My hubby and I along with four friends have just stayed for the weekend at this lovely hotel just outside Whitby. It was a delight from start to finish. Obviously an old country house at hotel . It’s set in quiet well kept grounds with large well appointed, clean and rooms with a hint of the old days about them. Sumptuous longe to relax
We had a fabulous breakfast. Plenty of it and then ate in the hotel reseats night an excellent 3 course meal with complimentary fizz for £20, don’t know how they did it, but the food was amazing. The staff were delightful, chatty, not too in your face but attentive
Well, we’ve booked now to return for New year it was that good.

Room tip: Some don’t have baths only showers, so ask

Arrived after cycling from the West coast to be told that no food is served after 8:30pm. “our kitchen staff like to be off home by 9pm” was the response we got. ...Much to the surprise of the lady who checked us out the next morning- she apologised for the staff not offering to prepare a light bite to take up to the room.

There is also no dining room service available at this hotel which is poor.

The grounds and building look lovely however we’d advise to bring something to eat or be prepared to travel out for dinner if you arrive after 8:30pm.

Main Pros:
Lovely looking hotel
Close to Whitby

Main Cons:
You will need a car to get there
No lift
No food after 8:30pm

I am sorry to read your feelings towards your stay with us. We are a rural country hotel with a small team who work hard to make our guests feel welcomed and comfortable. As with any restaurant there is always a cut off point for service, our dining times are 6-8.30pm each evening. I have spoken with the team member involved on your check in who has stated that on late arrival you were advised that the restaurant was closed however you were offered a sandwich or snack at that time. Room service is available for breakfast and dinner, however again this is not a 24 hour service and times are limited.
In terms of further cons, we are a period building in a rural location accessible by car with no area for a lift shaft, however we offer an abundance of ground floor rooms when requested.
Kind regards

A beautiful tranquil spot hidden away from the coast road,
Stayed overnight last summer, unfortunately they were fully booked this year! Fab room with four poster bed overlooking the immaculate grounds. Very good value for money.

Lovely hotel set in beautiful grounds and really tranquil location perfect for “a get away from it all” break. Rooms are comfortable and individually furnished. The staff were exceptionally friendly and polite and nothing was too much trouble (esp Lizzie). Food was superb and great quality with a menu full of choice, will definitely be re visiting.

I so wanted to love this hotel as it had been recommended.
No receptionist in the cramped (was this actually reception?) area upon arrival so had to go looking for someone to book in. Rather disgruntled lady helped us (although, in fairness, she was pleasant during our stay).
Our room was large with more storage space than we’ve ever had in a hotel before.
The hard mattress made sitting in bed to read a book most uncomfortable.
The room was furnished with what looked like items from a house clearance.
Power points awkwardly situated so had to crawl under dressing table to plug in hairdryer. The kettle had to be left on the floor to boil as the cable wasn’t long enough to place on table.
The bathroom was modern with free-standing bath and nice shower cubicle with rainfall shower head. Well, it would have been nice if the water didn’t suddenly run icy cold every time it was used.....
The bar room on the ground floor was small and cramped with large wing chairs (albeit comfortable) taking valuable space. Walls were oak-lined which made the small room very gloomy. The varnished tables were extremely sticky.
The restaurant dinners were good as were the breakfast choices. Dining room much brighter with lots of windows.
I wouldn’t like to work with the housekeeping team. Their job must have been hard with so many awkward places to keep clean so you’ll find many missed areas.
Nice touches were the lounge’s ‘help yourself’ late afternoon sherry offering and the complimentary glass of sparkling wine with dinner. By the way, the £99 dinner, bed & breakfast deal includes a 3-course meal, not the usual 2. Very good value - except a Saturday night stay in an executive room costs well over £200.
Take care when you leave the hotel as the narrow stone-walled exit bears witness to the number of vehicles that haven’t been lucky. There is an overflow car park with more space; the parking area nearer the hotel entrance is very limited and it’s awkward to park.
Also, the road from Sandsend to the hotel is a 1-mile long, narrow one-track lane with NO passing places. Recommend you turn left when leaving the hotel as there are frequent passing places along that lane.

Date of stay: May 2018
