We had often meant to call in here during our journeys North and South, and are so glad that at last we made it!! The hotel is situated close to the main A96, and commands beautiful views over the Northumberland countryside.. Lovely staff made us very welcome and attended to our order swiftly and efficiently.. We had a delicious lasagne followed by a wonderful creme brulee. Both exceeded in quality similar dishes we had had elsewhere, for which we had been charged much more than here!!! Our ambition would be to return here for a short holiday, perhaps when the dreaded Covid has been evicted from the UK - or would that be too ambitious?! But it gives you something to aim at?! Thank you for a lovely evening. We plan to come again, if we are spared!

This is a great hotel situated on the A68 between Otterburn and Rochester. Very well appointed and spacious rooms. Nice breakfast. Good range of food available for lunch or evening meals. The staff are friendly and helpful. Lovely views from the front of the hotel. Highly recommended and good value.

I recently stayed at the Redesdale Arms again and as always it was a great visit. It was my first stop on the start of a holiday travelling around the UK and I was a little nervous as I hadn’t been far from home since the national lockdown but Carroll and Mark were so kind and welcoming. They had all COVID guidelines in place and I felt really safe and comfortable there. My room was spotless and as comfortable as ever. I also had dinner which was super and the restaurant was set up really well and the food and staff were great. It was such a nice way to start my holiday during these unprecedented times and great to be so well looked after. I know I’ll be back again hopefully in the not too distant future.

My daughter and I took a trip after several months locked in to sort out some business in the Scottish Borders. On the way back we stopped in at the Redesdale. It was lovely and safely run with all of the protection for Customers and Staff to the fore. We sat outside and had a great lunch looking out over the Dale . Go and enjoy the hospitality at this great wee pub, you won't regret it.

Stayed for two nights and couldnt fault the hotel. The staff and owner were very friendly and couldn't do enough for us. Carrol sorted out a drying room for our very wet motorbike gear even though she was busy in the restaurant. Also nice and central for both coast and country. Definately stay here again.
