We booked a table at the Queen's Head for dinner on our last night of a 2 week holiday in Scotland. After two attempts to provide a rare rump steak I was feeling nauseous at the over cooked leathery offering. For the first time in my life I was unable to continue with the meal. The manageress was defensive to... More

Hello, I am very sorry that you thought your steak was overcooked, obviously we did not charge for it. I understand that the waitress misheard you when she took the order and that the first steak was overcooked for your'e liking, but it was replaced with a second steak which you refused also, when it came back up to the...

Had a great 2 day break. Accomodation very comfy and clean. We were in room 15 which looked out onto the main road so expected some traffic noise but it was fairly quiet. Rooms were refreshed and bed made the next day, even PJs put in bed. Food was excellent would like to stay longer to try out all the... More

When we arrived I did feel a little concerned, but room was clean and we actually had the best two nights sleep of our holiday. Our breakfast especially the second day was also best we have had on our tour of Northumberland. Staff were mostly very helpful and obliging. So all I would say is give The Queens Head a... More

Day 6 of St Oswalds Way. Obviously a favorite for local folks. Packed in the evening with a function. Always a good sign. Bedroom 3 was excellent - recently refurbished and dining room also suitably refurbished. All meals very good and service with a smile.

Carpets were dirty and threadbare and bar area badly needs updating. Room wasn't too bad and bed was clean, but didn't change towels or Hoover carpet. Breakfast was a disgrace, food burnt and sausage raw inside. Worst place we have ever stayed. Would never go back again.

I have contacted this lady regarding her review as I cannot find her booking. I dont understand the comment about the carpets, we have no dirty threadbare carpets, we change towels when asked as per our room folder information. Two reviews on the same day with totally differing views, the joy of trip advisor. :) More

We stayed for two nights at the end of a tour of Northumberland. The hotel is in desperate need of a facelift. On the way to our room, there was an area where the wallpaper had been removed and plaster lay on the carpet. During our stay this was never hoovered. Our room was not serviced properly. The bed was... More

Hello Julie, I am sorry you feel you were dealt with in a rude manner, there was a misunderstanding between the staff and the drinks were added to your bill in error.
