Pricey but good quality.
Pleasant luxurious accommodation. Beautiful gardens to sit or stroll in. Good pool spa area. Good dining facilities and a superb breakfast. Very close to Whitby.

Executive view?
Newly built to a high standard. Excellent customer service but felt "scripted" at times. Having paid extra for an "Executive Double" the room was disappointing and really more like "standard" accommodation e.g. the view from the window was of a brick wall. The restaurant food was good but did not justify the high price on a limited menu.

Surprise family visit
As always, amazing service and a fabulous location. A few hours in the spa is just what we needed to relax. The room was perfect and the breakfast buffet could not be better. Can't wait to stay again.

Breakaway
The hotel, food, grounds are all very good and is certainly a nice play to stay. what let this place down was simply customer service. I was taking my pregnant girlfriend away for a relaxing two days and there was building work going on at 7am and went on for hours. we did tell the hotel but they simply said sorry, it would of been nice to of had a gesture of goodwill, but nothing. and the staff were very rude who could see my girlfriend was heavily gone.
