Everything you need for a relaxing stay.

shu1317, Newcastle, United Kingdom
Invited to an evening wedding reception and decided to stay overnight. We were able to enjoy the spa facilities then have an enjoyable meal in the conservatory, which has lovely views. Our room was a classic room in the newer part of the hotel. It was clean and well decorated and had everything we needed. The breakfast menu was extensive, with table sevice. All of the staff were pleasant, professional and efficient. Although checkout is at 11a.m. you can use the facilities for the rest of the day, which makes the price of the stay good value. We will return in the Spring to be able to take advantage of the walks around the hotel.

fantastic wedding!

tenerifetodd, Newcastle upon Tyne, United Kingdom
just spent the most fabulous 2days at this venue. cannot praise the staff enough for a more than enjoyable stay and fantastic wedding of my lovely friend. the whole event was nothing less than perfect. to finish off we pampered ourselves in the spa and beauty room. big thanks to cherise for our wonderful relaxing treatments. WELL DONE 10 out of 10 to all!

Fab hotel

Peter M,
Hotel is fabulous and the grounds are stunning,food was excellent and nothing was too much trouble for the staff. The hotel is a great base to explore Northumberland returning to the luxury of Maftens spa or a quiet read by the log fire in the drawing room.We will be returning soon.

60th Birthday Weekend

nhc22, Bristol, United Kingdom
This place is just fantastic in a stunning part of the world. Service, food, room standards, golf, Spa and real staff friendliness they've got it all. An absolute hidden gem often overlooked by higher profile resorts in the region, try this one next time you won't be disappointed

A 60th Birthday weekend and golf to remember

MorpethFoody, Morpeth, United Kingdom
We arrived on Saturday 4th Feb for a weekend stay to celebrate a friends 60th Birthday. A planned round of golf for 16 of the guests attending the weekend beckoned so off I went. We were blessed with glorious blue sky's and although a bit chilly the round was spectacular in its glorious surroundings, some of the golf played was OK too. One of the better places in Northumberland to enjoy views from the golf course. We grabbed a very good sandwich served by happy helpful staff, in the Keepers Lodge where golfers gather to discuss their rounds, and all was well in the world. Following this we had a night of food and fun that will remain with me for a very long time. We were a large party of around 65 and nothing seemed to be too much trouble for the staff. Food was excellent as was the wine which was consumed in The Great Hall which is a spectacular room for any event (it was set for a wedding when we left the following morning). We retreated downstairs to the Vault bar and function room to continue the party with a live band and music which went on long into the wee hours, which is a great space with fab facilities. Following more drinks and fun in the Conservatory bar we dragged ourselves to the lift and headed off to bed in our very comfortable room which was well equipped and toasty warm. Breakfast was the last thing on my mind after filling ourselves the night before but we made it down to a sun-drenched room with breakfast that was amazing, and again the staff could not have been more helpful. Sadly we had to go home as I would have loved another round of golf. I can honestly say that although the Hotel is only 45 minutes from where we live it felt like we could have been anywhere and we totally chilled out and had a wonderful time. We will be back soon as I bought an "afternoon tea voucher", which I am already looking forward to.
