Everything was well designed and easily accessible. I had a treatment which was great value. The evening meal was of good quality, portion size... More

The hotel is in a lovely setting and is a very cosy country hotel. We had a nice room at the back with a balcony, the room was traditional and very comfortable with a modern... More

Lovely hotel in beautiful location and excellent staff. Nice food but wine a bit pricey. What ruined it all was the bang bang music you have to endure all day from the gym classes. I can't believe no one has complained about this before and so assume the hotel takes this as a risk against money made from the gym... More

This is our favourite hotel in Northumberland. We have stayed here around 4 time and most recently in July 2015 for 2 nights. We had a couples deal with evening meal and breakfast included. Great spa and food. Lovely location. Ideal for couples.

The hotel facilities and staff were exceptional. The food above the normal standard. A good selection of drinks. The 27 hole golf course was a good test for all levels of golfer and well laid out. Unfortunately the rain meant our second days golf was abandoned, so never got to play the Standing Stones course.

I booked a treat for my Mum, afternoon tea at Matfen Hall. We arrived 30 minutes early and we were told the room was not ready as there was a photo shoot and to have a seat in the bar. Not a problem. After about 15 minutes I though I overheard another table being invited to their afternoon tea. I... More

Not often do you find a country house hotel which really lives up to its reputation. Matfen Hall does - it is clearly a very well run hotel which is careful over staff training and as a result is a lovely place to stay. Friendly smiling staff make such a difference! We had a superb room at the front of... More

We were made very welcome, our room was good, we had upgraded, although it was a little dark as there seemed to be a window missing. We had a excellent breakfast every morning, our choice was kippers. but others in the party had an... More
