“Rest and Relaxation!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 May 2014

We spent the weekend at Beamish Hall as a re charge weekend. The hotel was very easy to find and quite hidden away from the hustle and bustle of traffic. We checked in and went straight to our room. We were a little bit disappointed at the size of our room but this was only because the last hotel we stayed in gave us a gigantic suite type room (too big really). We asked for an upgrade but there was a wedding party in and they they could only offer us a twin room which was on the side where the wedding was being held. We accepted our first room and it turned out to be very comfortable. The room was clean and neat, the view was over the car park but also with views of the vast countryside beyond. The bedding is a bit noisy, crispy but not uncomfortable. Nice firm bed and big pillows. Lovely soft white towels. We had our meals both nights in the Stables bar & restaurant. The food was so nice, really well presented on the plate. The food was nice and hot and you could tell it had been freshly made for you. The waiting staff were so polite and attentive. The bar area is a good size, the choice of beer is great if you are a beer drinker, not too expensive either. Stables brew their own beer too, they have a micro brewery on site which we forgot to look at, but my husband tried all of the beers on offer and there was not a bad one!!
There was a wedding taking place when we got there on the Friday, and two more weddings on the Saturday. Apart from seeing people arriving and having a peep at the brides, we were not bothered by the wedding parties at all, the weddings were at the opposite end of the hotel to where we stayed. We walked up to the entrance of the Beamish museum which was about 15 minutes walk away, the golf club is also en route, about 10 minutes walk. We will definately go back to Beamish Hall maybe in the summer, or even the autumn time.

Room Tip: Our room was 105, quite small and we had to move a chair from the table under the TV because we just...

We celebrated our 40th Wedding anniversary recently at Beamish Hall and we were very impressed. Everything was perfect. The service given by every member of staff was attentive but unobtrusive. The food was excellent and efficiently served. The room was excellent. The best hotel we've stayed at for a long time. There were 8 couples and all said what a great time they'd had.

Room Tip: some rooms were smaller than others but all well furnished and clean.

Visited here for afternoon tea for re second time.
Value-Good value at 2 for £20 but can't help thinking it could still be improved upon and is a 'weak link' having eaten meals and stayed here.
Service- One staff member only- she was very busy and left customers waiting whilst taking a phone call for a booking from someone with lots of questions. It meant she forgot that she was getting us additional water and we had to ask again. She was very apologetic. Because she must gave to 'travel' elsewhere for food ect it also meant there were Many times when there was simply no staff member around- took a while to organise the bill as she was away from the room for approx. 10 minutes. This felt a long time with a fractious baby! In regards
To our baby staff member was lovely and having checked
Beforehand was Very welcome. Food- bread slightly dry, scone was tasty But Slightly over cooked. Cakes, like last time
Were a let down.
Was actually Tempted To complain about the slab of dry fruit cake which would of only been rescued by custard! (Staff member was so Busy I didn't bother!) the cakes feel big, chunky, not in the least bit delicate or delicious.

Overall you get what you pay for but feel beamish hall should be producing something of better quality for the current price and should consider a second staff member or at least arrange easier access to required water/food ect to limit time away from the room to improve customer experience.

Visited here as part of a group-great company but the afternoon tea did not impress. The sandwiches were brought first, and the waitress then came with the hot water for tea, spilled some onto the vegetarian sandwich tray, took the tray way, replaced with a dry one, but the sandwiches were all wet and soggy, as were the crisps ! The other sandwiches were stale on the edges and so not appetising. We were put off eating, and all the vegetarian ones were cheese and mayonnaise, nothing special. The scones were lovely, but the meringue swans with cream instead appeared to have been made a while before as the meringue was very soggy and not tasty. Lumley castles was a much better offering.

This was an impulsive overnighter booked the night before. It's just down the road, but our first visit.
It's in a lovely setting and very peaceful. The food in the stables ( the adjoining restaurant/pub) is good,but not exceptional. The beer is good as it should be with a microbrewery on site.
We booked a deluxe double which was spacious and light, the fixtures and fittings are looking a little tired, a feeling of faded charm purveys. The magnificent setting was matched with the minimum standard, something seems to be missing.
The staff were attentive and pleasant, the breakfast was nice, though when we got sauce it was put on the plate by a member of staff from a bowl
Not a bad stay but in comparison to other best western 4 star stays not as good.
