Pre retirement I traveled very frequently internationally and stayed in some of the worlds greatest hotels. And largest transit camps. So, I have a distorted view of excellence coupled with low expectation. The Dunstanbergh Castle is lovely. Small, well kept, family feel, friendly. Well located for doing the east coast which is splendid too. Super food. After just three nights... More

We had a really lovely lunch here, sitting outside in the lovely well-maintained garden on the opposite side of the road to the front of the building. I appreciate we were fortunate with the weather, but I suspect the food would have been equally good eaten indoors in the very nice surroundings of the hotel restaurant. The staff were extremely...

My wife and I had a lovely 3 night stay, with our dog Micky, at the Dunstanburgh Castle Hotel, where we were all made very welcome. The décor is very traditional, possibly dated, but is more than compensated for by the friendly and enthusiastic staff.

My Wife and I had an overnight stop here when recently visiting Northumberland, what an excellent choice. We had a pleasant room, clean and tidy, with all facilities. We enjoyed an evening meal plus breakfast the following morning and found the choice and quality of the food superb. Couple this with friendly staff and a delightful location for seaside and...

Having been recommended the Dunstanburgh Castle we were not disappointed. The accommodation was first class, with friendly staff. The food was excellent and was served by very pleasant and efficient staff. The location of the hotel was superb within easy reach of many places of interest.

Had a nice stay at the hotel food in the restaurant was good with a vegetarian option which was welcome staff very friendly. Hotel was good overall. A few finishing touches required to bring up to standard tears in the net curtains in both rooms we stayed in.

We booked Dunstanburgh Castle hotel last minute, whilst on a whirlwind tour of the Northumberland coastline. They were extremely helpful, friendly and accommodating on the phone and during our one night stay. We shared a room with 2 single beds and a pull out double for my children. The room was clean and tidy. We are in the restaurant. The... More
