            Location and atmoshere in the hotel.

            Spa and or sports facilities would be an asset.

            Comfortable & clean, quiet and attractive location.

            Decor over the top and not to our taste. Continental breakfast options limited.

          • Group of friends
            5.0

            The grounds were absolutely beautiful and well maintained. The communal areas were very well presented. The staff were very polite and delivered excellent customer service.

            Our hotel room was very shabby and was very badly presented. The window was painted shut. The carpet was dirty. Our mattress smelt stale. We and fellow guests were freezing cold during the night. The bed covers were old and thread bare. There were stains down the wall paper and the pictures on the wall were once damp and showed mould on them. Not what you would expect for such a expensive room rate!

            We loved the quiet setting of the hotel within a deer park and set in the middle of rolling countryside. We had a lovely view over the park and the only disturbing noise (if you could call it that) was the birds singing at 4.30am!

            There was really nothing we didn't like. The only criticism would be that the decor is a little tired and the very modern looking reception area, which would be well placed in a new hotel, is not in keeping with the character of the hotel.

            Good atmosphere and ambience

            Restaurant rather expensive - therefore had dinner in the bar

            Breakfast included, nice country location

            Some decor getting tatty

            The superior room was just lovely, the grounds are gorgeous and the staff were very helpful

          • Older travelers
            9.2

            Room was clean and warm, staff were friendly and efficient. The menu was excellent. We wanted somewhere quiet and relaxing to tour Northumberland, so didn't need a pool, spa or gym. This was ideal

          • Older travelers
            9.2

            Loved everything about it. Superb location, beautiful quiet room, lovely grounds to walk in, a nursery to buy cottage plants and bulbs, friendly, helpful and knowledgeable staff, nothing too much trouble. Dinner was a little pricey but in surroundings like these, with a service to match, was to be expected

          • Single

            Comfortable room, but disappointingly noisy when wedding guests went back to their rooms.

            Veneer surfaces of the furniture was lifting in the room, reducing the feeling of quality premises. No chocolate for late night beverages in the room.

          • Older travelers

            It is an old country house set in a deer park with a lake adjacent. Compared to many hotels it was an arrival in paradise - peace, quiet, country setting. Deer grazing alongside the drive. Staff were exceptionally helpful. Regrettably the first room offered looked across a courtyard and on the roof of the opposite building were two large extractor fans. Although they did not seem to be too noisy we didn't take the chance and were offered a room at the rear of the hotel overlooking the church gardens - beautifully quiet and more modern - which suited us well. Library style restaurant tranquil and comfortable with views of deer park, food excellent, service great. Shame about the guests who came down to breakfast on Sat am in their pyjamas!

            It was very well located for my business trip. Very quiet but I believe it is a very busy wedding venue and I was glad that my business trip didn't coincide with a wedding party.

            Slightly 'tired' looking...could do with a bit of a makeover.

            Everything was great, especially the setting with the deer herds.

          • Older travelers
            9.2

            We had a lovely stay fantastic location, and generally comfortable. Perfect areas to sit and relax, also a good base for visiting the area.

            Dinner menu was rather expensive for what you got and I feel the chef could do better.
