Best Western Plus Rogerthorpe Manor Hotel

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

We stayed here on Saturday for a wedding. Upon arrival Rogerthorpe seemed to be great until it came to checking in. The facilities for a family with a baby are actually terrible to say we are living in the 21st century. Getting a travel cot, pram plus luggage up the 2 flights of stairs was a nightmare. I had to bath my child in the sink as there was only a shower in the hotel room, there was also no changing facilities in the room so I had to change my child on the bed. As for the aircon this was also appalling, we had a member of staff come up to the room as we thought we may have had it on the wrong setting but apparently not. All in all the best part of our stay was the breakfast this was actually very nice. The facilities for families with young children/babies definitely needs improving.

Went here for a wedding 17th June 2017. • no lifts in the building which is very inconvenient when you are taking travel cots, prams, babies and luggage upstairs. • food was bang average not the worst but it wasn't the best, really mediocre. • the bar is open until 1am which was great, what isn't great is not having a cash machine in the hotel and charging £4 for cash back....thieves without the balaclavas! • the rooms are good but the air con in them was terrible, you'd have gotten more cold air from an erupting volcano! For the money you pay, you expect better! Fix up Rogerthorpe

My husband and I got married at this wonderful hotel last year. The staff, from the waiters and waitresses to the bar staff couldn't do enough for us, especially Karen who coordinated our wedding for us. The food, atmosphere and grounds were beautiful - you made our day perfect. Everyone who attended commented on how much they enjoyed the day. The morning after our wedding day there was a couple who were seeing Karen to discuss the possibility of having their wedding there, I went across to the couple and advised they book as they wouldn't be disappointed - I really hope they chose you too. I have since recommend this hotel to friends and family and would like to thank every member of staff who made our day so very special. Apologies for the delay in writing the review :)

I held my wedding here last Friday (26th May) and I had the most amazing day. All the staff we so helpful especially Karen, my wedding coordinator. She organised everything I asked for and was with me every step of the way during the past year. A lot of the guests said what a beautiful place it is and how lovely the food was. I was very happy with every aspect of my day and would definitely recommend it. Thankyou again and I can't wait to come back and visit you again soon Mrs Rachel Baker x

We had a lovely air conditioned room, very clean with a quirky set up. Bathroom with a powerful shower, lovely towels and a little blue light beside the loo! great to find in the dark. We were so looking forward to our stay here. We could see and hear there was a wedding going on, at the beginning it wasn't too bad, despite kids running riot, pulling plants out, climbing everything they could, all right outside our window, ok but it was when the DJ started up, 12.45 am finally the loud music stopped, we were right above it. I woke up with a migraine, when I complained on check out to the receptionist we were told 'you would have had an e mail telling you about the wedding and the noise' my Husband has checked now we are home, it was a confirmation and this is it, no refund mentioned on it, nothing about noise. I will be complaining to Best Western website with a copy of his e mail. We have stayed before in another Hotel and also on the Sunday night we stayed in York at another Best Western what a difference! If you are attending a wedding and staying the noise won.t bother you, otherwise stay somewhere else, shame as the Hotel is beautiful and in gorgeous settings.

Stayed at a The Rogerthorpe manor hotel for my neices wedding.A beautiful building and grounds ,from arriving to leaving everything was excellent especially the staff who were so polite and professional.The wedding was perfect.Our room was spotless with everything we required for a good night's sleep.Breakfast was one of the best self service I have had with everything you could want.Would definitely recommend this hotel

We went here for Sunday lunch and it was very nice we have been on many times for various events NYE and charity balls well worth a visit staff are always welcoming you won't be disappointed easy access plenty of parking spaces

My wife and myself went to a family wedding held here and also stayed over for the night. You could not fault the place or the staff at all. The hotel has a lot of period features and certainly feels like your visiting somewhere special. The grounds are amazing and are superbly maintained. Giving a fantastic backdrop to the wedding pictures. There was a big conservatory where drinks and canapés were served. There was large room set up for the service which was going to be outdoors but the weather let things down but didn't spoil the back up plans. After the service we went into the bar area and conservatory until the main room had been extended and changed around for dinner and speeches'. Again it was set up amazingly. The food was served by pleasant staff and everything was cooked to perfection. The night do was also very good with DJ and dance floor and bar and hot and cold buffet. Everything flowed with the conservatory and garden which extended the already very large party area. Our room was a suite which was brilliant. With it's own bathroom, TV, music station & sitting area etc. It had two dressing areas with a table chair and mirror a piece. So we could get ready without falling over each other. Great idea. Great views of the gardens from the two windows (it was a corner room). The rooms were decorated to a high standard and felt very plush. We paid extra for an early check in, which was the best thing do since the wedding was at 1pm. The breakfast was served in the Jacobean Bar in the morning and was self service and all very good. Overall a brilliant hotel to stay in and to have wedding in. Well done.

We recently attended a 60th Birthday celebration at this hotel. The setting was fabulous, the carvery and service were superb and the room was amazing. We would definitely recommend this hotel to everyone.

We chose Rogerthorpe for a weekend stay as we were attending a wedding nearby. The manor is set in beautiful gardens complete with follies and seating areas, ideal for a peaceful drink on The terrace . Check in was easy and we were in our room quickly, although there is no lift which could be a problem for the less able. The room (executive) had recently been decorated in a very tasteful style and was spacious and spotlessly clean with a very comfortable bed. There was a wonderful shower room with everything provided. Did not eat in the restaurant on this occasion but have found the on site jacobean pub to be excellent. The service ,ambience comfort and location make this hotel a winner, would definitely return.
