely for the special day in your life “Your Wedding Day”.

Pick Crathorne Hall Hotel and you won’t be disappointed.

Sandi & Paul McKeown

Room Tip: All rooms are wonderful.

I had previously stayed at this hotel some 15 years ago, when Richard Branson was in charge.
As a regular business visitor, it was a last minute booking, that didn't say visit us soon!
However, time moves on, and having arranged to book a corporate event in the area, our normal hotel was fully booked. Enter trip advisor, and having booked said rooms, I decided to check out Crathorne at the end of April.
I can only say, that we we were not disappointed, from reception,bar and restaurant,staff were amazing, nothing was too much trouble, and everyone went the extra mile.
Dinner and a wonderful freshly cooked breakfast, were very enjoyable.
I can only say, we can't wait until August for our return to Crathorne

Once again another fantastic stay at Crathorne! A wonderful fire-side surprise afternoon tea, with Michael looking after us and making us feel extremely welcome, was followed by dinner in the evening - again at our favourite spot in front of the fireplace. To top it all off we were given our favourite Welbury room with views across the Leven Valley and gardens, this time with the added bonus of a birthday card and chocolates from the Crathorne team.

The team were once again amazing, truly making it a 40th birthday to remember. We will see you again soon!
