Return visit to Matfen

ianEdinburgh, Edinburgh, United Kingdom
It's around 3 years since we visited so felt it was around time for another 3 days break at Matfen. As last time, we took one of the larger rooms overlooking the garden and it was spacious and comfortable. As I said last time, I always like the 2 AA Rosette level for dinner as you are assured good quality food without a lot of the pretentousness you find in some hotels. Dinner was relaxed and enjoyable. Obviously Matfen is a country house hotel so there is a traditionality about it but not so much that it feels artificial and the whole ambiance in the hotel is very relaxed. Though we were in a different room this time, again I found the beds getting a little tired (springs making a noise when I turned) and I did not sleep very well on all nights so perhaps that is something worth looking at. I still love the hotel and it would not put me off going back again.

Paul R,
After a hectic August we were looking forward to a relaxing break. We found it at Matfen hall. The staff were very friendly and helpful, room and food were great and the spa and golf were of the same high standard. We have been before and will be going again.

My wife & I recently spent 3 nights at the country based Matfen Hall near Newcastle. We found it so peaceful & tranquil, just the holiday we were looking forward to. There is everything you wish for at Matfen with a splendid leisure spa centre with pool, 27 hole golf course. par 3 golf course & great practice facilities & three different restaurants all serving differently priced menus which all turned out to be very tasty & of good quality & reasonably priced. Also within a mile there is another super Pub restaurant The Robin Hood which also proved to be good quality & fairly priced. The rooms at Matfen Hall were very up to date, very clean & had both a bath & separate shower unit which is refreshing. We can't wait to pay another visit there to again enjoy the quietness of the countryside setting & the various walks which we thoroughly enjoyed. Well worth treating yourself to visit to Matfen Hall with its historical venue.

Wedding bliss

The hall were the ceremony was conducted oozed history as did the rest of the hotel, you know your somewhere special when the staff wear gloves to serve you breakfast well to all the staff at Maften hall.

Great views

Never been to Matfen Hall before, loved the old style hall and renovations. The lunch and the service in the Library room was first class. We returned for tea later in the afternoon which was also excellent. I hope to revisit again in the future.
