“Beautiful find, would definately recommend & come back”
Reviewed 28 August 2014

We came here for one night last week after giving up trying to find somewhere to stay in Whitby, we took a detour to get home to Nottingham then stumbled upon The Lodge, it's a beautiful looking building & as we had a dog with us we thought ' No Chance ' but my hubby was greated to a warm welcome, a room was available & it was dog friendly, the hotel is a beautiful traditional design just what we like & our room very pretty & spacious with 2 double beds & a wardrobe, dressing table & complementary drinks tray that had lovely biscuits, we had a couple of night caps in the bar & was served nice cold Rose & my husband had a coffee which was really nice quality coffe with homemade biscuits, the night staff member who dealt with us from checking in to serving in the bar was really nice & gave us some history of the building which we enjoyed. The beds were comfy & we had a great sleep. The breakfast staff were warm & friendly & there was a great selection of hot & cold food, the sausages were great quality. Checkout was quick & hassle free. We were so lucky to find this place, we would definatley come back & have recommended you to other people. Loved all the lovely traditional touches this place has. We love individual places with character & this ticked all the boxes.

Room Tip: I think all the rooms will be nice here as it's in a lovely location

We would like to thank these guests for their lovely review- we are really chuffed (for anyone who doesn't know, that's Yorkshire for pleased) that they enjoyed our rose wine, coffee and home made biscuits and the breakfast, especially the sausages! These items are all things that we went to great lengths to choose, with taste tests including all the staff and much agonising before finally deciding which to finally select, so it's great to hear that our choices have been enjoyed!
Dogs are very welcome at The Lodge, and I agree that it's lovely to take your pooch on holiday- I take mine to The Lodge regularly- and we hope to welcome you all again soon!

It was our grand daughters birthday on the 22nd August, she was 6 and her family were on holiday in the area of the Old lodge hotel so my wife, myself and our son and daughter in law stayed at this hotel for one night. A lovely hotel very oldy worldly, set in lovely gardens, which must be heaven for any weddings. Our room the honeymoon suite was the most expensive room but with what was in the room was not expensive. The drinks in the bar were average hotel prices,
There was a nice menu for dinner but we did not stop as we had arranged to meet my daughter and grand children for a Italian meal in the town. The breakfast was excellent freshly cooked. the hotel is situated a short walk from the town and is close to a lot of tourist places in the part of Yorkshire.
Would we stay again YES

Comfortable stay and friendly staff unfortunately the room wasn't what we expected being a honeymoon suite and for £145 a night we were disappointed although we mentioned the problems on checkout we were told the room was being refurbished in October which is no good if your paying that amount of money the room should be 100% all the time here is a list of things and images damaged ceilings from leaks, cracked sink with rust and dirt, cracked walls, leaking radiator, stained bedside cabinet, strained carpets, dust everywhere the list goes on hopefully the management will sort the problem's out for future guests

We would like to thank these customers for their review, and we are glad that they found us to be friendly.
Regarding the comments about the room, we set our prices with care, and we do very much feel that this room is worth the price tag of £145. It is a super room- really big and well decorated, with a huge bathroom, lovely furniture and a super king size four poster bed, with lovely bay windows overlooking the grounds.
I personally see this room very regularly when I show brides-to-be the room, as it's our honeymoon suite, and it always gets a 'Wow!' and it is most certainly not ever dirty or dusty. We urge customers to read previous reviews and see our and other guests' photos prior to making a decision.
We are aware that our ceiling has been damaged in the past, however it has been repaired- the Old Lodge is over 400 years old, so not doing too badly we think! The sink is not cracked, and although the chrome has come off the plug hole, it is not rusty and certainly not dirty. There are no cracked walls, and as for the radiator, we note that these guests moved the white pipe cover that is normally over the pipe in order to photo the rusty part, and it was in fact quite difficult to replace! The radiator does not leak, the carpets are not stained, and there is not dust everywhere, or in fact, anywhere!
We apologise that these customers were not offered a refund when they made their comments to our manager on checkout. Although we do gladly give refunds if we think one is deserved, for the above reasons we do not feel that one was warranted on this occasion.

We have recently had our full wedding, ceremony and reception, at the old lodge and what a fantastic choice we made. We had a few meals there already and visited a few times so were pretty confident things would go well but the staff over exceeded our expectations on the day and we couldnt have been happier, nothing was too much trouble.
The food was fantastic and the quality didnt go a miss even though it was for alot of people. The room was beautiful and had fantastic view of the garden. The reception room looked AMAZING and was even set up already the night before. To top it all off the staff we brilliant and made us feel like royalty for the day! Thank you to Tracey and Eileen for organising the best day of our lives so perfectly, we couldnt have asked for anything more!

We stayed here for two nights for our niece's wedding which was held at the hotel itself.
It's an old building and our room was spacious and comfortable. The breakfast was delicious and the food at the wedding was also delicious.
The staff were friendly and helpful (if a little busy!) and the happy couple were more than happy with the support they had had from the hotel in planning what was a lovely day (they got married outside in the gazebo in the hotel garden which is a lovely setting).
If you want a base to explore the area (or get married) then you could do a lot worse than the Old Lodge. We'd recommend it.

Thank you for your lovely review- we are pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us and that your niece was happy with the support that she received prior to her big day.
The garden is a lovely setting for a marquee wedding, and I do believe that your niece was lucky with her weather, which further adds to the enjoyment of the day!
We hope to see you again soon at The Old Lodge

I stayed here for one night whilst walking The Yorkshire Wolds Way with a friend.

Our room was large with two double beds and a view of the grounds. It was beautifully decorated and full of character.

We dined in the hotel in the evening and the meal was tasty. The dining room lacked character and atmosphere though and the tables and chairs were not in keeping with the historic building at all!

Breakfast was awesome with fresh fruit, seeds, nuts, yoghurts, cheeses, meats, breads and pastries and you could have a cooked option. 10/10 to this hotel for providing veggie sausages AND bacon. It really is quite unusual but most welcome.

Friendly, professional staff and a lovely place to stay.

Thank you for your positive review about your stay at The Old Lodge whilst walking the Yorkshire Wolds Way.
We're delighted to hear that you found your food tasty and your room to be beautifully decorated and full of character.
We are disappointed that you did not think that the tables and chairs in the restaurant were in keeping with the building- the dining room has been recently redecorated and refurbished to include a wood floor and dark wood and leather chairs, with new dark solid wood tables and chandeliers, and we have had much positive feedback. We realise of course that likes and dislikes about such things are very personal and so we must of course respectfully accept that you did not find them to your taste.
We are really pleased to receive your feedback about our breakfast- it's nice to hear that you appreciated our vegetarian bacon and sausage, and we hope that it set you up to continue your walking holiday with a full energy boost!
