Matfen Hall is the perfect place to get married. The hall and grounds are absolutely beautiful, you and your guests have a whole wing and a private garden to use as you wish. The staff were great, so friendly and helpful, nothing was too much trouble. Especially Victoria who helped us plan the wedding of our dreams and Peter who... More

My husband and I stayed here as part of a weekend exploring Hadrian's Wall. The hotel is simply lovely and restaurant was exceptional in the evening. The service was excellent too. Just a couple of things stopped it reaching five stars for me. Our room was beautifully decorated and spacious but, as it was located above the spa, it was... More

Beautiful hotel. Excellent food and service. Very comfortable room. Altogether a very pleasant experience. We stayed for 2 nights as our silver wedding present from our children. Very attractive setting and conveniently placed for many local attractions. We visited Alnwick castle and gardens, Hadrian's wall, Holy Island and Bamburgh castle. A great trip.

A luxury hotel in a slightly difficult location to find, I would suggest some element of preplanning would have helped me. Despite our room not being ready, the reception offered great service to look after our cases and transfer them up to the room for us in the afternoon. This allowed us to go and have a simple lunch at... More

We booked a 2 night get away just on a b&b basis as we prefer not to be tied for our evening meal. Excellent check in and attentiveness by all the staff. The fresh milk arrived before us to our room everytime! Breakfast was relaxed and part buffet but anything cooked came fresh from the kitchen we ate in the... More

While we have thoroughly enjoyed the general ambience of Matfen Hall and the quality of the Spa facilities and the nice food, there were a couple of issues that really ought not to have arisen and which could affect your enjoyment of a short break away at this hotel if you were to stay for more than one night. Looking... More

We had wonderful accommodations, fabulous food & service. Our room even had a heated towel rack. The atmosphere is elegant and relaxed. Food was outstanding. I sent a golf course photo to a friend, saying, "Wish you were here!"

Stayed one night on a spa break, included a treatment and dinner in the print room restaurant. Our room was comfortable and very clean. Nice view across to the church and so quiet and peaceful. The spa has just had a refurbishment so as expected all elements were in good order and the pool was lovely and warm. Therapists were... More
