My husband and I stayed at Dunstanburgh Castle Hotel to celebrate our wedding anniversary. We were welcomed by Lucy on Reception and shown to a clean comfortable room. Dinner that evening was very pleasant and the staff were friendly and efficient. We would definitely return to this hotel and would thoroughly recommend it to others.

All went very smoothly, nice place, friendly staff. The room was clean and comfortable. The breakfast I had there was great. It's very near a walk down to the beach, and there's a little shop just round the corner. Recommended!

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

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
