This is the forth time we have spent a night at this hotel. Once again the room was up to a high standard, but we did up grade the room. But as we stayed in this type of room before. They are bigger and you do get a settee. Once again the evening meal was one of the best we... More

We booked to stay for a night in Matfen Hall a couple of weeks ago on the “bed & breakfast + wine” offer the hotel ran over the festive period. We arrived late afternoon and were “checked in” by an efficient and brisk young lady but in a totally impersonal style with no hint of a smile or mention by... More

We stayed mid week on one of their spa deals. The service and staff are outstanding. They are friendly and very accomidating. The room (no 19) was a very spacious twin room over looking the courtyard. There was a seperate dressing space and a large bathroom. The hairdryer provided was ace (not one of those wimpy rubbish ones). The spa... More

We arrived at Matfen Hall around 2pm. Our delux room was made up and ready when we arrived. We were very impressed by the hotel room and the facilities. It did not feel overly pretentious, yet was classy and the service was very efficient. We chose to go for a walk over the using the spa facilities, so can't comment... More

Stayed overnight on a Sunday with husband and had a lovely break, our first at Matfen. Every member of staff we saw were friendly. The food was very nice, we ate in the conservatory and my husband had the cod and I the pasta - although I do think the menu is a little limited. Used the spa which was... More

Had an overnight stay here- only downside I hadn't booked to eat there and consequently was informed that there was only room service or to eat in the conservatory bar! Not a good start- so I didn't bother with any and went for an Indian! That said the room was very good and large- plenty of everything that you needed... More

We stayed there in December, just for a short break. We managed to get a good deal including meal in the Conservatory. When we arrived we spent afternoon in the Spa, which was not overcrowded and very enjoyable. The evening we used the Conservatory where the atmosphere and food was good. If we go back we may try the Library... More

Always helpful and friendly hotel staff, only issue is their management and approach to food are now very old fashioned and stuck in the 1990's. 1) charging my husband over £200 per night for a room and breakfast in a standard room for a weekend stay. This was after we have stayed with them for a total of 8 days... More
