We got married at Crathorne Hall on 9.8.14 and to sum it up it was perfect. I (the bride) stayed at the hotel the night before the wedding and the staff were fantastic. There was another wedding on that day but I never felt ignored and the staff couldn't do enough for me. I think the staff make this hotel and they ALL deserve credit but the few who really excelled were as follows: Vicki our wedding co-ordinator was amazing, always calm, always organised and a pleasure to organise the wedding with. Earle who looked after my bridesmaids on the morning and kept things running throughout the day was brilliant. Nothing was too much bother and the fact he only wanted praise for his team to be recognised shows a true gentleman. Sophie never stopped rushing about organising things, she always had a smile and we felt she was totally in control and nothing was too much bother, a little star. Krista on reception was always smiling and always attentive, she even came to the rescue with a plaster for my little bridesmaid when her shoes gave her a blister from all the dancing! Between the wedding reception and evening reception my feet couldn't stand my shoes any longer so we went to the honeymoon suite to get my comfy shoes and my bags weren't in the room. Not to worry because Sue flew into action and delivered them with a smile, sometimes it's just the little things but she was so helpful and nothing was too much trouble. A special mention should go to Chris the Chef. I'm vegetarian and so often vegetarian food is an after thought, but the vegetarian food was amazing. To serve the vegetarian evening food separately and to provide a few options was a nice touch. He worked so hard and so many guests commented on how fantastic the food was. It was of a very high standard. Elie, well what can you say, a legend! He looked after my grandparents so well for two days that they wanted to take him home!! He made their stay and I always knew they were in safe hands. Finally, Gloria who looked after us at breakfast, what a smile and a lovely manner. She didn't bat an eyelid when we turned her work table into a table where guests could sign our poster which was lacking a few names, she knew it was important for us. The setting was amazing and the guests loved their rooms, the staff created a happy and relaxed atmosphere and we will remember them all. Thank you Crathorne for making our wedding day so perfect and the best day of our lives. The highest compliment we could pay Crathorne would be if we were to do it again we wouldn't change a single thing. We really hope this feedback is passed on to all the staff as they deserve it.
See you again soon......Mr and Mrs Stannard!

- Built in 1906, with captivating views of the Leven Valley on the edge of the Yorkshire Moors, Crathorne Hall is at once grand and stately, warm and welcoming. Owned by the Dugdale family until 1977, the hall has played host to politicians, courted royalty and delighted socialites over the decades. Yet despite moving in stately circles, the house has stayed true to its roots as a place of entertainment and relaxation. Now it is yours to explore. Enjoy an overnight stay in one of our 37 bedrooms (17 of which have recently been refurbished following a £4 million restoration of the Hall's East Wing), plan your perfect day and take over the hotel for your wedding or inspire your delegates with our meeting facilities. ... more less
