We stayed here to celebrate our anniversary and had a great time. The ladies we spoke to on the phone when booking were both great and upon arrival the receptionist who greeted us was lovely. Throughout our stay we found the staff (who for the most part were quite young) to be very friendly and extremely professional We went for... More

We met up with friends for our 'yearly' get together and had a late deal which included B&B with evening meal in the Library which was wonderful. The staff were very friendly and attentive, and all of us enjoyed both our evening meals and our breakfast. Our room had a patio area which would be lovely to enjoy in the... More

We stayed at Matfen Hall for 2 nights in February. We had stayed there three years ago and it was even better this time. The food was delicious, the spa has been done up since we were there last and was really nice but the thing that really makes Matfen Hall stand out is the staff. Without exception the staff... More

Went to Matfen Hall for afternoon tea with my friend on a Tuesday afternoon. The setting is stunning, and the room was cosy and comfortable. I have a wheat intolerance which is often very difficult when eating out. I had advised them of this before going and they really catered to my every need. Our server advised us that she... More

Warm welcome & a quick, easy check-in. Lovely, cosy room with great view of garden and golf course. Thoroughly enjoyed spa treatment (hot stone massage) and the spa facilities. Meal in the Library Restaraunt was superb! All staff were very helpful & friendly.

Got a late deal for bed & breakfast with meal in the conservatory as a little pre Valentine treat & it was bliss. It was perfect from the minute we checked in. All the staff were so friendly, from reception, spa, conservatory and in the library at breakfast the following morning. We have stayed there before & a nice little... More

I stayed here in October as part of a wedding party and I've got to say this hotel is stunning, really nice rooms, very clean, although I didn't use the pool or spa treatments they looked absolutely perfect. If you are looking for somewhere as a wedding venue I couldn't think of anywhere more perfect, the hall in the centre... More

We stayed at Matfen Hall on Friday 13th February for a valentines break. We decided to go the whole hog and book afternoon tea too. The Drawing Room was my favourite part of the whole hotel - with a roaring fire and cosy armchairs it makes you feel at home despite such grand surroundings. The afternoon tea was delicious, all...
