Fantastic Bed and Breakfast. Audrey and Tom were the perfect hosts. So many special touches which I have never come across before. Wine glasses on the landing, should you travel with your 'bedroom bar' which I always do!!! Makes a nice change from having to drink wine from the water glasses left in the bathroom! A complimentary 'night cap' in...

All the good things that people have written about Greycroft are absolutely true (and there are only good things to say). Audrey and Tom are indeed wonderful hosts, very interesting people and great fun. They have thought of everything for the comfort, convenience and utter spoiling of their guests. Everything is top quality and the breakfasts are to die for...

This is one of the best B&Bs I have visited. It is in the town centre around 100 metres up a smallish road and is very quiet. It may be helped by the fact that it is across the road from the police station. We were warmly greeted by Audrey on arrival who gave us a lot of useful information....

I came here with my friend for a couple of days. We brought along our knitting and we were very comfortable in the spacious lounge, knitting, chatting and having a sip of the complimentary sherry! Our twin room was large, excellent facilities and so clean. The small fridge on the huge landing, containing complimentary waters and room for if we...

You can quite easily see why this B&B comes out 1st for Alnwick! From the moment we arrived to a friendly welcome to when we reluctantly left everything was amazing.

Shhh... don't mention the veggie sausages or everyone will want them (though I think I'm going to have to do another batch very soon as they are proving popular)! We're glad that you enjoyed your time and very much hope to see you both again soon.

Fantastic B&B. Great from start to finish. Audrey and Tom make a great team. Breakfast was delicious. So many thoughtful touches in bedroom and throughout. Can't recommend enough. Great position in Alnwick.

From the moment of booking to our day of departure, we could not have wished for better service. Audrey was so lovely and chatty on the phone when I initially rang, that I just knew we were going to have a wonderful stay at Greycroft. We were certainly not disappointed. As soon as we arrived, we were greeted warmly with...

An excellent B & B in a great location. Our room was very comfortable, spacious, well equipped and beautifully decorated and furnished. Audrey and Tom are fantastic hosts with a wealth of local knowledge. Breakfast is superb with a wide choice (their eggs benedict are second to none). I can not fault anything at Greycroft, highly recommended.

Everything from the tea and greeting on arrival, rooms, fantastic breakfasts thoughtful detail ( fridge on landing , maps, port, etc etc) cannot be improved. I stay at many so called 5 star hotels that don't match what you get here. Most of all it is the amiability and bonhomie from Audrey and Tom. You just have to feel better...
