We had an overnight stay at Matfen Hall and from the moment of arrival until we left we felt spoiled. Firstly we were given a room upgrade which was fantastic.

Everything about our stay was amazing, the service was excellent from entering the hotel. A lovely guy took our bags to our room, which was fabulous. We dined in the Library restaurant and the food and service was excellent. We stayed for 2 nights and will definitely be returning!
