My wife purchased a 2 night stay via Group-on. Hence the cost of the stay was quite reasonable for the accommodation, but we would not have wanted to pay the full price. We took the opportunity to have a 3 day break in Northumberland to celebrate my wife's birthday. The hotel has a nice quite location with attractive garden and restaurant, which I am sure would be a good place for small weddings. Although our room was a little tired and on the cool side (until we mentioned this to the helpful staff) we enjoyed our stay and in particular the food. The set dinners that were available at the time we were there were excellent and offered good value for money. A shame it is not closer to our home as I would be inclined to use the restaurant alone as the food we were offered was so good. This was the same with the breakfast and we particularly liked the locally sourced produce.

Spent a two night Groupon deal trip here, included Room, Breakfasts and Dinner one night, room in main country house was great, spacious and good size ensuite, comfy bed. We found food very good and dined there the second night as well with family who lived nearby. Staff were very attentive--there was only a few couples inhouse. We stayed mid week, suspect weekends are busy--it is also a popular wedding venue. We would stay there again, thanks to all staff, from Australia.

We stayed in a room within the hotel which was clean, comfortable and had plenty of charactor. The restaurant is beautiful and the food and service were excellent. We stayed mid week, and it was just a pity there wasn't more people there to give it a bit more atmosphere.

This hotel was booked for me for a business trip so I had no choice. It is a small country house hotel but I stayed in one of the rooms across the courtyard which was OK but not great. I am not usre if the rooms in the main hotel are better.

The room was clean and bed was comfortable. The bathroom was very small with a very small shower which didn't have a great flwo of water.

We ate in the restaurant and most of the reviews of these seem very positive. Indeed it was in general very good, however, I had a steak which was far too salty and others who were there made the same comment. The rest of the food was excellent but it was a bit of a let down overall if the chef can't season somethign well.

check out was fine and the price was good and well below the published rate. If you can get a good rate it is worth it fro a night but the overall quality doesn't seem to match the publisehd room rate.

Our experience was of fantastic staff. The whole Horton Grange team couldn't do more to ensure everyone had a great day . Alastair disceetly overseeing the day . Having quiet , supportive words. His expertise and reassuring manner was great . Nothing was too much for him. His catering team ,provided the last minute individual touches to the wedding cake . Trevor was like a favourite uncle. He lit all the tea lights in the trees !!!! Bar staff helpful and good humoured . The wedding had lots of personal touches that the Horton Grange facilitated to perfection . An unforgettable warm family wedding . Thanks we had a day to fondly remember .

Attended the wedding reception of a friend at Horton grange recently. It's located in a beautiful location and has lovely grounds but I was horrified by the attitude of some of the staff. Except for one young man on the bar who was very friendly, the staff could not have been ruder. Everything anybody asked for seemed to be a bother. The man ordering at the bar before me was told by the manageress that his six pounds change would have to be given to him all in twenty pence pieces. When he objected, he was told that there was nothing she could do if he didn't have the correct change. In the end he had to buy another drink. Beautiful food and location spoilt by some of the staff.
