“What a fabulous find!”
Reviewed 15 July 2014

My husband and I stayed here recently on a Living Social deal and couldn't fault anything about the place. We upgraded to a superior room, which was very spacious and beautifully appointed, with views over the deer park. The setting is so peaceful and relaxing. The public rooms are lovely and both the dinner and breakfast were excellent ... we were particularly impressed by the presentation of the food. The bottle of red wine that we bought to accompany our dinner was excellent and very reasonably priced. I would particularly like to mention 'Lal' who served us in the Library Restaurant. It was a pleasure to meet him and he, along with the rest of the staff we encountered, are a credit to the hotel. We very much hope to return!

Booked this hotel on a living social deal, and throughly enjoyed it the hotel and surroundings are beautiful with plenty of history. We had a lovely room, it had everything we needed . The food in the library restaurant was lovely and plentiful at both dinner and breakfast. The staff did a lovely job and all of them were pleasant and attentive.

We will definately stay here again in the future :)

The bedrooms are very spacious, comfortable beds, tastefully decorated. The breakfast was served in the library room or in a beautiful orangery on the front of the hotel. The hotel has large well kept gardens and patios perfect for a relaxing drink. The hotel is set in a country park full of deer which you can walk amongst and feed. We would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Rooms at the front of the hotel will have an amazing view of the deer in the country park.

Purchases a living social deal for one night stay for 2 with evening meal and breakfast. Only live about 45 mins away but when I seen the reviews I couldn't resist. Me and my mum were not disappointed. Thankyou to all the staff at Whitworth Hall for making our weekend so enjoyable. Perfect location, very relaxing, great accommodation, staff very welcoming and helpful, food fantastic. I do hope the Walled Gardens get reopened very soon. I will be booking again with my daughter.

We have just returned from a perfect stay at this hotel, having purchased a Living Social deal for the bargain price of £80.00 for bed, breakfast and two course evening meal for my husband and I. It is set amongst a beautiful deer park which we fed, immaculate grounds and a lake. Staff are very friendly and professional. Room was lovely, very quiet at the side of the house. Food is outstanding, especially dinner, congrats to the chef. Looking forward to returning.

I was here yesterday enjoying a pot of tea outside in the glorious sunshine.

This place is amazing. There are deer wandering around, I spent a while just watching them. It is such a peaceful and beautiful place...and so near Durham City Centre. If you haven't been, just go...you wont be disappointed.

Visited Whitworth hall for a wedding the other week. The place itself is very nice both inside and out. All the staff were friendly and all in all a really good day. Drinks are a bit pricey but what you expect when you are somehwere like this.
