"The whole stay was enjoyable with excellent service and food. We had a pet dog and there was even a dog mat with water bowl, a dog chew and dog biscuits in the room on arrival, which our dog enjoyed."

Gisborough Hall is an ivy-clad country-house hotel in the North Yorkshire countryside, praised by The AA for its "richly furnished" rooms and "excellent" food. The Victorian property was a finalist in the White Rose Hotel of the Year Awards 2015 and holds a Gold Award from Green Tourism.

This AA 4-star property is nestled on the edge of the North York Moors National Park. It's around 30 minutes' drive from the picturesque fishing village of Whitby and the northeast coast, and is just over an hour from York.

The former home of the prestigious Chaloner family -- the manor of Gisborough was acquired in 1558 by Thomas Chaloner, an ambassador for Elizabeth I -- Gisborough Hall has 70 bedrooms, spread across the main house and the Woodlands Wing. Choose a Feature Room with 4-poster bed for a treat -- they come with perks including luxury toiletries and complimentary chocolates. The hotel's Revival Zone spa offers a wide selection of pampering treatments (supplements apply) and tempting deals on spa packages.

There are plenty of dining options: enjoy morning coffee in the cosy Drawing Room with open fires, take afternoon tea in the Main Hall, or enjoy a pre-dinner drink on the Terrace, taking in the woodland views. Once dinner rolls around, you can choose from the fine-dining 2-AA-Rosette Chaloner's Restaurant or the more informal G Bar & Bistro, which serves contemporary dishes made using locally sourced ingredients.

An impressive 95% of Travelzoo members who reviewed their stay at this property enjoyed their experience, praising the "excellent food", "exceptionally helpful" staff and "beautiful grounds".

Other Comments: With regard to value for money my comments are based on the travelzoo deal price paid for our stay and not the regular room tariff.
