Set in a stunning baronial mansion between the North Yorkshire Moors and the North East coast, Grinkle Park is an elegant boutique hotel surrounded by 35 acres of stately grounds and woodlands. It has all the class of an elegant Victorian country house, with its high-embossed ceilings and fine wooden panelling – made all the more cosy on chilly days by a roaring fire. Modern luxury has also made its home within the imposing stone walls, with newly refurbished bedrooms boasting beautiful modern furnishings and all your creature comforts.
Make like a lord or lady with dinner in the elegant fine dining restaurant, where you’ll find seasonal menus of locally sourced delights such as Whitby’s famous fresh fish. You can work up an appetite with a leisurely lakeside stroll or a run round the jogging trail. The lovely grounds have plenty of peace and quiet for travellers in search of a quiet break, while the haunting beauty of the North Yorkshire Moors beckons nearby. The charming country retreat picked up a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence.
How to Get There
We have stopped at Grinkle Park four times before so they must be doing something right. The hotel as ever was a very relaxing place to stay with it’s old world charm and splendid location. The staff as ever are friendly and attentive without being overbearing.
This hotel is dire. Staff shouting 'tea or coffee' across dining room, waiter grumbling we both had same drink so how could he know which was which when carrying to table, no one on reception I found someone and she complained it wasn't her ojb. Cold food that was inedible. Sent back but meant none of us were eating at same time. Room grubby and no one nehind bar during evening. Perpetual hunt for staff, service and anything to eat. Ran out of fruit and croissants an hour before end of breakfas. Asked when hall log fire would be lit and was asked 'what fire', 'don't know'. Manager not about when we left and they had no idea when he'd be back or where he was. Sent 2 letters of complaint and none acknowledged never mind answered. Do not waste your money.
Great food, (we had breakfast and dinner) lovely staff, very clean, well equipped room with fantastic view and ample supply of tea, coffee etc - hospitality second to none. We had an absolutely wonderful time at Grinkle Park. Just can't wait to go back
