How to Get There
We have stayed at Rowley manor many times and it is always a pleasure. The staff are always welcoming and it feels like you are part of the family. Amanda always makes everyone feel special. This visit was a surprise christmas box. We have not visited for a while so the room we were in (room 6) had been refurbished and was so light, bright and tastefully done. As always the meals were wonderful, the drinks in the bar with a roaring fire makes you so relaxed and comfortable. Both breakfasts were very good. We visited Hull which is only 20 minutes away, Hull is very well worth visiting. We will return again when the weather is better.
We recently stayed at Rowley Manor from Monday to Friday, bed, breakfast, and evening meal. We had the Bridal suite which was a wonderful room with lovely views. The bed was extremely comfortable. The room spacious with a nice seating area. The water pressure could have done with been a little better in the bathroom but it's an old property, can't have authenticity and all the mod cons :) The staff were exceptionally friendly, prompt service, always willing to chat. In fact, this hotel is the first where all the guests chatted as well. The food was beyond my expectation. Very well prepared, tasty, and perfect portion sizes. Overall, a great little find and we'll certainly return.
We were celebrating my Mum's 90th birthday with a gift from my son in Sydney. With my wife and my sister. Excellent venue. Superb food. Friendly and professional staff. The scones were particularly memorable. Thank you.
We stayed overnight on a Saturday; we found the attitude of the staff was exceptional from the moment of arrival until our departure. Every one of the staff we met were friendly and welcoming, a definite highlight! As an established manor country house it comes with all the wonderful expectations of creaky floorboards and unique interior design. Our 4-poster room (room 9) was spacious and very clean, with delightful countryside views. We ate dinner here and had breakfast the following morning, both were excellent. The short drive to Beverley was worthwhile. We enjoyed a fantastic weekend break, and would definitely recommend this as a couples quiet retreat.
Just returned from this lovely hotel which is in a peaceful rural setting. We were greeted warmly by all the staff members. Its was clear that attention had been paid to every detail. From reception to bar then onto the dining room everywhere was comfortable and clean. Our 3 course sunday lunch was excellent and the yorkshire pudding was possibly the best ever ie light tasty just right. This is somewhere to go to enjoy a very special occasion, although I guess anyone visiting at anytime would not be disappointed. A credit to the place and all who work there.
