Feversham Arms Hotel & Verbena Spa
Ranked #4 of 4 Hotels in Helmsley
Reviewed February 27, 2014

We enjoyed an overnight stay at the Feversham Arms as a late Valentine's treat. We received a pleasant welcome and were quickly shown to our room. The room was very spacious and well appointed, the bathroom was modern, clean and had luxurious toiletries. There was a generous and wide range of tea and coffee in the room. The bed was very comfortable and the pillows were wonderful. We had booked a food lovers break and enjoyed the warm scones and tea on arrival. We chose the tasting menu for dinner and although the food was delicious the service deteriorated during the meal. As the restaurant got busier, the staff became more rushed and less attentive and the food was almost slammed down in front of us. We enjoyed the break but probably wouldn't choose to return.

Room Tip: If you want a quiet room ask for one that doesn't overlook the pool as even in February there we...

We attended for a special 65th Birthday treat for my mum to the Spa. The spa was a lot smaller than I had imagined. The lounge seats look quite dirty/shabby and the facilities are a lot smaller than I imagined. The hot tub had children in for over 40 minutes at one point. Another guest complained and they were told to get out. Having booked a special spa day to relax from children I didn't expect to compete with them for time in a hot tub (they must not have been more than 8 years old) they need more than one hot tub as the rest of the afternoon another couple hogged it most of the time with champagne bottle. Two hot tubs and better access into hot tub for those with mobility problems, the spa got busy in the afternoon and is not big enough for that amount of people and to feel as though you can relax. The staff were excellent.

we went on saturday for a night and stayed in an executive suite, used the spa and had a meal on the night. the meal was awful the room wasnt great very dated and rough around the edges. the pool and hot tub were closed at 7 as was the spa facilities. the full body massage i had was very good, the highlight of the trip infact! but i would give this one a miss it was very dissapointing and the bed was old and springy to, limescale all over the bathroom tiles! the place needs a makeover and the food wouldnt feed a small child it was so miniscule :(

Stayed 2 nights mid Feb. in a spa suite on an offer. The suite was cosily furnished with top class styling and comfort. Hot water copious and spacious double sink bathroom as well as excellent bath and shower facilities. Staff very welcoming and imn formative both in reception and restaurant. Dinner given 10/10 and breakfast excellently cooked. Been coming here since 2005 and found the standards remain in the highest order. Also impressed at how busy the hotel was. Will definitely return.

Room Tip: Look for the offers and, if in your price range, go gor the higher range suites - I doubt you will b...

Enjoyed being pampered with a frangipani wrap and a facial. Busy spa but still felt warm, quiet and relaxing. Outside heated pool area really good. Hotel rooms clean and decor lovely. Box of chocolates in our room as it was someone's birthday. Elemis toiletries. Meals really nice. Got our bar bill wrong and overcharged so had to rectify on departure which was a bit of a pain. Had a lovely six mile walk to Riveaux abbey then cup of tea in a cafe on return to Helmsley. Would highly recommend for girls weekend break or couples. Fire alarm went off three times during the evening, vacated once but no-one bothered again and staff didn't say what the problem was so probably someone smoking in their room!

Only came in for lunch as friends had had an excellent Sunday lunch here. Food was only available in the lounge area which wasn't ideal as the comfy seats were quite low and only a coffee table to put your plate on. It was workable but a proper table would have been better. Fairly limited menu but the chicken with bacon and Brie, chips and salad was very good as was the burger. Would go back but would make sure the dining room was open. Staff were helpful. Nice decor and underground car parking perfect, especially on market day.

Set in the picturesque village of Helmsley is the Feversham Arms Hotel.

This four star hotel is all you would expect, the welcome is warm, the accommodation amazing and the surroundings are understated yet very stylish.

I stayed with my mum and 6 yr old son so we had a deluxe suite -room 30. The room is gorgeous. The sitting room is completely separate from the bedroom which was perfect for us as my son slept on the sofa bad which was great for him. HOWEVER this room is noisy. It is situated at the front of the hotel opposite a church whose bells chime from 8am - 10pm, in the middl of the day this is every 15 minutes. The bedroom wall has the floating staircase on the other side from the lobby of the hotel. So whenever anyone goes up or down the stairs it sounds like someone is climbing a metal ladder the other side of your head. You can also hear voices and the reception phone ring. So as comfy as the bed may be it is not a peaceful room, a shame as this,took the shine off the stay at a beautiful but certainly not cheap hotel.

Stayed February 2014, travelled with family

Room Tip: Room 30 at the front was very noisy - see above.
