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.
