Reviews - Eshott Hall

4AA Assessed Guest Accommodation Ratings explained
ESHOTT HALL , MORPETH, NE65 9EN


Just 5 minutes from the A1, between Morpeth and Alnwick, this elegant
boutique Hotel is set in 35 acres of beautiful grounds and offers fine
dining, log fires, free Wi-Fi and parking.

Originally built in the 17th Century, this stunning country house is now a
luxurious privately owned Hotel nestled within its own spectacular gardens
and woodland. Designed to give the discerning guest a taste of authentic
country living, it perfectly blends the grace and charm of the past with the
contemporary comforts of the present.

Each of the Hotel's en-suite bedrooms have been individually designed and
sympathetically furnished in keeping with the history of the house. They all
combine traditional style with modern facilities to ensure a comfortable and
relaxing stay. Each room boasts views across the gardens and woodlands and
includes free Wi-Fi, flat-screen TV, iPod docking station, luxurious bath
products, soft robes, hairdryer and tea and coffee making facilities. Some
rooms have free standing baths, others have four poster beds, yet all are
distinct in character and charm. There are also several Classic rooms
located in Eshott Grange, a beautiful cottage just a 2 minute walk from the
main building.

Dining at Eshott Hall is an exquisitely wonderful experience. Their 2 AA
Rosette restaurant takes great pride in creating exciting and innovative
menus that utilise classic flavours with a contemporary twist. Wherever
possible they endeavour to use fresh, locally sourced produce and
ingredients, much of which comes from their own kitchen garden. Indeed such
is the quality of their food that they have been awarded an AA Rosette for
the highest standards of creative cuisine.

For those seeking a place to relax and unwind, there's the Library, with its
'gentleman's club' atmosphere, as well as the elegant surroundings of the
Drawing Room. The property also makes for the perfect venue for a wide range
of special occasions and private functions including weddings, celebrations
and corporate events.

The property is situated in the heart of Northumberland not a 5 minute drive
from the A1 and 15 minutes from both Alnwick and Morpeth. Newcastle upon
Tyne is just half an hour away and offers exceptional transport links to the
rest of the country, indeed there is also a local train station at Morpeth.
For those flying in, Newcastle International Airport is less than a 30
minute drive from the Hotel.

Eshott Hall is a perfect base from which to explore the spectacular beauty
of Northumberland. They are just a short distance from Alnwick Garden and
Castle, Bamburgh, Dunstanburgh, the Holy Island of Lindisfarne, the Heritage
Coastline, the Cheviots and Northumberland National Park. Newcastle upon
Tyne is also nearby and is world renowned for its vibrant nightlife and
extensive shopping. The city also boasts a fabulous architectural heritage
from the Norman Castle Keep, sweeping Georgian streets and landmarks of the
industrial revolution such as The Baltic - now the world's largest
contemporary art centre. Also down on the Quayside, close to two of the
city's imposing bridges, is the Sage Gateshead, Sir Norman Foster's
magnificent contemporary concert hall, an amazing venue for live music.

Lovely Hotel needs some work
The hotel was gorgeous, the situation idyllic and the staff were friendly. Almost no phone network, and WiFi only available in one room.
The room was lovely, roll top bath which pleased the Mrs, no shower, no fridge, no WiFi in the room. The view was fantastic, the grounds divine and well kept by friendly staff and wildlife.
The house staff alas came across as a little haphazard, nervous almost. One would be very professional and truly worthy of the full ticket price for a room, then you'd get the next member who really felt as if they were making it up as they went along. Please, don't get me wrong the place is lovely and I fully intend to return. I guess my point is the room wasn't made up the same way twice. When we arrived the reception phone was muted and the background music was subdued, the next night the reception phone ringer was on (and woke me at 5am) and the music noticeable till 11pm. The dead wasp on the stairs for 3 days, then the debate amongst staff about the disturbance being caused when the lass tried to vacuum... I noticed, I felt for her and it was a fairly normal time to do the job (~10.15am).
The food likewise was fantastic, but just lacked the consistency I would expect and have experienced at hotels of the same price bracket. For example, a Michelin Star private hotel I have visited near Dumfries charges less a night, and the food is exceptional whilst being similarly priced, with more consistent room service. I don't see the issue as one with the junior staff, I see it as an oversight issue that could easily be corrected. They need an experienced ever present head of front house, and maybe he was on holiday on these nights... but there was an unevenness that was perceptible.
This hotel aspires and clearly has the ability to really live up to it's full ticket price, I was glad I had paid a reduced rate as I felt it more accurate. I DID love the place though, and would return. Get a good deal and it's a perfect place for a quiet break, no phone calls... perfect!
- Please be under no illusions, this is a very nice place but given the full ticket price I hold it to high standards. -

A lovely country house hotel
It may be worth checking when you book this hotel if your room/en-suite has a shower as you may be disappointed to find out you only have a bath in the middle of your bedroom.
However we managed to Change our room and we where pleased with the new room!
The only downside with our new room was the loud fan which came on every time we ran the tap!!!
On the plus side the staff were very polite and friendly.

We really needed a night away from two small children to relax and found the perfect get away in Eshott. Delicious food, quiet and calm, even though it was fully booked you were hardly aware of anyone else. I was glad that we got a deal on late rooms as it would have been slightly too expensive otherwise. Perfect for what we were looking for with very friendly staff to look after us. Would recommend.

A lovely country house hotel
Well situated close to A1 but in a very quiet location, and with lovely gardens/grounds this hotel suited us perfectly for a 2 night stay. The food was excellent but we noted that the dinner menu did not change which would mitigate against a longer stay.

We have stayed here three times, and will keep returning. The hotel is beautiful and discreet. The staff are attentive and the customer service manager, Mariza, really goes the extra mile.

Just lovely!
I chose Eshott Hall because it is half way between the towns of Morpeth and Alnwick so very convenient. I had read excellent reviews of the hotel - I stayed for two nights with breakfast included. The hotel is stunning and the grounds surroundings are breathtaking - I stayed in the 'peacock room' with wonderful views of the lawns and gardens. The hotel staff were extremely welcoming, the accommodation magnificent and the dining experience superb. Even when we requested extra guests to join us for lunch ( which we hadn't booked) the staff went out of their way to accommodate our wishes even setting up a table for us in the lovely library room all to ourselves - the meals were absolutely delicious, beautifully presented . The same standards even when requesting room service dining. A lovely stay. Very impressed.
