I can't speak too highly about this hotel and in particular the staff, the service, helpfulness and politeness are a credit to the hotel. We stayed in a suite which was fantastic it had everything you'd expect from a hotel of this quality. The food in the restaurant was excellent great quality and reasonably priced. The spa was great, the service and treatments were fantastic and well priced. I would not hesitate to recommend a stay at Headlam Hall.

This was the second stay inside 2 months so this is going to be a positive review! This place is lovely, plenty of space, nice setting, good rooms and great staff. Set in lovely countryside and near the very nice town of Barnard Castle, Headlam Hall is great. The Spa has an outdoor area so you can sit in the warm water even in winter. If you are going out for the day try one of the packed lunches but make sure you are hungry and won't be having diner too early!

We’ve just had a lovely three day break at Headlam Hall…our fourth and definitely not last visit to this beautiful hotel. We were a family of three plus Holly the dog so we stayed in the mews family room…as always it was immaculate. The food was excellent and the dinner menu surpassed our previous visits. We all had treatments in the spa which were perfect and we enjoyed spending most of our time in the pool area. We even made it into the gym this time which is really well equipped and exceptionally clean. The staff throughout the hotel were friendly and attentive whilst still being discreet. As we have a guest house ourselves it’s always hard to stay in places without being a bit critical…but on this occasion as with previous stays we wouldn’t change a thing and have already booked our next visit. Thank you all at Headlam 😊

Wonderful overnight stay, upon check on met by friendly attentive staff, the character of the building is beautiful and seemed even more so magical this time of year. The room in main hall was spacious and impeccably clean. Drinks in the bar first class again staff attentive and welcoming. Special mention to Tracey who went above and beyond. Food was wonderful cannot wait to come back again. Spa small and on arriving there were no spaces on loungers but this was due to inconsiderate guests leaving towels on them while they spent 30mins in the hot tub. Once they left there was plenty of space and facilities are good despite the steam room being out of order. Very clean and service of beverages great touch.
