Fantastic support in a crisis
I just want to express how fantastic the night manager was when my daughter was taken ill with heat exhaustion. In the middle of the night the gentleman covering the reception desk helped us and even cleared up after she was sick. He was so helpful and kind. A really lovely place to stay with wonderful staff!

Unfulfilled potential……
The Parsonage could be a fabulous destination, but was let down by numerous little jiggles. Started as we checked in - to be told we weren’t actually in the hotel itself, but above the gastro pub next door (part of the same business). Couldn’t get dinner first night, fully booked! Managed to get a room service meal, advised them we wouldn’t be paying the surcharge as we didn’t have it in our room, but in the conservatory ! Breakfast was challenging each morning, had to wait 5-10 minutes for a table to become available! The food in the gastro pub was really good, a plus… Overall impressions were that the place has huge potential, as the building and grounds are really impressive, but needs a firm hand to take control, spend a bit on decor, and better staff training (or more staff!)

Beautiful old hotel
We stayed here for a day trip to Cayton bay and Duran Duran concert. It is a nice hotel with swimming pool. The room is large but no lift to the upper floor. Avoid parking your car under a tree.. the birds there are savage..half of my car was covered with their droppings.. it was not nice. Luckily there is shell garage not far so we washed the car before travel any further 😆
