4th stay and worst. Bar service shockingly slow. Waiter was hopeless kept vanishing. Bar tender had to take orders. No food service at bar though room service still ok. Only reason to force you into main restaurant. Toast at breakfast like cardboard and cold. No breads, cheeses or cooked meats. Only orange or apple juice both concentrate. Better offerings in Whitby and Sandsend. Rooms are excellent as are grounds and location and breakfast staff. This was 3 star. Disappointed, new staff need bringing up to speed. Not asked how stay was at checkout.

Fantastic hotel, location and restaurant
What an absolute wonderful place to stay. Could not fault the hotel or staff. All excellent. We found out the hotel was closing for NYE. We felt so sorry for the staff and owners but despite the bad news we were still given a first class service and the food was excellent.
