3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

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 !

We were visiting the area for an Easter Sunday christening and needed a bed for the night. I found the Hope and Anchor on an internet search and gave them a ring to see if they could accommodate a family of five in one room, a tall order for such a busy weekend. Their outstanding service started on the phone... More

We stayed one night and have a baby under 1. The staff were very friendly and the room was a good size and a cot was provided. Food was very nice and a lovely breakfast and highchair put at the table ready for us when we got down.

Arrived late in the evening, nowhere to park, the 19year old manager said we could have his place when he went home shortly after we arrived. This was a very disappointing return trip. Alnmouth itself is a gem but as for the Hope and Anchor, we shall never return again. The room was so small that my partner burnt his... More

This was a jolly little B&B with a fabulous location, a few minutes from the sea. Extremely good value when we stayed. Unfussy, comfortable enough for a good night's sleep, whilst providing those little extras such as tea, coffee, hot chocolate and biscuits. Ate at their Italian restaurant, which was good fun with a warm and pleasant atmosphere. I would... More

Just returned from three days at hotel. Room was very clean and had everything we needed. Staff were helpful and friendly. Food was great. Perfectly situated for visiting Howick gardens and long walks on a pristine beach. Would we return? most certainly.
