A small but clean and friendly place right in the centre of town. The owner was very friendly (and an excellent cook at breakfast). My only negative was the small bathroom but this did not detract from the overall experience. Well worth a stay.

OK, so arrived, good location, lovely old stone building on the main street leading to the Hotspur Gate. Large room facing the...

Breakfast was good, plenty of it. Very attentive staff, great value for money, and excellent location for Alnwick and travelling to surrounding areas. On occasion, bit noisy in the morning staying above kitchen and room was a little on the small side but nothing that would stop us coming back.

A warm friendly welcome though a little confusion over the booking was quickly dealt with. The room was comfortable and nicely decorated. Slept really well in a great big bed. Bathroom could do with a little tlc to the ceiling. Breakfast room was cramped but breakfast was tasty and hot. Stayed for 2 nights as close to all attractions. Tracy...

Me and my daughter stayed for 3 night. The room was the family room on the 1st floor. Room itself wasn't bad but no storage. A very small wardrobe. The bathroom is tiny. The room did get drafty with the old windows. Really needs updating. Breakfast not bad. But the day we left a mat had been left on the...

Very small room, minute bathroom. Security almost non-existent in that front door key left under mat for arrival (not a late arrival) and room key in door. So small that you could hear other guests moving around etc. Dining room furniture was old and tatty, and very cramped. BUT breakfast was good. Not keen on being asked to pay cash....

Friendly and helpful owner. Rooms clean and bed very comfortable. Usual tea making facilities and well stocked. Even a teapot! Breakfast was fresh cooked, hot and plentiful. I also got caught out with the parking. Bashed the underside of my car even at a virtual standstill, so be careful.

The heating had been put on for our arrival and our room was warm and cosy for...
