Got to the hotel and thought not bad, but as soon as you leave the reception area it goes down hill fairly fast. The corridors were a bit ropey as you creaked your way down and the carpet was thread bare in places. The room wasn't to bad, but the en suite was dirty. Having a shower and the water didn't drain away from the bath quick enough and around the toilet was rough where it had been pulled out and stuffed back in on the cheap.
The hotel said free wifi, however you can only get this in the reception area not the room.
The gym was filthy and in bad need of repair. The jacuzzi was luke warm and full of sediment, which was blown round the jacuzzi and stuck to your body when you got out. Of the two showers in the changing room one was broken the other cold.
Another large pile of sediment in pool.
Broken door in the sauna, have to pull on a bare screw to close it.
Some gym equipment was out of order.
Vending machines totally empty, if a vending machine is totally empty then it's been like that for a while!
All in all pretty poor and for the money you'd be better staying else where.

- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Set in a beautiful river front location, just five miles from the market town of Hexham, the George at Chollerford is a historic building dating back to the 1700's renowned for its fine food and hospitality. It is great to have such a history behind the hotel as we feel we are doing an excellent job of keeping the tradition going, but we have also spent a lot of money upgrading a number of facilities in the hotel including the leisure club, with its swimming pool and gym, situated west of Newcastle we are in ideal spot for walkers, history buffs and gardeners alike - you will be spoilt for choice. The hotel is a perfect retreat in a location that we consider to be one of the most relaxing in Northumbria. ... more less
