"An excellent place to stay."
This is an excellent hotel. The staff are attentive and helpful. The food is excellent. We will definitely return next time we are in the area. Do not be deterred because it is on the outskirts of Whitby, it is just a few minutes of easy driving into town.

"Resort Hotel in Fall"
The hotel was a little remote from town so you would need transportation to get into the downtown area. The hotel is very modern and comfortable with a balcony off the room. We were there in cooler weather so we could not really use the outdoors much. We were given a room in the secondary building (room included coffee/tea setup with biscuits). The main building with the spa, gym, pool and restaurants was a short walk (5 minutes) up the road. The spa facilities were nice and I used the gym, saunas and pool. They offered a breakfast at the hotel for additional cost, which was a bit steep. We don't eat that much food for breakfast so we did not have it. We did have a drink and appetizers in the bar area which was pleasant. We did not eat in the hotel restaurant.

"One of the best hotels I have stayed at"
A beautiful hotel with absolutely no issues (and I'm picky). We walked in with back packs and muddy boots having just completed the coast to coast walk. We were in need of a comfortable bed, good shower, massage and a drink and were not disappointed on any front. The staff could not have been more friendly or helpful. The location is just outside Whitby and surrounded by beautiful gardens. Wait until check in to book breakfast as it was cheaper then and well worth it. Will definitely be back.

The Raithwaite hotel is an excellant place to stay. lovely grounds and helpful friendly staff. its a great location to get away from it all. There is a spa on site which is expensive than most but if you can treat yourself then am sure would b great. there is a buggy to get you to & from the different locations on site. nothing is too much trouble for the staff. highly recommend! i would add when booking ask to stay at The Keep as ground floors have own patio area within the grounds with seating area. lovely to sit out with your cup of Yorkshire Tea in the morning!

A lovely hotel - ideal base for great dog walks. Lovely Woodland/'on the tops' walk from the estate to SandsEnd - follow the public footpath signs to the rear of the deluxe pet friendly rooms, nice pet friendly pub too in SandsEnd - Hart Inn. Wonderful night away, very good meal in Brace restaurant. Breakfast v good too - plenty choice.

"Our first visit to Raithwaite"
This was our first stay at Raithwaite. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Peter assisted us with our luggage and also suggested some local places to see. It is a very nice estate, very clean and well managed. The garden area is very beautiful and serene. Nice spa and pool. A upscale ambiance with a down to earth staff. Would suggest for a wedding, vow renewal any special occasion. Although on the more expensive side it is well worth it, if you desire quality.

We had to request an alternative room as the first one had a view of a wall! The second one was a Lovely room but unfortunately there was no air conditioning so the room was too warm. We requested a fan but were informed that they were all in use. I did not sleep well and used a cold wet facecloth to try and stay cool. Not what you would expect for a hotel of this standard or price. It was however a lovely hotel but given the poor sleep quality and lack of resolution from the hotel we probably won't stay again

Raithwaite Hall was absolutely lovely. The staff were welcoming, friendly and extremely helpfull. The rooms were spacious and very clean, and furnished to an excellent standard. The restaurant was wonderful, with a nice variety of dishes. Not all staff had name badges so i cannot correctly name them but the reception staff, bar staff and Louise from the restaurant were all very proffessional but still maintained a nice friendly atmosphere. Not too stuffy. Will definitely visit again. Excellent location, just far enough away from the bustle of Whitby, but near enough to make it accessable.

"Relaxing break"
Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. First night we ate in the Poachers Inn in the Keep. Food and service both excellent and glad of the golf buggy transport! Good breakfasts and lovely rooms. We took our best friends and tended to have a 'cuppa' in their room as they had a settee and chairs for all of us. Requested extra cups to save taking ours there and they were very quickly produced. Spa was a bonus - we swam when it rained. The Hall nestled in superb grounds and the garden behind the Hall was perfect. Great location for exploring Whitby (about 2to3 miles away)and beautiful bay of Sandsend on the doorstep. Also close to Staithes and Robin Hoods Bay. Surrounding countryside worth visiting too.

"Amazing hotel!!"
Myself and some friends stayed here for a 1 night break. This has got to be the best hotel I've ever stayed in. We booked 3 rooms. Upon arrival got free upgrade to the keep. Which is the luxury part of the estate. Staff service is brilliant. Nothing is to much trouble. We visited the spa twice. First time was very noisy but the 2nd day was perfect. Only downside is that drinks are quite expensive at the bar. We are definintley planning on returning to this hotel.

"Pleasant but a bit disappointing"
A mixed experience. Positively, most staff were friendly and welcoming and it was a great location. However, rooms were small and the quality of the fixtures not great so some basic stuff did not work. Customers seemed a bit of an inconvenience for some staff, particularly in the spa. The facilties and grounds were good but perhaps overhyped in the literature. Food was a reasonable standard but overpriced for what it was and we did not always get what we ordered and had to send back to the kitchen. A pleasant stay but a little disappointing in places.

"Disappointed"
Had to move rooms from hall moved to the keep. The walls of the rooms were thin and could hear everything in the next door room, showers running, toilets flushing, voices etc. Carpet in room ripped so tripped over coming out of the bathroom Received a knock on the door on the Sunday whilst in the room didn't answer and they proceeded to walk in to leave a note to state we could move into the hall for the sat night stay, basically no one else were in the keep on the Sunday night. Food menu was the same for both nights we stayed Would not class this hotel as a luxury stay

The stay certainly had potential. Sadly on the first night we were unable to sleep due to a “hunting” party drinking and shouting below our window until 1am. Reception were informed and the party asked to be quiet though still they stayed. Only rain seemed to move them indoors – not what I expected from a luxury hotel and more like a camping site. General the staff were very polite and the surrounding estate well kept. The spar area was “ok”. We enjoyed the rest of the weekend with trips out. On discussing with partner, we decided that we wouldn't be going back. On a separate point - the picture used in advertising is not the building that you stay in!!!

Lovely hotel, excellent staff, breakfast and dinner very good. We were located in the Keep, separate from the main hotel. The staff were very apologetic and offered golf buggy rides to and from the main building but far from satisfactory after a lovely swim and steam room, a draughty golf buggy ride outside, back to your room . I strongly advise you ask for the main hotel building if you want to use the leisure facilities.
