Once again a super relaxing break was encountered at this superb, close to the coast, hotel. The food was of the highest quality, as always, and the service and friendliness of the staff was first class.

We have just returned from another very good and pleasant stay -the accommodation, friendly and very pleasant approach by all staff is a great credit to all- of all the staff we dealt with the service and enthusiasm by Katy was exceptional nothing was too much bother. The food was once again very good. Recommend without exception.

We found the hotel to be well appointed with nice rooms/bathrooms. The wi-fi was only available in the residents lounge, and we felt that the food in the residents dining room was below par. We were on a dinner bed and breakfast rate, otherwise we would have tried one of several restaurants nearby. The breakfast was good.

Good hotel in a great location, lots of places to visit nearby and a wonderful unspoilt beach. Good sized rooms, breakfast choice excellent and was the evening menu. Reception staff could have been a little more friendly.

This was our 6th visit to the hotel. As ever, we were most warmly welcomed by the staff who do their best to make guests feel at home.

A friendly and comfortable hotel. The range of choice on the dinner menu is good, as is the quality of the food served. The breakfast menu is also good. Service is friendly and efficient. Location is quiet and good for access to walks along the coast. Walking along the coastal path to Craster via Dunstanburgh Castle for lunch and then... More

A warm and hospitable hotel. The bedrooms were quiet, attractive and comfortable. The staff were professional and very friendly and the cooking was really superb; the fresh quality of the ingredients was striking at every meal and local sourcing much in evidence in the delicious tastes and textures.

I have been here twice. The rooms are comfortable and the food is good. The hotel is situated in a quiet, picturesque location near the coast in Northumberland. There are good attraction within reach by car as well as walking. A really restful, lovely stay.
