Thanks very much for everything over the last few months. Fantastic wedding venue and the staff were superb throughout. All of our guests loved the food and were very complimentary about the bedrooms. Special thanks to Jenna and the young lad who oversaw the day (forget his name). Thanks again for helping to make our day perfect. Chris & Donna

Attended our friends wedding. Whilst I cant comment on the accommodation as we didn't stop due to school run commitments the next day. However speaking to several other people who were stopping. The accommodation sounds top notch. Food was superb and you didn't feel hungry after the wedding breakfast unlike other establishments I have been to. Staff were lovely. Location... More

Superb stay, reception staff (Lauren & Chloe) were very friendly. Room was a "premier" room, and was very well equipped, view over the lake. Rib Room was decent, I'm not sure it was worth the price as the steak is no better than other places, considering they are predominately steak, I would have expected more. Service in the Rib Room...

I recently spent an evening at Hardwick Hall celebrating a friends special birthday. The function room was in a split level set up, I have to say it took me four attempts to find a clean chair to sit on. The food was very average for such an establishment and it was a far cry from the previous event I... More

This hotel is nice, it's large hotel with large function rooms. I had the deluxe room which has a huge bed and a very nice bathroom. The bedroom was nicely decorated clean and a good size. The bathroom is very big, a great iron free standing bath and a large walk in shower with good pressure. The hotel is quite... More

My husband booked a night at Hardwick Hall for a birthday treat for me as we got married here earlier in the year and had a fantastic day.

Over 3 days we had planned visits to Durham, Bishop Auckland and North Yorkshire and our main criterion for choosing a hotel was ease of parking and proximity to motorway. However we found the hotel had much more to offer - a splendid parkland location (though we didn't see much of this on account of the fog), really friendly staff,... More

We enjoyed lunch in the lounge area. The food was delicious. Service was really friendly. It is nice to see the park out of the windows. The hotel has lovely surroundings The only negative is that the food and drinks are a little expensive. If it was better value we would visit more often for lunch.

Attended a party at the hotel last night. The party included a 3 course sit down meal. The food, considering the amount of people eating, was very good. Served hot and in a timely manner. The hotel certainly has got it right. It's an ideal venue for a party.

Stayed at Hardwick Hall for one night with my boyfriend and it's a perfect hotel for a romantic night away. The rooms are a little old fashioned in decor but it just adds to the romance of the hotel. Very comfy bed and a good strong shower. The setting is beautiful and it's well worth taking a walk around the... More
