My wife and I stayed for 2 nights on a ‘Making memories’ package and were thoroughly impressed. The grounds and exterior set our expectations as we drove in, and we were not disappointed. The reception staff were fully aware of the details of our package and were very friendly, in fact they could not have done anything more to improve on our first impressions.
We stayed in the Lily suite which was the brightest room I have ever encountered. The room had 3 large Georgian sach windows which flooded the room in natural light. It was very comfortably furnished in the French style with a fabulous bed. The bathroom was similarly impressive, in the Victorian style with his & hers basins, free standing bath and large walk in shower.
Every member of staff we encountered were genuinely friendly, giving their full attention and made sure we were happy without being intrusive. The restaurant (breakfast and Dinner) was set in the beautifully converted stable block. The menu was comprehensive and very good quality, served piping hot and without delay.
In summary, I cannot speak highly enough about the hotel and its staff, the stay was very enjoyable and we will be back at one stage.
The hotel is approximately a mile from Beamish open air museum which is a great day out and highly recommended.
Thank you to Beamish Hall staff for making our stay memorable.

We stayed at this hotel for its convenience for visiting Beamish Museum and Durham.
Hotel is beautiful and has character however lack of eating facilities and poor internet let it down.
Some form of evening entertainment would have enhanced our visit.

Staying in this magnificent country house in equally stunning grounds really is like being to the Manor born. As your might expect the rooms are a tad dated, but the restaurant is tasteful in every way, and it’s doubtful if you’ll find a better base from which to visit Beamish Village. What an eye catching enactment this is of the life and times of yesteryear. Both places are a must to visit if you’re in the North East.

For a deluxe double the room wasn't very good at all, felt more like a cheap Blackpool B&B. smelt very musty, dead spiders on the furniture didn't help much. All the bedding was clean, bathroom was clean. The stables restaurant was really good and the food was excellent.

Just back from a Sunday lunch here and it looked a lovely place. Greeted warmly,drinks ordered and then shown to our table for 6. Starters and main courses ordered by 13.00. Starters took over 20 minutes to arrive. Our mains were not brought until at least 40 minutes after. Meals looked fine but not very warm, the yorkshires were cold. We mentioned this to the lovely girl who came to check all ok. Then another chap offered to get us new meals which we declined,not wanting to wait another 40 minutes.
Food passable but veg too al dente for our liking. All in all extremely disappointed at what was supposed to be a family reunion, as we live in France, only here for a week. Perhaps the wedding meals being served in other room were prioritised? The meal wasn't cheap and we all expected better. Sorry,but will not be returning.
