fantastic for a wedding

by TripAdvisor Member samlouise20

We had our wedding here and we would highly recommend it to anyone. About 20 of our guests stayed over at the hotel and we were all very well looked after from the moment we arrived the day before the wedding until we checked out.

The setting is fantastic and we have some gorgeous photographs of us in the hotel grounds. All of the staff were extremely attentive and courteous.

During the winter the lounge and bar areas have huge log fires which add to the cosy abience of the hotel. Breakfast is not a hurried affair as in previous reviews. We had plenty to choose from on both days and you could choose from a plentiful buffet and order a cooked breakfast from the menu. Ours even came with champagne! There was a small hitch during our wedding meal - a few of our guests' sorbet's had pieces of tin foil in them but the staff were extremely apologetic and the duty manager gave every table 2 extra bottles of wine, gave us a free bottle of champagne, upgraded our hotel room to a suite (It was huge with speakers in the bathroom and a separate seating area) and invited us to stay for another complimentary night inc. dinner. We really couldn't complain at this and can't thank Linden Hall enough for really making our wedding day special.

Very poor indeed

by TripAdvisor Member LondonOtm

I have just returned from a weekend with my wife and have to say we were both extremely disappointed with the hotel.
The hotel has great potential which makes it all the more frustrating however there were just so many faults. It clearly likes to think of itself as a top class hotel, and charges accordingly, but it is a long way short.
Our room was uncomfortably hot and small and in a very poor state of repair. The pool and spa area is also in very poor condition as is much of the hotel.
The staff were all friendly enough but the whole place seems to be lacking in management with staff often disappearing or just talking amongst themselves.
We ate in the restaurant on the first night and the food was far from great for what you were paying. Breakfast was also very poor. On both mornings it was an age before we were served and the cooked breakfast had clearly been left lying around for a while before it was brought to us.
After dinner in the restaurant we had coffee in the lounge which was spoiled by some male friends of some of the waitresses coming in and noisily talking beside us with pints in hand. To be fair the guy who seemed to be in charge in the restaurant asked them to leave but was ignored.
If they got their act together this really could be great but they have a long way to go.

Great Break

by TripAdvisor Member TinaWales_7

We stayed overnight at this hotel while attending a wedding.

Initially, thought this was overpriced for bed and breakfast accommodation. However, found -

Lovely location, very well kept grounds. I must praise the friendly/helpful staff, good welcome, efficient reception and excellent service in the breakfast room.

Our room was immaculate and had a great views. Pleasantly surprised when we were able to get settled into the room well before the stated check in time. This hotel has been recently refurbished, but retains a traditional feel. The whole event was managed to a very high standard.

Excellent

by TripAdvisor Member TJE35

We had our wedding there on the 14th September, and it was superb!
All the staff where superb, the facilties, rooms where all excellent.
Everything went exactly as we had planned it. Many of us stayed the night before and had a round of golf (you need a buggy, a long course!) and spent the evening in the pub (Linden Tree).
Service was superb and everyone thought the hotel, grounds etc where excellent.
We looked at probably every possible venue in the North East, only this one had everything we needed. You couldn't pick a better venue!

Would have loved to party.......

by TripAdvisor Member JandHAshington

This was the 3rd time we stayed at this hotel. The first 2 visits were superb so we booked another night. Our room was at the front of the hotel (above the kitchen so the smell of stale cooking was a bit offputting when we arrived but we threw open the window to let some fresh air in. It was a very warm night and there was a wedding reception in the function room and judging by the guests it was going well. We went to bed just before midnight and wanted an early start in the morning so just lay patiently waiting for the music to stop at midnight so we could get some sleep. At 1 AM we had already closed the window and hoped it would stop then. We discovered that the thin glass in the old frames did little to stop the noise. We gave up waiting for the music to stop when we were lying listening to The Commitments at 3am. Then thankfully, peace and quiet, until the guests starting heading to their rooms. At about 4am we eventually fell asleep only to get up early as the breakfasts finish at 9.30 and if you leave it too late you have to wait to be seated. We did complain and the staff were very nice about it but we did point out that if a wedding is being held would it not make sense to put other guests at the back of the hotel. I would probably stay again as I do like the setting but would definately request a room at the back.
