We have stayed several times in the two bedroom cottages at the hotel. They are outstanding in every way. No criticisms, just superlatives. All three cottages are equally clean, well equipped and comfortable.

Clean and looked to be recently refurbished room and ... lots of tea bags. I plan to book here for a weekend in November.... More

On arrival we received a very warm welcome and shown to our room which was ready early. The hotel was spotlessly clean; the room, although small, was very comfortable and pleasant, except the view of next door's wall! The menu was changed daily and the food well presented and very good.

My wife and myself found the hotel as excellent as it has been on our last two visits, both the food and staff were at the standard that we have come to expect from Dunstanburgh Castle Hotel and " We Will Return ". Many thanks Ken and Jean D.

Excellent accommodation and good service.Our only regret was that we were unable to have dinner in the hotel as the dog was not allowed in the bar.(or restaurant of course). We had chosen the hotel as dog friendly and were disappointed in this one aspect. Most of the bars round and about did allow dogs in the bar so we... More

Another fab holiday at the DCH, we've stayed so many times it's like a home from home. Everyone us so friendly, the rooms are spotless, food is great. The DCH is a really good base for seeing all that Coastal Northumberland has to offer.
