Yorkshire hotels with hot tubs

There’s something very satisfying about easing into a steaming hot tub in the full knowledge that after your muscles have been relaxed and you have finished your cold glass of champagne, you will soon be eating a delicious 4-course meal and heading off to a plush bed. The following Yorkshire hotels with hot tubs have all of this on offer.

The hot tubs that go with every hotel are, for many people, a holiday essential. Whether it be a small, private indoor cedar clad affair, or a more accommodating eight seater outside, there is no doubt that hot tubs have magic qualities in their ability to relax, soothe and revive after a strenuous few hours travelling.

The Hotel Guru has put together an ultimate guide to great hotels with even greater hot tubs – outdoor ones overlooking rustic landscapes, indoor private ones perfect for two, and spectacular hydrotherapy hot tubs perfect after a long massage in the hotel’s spa.

Here we look at Yorkshire hotels with hot tubs - idyllic destinations for anyone looking to kick back and relax at the same time as being on the doorstep of a region filled with culture, history, attractions and great restaurants.

York hotel with hot tub

First on our list of Yorkshire hotels with hot tubs, is Middlethorpe Hall & Spa, a 17th Century mansion owned by the National Trust, on the outskirts of York. Not only is its location ideal – 2 miles from the city centre – it has an award-winning restaurant (2AA Rosettes) – and a well-equipped spa, with a large swimming pool, sauna, steam room, massage treatments and, of course, a cosy hot tub.

This hotel is perfect for the mercurial amongst you. One day you can choose to stay at the hotel and be pampered, the next you can pop into York to be awed by the Minster, see a performance at the Grand Opera House or have a lazy afternoon tea at the famous Betty’s Tearoom.
