Sadly, we did not discover the Feversham Arms Hotel until the last day of our holiday in Yorkshire and so could not take full advantage of the Pool Suite's splendid accommodation and facilities. One needs to stay at least two or three nights to fully appreciate the luxury. We loved everything about the hotel, the staff were friendly and relaxed, there was lots of laughter and good humour from them, creating a very good atmosphere. Both dinners were excellent. As the previous writer mentioned, the souffle is superb. We had an amazing breakfast with the best porridge and Whitby kippers we have ever tasted, served with friendly efficiency. There were no 'buts', we believe that this hotel and the surrounding countryside are outstanding.

The Feversham markets itself as a fully pampered get away sort of place, and it is.

THe room we had was a bit tired, for example the decoration was due, the controls for the speaker system for the bathroom fell of the wall when persuaded to work. The TV/DVD?CD library is a good idea.

THe bed and bedding was fantastic. We didn't use the pool, but it looked good, although they have (Polish) builders working on an extension to the side.

The lounge area is wonderful and comforrtable to just chill or take a drink before dinner.

Dinner was very good, but not fantastic. I must say the soufle's are brilliant though.

Breakfast really good.

In summary, go and stay it's good, but might there be better for your money????????????????

We popped in here for a drink on our way to look at a nearby (Michelin Starred) hotel as a wedding venue. Whilst we were having a bit of a surreptitious nosey, one of the staff noticed and asked if we'd like to have a proper look around. We did! It was lovely! We booked immediately! I have never been to a lovelier wedding!! Obviously I'm biased about that - but the whole experience was exceptional, the staff, the room we were married in, the champagne and canapes after the wedding, the dinner, the service, the poolside suite, the breakfast and all our friends and family's rooms - just perfect.

Don't tell anyone else about it.

We stayed in the same room as the previous reviewer (pool suite) and only a few days apart, it sems. Very spooky given the lack of reviews on this hotel! I'm pleased to say that this really is a great find. The pool suite is huge, only built last year I think, with modern decor and a B&O TV / hifi and 2 log fires. My only criticism is that the bathroom layout is not ideal (2 sinks would have been nice) but they were tied to the space available. You are, of course, also overlooking the pool (and a courtyard on the other side) so there is probably little privacy with the curtains open when the pool is busy. Luckily it was freezing cold when we were there!

The restaurant is superb and you won't regret eating at the hotel. The Michelin-starred Star Inn pub is also less than 5 minutes drive away. Food is similar to a trendy London restaurant, with presentation and taste being more important than size. Staff are very friendly and were impressive given the location.

Helmsley itself has loads to offer - very like a Cotswolds village but without the tearooms! The castle, walled gardens and Dunscombe Park country house (close Sats) are literally on your doorstep. If travelling from London, you may find it easier to get a train to York then pick up a car from Hertz or Europcar at the station - both allow drop-offs out of hours.

We popped up to the Feversham Arms for our honeymoon - we only had two days away so decided to splash out on a 'posh' hotel for a night.

Our room was incredible - the biggest bath, comfiest bed, funkiest TV, huge shower, excellent tennis court, picturesque poolside area.

We also had an evening meal at the hotel, whose restaurant they're rightly proud. The food was amazing and the service was very good indeed.

We found all the staff to be excellent. I think the reviewer above slightly missed the point by criticising one of the staff - all the staff we met were courteous and professional but cool and detached. In short, they were like the best waiting staff you'd find in London rather than friendly Yorkshire hotel hosts - personally I'd prefer something between the two.

There were a couple of things that really irritated me, which was a shame. They didn't spoil our stay and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend the place. However, please sort the following out!!!!

- Our lounge room had 'designer' decor, including a statue-type thing of a woman's dress (life-size) made out of saplings. There was also a profile painting of a rabbit on the wall next to it - the combination was very scary, disconcerting and totally 'Wicker Man', I expected Edward Woodward to peer through the window at any moment!

- For a big suite (four rooms) we found the lack of coffee-making facilities surprising. The staff were very good and brought drinks rightaway, but it would be nice to have the option/privacy of making your own drinks.

- The toilet paper was surreal!!!! There were two half rolls of the cheapest horriblist toilet paper we had ever seen, with the softness and absorbancy of low-grade sandpaper. This was shocking - my wife had to nip to the Ladies to get some more, which was of the same poor standard. What a daft thing to let your guests down on - spend a few pence more per roll!

- When we rang to book I asked the person on the other end whether they could make any provision for honeymooners (I wasn't looking for any freebies and offered to pay). I expected him to say yes, we'll arrange flowers, champagne, chocolates or similar for the bride, and to be greeted with 'Congratulations!' when we got there. His response? 'No', and there was no mention that it was the most special day of our lives when we arrived - a slight letdown to say the least.

I would totally recommend this place for a special night away. Helmsley is beautiful and a huge amount of effort has gone into the hotel. We were really pleased with our choice and had a fantastic time. I just hope they can iron out one or two of the glitches mentioned!
