We arrived on Saturday for a two night break, the receptionist checking us in was very polite and attentive, the room 26 was nicely located and clean & tidy. With plenty of natural light. The restaurant in the Library Room was very good, service and food first class.
Special mention to three members of staff, John the barman, his wife Gina who works in the restaurant and Carol on reception all stars and deserve special praise, but all staff were very at tentative throughout our stay.
The deer park and weather added to a very enjoyable weekend break. Well worth a visit if staying in County Durham.

A short review as I have stayed here many times and happy to come back, that in itself is good! So in summary, good rooms, they do vary in size and decor so if you want deluxe then ask and book it. Some rooms are in the original part of the House with views over the park some are in the annex or extension with no view.
Food is always good, whether you have the a la carte or standard.
Staff are very friendly and want to ensure your stay is good.
The grounds look like they are set out for a wedding, what a lovely place to hold it.

Stayed: April 2013, traveled on business

Visited for a birthday party and was very impressed. The hotel is located in very picturesque surroundings - ideal in good weather. The hotel itself was superb with a nice restaurant, plus the added bonus of a deer park, where you can feed the deer.

Reception and service staff were very helpful.

I was very impressed with this hotel. The staff were friendly and helpful, the rooms clean and nicely decorated. I though the food in the restaurant was excellent, and would go as far to say that it was one of the best meals I've ever had. I had the confit of duck for main and it was delicious. The grounds were very picturesque and young children would enjoy feeding the deer.

this hotel was everything that it said on the tin.Set in a wonderful and peaceful location within a deer park it made the perfect choice for a three day break.The room was excellent (room 3) well worth the extra to upgrade just for the view alone.we booked a meal for the saturday night and that too was excellent.The only downside was the fact that we could not get the shower to work and it only gave out cold water but the bath was fine but that is really nitpicking. We will return thanks for a great time.

Room Tip: Pay the extra for a roomin the main hall.

Thak you for taking the time to write your review. I am delighted to read that you had such an enjoyable stay and that you liked your room. Room 3 probably has the best views with its dual aspect windows, and I agree that it is worth paying that little bit extra for a deluxe room.
I look forward to welcoming you back to Whitworth Hall Hotel in the near future
