Food average, staff below average, wait for meal endless!! If you are looking for a quick lunch stop then avoid the Matfen Hall Conservatory. We had to ask to be served. Eventually the food arrived but still no drinks. When we asked about the drinks all we got was "whoops I forgot", no apology at any point. We had hoped... More

Had a wonderful short stay at Matfen Hall. Large bedroom with small ante-room; everything comfortable and well-thought through. Staff all courteous and helpful, nothing too much trouble. Excellent dinner in the Drawing Room, equally good breakfast with tea in the afternoon. Probably eaten too much but the weather was very good and there are plenty of walks.

I have stayed at Matfen Hall regularly for many years and up until the last twelve months I would say it was the best hotel I had ever stayed in. I have frequently recommended it to business contacts and friends alike. For whatever the reason the last twelve months have been like staying at Fawlty Towers. The service from the... More

I hate leaving Matfen. I've been there three times this year and it never fails. The staff are wonderful, the massages are bliss, the food is the best. I have to be dragged out, kicking and screaming. If I had more money I'd go and live there.

Just got back from 2 nights at Matfen hall. We booked as there was a family wedding we were invited to there. The first night, the day before the wedding, we booked a dinner included package, which meant we dined in the library restaurant. It was very good, nice food, nice service & great value for money with the package... More

Well we have stayed at Matfen Hall for many years, it was a top hotel. Unfortunately there seems to have been some changes and for the worst. We booked dinner bed and breakfast. The meal took for ever to arrive over, 50minutes we ended up walking out, the service was poor and the bar staff not trained properly. The last... More

The wedding went like clockwork with thanks to all the staff for ensuring it did so.The food here is top drawer and very well presented, the menu is very good and you can ask for almost anything and they will oblige....

Be careful of what you are getting. We booked three nights here - but cancelled after one. The room we booked was advertised as having 'outstanding views of the gardens or golf course' beside a picture showing a large window visible from the bed and with two chairs right beside the window. The reality was no outside view from the... More

We booked the summer gormet getaway which included afternoon tea, evening meal and bed and breakfast as well as use of the spa. The bedroom was lovely and clean and tidy and well presented. The bed was very comfortable. We really enjoyed the spa-again facilities were clean and tidy. Food was amazing-afternoon tea was filling, in fact we couldn't finish... More
