I stay in numerous hotels as part of my job. They are usually fit for purpose but bland. So I was delighted when I arrived at Whitworth Hall. On entering the grounds I passed the lake and the deer park to the car park near the main building. A warm and very friendly greeting met me. After checking into a... More

Set in lovely country park where friendly deer roam freely. Birth place of the legendary Bobbie Shafto which is shown in the hotel. Excellent location for visiting Durham and surrounding area. We stayed in room 4 which is a large room at the front of the hotel which I could recommend. There as been a great deal of thought put... More

We spent our wedding night at Whitworth Hall and have decided that we will return hopefully for our anniversary. Beautiful Hotel, interesting history of bonnie bobbie shafto. The fallow deer that live in the ground's are delightful to see and feed as they are so gentle. Steve and Dawn Shotton, Durham England

I'm sure I did a splurge on this hotel on their own site and forgot to share it here! Long story short-its a beautiful building with amazing grounds made special by the honour of being able to walk amongst the deer. Food is fab and all areas a real joy to be in. No spa but I didnt miss it... More

Top drawer on this one! All Staff are fab! In particular my thanks goes to John The Night Porter who was most helpful during a very very late extended stay check in. Thank you John! The hotel is in lovely surroundings. Good WIFI for a weeks business trip, great food, clean rooms, charming!

Cannot fault the location and the service, peaceful and easy access to road links, food also very good. Would like to go back for a family break at somepoint, no problem in recommending the hotel and facilities.

We attended a wedding at the church followed by reception at the hotel and an overnight stay. The whole weekend was a great experience surrounded by beautiful surroundings. The staff were friendly and helpful and the rooms reasonably priced Would certainly recommend

Lovely hotel and loved the decor. The room could have done with a bit of an upgrade and then the hotel would be more 4 star than 3. The highlight was the herds of deer just outside the front door. Friendly and helpful staff. Wi-fi not working though but that was only downside.
