                Lovely hotel, brand new hotel finished to a high standard. Food was lovely and the staff were really helpful. This hotel is at the edge of Whitby in Sandends it is £6.00 in a taxi to Whitby.

                No signal at all in hotel and they charged me long distance to ring home to Newcastle-hardly long distance!!! Also people had got better deals than us on groupon so took the shine off our stay.

                This is a beautiful hotel in a beautiful setting. The staff could not be more helpful or friendly. The food in the Poachers bar (we had 2 meals) is delicious and beautifully presented. The spa is very relaxing. Everything is spotless and luxurious. I would point out that you need to be aware that there are some third floor club rooms which, whilst being beautiful rooms, do not have usual windows. These rooms have velux windows in the roof. If you are at all claustraphobic, you may wish to check if you are being given one of these rooms. Overall, we had a wonderful stay, and plan to return later in the year.

                There really isn't anything to dislike about this hotel. One of the best.

                Me and my husband stayed her as a Xmas present from my daughter. This has to be one of the best hotels we have ever stayed in. The staff was so friendly , the food was excellent and most of all it was so clean and well presented. Amazing little touches like homemade biscuits in your room and Molton brown products in your room. The gardens are also amazing , even in December!! So they must be even more in the summer. We have stayed in so many hotels all over the world but this has to be in our top 5! Can't wait to return!!!!

                Nothing

                Absolutely everything, the location is beautiful, the staff very welcoming, polite and immaculate. Our room was extremely comfortable, the bed was divine, the little touches like the underfloor adjustable heating in the bathroom and the turning down of the beds along with a bottle of water was lovely. The breakfast was out of this world , everything you could possibly want - even got the chefs marmite!!! The spa was fabulous and very clean, we both had treatments and the two ladies were professional but also very friendly, it was wonderful. Definitely a little piece of heaven, can't wait to return.

                We liked Raithwaite so much we are getting married so are taking our family to Raithwaite can't wait to share our discovery of this 1 st class hotel.

                The warmth, politeness and willingness to help demonstrated by all the staff. The comfort and quality of the room was excellent. The quality and choice of food at breakfast was outstanding.

                I worry about the safety of the car park and access to the hotel in icy conditions.

              • Older travelers
                9.2

                The attention to detail was generally very good in the rooms and around reception and the bar area etc. The staff were very freindly and efficient and very welcoming

                We had spa treatments booked which we cancelled as they were put back due to staff shortages. In the restaurant I ordered a steak cooked medium but when it arrived it was well done. I couldn't attract the attention of the serving staff but by this time my wifes meal was served also so I ate most of the steak. When the table was cleared I did mention the overdone steak to the waiting staff who said they would pass my comments to the kitchen but I had no feedback or apology from the kitchen which I thought was very bad form especially as I hadn't sent the steak back as I was well within my rights to do.
