The hotel deserves more than its 2 stars from AA (should probably be 3) and the staff were all very friendly BUT we were 2 adults and a 15 yr old in a 'family room'. The room appeared to be a double room with extra bed due to the position of the fixed over bed lighting etc. Made up only... More

I would not wish to put anyone off from visiting but, in all honesty, we were disappointed. We had booked two double rooms; for myself and husband, and my parents. We arrived to find that Guinness had been taken off the bar... and even worse, Timothy Taylor's Landlord (favourite beer of both husband and father) had also just been taken... More

Spent two nights at the hotel. Staff super friendly, food (breakfast and dinner) excellent and accommodation spacious and superb. The onion rings and sea bass were exceptional! The town is small and quaint and in a good spot for costal walks and exploring the wider areas - the beaches are also amazing!

This was a beautiful traditional Hotel. The service was outstanding. The cuisine was remarkable, best in the area if not the North East. Wildly recommend to anyone needing an indulgent, quiet break or retreat. Will definitely be returning soon.

Returning for another visit and thoroughly enjoyed our stay again. Many changes in staff compared to last year so a little less 'familiarity' but all staff helpful. A new head chef apparently so some new dishes on the menu along with quality favourites. Booked again for next year.

I stayed for 4 nights, with my little Westie. The hospitality is very good, with a warm welcome, friendly and helpful staff. The food, even for a vegetarian, is excellent quality, beautifully presented. I will return. A brilliant find.

we stayed in room 3 it was quite, clean, and the bathroom was very nice. The bed was very comfortable. wee had a couple of meals in the evening and they where good. The breakfast was good quality and just the right size, could have had cereal or porridge if I wanted more.

This place is in a beautiful part of Englandshire and a place you will never forget. The new Manager is an absolute card and the staff are first to get you everything to make your stay special. Their food is top notch and a very cosy bar to enjoy a light refreshment and a blether with some of the locals.... More

Stayed for several days with another couple. It was a good point for various excursions in beautiful Northumberland. Rooms, clearly recently redone, were quiet and comfortable. Food - dinner and breakfast - was fine although the selection for those who did not choose a cooked breakfast was very limited. WiFi in the Coffee Lounge was welcome. The staff was helpful... More
