            The setting is beautiful and the surroundings are peaceful, quiet and very green and yet it is not too far from the main city of Newcastle (great shops) and a fabulous stepping stone to Scotland. The rooms are very good size, and as a single traveller I felt neither "hidden" in a lesser room nor ripped off by the price I paid. The facilities were excellent, the pool is a great size and the glass roof makes it feel very light and airy.

            There was a very friendly and relaxed attitude and all staff were very helpfull and seemed to knowledgeable about thier jobs.

            great swimming pool. friendly and helpful staff. room service

            I didn't like the 'courtesy' call only fifteen minutes past 11, asking us to leave. call it something else, not a courtesy call.I was disappointed by the breakfast - hot food hard and overcooked. I arrived alone, with young baby and baggage; someone on hand to open the door would have been appreciated.

            The hotel was clean, the staff very pleasant at all times. The facilities were very flexible for my requirements and I would have no hesitation in recommending Matfen.

            Spa and leisure facilities excellent. Although I dont play the golf course looked lovely. Keepers lodge on site for a less expensive meal or lots of good pub food within 3 miles. The room was spacious and well decorated, and the bed was very comfortable. The staff were friendly and accommodating. Cooked breakfast waitress served and good quality.

            Peaceful & tranquil location. Friendly, helpful and competent staff. Beautifully maintained interior and grounds. Both dinner (room service) and breakfast were lovely. I wish I could have stayed more than one night - I'll definitely be back though!!

            The hotel is in a beautiful location, in lovely grounds and easily accessible from city and countryside. The rooms were spacious, comfortable and well equipped. Bonus to have fridge in the room, with bottles of water. Lovely big towels .Breakfast was really good. In the evening we ate at the Keepers Lodge , which was quick and reasonably priced. Our teenagers enoyed the pool and leisure activites. We got a great deal through Booked.net which made it excellent value for a high quality hotel.

            Very narrow bath! Walks leaflet had poor directions- got lost and walked for miles!!

            I like the beautiful surroundings and the character of the hotel.It looked very grand.It was situated on a golf course and there was a sense of spaciousness.There was a restaurant called The Keepers Lodge by the side of the golf course which was very good.They also have a kids menu.We had a wonderful meal there.They have a mini show case in the lobby which had some gifts and accessories for sales which we thought were at a very reasonable price.Do take a walk around the hotel and surroundings and visit the many wonderfully decorated rooms.I Will definitely go back again if there is a chance.

            I thought the rooms and swimming pool were a bit on the small side.Other than that I could not find any other fault.

            We booked a late deal - On arrival we were offered an upgrade to a double - which we accepted - staff couldn't be more pleasant/helpful - Two main places to eat with plenty of choices - more formal at the hotel or informal at the keepers lodge - but both had a good selection and the food was superb -The hotel is situated in the heart of rural Northumberland in a beautiful setting - overall an extremely pleasant stay and would definitely recommend to others -

            Comfortable, clean and excellent staff.

            Parking for motorcycle was uneven and loose ground.

            We had a fabulous room in the original part of the hotel. Staff were very helpful and frienly. Bed was extremely large, and very comfortable.

            A warm welcome, stunning views and relaxing experience. The history of the hall was fascinating, and the gardens provided a peaceful place to retreat to for some peace and quiet. Dinning in the library was a pleasure, service good and food delicious, We shall most certainly be back.

            Our stay wasn't long enough to enjoy the spa experience.

            Its quiet and peaceful in gorgeous grounds

            I think for business people like me its a bit pricey - be good if I could come to arrangement with them for 3 nigths a month
