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.

The hall and grounds are very nice in most ways and we enjoyed our stay however the room payed for as a gift from both my sons was a deluxe room with four poster bed and extra comforts. But when my wife decided to get ready for the evening she noticed that the toilet cistern was leaking, and then also... More

I can't understand someone recently saying this hotel has an old fashioned decor - it has the most wonderful eclectic, arty look from the fireplace in the reception, to the wonderful staircase, the mixture of op art and classic prints, and the humorous take on Agatha Christie in The Library restaurant. I loved it. The receptionist was lovely and friendly,... More

This is a beautifully ran hotel/restaurant nestled in it's own grounds. Deers, rabbits and geese run around the large pond. The rooms are spacious, well equipped and quiet. Breakfast had a good range of food - I opted for the salmon and eggs. For the price, this is a bargain. Only slight problem was lack of WIFI in our room.

We stayed here for 2 days last week having purchased a voucher on living social. The whole stay was absolutely fantastic and would recommend it to anybody. The grounds are lovely & very well kept as is the building itself - yes it is old fashioned style decor but is extremely well maintained & spotlessly clean. The room (a standard... More

We stayed here for three nights - just down the road from the village of Durham. A tranquil place set in a series of fields where the deer roamed freely. There were nice walks around the hotel and into the fields. Meals were excellent, although we did not take breakfast due to our budget. We breakfasted at the nearby village... More

It is refreshing to find a hotel where the staff actually make you feel as if your stay matters to them. Some may think it is old fashioned, but the staff were I thought fabulous, and made my very short stay one of the best hotel experiences I have had for some time. The food was good, well cooked, hot... More

Also noticed following evening bar staff fingers in clean glasses and glasses not picked up from tables staff too interested in... More

Just back from a very relaxing couple of days at Whitworth Hall. Staff were very friendly and helpful. The food was good. (The Library menu was particularly good.) Our room was very clean and spacious and with what looked like a brand new TV. Feeding the deer was a definite highlight! The grounds and building are beautiful and in a... More
