It's hard to imagine a better evening than that we recently spent at Matfen Hall. The Hall itself is mightily impressive. The view from the front of the hotel across the beautifully manicured and landscaped golf course with its magnificent specimen trees is wonderful - especially when the sun is going down and the shadows lengthen across the lakes and lovely little bridges. As you enter the Hall you really feel like you're going somewhere special and once you get inside it doesn't disappoint. The Conservatory is relaxed, light and airy, a perfect place to take in those evocative views and ideal for pre-dinner drinks. We'd been a bit concerned that the hotel's much vaunted Library restaurant might be a bit overly formal and stuffy but we couldn't have been further from the mark. It's certainly grand in the majestically authentic way that only old stately halls can be, with its enormously high ceilings, huge full length windows and its lavishly leather book-lined walls - but the staff are warm, friendly, welcoming and helpful. They made us feel at home from the minute we set foot in the place and were brilliant throughout - attentive but not in your face and more than happy to chat if you wanted. The food was every bit as good as we'd hoped for - expensive but very tasty. We were given a little cray fish sushi as a gratis appetiser and while sushi is not really my thing I found it to be delicious. Our starters, main courses and wine were all equally excellent. We noticed that most of the other diners (about 20 or so) all seemed to be thoroughly enjoying their meals too. After our meal we took our drinks into the Drawing Room, sat by the roaring open fire and leafed through a big and interesting Blackett family album about the opening and development of the hotel. When we left the hotel the sky was full of stars - the hotel is not quite in the dark sky area of Kielder but it's more than far enough from the City lights to make for a marvellous starry finale to a wonderful night.

Had a wonderful night in the hotel, used the pool in the morning and was pleased with that too. Corridors where a little dirty though for a 4 star hotel. Apart from it was amazing. Will be going back at some point.

We cannot speak too highly of this hotel. We stayed for the first time as wedding guests in May and have now been back to stay on three occasions and looking forward to our next visit.
The location is spectacular in the heart of the Northumberland countryside.
The staff are friendly and very helpful.
Rooms well appointed with safe,fridge and robes.
Food is excellent both in the Library restaurant and the conservatory
Cannot think of anything negative to say about Matfen Hall

Second visit this year, not disappointed. From the moment we arrived to our departure we were looked after so well by all the staff at Matfen Hall.
The awards the hotel have won for the 'Library Restaurant' are thoroughly deserved. Delicious food, beautifully presented.
Rooms very comfortable (ours was a Classic room, booked as a deal through 'Secret Escapes').well appointed and spotless.
Looking forward to going again in 2014.

Room Tip: We were in room 49, spacious, quiet - overlooked churchyard.

After a visit with friends around 9 months ago, my wife and I visited for four days to celebrate our wedding anniversary. We enjoyed our first visit but this was even better. All the food was excellent. Service by everyone could not be faulted. Christmas decorations we're ing put up and they looked spectacular. OK it is not cheap but if you want to spoil anyone special, then this is just the place to do it.y

Room Tip: Every room looks good.
