5/5 Excellent

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Lovely spacious room... Warm and welcoming owner
The stay was amazing (we stayed 2 nights)... The room was very spacious, and was well equipped from all aspects. The bathroom was a little packed, but it was manageable (avoid if you plan on spending hours inside the bathroom :D). Jo was very warm and welcoming... We reached very early, and she already had the room ready, so we could check in without waiting.

3/5 Okay

Disliked: Room comfort
Deciding factor for me when booking somewhere is reviews and I cannot see why this establishment has such high scores. Plus factor was location. Within walking distance of everything in the town. Negatives - It was doubtful on booking if breakfast was provided so I asked for confirmation. Did not get a reply one way or the other so disappointed on arrival to find there was no breakfast (due to Covid). Resolved in that there were breakfast places nearby and at least we did not have to rush in the morning. Yes, there was parking for two vehicles outside the property but not for an estate car with tow bar because it hung over the pavement and therefore an obstruction. (Owner did point us in the direction of free parking nearby) The bedroom was snug on space, which we could have coped with had the bed not been short on length and therefore not comfortable for my 6ft 2" partner so he did not sleep well. Ensuite also cramped but good supply of toiletries. The room could have been better cleaned, especially in view of Covid. I moved the tissue box which had been cleaned round rather than under and the same could be said of the runners on the bedside tables. In conclusion was adequate at the time but would not recommend.

Disliked: Staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Being so close to the centre of Alnwick was very handy. We never actually saw the property owners, which seemed strange. Parking outside was very tight. The room was cold as heating was off. (it was early January)!! There were no extra blankets, nor a heater and no-one to speak to about this. The shower water was tepid. The bed was very uncomfortable and neither myself or my 10 year old daughter slept. I was woken at 12.40am by the people in the next room due to the walls being so thin. I have never left a bad review before but in this circumstance felt i needed to be 100% honest. I would like to suggest to the owners that they review exactly what it is they are offering. We feel very disappointed and to be quite frank, ripped off by our experience.

Close proximity to town centre and attractions. Off street parking in front of accommodation for small cars. Friendliness, knowledge and helpfulness of host. Rear 2 rooms that we had were quite.
