The Queens Head
Ranked #4 of 11 Rothbury B&B and Inns
Reviewed December 6, 2013

Me and my Girlfriend stayed here on the 5th of December 2013. What a very friendly pub this is and the atmosphere is brilliant! Our room was lovely and the decor was up to date, it was also very clean and cosy. The breakfast was delicious and set us up for our journey home. How can anyone say anything bad about this place? We always check out the comments on places before we go and there was a few which were so petty! Rothbury its self was so nice, we loved the place and the pubs were all like The Queens Head - greeted with a friendly welcome! We will definitely be going back here. Highly recommended!!!

Room Tip: Our room was 16.

Stopped on a Groupon and we were treated very well, we never once felt like we were any different to full paying customers, after a very warm welcome we were shown to a nice pleasant room with a spacious bathroom, in the morning we had a generous Northumberland breakfast, very nice
We would recommend it to anyone.

Got a groupon for this hotel that included room and breakfast and 20% off 3 course dinner. For what we paid this was excellent. The hotel is in the sleepy village of Rothbury, that has some nice small shops and tea rooms and is quite pretty, although not that much to do. The hotel itself is in the Queens Head pub, the staff were very friendly and the bar area had a nice atmosphere. Our room was a decent size, clean & cosy. The bed was very comfortable. it was quiet and we both slept well. Dinner was nice, and very reasonably priced. Breakfast was excellent. Id recommend.

Right from the start we knew we were onto a winner. A handy size car park then a very friendly and warm welcome. Room was very nice and spotlessly clean. Also the heating was on and it was really warm. Lovely bed, nice quilt, ace TV, terrific shower, bath etc with lots of piping hot water. When settled in we went down to the bar. 4 real ales on and 3 of them we had not heard of before. When I got my first pint, it was a delight. It was served up really naturally, not through one of those fizz nozzles. The temperature was perfect and the ale was in perfect condition. I duly through the day tried all of them and they were all spot on. There was a welcoming fire in the bar area too. In the evening we tested out the restaurant. It was a very nice room and the waitress's were really terrific as was the bar attendant. They all knew what they were doing and could answer any query instantly. The food was a total delight. The wine list did not particularly suit us as we drink a lot of French wine and there was not much of that on the list. Breakfast, in a different room was once again about perfect. Just one suggestion here, we had to ask for the toast. But when we got it, there was plenty of it. All I can say is, we will be back and thank you.

Room Tip: All rooms OK. If at the front it is a very quiet road.
