We were booked into this hotel by our familiy so approached it "cold"! However, we got a pleasant double room amd the staff were most helpful and friendly. Breakfast was wonderful and prompt. We had one eveining meal which was of high quality. Better still the bar was serving "Rivet Catcher" real ale too. The location is ideal for exploring... More

This was a long promised chance to refresh memories of a visit to Alnwick a quarter century earlier and to extend our experience to more of the coast. Comfortable accommodation, dinner, bed & breakfast that defeated our ability to eat all provided, together with staff not only well trained but exceptionally warm & attentive helped make it a memorable stay....

We stayed for 7 nights in June, unable to book the room we wanted for 1st 2 nights so had a small room (number 7) which only had a standard size double bed which was not at all comfortable. As prearranged we moved to a larger room (number 6) with king size bed, much more comfortable. I have a large... More

Excellent accommodation in the Police Cottages over the road as the hotel was full. However, my walking companion was disappointed with the "medium" steak he was served. He returned it as it was more like rare. This part of the meal was reimbursed so everyone was happy.

Stayed in one of the Police cottages last week whilst completing the coast and castles cycle ride from Newcastle to Edinburgh with some friends. And we all agreed that the Dunstanburgh Castle Hotel was the best place we stayed. We were really made to feel at home when we arrived, the food in the bar was excellent, as was the... More

This was our first stay at the Dunstanburgh Castle Hotel and we will be back again soon. It is very clean and the staff are very attentive to your needs, especially Jimmy who on over hearing us discuss our trip to Alnwick Gardens appeared 5 minutes later with a printout off the internet. The hotel catered for my partners gluten... More

We have stayed at the Dunstanburgh Castle Hotel many times over the years, usually for a three night stay whilst we visit Cragside, Alnwick, coastal walks etc.. The rooms are more than adequate and well maintained, we prefer the village view ones which are more expensive. The food choices are good and well presented, the staff very friendly and attentive,...

We stayed at this hotel to allow us to explore for a couple of days after attending a family wedding at Middleton Hall. The Dunstanburgh is very clean and has everything you need for a short stay. The public lounge areas are a little old fashioned but comfortable. The restaurant is very good. We all had the veggie choices and... More

Friendly welcome (by a fellow Aussie working reception). Room small and basic but adequate. Hotel a little understaffed. Especially at breakfast where we were waiting a long time (15 to 20 mins) for the tea and coffee we ordered to arrive. The evening meal was very good though.

The Staff are very nice and capable. I left some garments and didn't realize until days later. They had kept them for me and had them waiting for me neatly organized. Also, I love the neighborhood, a great pub there and around the corner.
