My husband and I stayed here at the end of June/beginning of July this year for 2 nights, and had a lovely stay. We had one of the refurbished rooms on the top floor,which was great. Nice sized room, good views, sitting area, large bathroom with separate shower and comfortable bed and free wifi.
We ate in the Italian restaurant the first night. I liked the atmospheric darkness with candles and wooden floors, but was mightily relieved when the children's party left before we sat down to eat! The food was good, and the desert, a trio of locally made puds (sticky toffee, ginger and chocolate) was outstanding.
Breakfast was hearty and tasty the next morning. The owner is very personable and chatted to us on several occasions. He explained that the hotel was undergoing refurbishment on a rolling programme, which didn't disturb us at all; all of the loft rooms have been finished, and they are well worth a stay.
There are details of all the staff in an info pack in the room, which i thought was a nice touch.
Rothbury itself is rather quiet, although there is a good art gallery on the high street, and this hotel seems to be the best in the area; the restaurant got quite busy.
All in all a great stay, and we would return-it was excellent value for money.
