We stayed for 2 nights last weekend, from the moment we arrived all the staff were very friendly and helpful. We took our Labrador puppy and she was made welcome too. The family room was nice and had everything you needed. Yes the hotel is a little dated but that added to its charm, it was however very clean and... More

Excellent hotel with very friendly and helpful staff. Great accommodation and plenty of room for the dog. Will stay again. Good breakfast and a fantastic choice. Bar was also good with a great selection of local beers.

We stayed in No 1 Police cottages and had a great break. The cottages are just over the road from the hotel and are perfect if you are a little family. Very well set up with tea coffee etx plus dishwasher washing machine etc. Two twin rooms and bathrooms all nicely made up. Beds weren't too hard and we all... More

Visit started with a lovely welcome by a delightfully friendly young lady who got us booked in and showed us to our room, which was quite large, clean and comfortable. Breakfast the following morning was delicious and the service was quick and efficient, and that remained the case for the rest of our stay. A beautiful location, within walking distance... More

We visit the Dunstanburgh Hotel on an annual basis in Springtime. It is an excellent family run hotel with great food and very friendly service. The hotel is very clean and the rooms are kept to a very high standard. The location is also perfect for a relaxing and peaceful holiday, very close to miles and miles of beautiful coastline...

Stayed in the police cottages for 2 nights and had a great few days. The cottages are dog friendly and we brought our two dogs. The cottage was modern, spacious and clean with two double en suite bedrooms. The kitchen was fully furnished with a dishwasher, appliances and cutlery and would be amazing for self-catered guests. We had breakfast and... More

A lovely warm welcome on arrival and a very comfortable room. We ate in the restaurant both nights and the food was fantastic as were the staff. We will definitely be back again with the family to make the most of fantastic location on the coast.

My husband and I returned to cottage accommodation at the hotel after a relaxing and memorable break two years ago. We have also acquired a dog in the interim so the dog welcome sign had appeal. We knew the walks nearby are spectacular and the welcome at the hotel warm and friendly. Everything lived up to our expectations. Great food,... More
