Our room was not part of the main house but we liked it. We ordered take out food and the driver was able to find us. There were some awkward stairs, but everything was clean. It was a little out of town but near a bus stop.

This was our base in York, it has nice gardens, the rooms are ok. The restaurant is ok, but next time I will be looking for somewhere else. Being slightly out of town it doesn't do a good enough job on-site to justify staying there again

We booked a night here because we're looking for a good spa hotel nearer than Helmsley. Middlethorpe Hall seemed to fit. The entrance is unprepossessing, the main building is just off the road, not in the middle of parkland as we expected. Our 'deluxe' room in the main building was up two flights of stairs. It was a bigger room...

We are sorry that we did not meet this couple’s expectations and regret that they did not mention anything to us during their visit, as alternative accommodation would have been provided. We do not like to disappoint and we will, of course, consider the comments expressed in this review seriously and objectively, although several are plain wrong on the facts....

Booked a Saturday night with my gf in the hotel, and a spa treatment. Hotel. Greeted by the doorman as soon as we pulled up. A little confusing where to actually stop, but there is a pull in and sign to say so! Then the car park is separate. Check in and shown to our room. Lovely big room overlooking...

The hotel was very luxurious, comfortable and welcoming. The staff were friendly and helpful. I went to the lovely spa for a swim etc which was very nice on a cold January day. I would recommend this hotel to everyone and would love to return soon. Perfect stay.

Ist visit to Middlethorpe - though it is local. Made very welcome, attentive but not intrusive service. Modest menu but perfectly cooked and presented. Coffee in the Large lounge in front to the fire. All in all a very enjoyable evening. Next visit needs to be in daylight to enjoy the surroundings.

I had requested to have our afternoon tea in the library. It's a small private room that overlooks the garden. There was a fire place and two sofas. We were met by the General manager Lionel who made us most welcome and got us settled in our exclusive room. The afternoon tea was excellent and a large range of Teas...

This is our second visit to the stunning Middlethorpe Hall, this time with family and friends and it was thoroughly enjoyed by all. The accommodation was excellent, we had three rooms in the courtyard and two in the main house. I had to change two of the rooms only two weeks before arrival and the reservation staff member was really...

Having visited Middlethorpe Hall over the previous 7 years and never had a complained we were saddened that this stay just didn't cut it. The rooms was fine, the afternoon tea was fine but the dinner was quite horrible. First we were offered drinks in "the library" - sitting about 1m from another couple made for an extremely intimate setting...

I am so sorry that these guests did not enjoy their recent stay as much as any of their numerous previous very successful visits (none of which sadly reviewed). Their dinner experience seems to have been uncharacteristically below par and I will discuss the comments expressed here with both our Head Chef and Restaurant Manager, for further improvement where necessary....

From our welcome to our departure this hotel was excellent. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful and the hotel cat's additional welcome added to our stay! Last time I was less than impressed with the breakfast, but this time it came well up to the standard of the rest of the stay. We had dinner in the restaurant which...
