Bellingham is in the heart of the Northumbrian countryside, great place to access Kielder and within an hours drive of the coast, for location this is a great place, quiet and understated. The hotel has many charms - above all the staff are very attentive and good at their jobs, it's the little things that make a difference. The food... More

This hotel is well located in rural Northumberland close to the Kielder forest. It is quaint having its own cricket field and also boasts a swimming pool with a somewhat cool sauna. The hotel does not purport to be top class but provides adequate accommodation in somewhat dated rooms that were clean and comfortable - if a little cool given... More

We had a lovely overnight stay here in a family room. The room was huge, comfortably accommodating all five of us with 'proper' beds (not foldouts or such like) and a sofa. I have stayed here previously and on both occasions the double bed was massive (queensize?) and very very comfortable. The staff were extremely welcoming and friendly from the... More

we had a pleasant stay here. Food is absolutely excellent, especially the steak, and the staff are lovely. However, the hotel is very clean but could do with some tlc as looking tired, apart from the dining room which was nice and bright and beautifully layer up. Would recommend a stay here as very good value for money.

Some aspects of this small, country hotel, are very good e.g the food and the large, comfy, spotless beds/bedding,bathroom and lovely fluffy towels. The evening meals we had, used locally sourced food and were splendidly cooked and served- price and choice very good, too. Breakfasts, likewise, were excellent, with good choice of food, served piping hot and extremely well-cooked. Our... More

Stayed here for two nights and were comfortable and well fed. Our room was large and overlooked the cricket ground and the river, very quiet. It had been modernised probably in the seventies by a handyman rather than a skilled craftsman! The detriment to us was we found the lighting both in the bedroom and bar areas not strong enough...

Stayed one night on the 4th May and was very impressed. The staff were very friendly, the room was large clean and comfortable with a great view and the food was exceptionally good. Far exceeded my expectations.

The riverdale is a little tired in places,but the food is excellent and very reasonably priced.Why do the idiots at Trip Advisor want you to go on and on with drivel? 200 characters minimu why,why! So I have to bore the pants of you readers.

Got a Living Social deal for here which was an overnight stay with dinner, bed and breakfast. Easy check in by a very pleasant young man who showed us to our room, no 1. A very large room with a double and single bed and adjoining bathroom. The views from the 2 windows were lovely, one of the river and... More

We never expected to stay here, I didn't want to -- but it was quite a nice experience, as it turns out. LARGE and very nice room in the annexe (the very word brings horrors to mind...) My boyfriend and I were stuck late after visiting Hadrian's Wall -- I know the No. Tyne area very well -- I'm from... More
