“Elegant "country home" with amazing service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 May 2012

Imagine yourself in the English countryside, walking in the gardens with Mr. Darcy. If that idea appeals to you, then find some time to stay at Middlethorpe Hall. The main house is gorgeous and the coach houses looked lovely. The service was amazing, exactly what you expect from a stately hall. I was there for a business meeting, but suspect that most stay for leisure. The only downside to Middlethorpe Hall is that it is about 2.5 miles outside of York, so a taxi is needed to get to/from the city center - which is equally charming. I would think this would be a great weekend retreat - either for a couple or a group of girlfriends (there is a spa)!

Room Tip: I was in the main house, Lady Mary's suite. Three small rooms that flowed together - the living...

We stayed in a deluxe double room at this glorious hotel as part of our anniversary treat. We fell totally in love with the place!!!!
It looks like it has walked straight off of a page from a Jane Austin novel and the furnishings and gorgeous paintings complete the elegant atmosphere.
The staff were very friendly and respectful and nothing was too much trouble for them. I requested an iron and ironing board to be sent to the room, and it was there in a jiffy!!!
Our room was in the main house and was beautiful!! It was very clean and well maintained and the heavenly 'Crabtree and Evelyn' toiletries, just added to the feeling that we were being thoroughly spoiled.
We didn't eat dinner here, but partook of drinks on the lawn in the warm sunshine!! Idyllic, if a little pricey!!
We didn't get a chance to sample the Spa, but this just gives us another good reason to return to this lovely place!!
Breakfast was lovely. My husband had the full Yorkshire and I had the pancakes - both delicious!!!
If you are looking for an elegantly beautiful place to stay in this amazing city, look no further than the Miidlethorpe. We truly did not want to check out and will return very soon!!!

We have just returned from a wonderful weekend staying at Middlethopre Hall. It is our second visit and will not be our last. Everything about the place is excellent. Food, service, surroundings, staff, rooms are all first class.
The Hotel is very relaxing and just the sort of place to have a romantic break.

Room Tip: we stayed in a standard courtyard room and would have no hesitation of staying there again. cannot c...

We stayed on Friday night....my birthday treat from my partner. We had room 30 in the coach house which was nicely decorated and lovely and quiet. We enjoyed a lovely back massage each and a swim in the spa and then dinner in the hotel.

While the restaurant lacked a little atmosphere the food more than made up for it. It really was very good especially the quail starter and the lovely lamb main course. Wine was good value and service excellent.

Breakfast was great,,,,,and we enjoyed a nice walk in he grounds before shopping in york. A really nice stay and we will be back.

After a week of staying right in the center of London, it was a pleasure to go to York and stay at Middlethorpe Hall. My husband and I selected this hotel because of its location (outside of the city, but within easy walking distance to the center of York) and due to its extremely interesting history.

We were absolutely blown away by the excellent service and wonderful facilities at this hotel. The staff was exceptionally helpful and friendly. The meals we had at the hotel were absolutely delicious. The amenities in our room (homemade shortbread, tons of magazines to flip through, and some vintage books about life in Yorkshire) made it such fun just to relax at Middlethorpe Hall.

I would strongly recommend this hotel to any travelers looking to experience a different type of hotel travel than what you'd typically get at a chain hotel. Our stay at this hotel will be a fond memory for both my husband and myself and I'm grateful to the staff for maintaining such a wonderful property for visitors to enjoy.
