We have stayed in Rothbury now on a couple of occasions and the Queens Head is a very pleasant place to stay. Very clean, lovely food and a snug bar where the locals are very welcoming. It is a great place to stay and ideal for maybe stopping when doing the new Sandstone Way bike ride which opens this year.

There was no one on reception when we arrived, when I asked what time they had so down for dinner (which was average) they were an hour out... More

Hi, Thank you for leaving your review I am very disappointed that you did not enjoy your stay, The bed in room 14 is less than 6 months old with a firm pocket sprung mattress. We have had no complaints at all about it until now. I may have to consider a mattress topper for those who don't like a... More

Our twin room was on the third floor and a bit of a trek. Beds were comfy but room was somewhat shabby and bathroom rather bare and basic. Food was fine and folk were friendly so we would stay here again. Location was central in Rothbury

Booked via living social. Communication was excellent via email. Staff friendly and helpful. Bedroom was well decorated and the bed was really comfy. Bath could've been a bit deeper but I can appreciate it must cost a great deal to fill everyone's bath. Fab views of the hills. Stayed for dinner. Service was a little slow but it was valentines...

Stayed last Friday night on a Living Social deal. Lovely room, great parking, cosy bar area, bed so comfortable. Friendly staff and locals. Would definitely stay again anytime. Great child-free night in a lovely little village.

Stayed with my husband on Friday 23/1/15, one night stay on Living social deal. We found the staff all very friendly, welcoming and helpful. Warm, clean room with comfortable beds. Good food and great conversation in bar with bar staff and other couples staying there. Would definitely stay again and recommend to others.

Hello, Thanks for the lovely review, sorry you found the mattress too hard, they were really expensive with 2000 pocket springs but are quite firm. I do hope you come and stay again, we have mattress toppers, so just ask.. Thanks again Teresa More
