“Total Relaxation, Boutique hotel Wonderful Spa”
Reviewed April 27, 2010

We went for a Spa break , wonderful friendly staff immaculate hotel throughout
Outdoor heated pool and hot tub perfect. Spa treatments very relaxing had the products recommended but none of the usual pressure to buy them. Most comfortable beds we have ever had away from home. One fault no beverage tray so had to keep ringing reception for room service and it worked out expensive
A must if you want something quiet and relaxing

we were given a voucher for a food lovers break as a wedding present and we enjoyed everything from beggining to end. The welcome from reception staff and trip around the hotel and our room was very informative, ie how to work the telly ( I know it sounds daft but was v high tech) we then had cream tea which was lovely, and included in the package was champagne cocktail and a 6 course tasting menu. The food was really tasty and well presented and all the staff really friendly .
next morning tea and papers delivered to your room, if you want and then a fantastic breakfast buffet with everything on it and full yorkshire breakfast too!

that was the end of our package, but we had booked into the spa, as a birthday treat and we had a pamper me twice spa day for two. all treatments were fantastic and we had a champagne one course lunch in the price.

as others have said, not cheap but for a special occasion it was a lovely treat to be so spoilt.

we live quite close so have been to all the attractions before, so we just had a totally relaxing time.

We booked our mini-moon at Feversham Arms because we didn't want to travel too far after our wedding (lucky as if we had we would have got stuck in the volcano fall-out!) and wanted a complete rest. We were not disappointed. Having requested a double ended bath on booking, and realising we didn't have one when we saw our room, we were quickly moved to another room which actually involved an upgrade. After that our stay was perfect. The room service breakfast, hospitality tray for tea and coffee in the room, amazing restaurant and spa and pool made it a totally memorable mini-moon. Along with a huge number of places to visit within walking distance (Dumcombe Park, Riveaulx Abbey and Terrace, Helmsley Castle) you couldn't pick a nicer hotel.

Our weekend at the Feversham Arms was a christmas present and it was a truly magical experience.On arrival we were relieved of our car and luggage and shown the facilities.By the time we were shown our room the cases had arrived and everything was explained to us(how to order your early morning tea/coffee,TV,CD,DVD operation).The staff made us feel extremely welcome and their knowledge of the local area was faultless(ie the best pub to go to and enjoy the late afternoon sunshine-cheers Chris,the daffodil walk in Ferndale-cheers Catherine,the wine list -cheers Ian).My only dissappointment was having to leave. It's not the cheapest of hotels but you get what you pay for and this was quality of service ,food and friendliness that you will find difficult to beat,we will be back...Debbie and Andrew room 3

We have just returned from a 2 night stay at the Feversham Arms, to celebrate my husbands birthday. The suite we had under the eaves, with its own log fire was relaxing and charming , an hour n the bath with the complimentary candles, insence and bubbles was just what a harrassed Mum of two needed to relax. The food was amazing and the wine list extensive. The staff were helpful, friendly and attentive and always had a friendly good morning when delivering the complimentary room service breakfast, with extra bacon for my husband. The spa and pool were delightful too, outside swimming in april was not originally on the plan! I would recomed one of the character room, ours room 19 was very quiet as it had its owm stair case. I also loved the turn down service that also cleaned the bathroom and replaced the towels! We will be back as soon as we can find a baby sitter for the kids, its too good to waste on them!

My wife and I had a recent one night stay at this hotel, along with friends, and found everything to be excellent. We were upgraded ( because the hotel was quiet midweek?) and had a lovely room. Switching the TV and music systems on and off was quite a challenge but we eventually mastered it! The room was spacious and comfortable.
We had the taster menu, with wines, in the snug part of the restaurant in the evening ( the main section was not used as it was so quiet) and it was excellent, although quite expensive.
The breakfast was also first class, with a buffet style continental breakfast on display, and waitress service for any cooked items required. We could not fault this.
The staff were all extremely helpful and pleasant throughout the hotel..
We did not have an opportunity to use the Spa, due to our short stay, but it looked to be very good, when we had a quick tour.
The underground car park was ideal in the snowy weather and although work was going on it did not inconvenience us in any way.
On our previous visits to Helmsley we had stayed in the Black Swan and felt that the Faversham Arms was better if somewhat more expensive.
Helmsley is also a very nice village with excellent shops. It is good to visit clothes shops which are not part of a chain.
We would recommend both this hotel and Helmsley and would be happy to return in the future.

Just returned from the Feversham Arms and just loved every minute. We booked a standard room as that was the only double room available at the time when I tried to book about a month ago. I was very disappointed with the room as it felt rather claustrophobic and the bath was very dated but we managed to get moved into one of the fabulous spa suites. This was truly awesome and when I return I shall try and book one of those. The staff were absolutely charming and helpful, cannot fault any of the staff. The reception staff were particularly helpful. I had massages and facials in the Verbena Spa which were superb. This is a great place for a chill out. We stayed dinner, bed and breakfast and loved the early morning tea and papers delivered to your room at your requested time. I could not fault this hotel and I`m a very fussy well seasoned traveller. I`ll be back soon.
