“Comfortable rural retreat”
Reviewed 9 April 2012

Remotely located but well worth finding, The Doxford Hall Hotel is good value for money. The accommodation and the entire property were in xcellent decorative order. The restaurant was good both at dinner and breakfast. The staff were all efficient and welcoming. A special feature was the maze - don't miss it but allow some time to find your way out!
A few small details are short of a 5 star rating. There was no safe deposit box or minibar in the bedroom. Room 6 had no view and extremely loud music could be heard in our room from the nearby Spa for an hour from 17.30 which spoiled the otherwise peaceful, rural atmosphere

We stayed here after picking it pretty randomly from late rooms when looking for a last minute spa hotel for a short break and what a lucky choice it was! Lovely hotel in a great part of the world. The rooms are huge and have lovely solid wood furniture and a spa bath. The real selling point for us were the leisure facilities- we had a great time in the quiet pool, sauna and steam room. We also briefly popped in to the compact gym which again was quiet with great equipment. Dinner in the hotel restaurant was delicious.

We would highly recommend a stay here to anyone looking for a relaxing break away.

Whilst i have stayed at this Hotel and the last time being in August when my Daughter had her beautiful wedding here.
However today i wanted to write a review about the Amazing Sunday lunches we often enjoy here. ( Well i debated for a long time as it would be nice to keep it a hidden secret but thats just selfish :-)
Tables set out beautifully,crisp white table cloths and napkins,gleaming glasswear,service very attentive and helpful.
Choice of two or three course lunch.
I had a soup,was undecided as all dishes sounded good.
Roast pork with crackling, yorkshires, roasties,stuffing and veg and tasty gravy.
Dark chocolate torte.
All the food was delicious and presented well and portion sizes are most generous.
We had a choice of where we would like to take our Tea/Coffee and chocolate truffles which are included in the price.There are lots of rooms even the library where this can be served.
To sum up,top notch food, service and delighful surroundings at an exceptional price.

My husband and I stayed at the weekend. There was absolutely nothing to fault it. Excellent food, service and spotlessly clean. Will definitely stay again.

Just returned from a 2 night stay at Doxford Hall over the weekend for my sister's wedding. We stayed in the Tynemouth room and were surprised at how much space we had along with the size of the bed! We could easily have fit 4 people it was that huge! Loved the Molton Brown toiletries in the bathroom and the spa bath (although it took us a while to realise that the switch was behind the wardrobe to turn it on, I had to ask at reception as I thought it was broke). During what was a hectic weekend it was nice to retreat to the comfort of our room for a bit of relaxation. The bathrobes and slippers were also a nice touch which we used during our visits to the hotel pool. The hotel grounds are so peaceful and picturesque, it was lovely to go for a walk and explore and the perfect location for the wedding photos. We were lucky to have amazing weather over the weekend which just added to the whole experience. The staff at the hotel were very friendly and helpful. All in all we had a great weekend and only wished we could have stayed longer!

Having just read the last few reviews I felt I had to write a review myself. My husband and I and freinds have stayed here several times and most recent on Christmas day. W e have always had excellent service from all the staff, we have stayed in several different rooms and all have been super. The food we have had could not be faulted and we would reccommend this hotel to anyone. It is well worth the money, that's why we keep going back.
