Friendly young staff and in a very central location. Room was clean but very small and cramped. Sleeping was difficult because of noise from pub and traffic. Breakfast was very good. Definitely a case of you get what you pay for.

There is a small car park at the side of the hotel. We ended up parking in a public car park just behind the hotel, but it's free.

Well, next time we come to England, we will be stopping by to visit. Perhaps have a pint of Guinness and a bite to eat.

An ancient and historic pub, where Robbie Burns once slept, offering a warm Northumbrian welcome and great local food - try our fabulously fresh fish and chips, or delicious beef sourced from a farm just down the road.Service with a smile and a relaxed and comfortable meal waits for you - there's been an inn on this site for around 600 years so why not call in and take a break - we serve food from 12 noon until 9 pm seven days a week.
