Good Hotel Guide Review

Guests roundly praise the ‘professionalism and charm’ of the Downs family’s ‘brilliant’ country house hotel. The Victorian pile stands in ‘lovely manicured parkland’ on the edge of the North Yorkshire moors. Within, the ‘dedicated’ staff are ‘unstarchy’, ‘friendly’, ‘extremely attentive’. Downstairs, find swagged curtains, prints of famous paintings, ‘comfortable’ sofas and armchairs. Traditionally decorated bedrooms are individually styled. ‘Our spacious room had beautiful blue chintz on the walls and bedding, plus a decanter of sherry along with the usual coffee and teas – wonderful.’ Book a room with a spa bath for ‘a fabulous foam soak of Hollywood starlet proportions’. Beds are turned down in the evening; set your shoes out for an old-fashioned shine. After ‘unusual’ canapés and pre-dinner drinks, sit down to a ‘delicious’ dinner, perhaps of hand-dived scallops, sweetcorn purée, Yorkshire chorizo, pickled leeks; fillet of dry-aged beef, pressed potato, Wye Valley asparagus. At breakfast, ‘the view over the park – its trees in blossom, the squirrels on the lawns – is delightful’. ‘It was just like a home away from home, only better.’ (FW, Lesley Hutchinson, Alan Bates, Gillian Caldwell). This hotel is a member of Pride of Britain hotels.

Guest comments

'A little gem. We were made most welcome though they were very busy serving lunch. Gorgeous room; fresh fruit, chocs and sherry awaited us. Dinner too was lovely. as were the staff. ' - Mr and Mrs JC Clair - March, 2017
'A long driveway through manicured parkland leads to this fine hotel. Cheerful girls front the reception. Our sumptuous room was spacious, with a deep sofa, wide two-seater armchair facing the TV. Lots of comfortable sofas and armchairs in the lounge. The service throughout was exemplary both at dinner and breakfast. The dinner was excellent. A good cooked breakfast was served by an affable local lady who has been with the Downs family for over 20 years. ' - Francine and Ian Walsh - April, 2015
'Had a fabulous weekend here. Our room was lovely - four poster bed and jacuzzi bath. Some nice little touches including complimentary sherry, chocolates, fruit and homemade biscuits. The food was superb - we had canapés each evening followed by three delicious courses. Breakfast was equally as good. The staff were polite, helpful, friendly and extremely attentive. ' - Gillian Caldwell - January, 2015
