We stayed for three nights, two of which were wonderfully peaceful and relaxing. The spa and gym facilities are fantastic and dinner in the Library is up there with the best, with an especially good wine list. Breakfast is also excellent and very slickly delivered by a good team of staff. On our third night however (a Friday), they had... More

We chose to stay in Matfen Hall due to its proximity location to explore Hadrians Wall, as a stop by during our England road trip from London to Edinburgh. We really enjoyed the wonderful countryside and fresh air of Northumberland. After a tiring journey along the hills & visiting the roman fort museum, staying in this Matfen Hall mansion feels...

These are the 2 words that best describe this hotel. A traditional Country House with countless Number of Awards under its belt (which you can see why) Nothing too much trouble for the staff and some of the best Spa Facilities in the UK.... The Food was all fabulous too. All in all, a great little mid week break.

Dear Guest, I’m disappointed you have rated us only 2 stars. Robes in the spa are generally for our spa day guests, hotel guests are supplied robes in their bedrooms for ease and comfort of the guest. It is unfortunate that your daughter must have been here during a busy period in the spa as staff would normally supply another... More
