Best Western Beamish Hall Country House Hotel
Ranked #1 of 1 Hotels in Beamish
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed July 13, 2008

Beamish Hall is in a superb location. Is quite well decorated and furnished. However, if you have rooms at the front it is necessary to keep your windows closed, as there is a golf course opposite, and the machinery starts very early in the morning.
They seem to be planning various outdoor activities, and when I was there there was an aweful lot of noise going on.
Food was reasonable, but staff, though friendly enough, are not the brightest. I wouldn't go back.

We won a night at the hotel but upgraded our room to premier room at extra cost to us. The hotel was gorgeous our first room was great - the double jacuzzi bath was fantastic but we had to be moved to another room because the staff could not locate a key!
Second room as even nicer although the second jacuzzi wasn't quite as big. Dinner was great and breakfast was good too.

My only gripe was that I left my mobile phone and its charger in the room by acident when we checked out and when I went back the next day they had disappeared completely! I wasn't exactly happy with the way everything was handled by the staff regarding this. As yet phone still hasn't turned up.

Booked through Laterooms I got a room for £75 bed and breakfast. The bedroom was excellent with plasma tv and freeview channels, free internet broadband, lovely furniture and a new bathroom.
I even got a countryside view !
The breakfast was wonderful, with a hot plate, quality food and an extensive choice.
Staff couldn't have been more helpful, and this hotel is a definite for a return.

We stayed at the hotel Apr 4th to Apr 7th and found it very peaceful despite there being a wedding, we were in room 1 and never heard a thing. The setting is stunning and Beamish Open Air Museum was a treat even though it did snow and settled very quick. All in all a beautiful Hotel with friendly helpful staff and would return anyday for a tranquil break in glorious surroundings.

Despite appearing to be a serene, fabulous setting, there is a lot of noise at this hotel. Also, I understand their future plans will include an aweful lot of noise in the future. They are planning a lot of very very noisy activities which hardly fit in with the peaceful countryside retreat that they promote. Lets see if this comment makes it to the site!

I was looking for a hotel for a romantic night, in the countryside, yet not to far from a city (only 20 mins from Durham). When we arrived, the building looked magnificent and the entrance hall met up to our expectations. There were leather chairs and log fires burning, very romantic and the the staff were as welcoming.

We were upgraded to a honeymoon suite as there was a wedding party on the night of our stay, and there were no premier rooms available. All i can say is "WOW" - this would have cost £300 pnight for a city centre hotel . A four poster bed with huge TV and tea/coffee facilities. There was a door off the room which led into the bathroom (size of a double room) with walk in shower and double jacuzzi (like the ones you see in the Hollywood films).

We decided to make the most of the hotel and ate in the restaurant. Fantastic value (£16.00 for two courses) but the portions were enormous and the staff could not do enough to help. Breakfast was very good but not much choice in terms of veggie meat substitutes. Fruit, salad, beans, mushrooms, eggs , pastries, yoghurts and toast -enough to keep you going until afternoon tea.

The only downside of the stay, was the 10am check out .

All we can say is fantastic value for money, great hotel, friendly staff and an amazing hotel.

This is the second time that I've stayed at this hotel for business purposes. Having stayed in some dodgy places in other parts of the country over the past month, it was a pleasure to be back at the Beamish Hall Hotel again. The staff were all professional and friendly, the roaring log fire in the hall was gorgeous and the bedroom was so comfortable. Highly recommended.
