We have been to Matfen a few times over the last 5 years and have decided to get married here in May 2019. We were invited to our menu tasting evening and took advantage of the overnight stay and the spa. The food was absolutely unbelievable, the kitchen staff are absolutely amazing for the food they produced. Every dish was superbly crafted and every bite left you wanting more. The hospitality staff are also amazing, we were well and truly looked after. A huge mention to the wedding planning team who have dealt with us, Lisa, Laura and Rachel who have looked after us every step of the way and done everything possible for us. Highly recommend Matfen. Can not wait until we go back.

Surprise baby shower

K8will, UK
On Sunday my sister and I surprised our sister in law with her baby shower, from organising in October with Victoria to the moment we left everything was fabulous. We were lucky enough to book the terrace room which has recently been refurbished and it looks amazing with stunning views! The party was for 24 adults and 3 children, we had pre ordered afternoon tea. The afternoon tea was served on the time we had asked it to be, all was extremely tasty and also very helpful with a couple of our guests with dietary requirements. The children got their own afternoon tea which was very children friendly, all 3 girls were very happy with their milkshakes! A very good fun filled day with the help from Max, Jackie and Kara. Fabulous staff and more than happy to help with anything. Most of our guests at the baby shower hadn’t been to Matfen Hall before as they travelled down from Scotland on the morning have all messaged to say how amazing the venue was. Thank you again for a fabulous day!! I’m sure we will all be back!

Relaxing couples break

Chloe P, Tynemouth
Stayed here with my husband last week and we had a fantastic time. We arrived in the afternoon and the ladies on reception were really welcoming and friendly. Our room was out of this world, spacious and really well laid out with everything we could need. We headed down to the spa and received a warm welcome there too. We spent a couple of hours enjoying the pool, jacuzzi and sauna with a glass of Prosecco which was lovely! We had dinner in the Library and it was really lovely. We both had pigeon to start and fillet steak for main. Everything was perfectly cooked and delicious and the staff were friendly and attentive without being overbearing. We ordered breakfast to our room the next morning as the view from our room was so spectacular we didn't want to leave! It arrived on time, was hot and catered for my gluten intolerance perfectly. It had snowed over night while we were there so we woke up the prettiest view. We can't wait to come back and I've recommended it to anyone I've seen since!

Couples Spa Break

NorthEastEvaluation, Newcastle upon Tyne, United Kingdom
We had an overnight stay with an afternoon tea and breakfast. We arrived at 12 o'clock, pleasantly greeted by a member of the spa team, she showed us around all the facilities. Spa was very relaxing and enjoyable. Afternoon Tea took place in the conservatory bar, we opted to stay in our robes provided by the spa. Selection of sandwiches, savoury and sweet scones and a variety of fresh pastries all perfectly presented. Reception team were fabulous, very informative and welcoming. Room was very traditional keeping in with the theme of Maften Hall. Food and drinks in the Conservatory Bar, staff were very welcoming and attentive. Food was slightly disappointing, looking a lot nicer than it tasted. After Dinner we then retreated back into robes for the spa, open until 10 pm for guests. Breakfast, this was held in the Library Restaurant area, a very luxurious setting. There was unlimited continental breakfast in the main area, with an extensive selection of fruits, cereals and juices. There was then a selection of cooked breakfasts available to order. Staff were all friendly, breakfast was nicely presented. Overall we had a lovely relaxing trip to Maften Hall, the only disappointing element would be the dinner served in the Conservatory Bar. However, despite this, we would still book again for another relaxing break.
