We had a recent short break here. We have stayed several times here from the days it was a Swallow Hotel. Today it is a bit tired. For all we had an upgrade to our room (newly decorated and with new furniture) the bathroom was in need of refurbishment. The fittings had once upon a time had a gold finish. This was worn away, leaving a not very good impression. Nevertheless the hotel was full and its situation beside the River Tyne is magnificent. Food was reasonable not fine dining more like school dinners chosen from a type of menu you would expect in a fast food chain. It did however change daily, unlike in many hotels today.
- 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
