Used to work here when it was a Cheshire Home in the '60's. Staff were wonderful, they gave me my old room to stay in, what a difference! The hotel is absolutely beautiful, the surroundings are beautiful and the staff were the nicest and friendliest I have met in any hotel around the world. We had fish and chips and... More

When my daughter's hen weekend with friends was cancelled due to the air traffic controller's strike I phoned Maftfen Hall who were more than accommodating and extremely helpful. The group had a really good weekend, food was excellent, facilities very good and they praised the staff highly. Thank you for rescuing what could have been a very disappointing group. Needless...

Been to Matfen Hall for afternoon tea today to celebrate my Dad's birthday. The food was delicious and my 2 children were also catered for well with a children's afternoon tea. The setting was lovely and some of the staff were helpful and friendly but not always available or attentive. We also had issues when we arrived because the booking... More

Spent two nights, last Sunday and Monday in this lovely hotel. The weather was beautiful and the countryside looked stunning. Ate in the Library Restuarant one night, very good meal. The second night ate in the Conservatory Restaurant which fell short of our expectations. All in all, a nice break in this relaxing hotel. The staff and service are first... More

A beautiful hotel with a lovely atmosphere. The bedrooms are a delight; so comfortable, clean and tastefully decorated. The food in the library restaurant is delicious and the staff are friendly; attentive and very helpful. The wi-fi is surprisingly good, providing fast connection throughout the hotel. I normally find faults with hotels, albeit minor ones; but with Matfen, I'm struggling!

Me and my partner stayed here for a nice night away. The room was ok, didn't blow me away. Bathroom again was ok. Great facilities, lovely swimming pool and sauna area. And we had a hit on the driving range which was reasonably priced. We dined in the library which served some lovely food.

The spa weekend was booked for us by my partner as a birthday surprise. From the minute we pulled into the car park I knew it would be wonderful. The staff, every one of them, are helpful and friendly without being obsequious, service second to none, spa treatment was divine, food was out of this world! The room was lovely,... More

Stayed on Friday night with 3 of my friends as a treat for our birthdays. We booked the girls night in package and it was excellent value for money. We headed up just after lunch on the Friday and went to the spa. We had some beauty treatments booked at differing times so were looking forward to lying round the... More

Just returned from 3 nights at Matfen, we last visited in 2013. We requested a room which was away from the church on this occasion, unfortunately that was the only negative with our last visit. The hotel confirmed that if possible they would accommodate our request, and they did. We were allocated accommodation in the old part of the hotel... More

My wife and I stayed for one night on route to view another location for a group weekend in 2016. I picked it because of its location and TripAdvisor rating. The hotel has very impressive grounds with walking paths along the championship golf course. Our room was pleasant, but very warm as was the entire hotel. Booked dinner in the... More
