“Good value stay - great place to eat/drink !”
Reviewed 19 March 2012

Had a lovely few days here, the hotel is set in very pretty countryside and is peaceful and quiet. We stayed in a deluxe double that was tastefully finished in classical country house style. The room had everything you would expect, was clean and big enough to fit in a large travel cot.

The staff was welcoming, approachable and were able to help us with any requests. When things were not right - the freeview box was broken (not in its own right a big issue but vital to our grumpy and tired toddler who wanted a little cbeebies before bedtime!) they dealt with it quickly and in a friendly manner.

Good breakfast with lots of choice and showcasing the best of local produce.

For us the highlight was the Stables restaurant, the beers from the microbrewery were excellent and the food was wholesome & tasty. The menu offered a good range of choices - think good quality pub grub rather than fine dining - I would recommend the beef and Beamish Ale pie which was excellent! They also offer a good children’s menu which has lots of options and offers freshly made foods rather than the predictable deep-fried ‘freezer food’ you normally see on the kids menu!

Arrived in the morning for a friends wedding and was impressed from the outset by the building and the setting. Sat through a marvellous wedding celebration which from the ceremony to the early hours of the morning was handled by courteous and professional staff of various ages, highlights of which were the synchronised waitresses serving the wedding lunch and Brian the master of ceremonies to mention but a couple. Spent some time in The Stables bar/restaurant to sample some of their home brewed ales (nice by the way) and retired to a perfectly lovely room, not large but nicely done,immaculately presented and in keeping with the building. Yes, if your a whinger the tv is a little small ( but then i didnt book into a hotel to watch tv) and if you like a ton of fluffy pillows there arent, but what was there i found sufficient and you could whinge if your stupid, that you got into trouble for smoking in a hotel that has ample signage informing you that it is a non smoking hotel. Bear in mind that this hotel does hold a lot of functions (for obvious reasons) which can mean activity until thevearly hours, and that the building was never meant to be a hotel so the addition of bathrooms to the bedrooms means that they are a bit more invasive than that in a modern building. Take what you will from this review but my family and I do not begrudge a single penny we spent this weekend and will visit again. Thanks to all that made for a perfect stay.

This is a wonderful old house next to Beamish. It is always a joy to see these houses being put to good use and not left to go to ruin! Unfortunately, the house is in great need of decoration. We stayed for a couple of nights and were very disappointed with our 'premier room'. My wife complained to the front desk staff and the woman arranged to have us moved to another room, they didn't have another 'premier' room but showed us a deluxe room which we happily accepted. Every member of staff from the minute we arrived to the minute we left was FANTASTIC. It would be nice if the hotel had a residents bar as the stables doesn't have enough seating if you don't want to eat - that is a suggestion that would have further improved our stay. Our meal at the Stables was very good as was our breakfast, we were very impressed to see a "full-english" vegetarian being offered, my wife really enjoyed this. The bed was comfy but a it would have been better if bigger

Myself and a colleague stayed for two nights at this hotel. I cannot speak highly enough of the value and high standards of the accomodation. The rooms were individual and extremely clean. Breakfast was great and no one rushed us ( even when we were the last to leave ) The Stables restaurant offered a varied menu which was low in cost but high in quality. The staff were very friendly and professional. It is a hotel with real character and a relaxing ambiance. I would definately recommend a stay for business or pleasure.

Room Tip: Room 4 has some wow features!!
