We have stayed at this hotel many many times over several years, and would recommend it to anyone wishing to explore beautiful northumberland. The hotel is very clean,the staff are superb and the food is first class. We just wish the hotel could introduce a loyalty scheme which could give a free break when you have stayed so many times!!!... More

We had two very comfortable nights at this very friendly and welcoming hotel and enjoyed excellent dinners in the restaurant. The breakfasts are good but not quite at the same level as the dinners.Embleton Bay (wonderful beach) is ten minutes walk.

We stayed for a three night DBB deal and were very pleased. The staff are very friendly, work hard but also seem to really care about doing a good job and making sure you have a good stay. Not something that can be said of hotel staff elsewhere. The decor and furnishings are comfy, tidy and well maintained, though not... More

Embleton is a charming village with a historic church and vicar's pele not far from a beautiful Northumberland beach. Named after the splendid castle that crowns the bay, this hotel is a favourite where we have stayed many times. The Germans would call it gemütlich: warm, welcoming, homely. The rooms are well appointed, the beds comfortable and the food first... More

We stayed here as we had seen their Winter Warmer breaks advertised. They seemed very good value as included "Free" dinner in with the price. Actually there were supplements on some of the more expensive ingredients but it is possible to have an excellent meal choosing only non supplement dishes. The quality of the food was excellent with high quality... More

Spent a four day holiday in late November, most comfortable, great food with lots of good locally produced produce. Add really helpful and pleasant staff making this a lovely base to see some of the best areas in Northumberland. Look forward to a return visit

Stayed here on a walking holiday with some friends. We were just crashing for the night so didn't need anything too fancy. The place more than exceeded expectations though and mainly due to the food. Staff were friendly and all was in order, exactly what you'd expect in a small rural village. Even had a snug lounge with an open... More

an excellent place to stay. we have been on winter breaks here before and standards have always been maintained. Welcoming staff and owners. A pleasant bar. Food very good. Only thing we found was a mattress firmer than we are used to, which is a matter of personal taste. A good base for exploring the area.
