Luxury Wedding venue and Hotel. Gorgeous and Chic Sister Venue of Newton Hall. Call for Enquiries: 01830 570 400
A HISTORIC Northumberland hotel has been transformed into a fantastical, French-inspired chateau, complete with a stunning Mediterranean garden, as part of a plan to create one of the country’s most original and exciting wedding venues.
Don't get me wrong, myself and my wife love this place. We've been here before, pre pandemic and loved it. So i booked it again for my wife's birthday. Unfortunately due to the pandemic it got postponed. We were eventually offered the apartment. So we thought it would be a great change of scenery, even though the bar and restaurant weren't open. However to call it a self contained apartment is misleading. We took food for ourselves to cook in the apartment. Unfortunately when we arrived, we discovered there was no kitchen facilities. There is a fridge, which is stocked with drinks and milk for tea and coffee, which is also supplied. There is also some boxes of cereal and a couple of croissants. Don't get me wrong, the apartment is beautiful. But it's more a suite of rooms, then an apartment. Unfortunately the weather didn't help, on our search for a hot meal. It was cold and torrential rain, so we didn't fancy going to the pub down the road to sit outside for a meal. Fortunately the shop down the road sold a good selection of snacks and hot food to takeaway. I know when I received the email, I was told that as the bar and restaurant was closed we would have to make our own arrangements for food. So we assumed there would be kitchen facilities. Very misleading…
AVOID AVOID AVOID WARNING avoid this place like the plague paid a large deposit for wedding but due to Covid it can no longer go ahead they refuse to refund us and other couples too saying Covid is an act of god
Had a 2 night stay in this lovely Hotel, warmly welcomed at reception and good C19 precautions in place. Had a lovely room on upper floor, maybe a bit more light and some of the bulbs flickered a bit with dimmer. However warm and comfortable with a nice bathroom with wet room shower. Breakfast was excellent and all staff very friendly and effective. I can see it's totally geared towards weddings and maybe in more normal times that might be an issue but we had no problems with noise. Glimpsing a few other rooms as they were being cleaned and all looked unique at interesting, definitely a bit faux French eccentric but comfortable.
What a place. Nestled in a beautiful part of the world, we found Derek. Derek is the embodiment of customer service and made our night. Nothing is too Much and the interior is beautiful. Keep up the good work, we appreciate it.
In answer to a reviewer below who says Le Petite Chateau is trying to be all things to all people (a wedding venue, restaurant, hotel and pub), I respectfully disagree. It makes no bones about the fact that it is first and foremost a wedding venue. But times being what they are, and Covid putting many couples’ matrimonial plans on hold, it’s trying to adapt. My husband and I had a very different experience to some of the most recent reviewers. We stayed in Room 1, the bridal suite, on the night of Saturday, 10 Oct, and frankly couldn’t have enjoyed our visit more. From the spaciousness of our room and adjacent balcony overlooking the gardens, to the unapologetic, pastiche-y OTT-ness of the French provincial decor in the public spaces, to the helpfulness of the staff, this place was a delight, a real break from the Covid hell of the past several months. Now, if we’d stayed in a different room (that bridal suite spoils you for anything else) or if we’d had to compete for attention with a wedding party, or if, like some recent reviewers, we had to endure late night party noise from the outside patio area, maybe I’d be writing a different review. But like I say, now’s the time to visit if you want a restful stay—we were eating dinner in the restaurant in the final sitting of the evening, and come 10 pm staff turned off the firepit outside and basically told everybody to hoist anchor. Perfect, blissful silence as we made our way back upstairs to go do some star gazing on the balcony. We also chatted for a while on Saturday afternoon with the hotel’s wedding maestro, Tim, and I have to say that were you in the market for a small, unique venue for your nuptials, with a safe pair of hands looking after you, I don’t think you could do better than Le Petite Chateau.…
