Reviewed 2 April 2015

Location and the setting (on the edge of Whitby) gives this hotel a natural advantage with a large driveway leading into woodlands before reaching the hotel which is about half a mile from the main road. Free parking, staff were great, check in easy/quick and rooms in the main building were great for detail if a little small for the price, I did like the bedroom being upstairs made it more romantic somehow.

We used the pool/sauna which were all clean (perhaps they may what to use some scents in the steam room, just a hint) and a useful feature.

Bar was fine, staff were nice in hear, food again what you would expect so we really did not have any issues. Free car parking.

Tip have breakfast at the beach café (turn left out of hotel driveway), 5 min walk, great views/food and cheap with a good vibe, was always busy when we went (good sign) but we always got a seat.

Also very good for walking either short or longer ones.

Room Tip: Rooms in the main part of the hotel very good, on the beach just 5 mins down the road we found a gre...

We chose Raithwaite as we have dogs and they have a superb puppy spa which the dogs loved and would highly recommend!

We had a fantastic meal on the first night in the restaurant, service was fabulous and the food was great.

Breakfast the first morning was a little disappointing however we take responsibility as we arrived at 9.45am just before they finished serving and numerous items had run out, and although we asked for them they didn't arrive.

Had a lovely walk with the dogs and as mentioned they enjoyed a good clean in the spa- even the 12 week puppy loved her first puppy groom!

We were booked into the spa which really let the whole trip down! The manicures and pedicures missed out on massages and exfoliations as "they couldn't remove the gels" the staff had clearly not had relevant training, as this over ran without telling us the facial was changed from a long luxury one to a 30 minute cleanse and tone! Also my sister received a cut in her manicure to which the manager said "it happens" This is very disappointing as the staff member didn't even mention it and just changed the treatment! Had I known I would have opted for something else as I can do that myself! On speaking to the spa lady at the reception just to feedback on our disappointment she was short offering all sorts of incorrect excuses and no apologies! Very disappointing! The girls doing the treatment were very friendly it's just a shame their training and management let it down.

On a better note the lunch of ploughmans and pate in the bar was superb and the staff (even though the chap said he had just started) was brilliant efficient and very polite!

It's such a shame the spa let it down as we probably won't return!
