"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!

"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.

"Not really a luxury experience!"
Queue at check-in and so we were checked in by a junior member of staff who was going to pass us onto the main check-in person but they took so long for the previous guest then we got our key and went to the room. Went down to the bar on the first night and draught bitter was off. Barman didn't know if he had another barrel. It took a guest to inform them the beer was off. Avoid hunters restaurant. We booked for 7 and was told when we arrived to have a seat as there had been a rush on. Only 2 tables were taken by families so where the rush had come from wasn't apparent. 30 minutes no movement and then a family strolled in and were seated immediately in front of us. We'd had enough and so left and didn't eat or drink in the hotel for the next 3 nights. Plenty of good laternatives at Sandsend and whitby east cliff area. Pie shop particularly good.

"Good . . . at a discounted price."
This is a very nice hotel which is set back from the sea front at Sandsend. We stayed in the Hall (as opposed to the Lodge) for just the one night. We used the spa facilities in the afternoon, which are as you would expect at a 4-5 star hotel, but we did not eat at the hotel at all during our stay. The room was very nicely furnished and had an extremely comfortable bed. It did get a little warm during the night, but we were able to open the roof windows. I couldn't see any obvious air conditioning, but at 3am I wasn't going to look very hard! I would summarise our brief stay by saying that for the price I paid, which was just a whisker more than £100 for the night (room only - no breakfast), it was worth the money. In fact, I would possibly have paid a little more. However, at the 'normal' price of more than £200 for the night, I'd be wanting a bit more, and certainly a breakfast!

"Fawlty Towers with an expensive price tag!"
Reception staff terrible; porters & chambermaids lovely; bar staff shambolic. Wrong breakfast delivered then arrived cold - still charged full price with no apology offered by reception. Afternoon tea we got stuck in the noisy bar as a wedding was in conservatory - full price charged with no apology. Room damp and dark despite its £256 a night price tag. Also quality of the breakfast food was poor, bread was cheap nasty cardboard...it was just a bit tacky. Hotel is in administration - no wonder!

"A hotel in many separate sections"
We had paid in full when booking to stay at The Raithwaite Hotel. On arrival we were sent to "The Keep" a smaller building in the grounds, having not previously being notified of this change. The ground floor room (we had requested a first floor room with view of grounds) was poor with bad ventilation and that its wardrobe was really for a single room with poor space for a couple. The bathroom had no where to hang our bath robes once removed from the bedroom wardrobe, although staff tried to rectify this and a proper chrome hook was fitted the following day. The staff did their best, but also having dined in the main hotel once, being ferried back and forth on a golf trolly in the wet is not fun. We recieved no compensation for the changes to the expected accomodation and room, still being charged the full hotel rate. The hotel need to be honest and notify customers of unexpected changes made after payment has been made - on arrival is not acceptable.

"DO NOT DISTURB"
Sorry to say how disappointed I was. It was difficult to park near to the hotel and all drop off spaces were taken so we parked up the hill and carried our cases down only to be told that we were in the wrong building and we were now in the Keep so back we trundled and moved the car.I was told they did not inform me due to not having my email address although i had spoken to them two days earlier.Checked in only to find the bed configuration was a twin instead of the double that I had booked so a trip back to reception. Bed was made right after some inconvenient attempts by staff to enter the room especially with DO NOT DISTURB on the door. The Keep was very nice but the room was of strange layout which made getting to the bed and wardrobe difficult. The portable air con unit was an eyesore and reminded me of a tumble dryer and was far too loud to use. Sorry again for all the moans but I did tell reception and they sent some bubbly but just smiled a lot and apologised. I could go on but I think you have heard enough. Ah just one last thing it is dog friendly..ok if you have a dog but I do not like the idea that dogs may have been in the bed. Such a shame as the setting is perfect.

"A nice hotel with great staff, but overpriced"
The staff in the hotel are very good, I read reviews about the keep and the Hall, not much difference, their was a wedding on Friday and Saturday in hall. We stayed in the keep as we had a dog, ( no dog bins). We paid £15 per day extra for having a dog, sub standard rooms and nothing else. The hotel in my opinion price themselves out of everything, the cheapest 175ml wine £7. The prices in local bars, very reasonable. The cage in Sandbanks and local bar was excellent. We liked he hotel for everything, but price which was a huge issue, pure greed in my opinion. I loved the area but would not waste my money returning, not the staff the greedy price fixers are to blame

"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.

"Disappointing"
This was a break for my mother after a visit last year. I would advise not to bother getting a executive room. You are paying for a balcony and the room is far smaller than a cheaper club room. Wanted a bar meal at night was given a menu but was told I couldn't eat in the bar, had to walk down to the keep with an elderly mother. There is a chef available and the ingredients I should eat want I want where I want after all it is a luxury hotel?? Complained had to walk down only for the porter to be offering lifts in his buggy to other people. How nice of him after I tipped him a fiver taking our luggage up to the room and he was stood in reception whilst I was complaining. Service is poor, what a shame. Unfortunately this is the best hotel whitby can offer.

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.
