“Well located comfortable cottage”
Reviewed 4 weeks ago for a stay in October 2018

Comfortable, homely, self-catering cottage in Embleton in great location for the lovely coastal walks nearby. The cottage is very well equipped with everything we needed and is very peaceful. The village shop is a real bonus too. Would definitely stay here again.

“The Old Police House”
Reviewed 18 October 2018 for a stay in October 2018

Grand spot for a weekend away with 6 adults, 1 baby and 1 dog. We stayed in the Police House for 3 days and really enjoyed it – especially enjoyed sitting round the kitchen table in the kitchen tailor made for group gathering away. Unfortunately, the weather was too mild to really make use of the log burner, but that does add character to the place, plus the bedrooms are all a good size and our bed in the en-suite room was huge. A comfortable, well- appointed cottage in easy reach of all the numerous local attractions - we've visited Embleton and its environs many times whilst staying in the area, but it was lovely to be in the middle as it’s a pleasant little village and the cottage is lovely. Plus there is a well stocked shop 100 yards down the road for any provisions you may have forgotten.

As alluded to in previous comments, a word of warning on the parking – we used two spaces as instructed and chose the two obvious ones closest to the front of the Police House, avoiding the side areas as these were being used by the village and hotel. Unfortunately our first evening was rather spoilt by the insolent, ill-mannered and impolite behaviour of the member of staff from the Dunstanburgh hotel, who came across to demand , in a very abrupt and completely unnecessarily discourteous manner (as if we had repeatedly ignored some previous, non-existent instructions) that we move our cars to the side. In the event, due to the other cars parked there already, we had to leave one at the front. Rather a shame, as the rest of the hotel staff were brilliant, helpful and very professional; we were planning on eating at the hotel on at least one of the nights, but changed our minds as a result and ate elsewhere. I was informed later that this was in fact the hotel manager - I dread to think how he behaves with his staff if this is his manner with customers!

“Lovely 4 Nights at Number 1”
Reviewed 12 October 2018 for a stay in October 2018

Four of us stayed at one of the Police Cottages after experiencing 'Dune' earlier in the year.
Check-in was quick and we had a round of drinks in the comfortable hotel lounge as we had arrived a tad early.
The Cottage was clean and tidy and both bedrooms are identical with the added benefit of en-suite bathrooms.
The whole property was lovely and warm and the open plan kitchen and living room was more than ample for my wife and I, together with my eldery parents to sit back and relax after hearty meals across in the hotel bar and round the corner at The Greys Inn.
My only negative points of observation were that the showers were in a slightly awkward position above the bath and could I suggest that the two parking bays per cottage are identified in some way? The residents in the Police House had 4 vehicles and were occupying one of the spaces for the three cottages. Might have posed a problem if the whole set of properties had been full.
That said, I would highly recommend this accomodation and my mum left with great memories...which was the entire object if the exercise.
Thank You Dunstanburgh Castle Hotel.

We would firstly like to thank you for the time you have taken to write and post your review of the Police House cottage at The Dunstanburgh Castle Hotel. We are always grateful for our guest’s comments and are continually striving to improve. I understand your concern about the number of cars some cottages had during your stay, we always tell guests that there are only two spaces per cottage with any extra needing to be parked at the hotel, but trust it did not spoil your enjoyment too much. We are delighted that you enjoyed your visit with us and hope to see you again very soon.

“Excellent cottage, well equipped and great location! Pet friendly.”
Reviewed 30 September 2018 for a stay in September 2018

The Old Police House.This cottage is the best we have stayed in, the furnishings and decor were first class, the kitchen was equipped with everything you could possibly want. The added bonus was the hotel being just over the road, they did a take away service and we also went across for dinner. The food in the hotel was outstanding and the staff were very helpful. My husband had a senior moment with the kettle and unfortuanately broke it, the staff were great asking if he was ok. Plenty of walks in the area to Craster one way and Newton by the Sea the other way, we will definitely be returning and if we could give this cottage 6 stars we would.
