Afternoon tea treat. 🍸🍾☕🍰

holiday032, northumberland
I bought a gift voucher for afternoon tea for my husband's 50th birthday and we all really enjoyed our afternoon.A good selection of teas / beautiful cakes the scones were lovely and fresh. The sandwiches were really nice too. A beautiful building with so much history made it that extra bit special.

Matfen Hall, Had a Ball!

Irenko862, Harrogate, United Kingdom
As an ex Front of House Manager I'm always on the look out as soon as I enter any hotel. Reception team attentive and welcoming; the rooms are nice and large as is the bathroom and I had the added surprise of a lovely little terrace outside - shame I was there on a freezing cold day but can imagine that it's really rather lovely in summer.Breakfast is very good, the staff were a little slow on clearing tables which was my only criticism. I treated myself to a massage in the spa - the girl was excellent and I left feeling fabulous. Would have loved to have stayed over the Christmas period but I can imagine that it's equally as beautiful in summer.

New Year to Remember

Hazel52Falkirk, Falkirk
Just back from a 2 night stay over New Year with a party of friends and had a really lovely time. Have visited this Hotel before but not for new years and they have upgraded and extended since our last visit. The location is beautiful, but the facilities also make this place really special - lovely spa and pool and gorgeous golf course with views across the valley. It has a really interesting history too and I would highly recommended it to families or couples. You are only 2 minutes walk away from Matfen village with it's quaint wee Pub - the Black Bull - and some really lovely walks round the Golf Course or country lanes. Loads of places to visit nearby as well and the "Go Ape" visitor attraction set in the woods is also only a 5 minute walk away. Staff could not have been more helpful and the New Year Gala Dinner and Fireworks really made this a special Weekend. Food was really good as well. We will be back!

Happy new year stay

GS1706, Holmfirth, United Kingdom
In our effort to celebrate new year at a different hotel each year we and 2 friends booked the new year package at Matfen Hall which is set in some impressive Northumberland countryside and next to the small village. Excellent spa, golf and dinning along with details of walks supplied by the hotel all starting and ending there.Staff were professional and very helpful. We would return in the summer to enjoy more walks and see some of the local villages. Not too far from Hadrian's Wall or the coast.

Lunch in The library

Matfen Hall is absolutely stunning in terms of it's views and appearance. Unfortunately, I have to admit the place has potential but just lacks attention to detail. The service was poor and the food average. Sorry to say I will not be recommending to friends.
