“A Beautiful Hotel In Tranquil Setting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2012

The rooms reflect the age and history of this former stately home; with a very modern bathroom. It is like stepping back in time. If you want a piece of history (built 1268) in beautiful grounds look no further. All the staff were professional and friendly. Being a real ale fan I loved the Stables bar and restaurant that sells approx 10 beers brewed on site at the hotel's microbrewery. A must for any real ale fan. We ate in the Stables restaurant - and were very impressed with the high quality of food and value for money. Breakfast in the Eden room was an experience, again great food in a beautiful period ballroom. I thoroughly recommend this hotel (and we didn't see any of its many ghosts!). My wife and I will definately be going back.

Myself and a colleague stayed here for 4 days while we were working in the area. I had an excellent week but my colleague was not so impressed. This was not the hotels fault in any way, it was just the fact that he was terrified at the idea of possibly seeing a ghost lol. The staff were very friendly and helpful as were the bar staff in the stables bar which is part of the hotel. The hotel is a bit out of the way but excellent location for the birds of prey center, going wild adventure park and Beamish living history museum. If you like real ale I would recommend silver buckles bitter served in the stables bar.
Would I stay again, yes I would. But I am not sure my colleague would.
Perhaps I told him to many ghost stories :)

This is the third time I've stayed at beamish, but the first time I've reviewed. Previously we have attended wedding receptions and enjoyed the experience. This time we came on a valentines package and enjoyed a five course meal which was delicious. The service was great and the room clean comfortable and well presented.
Excellent value for money, lovely setting - fab breakfast !! Thanks again beamish , we will be back.

Visited the Stables just before Christmas and was delighted. Nice warm fires, good champagne and comfy sofas. Also sell little kegs of beer to take away! Beer festival after Christmas was a bit, well, beerless but i will definitely be back to sample more of the delights this place has to offer!

We stayed at this hotel last weekend (3/02/12) and was very pleasantly suprised, the Hotel Staff were great, the room was lovely (although I know I am nit picking but the bed was very hard and uncomfortable). Breakfast was delicious with plenty of choices i.e kippers, smoked salmon, eggs benedict, full Northumberland, and plenty of it. We had evening dinner in the Stables Bar and the only complaint was the dessert which was a chocoholics delight (it wasn't) it was terrible and for £6.50 i would have preferred a bar of chocolate. Would definately stay here again, very good value for money, I have paid double these prices for Hotels alot worse, it makes a refreshing change.

We got married here last year. Weve wanted to go back since and decided to celebrate my wifes 30th b'day at Beamish on the 24 th january. When I rang to book I requested room 102 as this was our honeymoon suite last year. We arrived mid-afternoon after a quick drink in the stables bar to a brilliant welcome from the lady on reception who actually remembered that we were married there and even our names. Room 102 was ready and waiting which I thought was very good. We ate at the stables restaurant that night, the food ( chicken starter, venison & fillet steak) was lovely. Also the service from the male waiter was brilliant and we heard a few comments from other tables which were very favourable about him. Breakfast the next morning was spot on and presented great. All in all a lovely stay and would recommend once again.
