Good Hotel Guide Review

Steeped in history, this ‘wonderfully civilised’ coastal Georgian mansion combines ‘style, luxury and high standards’. Just the ticket for a ‘sybaritic getaway’, say Guide readers this year. Romantic yet boldly modern styling throughout befits the former home of Ada Lovelace (Lord Byron’s daughter and the world’s first computer programmer). Have someone run your bath – ‘staff are helpful above and beyond what one should be able to expect of this level of hotel’ – and pick your meal from the pillow menu in the ‘large, magnificent’ bedroom; one has French doors opening on to a private terrace; another a bathing platform with sea views. Each is equipped with bathrobes, an espresso machine, a card bearing the name of your porter and next day’s weather forecast. Eateries include Ozone restaurant, for light, pan-Asian-inspired meals, and the Dining Room, where chef Damian Broom’s daily-changing menu highlights locally sourced ingredients: roasted Whitby sea trout and fennel with saffron mayonnaise. Alongside its Serenity Spa, this is a great base from which to tramp along nearby beaches beneath dramatic cliffs. (David Grant, P and SG)

Guest comments

'We were made very welcome and were well cared for. The staff are the hotel's main strength, mostly young, enthusiastic; they did their best to look after us. We thought the decors bizarre. Lighting controls too complicated. House-keeping meticulous. The dinner menu did not change but there was plenty of choice. Breakfast has an innovative range of dishes. ' - Andrew Wardrop - February, 2019
'That grounds are wonderful and the staff are really helpful and friendly. above and beyond what one should be able to expect of this level of hotel - a wonderful place and a delight to visit. . ' - Stephen & Pauline Glover - July, 2017
