Hotel is very hospitable with helpful staff, but it is quite dated in parts and would benefit from some careful pragmatic investment. Breakfast - you sit at designated tables with your room number on, something I really do not like. The room was itself reasonable and clean. Wifi only available in common areas downstairs. Overall I would say it was... More

The cottage suite was well appointed but would benefit from a more comfortable sofa bed. The service was friendly and efficient; the choice of food was adequate and although the dinner main course was not always well executed the breakfast could not be faulted

Thoroughly enjoyed three nights bed and breakfast with dinner each night in the bar as we find it difficult to complete the courses in the dining room. This is our second visit this year and again enjoyed our stay. Hotel staff are pleasant and make youvery welcome. Alex M.

Have stayed at Dunstanburgh on numerous previous occasions over the last 6 years as we love the area so much. Another very pleasant stay but this time in one of the cottage apartments as we brought our dog this time. Very nice apartment, just the right size and cosy and well fitted out. As usual, good wholesome food and good... More

Had a great 3 days in a lovely hotel. Staff are excellent, Relaxed but very professional atmosphere. Northumberland is fantastic and this hotel is ideally placed to cover it all. Always so where to go.

A very wet afternoon saw us taking shelter at The Dunstanburgh Castle Hotel. It is cosy, warm and has a lovely drawing room where we sat to read after our lovely dinner with local specialities. We recommend kippers for breakfast!

Based upon friends recommendations booked two nights dinner, bed and breakfast, then decided to add an extra night. Good parking facilities.Friendly warm welcome but slightly perturbed by the request we eat before seven or after eight thirty. Soon discovered the reason when twenty seven "rousing ramblers" entered the dinning room at seven thirty!. Liked to have said we enjoyed their... More

We had two lovely ads and nights at the Hotel . The room was a good size with nice views of the village. The staff were all very nice and nothing was too much trouble they also made our dog very welcome. The Breakfasts and Dinner were excellent and the biscuits they served with a cup of tea were lovely.... More

This was our first stay in this hotel. The staff were friendly and the facilities good for the type of hotel. We had a room facing the village which was clean and large enough without being spacious. Good bathroom. No problem with noise despite facing the main road through the village. There was good wi-fi in the lounge but generally... More

We had the most wonderful break at the Dunstanburgh Castle Hotel. I don't normally do reviews but this place deserves a very positive one in my view. I have no complaints at all. The area is beautiful. The hotel, staff, food, price were fine. We shall be returning. It doesn't have modern decor ... so what. It is cosy and... More
