Matfen Hall awarded five-star AA rating

Matfen Hall has received a five-star rating from The AA, becoming the first and only five-star hotel in Northumberland.

The Grade II-listed luxury hotel and country estate has undergone a multi-million pound refurbishment – which included extensive renovations and upgrades to its Great Hall, dining areas, bars and bedrooms – and impressed inspectors on their visit.

AA five-star ratings are only awarded to hotels which provide luxurious accommodation and public areas. Along with the highest standards of food and drink, hotels must also demonstrate a host of extra facilities and a multilingual service.

James O’Donnell, head of commercial development at Matfen Hall, said: “We’re delighted to receive such a prestigious accolade which is testament to all the hard work by the whole team at Matfen Hall. This is also a great acknowledgement of the vision and investment by Walwick Estate Group, and its dedicated focus on achieving the very highest level of quality, setting us apart as a leading luxury venue. The five-star rating is a key benchmark of quality and we look forward to ensuring we exceed expectations as part of a programme of continuous improvement that will see further significant investment, including on the golf and spa offer.”
