“Amazing hotel”
Reviewed 7 October 2009

We stayed at this hotel for one night for my birthday and had a wonderful time.We were given the Duke of York Suite which is fantastic, the views were lovely from the room.Hugh room and sitting room and lovely bathroom.In the old house so all period features.The gym is small but adequate, with new equipment and we were the only ones there so size wasn't a problem.The spa is nice, again small but no other people were in it so it was perfect for us.
The grounds are lovely and the interior was kept immaculate.The staff were really helpful and polite.Didn't eat at the hotel but drinks were very expensive.
Will definately be returning to this hotel and recommend it to everyone

Lovely hotel, staff are excellent. Real human touch and attention to detail. Great location for York. Beautiful rooms. Tip: if you want away from traffic noise ask for room at the back or a cottage room.

Middlethorpe Hall, just outside of York, England is a magnificent find. It is exactly what one would expect of a 18th century manor house-turned-hotel. Stunningly beautiful, appointed with furniture appropriate to such a distinguished building, the grounds were immaculately kept, and above all, the staff was 5-star.
We stayed in a carriage house converted to rooms. It was beautiful and roomy and quite comfortable. The bathroom was small compared to many we've seen in a hotel, but it was not cramped.
The hotel garden and park was fantastic. And it is a working garden as well. Fruit and vegetables grown there are used in the restaurant. Walking behind the hotel is beautiful and relaxing.
The only small negative is that the hotel is located near a motorway and so there is quite a bit of road noise outside on the grounds.
But the the best experience of our short stay however was the raspberry souffle. It was heavenly!
If you like to lounge around in a beautiful setting, being waited on by attentive staff, in affordable luxury, then a visit to Middlethorpe Hall is a must!

We arrived at Middlethorpe Hotel for our one night stay to find that we had been given a complimentary upgrade to a de-luxe suite in the Courtyard. Room 26 was beautiful with its large sitting room, bedrom and two bathrooms. The food was excellent and the service faultless. The only comment is that it would have been nice to have had tea/coffee making facilities in the room but having said that our morning tea was delivered right on time and with fresh milk !
Will certainly revisit MIddlethorpe Hall when we next take a trip to York

We wanted to visit York and after a quick search on Tripadvisor decided that Middlethorpe Hall was worth a try. Got a really good rate via Tripadvisor for the standard room but found on arrival that we had been upgraded to a cottage suite. We thought this was fantastic but our neighbours had enjoyed the races too much and the noise was unbearable, No problem, a quick trip to reception and another free upgrade later we were in a garden courtyard suite. The rooms are very nice and clean and the suites have plenty of room. York is a plesent 30mins walk along the river so the hotel is ideally situated. The spa is relaxing and had everything that you would need, Jacuzzi, Steam Room, Sauna and pool and is set in a pair of converted semi cottages. We did not eat in the restraunt in the evenings so cannot comment on the food, however be warned if you do want to eat in the evenings the dress code is very much smart. Breakfast is good (although you need to note that only continental is included, there is a charge for full english) and the main waitress is very helpfull and amiable. All in all a very good couple of nights stay.

Dear Mr Chatard,

Many thanks for the upgrade and for making our stay at Middlethorpe Hall for our first wedding anniversary so enjoyable. Once again your staff gave us a first class service and are a credit to you and the hotel.

We are looking forward to our next visit to Middlethorpe Hall Hotel,

Yours sincerely

Kevin and Liz O'Sullivan

This is a copy of the email that I sent to Middlethorpe Hall Hotel after our 1st wedding anniversary return to the hotel.
If it is relaxed class that you are looking for then this is the place.
We stayed in the garden cottage because our dog was allowed to stay with us and then went to the main house for our meals. Hope we can afford to return next year.
