Good Hotel Guide Review

‘Wonderful. Ten out of ten,’ writes a delighted reader in 2018, of this Victorian retreat and one-time lodgings for circuit judges on the edge of the North Yorkshire moors. Today it is run by Tim Howard for the Downs family owners as an upmarket hotel, with close care for guests’ comfort. Light meals and afternoon tea are served in a lounge sporting gilt-framed paintings, antiques and comfy sofas, warmed by an open fire. ‘Everything good fun and lovely style,’ approves one reader this year. ‘Attentive staff,’ adds another. ‘The service was exceptional.’ ‘Spacious, luxurious’ bedrooms are individually styled, some with a four-poster bed, some with whirlpool bath, all with good fabrics, complimentary sherry, a teddy bear. ‘Our room had wonderful views of the beautiful gardens. There was everything you could want, even a television in the bathroom.’ Scott Papprill’s ‘superb’ cooking includes such inventive dishes as fillet of wild turbot with vanilla and pancetta butter sauce. A turn-down service, overnight shoeshine and a wake-up call with fresh coffee show attention to detail. (Rosalind and John Coulby, David Dale)

Guest comments

'We had a very warm greeting. We appreciated the laminated "walk around the grounds" sheet. The grounds are maintained impeccably and there is plenty of outdoors seating and a very nice gazebo. The public rooms are splendid. The food was good though the pleasant staff were slow on service. When we left, the cheerful general manager Tim Howard brought round our car and put our luggage within it. ' - Anthony Bradbury - August, 2019
'Every stay at this lovely hotel is delightful. The staff are professional and very friendly, the bedrooms are well equipped and the food is excellent. ' - Shirley Ingraham - June, 2019
'Our three-night night stay was sublime. The room was beautiful, with thoughtful touches like fresh fruit and sherry replaced every day. The staff were attentive, friendly and courteous; we particularly liked the way that the receptionist came to the door when we got back every evening to welcome us "home" and to ask us how our day had been. And the food was nothing short of sensational. This hotel is a gem. ' - Glynne Davies - July, 2018
'We thoroughly enjoyed the wedding and overnight stay! Wonderful! The care and quality of service were exceptional. Lunch, dinner and breakfast were delicious. Our room had lovely views of the beautiful garden. It was spacious, luxurious. ' - Anne Cooling - May, 2018
