Have had 2 one night stays at Matfen over the last couple of months and had an enjoyable time both visits. Rooms are amazing and the food in the Library was delicious. The first visit was slightly spoiled by poor service in the bar. The cocktails were awful considering they were £8 each! The Spa is well worth visiting but... More

Just returned from a one night stay at Matfen Hall; very pleased with the room we had been allocated in the original part of the hall (premier room) which had everything we could ask for, huge comfortable bed, seating area, spacious en-suite bathroom, Bose radio, widescreen tv and beautiful views of the gardens. We ate at the Keepers Lodge which... More

It is rare indeed to find an hotel in which one can only use the word superb. Matfen Hall has it all. The accommodation is excellent, absolutely clean and spacious. The meals are obviously created and prepared by a master chef. The service is is of the highest standard, utterly professional but delivered with quiet charm and a friendly warmth.... More

Booked a hotel and spa deal. Everything was perfect, staff were very helpful, nothing was too much trouble for them and they have managed to perfect the art of materialising out of thin air when they are needed, something I never managed when I worked in hospitality. Only wish we had stayed longer and had chance to wander the grounds.... More

I stayed at Matfen in August for a friend's wedding and was very impressed by our stay. Almost all of the staff we came into contact with were friendly, the venue is beautiful and very tasteful and the grounds are gorgeous - complete with golf course and some magnificent trees. Our room was comfortable with lovely bed linen and welcome... More

Delicious and generous afternoon tea. Each person had 4 finger sandwiches, 2 scones, one plain & one fruit & 4 cakes. Comfortable chairs and staff on hand to refill teapots etc. The only disappointment was the room acted as a corridor from one part of the hotel to another. There seemed to be a party on and a lot of... More

We enjoyed two days relaxing after our wedding at Matfen Hall. The food was excellent, the room very comfortable and the spa was just what we needed after a frantic few days. The staff were polite and helpful too. The only niggle was the tired corridors and reception area, which gave a three-star first impression to a four-star hotel. Room... More
