The George is situated in a beautiful position with beautiful gardens and an easy walk to parts of Hadrians Wall and Chesters Roman Fort. The hotel however ,despite parts being up -dated is rather "sad " in places and spoils the whole historic character. A tip, you need a map and compass to find your room but i suppose it builds your appetite for the really excellent meals. The food was so very good and the waiting staff were speedy and we must commend Anika and her team ,who were cheerful all the time even for our 6a.m breakfast as we had to leave by 7a.m! Our bathroom must have been the original from when Baden Powell used to stay .Brass taps (of which one was broken and gave such dangerous hot water with no warning.The Brass shower was awful fortunately it was warm weather so the cool shower i attempted to have was o.k.
The mattress were not too good and uncomfortable but it was the hard pillows i hated and despite a member of staff trying to find a softer pillow they could not find. The pool and the surrounding buildings need a make-over and a good paint.
Despite my grumbles we had an excellent holiday and would return to the hotel if we had the chance.
- 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
