We had a one night stay at this beautiful manor. Very good price, amazing room, staff very helpful. Its a 10min drive from Whitby, the location is very quiet and peaceful. I highly recommend it. The four posters room is just amazing.

Booked this last minute through Booking.com as everywhere else in Whitby was already full. Stayed overnight on the Saturday. The Hotel and grounds are nice. Our room was cold but it was a very cold weekend. The breakfast was average nothing special and have certainly had better in a B & B. It cost £159.00 so was a bit disappointing....

I stayed here for 1 night in January. The rooms were lovely, lots of room and very well serviced. The staff were polite and could not do enough for you. The hotel itself is a former family estate of some sort I think, it's a beautiful building. Had a shower in the evening before we went out for a meal...

We stayed at Dunsley Hotel at the weekend, Sunday until Monday, on arrival we enquired about a table for the evening meal and were told they didn't know if we could get one because of staff illness! They would let us know, we went up to our room which at first was cold but soon warmed up when we turned...

Dunsley Hall is a lovely place to stay, the service was excellent. Helpful staff, great breakfast with plenty of choice. Very comfortable bed, large room and spotlessly clean. Set in beautiful surroundings very close to Whitby.

I stayed here for one night. Both my friend's room and my own were spotlessly clean. The hotel was very warm in heat and welcoming by staff. The food was good, as was the breakfast. The sitting lounge was nicely appointed and the open fire was lit especially for us. My only slight irk was that the local beers were...
