Ideally situated in the little village of Alnmouth, just down the road from Alnwick, where. a short stroll from the inn took you to a beautiful long sandy beach. The people at the inn were very friendly and helpful. Our room was large and clean and comfortable. Our dog was not just welcomed, but also no charge for dogs here... More

On arrival we were upgraded to the family room to accommodate our 2 dogs (as it wasn't booked) at no extra cost. Friendly greeting by the owner and her little pooch. First impressions left us pleased. The room was a little out dated in relation to decor, and the en suite has no window however the room and en suite... More

Room was far better than I had expected though probably a touch on the small side for a long stay. Breakfast was very good, with order taken previous night and cooked specifically for you. The kippers are worth having. Better than any I have tried before. The hotel prides itself on fresh local food so probably the kippers are smoked... More

This is not a hotel but a pub with rooms. There was no reception and we had to wait a long time to check-in whilst customers were served drinks at the bar where loud music was playing continuously. Our room was directly above the bar and, had we stayed, the loud, thumping music would have made it impossible for us... More

Having read some recent reviews had me wondering. Staff were perfectly fine and always polite. Room itself was good (seagull) although I did not appreciate people in the beer garden being able to look directly in and the piped music downstairs thudded away. Breakfast was ok. Free Wi-Fi was a plus.

We booked by phone for a family lunch for mid day and informed them we would arrive early for drinks before lunch. Arrived around 11:30. Door was open and when we entered the premises cleaning was in progress. Very friendly greeting from the dog but the welcome stopped there!!!. The lady behind the bar looked at us in surprise and...

We were greeted with long faces and we're told to come back after 2pm. Our room (Curlew) stank of chip fat and was boiling! The staff are openly unhappy about their workplace. A bad experience which we will not repeat.

We were disappointed with this inn, contrary to the reviews. The rooms were poorly equipped and hot, with the usual heavy bedding in spite of the heat. Nowhere whatsoever to put luggage or personal effects except the windowsill. Nowhere to put anything at all in the bath. The room faced the sun during the day and was hot and stifling.... More

The location is totally unspoilt, a step back in time with the friendliest of staff. Wonderful! Looking forward to our next stay there. Make sure to visit Beaches restaurant which is close by. A gem not to be missed !
