I recently stayed at the hotel in County Durham. I had a long drive up to Durham, on arrival I parked in the car park, it was a short walk to the entrance, I presumed it was the entrance ( I just followed the signs) I went through a large function room and past a cosy bar, and arrived at... More

We have stayed here on many occasions and although we have always enjoyed our stay, we have never came away and been able to say - wow, we had a brilliant stay. There was always something wrong and something that needed their attention. On the last visit, the weather was very cold, unfortunately so was our bedroom, extremely drafty windows,... More

I had an amazing stay at the hotel. I was booked in for 3 nights and to be honest had one of the most relaxing and stress free times at the hotel. All the staff are friendly, well presented, they have the time of day for you. For example if you just want a nice convisation they will happily talk... More

We were given the wear dale room, it was nice, but it was cold. Despite the radiator being on. I walked over to the window and counted 158 dead flies on the window sill and several more on the carpet and live ones flying about. As soon as I reported this, we were offered another room, but declined as we... More

Since the first moment I arrived at the hotel I could feel the positive atmosphere around there. I was received by really friendly and trained staff who provided me with high-quality service. The breathtaking scenery of snowed hills I could appreciate from the bar while having a drink was awesome! Although outside was freezing I did not have problem in... More

Won a meal for two but was not expecting just how good the food was. Presented beautifully and tasted fantastic, would highly recommend a visit as we'll definitely be back. I had the gammon and it was done to perfection, whilst my partner had the hunters chicken. Chef came over to say this was the first week of New promotions... More

My daughter and hubby booked their wedding here and up until the day everything was rosy. Unfortunately lots of things were missing from planned itinerary. Two lots of Canapés, toast drinks, scheduled tea and coffee due to be served with cake, the wedding cake stand......the list goes on. My 80+ year old parents had to get ready in what looked... More

Decided to take Helme Park up on their offer of two 3 course lunches on a Sunday for £10, we were booked in at 12.30 and immediately on arrival we were warmly greeted and directed to the bar area for pre lunch drinks, big open fire and great views from the large windows at the front, the drinks were cheap...

My wife and I stayed at the Helme Park Hall Hotel in mid-November for two nights and we thoroughly enjoyed it! The hall was built in the 1690's so stairs creak and rooms are quaint. So what, when you realise it was built only 200 years after Columbus discovered America! The food is absolutely delicious and the staff, all local,... More
