We booked this hotel after reading TripAdvisor reviews about another hotel we had booked. It was a quick decision as most rooms were getting snapped up quickly. This hotel is ideally placed right in the middle of town, this is a double edged sword. It's great for convenience, but not so good when trying to sleep, we were woken by delivery lorries delivering to nearby shops and kept up to date by the church clock next door chiming every quarter hour. The hotel was clean and tidy, although the room was not ensuite, having to walk down the corridor to use our exclusive bathroom. Although recently decorated, the room reminded me of the flat in the show Rising Damp! The room TV was a joke, about 18" I could hardly see it from the bottom of the bed. The hotel sub let the kitchen each night which provides Indian cuisine, the food was good and reasonably priced. Breakfast was hit and miss one day it was aulful the next acceptable, no toast, no orange unless requested, no consistency, this was the first time that I've had two roast potatoes with a full English! The hotel is very reasonably priced per night, but I'd not stay there again or recommend this hotel to my friends.

We booked a 3 night stay here and as soon as we walked in we doubted our choice. Dark, tatty and in need of a revamp. The staff greeted us and everyone was very…….if not a little too friendly and eager to please. We were shown our ‘king size’ room. King size the bed may have been, king size the room it certainly wasn’t. The woodwork is all painted dark grey adding to the gloom of the room. The roller blind was broken and rendered it useless. Bed was reasonably comfy and we both got a good nights sleep. There were three mirrors, one long one on the back of the door, the other two so high on the walls you’d need to be at least 7ft tall to see in them. Paintwork chipped on the repainted bedside cabinets. The bathroom was another story……or I should say…’the cupboard’. Old, dirt, dilapidated comes to mind but grubby and smelly it certainly was. Smelt of stale urine. The basin hadn’t been cleaned from the last occupant, the soap mark still on the left side. The shower worked ok…….once the hot water reached it …but was crusted in black mould. Towels thin enough to see through but adequate. The towel rail hung off the wall. On return to our room after the first day we found it unserviced. Rubbish hadn’t been removed, bed unmade, wet towels lay where we left them to be changed. Hospitality tray….with its disgusting plastic cups, hadn’t been refreshed. On asking I was told “we don’t service rooms with only a two night stay”. I said we are here for 3. “Oh only after a 3 night stay” was the reply. I told her what room we were in and asked for dry towels etc. She returned and said “we don’t service rooms due to Covid”. REALLY? We’d stayed in a Premier inn, had China cups and a daily room service…. Corridors are divided by fire doors but are not soft close and the whole room shook whenever one was let go. Breakfast was good….. once we got it. We arrived down for breakfast at 8.10. Our order was taken and tea brought straight away. It was 8.50 before the food arrived. Several excuses….grill won’t heat to right temperature, cook always cooks from fresh, only the one cook…..we were the only ones in there at that time. Surely if breakfast starts at 8 then the equipment should be up and running before then, ready to cook. The full English came with no toast….that was an extra £2.50. We asked for brown toast and was told no brown, only white. Unfortunately we learned of a family emergency at home on the second morning and had to cut the trip down by 1 day but the girl we spoke to was very helpful and understood and adjusted our bill accordingly due to policy. Suffice to say, we shan’t be back there again, it’s a shame as the area is stunning and Rothbury is a good base.

Had a wonderful 2 night relaxing stay at Newcastle House. Having previously stayed in many hotels were the staff struggled to engage with guests this hotel was totally different .. From check in onwards the staff were pleasant, polite and attentive, Having an indian restaurant was a bonus and the food was tasty although the portions could have been a bit more generous in terms of meat content if I was being critical Room was clean if not massive and due to being over the bar there was a bit of noise from downstairs but only until about 11pm The village is pleasant but only a couple of other eating establishments - on the 2nd night (Thurs) we tried to book a meal on spec at about 7.30 but both the Queens Head and the italian were fully booked so it was back to the hotel for a 2nd indian Breakfast which was included in the price was very good

**Covid times** We stayed here three nights in October 2020. We paid 180£ with breakfast included, and with our doggy included too. They are pet friendly and that’s one of the best things of this place. It’s location is perfect, right in the middle of the village. The staff were lovely. The rooms are old and old fashion but the bed was comfy and the bathroom was clean and that’s what it matters for us and for the price we paid. We can’t complain about music during night because the pubs were closed at 10pm, so it was quiet and nice. Cons: the walls were really thin and we were able to hear every single door opening and closing, voices...and that’s not good if you have noisy neighbours. Breakfast: we tried every option and everything was good. We could ask different options even not being in the menu. We maybe missed something sweet and fresh fruits as options available.
