Two Night Break

roberts273, Glasgow, United Kingdom
This was a meeting of 2 siblings and their spouses. One travelled from North and the other from South. The hotel was excellent in every respect. From Restaurant to Housekeeping and Reception the staff went out of their way to be friendly and accommodating. We would definitely return when we again visit this part of England which is in itself a hidden gem with lots to do. Overall a fantastic stay.

Don't book room six...

paradoxxically, Kendal, United Kingdom
Booked for a two night bed and breakfast stay on a deal which made the visit significantly cheaper than the standard tariff. On arrival I was unable to get into the room until 1500 but the staff were happy to let me leave my luggage behind the reception desk whilst I headed out to explore. Room - On my return I was given the key to room six which I located just past the bar and between the spa entrance and restaurant. You immediately knew at that point that room six was not the room of choice for those of us who like a peaceful life. I worked out the bar immediately butted up against the wall the bed was situated on - and was sadly proved right around 2230 when the noise of scraping chairs, merry revellers and clinking bottles boomed through the aforementioned wall. By 2300 I was left with what sounded like bar staff clearing up - more dragged chairs and empties being disposed of - and resorted to ear plugs. The room was far too hot with even the window open and the duvet had to be stripped out of its cover and dumped on the chair. Factor in the spa crowd banging the door outside the room, along with water pipes that clunked and groaned as a nearby guest used their bath/shower and I was less than happy come the following morning. On mentioning the previous night's problems to reception I was told that bar staff would be informed but there were no other rooms as the hotel was full. That evening there was still the noise from the people in the bar - think chairs scraping along the floor, general noise from conversation and the ever present empty being dropped into a container. To be fair it sounded like less disruption from the bar staff as they cleared up but as I already had my ear plugs in I can't unequivocally comment if it was less or not. At checkout I again mentioned the level of intrusive noise from the bar, spa users and those incessantly clanking water pipes but was more or less blanked by the receptionist who promised to 'inform management' and, should I choose to stay again, I'd have my preference to never stay again in room six in my notes... Food - Dinner Being a vegetarian in these places can often make you feel like some second-class citizen who should be grateful for any kind of recognition that acknowledges your choice not to eat meat - albeit the bolted on addition to most menus of some kind of tokenistic veggie lasagne. Scanning the menu invoked the usual feelings of disappointment at the liberal, somehow trendy use of goats cheese (I hate it) as if it was some kind of universal vegetarian panacea or food of the herbivorous gods. Again, in the interests of fairness the duty manager did her very best to provide options in a calm and patient way that made me feel less like a foodie pariah. Cutting a long story short the options were narrowed down to a plate of wild mushroom and tomato risotto, or three open topped ravioli with goats curd (even grimmer than goats cheese), ratatouille and a poached egg for toppings - which I worked out as around £7 per ravioli. I chose the risotto (obviously given my distaste for all things goatish) and it was very tasty, filling and felt like reasonable value. The restaurant itself was nicely decorated and the covers weren't so close you had no choice but to listen to the adjacent table discussing their joy at not being given room six! Food - Breakfast More familiar territory at breakfast for a veggie. Lots of fresh fruit, yogurt, cereals etc along with a full English vegetarian option which consisted of a choice of eggs, veggie sausages, field mushroom, baked beans, hash brown or fried bread. Sadly the sausage was overcooked and the eggs a trifle overscrambled but the overall taste and size of portion was good. Throw in plenty of toast, a lovely decaff coffee and virtually no one up at 0730 and I'd say the best way to stay would be as a b and b guest rather than dinner/b and b. All in all - Lovely part of the country. Excellent setting for the hotel which was clean with friendly staff, good parking and reasonable value on a deal - but avoid room six and think long and hard if you want to eat there and you're a vegetarian who isn't keen on the now ubiquitous, all conquering dairy by-product of goats. Would I stay again? I would if the room was quieter and there was a deal floating around - I just wouldn't have dinner unless the menu has something of a sea change or I learned to embrace goats cheese...

A great Saturday night

mjt73337, Newcastle upon Tyne, United Kingdom
On arrival and at departure the desk staff were warm, friendly and very professional, making sure that we felt very welcome. We had a 7:00 dinner, and ate some really great food - from starter to dessert it was faultless, and the bisque was brilliant. The staff in the restaurant were great - knowledgeable about the food and wine menu, and attentive without being too attentive. All in all, we had a fantastic time, and look forward to coming back.

Pre-booking mis-information led to hugely disappointing dinner

Patchou1i, Scotland, United Kingdom
Planned for birthday meal and overnight stay; searched internet for suitable, relaxing venue with vegetarian options. Checking Doxford hall menus online showed one vegetarian option only, hence I phoned before booking to check if there was more than one meal choice for vegetarians. I was told that, yes, there was a separate menu for vegetarians available. Therefore, I went ahead and booked... However, when we arrived in the hotel restaurant, we were told by the staff, that there was no separate menu, and never had been a separate vegetarian menu available. The meal that was supposed to be a birthday celebration turned out to be hugely disappointing. Thankfully, the hotel and bedroom were satisfactory. Most of the staff were helpful and welcoming. Choice of several sitting rooms, including well-stocked library. Bedrooms spacious and generally comfortable. Tea and coffee making facilities included a range of herbal teas. Breakfast was buffet style with good range of fresh fruit and cereals; as well as cooked item choices to order. Enjoyed cafetiere of coffee. Hotel grounds and gardens kept well tended. Enjoyed the yew maze and exploring around the various parts of the garden. Nice countryside walks around the hotel, including to nearby Preston tower. Swimming pool and spa facilities at the hotel, but we did not use them, instead, opted to take advantage of the sunny weather. After discussing our frustration regarding dinner menu with the reception staff, we were given an apology and told that they plan to make more vegetarian options available in the future....

Afternoon Tea at Doxford Hall

David F,
Set in rural Northumberland Doxford Hall is a unique, small, well run 5 star country hotel. With friends we made a reservation to try afternoon tea. On arrival we were shown into the Georgian Room which was tastefully decorated to match that of the house. The staff were very attentive and were happy to discuss the food with us and taking note of any allergies we might have. We were rewarded with freshly made finger sandwiches, scones and a good selection of cakes and trifle. We were allowed to relax in the room and it felt very homely. The hotel grounds are formally set out and they have several walks marked out for the more adventurous.
