Really disappointed our stay here. The Chef had been very lazy in the preparation of our evening meal. The watercress haven't been prepped properly and had woody stalks, there was a piece of cartilage found in the chicken pate, there were fishbones in the fillet of sea bass and the pizza dough was very undercooked, so much so that it...

Nice hotel near the river and shops in Rothbury. All the staff were very pleasant and the food was lovely with big portions. The only thing was not being informed about breakfast times which we found out over hearing another guest asking.

We learnt, when we found a member of staff, that they had taken over this hotel in August and it's interesting to note that the vast majority of low scoring reviews are from before this period. However some points just keep cropping up.....like the unstaffed reception - Coquetvale get yourselves a bell - it would be so much better than...

As last minute decision we tried this restaurant. .We were surprised there were no other diners in. However we weren't disappointed with the quality of food although there was no creamed cabbage as described on the menu. This was a decision maker. The veg on every meal seemed to be the same?

Many thanks for your honest feedback. Really pleased that you enjoyed your impromptu Sunday lunch and I do note your comments regards selection of vegetables - will revisit this with Chef. We do tend to get busier later on a Sunday, encouraged by the fact that we continue serving our "Sunday lunch " until mid evening. Hope that we may...

Returned to the Coquetvale for a two night stay. Once again the whole visit was great, since we visited earlier this year the hotel has had all the windows replaced, a good improvement. Our room was very large and very comfy, as we had our dog with us the extra space was an asset. The new owners said they had...

We stayed here whilst visiting nearby Cragside - an outstanding National Trust estate. This hotel has improved under its new management, and the finishing touches to the bedrooms is calm, relaxing and beautiful. We stayed in room 1 and had a wonderful time.
