4AA Assessed Country House Hotel Ratings explained
DOXFORD HALL, CHATHILL, NORTHUMBERLAND, NE67 5DN
Located 8 miles from historic Alnwick and perfect for exploring the Northumberland countryside and coastline, this magnificent 4 Red Star AA rated country house offers extensive spa and leisure facilities, luxurious accommodation and fine dining.

Originally built in 1818, the Hotel has been lovingly refurbished and great care has been taken to preserve the many wonderful period features including an impressive grand staircase, beautiful woodwork, paintings and roaring log
fires. Standing within its own private 10 acre estate, the delightfully tranquil surroundings provide an idyllic setting for those seeking an
indulgent retreat.

Each of the 31 en-suite guestrooms have their own traditional charm and character yet they all benefit from modern facilities, bespoke furniture and many even have views over the gardens. Designed to provide the highest standards of comfort and convenience all rooms feature an internet connection, flat-screen TV, hairdryer, complimentary toiletries, hairdryer
and 24 hour room service. There are plenty of accommodation options to choose from including Classic Double or Twin rooms, larger Executive rooms and luxurious Superior Rooms with King-Size beds.



For those serious about their food, the AA Rosette awarded George Runciman
Restaurant offers a sublimely authentic fine-dining experience. Open daily,
the contemporary table d’hôte and à la carte menus change with the seasons
assuring a variety of innovative and creative cuisine including their
acclaimed Sunday Lunch. Guests can also enjoy afternoon tea in the Georgian
Room overlooking the original estate, or perhaps a few pre-dinner drinks in
the Cocktail Bar.



For those seeking to indulge in a spot of relaxation and wellbeing, the Spa
at Doxford Hall is an ideal venue in which to fully unwind and rejuvenate.
Sooth away the stress and strains of modern living by enjoying a session in
one of their five Tranquillity Suites. There is also a Fitness Suite
complete with a high-tech gymnasium, swimming pool, sauna and steam rooms

With such a peaceful location and elegant surroundings, the Hotel is the
perfect choice for private functions such as weddings, special occasions and
corporate events.



The Hotel is situated less than a 5 minute drive from the A1 and just 15
minutes north of Alnwick, it also has plenty of free on-site parking for all
guests. Newcastle upon Tyne is roughly 45 minutes away and offers excellent
transport links to the rest of the country. There is also a train station at
Alnmouth, just over a 20 minute taxi ride from the Hotel. For those flying
in it’s a 50 minute drive from Newcastle International Airport.



Doxford Hall is perfectly situated for those wishing to explore the stunning
Northumberland countryside and coastline. The Holy Island of Lindisfarne,
Bamburgh, Dunstanburgh, Alnwick Garden, beautiful beaches and the
Northumberland National Park are all just a short drive away. Just a little
further afield is the historic town of Berwick and the rolling hills,
valleys and moorland of the Scottish Borders. For those who crave the
excitement of the city lights, Newcastle upon Tyne offers visitors a vibrant
nightlife, extensive shopping, award-winning theatre and arts as well as a
fascinating architectural heritage.

A bit of luxury in quiet surroundings
A beautiful building with a lot of history - the gardens are well looked after and you feel you are in the countryside. The layout of inside of the hotel is well appointed. Staff were exceptional, from reception, dining room and bar, they could not do enough for you. Service was efficient. A lovely swimming pool. This hotel was recommended to us by our son and daughter-in-law who happened to stay en route back home from holiday - they would also love to spend more time at Doxford Hall Hotel.

Great setting, good service, ok food
There for a short stay. No real negatives although if I had to be critical I would say the fitness centre was a bit of a token effort, and the pool was more something for the kids than a relaxing spa addition. Staff were excellent

Lovely Stay
Lovely hotel and very spacious room. Small niggles - a little bit noisy with wedding party at weekend and had to wait a little too long for drinks service at weekend, possible understaffing? Food very high quality. Would definitely stay again.

We enjoyed our stay at Doxford Hall very, very much. We have stayed before so the decision to come again was easy. We missed Mr. Burnie but of course knew that he would not be there.

Impressed
Room was lovely and luxurious! Staff were friendly and helpful. We arrived earlier than check in time and our room was not ready, so they found another room for us. Breakfast was nice with lots of choice. Spa facilities were nice and the grounds around the hotel were beautiful!

We booked last minute for a special break to celebrate our wedding anniversary. We could not have chosen better, everything was wonderful, we had a very special time and will definitely be going back.
Room, staff, food Spa - could not fault it.

Relaxing night at Doxford Hall
We thoroughly enjoyed our short retreat at Doxford Hall. We were greeted cheerfully on arrival, and our room was well appointed, light and had a garden view.
The spa facilities were most welcome. We had a quiet night (surprisingly difficult in hotels) and enjoye a plentiful breakfast.
The only thing which we would have improved would be to have a less well-done poached egg!
