Set in 15 acres of manicured lawns, Crathorne Hall Hotel is an imposing Edwardian-style estate that blends historic grandeur with modern-day luxury. With elegant honey-hued stone and a labyrinth of high-ceilinged rooms, it’s the perfect setting for a romantic country escape.
Located just a stone’s throw from the purple haze of the North York Moors National Park, the hotel enjoys some of the most picturesque surroundings in the country. Its own immaculate grounds are an Eden of heather and delicate water features, while inside, the public rooms are softly lit with grand chandeliers. This is a place to relax and indulge, not least in the manor’s fine dining room. Leven Restaurant serves an accomplished menu of modern British fare, putting a creative spin on hearty, classic dishes.
How to Get There
This was a panic buy as hotel I had booked for partners birthday had doubled booked.Room was on the small size but omg view from windows made up for that, hotel and grounds fantastic food was amazing compliments to chief,and the staff first class, so glad was let down by the other hotel.. Such a lovely relaxing time can't wait to go back.
I booked a "two for one" champagne tea for my wife's birthday at the Crathorne. I specified one veggie and requested a window seat in the dining room on my booking, made 3 days in advance.After confirmation and a reminder from Hand Picked hotels, owner of venue, I assumed all was set.
How wrong I was! We arrived to be shown into the bar, already crowded with other tea parties and were invited to sit at a table next to the bar counter !!!! I asked if they had received my mail and why the restaurant/ dining room was not in use ...We were told it was "unavailable" due to repairs and there was no reply on my mail/booking ..
I told the waitress we would not be staying unless a more appropriate seating arrangement could be found. I looked in the restaurant, which was empty but set for dining.After a deal of discussion, we were moved to a window table in the room where we were the only guests for 90 mins until we departed.
The tea was disappointing, too few finger sandwiches, which were rather stale and unimaginative anyway, scones were burned on the outside and bitter to taste.Cakes ok but did little to address the issues.
To top off a very disappointing experience we were presented with A BILL for two teas !!!!! This was corrected after my protest but it really encapsulated the whole afternoon...a disappointing debacle.
We married here in April with just the two of us and we could not have had a better experience. The hotel and grounds are stunning and the staff were amazing from start to finish.
Room was stunning, food incredible and just a fantastic experience.
We returned for Sunday lunch and, again, fantastic.
Cannot wait to go back.
