Very conveniently situated in the centre of the town and a short walk from the entrance to the castle. There was a slight mix-up with our booking on arrival. As friends travelling together, we'd booked a family room with the specification of single beds made at the time of booking but the guest house seemed to have different details and...

Friendly staff, good sized room and free parking outside. The breakfast was a good sized - perhaps a little greasy, but adequate. The bed was OK - it could have been more comfortable. The bathroom was small, but it worked fine and served the purpose.

My partner and I stayed here for 2 nights as we were attending a wedding at Alnwick gardens so chose this B&B based on its location as it was 5mins walk to the venue. I received a text message on the day of our arrival asking what time we would be arriving so we were a little surprised when there...

Our friends arrived before us. ..so Tracy the owner decided to give our room keys to them rather than wait to check us in. .This wouldn't have been a problem but the room was not the one we booked on Booking.com. It was too late to do anything about it as Tracy had gone to a birthday party with her...

The b&b is in a great location. It has three parking spaces out the front with a public parking bay across the road (we had no trouble parking). The room was a good size and the en-suite was really nice. The shower was hot and had good pressure (not always a given). The breakfast was lovely. Cooked to order. Real...

Lovely place to stay, with modern room. When I booked on line there was only a twin room available so imagine our surprise when we got to the large room to find we had a double and single beds available. There is on street parking available. Breakfast was lovely but was spoilt by another guest talking so loudly that we...

We arrived in Alnwick and were having trouble finding a room as there was a wedding in town. We knocked on the door here, but no one answered. When calling about a different B&B, the woman who owned it took us back there and let us in, so it was an unstaffed building. The bed was so uncomfortable. There were...

I am a local who now lives in the North West. I visit "home" regularly and usually stay at my parents' home but, on this, occasion due to overcrowding for a family celebration my partner and I stayed for 2 nights at Castle Gate. Booking was simple and contact with Tracey the owner was easy. Due to our arrival late...

Stayed for two nights , when we visited Alnwick recently .Room was clean and reasonably sized although a little garish for my tastes. Breakfast was good and cooked by friendly staff although only served between 8-9pm which when on holiday is too early.The big problem for me was the lack of privacy and noise from other guests.Our walls were plasterboard...
