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.

Wanting a base for a few days walking with our one year old Cocker Spaniel, we stayed here for three nights. We were bowled over by the friendliness of the welcome - a young lady came out to the car to meet out dog and even offered to help us in with the luggage! We had booked a larger room...

My wife and I spent three nights here with our two dogs - how welcoming to find a hotel that makes dogs so welcome. The rooms (we moved for the last night) were spacious and quiet and the food excellent. Most importantly the staff without exception were warm, friendly and efficient and nothing was too much trouble! What a welcome...

This has become like a second home from us over the last 20 years. Staff are tremendous and some years we go twice or even tree times. Food very good and aways exellent beer on tap. Vicki and Mick are great hosts and a super base to visit other lovely parts of this coast like Craster and Bamburgh.
