We visit Northumberland regularly usually staying in a holiday cottage with our two labradors. Looking for somewhere to stay for a weekend visit, we found the Hope and Anchor in picturesque Alnmouth. People and dogs had an equally friendly welcome from the staff, the room was clean and comfortable, and breakfast well cooked and well presented. The sausages are particularly... More

My partner and I stayed as a Groupon deal on Saturday 10th January. Like the previous review we received a warm welcome and sat by the fire with a glass of wine. We were shown to our rooms and were told that they were going to refurbish them soon. I thought they were comfortable enough and have stayed in far... More

We stayed here after seeing an offer on groupon. We were made to feel welcome from the very beginning. We had a drink in the pub and the owners were lovely friendly people. We had a meal which was divine and would definitely eat there again. We stayed in the Kittiwake room which was nice and very spacious. Will definitely... More

Rooms are ok but shower very cramped. Stay spoilt by constant throb of music from bar below. Not sure did not realise that when the bar had ceiling speakers installed that the bass could be heard at such a volume I'm not sure. But then the rod do seem to be second rate to the restaurant. Breakfast good though.

I reviewed the Hope and Anchor about 18 months ago when it was a pub of real character where locals mixed with holidaymakers in a friendly relaxed atmosphere. There were English and Italian food options, the latter from the adjoining Italian restaurant. Alas, the Hope has been the subject of a makeover which has converted the bar into what is... More

Quite a few of us stayed here for a friend's wedding which was nearby. Very small hotel but very nice. We had a really good time here. Rooms were ok . Beach nearby and a few other pubs if you fancy a change. Would reccomend

The Hope and Anchor has changed a lot since we last visited it about 12 years ago, but it is still a charming B & B, with the added addition of 2 really good restaurants. The staff were lovely, and happy to make sure that you had everything you needed. The food was gorgeous, and can't understand the poor reviews... More

We had a lovely very large room 'Sandpiper' - very comfortable big bed, perfectly adequate shower room and no 'paper thin walls' mentioned in previous downbeat review. Good welcome from barman-cum-reception and a pleasant young lady showed us to our room. We chose to eat in the bar dining area rather than the Italian restaurant adjacent and were very impressed...

Really nice experience - good customer service. They have obviously responded to some of the feedback on here and made some improvements. The room was very clean and nicely decorated, the food was great and the people were very friendly. Would recommend the Hope and Anchor to anyone. Lovely place to stay.

The place feels ok when you walk in, but the upstairs is just awful...like going back to the 70's. Just can't believe places like this still exist. Depressing decor, paper thin walls, grim bathroom, with some damp patches. To be fair the staff were very nice, but they have to work with this stupid system where you have to fill... More
