Stopped here for 5 nights. Very comfortable room and very quiet. Staff very friendly and helpful. Food in the restaurant and bar was extremely good quality and very reasonably priced. The service was 10/10. Great breakfast with a fab Northumberland full monty. This is a great place to stay and I would recommend it very highly.

My husband and I have just spent the night at The Queens Head. We had a lovely newly refurbished room, finished just 2 days ago. The staff were very friendly. The evening meal was excellent. It was the best selection we have ever had for breakfast and again excellent. We would certainly stay again .

I have stayed at the Queens Head over 15 times with birdwatching groups, but this most recent visit was for a short family holiday. The hotel is ideally situated for exploring the Northumberland National Park, Druridge Bay Coast and NT Cragside House. It is refreshing to stay somewhere with a personal touch, where you can get to know the staff... More

We wanted to stay conveniently for Cragside, and the satnav said two miles as we headed for it. In the main street of Rothbury, a pleasant town, with convenient parking immediately behind. We noticed that there was a singer that evening and were somewhat concerned that our rest could be disturbed, both weary after a drive from Scotland and a... More

Stayed at the Queens Head several times especially in February to explore the beautiful countryside, beaches and history of Northumberland. The breakfast choice is great - from kippers to porridge to full English breakfast. The dinners can be eaten in the restaurant or in the bar. The staff work hard and are responsive. Rothbury is a quiet town with lovely... More

From the moment we walked in the level of service was professional and friendly, especially the waitresses in the excellent restaurant. The food was of a high standard and we can particularly recommend the lamb rump and the chicken stuffed with haggis. Our room(no.23) was on the top floor and with it's newly decorated bathroom was of more than an... More

We stayed at The Queen's Head for one night as we walked St. Oswald's Way. A nice place in the process of being renovated by the looks of it. Rooms were clean tidy and pleasant and the beds were comfortable. We had a really nice meal here as well and the service was excellent. Not a 5 star place but... More
