My partner and I went for a two night break and I was pleasantly surprised when we approached the grounds of the hotel. Not only was there the main hotel but also cottages which are dog friendly on the drive up to the hotel. The hotel and cottages are set on beautifully maintained grounds, there are two car parks and...

Reconnecting with school friends not seen for 35 years, Raithwaite was the perfect place to get together. The cottage was spacious and comfortable in which to catch up with stories, news, 'do you remember...', whilst cosy and warm. The spa a great place to relax and the restaurants served delicious meals. A special treat was the courtesy driving to our...

My partner and I were looking for somewhere to take a relaxing spa break as a Christmas gift from my parents. We chose Raithwaite Hall based on its location close to the coast and the North Yorkshire Moors. We had a really lovely time. We arrived midweek to a very warm welcome. Our room was ready a little early so...

My wife and I stayed at the property for 3 nights. We had booked a larger room which had two levels and we asked to change this as the stairs were difficult for my wife. No problem and although the room we changed to was much smaller it was comfortable. The staff were very attentive and couldn't do enough for...

Enjoyed a night's stay. Comfortable room number 207 Had a good swim. Pool is small but relaxing. Good evening meal but slow service. Disappointing breakfast. Full English was over cooked whilst poached eggs were cold and toast only done on one side. Shame because lovely setting in airy conservatory. Hotel has lovely grounds.

Just spent two days here, stayed in The Keep not the main house. Welcoming staff especially the lovely Jordan who couldn't have been nicer. Sadly the room did not justify the very high rate, tap loose on the basin, room cold when we went in, no instructions on the air con which was a nightmare as no openable windows for...

We visited in march 2017, the welcome to our room was very friendly (if a bit too much information at once.) The room had a lovely decor, a balcony, was a good size and the bathroom facilities were great. Toiletries and water were replenished as you needed with no fuss and sometimes with no asking. Lovely surroundings, so pretty and...
