Spent 2 nights at this hotel with friends (and our large dog). So friendly and very comfortable. Food good, nice lounges and cosy bar. Staff were terrific. Dog was spoiled and so were we! Love the area and the beaches are superb. Shame about the weather - but it was November. Will be back, hopefully when the sun shines, to...

Usual excellence from this small, traditional, family run hotel! This was our fifth annual visit and it seems to be as good, if not better every time. The staff are very friendly and helpful and the food, both quality and quantity, is first class! We will definitely return!

Third stay at Dunstanburgh Castle Hotel. Recommended it to friends as well. Street view room is lovely. Pity the restaurant does not cover simple bar meals as opposed to a la carte menu. Guests would not be tempted to go to the village pubs or further afield. "Autumn fireside breaks" are advertised, however, not a welcoming fire was seen.

Stayed here for three nights and couldn't fault it. Room was a standard - clean and cosy. We ate here every night and enjoyed every meal including the 3 courses as part of dinner, bed and breakfast. All the staff were really friendly and helpful and our dog was made very welcome.
