It was a Christmas present to my husband. I booked the Taylor make break and chose a spa treatment for us both. The whole experience was excellent. Our room was lovely and overlooked the garden. The spa and treatments were first class and we would highly recommend the experience. So pleased we booked in advance as they appear to be...

This was a two night stop over after visiting the north. What a wonderful experience. Our room on the top floor overlooking gardens was furnished in the style befitting a house of its age. My great joy was that the sash windows has not been "painted shut" so we were able to enjoy fresh air (even in January) and to...

This was the second Christmas we've spent at Middlethorpe and it was great to find that their standards remain as high as ever. This time one of our party was elderly and frail and I was touched to see that the staff took care of her with all the tenderness old age requires. She was escorted not only up and...

We stayed at Middlethorpe Hall for two nights on a trip to the North of England, and what a superb experience it was. Wonderful welcome, clean room, great service in the spa and restaurant and fabulous food. We could not have asked for better, and are planning another visit.

The loss of the excellent French Maître d from this hotel is showing now. Since our last visit six months ago I regret to say that this visit was far from excellent, as it has been in the past. The room was still very nice but finding a long black hair on the bath mat and stray bottle of lotion...

Her comments - already shared with the Duty Manager at the time of her departure – have been constructively received and discussed with the team. They will help us to further...

We recently attended the three-day Christmas Holiday weekend at Middlethorpe. It was the best Christmas gift we could have given ourselves. The house and grounds are lovely. The staff is friendly and will go out of their way to make your stay special. The food was spectacular. I can see us coming back as a destination visit as we did...

My husband and I got married at Middlethorpe Hall on 17th December 2016. I arrived at the hotel on 15th December and with great thanks to the porter - I had help unpacking my car and taking my many many bags to my room. I was staying in the Duke of York Suite. It is a very special room, very...

Lovely hotel with very helpful people to help make stay as relaxed and stress free as possible. We particularly enjoyed the lounge where the service and room were just lovely. We reallllly wanted to open one of the presents under the tree but decided the threat of being on Santas naughty list just too much! Would recommend it.

Me and my partner stayed for 2 nights, wow we were impressed! Our room was outstanding, with views over the garden. The hotel is in a beautiful location and about 15 minutes bus ride to the town. The minute we arrived we felt very welcomed and that nothing was ever to much to ask. The restaurant is lovely, with a...

This is our favourite hotel. It is expensive but you get what you pay for. A beautiful historic house in lovely grounds; welcoming staff and silver service. Delicious food with some interesting dishes. The room serviced whilst you have breakfast. Swimming pool and spa. This was our first time staying for New Year. The residents for this celebration were mainly...
