“Perfect wedding venue”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 August 2014

On Saturday 2nd August 2014 I was a guest at a wedding and the venue was Headlam Hall Hotel and Spa. I have been to many weddings at various hotels and I could not praise this high enough. A lady organiser was in attendance very discretely at all times and she really did know her role.
Everything ran so smoothly, it was a very relaxed atmosphere and very professional. The decor was beautiful, the food and service was excellent in quality and presentation. Well done to all staff.
The only minus side was the price of drinks during breaks between the celebration. I know most hotels are higher in price just be ready for this.

This is one of those rare hotels where everything seems to fall into place. Obviously staying in a property of such an age imposes some restrictions on the room sizes and layout, especially in the main house, but even this just adds to the charm of the place.
The staff are exceptionally helpful and knowledgeable.
The restaurant is outstanding and the hotel offers all the facilities one would expect of a superior country house hotel.
The gardens are beautiful and well kept and given the weather during our stay offered a perfect retreat from our busy schedule.
Just two points that need consideration if you are thinking of staying here; firstly the hotel really is quite a distance from anywhere - which is a plus if you are looking for peace and quiet as we were, secondly because of the beauty of the place and the facilities on offer it seems to be very popular for weddings. This makes the hotel very busy at times, although the level of service we received did not suffer as a result.
We are already planning a return visit.

About 60 of us stayed for four nights on a classic car tour of the North East. Four of us had previously visited on a recce (when we made the arrangements for dinner, bed and breakfast for our tour) and enjoyed that visit . The accommodation on the tour was of a very high standard (especially bearing in mind the numbers attending) and the staff went out of their way to ensure that we were well looked after. The spa was a popular addition with many enjoying the facilities and some took advantage of the golf course. We were variously accommodated in the main house and annexes. No complaints. We would all be happy to return.

A lovely hotel, with great rooms (in the main house), lots of charm and a wonderful garden, in a beautiful part of the country. The staff are very friendly and very helpful. Great food, well cooked and lots of it!

Room Tip: Main house, not in the extension

Stayed here last Friday for a surprise birthday treat for the wife.

The hotel and the grounds were lovely, managing to keep the 'old fashioned' feel but offering all the modern luxuries.

We stayed in a Spa deluxe room which was spotless, with a balcony overlooking the hotel grounds. The Spa was lovely and the food was amazing.

I would definitely return here. The staff were all friendly and nothing seemed too much.

This stay at the beginning of July was for my birthday. We have visited Headlam Hall a few times over the previous 19 years, though not for a while now, it hasn't lost any of its charm or magic. I don't know how they manage to get such lovely staff, always wanting to serve & please without being obsequious. The atmosphere at the Hotel is lovely & there is lots of attention to detail, like the smell of fresh lilies as soon as you enter. This combined with the beautiful hall & grounds (& the spa) make for a fabulous stay.
We had a room in the main hall & it was absolutely beautiful. Great addition of glossy mags & ground coffee with a cafetiere, fresh milk on request!
We have not been since the spa was completed & it is wonderful, spotlessly clean with high quality fittings. A very ingenious sunbathing terrace is a heavenly spot in good weather, listening to the cooling tinkle of the nearby fountain.
Dinner was extremely good, my husband's venison starter was one of the best things he's ever had he said!
If you are looking for a treat stay then I think that this is the place!
