We had an enjoyable weekend. The lounge has had a makeover, but the rest of the hotel is a bit tired, but for the price it is good value. The food was very good. The staff were friendly and helpful. The room we had was a bit dark as we only had two small bedside lights and a dull wall... More

If you walk through the front doors to a warm reception you mustn't forget that you've got a great deal in a 3 star hotel. Don't get ideas above your station, you've booked one of the cheaper hotels in Northumberland and therefore this is the bar you should be measuring The George against. Against this 3* bar we had an... More

We had considered yhis hotel for our wedding reception 6 years ago but were put off by the inflexibility of trying to fit around the hotel's timetable.

Used the hotel as a halfway meet up with family. It suited our purposes well. The staff were helpful and friendly. The hotel was quaint. Creaky floorboards are part of its character.

Nice room (for which we paid small upgrade fee) overlooking the gardens and river. Weather very cold but our room well-heated, as was washing/showering water. Dining room was always quite cold so jumpers needed! Apparently some... More

Stayed with colleagues whilst working in Hexham.

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
