We stayed in a very comfortable four poster bedroom for 3 nights and appreciated the staff and manager's attitude of trying to help if small things needed to be done or corrected. The manager clearly cares about the visitor experience. The rooms are a reasonable size and furnished with lovely antiques, as are all three hotels in this group. The A64 traffic hum which other guests criticised (and which nearly put us off booking when we read some of the reviews) is barely audible and did nothing to disturb our sleep or enjoyment of the hotel. The grounds are worth exploring and the small pool and gym nice additional facilities. If you are using the hotel as a base it is next to the York race course and close to York itself - as well as being in striking distance of Castle Howard and many other NT properties and wonderful countryside.
The National Trust should do far more to fund the maintenance of the 3 hotels in the group to help ensure they can protect the furnishings and reputation for service and excellence they built up before being handed over to the NT. It must be a struggle to maintain and refresh such exceptional buildings without completely pricing them out of the reach of most of us.
The food in the restaurant was excellent - a good range of tasty dishes which were beautifully presented by courteous staff.
