Matfen Hall is an hotel I'd have no hesitation in recommending to anyone looking for a very good quality break in beautiful countryside. This is the third time my wife and I have stayed here, meeting up with friends who have travelled down from Scotland. Every time has been excellent. The staff are all brilliant and make every effort to... More

Take care if you expect to have a relaxing pampered time. This was not my experience. Unpleasant time in the pool, disruptive family and private Aquavit which limited time in the pool. Lunch in the conservatory was spoilt by noisy guests in the adjacent bar. The staff made no attempt to deal with very noisy aggressive swimmers. Lunch was very... More

Beautiful countryside location,stunning property, a big hotel with a very friendly personal service giving it a very homely feel. Probably the most enjoyable hotel stay we have had in a few years. Fantastic food in the library restaurant, only stayed a few days would have loved to stay a lot longer and will definitely go back. Something for everyone, short... More

I have been here several times, once on my own and several times with friends. The staff are very kind and friendly and make you feel at home. It is just the best place to go to unwind, relax and eat delicious food. Use of the spa is included and any treatments have a discount if you are a hotel... More

Matfen Hall was a pleasant surprise I found through secret escapes. Never been before until April this year, have already been back and will do again. Great accommodation where we could also take Kona our pet Labrador, very good restaurant, fantastic golf course and spa. Adjacent is the small village of Matfen with lovely little pub called 'The Black Bull'.

Breakfast was great and the staff very helpful ,the only negative is that the only mobile phone network that can... More

Spent a night there attending a friend's wedding, as they had booked out part of the hotel for the ceremony, wedding breakfast and evening do. Matfen Hall is a typical grand, sturdy Northumbrian stately home, one of the Blackett family residences in times past. Hotel boasts excellent amenities - a good sized spa with pool (unfortunately we didn't get chance... More

We booked our stay at this hotel as a last minute trip to do some early Christmas shopping and visit our Student son in Newcastle Upon Tyne.. What an amazing place! Our room was extremely spacious, comfortable, well appointed and very clean. The staff could not have been more helpful and the receptionist was very informative about the history of... More

Attended wedding here. Stunning building. Huge and easy to get lost but every corridor seemed to lead to another bar or restaurant. Wedding well planned and the food was lovely but a bit small portion wised. Drinks quite expensive but expected. Few snobby locals annoyed me next to a bit called The Library who were obviously members of some club... More

Stunning location, very friendly staff. The leisure facilities, and spa were fabulous, we felt very pampered. The hotel room was spacious, and toiletries were top rate. If that was not enough, the food in the library restaurant was truly sumptuous. We were only there for 2 days, and don't think the waistline could have stood any longer......yum.
