Lovely room, great food, and friendly service led to a really enjoyable stay. Facilities were excellent and we did not feel the star rating did this hotel justice.The location was perfect to explore the Northumberland coast. perfect for our romantic break

Just returned from a three night stay. The hotel was great and the staff were very friendly and welcoming. The room we had was ideal and amply big enough for us and our two spaniels, it was quiet and clean. We were on a DB&B deal and the meals were delicious and very filling, and the service was excellent. Our... More

We stayed at the hotel for 2 nights and at the end our only thought was that the stay was not long enough. The accommodation was excellent very clean and comfortable. The staff were without exception friendly and helpful and eager to help. The DB&B rate was fantastic value and the food was to die for not a single complaint... More

My friend and I had a lovely stay here - 3 nights bed, breakfast and evening meal. We found the hotel warm and welcoming, the rooms comfortable and spotlessly clean, staff very friendly and helpful. The food was excellent, with a good choice and variety. It was all freshly prepared and cooked, but we never had to wait long, and... More

We stayed here for one night and had a very relaxing time. The hotel has a very welcoming, homely feel. Drinks by a real fire followed by an excellent meal. A good selection of beers including local real ales and a menu with loads of local produce, this hotel is a credit to the area.

Our four day stay was quite pleasant and the room was very clean. However it was tired like the decor and some things just shouldn't get past the daily inspection, like the basin plug which clearly hadn't worked for a long time so it was impossible to fill the basin. The reception area was straight out of Dickens and at... More

We have just spent a wonderful three night break at the Dunstanburgh Castle with a couple of friends. They discovered it about four years ago and while we don't share their interest in walking holidays we were tempted by their description of the hotel and the area. The hotel was everything they had promised, charming and comfortable, and set in... More
