I stayed for one night over the bank holiday weekend, received a warm welcome and the room was large and comfortable. I didn't have any food, but did have a very comfortable night's sleep. I felt the stay was good value for money and I would stay again.

Had a 1 night stay here May 2015. Not really got a bad word to say about it. Staff are lovely, Food was great, bedding was very clean. Nothing better than crisp white sheets. Service very good. Plenty real ales to choose from to keep the beer drinkers happy. Plenty parking. One thing we didn't like was how hot the... More

We were kicked out of the house by our eldest son as he wanted his mates to join him to watch boxing on sky (through the night)! So we looked for a last minute deal for a 1 night stay close by (we live in Newcastle) The Queens Head in Rothbury looked ok, so we booked there. We has a... More

We stayed one night when walking the Inn Way. I chose it because the bus stop is outside to Cragside, Alnwick & Alnmouth station! The rooms are dated but seem to be undergoing refurbishment, the dining room is good.

Stayed two nights for a friend`s wedding. Not sure when we first arrived...Reception?? turned out to be a busy but pleasant barman. Creaky stairs and uneven passageways but room, although a little cramped, was cosy and full of character. Bed was very comfortable which personally, is a must. Didn`t have an evening meal but breakfast was excellent. Real, proper old... More

We've stayed in Rothbury on several occasions, sometimes with friends, sometimes at the Queens Head. The village is fantastic for a break away - friendly, welcoming, and one of those few places where you feel yourself relaxing as soon as you've arrived. It's peaceful, with great Northumerland scenery in directions around, but at the same time, the local establishments are... More

I booked this hotel through a "matched" Living Social or Groupon deal (can't remember which), and found it absolutely great value for money! The hotel is more of a big old pub with rooms - 7 letting rooms - with a breakfast room and separate restaurant, right on the main street in Rothbury. I booked for a group of 14... More

Settled on the Queens Head as our base whilst we revisited old haunts in Northumberland. Room was spacious & comfortable and the bathroom, albeit on the small side, perfectly adequate. Limited offering on the cold buffet table but very good choice on the hot breakfast menu. Food arrived promptly and was well presented & tasty. Staff were friendly & helpful... More
