My husband and I along with my Father have stayed in this wonderful hotel several times. We love the location as it is a short drive away from the quaint market town of Hexham where everyone is friendly and make you feel so welcome. If you feel like a drive just a little further along the road, Newcastle has a lovely shopping centre and many dining places to suit all varieties of taste. Chollerford, itself is a small village, again with very welcoming, friendly locals to pass the time of day with. It is an excellent place to stay for the many backpackers who are walking along the side of Hadrians Wall. While staying in The George, we had the use of the fitness centre and swimming pool/jaccuzzi/sauna which is very relaxing. Access can be from inside the hotel or from the lovely garden area.There are benches and tables in the garden where you can sit and relax at the river side. The bedrooms have been refurbished since we last visited, as has the dining room but even before the changes, we always had very nice rooms where we slept well and the dining room was lovely then too with food prepared and presented beautifully by the chef and restaurant staff. Reception have always been so helpful and accommodating. I certainly can't praise the hotel, staff and area highly enough and hope to return in the near future.

- 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
