What a lovely luxurious experience.

lynnem672, Shiremoor, United Kingdom
From walking into the front door,of this lovely country house hotel, your every need is catered for. After we checked in we headed to the pool and sauna suite. If you are feeling brave you can refresh yourself with the on tap ice, a bucket shower or a conventional shower. I opted to use the shower on warm. I’m a whimp. Our room was enormous, beautifully furnished, and overlooked the golf course. Our evening meal was delicious and the service attentive but not overbearing. Breakfast was perfect. There were a lot of steps up to the room but the staff were very willing to carry the cases if you needed them to do that. Well done Matfen Hall.

Relaxing birthday retreat

Tori_Lou_NE, County Durham, United Kingdom
Husband booked us a spa break to Matfen to celebrate my birthday and I couldn't have had a better day. We had thirty minute treatments booked for 3pm and arrived at the hotel around lunchtime. Our room wasn't ready for us (we didn't expect it to be as check in wasn't until 2) however the Trainee Manager checked us in, promptly and with friendly efficiency. She provided us with robes and slippers directing us to the spa and pool to relax and enjoy our stay without further delay. The pool area and changing rooms were immaculate, the treatments were superb and the staff so polite and kind. Drinks are allowed at poolside and the staff are more than happy to bring these to you while you relax on loungers. The spa held a jacuzzi, pool, aromatherapy room, sauna and steam room, as well as, a separate area for treatments which held a relaxation room for before and after your treatment. The library restaurant and fitness centre were undergoing a refurbishment while we were at Matfen but you would never know, no noise, no mess and even less Interruption for the guests. Due to the library restaurant being refurbished we had our evening meal within the Conservatory bar which was small and friendly. Once again the staff were amazing, friendly and helpful. The food was gorgeous, portion size very fair and presentation superb. The drinks selection was great San Miguel on draught and cocktails freshly made, usual hotel prices for both food and drink. The room was gorgeous, cosy and bed so comfortable. Breakfast served between 7 & 10 in the Drawing Room, plenty of choices for either a cooked or continental breakfast. Waiter service for hot food and drinks. Toast delivered to order. Check out not until 11am so plenty of time for a relaxing morning with a lie in as well and even allowing additional access to the hotel facilities until 4pm. Overall, a brilliant stay and would definitely not hesitate to book again.

Amazing afternoon tea

donnag40, Hexham, United Kingdom
Yesterday my mam and I went for afternoon tea which was a Xmas present for myself. From walking in to leaving we couldn't fault anything Milton the extremely friendly waiter couldn't be more helpful he is a credit to the place. We will definitely return been lots of times before. While leaving we went to the spa for information on a spa day looking forward to our next visit

Sunday night treat

northerntribe, Northumberland
We stayed one night with friends at Matfen Hall. The bedrooms were delightful with wonderful views of the beautiful Northumbrian countryside. We ate in the library restaurant and had a superb meal. The staff were friendly and very helpful. I would definitely recommend!

Very pleasant shirt stay

Kai I, Edinburgh, United Kingdom
Ideal as a relaxing short break. We enjoyed it very much and wish we could stay another night. The facilities are excellent as is the setting, service and especially the food. The Northumbrian Breakfast was a first for me and very good without being overwhelming. It's also very close to Newcastle and many other places to spends time.
