This was our 3rd visit to the H&A, the last one being 3 years ago. The room we had then was 'ok' & when my wife told me the place had been refurbished (ok she read it wrong) we were eager to return, however it's a disappointment. The bar/restaurant has been refurbed & is now an 'upmarket' Italian bistro type... More

Stayed here for weekend with friends. Our room it was extremely shabby and grubby. The carpets were heavily patterned, one wall was patterned in a lurid flowery paper, another yellow, another in gloss red. The bathroom had paper falling from the walls and was dirty. Infact the one good feature as a door in the far corner which allowed you... More

Called in to sample their food during happy hour (& half) We were not disappointed. We sat in the bar/restaurant end as this is dog friendly & we ordered from their Italian restaurant menu. My husband & myself both had pasta dishes but different kinds. The food was impeccable, it would have been overpriced if not for the happy hour... More

Bedroom was dated and in need of refurbishment. Wifi connection unfortunately was I available on both evenings due to the busy restaurant below. The staff were very friendly the breakfast was not very tasty the first morning but great on the second morning. If you wish to have a meal in the restaurant be sure to book. We managed to... More

stayed for one night and shocked to see an avocado bathroom suite. Rooms badly need updating. However Sunday lunch with a large family group was fabulous. Special mention to the head waiter who was wonderful. He had a great personality and couldn't be more accommodating. The chef was quite rightly proud of his yorkshires, the pork and crackling was sublime... More

Utterly ridiculous pricing - 2 draught ciders, 1 pint shandy and glass of lemonade came to£17.15!!!!!!! I queried prices as there was nothing on display and found out the ciders and shandy were £4.85 each and the lemonade £2.55 Will most definitely not be returning

If I was judging this solely on the food I would have given it five stars for the quality , presentation and the imaginative cooking. We had hoped to stay for two nights but as there were five of us they could only put us up for one. We had dinner our arrival all of us choosing various fish dishes... More

Stayed here on 12 July for a one night cycle stop as we were cycling from Berwick to Sunderland. We chose this hotel as it had safe parking for cycles. We checked in at the bar and was basically just handed the room keys. We stayed in a family room called Lapwing it was very tired to say the least... More

The twin room had been made up with the beds put together to make a double. Becky offerred to separate the beds and reinstate room as it had been... More
