2/5 Poor

Disliked: Staff & service, property conditions & facilities
Over-priced. We stayed another night in a different pub just outside Alnwick for half the price, with breakfast included, and it was much better. You’re paying for the location, but for the sake of driving ten minutes out of town it isn’t worth it. The room was big, but the bathroom was very dated, and the bar area etc felt quite tacky. Also the staff weren’t particularly friendly or engaged - there was definitely a ‘doing the bare minimum’ attitude. When we checked in the girl asked if we were eating that evening, and when we said we weren’t sure, she assured us that they would keep a table for us. What she didn’t mention is that everything in Alnwick is closed on a Monday. When we arrived back at the hotel at 10 past 8, having failed to find any food, we were told that the kitchen had stopped serving food. No apologies or attempts to come up with a solution. So we ended up having takeaway chips on a bench outside. When we checked out the manager apologised and offered us a discount. But don’t think we’ll be staying there again!

Clean, comfortable, great value
Very comfortable room in a great location. Staff were very accommodating with my pretty late check-in time. The car park is behind the hotel is a tight squeeze for larger cars.

Comfortable stay In Alnwick centre
The Plough is just outside Alnwick Centre and very convenient for the town but also hitting the road to go elsewhere. The room I was in was comfortable and service was great. The room itself was very small but contained everything I needed. Including breakfast might be good but this might have been the result of fierce competition in Alnwick for accommodation in the week I stayed.
