We have just returned from four nights at Oronsay Guest House and can thoroughly recommend it. The premises have been thoroughly renovated by hosts Charles and Chris to a high standard. Our room was clean, spacious, comfortable and well appointed. The breakfasts were brilliant. Chris is a great cook, and the choice was very wide ranging, in a warm and...

Off-street parking, great room and breakfast with a view. Very close to Barter Book, 5 minutes walk from Alnwick Gardens and the castle. 5 minutes to several restaurants and the town square. 6 minutes to the launderette.

Stayed here for 4 nights B&B. I have nothing but praise for the room and the proprietors. The room was clean, with tea/coffee making facilities, biscuits and bottled water every day. Charles and Christine were extremely efficient, courteous and friendly. However I've saved the best while last. The breakfast, absolutely amazing. We had to state our choices the day before,...

Stayed for four nights with a small cycling group and enjoyed great hospitality from the owners. I had the large "suite" which, though not quite a suite (room, hall and bathroom), was huge, immaculately clean and well furnished. Breakfast very good indeed. Not cheap but worth the price. Highly recommended.

This is a guest house rather than a hotel but it is extremely well run by Charles and Christina Scott. The room I had was immaculate with everything you could reasonably want in such an establishment. Bathroom was spotless with thick lovely towels and the electric shower worked well. Breakfast needs to be ordered the evening before but the cooking...

We stayed four nights at Oronsay house recently and thoroughly enjoyed every minute.Charles & Christine are excellent hosts and made us both feel very welcome. We had the large room at the front of the house which was excellent and, although this looked onto the main road, any traffic noise didn't disturb us. The bedroom and bathroom were spotless as,...

First time visiting Alnwick, but certainly not the last. My single room was nice and clean, there is Wifi, which almost always worked, even on the last floor. Breakfast was very good, the special marmalade from a local shop was delicious. There is parking behind the house, and it is very conveniently located to visit the Gardens and the castle...
