We stayed here for the weekend, attracted by the promise of great food. We hadn't expected to find the hotel itself so sympathetically and stylishly renovated, or to be met with such excellent service. All the staff we met were knowledgable and engaging (particularly Sommelier Stefan) but there was none of the stuffiness you get at some so-called fine dining...

A fabulous establishment- patronised this place for several years and always been impressed and pampered. Yes there are issues with everywhere if one seeks to look but the overwhelming experience is wonderful. On this occasion the spa was fully booked which was disappointing but I called two weeks before to book so hardy surprising. The room was superb- traditional and...

This review is for the restaurant although we stayed overnight and this will be reviewed separately. We were greeted on arrival and offered a drink in the comfortable homely sitting room. We decided to go for the taster menu with matching wines. The menu was very well put together with wonderful local produce, oysters with horseradish sorbet were given as...

Firstly, it is not disputed by anyone that the view from this hotel is memorable - make sure you get a Lake View. ( 1 star already) This was a return visit for a special occasion based on previous good experiences. We received a warm welcome on arrival and our requested room was ready on arrival. However, our first evening's...

Holbeck Ghyll does not disappoint. The location, the atmosphere, the accommodation, the food, the service and the staff are all first class. Once discovered Holbeck Ghyll is a place to which one returns time and again.

Very disappointing, poor indifferent welcome, and that was just the start. Afternoon tea comprised of three sandwiches per person, stale bread cut very thick and cut into fingers, made much earlier and kept in fridge, fillings dreadful, poor quality ingredients. Asked if we would like tea or coffee, no choice of tea offered and one of the tea pots had...

Breakfast good apart from tables too small to fit everything on,had to ask each morning for more milk as only a small jug on the table. Booked the outdoor...

We stayed in the Potter Suit for one night in February. Upon arrival, we were taken to the suit which totally took me back. I loved it. Big; warm and cosy. Lovely bathroom too. I had a full body massage by a lovely lady but I have forgotten her name, who was very apologetic to all the building noise going...

We booked the Junior Suite for a two night break for our honeymoon. The floor was filthy, it had definitely not been cleaned prior to our arrival. I went down to reception to inform them, the receptionist was very helpful and apologetic, to make up for this she offered for us to stay in one of the best suites which...

Visited for afternoon tea for a family birthday celebration. Location is stunning and the hotel interior was equally beautiful. Unfortunately i found the service poor, the staff looked very unhappy and were not remotely attentive. The afternoon tea was okay but not great, vegetarian sandwich offers disappointing and bread a bit stale. The service was what really let this experience...
