Good Hotel Guide Review
Facing the park in the historic market town, this ‘bustling’ town house hotel is liked for its ‘unfailingly welcoming, helpful and friendly’ staff. ‘It clearly has a good local reputation.’ It is owned by Roger Davy, a Hexham native, and his wife, Magda, who run it with ‘energy and commitment to high standards’. The Victorian building is lively with pleasingly mismatched fabrics and colourful local artwork; bright, refurbished bedrooms are supplied with essential-oil toiletries. In the smart, open-plan bar/lounge/restaurant on the ground floor, ‘the food and service represent excellent value for money’. Here, ‘interesting and varied’ dishes might include an ‘impressive’ courgette and goat’s curd risotto. ‘Good coffee at breakfast, too.’
