We arrived at lunchtime for an overnight stay with dinner and were warmly greeted. The Duke of York room was as expected for a truly historical building and we really enjoyed the opportunity to stay in it. Dinner was really good, both the food and the ambiance of the restaurant. An excellent breakfast in the morning completed our stay and...

The staff were as nice as you can get and so helpful. Breakfasts were amazing and dinner equally so. I am not sure what our room was...

We stayed for 3 nights in the Duke of York room, which is by far our favourite room in the hotel. The hotel only has 4 rooms and although the bathroom of the Duke of York room is small in comparison to the size of the room, it has a lovely shower and bath. The ceiling in the Duke of...

We are away for my husband's 'special birthday' and had booked Sutherland House last November based on the good reviews it receives.
