Gisborough Hall

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

This hotel is beautiful, it is quite expensive for one nights stay at £145.00 but it is definitely the best sleep in the most comfortable bed. We stayed in the Woodland wing, which is quiet. It is a bit of a hike from the reception desk though! Great room, plenty of wardrobe space and a large bathroom with twin sinks, bath and separate shower cubicle and lovely toiletries. However for this price I would have expected bath robes and slippers! The rooms to lounge in downstairs are nice with paintings and an open fire, there are quite a few stuffed animal heads in the hall and stairs area! Wasn’t too keen on that :/ Service was good and friendly, the only downfall was the extra charge for breakfast per person, which was around £15 each. Yes, there was plenty to choose from, a buffet selection of meats, cheese, breads, juices, cereals and the usual and also the cooked Yorkshire breakfast that we ate, which to be honest was nothing special, and I was expecting it to be quite exceptional to match the grandeur of Gisborough Hall.

On our recent tour around the UK we were interested in staying in more unusual and original accommodation than the usual chains that you can find anywhere. Gisborough Hall is a Grade II listed 19th century mansion house that will either fill you with delight or dread, depending on your perspective. From the first sight of this pile, with its rolling gardens,quirky layout and polished wood panelling, we loved the place. Yes, the Woodland Wing (where most of the accommodation is located) is a trek from the front entrance, but for us it just added to the charm to experience the history and the grandeur of how the other half once lived. Our room in the addition was beautifully furnished with a lovely view, and a very smart double sinked bathroom. Everything worked perfectly and the staff were very helpful. We enjoyed meeting Hannah at reception who was particularly pleasant. In contrast to other reviews, we had a uniformly positive interaction with everyone in the hotel. Perhaps it was because the hotel wasn't too busy during our short stay, but our dining experience at breakfast was excellent with lightning quick service - a full cooked selection available, huge choice of continental options. When we are next visiting this part of the world, we'll definitely keep Gisborough Hal as an option.

Hard to choose between 4 or 5 out of 5 here but I’m going with 5 due to staff. I stayed here about 10 years ago and came back last week for business. I love the grand fire place and feature rooms and the restaurant was good but not exceptional. Sadly on the second day of my business stay I had to leave due to a family bereavement and the hotel were very accommodating. It is definitely the best place to stay in the wider area.

My wife and I stayed two nights on 3/11 to 4/11 with four friends. I want to commend the hotel, it’s rooms and service which was first class. Nothing was too much trouble, the reception and drawing rooms were. Great place to relax before and after dinner. The building is beautiful and even in November the grounds are surroundings are magnificent. Thanks for a great weekend.

I've stayed here 3 times before . great hotel, great fresh breakfast. However yet again the poor check in and service. the attitude is that the cant be bothered, no smile, no welcome, just auto pilot questions, !do you need help with the bags! also I asked for a taxi, yes they could call one, "however I would have to go outside and check otherwise they would leave." wait a minute, I was in the bar 2 metres away ,could the receptionist watch out for it. I'm spending money in the bar! also if the hotel is recommending a taxi company, make sure they come in. where has the service gone? especially for a classy hotel. Its not hard.

Nice afternoon tea- lovely grounds - and close enough to Roseberry Topping to go for a walk beforehand or after. Visited with a friend - plenty of top ups of tea and lovely selection of sandwiches and cakes for £20 each. Would go back again.

Once a year we meet with friends we don't otherwise see. This was the perfect place! It was welcoming, comfortable almost home from home. There was absolutely nothing to fault . A wonderful venue for special occasions. Thank you.

We had a fantastic two night stay in this excellent hotel. Very friendly & welcoming staff. Room comfortable & food delicious. Hotel set in lovely surroundings. Could not fault this hotel, would highly recommended.

We stayed for one night en route to visit elderly parents on Tyneside. We had dinner, bed and breakfast as part of a one night package. The staff at reception were very friendly and helpful, the room was spacious and comfortable, although a long walk from reception! King size bed and everything you would expect in a hotel of this standard. Dinner was excellent, both food and service. Plenty of choice on the buffet for breakfast and good quality cooked options. The hotel is well situated for the North York Moors National Park and the coast at Whitby. It is also within pleasant walking distance of Guisborough town centre. We will definitely stay again on a future trip to the North East.

There is a whole new atmosphere at Gisborough Hall since it reverted to independent management, after dropping out of the national chain that had managed it for a couple of decades. The staff - at least those we met - are all British, generally a little more mature and have a natural confidence as they go about their duties. It was a pleasure to see them engaging with guests without crossing the line and becoming over-familiar. We visited for an evening meal in the G-Bar Bistro. We were quickly seated, our order taken promptly. My wife's Chicken Coq au Vin was delicious - the meat melted off the bones! My Gammon & Pineapple was equally tasty, the gammon was tender and full of flavour, the pineapple chutney was a treat. When we took our coffee in the lounge, we noticed that all the cups were placed with the handles at 'three o'clock' on the assumption that guests are generally right-handed - a nice touch! A main course and dessert with wine and coffees cost us £27 per head - very reasonable given the quality of the location and the standard of the service. We look forward to returning.
