Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We stayed at West Layton Manor in the Manor suite for 3 nights. From the moment you walk through the door it's 5 star treatment all the way. Our room was absolutely beautiful, extremely clean and attention to detail was second to none. We had everything in our room that we could wish for. Lots of lovely little touches with welcome drinks, biscuits and a coffee machine, not to mention the bottle of Prosecco. Breakfast was amazing, so much choice, very fresh and beautifully presented. Richard is the perfect host and nothing was too much trouble. We will definitely be staying here again without a doubt. Thank you for a wonderful stay. John & Teresa Gregory

Probably the best B&B we’ve stayed at. The Richmond Suite is amazing. In fact the whole place is superb. The host is extremely accommodating. It is close to a fantastic pub , namely The Bay Horse at Ravensworth and a short drive from the attractions of Richmond

We stayed at the West Layton Manor which came highly recommended to us and we were not disappointed. This is truely 5 star treatment at its best. The Manor is located in its own grounds with ample parking at the front. As soon as you arrive you know its going to be excellent, Mine host Richard greets you and he is extremely charming, smart and is only too happy to sort whatever you require whether it be Restaurants, Taxi’s or local amenities. The Manor itself has 6 superb rooms. All finished to the highest level and so comfy. The Manor was spotless and Breakfast is served in the downstairs restaurants and there is a varied choice and all served to the highest standard plus there was plenty of it, you will not go hungry. Richard even supplied cakes and sherry in the drawing room which was a nice touch. This is a great location for a family get together as you can book the whole place and be private. There are several restaurants or pubs nearby if required. We cannot wait to return.

Went there for husband’s 70th birthday along with family. Have stayed here previously and the high standards we enjoyed then have not diminished in the slightest. Attention to detail, cleanliness and overall unique experience was excellent. Our host Richard, made us all so welcome and the breakfast we had was absolutely first class. Would highly recommend a stay at the Manor and we will definitely be returning again.

The room we stayed in was spacious and so comfortable. We loved everything about the manor. Our room was facing the rear garden and it was so lovely to see the little rabbits hopping around and the chickens and ducks. Our stay was so relaxing. The host is so lovely and welcoming. We enjoyed our breakfast. We would highly recommend this lovely manor.

A beautiful place to stay, staff very welcoming and friendly throughout. Couldn't do enough for us. Food was excellent. The richmond suite was amazing. The travel to the manor was delayed due to car trouble and the staff were superbly understanding and offered us alternative dates waited to welcome us and booked our taxi into Richmond. A really excellent time was had by my partner and I. Cannot speak highly enough of West Layton Manor!

Lovely friendly welcome with the real fire on in the hall. Gorgeous on a cold November evening. We stayed in the Lord Rokeby room which has a four poster bed. Beautiful little touches around too. Like a fridge with proper milk not those little tubs things, and a teapot as well as a coffee machine. After our night out we were encouraged to make use of the Beautiful lounge which was set up for us with sherry and cakes. The bed was really comfy with lovely crisp sheets and we had an excellent night's sleep. The breakfast was amazing! So much on offer. Richard is really friendly and gives you his phone number so you can contact him straight away if there are any problems. (There weren't). We had a fabulous stay and will definitely be going again.

Weekend break at this beautiful Manor House. Room was excellent, bed was very comfortable, bathroom was also very nice. Loved the grand hallway with open fire and peaceful relaxing music. Suites on the second floor look amazing but were booked on our dates. Breakfast was excellent and served in a lovely dining room. Kept us going until well after lunch. Hotel owner and the staff were very friendly and welcoming, all made sure we had a memorable stay. Would 100% recommend and we will definitely be back.
