Excellent service and friendly staff

Perfect hotel and location for a short break; excellent friendly service, fantastic breakfasts and good clean spa.

Mixed feelings

Front of house staff were lovely.

The big disappointment was the service in the restaurant. Table booked for 8.15pm, it was 9.45pm before we got our main course!. The quality was also disappointing. We were told it was because the kitchen was "very busy", not a very valid excuse as they know how many diners they are catering for. We were not offered anything in the way of compensation ( one would at least expect a free drink or money off the bill). The same thing happened 2 nights later in the bar . Would have to think hard about returning as the stay was not cheap.

Over priced but nice

Very nice hotel with good but not great facilities.

The Gym is very small, 2 treadmills, 2 bikes. The pool was nice but dodge the kids time if you want to swim. Room and batchroom very nice. The hotel is very very expensive, I would say double what it should be, for 1 night I could literally have gone to spain for a weeks holiday. Finally, the staff were lovely and couldnt do enough for you.

Outstanding local staff, locally sourced food, and wonderful hospitality.

This is our second visit at Raithwaite Hall.

We were so impressed with our first visit that we took our Canadian friends who were here on holiday on this second trip. It all lived up to our expectations. The weather was so good we had the opportunity to explore locally - this venue ticks every box!

The staff were a amazing and thanks to Simon and Harry who may our stay very special with their excellent skills and quality of customer care.

I think the design of the hotel could be improved and the bar area and adjoining room has something missing. The gardens are beautiful. Thank you

"The Best Spa Break Ever"

The estate is in a fantastic location, the rooms, restaurant, food and leisure facilities are first class, but the main plus, was the friendliness, helpfulness and efficiency of the staff, they were a delight!.

I would recommend and revisit without hesitation

Excellent choice for my wife's birthday

Friendly atmosphere throughout.

I asked for a upgraded room and our bedroom,at the top end of the hotel had a wonderful view up the valley. The room provided everything we could ask for especially the large tinted flattering mirror on the main wall. The bathroom was good but I managed to soak the floor when using the shower because the shower screen was below the height of the shower. The one nights stay couldn't be bettered.
