“Very pleasant for a shot break”
Reviewed 2 August 2014

I stopped here earlier this week for a couple of nights with my teenage son as a treat, having booked and paid a bargain price with 'secret Escapes'. Dinner B&B with a bottle of wine each night for £109 per room per night! This represented excellent value for money.
The approach to the hotel was lovely with nice grounds and the front of the hotel itself is beautiful- a Jacobean building that is very striking.
The check in was a disaster and took 2 hours to finally get a room - This was down to an issue with the laundry and not the hotel directly. Eventually we were allocated a different room as ours was still not ready. The one we got was very nice with a fabulous bathroom with jacuzzi bath and huge massage shower! as well as all the facilities you would expect. Wifi was a complete no go in our room as it was on the lowest floor as was mobile phone signal until you got outside. Not the end of the world though.
I found most of the staff to be very helpful and friendly, with only the odd exception they really did seem to earn their wages! being so busy with the hotel fully booked..
We made good use of the spa - with lovely pool, jacuzzi, steam room and sauna and even though it was school holidays it wasnt too busy if you went in around tea time.
Dinner was nice the first night but far from outstanding with me choosing the pork belly (skin all flabby and would have been so much nicer if it had been crispy) vege limited and only after did i realise that you had to order that as an extra! There were quite a few items on the menu that were supplemented.
the second night however was much nicer with a delicious beef dish. A bottle of wine was included in my package each night which reduced the choice however to either 'red or white' - still if was a freebie and I had a bottle of each over the two nights, both of which were actually very palatable.
All in all the Redworth Hall Hotel is really well placed to explore a wide variety of places (we visited Beamish) just a short drive away and a real must!
It is a shame that with such a beautiful building you dont really get to do much in the old part as most of the actual hotel is build on at the back. It is very nice though.
The car parking does get very busy at times as it is shared with the spa (also open to non residents)
I would definately stay here again if I was able to find such a good offer although because of these offers it does get very busy, especially at mealtimes, with the staff looking like they are being really stretched.
I would choose somewhere a lot more intimate and less busy if I were to spend the actual amount that it should have cost.

Room Tip: I would pay the little bit extra and get a superior room - one in the old part of the hotel would be...

Nice looking hotel with large grounds and large car park (but this is for spa as well so gets busy). On the main road but be careful as post code led us down a side road into nowhere. Deal we had was for 3 course meal with wine but staff were accommodating and helpful in us getting full value. Room comfortable but dark and was clean and fairly big. Poor mobile reception around the hotel so many people went to the front outside. Seems to host quite a few corporate functions, a prom and is also a wedding venue. Small bar, which we could not get to when prom was on until they all went to their function room. Prices not cheap but I suppose no more expensive than the competition. Pleasant venue handily placed for gorgeous countryside and the Pennines.

Room Tip: The hotel has an odd layout so try to make sure your room is on a higher level (don't go by room...

On our way down into Yorkshire for a few days break, and this seemed an ideal spot to break the journey, and so it proved. We found it easily, check in was efficient and friendly, and the room was excellent, even if it seemed a long way into the hotel, with 2 lift journeys! The bathroom was fantastic with a magnificent shower, which would blast anything out of tired pores! The restaurant was busy, as it should be on a Saturday, and the food was very good, though not exceptional. Staff were helpful and courteous throughout, and were a well organised team. It was very quiet and peaceful, and we would visit again.

Booked through Secret Escapes, Redworth Hall offered a chance to get a short break in a quiet location. The hotel looks fantastic on arrival up the long drive and while the room perhaps don't quite live up to the grandeur of the outside, ours was clean and comfortable for a one-night stay. It didn't have all the Sky channels as had been suggested, with an issue over tuning.

We made use of the gym facilities (standard for a hotel) and also had dinner and breakfast as part of our deal. The evening meal was nice, with a variable menu (be warned you will have to pay extra for some selections, meat lovers). Breakfast offered even more choices, not sure to be honest that I didn't try every option, either!

Pleasant stay at a discounted deal, which is why it gets four stars on this review. Perhaps not quite worth all the pennies if you're paying full price.

We purchased a Secret Escapes deal of dinner, bed, breakfast and a bottle of house wine at Redworth Hall Hotel from Secret Escapes, after checking the photographs and reading the hotel description.

On checking into our room - 328 - we were very disappointed. The room was shabby, drab and dismal. Maintenance/housekeeping was lacking, ie, one double glazed panel was blown, the safety catch on another was broken, net curtains weren't hung properly, the valance was ill-fitted, floor hadn't been vacuumed, inside wardrobe was dusty, back of bathroom door was filthy, bath and surround didn't look clean, around taps was dirty. Corridor windows were dirty and drapes dusty. Many light shades were at haphazard angles, one was missing altogether with the bare bulb showing. There were glasses on various surfaces in the corridor. The whole hotel looks unloved.

I did discuss our concerns with a duty manager but wasted my time as he was adamant the room was acceptable, although he didn't trouble to come and look at the room.

Dinner was acceptable, however, breakfast was poor with guests queuing a long time for the hot buffet selection when first the eggs ran out, then the mushrooms, etc, etc.

The redeeming feature of the hotel was the waiting on/bar staff who were unfailingly friendly, smiling and efficient.

If you do plan on visiting Redworth Hall we suggest you check and check again as to exactly which room you are likely to be allocated as chances are you won't be allocated a refurbished room as shown on Secret Escapes web page.

I am sorry you didn't enjoy your time here. All of our rooms are a little different, and some have been newly refurbished where as others are still more traditional. However, all of our bedrooms should be clean and I am sorry you didn't find yours as it should have been. I have spoken to our Houskeeping Manager regarding your comments, as I do take cleanliness very seriously.

Booked hotel as local to meeting next day and although room rate high outlook good and free wifi offered which a must on a business trip. Overall disappointed, bar food average but pricey, and even though no phone signal in hotel bar area which can happen wifi limited and keeps dropping out. Had to re login 5 times with an hour. TV in room back to the eighties with signal, BBC, itv, C4 and C5 only channels working, all others no signal. Spa good and prob good for a mini break but not a business drop off, keep away.

I am sorry to read your thoughts on your stay. Unfortunately, the whole village of Redworth does struggle with mobile phone signal. As we understand the importance of wi-fi for all of our guests, we do have boosters through out the hotel to try and improve the signal strength. I can only apologise you did not find this adequate for yourself.
