As always, although only a one night stay, enjoyed our time here again. Staff very pleasant, good meal in the restaurant and a cracking breakfast to send us on our way. Room, very clean and warm, with all the bits and bobs you expect. The hotel is in a great location and if like us you like a good walk,...

Having spent my early years in Northumberland, we looked for a short break to spend a nostalgic couple of days and alighted on The Queens Head. Having read some reviews we were a little apprehensive about booking, but all the doubts we had were quickly dispelled on our arrival. Yes, it is an older hotel, and yes it is in...

We were given a weekend voucher for The Queens Head as a present. On arrival we were greeted and shown to our room very promptly and politely. At the booking stage I had asked for a room on the first floor as my partner has mobility problems and difficulty with stairs and we were already aware that there was no...

Stayed on Wowcher deal. Excellent value for money. Located in lovely village, central for exploring both Kielder & Coastal areas. Very old fashioned in appearance and yes in need of some facelifting in places, but cosy and good food. Room clean, plenty of space and storage. Some road noise as premises direct onto main road through village...but didn’t disturb us...

Staff were very pleasant and helpful food was great and choice was good too, Room was warm and cosy and clean. Breakfast had a good selection and we wanted for nothing they used their own sausages made on the premises and the menu for evening meal was varied with extra specials added each night.

We stayed here for one night one way to Scotland. On a wet Sunday night, first impressions were not brilliant, but our room was very clean and well appointed for a nights stay. The bed was comfortable, shower room spotless and adequate. The bar staff were very friendly, as were the locals. But the best thing was the food, which...

First the positives, The restaurant food was excellent, as was the breakfast and also the breakfast room was laid out beautifully. The staff were pleasant and friendly.
