We had great weekend break, lovely hotel and situated next to the river just what we were looking for. The food was really nice, a great selection each night and friendly staff. We used the leisure facilities which were ok and were quiet most times, which was great to be able to relax. A very peaceful and quiet location.

This is a very nice hotel with bed breakfast and evening meal for circa £50 per night. Ignore the moaners. the rooms are fine, clean and ours had a greart view of the river. The meals incluing breakfast were good if not total haute cusine and the staff continuously friendly and helpful. It is great location for walkers and sightseers to Hadrians wall. Lots of kyakers and canoeists and Hexham is worth a visit. Overall a great low cost weekend choice

Room Tip: Relax and enjoy. Ask for a riverside room.

just returned after short stay at the george. we have stayed here many times and have always loved it. we first stayed here in 1980 on our honeymoon. the last three stays we have taken our best friends who also now love it. the restaurant and the leisure club are our faves, for me its the pool. the firework display in hexham was fabulous. i would recommend this to hotel for more mature couples who are still pretty fit.the location of this hotel is excellent especially when the sun shines which it did for us all weekend.

Room Tip: try fo get a room overlooking the river

Stayed for two nights in this nicely located hotel and overall had a good time. Rooms and some public areas are looking a little tired, but the bar and restaurant areas are OK.

Service was very good, friendly staff who were always on hand when needed. We ate in the restaurant both nights, with a 3 course meal being good value at £20, with drinks being reasonably priced. Quality of food was OK, fairly standard hotel fayre. Live entertainment on the Saturday night, a solo guitarist/singer who tried hard and was quite a laugh.

Didn't use the pool/gym facilities, they looked a little tired but at least they had them.

Nice room, decent size and end of corridor so very quiet, TV had only two channels on it (BBC1 & 2).

Plenty of car parking, although rear car park could do with a spruce up.

Fantastic location for exploring Hadrians Wall, Northumberland, Kielder etc.

We got a deal and paid under £50 per night for the room, excellent value for this far from perfect, but really quite nice anyway hotel

Room Tip: Try to get a room with a view of the Tyne.

Stayed here for a four night break from 17th October I really can't say anything bad about the place the room was comfortable the food was very good and the service was first class. They hotel over looks the river and is very quiet at night so traffic noise is not a problem. It has a swimming pool and sauna I didn't use these myself but they looked good, it also has free wi fi ok so its not a super fast connection but its fine for checking and sending your email. On the minus side its a bit remote there are no pubs near it to try you have to go to Hexham some 5 miles away. However if you like to go walking then you will love it because it totally surrounded by countryside and not far for exploring Hadrians Wall. So to sum up if you like hill walking and the countryside and you want a relaxing break then book yourself in and take no notice of the moaners, one couple were demanding another room at reception because the floorboards in there room were creaking what can I say except walk on the ceiling or get a life.

Room Tip: Rooms above reception are were you will get the best wifi connection

Next to the river in Chollerford and on the Hadrian's wall path the situation is great. We were expecting more luxury than was delivered given the description and price. This hotel is used by coach parties and is probably ok in a holiday deal but not when booked directly.
There is a pool but the changing areas remind one of an old school.
The bedroom was of average chain hotel design and size, but the furnishings were dated and in parts threadbare. Bathroom worked fine and the room was warm and clean.
The breakfast buffet was disappointing and did not match the menu on the table. When asked if the menu items were available we were told that everything was on the buffet, but friend were able to order from the menu but then had a long wait. There was no real choice for those not wanted the traditional fry up.Packed lunch was reasonable value for money. Evening meal was bland and service slow. Choice was limited and vegetarians have to do with the one dish of the day. Waiting staff were friendly but did not give one the feeling of quality or service. The wine list had some was reasonably priced. Views of the garden and river from the restaurant were a big plus.
WiFi worked only near reception but was free. There is a pleasant long bar again with those views.

Room Tip: Ask for a river view and book only via a discount package.

Dear Guest,

I would like to thank you for taking the time to post a review, it is an invaluable tool for us to help improve our standards. I am disappointed with your comments regarding our food, we find that the majority of our guests enjoy our breakfast and dinner and indeed find this a highlight of the stay generally speaking. I will of course speak with our head chef and restaurant manager and take improvement action where required to improve our meal offerings. I am pleased that you found our setting and views to be a particular highlight, i can only agree with you that we are very lucky to be located in such beautiful suroundings. We are constantly working through our refurbishment plan and although some of our rooms are yet to be updated maybe on a further visit you could try one our our luxurious and recently refurbished premier rooms. It is also good to hear that our free WIFI service is being taken advantage of by our guests.

I hope that we may soon be able to welcome you to The George

Kind Regards

David McDonald

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Set in a beautiful river front location, just five miles from the market town of Hexham, the George at Chollerford is a historic building dating back to the 1700's renowned for its fine food and hospitality. It is great to have such a history behind the hotel as we feel we are doing an excellent job of keeping the tradition going, but we have also spent a lot of money upgrading a number of facilities in the hotel including the leisure club, with its swimming pool and gym, situated west of Newcastle we are in ideal spot for walkers, history buffs and gardeners alike - you will be spoilt for choice. The hotel is a perfect retreat in a location that we consider to be one of the most relaxing in Northumbria. ... more   less
