My wife and I stayed here on Sunday night, and had a very enjoyable stay. My wife got it as a deal from her work, which included, bed, breakfast and evening meal, use of the spa facilities, and a one hour treatment each. We both had a lovely relaxing stay, which was just what we wanted. The treatments we had...

2 friends that decided to 'get away from it all' for the night. It's a perfect place to do just that with stunning surroundings. Gorgeous hotel with a lovely room and super friendly staff.

This is one of the most relaxing breaks we have experienced. From our arrival to departure we were more than looked after by the lovely staff. I can honestly say every member of the staff team were genuinely helpful. The food was outstanding! So much so we ate here two nights. The breakfast was delicious. The spa facilities were relaxing...

Stayed here from the 12th-14th March for a couple of days for my boyfriends birthday. Absolutely exceptional, I could not fault anything about it apart from a small noise complaint that was addressed on our last night. From check in to check out it has been a wonderful stay. Special mention to Carter who served us in the conservatory, James...

As part of a road trip we stayed overnight here and frankly could have stayed for much longer had circumstances allowed. From the moment we arrived at check-in at reception to checking out the following morning, our short stay was just fabulous. Our room was spotless and fully-equipped with TV, fridge, safe etc., and a delightfully comfortable bed! We ate...

Wow! Actually Wow! Beautiful surroundings, grand building! Thinking about the stories the building could tell...... Staff: wonderfully friendly Food: we just ate dinner, there is a full experience to enjoy, start in a grand room with complementary nibbles, peruse the menu with a glass of something, and then order, move through to the Library to eat. The food is actually...

Visited Matfen Hall hotel as a birthday treat with my husband, it was the first time either of us had been but I'd definitely stay again. Check in was quick and we were well informed on the location of restaurants, bar, spa and bedroom and given plenty information. Our room was lovely, clean spacious and comfortable with a large bathroom...

It was a treat for my husband and I, unfortunately I made the mistake of upgrading to a principle room which in my opinion is not worth the money. The room was large and it was nice to have somewhere comfortable to sit to sit, there was a lovley view of the golf course and the bathroom was very nice...

Thank you for taking the time to post your review on Trip Advisor, as you’d alluded to in our previous communication. Once again, I’m saddened that some aspects of your stay have not lived up to your expectations, and I’m also saddened that we weren’t given the opportunity to rectify these issues during your stay.
