Hartforth Hall Hotel
Ranked #5 of 8 Hotels in Richmond
Reviewed 6 March 2010

We have just read the other reviews and cannot think we stayed at the same place. The Hall, Grand interior and impressive accommadation was exactly what we were expecting from the extensive pre infomation sent to confirm the booking and entirely relevant to the age and era of the Hall. Being in the low season, a main reason for our visit, we were lucky that the weather was gloriously sunny which ment that it was very cold but as fitting of that time of year welcoming fires in the bar and and extra radiator supplied (without prompting) in our room was most appreciated. The owners Anne and David were always amenable and available, even serving us personally one evening to allow staff days off and we were helped with our luggage by Aneta when leaving who had looked after us excellently over the week. I can only think the other less than happy guests were expecting sanitised and bland accommadation and recommend that they may be more suited to a Travelodge.

Seemed lovely on the website but what a pit when we arrived! Faded room with a four poster bed covered in dust and so lumpy we could hardly sleep. Interesting plumbing and notices everywhere about what we were and were not allowed to do. Asking guests for payment in advance is not something you do if you think they will still pay at the end imho! Luckily we only ate in on the first night - told off for arriving late - we got there at 6.30! and then given barely edible food which appeared to have been cooked in a microwave. On the plus side, location is great and there are some amazing places to eat nearby. Richmond is worth a visit. This hotel is not.

Had a great weekend in gorgeous surroundings at Hartforth Hall. food was good, service was above expected from some reviews,and the owners, Ann and David gave a real family welcome. Ann may seem a bit school teacher type but maybe some people might need this to appreciate quality. the hotel was warm, very warm for the weather we had in January.The place must be a haven for people in the summer being in such a lovely place just outside a quaint little village. the gardens and approaching driveway will be spectacular in bloom.
Thank you all(A and D and staff) for a quality stay. WILL BE BACK SOON, THANKS

My wife and i have just enjoyed a christmas and new year break second to none in beautiful historic surroundings. We enjoyed first class accomodation,good food and excelent company. Pleasent staff attended to our every need provided by hosts by Anne and David, nothing was too much trouble for our care and comfort. Murder Mystery Nights and quiz games brought all fellow guests together, it was a laugh a minute.
We saw in the new year with a lovely dinner party and lively disco.
Our next holiday here in the spring cannot come quick enough. Many thanks to Anne and David at beautiful Hartforth Hall in Yorkshires pleasent dales.
Happy Bird Feeder

We have also just returned from our 3rd stay at the hall and as with the previous poster I to think the the poster from early December should take a look at himself.
Yet again we had the most fantastic christmas away from all the hustle and busler.
We as always were looked after as if we were part of the family. Can I add my special thanks to Ann , David & there staff and also to anyone else who were there, for making our christmas special , and to who ever organised the snow , magical

On entering the building, the inside was colder than the outside!! We were met by presumably the owner, a woman whose last job must have been a head mistress in a girls bording school in the late fifties!! Full payment was demanded on arrival, which we thought odd!! Our room was freezing although the radiator was on full. The heating went off at 10pm until 7am the following morning!!
When we asked for a heater we were told they did not have one. 10 minutes later one came, but didn't work!! The shower didn't work, and the palce was full of flies!! ...hence the fly spray in the bedroom!! On complaining and asking for some refund, the owner was most put out, and we were asked to find another hotel if we didn't like it or no refund!! The only good thing was we didn't eat there!! .....White Swan Gilling West ...very good!!

Found this beatutiful hotel by accident whilst searching for the perfect hideaway to spend
time with a very special person, and so glad we did, Anne the owner " 52 percent" she told me !was unobtrusive and a delight to talk to, ok the hotel was dated but it became a very special place over the weekend , with fantastic countryside walks along the riverside
and within easy walking distance to Gilling West , a gorgeous little village, and a two and
a half mile drive into Richmond which again was full of fantastic eaterys and some great
shops and sights to enjoy.
Most definately be back soon as we know exactly what we want in the way of privacy and time to spend together,,,,, didnt just fall in love with the hotel either !
