I had read previous reviews, so was a bit worried about booking this hotel for a stay 2 nights with my husband.The location looked perfect so we went ahead with the booking.
All the hotel staff were extremely professional,pleasant and efficient.
The reception areas are well maintained and have been updated.
We both thought the breakfasts and evening meals were presented very well and tasted good.
I agree with other reviews, the hotel bedrooms are in need of an update, but I think their previous guests have been very heavy handed causing the damage to washbasins and the bedroom furniture.
No lifts if you have any mobility problems, it can be quite a walk from the car park to the bedroom.
For the price of a half board stay I would recommend this hotel, knowing beforehand that the bedrooms are a bit worn, but if you get a river view at no extra cost!!
Unfortunately we didn't use the Leisure facilities so I cant comment on them.
The grounds and gardens also need a bit of care, but if you just want an overnight as a base and this hotel break is not the main part of your holiday,then this hotel is good value.
- 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
