Grounds - deer park plus sheep and various ducks on lake and roaming in the grounds.
Accomodation- various grades of rooms - we enjoyed a heavy draped room overlooking the deer park. Smart,warm and clean. Serviced daily.
Beautiful public rooms - dining in the Library, Garden Room and Brasserie. Relaxing in Lounge.
Food - small quality menu with sizable portions, well cooked and presented. Discrete but attentive service. Large breakfast selection well cooked. Dissapointed with Afternoon Tea - catering butter pats supplied (unlike shaped pats we had at other times) and a cake selection of a marble sponge cake, coconut and lemon cake and chocolate brownie cake. Variation required such as pastries or eclair

Stayed at the whitworth hall hotel twice in 2 weeks, due to previously purchasing 2 vouchers from KGB that were about to expire, and thought we'd better get used :) The hotel was easier to find than I thought it might be, though we arrived in the dark, and the sign pointing to the hotel is quite easy to miss. First impressions definitely do not disappoint- the drive and approach to the hotel is beautiful. We saw deer and rabbits around as we parked the car. The Hotel looked stunning lit up at night.
Beautiful reception area, with decor a mix of original features of this beautiful building and contemporary style. Lovely friendly and helpful lady on reception. Our room was newly renovated, and identical to the one shown on the hotels website. We ate in the restaurant the first night, service excellent, food excellent. The staff are all wonderful, helpful and friendly. We were only 5 miles from Durham, with it's Cathedral and great choice of shops. My daughter loved feeding the deer at the Hotel. (Deer food is available at reception) Had a wonderful walk around the Hotel grounds and Gardens. Will definitely return here, and definitely recommend.

Stayed in a modern room with king size bed. All expectations of quality,comfort,cleanliness and service were either met or exceeded. Enjoyed our
Dinner and breakfast experience. Friendly smart staff. Very small negative observation was that the public areas were not very warm. Enjoyed stay very much and hope to visit again later in the year and have a walk in the deer park.

Stayed here on a KGB deal. The room was delightful, clean and well serviced. The staff in reception, at breakfast and for dinner were helpful, enthusiastic and could not do enough. The restaurant staff were exceptionally helpful! We ate in the Library restaurant but from the Brasserie menu! which is cheaper. They do a special which was first class. The hotel is a former country house and set in pleasant grounds with a lot of deer close by. Although the grounds were soggy and in winter mode it is a very nice walk to go around the hotel and see the grounds and local church [sadly locked these days]. The steak for one evening meal was perfectly cooked and presented. The choices at breakfast were excellent and enjoyable. Hope to come again soon as it is so convenient for Durham and the National Railway museum at Shildon.

Well done, staff and Best Western!!
