“Amazing Festive Hospitality”
Reviewed 30 December 2013

I have been here again ! This time for a week over Christmas .

I could not fault the place . The food was amazing , the house was spectacularly but tastefully decorated and the staff were not only really friendly but also couldn't do enough to make sure your stay was perfect . Even the weather was better than the rest of the country were having ! Thank you Sue (manager ) and Mark (assistant ) . You made Christmas really special .

Stayed at the Larpool and it was a nice walk down into Whitby. The room was a tad musty and the whole place is a bit old and jaded. Still, a good base for Whitby and they cater very well for the walking crowd. A tremendous breakfast was slightly marred by a bun-fight for packed lunches by an elderly crowd who should have known better (not the hotel's fault, just proves that poor manners aren't necessarily limited to younger generations). Would I stay again? Do you know, I just might.

We just stayed one night on our way to Alnmouth . As usual it was wonderful . Mark was in charge ( Sue the manager was on holiday ) and he was great giving us a warm welcome and helping us with everything we needed. The meals were great and the views are fabulous. It is so peaceful there , near Whitby yet away from the noise of Whitby .

Ok so when my parents invited me away with them a couple of years ago, I thought oh great I'm gonna get very very bored on this holiday, but I have to say I was so so wrong. We went with the camera club and I have to say that the hotel staff were amazing and very very helpful on arriving at the hotel, the group needed to get together and discuss the weeks events that were planned and the staff landed out a full afternoon tea and coffee with cakes.
The rooms were big and lovely with some period features and all the food was fantastic a wide variety each day, and the packed lunches were included each day and they would ask u the evening before what u wanted in ur lunch each day.
All in all one of the best hotels and holidays I've ever had 5 stars

The hotel was clean and comfortable, walking groups are obviously well known here as the packed lunches and drying facilities etc were excellent. Good location and helpful staff - just a bit regimented as regards mealtimes and serving - otherwisevery good.

We had the pleasure of having the first independently-booked stay in the Lodge in the grounds of the Hall. A wooden chalet, with all the conveniences of home, including oven, hob, microwave, dishwasher and washing machine, it came with one double bedroom ( with en suite) and two twin rooms ( plus a separate bathroom). There is a table with seating for four on the verandah.Free wifi was a bonus and the milk and bread a nice welcome present. We didn't eat in the Hall, although we did use the putting, swingball and croquet on two lovely sunny evenings. Set in beautiful countryside, a twenty minute walk into town, either by road, or the cinder path, Whitby is close by. Staff were unfailingly helpful with any queries.A very enjoyable stay at reasonable cost.

Larpool Hall is owned by HF Holidays, a walking holiday company. I came as one of a group of 20 people and stayed for a week. I have stayed at a number of their country houses and this is one of the best I have experienced. Hotel nicely located with lovely views from the front. Quite a distance from the town centre (or anywhere) but this doesn't worry walkers! Good facilities, nice and warm which was just as well as we had very cold and windy weather. Good room - rather small but everything worked and the bed, although a single one, was very comfortable. Food was excellent with always a good choice at breakfast and dinner. Note that HF holidays nearly always have 8-seater round tables in the restaurant. This is great if you want to mix in (most do) but wouldn't be so great for a romantic dinner for two. Decor very good, everything clean and as it should be. Staff all very friendly. A nice cosy bar.

Room Tip: Rooms at the front have the best view.
