I was looking through Secret Escapes when I spotted this place on a special offer. Having some time and a few pounds I thought I'd treat myself. What a find. This hotel is right out in the country side, really peaceful and quiet. My room overlooked the church. You can hear owls hooting at night. The grounds are perfect for... More

Beautiful hotel. Value for money Spa facilities were great. Only problem not enough loungers to relax. Good choice of places to eat and drink. We ate in the keeper lodge, pub in the grounds. Good selection of food, drink very reasonably priced Bedroom was a good size. Comfy bed. Everything that you needed. Even bathrobes in the room

This is my second visit to the hotel and spa. I am not a golfer so didn't use the golf course. The hotel is a lovely stately home set in beautiful countryside. The rooms are very pleasant and spacious. I had a large balcony on my room which was a bonus. If you enjoy good food and excellent service you... More

My husband and I had a lovely visit to Matfen Hall for afternoon tea and thoroughly enjoyed it. We were shown to a table in the Library, very plush and elegant and the staff were all smartly dressed, friendly and helpful. We were served a selection of finger sandwiches, scones with blackcurrant jam and clotted cream, and a very moreish... More

The setting for Matfen Hall is lovely. However, the rooms, for the price you pay are not quite up to standard. The shower is a dribble, there is no magnifying mirror, a heated towel rail above the toilet and limited space to put your washbag items. The food was average but the service at breakfast left a lot to be... More

I will speak with my breakfast team to determine if there were any issues this weekend, it would... More

I stayed here with my disabled Mum for a one night treat. I made the reservation directly with the hotel and explained the level of my Mum's disability. When we checked in she was in the new part of the hotel with the room reasonably accessible. My room was in a completely different part of the hotel only accessible via... More
