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... More

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.... More

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. More

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... More

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... More

This has got to be the best B&B I have ever stayed in. No faults at all. Audrey and Tom were very friendly lovely biscuits on the tea tray. Great breakfast will stay again if I am up there again. Loved the fridge on the landing with milk and water.
