This hotel is a little jaded in parts but is so well situated that its forgiven! its literally a stroll; from Hadrians Wall and 20 mins from Kielder so well placed for discovering both newcastle and the beauty of the area. we had a room at the back looking over the gardens and river which was lovely. It was quiet and clean and staff are really helpful. The only let down was the very average food of the table d'hote menu... not a place for foodies but if you just need feeding at the end of a full dayits fine - surrounding in the bar area are modern but cosy.
Bedroom was clean and tidy - furniture a bit past its best and bathroom needed upgrading but still ok if you are after a comfy place to lay your head rather than "luxury".
hotel now owned by Shearings - the coach trip people - so a more "mature" clientele.
- 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
