Hotel excellent in nice setting

Posted 03-Aug-2015
Pros: Everything.
Cons: Perfect as it is.
Location: Only stayed one night before visiting Alnwick.
Hotel was comfortable with Early Bird dinner very good value. Good selection of real ales and wines in a lovely setting. Breakfast menu excellent where we were spoilt with choice. Staff friendly and helpful. No complaints we had a wonderful time.

Pros: Hotel accommodation was a bit basic 'travel lodgish', and I thought it expensive for what it was.
The pub and restaurant were very nice, good choice of food and well prepared, but accommodation was disappointing.

A brilliant central place for a short break

Lovely country Inn just off the A1 very convenient for the main castles and Coast. The food was excellent, particularly the choices for breakfast. The room was rather lacking in storage however. Being on the ground floor we we awakened by delivery vans who parked outside our window !

Great place to visit

Posted 07-Apr-2015
Pros: Everything
Cons: Creaky bedroom floors
We stopped for 2 nights, extending to 3 because it was so lovely. A good place for a base for visiting Northumberland. Great friendly staff and delicious food.

Great service

Posted 19-Mar-2015
Pros: Comfortable and friendly.
Cons: Was satisfied with everything.
Location: It's a country inn so not a lot to do in the close vicinity. Not far from Alnwick. Cragside (National Trust) at Rothbury definitely worth a visit.
Room was great and the bar was very cosy. Food was really good as was the service and friendliness of the staff.
