We had a fabulous lunch and evening meal in the library. The service was amazing. All the staff were very organised and we felt so well looked after. Desmond was so lovely to us and kept asking if he could do anything for us and to enjoy our night. 1st class service can’t wait to return Thank you

The hotel room was fabulous. Breakfast was late on day 1 and our order was forgotten on day 2, I had to reorder and even then things were missing. The service in the conservatory was poor - I was advised on two occasions it was table service only having approached the bar to order because no one would make eye contact or come over. Food was tasty, drinks were ok, poor selection of beers.

Don’t add the ‘optional’ service charge on to the bill without asking. Optional means a choice - not just added on without a word of discussion. Poor customer service Money taking scam

Although the food was good, a larger selection on the menu would be good, as we would imagine if you are eating in the restaurant more than two nights, then the menu is somewhat limited. Deserts need to be more exciting. Forget the safe option of sticky toffee pudding and think outside the box, as I'm sure Paul and Nick have some fabulous ideas!

Matfen is in my top 5 I love to visit repeatedly, never tire of same. The entire building is simply stunning and having the Great Hall open was added bonus. The staff are friendly, courteous and professional. The food is divine.

What a fantastic spa hotel. We were upgraded on arrival to the principal room which was beautiful. We had a very relaxing stay at Matfen, the evening meal and breakfast was lovely. It was very well organised with regards to Covid restrictions and safe. We will most definitely be returning. Thank you
