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

We just stayed for one night bed and breakfast but what a lovely night it was. The room was very modern looking. Tony the barman made us feel at home. They have a very good selection of real ales. In the evening we had a meal in the hotel. We had potato and leek soup to start with, I had... More

Spent a Night here recently on a Travelzoo deal which turned out to be great value for money, it's an old building with warm welcoming staff, shown to our room which was a little dated and would have benefitted from a picture or 2 ideally of some of the many beautiful local attractions. The room was cold initially due to... More

My wife and I stayed here recently for a chill after a busy week. We were on a voucher deal which, as our stay started, became better and better. Easy parking at the hotel followed by a quick check-in got us off to a good start. We were taken to a good sized room on the second floor with a... More

Good location with free parking. Large clean / comfortable room. No noise could be heard in our room from the bar areas down stairs. A very tasty and excellent breakfast which came quickly. Would come again without a doubt. Staff polite & very helpful.

I have stayed at the Queens twice now, the first time was a few years previous. I have enjoyed both my stays at the Queens. It has the looks of faulty towers without the terrible service.

This is not the Ritz but then again we did not pay 'the Ritz money'. Entered the building from the rear and thought Mmm what have we come to but then things changed when we were greeted very professionally by Tony. The place is basic and if we are honest a bit tired but it's clean, the bedding was clean... More
