I visited Matfen Hall for 2 nights on a golf trip with my wife and 7 other couples. It is an imposing hotel in beautiful countryside yet only 20 miles from Newcastle. The room we had was large with an extremely large and comfortable bed, tea / coffee making facilities, a large modern TV, fridge. Very luxurious! Breakfast was substantial... More

We had our wedding at Matfen and can't fault the hotel or staff in any way. From the first meeting with the wedding coordinator we felt in safe hands. We asked for nothing on the big day everything was thought of and staff were there to do it. Our family and friends enjoyed the meal very much. The barbecue in... More

My daughter's wedding was here. The location was awesome. The rooms were great too. The view was great. Food during the day was good. The problem is the service in the evening, after the event coordinator left the service was terrible. The food during the day at the site down dinner was great. The food on the evening buffet was...

Spent a night here on a stay and play weekend. The hotel and grounds beautiful. Had a lovely room. The staff were very helpful and friendly throughout. Enjoyed the breakfast, especially the Seahouses kippers in the stunning library room. Drinks I the conservatory were good with a nice wine choice. Evening meal enjoyable in the golf lodge.

We originally booked it for 4pm, but as we finished doing the near by go ape earlier than we thought we asked them if we could go in earlier, and that seemed no trouble at all. Venue lovely and sitting in the bay window watching a wedding party having their pictures taken. Ordered both a traditional and a gentleman afternoon... More

We had our annual 2 day golf meeting here for 20 people. It is an impressive building and the golf courses were good. The staff were all friendly and helpful. We had our evening meal in a private room and had excellent service and the same for breakfast. One pleasant thing was the reasonable price of drinks in the golf... More

Sunday lunch for 11. The staff were polite and hard working, and the premises are impressive, but service was painfully slow. We weren't in any hurry but drinks, once ordered, took ages to arrive. Main course was plated-up (no sign of the advertised "carving trolley") and just hot enough, but then there was a long wait for the vegetables to... More

We came here as an escape from a difficult time, and we were given what we hoped for. From the minute we arrived Matthew aka Joshua was so polite, so helpful, and genuinely went out his way to make our experience. Whilst the kitchen was slow, hence the 4 stars the food was beautiful and well presented. Highly recommended, especially... More
