Our welcome was friendly and our room large and comfortable although nowhere to hang clothes. Plugging in the kettle was difficult as the lead was too short - but we overcame! Breakfast was served around a communal table which encouraged conversation with fellow guests but its presentation was definitely lacking compared to other B & B's we stayed at over... More

While looking for the post office in Brampton, stopped in the TI who helped us find a bed and breakfast at late notice. There were two couples, we loved the house, quite old but maintained beautifully. Jane, the owner, was just lovely and is an accomplished artist as well. I was especially happy because there were washcloths in the bathrooms!... More

Despite having often used Tripadvisor to help select accommodation, I have never before felt the need to post a review. But I feel I must write to redress some seemingly very unfair remarks about Oval House made by amongst others a “Senior Contributor” and a “Top Contributor” (whatever do these terms mean?). My wife and I enjoyed a very happy... More

I never check this site before booking our cycling group vacation there. All I heard en rout to hotel was how bad the review were on trip adviser from my friends. When we got there everyone was surprised, it was perfectly fine. Building is built in !740's so it has some funky listed stair cases but on the other hand... More

We stayed at this hotel during our Hadrian's wall walk. It is a taxi ride away from the wall but very central to the town. Our room was very large with a bath (but no shower) which was good to soothe our aching legs. It was clean and had all the basics. We had a choice for breakfast and it... More

This has to be one of the worst B&B's I've ever had the misfortune to be booked in to. We were cycling Hadrians Wall cycle way in July and this was the first over night stop on our trip. We had two rooms booked as there were four of us, we were given the choice of a bath or shower... More

We were booked here for one overnight stay whilst cycling Hadrian's Wall. The room allocated to us was cramped, dirty and uninviting. The shower had a flannel hanging from it, the tea/coffee making facility was unhygienic i.e. dirty kettle, cups and teaspoons situated in the corner of the room on a dirty table. Cheap tea and coffee was provided. The... More

Cycling Hadrian's Wall and this was meant to be our first overnight stop. But...rooms filthy. Bathrooms disgusting, thick mould around shower and bath. Dirty toilet. Dust pretty much everywhere. This place hasn't been cleaned in a long time. We were expected to lock expensive bikes outside against railing next to main road! Lack of welcome very evident. One room had... More

We've been walking the Hadrian's Wall and have been staying at B&B's since we left Wallsend, so we have some previous experiences with other B&B's to compare the various B&B's against. Our first experience once we walked through the doors was the mess of the house. The family have small children, but our home was never this untidy with our... More
