Hexham Courant readers have reacted to the reopening of The George Hotel.

The George Hotel, Chollerford, near Hexham, reopened in May after owners The Specialist Leisure Group entered administration.

But the popular hotel has benefited from a bumper summer season which has seen it bounce back to its former glory.

By the end of August, the hotel had served 6,190 breakfasts to 6,880 guests.

“Looking back on what we’ve achieved in the last few months is always a rewarding feeling, but when you put some numbers on it, it just makes it all the more eye-opening”, said general manager, Carl Sunley.

“In hospitality, you’re often very much focused on looking after the in-house guests, so you can easily forget just how many people you’ve looked after over a period of weeks and months.

“To think that we’ve had more than 6,000 guests in already since reopening really underlines how much the hotel and destination has to offer and how hard the hotel team has worked, while also offering great positivity for the future.”

Lisa Mackey said "My husband and I visited here just for an afternoon drink on our way home a month or so ago.

"It was lovely..couldn't fault staff and it was lovely just sitting in the gardens next to the river..wasn't overpriced either.

"Yes it's in need of updating but we could not fault it in any way."

Zoë Parker-Smissen also said: "Such a wonderful location and amazing potential."

Jane Garrett and Victoria Strassheim talked about the future at the hotel and said: "Just think if they offered sauna and afternoon tea for the river swimmers!"
