Situated within 12 acres of private land, the historical Goldsborough Hall dates back to 1620 and was the former residence of HRH Princess Mary, Queen Elizabeth II’s aunt. Located in the bucolic countryside of North Yorkshire, this imposing stately home is appointed with traditional décor and commands beautiful views of the surrounding area.
Completely renovated to accentuate its original features, Goldsborough Hall is one of the finest stately homes in the region – it’s no wonder that it was awarded a Certificate of Excellence by TripAdvisor. Also home to an AA Rosette-awarded kitchen, the culinary team at Goldsborough Hall are renowned for their exquisitely crafted cuisine. When you’re not wandering the halls of this 400-year-old country manor, you could take a drive to Harrogate, York and the bustling city of Leeds, all nearby.
How to Get There
Stayed for dinner and overnight in a beautiful garden view room to celebrate our wedding anniversary . Warm welcome on arrival , comfortable room overlooking beautifully kept
gardens and trees . Excellent meal , good service but not intrusive , wide selection of wine to accompany our meal . A most enjoyable visit and I am sure we will visit again
Wonderful hotel steeped in history. Magnificent grounds to wander about in. The byerley Turk, one of the foundation studs of British horseracing is buried in the grounds. The rooms are huge, the beds even bigger. Don't expect modern, this is luxury from a previous era. The restaurant is likewise excellent. An interesting menu, perfectly cooked and served. The breakfast in the orangerie was the same. Nothing to fault. I would go again in a heartbeat. Not cheap but you pay for what you get. Wonderful experience.
We stayed here for one night on one of the suites, absolutely stunning. The quality of the food, accommodation and service was exceptional - right from check in. The hotel grounds are beautifully kept and we found it to be really homely (some five star hotels can be a bit stuffy, but not this one!)
We would love to return in the future.
As we were due to be out for dinner in Harrogate with friends = much wine, we decided to stay over so rang a booked the hotel.
We were warmly welcomed and shown to our lovely room with fab views over the garden.
The following morning we enjoyed a delightful breakfast in the main dining room, chatted with staff who were prepping for a wedding that day and asked if I could fly my drone around the gardens. They were delighted for me to do so as the owner has one apparently.
A couple of hours later we departed after a wonderful morning in the grounds and met the Halls dogs and cats along the way.
It seems more like someone’s home than a hotel - which is a huge plus in our opinion.
We will be back - definitely !!
There is nothing really to sasy about Goldsborough Hall. Simply perfection! Food, bedroom, services, location - nothing went wrong. second visit - wished i lived nearer! Hats off to the owners and the general manager; they know how to do it.
