Charming hotel with excellent service

Lovely room with good amenities. The manager called in some favours to find us a taxi at short notice. Staff were relaxed but attentive and dinner in the restaurant was excellent. Very relaxing stay, perfect for visiting the nearby vineyard

    We have just returned home after spending the weekend at Burythorpe House for our daughter’s wedding. All I can say is - everything was perfect and better than we could have imagined. We filled all the rooms for both nights so it felt like an extended family gathering. All staff were amazing. However, Alison the manager, who has been so supportive of us all over the period of planning this big event to checking everything was in place for every part of the event, we cannot thank you enough. Matt, the chef, produced food all weekend that everyone who came said was the best wedding food they had ever tasted. For such a special occasion, the marriage of your daughter, we could could not have asked for more. They made this memory even more special.

    We were based in Bridlington recently and decided to go back after a number of years and check out one of our favourite hotels, Burythorpe House, which is about a forty-five minute drive away.

    On arrival the car park was almost empty and when we went to reception the door was locked. Attracting attention took a minute or so and when we went in we found that lunch was pre-bookings only...and today there were none!

    February in a very wet Yorkshire is not the best time to visit but once inside we were royally treated by Chef Matt and front of house Jennifer.

    The downstairs of the main house has lost its billiard/snooker room to additional public seating; the swimming pool is now a function room and the bedrooms have all been given makeovers. The lounge and dining rooms have remained largely as we remember them but without the Austin family cats!

    Despite there being no lunch service that day, Matt very kindly produced some excellent sandwiches for us followed by a couple of delicious puddings - a frangipane tart and stunning lemon posset. With a couple of drinks along the way what had begun inauspiciously ended with us feeling that familiar Burythorpe ambiance and relaxed comfort that we knew so well.

    There's an old saying about never going back as you're often disappointed. Well Burythorpe House is clearly an exception and well worth a visit.

    Room tip: Not really, as ours was such a singular albeit excellent experience.

    Visited Burythorpe House on a weekend break. A wonderful welcoming Country House set in North Yorkshire. The accommodation was spotlessly clean. and the hotel has a warm and comfortable feel in all areas. The staff were excellent with a special mention for Jill who looked after us so well on arrival and throughout Dinner. The Manager Alison is passionate on good customer service and this shines through in every department
    The standard of cuisine both for Dinner and breakfast could not be faulted with a good selection of options available.Good range of drinks at sensible prices however no draught ales available but a good section of bottled beers etc
    All in all a very pleasant experience and we will certainly return

    Room tip: Beautiful country setting in North Yorkshire on the edge of Burythorpe Village Excellent Parking

    What a wonderful country house. Setting, service and ambience. Set for great walks and warm fires. The food in the restaurant was lovely and overall a great experience. The only elements that prevented me giving this a 5. The mattress. Change it now. It was like a water bed and spoilt the beautiful sleigh bed. The roll top bath and shower is an accident waiting to happen…. It wobbles and no handle to help getting in or out of the shower element.

    Thank you for taking the time to leave a review following your stay over the New Year period. We are delighted to let you know that both issues raised have been addressed and the bed now has a new ( and very firm ) mattress and the bath is once again completely stable. We very much enjoyed meeting you both and hope that we have the opportunity to welcome you back to Burythorpe in the not too distant future.

    Many Thanks and Kindest Regards

    Alison

    Stayed in the Newbury room ( I think it’s called ). The one with the large bath in the room. Service from start to finish excellent. From the lady ringing us to ask if we needed a cot, to leaving after breakfast, the stay was superb. The room was spotless, and the bed was massive and a huge sleigh. The views over the very well maintained lawn were lovely, although unfortunate about the grey foggy weather. I think this room was a steal at the price we payed, as I lay in the bath watching TV! The breakfast a little pricey at £35 for 2 full English’s and tea & coffee. We also felt like we didn’t fit in very well at breakfast time as mainly upper class people, and we have a very noisy (beautiful) baby! But the staff made us and her feel very welcome, looked after, and at ease. Would happily stay again.
