Just returned from a enjoyable Christmas break at Hackness Grange. The hotel is a imposing old building built in the early 1800s and is in Hackness village, which is approx 6 miles from Scarborough
As previous reviews have stated it is under new management and they have plans to refurbish the Grange. The swimming pool is closed and I understand it is going to be removed completely and that area turned into a function room.
The room we had was the Dale Suite which is right at the top of the hotel. Two nice bedrooms, large bed, possibly king size, in one room and two singles in the other. The sitting room was quite small with a small TV. Decoratively faded but the room was clean and comfortable with nice views from the bedrooms. Owing to the narrow stairs I wouldn't recommended that particular room for anybody with walking difficulties.
Although we had been told that WIFI was only available in the public rooms we were pleasantly surprised to find a decent signal in the room.
The bar area had a nice log fire and if you had a chance to sit around it then it was lovely and cosy, but the other members of my party did mention that they were cold when sitting further away and in the dining room.
The staff could not have been better, they were friendly and accommodating and given they were working on a Christmas, very cheerful.
The food was very good, well presented and ample.
If you are looking for a quiet break with lovely countryside and within a reasonable distance of Scarborough then I would recommend this hotel as a base.
