We stayed here for my 40th birthday last Friday on the Great Yorkshire Escape offer. Unfortunately we arrived too late to enjoy the cream tea on arrival but never the less this offer is a fantastic deal. Our room was beautiful, glad we didn't upgrade for an extra £30 as this room was perfect, spacious but warm & cosy, large comfy bed, molton brown toiletries, superbly cleaned & the chocolates & birthday message were a lovely touch. We had a drink in the bar before our meal & were shown the signature 6 course tasting menu & wine list. The restaurant was a beautiful intimate dining room but also cosy & welcoming. Our waitress Cat was lovely, really made us feel at ease - friendly, chatty, attentive & knowledgable about the menu & enormous cheese trolley! The food was faultless, we enjoyed every single course. My husband's favourite was the monkfish & mine was the melt in your mouth steak. My birthday was made really special by the sharing dessert served on a large slate with happy birthday written in chocolate sauce across the top in such a beautiful style & of course the complimentary champagne!
Room service breakfast was fabulous, I highly recommend the scrambled eggs with smoked salmon.
All the staff were lovely, nothing was too much trouble, we didn't want to go home! We will definitely be returning on our next special occasion.
