We stayed at the Hope and Anchor a couple of years ago, so we were expecting a pub type interior. Slightly surprised at how much it has changed as instead of the seats in the window and relaxing atmosphere it now looks like a Little Chef, albeit a Little Chef trying to be a bit more upmarket. We were quickly... More

It was like stepping into a 1960's room it was desperately in need of a huge makeover although to be fair the staff were decorating the bar area. On a plus side the food was delicious and the staff were friendly.

We booked through Groupon and to be honest did not have high expectations due to only paying £49 for two people B+B for one night. Being regular visitors to Alnmouth the outside always looked a bit old and tired, however On walking through the door into the bar/restaurant area we were quite taken aback, the area was clean and contemporary...

We decided last minute to go for a weekend break, we're so glad we found the Hope and Anchor. the seafood was excellent and the staff welcoming and friendly. Some parts of the building still need refurbishing but the rooms and public areas were well maintained. Next time we want to have a weekend by the sea we will definately... More

We stayed two nights in a twin room, 'Curlew', and although the room was small it was comfy. Food in the restaurant was particularly good. Let the shower run a while to be sure of hot water! Also the wifi is free but very sketchy? No view from the window but hotel was in Main Street of very lovely Alnmouth.... More

my wife and i stayed using a Groupon voucher. We were welcomed very warmly by Adam who showed us to our room '"Puffin". The room was fine for us with a massive bed. An improvement would be a shelf or two in the bathroom . The breakfast,which had to be ordered the night before , was faultless. We will definitely... More

Really nice location in the NE and great to be near the beach. Good value rooms. Breakfast really lovely, too. However, the two dining options (seafood and Italian) are marketed differently but are in fact the same place - and this makes menu-choosing a bit confusing. The décor needs to be more up-to-date and consistent, too, as it lacks continuity... More

We arrived on a Wednesday evening, having informed the Hope & Anchor of our expected arrival date at the time of booking. We arrived at 7:30pm and were greated by a member of staff within a few second of entering the bar area. Whilst... More
