Positive Reviews

Wonderfully stylish and comfortable

The County Hotel was refurbished in 2015 and you'll notice that the stylish design has retained many of the period details, whilst offering all the conveniences of a modern bed and breakfast, which guests really like. Fresh and comfortable beds are dressed with chic linens and rooms feel clean and well thought-out, providing you with everything you need for a chic, 4-star experience.

Breakfast is spot on

If you've got a big country walk planned during your stay in Hexham, the breakfast at this hotel will set you up nicely for it. As this is a B&B, breakfast is included in the room rate, making life nice and easy. Guests really enjoy both the full English and continental options as well as  the room in which this meal is served.

A charming staff

Providing you with a traditionally friendly pub welcome, the staff at this hotel makes a great impression on many satisfied guests. Pleasant and helpful, the team members can give you local information and recommendations and ensure you are comfortable during your stay with them.

Negative Reviews

The bar can be noisy

If you're a light sleeper you may want to request a room away from the bar area at The County Hotel as some guests have mentioned that they were disrupted by music in the evenings.

No on-site car parking

Unfortunately, there is no on-site car parking at this hotel and some guests were frustrated at having to park  at The Wentworth, which is a short walk away.

Little details are needed

A very small number of guests mentioned that their experiences would have been improved if the bathrooms had some storage space like shelves to store their toiletries and hooks to hang towels on.
