We booked 2 nights here via booking.com and were delighted to be upgraded to a very spacious and comfortable suite in the courtyard. The building itself and the grounds are magnificent and the staff well trained and friendly. We had no criticisms really although my partner found the food at dinner a bit rich. Do try the breakfast pancakes!

This hotel offers something different and special which makes it unique to other hotels in the area. However that's not the only reason to rate Middlethorpe Hall so highly. First of all the staff are excellent, which is critical when it comes to a hotel stay. They provided us with small little touches which just made that difference. Being able...

When we were invited to go to Scotland for a family wedding, the urge to stop over at Middlethorpe on the way up and back was overwhelming. Nothing changes: welcoming staff, lovely bedrooms, a very comfortable lounge, and excellent food served by friendly, knowledgeable and attentive staff. It is difficult find more to add to our earlier reviews. This is...

My friend and I recently visited this hotel for a Spa break. First impressions WOW! The hotel main building; the outbuildings and the grounds and setting are spectacular - very 'Pride & Prejudice', you could easily have expected Mr Darcy to come striding down the steps, but alas he did not! The receptionist was not particularly welcoming, ignoring us for...

Nice hotel, beautiful setting on the outskirts of York, but......... sadly we felt the hotel was lacking in attention to detail. Ordered tea on our first evening, it arrived without milk, rang to get milk, nothing arrived, eventually tea arrived 40 minutes later. Had to ask for bathroom toiletries as they weren't replaced and they never arrived. Both mornings the...

We are sorry that these guests did not fully enjoy their recent two night stay. Attention to the detail of our guests’ experience is indeed paramount to us, and the comments made have been constructively discussed with the team to avoid reoccurrence. We also hope that these guests enjoyed other aspects of their visit. The size of some of our...

Beautiful building and wonderful grounds. Overall a lovely time but several things which could be improved on. The bath, which previous clients had complained about too, had a sealed shower screen which meant you could only turn on the taps or shower by getting in the bath; the menu was unduly complicated - 5 different menus which could only be...

This is the second time in 15 years that we have stayed here. We came again because we enjoyed it so much last time. The hotel is a beautiful old building with gorgeous gardens surrounding it. It is close to York (although best to drive there rather than walk). The rooms are all gorgeously furnished and very comfortable. The food...

We chose this hotel based on the reviews on Tripadvisor and we were not disappointed. On arrival we were greeted by the friendly staff who made you feel right at home and given an up-grade which always helps. Being a national trust property gives you a good idea of the decor etc and you certainly feel like The Lord of...
